3m double sided tape, the rubber gray or black ones. not the foam white tapes.

+1. Tischer also sells the Betalink adhesive recommended for installation.

I end up using the glue, be careful when you buy the glue and check for expiration date.

I used betalink and some clamps to hold it down overnight as it dried. Make sure you have a roll of paper towels to clean up extra betalink residue which oozes out as you press it down.

Just put on my CF spoiler with Betalink and it is really messy. During application, it was going well until the very end. The tube of Betalink disconnected from the tip dispenser and got everywhere. Be careful with the Betalink tube.

You want to have it on the actual "rim" where contact is made between spoiler and car.

I would lay it on the car first and put blue painters tape on the trim of where you want the spoiler to sit. This way when the adhesive tape is exposed you wont have to worry about the positioning as much.

+1 and make sure the trunk and spoiler where the contact points are are clean when installing
