Diffusers installation question

Hi, everyone.
I just traded in my f10 535i for a M6 coupe a month ago. I canít really explain how much I love this car.

Now, Iím considering to install a DTM carbon fiber diffuser from RWcarbon. However, I prefer to not remove the bumper, because there was a sad story on my f10.

I asked a well known shop in LA area to install the diffuser for me. But, they broke the water channel covers when they remove the bumper, so the water leaked into my trunk through a hole under the cover. Although the dealer replaced it for me, leaks came again and again.

Could some please give me advice for installing the diffuser without removing the bumper, or where can I get it done without troubles. Thanks!

Best,
Jerry

I don't know...but you can try asking the forum at the following link...they tend to do more body modification as well as tend to respond to posts quicker than here: https://www.6post.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=365

In fact, you might just scroll through or search their forum to see if what you seek has already been asked/answered.
