    TSportline TSV Wheels: Airbrushing some replacement center caps in color-matched Satin Gray

    Hey, I put in "a splash" of thinner. I didn't measure it and I honestly have no idea of ratio... it was a splash. Or a splosh. A dribble. Sorry. Regarding sheen I honestly don't know. I never did any comparisons! For the sake of $10 and a few minutes it's absolutely worth it!

    22 MYP Tires/wheels options

    The black OEM Tesla center caps can be bought here on TSportline, but they're $160 per set of 4. You can get black blanks on Amazon and eBay, but I can't vouch that they'd be a good match for the TSportline black color/finish. My TSV wheels/caps aren't black, they're TSportline's "satin gray"...

    TSportline TSV Wheels: Airbrushing some replacement center caps in color-matched Satin Gray

    Closing the loop on this one. It took about 2 weeks for the Uberturbines to sell once I put them on Craigslist, and I renewed the listing once to bump it to the top of the search results. I accepted $2500 (local pickup / cash) for the wheels/tires/tpms. I *sugar* you not, the guy had only just...

    22 MYP Tires/wheels options

    I also live in Colorado and sold the Uberturbines that came on my '22 MYP. I put TSportline 19" x 8.5" TSVs on it, wrapped in 255/45 R19 Michelin CrossClimate2 tires. I absolutely LOVE them and would never go back to the Uberturbines! The comfort and noise improvements were worth the hassle and...

    Unfitted without caps: The caps do look good!! I am very, very happy with how the wheels/tires look on the blue MYP!

    Matte carbon fiber dash/door trim replacement comparisons

    I don't think it would work because the clear coat on the veneer would prevent the stain from taking hold. You'd have to sand off all the clear coat first, which is a difficult job to do correctly on thin veneer because you risk sanding through the wood. After that you'd be able to apply stain...

    TSportline TSV Wheels: Airbrushing some replacement center caps in color-matched Satin Gray

    Here's some more shots of the wheels/tires (with TSportline's TPMS modules, which are apparently 100% compatible with Tesla's). I LOVE the tread pattern on the CrossClimate2s: Here's a couple of shots of rim clearance with 8.5" wide wheels and 255/45 R19 rubber: There's roughly 10mm...

    And this is why beauty is in the eye of the beholder! You love it and that's great. I don't like the imitation CF trim at all, and that's great too. And still others think we're both crazy and that the OEM wood is best. ...and obviously blue Teslas are better than red ones ;)

    TSportline TSV Wheels: Airbrushing some replacement center caps in color-matched Satin Gray

    Background My MYP is due for delivery on Saturday September 10th. The first thing I'm doing to it is removing the 21" Uberturbines and replacing them with 19" TSportline TSVs in Satin Gray. This is for a couple of reasons: comfier better ride quality, improved efficiency, and better selection of...

    Quality of weave is about the same, however I think the way it's been laid on the substrate is not as good and shows more imperfections than the Fusion. The AliExpress dash is the LHD matte one from this page: 338.4US $ 50% OFF|For Tesla Model 3/y Real Carbon Fiber Dash Dashboard Replacement...

    Matte carbon fiber dash/door trim replacement comparisons

    I returned the Fusion Motorsports dash/door trim set because I wasn't satisfied that it was worth it for me when I figured in the price differential between it and, I regret to say, an AliExpress set. Both are full replacements; both are genuine carbon fiber; both have matte finish; both come in...

    Gentlemen, this has descended into ad-hominem attacks over civil discussion. We can all enjoy our cars in our own ways without being right, wrong, smart, dumb, or phallically-challenged.

    Matte carbon fiber dash/door trim replacement comparisons

    Interesting about the wheels making the ride worse. Did you go up in size to thinner rubber? I'm going the opposite route: removing the MYP's 21" Uberturbines and installing 19" TSVs with 255/45/19 Michelin CrossClimate2. I opted for the M3 version of the wheel instead of the MYP version of the...

    I have faith in humanity most of the time, so yes. Yes I did. And the response I received didn’t come across as sketchy or avoidant. It was detailed and categorical. So either Alex is a pathological and convincing liar or he’s on the level. Based on everything I’ve seen so far, I choose to...

    Matte carbon fiber dash/door trim replacement comparisons

    You raised a very interesting point, so I reached out to Fusion and asked this question: This is the response I got: "We do not engage in sourcing from overseas." So, not just made in USA, but made in USA from genuine Tesla parts with handmade real carbon fiber trim. That's pretty cool.

    Interesting! It’s a HANSSHOW Chinese carbon fiber dash and door trim replacement. Like-for-like with the RPM/Fusion products, the HANSSHOW comes to $746USD shipped. It’s made in and delivered from China. Import duty is negligible. That’s $380-ish cheaper than the Fusion. I am fortunate enough...

    Matte carbon fiber dash/door trim replacement comparisons

    Yup. I checked with both RPMTesla and Fusion Motorsports and they both assured me that their dash + door combo packages are compatible with the new Y doors. I assume they’re the same as the M3 doors. The price increase for the Fusion package goes from $849 to $1,129.99 (after the mail-in...

    Ah, it makes sense when you apply context! You’re right - I was wrong. The wood is indeed real wood veneer with a clear coat on top. It’s still fugly!

    Matte carbon fiber dash/door trim replacement comparisons

    Yeah, I have a history littered with Audis and BMWs, so I was initially concerned with the interior trim. To address my concerns I rented a ‘22 MYP on Turo and was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t as bad as I feared based on things I’d read on Reddit and TMC. In fact I liked the minimalist...

    Matte carbon fiber dash/door trim replacement comparisons

    It's either real carbon fiber or it's not. Vinyl isn't carbon fiber. Hydro dip isn't carbon fiber. Perhaps my choice of the word fake carries implications of dishonesty or deception; for argument's sake I'll agree with you and opt for imitation instead. The thing - the je ne c'est quoi - that...

    Matte carbon fiber dash/door trim replacement comparisons

    Nice car! What you've shown here is in my opinion the flat 2D version. It looks just dandy in your photo, but in the driver's seat for me it will be lacking the je ne c'est quoi that real carbon fiber offers. I'll talk about why in my reply to the person below!

    Agreed. The flush fit of the trim gets lost with a cover, too.

    Matte carbon fiber dash/door trim replacement comparisons

    Fair enough. I don't yet know if it's worth it for me - I don't have the dash in hand and fitted to a car. If it's not worth it then I can return it to Fusion and get on with my life. It costs me nothing but time to try. This is where I think we fundamentally disagree on a subjective topic. I...

    If you genuinely don't care about - or can't tell the difference between - this hydro CF: and this real CF: then you can safely ignore the rest of this thread :) For those of us who can tell the difference and for whom it is of importance, let the discussion continue!

    The EDD for my blue MYP is Sep 1 - Sep 29, so I'm getting a few mods lined up in advance. One of the first things I want to do is get rid of the horrible brown cheap-looking fake wood trim on the dash and doors. I think the Tesla interior design team must have been smoking crack when they came...

    FSD Beta 10.13

    Agreed! I’m grateful to be able to drop $12k on a frivolity, but completely understand how $12k could be absolutely out of reach for people, or even if within reach I can see how it just wouldn’t be worth it. Or to be more tongue-in-cheek, as I say to my kids: “it’s ok to be wrong as long as...

    FSD Beta 10.13

    I'm new to Teslas and new to this forum. Seems like there's a lot of trolling and misunderstanding of people's motivations for buying FSD. So here's my perspective, for what it's worth. I have a MYP on order (EDD Sept 13 - Oct 18 2022) and I am delighted to pony up the $12k for FSD. Yes, I...
