Refresh Rear Set
PLEASE NOTE: For international orders, customs fees, duties or taxes are the sole responsibility of the purchaser.
With Tesla’s updates to the Model S, came not only a fresh take on the front end, but also a sleeker looking, more aerodynamically efficient revision to the rear bumper and diffuser. For owners of older Model S vehicles, these parts are incompatible, however we’ve developed the Refresh Rear Set as an update using Tesla’s newer design language with a bit of our own performance oriented twist. The Refresh Rear Set is a full replacement rear bumper cover and under diffuser panel for older Model S vehicles, which provides the great aero and smooth styling of the newer cars, but specifically tailored for earlier vehicles.

- A: No, the Refresh Rear Set is engineered to retain the existing rear reflectors and parking sensors (if equipped) that were included on your Model S from the factory.
- Q: How long does it take to install?
- A: The installation does not require any modification to the car and takes approximately 2-3 hours for a professional body shop to complete (painting time not included).
- Q: Do you offer the Refresh Rear Set pre-painted?
- A: Regarding pre-painted parts in general, we’ve seen past challenges when pre-painting parts and shipping to clients for install. The challenge arises in that there are often a small variances in paint color from car-to-car based on production date (Tesla has made subtle changes to their production painting process). Additionally, depending on exposure, the “aging” process of paint can vary widely, causing variances in appearance and color. For these reasons, among others, we always strongly advise that painting be done locally at a body shop that is installing the parts to the actual car. This is the only way we believe anyone can ever ensure a quality and proper paint match. We do have the capability to offer pre-painted parts, but we advise against it.
