    okay, i managed to get up to step 7 after reading it agin. i have no idea what "Cut the plug off and crimp some connectors on there. Cut the excess wire off the brakelight wire and crimp some opposite connectors on it." means though. crimp?

    Put the wire into the small end of the connector and basically squash the end with the wire in it onto the wire so it can't come out. I use pliers cause I'm cheap, but there are crimping tools available.
    Hope that helps.

    Or instead of using connectors you can just solder the wires together, or be really dodgy and twist them together haha.

    Can you use the led out of the spoiler? Iv'e seen it done before and it gets mounted where the number plate lights are, I'm not sure if it's legal or not but would probably be better then just having the two side ones

    how would you recommend taking off the spoiler when some stupid f**k (most likely the guy i bought it off) has cracked the side of the hole in the spoiler? the bolt wont un screw and it just spins..not sure whether to cut the bolt in half or just leaving the thing on?

    Get someone to pull the spoiler up as youre undoing it or even push a wedge in between the boot and spoiler just nothing that will scratch the boot.

    LED is about $20

    Mine polished out completely, maybe yours had water trapped in there which stained the clearcoat.

    Taking mine off today, but I can't figure out how the hell to unclip the LED light... Is there a trick to getting it apart or am I going to have to cut it? :/

    get some alcohol (i used hand sanitizer :p) and put some on a rag and hold it on the tape to dissolve the glue and then try pull it off

    or buy a clay bar and it should do it
