    Default Irmscher copy - bond, screw or bolt?

    What is the general view on fixing these front spoilers being as they don't come with a fixing kit?

    Any comments or advice welcome. I have read past threads on this, a few seem to have bonded them, other have screwed them on, others suggest bolting.

    Cheers

    Dave

    Mines bonded on with Sikaflex and its been whacked a good few times and its never budged. Also with sikaflex u can paint it too so it looks more like a one piece bumper.

    The only thing I was worried about bonding it was if it gets damaged (hope not but...) it would be a pain to get off!

    do you want to know how mine is held on..................

    No joke....

    Its cable tied. I drilled holes into the bumper and pulled the splitter in then tied it tight, you can not see them and if need be it can come off very easily! it has been on there for a good 4 months possibly more and is fine!

    Like i said you cannot see at all that it is cable tied, its that good of job
