Is it a DIY job to apply the spoiler to the trunk? And does it come with adhesive tape on it? How difficult a job is it to get it on and aligned perfectly?

Thanks,
Tony

Yeah it's super easy, the hardest part is aligning it to where you want to the edge of the trunk lid. I did mine right at the edge and Flippped did his about 1/2" in from the edge like on M3's.

It is very easy to instal just make sure your trunk lid is wax free (use dawn dish soap) and prep teh area with isopropyl(sp?)

I did an M5 wing on my own before WW started doing theirs and this is how I did it... stayed on just fine :)

Guys - I ordered my spoiler about 3 weeks ago..there was a bit of a delay because I forgot to include the color code for my car. At any rate, I noticed this discount and asked Joe at Wetworks if I could cash in.....not a problem (since it had not shipped) - Paypaled some $$$ right over wothout hesitation.

Service at its finest.

I'll post pics once I slap it on my LC7V Anthracite Blue B5.5 :D

Very easy install, I'm very satisfied with mine.
Here are some tips:

- Before installing the spoiler, clean the trunk surface with rubbing alcohol.
- Place the spoiler where you want on your trunk (make sure it's centered and it sticks out beyond the trunk edge in a consistant fashion).
- Using low-tack masking tape, mark off the ends and the inside edge of the spoiler on the trunk (this will be your guide for easy and proper placement of the spoiler easy, which is crucial since once it is stuck on it is there for good).
- Use a hairdryer to warm up the trunk surface and the spoiler (this will ensure the best adhesion).
- Peel off the adhesive backer and start at one side of the trunk and work your way to the other side, following the masking tape guides and pressing firmly. A second person will come in handy to prevent parts of the spoiler from accidently touching anything.
- Avoid getting your car wet or washing for the next 48 hours.

THis is too cool! Has anyone installed one as a roof spoiler, adhering it to the very top of the rear window? Any pics?
