Make sure that you dont damage the rubber seal surrounding the rear light. Mine was glued. Quite easy to do when yanking it out.
Secondly check the underside of your boot. I had to drill a hole into the underside of the boot for the hydraulic strut (the one that holds the boot open) in order to fit it as there were no stock holes there. Be very careful here as if you apply too much pressure when drilling you can go straight through the plastic sub frame into the carbon... El disastro.

One strut is enough to hold the boot open by itself due to the weight reduction. I just removed the other one. If you attach the other one as well you may well have your boot flying open when you release the latch for it.

Lastly you will need to measure accurately for your rear wing as you want it dead straight and equally positioned left to right when you attach it to your new boot. The easiest thing is to remove the wing element from the stands, attach the stands and then re-fit the wing back on them.

Hope this helps.
