I can’t be certain from your photos but looking at the Rpi installation photos, now you’ve taken the old part out, the scoop screws in to the area where you have the two holes from the part removed.

Below link to instructions will hopefully help

Hey Dan!
Thanks for the post.
The holes are way bigger than than the screws, and they don’t line up. I can only assume the coupe scoop is different, unless I’m being really thick, which is more than possible!

You definitely don’t use the original holes, but afaik the scoop is screwed in to that area, just not into those holes

I fixed mine in place with extra thick number plate sticky pads first then put screws in. 👍

No just the near side kidney grill gives you all the room you need. You do need an long screw driver though.
