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.

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.
