    I had mixed thoughts too but I wanted to order from the US instead of China so I went with the Texas one and I like the glossy look.

    The one from Texas has a 30 return policy. You're just out shipping. Worth 20 bucks for me to have tried.

    Thanks. I had no issues with the install. Has been two weeks and heavy rains, both corners are secure with no lift whatsoever in the corners.

    I have not asked Tesla but has anyone asked them to change the car avatar to reflect the aftermarket spoiler?
