M5 Spoiler installation question / clarification

I just picked up my M5 spoiler from the paint shop. I'm about to mount the tape to the spoiler when I became confused by the instructions.

Is the instructions saying I need to cut the tape out around the numbering or do I not put tape on the numbering section at all. See my pick to understand what I mean.

Red area represents the tape itself. So do use one long piece with center area cut out or do I use two separate pieces of tape?

I thought that was what you did. I was wondering if they did this for water movement? I can't understand why this needs to be done.

Did you use the BMW tape or the 3m scotch super mount tape from the auto store?

3M. You make a good point about water movement, but I cant see why you'd want one MORE place for water to hide when washing the car. Mine's been on for over a year and it works great, rain or shine.

I have decided not to install my M5 rear spoiler. It's brand new in the box, so if anyone is interested, it's for sale.

I have an after market spoiler that I would sell for $35. It's the black one pictured here. It just need to be sanded and paninted.
