I'll second that one! Followed instructions as far a torque settings, too tight!!! Busted both center bolts that are molded into the spoiler. I thought the first one snapping was the "click" my torque wrench makes. When the second one snapped I realized what had happened. Drilled what remained of the stud out, tapped, and installed with a stainless bolt from the hardware store.

I've been checking after driving in heavy rain to see if there's any leak. Seems to be good so far.

To those with a spoiler, how tight does it sit on the hatch? Any play at all?
