    I bought 2 of those off Amazon for my Red MC S90D and the Blue S90D I traded in. They fit nicely on the S and the weave of the CF is consistent. Beats paying Tesla over a thousand bucks for a spoiler and I like the gloss CF better than the matte. Attaches onto vehicle with 3M double sided tape.

    I bought this one from this seller and it's great.... Just don't use the tube of prep goop that comes with it. 3M tape only. It will probably come with some tape already on it, and some extra. Use the extra to add some more to the ends and you will be fine. Lay it out and Mark with painters tape so you install it exactly where you want. I have a white S and it looks great.

    Thanks for posting this!! I need one of these for a P85D I'm getting next week.

    I love the spoiler on my P85+ but didn't want to spend $1k to Tesla for it.

    Anyone get the matte spoiler?

    Is the 2017 trunk lid the same as 2016?

    My friend bought his on Ebay. He didn't have any other info. Sorry about that. But As far as I know, JCSportline is a good outfit. And the one you linked to looks great.

    Well. I did it. My Model S 90D comes early March. I bought it this should come late February. I am excited to test the fit. I'll post install pics

    I unboxed my $288 spoiler today. Weave looks amazing, finish is flawless. My brother and I both looked very closely and it looks great so far. It came with plenty of extra 3M tape. My car has not arrived from Tesla yet, I'm anxious to see how it fits. I'll update my review once I install it.

    Here it is. If people want more pictures I can post. I didn't install it yet just placed it on the car. Perfect fit. Super great bang for your buck. You might notice I got a 2016 inventory P100D instead. Regardless it looks good for any model

    Just installed. What a snap! Super easy. I used painters tape to mark out the outline and a tailors cloth tape measure to verify it was centered.

    Hmm, I looked over the multiple offerings from this vendor, and in the purchaser comments section of Amazon there are
    mentions of fiberglass, and also of the ease of cracking it if you apply too much pressure in taping it into place. I'm wondering if this product is truly carbon fiber?

    It's real. I should have taken a picture of the bottom. It was clearly carbon fiber. It also feels and sounds like carbon fiber when you tap it. Sounds like my road bike. It's the real deal.

    It contoured to the car perfectly and required no force to apply it. Just a firm press for just the tape. No bending of the the product what so ever.
