Did they say why it's been so slow to reach in the midwest?
I talked to my service guy and he said Tesla only sent him 4 spoilers to Michigan ROFL
I had a mobile appointment set up for next Monday 6/24 to address my front passenger window clipping the chrome trim when opening the door, added spoiler problem to the appointment a few days ago too. Haven't heard anything from the service guys, so not sure if they will bring another spoiler or not. Will keep the thread updated.That definitely seems excessive
The pic with my hand in it I'm pulling away. The other pics are how it sits naturally. I'll try to get some pics in natural light here in a little bit, on vacation in San Diego and took the pics in the hotel garage.Is that 2nd pic after and 3rd pic before? Or are you pulling it away in that pic? The third pic doesn’t look bad.
Here's some better pics. On the top side it doesn't look too bad. On the bottom though you can see how it's pulled away on the passenger side. Also got a pic underneath the driver side for comparison.Is that 2nd pic after and 3rd pic before? Or are you pulling it away in that pic? The third pic doesn’t look bad.
If it pre-fits, I'm just at a loss on why it doesn't fit afterward,
Interesting. Tesla needs a new supplier. Carbon fiber is put into a mold, then autoclaved. It should be near-perfect. The only other half is the stamped trunk, but that can't be out of shape. It's formed under tons of pressure. I'm stumped.This is what I observed on my Mobile Service visit: The 7 or so spoilers that Mobile Service pre-fit on my trunk lid did not fit correctly. Visible air gaps were noticeable on every one, with some a lot worse than others. Some gaps were so big, two nickels could easily fall between the gaps.
This is what I was told by the Mobile Service Tech: Forcing an improperly fitting carbon fiber spoiler to conform to the trunk lid is only temporary and it will eventually lift....The other issue is, there is no documentation of batch numbers on the spoiler or the packaging. They can't tell if the spoilers they are getting are old or new production batches.
I'm back in the waiting queue for the next batch of spoilers to arrive. I did get my Dual Motor badge though..which I didn't have installed.
How difficult is this stuff to remove?I have gone thru 4 different spoilers with various degree of success. Either they just don’t fit well at all due to manufacture issues, or the edges lift up after a while. It is at this point that I have decided to re-install one of the best fitment spoiler using BMW betalink instead of M3 VHB tape. This is an epoxy like stuff that BMW recommends for installing their OEM Carbon Fiber spoiler and it has very strong holding power.

The end result is perfect. No more lift edges as the spoiler is pretty much glued tightly into the spoiler.
