Mine was a quick / clean swap from stock to Anvil. Took about 5 mins.

I did have to open up one of my holes just a hair. Was NOT an issue and has been looking for years.

Had to open up a couple of holes with the ol drill.

This is common enough with the Anvil installation procedure.

For some, this may be a butt puckering experience.

Make sure to have some touch up paint on hand to touch up the hole/s after you open it up a little. You don't want any exposed raw metal .

I found the end pads are junk and on a hot day the glue turns to mush allowing the pad to shift. I'll be replacing mine with a better quality.

The holes don't quite line up 100%. Like others have said. Have touch up paint on standby after you open up some of the holes.

Idk about others but the "wings" of the anvil were rubbing really bad on the body of the car. Wish I had caught it sooner as it did do some damage after only a couple days :(. The pads didnt do much if anything to prevent it. I had to max out the rubber stoppers for the trunk way up to avoid rubbing. Just something to keep in mind!

the pads on mine are still stuck on for what its worth. Clean the bottom of the spoiler where the pads go with alcohol before sticking them on.
