What was the main reason you chose those over some others like RPM and Tesmanian ?
Personally, price point and I like the looks of it. Doesnt look like its going to snap off if I took it on a road with deep potholes or fly off in the wind at high speeds 🤣

Being in stock was a plus as well

Update: Tesla mobile service came to my office today and fixed the misaligned wheel well panel. The guy couldn't have been nicer and also checked the tire pressure and cleaned some polish residue off the black trim delivery missed. He also gave me a handful of the plastic clips holding the mudflats on in case some pop out in the future. Total cost $0. Happy customer here!

I just installed the RPM Tesla ones - well, the fronts at least. Don't have the right size wrench for the bolt in the rear. The fronts took me about 7 minutes total. They look really good, nice and integrated.

Here's my Basenor ones from Amazon. They attach with the 2 push-pin clips as well as a large metal clip near the top. I prefer the look of these over the OEM ones -- can't speak to their effectiveness. I haven't bothered to install the rear flaps yet.

If you are going to attempt the rear install, please please please watch this video showing the correct was to safely remove the bolt. I was fortunate to ask one of our office facilities guys to basically just do it for me (and we followed this videos instructions).

Yes, that's how I knew I didn't have the right size tool to remove the bolt!

I had the same front flap experience. Seems like the key to the rear 10mm bolt is to unscrew it carefully with no torque. I still have not installed the rear ones

I had no issues with the rear 10 mm bolt with a standard rachet. No difference between front and back. (2021 MY March build)

Use lots of liquid wrench/WD. Start removing the bolt and shoot more in and tighten it back up to squeeze the liquid into the threads. At the sign of any resistance stop and re-apply more fluid and re-tighten the bolt a few turns before trying to remove it again. Go nice and slowly and try to apply as little pressure as possible.
