I've tried applying mine twice - fully prepped w/ 3m cleaner, then applied heat gun to warm up, then attached. It has pulled away at the top right corner (when viewed from the back of the car) for about a length of 2 inches. I really don't want to drill into the bumper there as it would look "wonky." Any ideas on better attaching it? Appreciate any help.

I have had no such problems with fitment and would definitely not recommend drilling in a visible location or adding any holes to the original bodywork. I used a Capet tape adhesive approved for outdoor use.

Understood. However, mine is pulling loose at the top corner where a screw would be seen. I'm trying to see if there are any alternatives that could augment the double-sided tape that is failing.
What did you use to stick it? The issue I find with VHB is not getting it to stick, it's getting the damned stuff to come off IF you press it on hard enough and long enough to activate it

Just received and installed my MD diffuser today using 3M VHB and and a couple supplied screws underneath the bumper at the corners. Seems pretty strong so far. I must add that shipping from Maxton UK was super fast! Ordered on the 12th and delivered today.

Wanted to follow through on this in that I did go get the outdoor carpet tape, removed ALL the old stuff (what a PITA) and reapplied w/ a heat gun to insure everything was warm and tacky as possible. It's been a month now and it is holding perfectly! Thank you for the suggestion.
