Replica CS carbon spoiler is slightly off one side is a bit more raised and 3m molding take doesn't hold spoiler on. Any tips?

betalink, just make sure its in the correct spot.

or get another one from a different more reputable company, or OEM

Might need to grind and shave some off the inside as well. Sometimes molds get wavy after so many uses. I think some have 20 limits set...like 20 per mold, which is part of the reason why carbon is so expensive

Given that CF and Fiberglass are pretty rigid You cannot expect to make it fit if the shape does not match that which you are trying to mold it to.
If its a Chinese deal then you are pretty much screwed getting those people to refund you, and waiting for a re-ship sucks.
Probably a better idea to try a different vendor, because if you install that thing its going to irk you. I know it would drive me absolutely mad.

Doesn't matter if it's a "Chinese deal" or not.

If you have a ill fitting part take it to a body shop, they can sand it down and align the part to the body of your car to give a better fit. IMO that is to be expected. It's not even that hard.
