This spoiler looks like it came right out of The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift, and, no, we don't mean that as an insult. Two, well-made, Carbon Fiber surfaces held together by twin fins, attach to the top of the R56 rear spoiler, simultaneously adding more downforce to the back wheels, and looking really cool while doing it.
This spoiler will only fit Cooper S Models of the R56
Assembling the Wing:
Putting the wing together is super easy. In the package are four parts: the lower wing, the upper wing, and two mirrored fins. Each level of the wing already has the screws you'll need pre-installed. To build the wing, remove the pre-installed screws and attach the fins on either side. Make sure not to screw down too hard because you'll need some wiggle room later. Second, attach the second level of the wing via the fins, then go ahead and tighten all the screws.
Installing the Wing:
To begin the install, you'll have to start by removing the old spoiler.
Begin by opening your trunk. At the top of the trunk there are five trim plugs. Pop each of those off with a screwdriver to access the bolts that fasten the spoiler trim to the trunk lid.
Remove each of the five bolts using a 10mm socket. We recommend using a deeper socket and, if possible, magnetic heads to remove these bolts. It's pretty easy to drop them into your trunk frame.
Now that the bolts are removed, the spoiler trim is only being held on by clips. Pry it off just like any other trim panel, and don't be afraid to pull pretty hard.
To attach the spoiler, you will need access to the base of the spoiler trim. The spoiler trim is attached to the base by a screw on either end of the back of the trim piece, and four trim clips that you'll have to pry back in order to separate the two trim pieces.
Now attach the spoiler to the baseplate of the vehicle's spoiler trim. It's easiest to fasten the two pieces together by screwing through the two small holes about an inch in from the large rectangle areas where the old spoiler sat.
To finish it all up, seat the old trim piece, now with the new spoiler attached, back where it came from and bolt the trim piece back on the trunk lid using the middle and two outside bolts
