There are quite a few used (pre owned) MY spoilers on eBay. Just curious, why are they being removed by the owners? Is there a problem or wind noise or something?

I've seen people complain that they aren't staying on. I wonder if some people either get a new one and sell the old one, or just say screw it and keep it off.
I’ve asked Tesla a couple times if I could have the spoilers that they replaced on my cars due to them not adhering properly (one S and one P3) and they wouldn’t let me. I’d happily replace the 3m adhesive for what Tesla charges if not a warranty claim. They said the needed to tag them for the warranty credit.

As a PUP owner here, lets just says the OEM spoiler SUCKS, I am on my4th one, it is too stiff and has imperfections on fit, so it has to be exactly placed perfectly to the 3m tape won't catch on, since the hatch is so thing, metal wise, too much flexion can have the edges separate and from there on it starts ungluing. M3P also has had issues. Some don't bother to put it and sell it off, others are the old ones, Tesla basically dumps the old ones.

I have one I purchased off eBay for $75.

People sell them for a few reasons.

1. They get PPF and the installer takes it off.
2. It lifts in a corner. (Not always)
3. People are going to junk yards and pulling them off to sell for money.
4. Some people just don't like the look.

This silicone around the top and corners after it was on to keep water from running in.

So as a non-performance owner that has uberturbines, red calipers, acceleration boost -- I guess I should give up the dream of getting a spoiler?

Okay so DO NOT buy Hydratase spoiler. Its cheap. And thats it. Fitment is horrible on the edges. I even bought 3M extra strength double sided tape, both edges just wont stay on unless you use silicone type of adhesive and thats no no for me. And it is hydro dipped carbon, not an actual carbon fiber. Picture on their website is false advertising as it looked like real CF. Going to give to my kid and tell him its CF toy samurai sword

Do you have a pic or two from different angles? Thinking of buying this spoiler. Thanks!


You dont want it. I returned mine as well. Looks very cheap and has tons of bumps and irregularities from the poor hydro dip and item condition prior to dip. I have a example attached. Item is covered all over with20210203_205835.jpg 20210203_205835.jpg 20210203_205835.jpg 20210203_210113.jpg 20210203_205741.jpg 20210203_205835.jpg 20210203_210113.jpg 20210203_205741.jpg these issues.

Wow, that totally sucks that yours came in the condition it did. I would have returned mine too if it looked like that.

For the price, I wasn't expecting pure 100% CF. It would have been quite a bit more. And for me, other than the corners not being 100% flush (they're lifted a few millimeters on the corners), I'm satisfied.

Obviously, this seems to be a YMMV situation.
