    It's only stuck on, use a thin blade like a wall paper scraper and take your time mate, should be fine. Don't pull too hard or you'll damage the paint. Not done it but seen how they are stuck on.

    Don't use any blades, the plastic is very thin. I took mine off my old XP and it will come off with ease if you heat it up.

    Use a hair dryer and gently prize it off. If you buy the Irmscher one I will 100% buy yours off you as your car is black like mine and I was sorting out ordering one this afternoon. But yours would save me the job of painting!

    Dont forget about the single screw in each wheel arch and as said its only adhesive and a sticky tape layer running alround the top of the spoiler.
