    Curious if anyone is getting spoilers installed from the Performance Upgrade yet? My local SC is saying "months" and maybe even into January of next year...

    Out of curiosity - Has anyone other than media outlets or test drive cars actually had these installed on theirs yet?

    I have a service appointment to have mine installed on 10/24 but I got the impression that were there openings prior to that, I could have had my spoiler installed sooner. This is in the northern VA area (Tyco Rd. location).

    Just sent an email to Delivery Manager asking for compensation if the spoiler and badges cannot be provided in a reasonable time period. Been 6 weeks already for me, which I consider reasonable to be able to provide something that should have come with the car I paid for.

    the fact that we haven't seen any out in the real world shows that they are still having quality issues and/or acceptable mass production consistency. i doubt it's a supplier issue, but who knows.....

    My car is at the SC and they said they still had no info. My money says we start getting them in January.

    Would seem odd that the Model S spoiler doesn't have any issues, but the 3 does? My bet is still on cash flow to show profitability coupled with supplier issues most likely related to cash flow as well.

    I'd bet my TSLA holdings that this is the case. They couldn't spare the cash during production/Q3 crunch and that supplier couldn't/wouldn't take terms.

    Good luck getting any compensation from them. I can't even get refund of my registration fee that they charged me at purchase and then told me to go register the car myself with DMV. Been 5 weeks. Apparently the check was cut 2.5 weeks ago but per them the delivery usually takes 3 weeks....Perhaps somebody is walking from Fremont with these checks to different states/cities

    I'm going to bet that it'll be available in Q 2019.
