    Wish I could use wrap...was told in MN wrap wouldn't last too long. That's a NICE wrap!

    Thank you!

    The worst for the wrap is burning sun. Even in Vegas the wrap is expected to last at least 3 years if sone correctly and if used quality material.

    Go to Aliexpress.com and search for “tesla spoiler”. Be prepared to lose many hours.

    Bought this from Aliexpress and it came with a two scratches on it. Notwithstanding the fact that I will always know it's there, they have suggested buffing it out with fine grit sandpaper along with a small refund. I'm not too keen on either, but do any of you have experience with sandpaper and carbon fiber? Would love to hear your feedback. Thanks in advance.

    I'd send it back. Fixing their problem doesn't encourage better quality control on their part.

    Get them to send you a new one and put a return label in the box so you can ship that one back. They may just say keep it.

    As for sanding I’d start backwards, start at 5000 grit if that doesn’t work go to 3000 then 2000 then 1200. I seriously doubt you need to go below 1200. All these can be found at auto parts stores. Then once it’s out work your way back up and use a polishing compound in the end.

    My goal would be to get them to replace it or just give it to me. The cost to ship it back might not be worth it to them

    I ordered the spoiler from AliExpress. It arrived with multiple scratches and flaws in the carbon fiber. It has been a hassle trying to get a refund.

    So the inexpensive JC Sportline spoiler has worked well for everyone?

    Anyone have a carbon fiber front bumper lip?

    Hi Tsportline, have you done any research to see how much this decreases range (if at all)?

    FWIW, I had purchased the eBay (jc sport line) carbon fiber spoiler and had it on my car for almost 2 years now; after about a year the gloss finish started hazing and now it’s bad enough that I’m planning on getting a whole new spoiler. I’ve machine polished it and nothing helps
    Should have spent more money from the get go on a more quality product! Now I’m planning on buying one from RW Carbon

    Same thing happened to me with the ebay spoiler - the lacquer starts to crack and chip off after the first year mark... Did you find a good replacement?
