I can see where it doesn't quite line up but like you said its probably cause of the tape. Did the double sided tape come with the part? From a quality standpoint, the factory one has a lot more visual continuity with the lines of the car as the pattern runs front to back rather than some arbitrary angle. Does the right side one go the opposite direction so both sides at least look mirrored?
I have OEM splitters mounted with 3M tape. There's no gap if you place the tape slightly away from the edge, maybe 3-4mm. I don't think using Betalink vs. 3M tape will make a difference in fitment.
