Don’t know if this is of interest to anyone but it appears that Tesla is discounting the (real) carbon fibre end caps that go on the 19” and 20” wheels.

They’re now £150.00. That’s obviously still a chunk of change for what they are, but it’s considerably better than the £350 (?) they were before.

Have just pulled the trigger on a set myself.

£150 is actually a decent price, I think. It was (I think) £350 until recently. I was interested before, but not £350 interested.

The OEM CF spoiler, by comparison, costs $800 on the US website!

Yeah, in isolation it's a bit silly to spend that sort of money.. but carbon fibre "vanity" parts tend to be priced based on what the market is willing to bear anyway.

I man maths'd it to £37.50 per wheel, and it didn't seem so bad then.

And it sounds like the market was not willing to bear £350 :cool:

Packaging is very basic, and no instructions. Not sure how happy I would’ve been if I’d spent £350! That's probably just me being a bit snobbish though, as what else do you really need to have in the box...
