there are screws that go along the bottom, and 2 pressure clips on each side of the lip. Go to the dealership and tell them you need the mounting hardware for your m3 lip, they'll give you everything you need, only a few bucks.

sweet man, thanks for the tip.. ur always on the ball!

i did look on the bumper and it became a bit more ovious what i needed to do, but that helps ill pick them up on my deliveries tomorrow umm u think they would have them in stock??

yup, they will. the pressure clips are used for the side skirts too.. they always have those in stock. the screws they might not have all of them, but you only really need 2 for now.. you can add the rest of them later when they get it in stock. enjoy your new bumper. :)

I just did my weak attempt at writing up my process of doing this from 2 weeks ago:
