    In the description it reads:
    -Ready to install, comes with accessories for easy bolt on.

    Possibly bolt-on means 3M double side tape?

    If it actually looks like the spoiler that Tesla offers for $1,500 dollars then sign me up. Im going to try that on my wife's S since she doesn't have a P car!:D

    How did you order one? The website seems to be for resellers. Do they sell single units to end users? I filled out the inquiry form but it really seemed like it's meant for a dealer.

    I ordered one on Amazon.... Looks great on my white S... Looks identical to Tesla spoiler... Attached with 3M tape. Don't use the liquid if it comes with it, will seep out goop for months when it rains.

    Sorry - I was referring to the one mentioned by the OP
    @Cmer : I heard back from the people at the link you gave and they're quoting $118 USD (not $80) plus $66 shipping to Canada. Doesn't seem that much better than some of the aliexpress or amazon deals I've seen -- did you actually get it for just $80?

    I also emailed them directly, price quoted was US $118 with an additional $60 shipping charge to NY.

    The OEM Tesla trunk spoiler comes attached with 3M tape from the factory, as is usually provided when purchasing an aftermarket trunk spoiler.

    This is the one I got, but there are others on Amazon that look identical for a bit cheaper....mine came with 3m tape pre-installed, some extra 3m tape, and some goop to put on the car first....dont use the goop, it seeps out for months after when it rains. Just clean the trunk with isopro alchohol before installing, and use some of the extra tape (especially on the ends) to make it extra secure. Use painters tape to mark off the corners on the car first so you get it on the exact spot you want on the first shot. Looks identical to Tesla $1500 spoiler.

    How many pounds of downforce can 3m tape manage?

    I bought from Evannex Gotham Spoiler for Tesla Model S Beautiful work. Looks awesome. Yes, it's more $, but you don't see many and I like the "fin" look a lot. YMMV...

    Don't know about this one, but mine from Evannex using 3M tape is ON. I don't know how many pounds, but put it this way, I'm going to have to saw it off with fishing line when I turn the car in... It will not come off no matter how hard you pull (assuming it was applied correctly). :)
