I have a M3 evo spoiler that came with my car.

i dont really want to drill through the boot like i did with my last e36. Is there anything anybody could recommend instead? like some sealant or somthing?

Thankyou

Kyle:D

Sorry mate, but you trying to install the spoiler right? not remove one?

If you're trying to install, you can always spend a tenner and buy a mounting kit from your local dealer (last time I check was last year and they were available then) I believe the kit comes with mounting plates, protective film, and sealant for your screw placements. This should make for a trouble free installation, but you stillll have to drill holes in your boot lid.
But if your trying to install without drilling and screwing it in, I don't believe your going to get a secure mount with any off the shelf adhesive, and it will eventually come off.

Hope that helps mate :)

the only reason i dont want to drill is because i wouldn't be doing it myself and i dont really want to spend much money on it. Its not necessary but it will defo make the car look a bit nicer!

Is the evo spoiler with or without the 3rd break light?
I take that if you don't want to drill any holes it's one without.

If it is indeed one without a break light, then quite possibly it will be light enough for you to use heavy duty glue (or even the same stuff as what people would use to glue the roof spoiler on the rear screen)

I have glued a non 3rd break light evo spoiler on a collegues car and it's still on after 3 years :hihi
