DP tail tidy self install?

Hi there,

for those of you who have the dp tail tidy already installed. Did you do it yourself or got your dealership to do it for you.

I'm thinking if i can do it myself? I think it should be ok.

I did mine and I'm pretty bad at this sort of stuff.

NB: There were four screws missing - the two for the plate light and the one attaching the carbon fibre to the underplate - you might want to buy it from a dealer and have them open and check to be sure because there have been a lot of people reporting screws missing. (my dealer provided the screws) trickiest bit was pulling the wires and connectors up through the rubber bung without breaking them.

Do it yourself mate, you shouldn't be able to muck it up if you follow the instructions...

Why do you say that? It's 4 bolts from the inside, a couple on the tail, remove lights, put the new frame on , put in lights, and bolt it up?
