Dealer tried to charge 3 hours to install M Pro Carbon Spoiler

Installation guide clearly states .75/1.0.

Unreal.

What have others been charged?

With the epoxy it requires, I opted to not do it. previously did all mine as it was just a 3M strip.

i had the m performance carbon small one installed at local dealer.....it turned into a nightmare.

car had to be sent to their in house bodyshop as they didn't have the right "tools" without scratching the car.

2 hours. Removal of stock and install new. 200 bucks. Not worth my time. Looks perfect.

My stock one is coming off a bit on one side. I have to press it back down on hot days. LOL.

That's the kind of job for a custom shop kind of guy. I have a friend who has an amazing custom shop. I am going to run by to get him to look at the wing for a possible remount. Or just leave it as is.

Don't agree, they had to put windshield wiper glue on mine cause 3m kept falling apart. Guess 3m can't handle 125+mph lol

I replaced the stock spoiler myself. I used 3M urethane windshield adhesive, and the M Performance spoiler won't budge. Not that I ever plan to, but I doubt getting this one off would be as easy as it was to remove the OEM spoiler!
