dang well thanks for the info, and the IS-F spoiler looks great

How to take off the spoiler if you want to?
Just pull it off? will it pull off the paint as well?

I have heard of people using a heat gun to help loosen the adhesive on the tape. Just be really
careful not to melt your paint off. Leave a lot of room between the gun and the area and its should be a slow and steady process. I would even try a blow dryer first to see if this provides the desired result. Once you feel it loosen, try some fishing line and run it underneath the spoiler. It takes some patience, but you don't want to do any damage to the car so tread lightly

I ordered my spoiler on Saturday and I'll have it tomorrow. I'll be installing it myself so will see how it goes.
