I would advise you put a layer or two of tape on the tops of the rear wings above the brackets. As fitting can be fiddly and you may need to adjust to get the correct fit. Damage can be done to the paintwork so prevention is better than !!!!

It's a no brainer for me,IMO the standard rears suit the "M" perfectly but the fronts do not do the car justice.
