    i have fitted a couple of these mate, they are straight forward, you will get a set of sticky templates that allow you line up the spoiler on the boot and they stay in place so you can drill the four holes which will be 2mm pilots first followed by 8mm (i think) main holes. these holes will appear on the edges of the bootlip when you open the back up and this allows you to feed the self tapping bolts straight into the spoiler. i am only up the road from you, if you get stuck give us a shout.
