Is it hard to install a rear diffuser?

I'm about to order this rear diffuser:

http://www.bimmerkit.com/e92-perform...-diffuser.html

I just wanted to know what is involved in installing it. I am not experienced with cosmetic mods. On a scale from 1 to 10, how hard is it?
Thanks

I haven't done it, but I'm about to.

I looked under there and it looks pretty straight forward. There's bound to be a DIY on here too.

if you just take a peak, I'm sure you'll figure it out.

Unless there's something I'm missing

Takes like 10 minutes.

And maybe I'm wrong, but I've heard nothing but bad things about the duke dynamics diffusor....

I couldn't find a DIY on here, would you mind posting it?

I heard that in the past and that's why I'm also considering this one from m0d bargains.

Very easy. Get under your rear bumper and you'll see a few metal clips with hex nuts going through them, connecting your stock diffuser and bumper. Unclip these ones. Then you just need to push out on the tabs of your stock diffuser that go through slots in your stock bumper.

To fit the new one just follow the instructions in reverse.
