Lip install(mode carbon)?

Hey guys, I got a mode carbon lip used and was wondering how to screw it onto the bumper because lower splitter is in the way to get to the hole.
Do I reach in there from the rear end of the splitter and screw it in?
I was just thinking to separate the lip and the splitter apart and install it.
What do you guys think?

Any advice would be really appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

I've wondered how the build quality is on this piece. Can you post pictures of how you install and how rigid it is and fitment quality?

-Regarding install, talk to Sam @ Mode Carbon on forum, I'm sure he can whip a 1,2,3 step guide for you.

-I was talking about the Lip actually. I want to confirm through you that it's super awesome fitment, no gaps, or unnecessary amount of double tape to cover the gaps. Rigid, I specifically mean, when installed, does it feel and attach to the bumper like it's a part of the bumper and does not feel that it might snap off with a strong pull. My issue with lips is that they look good, but I'm not sure how well they hold up to the rigors of high speed driving on a track.

I believe some holes will need to be drilled to mount it to your factory screws. You will need to reach between the bottom and top portion of the lip to access the screws.

I've seen their products in person and can vouch for the quality! I'm looking to get a GTS lip on my 2013 E92 M3.
