Here's a shot of my screw improvisation. Must removed the top hatch spoiler to do it obviously. MUST USE VERY SHORT SCREWS!!!!!!!!!

Silver version







Black version



I was bored over the weekend and I finally decided to stick one of these on and it did not fit in the indent properly. CW, Did yours fit properly?

I believe they did. I have to replace mine actually. Have one left, I'll grab a pic after the replacement.

Mine is just slightly wider but not really noticeable...

Roof Spoiler

Awesome timing to renew this thread! I used a crappy windshield glue (oozed from leading edge) with screws on the imola with three screws to make sure there was no gap...hoping it stays on better this time around! Itís been on for 3wks without issue. Because I had a backup factory spoiler in imola and this add-on was cheap and can be found again easily, it was my first attempt. Second attempt with carbon spoiler, three screws, and a black gasket maker went on MUCH cleaner in Estoril. Pic of first attempt here. Pic of second to follow. Still need stickers...

Mine definitely fits better than that. I wonder if my stickers are different... or my recess on the spoiler.

Nah, that link wasn't where I bought mine from (those were NLA). Was just the first ACS emblems I found. I'll measure mine in a bit and report back.
