    We are launching a new product line in Carbon Fiber. What parts would you like us to make in carbon fiber!?

    Can you make a carbon fiber rear spoiler that fits better than the OEM one ? Have been looking for OEM alternatives .....

    Yes, that's one of the items that we've been developing (front lip anyone?). The issue of OEM fitment is notorious. We should be able to provide more details in a week or so, just in time for BFCM sale, **hint hint**.

    For interior, dash replacement for the wood. For exterior, side skirts and bumpers/rear diffuser are always nice :)

    These sound nice (and certainly look great!) but i think they are prone to damage given the location. I might consider buying one, but always think about damage in the back of my head.

    +1 for a CF front spoiler, actually more of a front splitter and not a wrap around of the bottom fascia.

    A better rear lip.

    I think Model 3 has some good front lip options already:
    Rear lip options are either,
    I wish someone made something that flows better with the car lines as the rear lip.

    A nice side blade set. Everything I've seen is too much, such as the Vorsteiner version. Maybe something along the lines of what you see on C63/E63, or F-Type R.

    Matte finish or Gloss finish on the carbon fiber. What are your thoughts?

    Matte and gloss both seem popular. If you can get an good oem replica spoiler made in under 6 to 8 weeks for less than 250 I think you may have good demand. I see a lot of people settling for Ebay due to lack of supply and Oem QC issues.

    Can you make a rear diffuser which actually increase the diffusing depth?

    Besides that, maybe a GT wing? A ///M style mirror cap? A carbon frunk lid?

    @SumaPerformance What about a tasteful set of carbon fiber mud guards?

    I have a set of Protect My Tesla carbon fiber splash guards and I doubt they'll hold up this winter.
    They way they are secured with double sided tape is the biggest problem. The contact patch for the tape isn't very big.

    Reasonably priced emblems would be nice.
