Hello and greetings,

Quick questions do you know what's the best way to fit the front bumper carbon fibre inserts? I saw they talk about using the Betalink adhesive but I am reluctant and would rather use some 3m type tape as it makes the mod reversible. (If anyone can guide me as to how to do and how long it would be appreciated)

Also I am not keen on the front splitter so will run just the inserts do you think it looks strange, I have looked at a few pics and like it, for reference the car is Sakhir Orange 2.

Thanks

I can’t remember how long it took as I fitted mine about 5 years ago. But I used 3M tape and they’re still there perfectly attached and intact.

As above 3M tape is all I used also.

Yes 3 m tape for my spoiler and it’s rock solid
You must clean any wax off first then alcohol wipe down
If your not lower get a splitter as it finishes the car off nicely I’ve never scraped mine

This time of year if you’re fitting using 3m tape it’s worth using a hairdryer or a hot air gun on the tape, as it helps the adhesive go sticky. Doesn’t stick as well when it’s cold.
