    a picture of the bolts is one thing .. a wing without a drilling guide is another thing all together....

    All i can really advise if you don't have the drilling template, is plenty of masking tape across the boot and careful measuring to get it central and to find the hole locations..my (copy) spoiler has M5 studs in it and I even had to drill and screw the centre post through the boot lid skin which neccesitated putting a 30mm hole in the boots inner stiffner panel as well..

    As the c#ckup potential is huge here, if you're in any doubt, get a bodyshop to whack it on for you..

    Is this the flat wing or the DTM version, I may have a pdf for the fitting instructions for DTM one.
    I bought the DTM one from e-styling, but used the irmscher instructions.
    Worked out ok

    hi thanks for the help

    but had thought after watching my son playing with play-dough
    do you think it will work if i place some dough on the boot where the rear wing will fit
    line it up and push it into the dough and it should leave a mark where the drills holes should be
    do you think it will work

    it may well do just that.....

    don't forget to seal around all the legs of the spoiler with 'silkaflex' or a similar product to seal the moisture out..
