    Front passenger door trim bubbling

    I noticed material defect on my passenger door recently I put in a appointment and Tesla Mobile service seems to auto deny any interior defect claims as wear and tear. I found a thread on reddit with similar issues however they were able to get it repaired under warranty. Anyone have any...

    disappointed about tesla interior

    refreshed model s interior seems like a progressive change, but after several months of usage I think tesla is a little bit conservative. NIO‘s es7 has already equipped with amoled display, 5g connectivity and UWB, and its voice command is far more usable when compared with tesla(i cant even...

    2016.5 Model S P90DL steering wheel reupholstered in Alcantara by T Sportline

    Hey guys, So I've never exactly loved the leather on my 2016.5 Model S's steering wheel. It's always felt a little sticky/tacky to the touch, not soft & luxurious. I finally did something about it. I had the fine folks at @TSportline reupholster it in black Alcantara, with light gray stitching...

    Third party damage

    So i took my Model 3 into a local shop to get the state safety inspection done because the tesla dealership near me does not do them. The top portion of the dash when i got it back had a slit in it. I have never had an issue where a garage damaged my car before. I brought it back and they said...

    Model S Interior vs Other $100k Interiors

    After owning my 2021 Model S Long Range for just over 6 months now I have noticed a new trend in the arguments for Tesla haters. What used to be range complaints or distaste for the exterior look has been replaced with an overwhelming amount of "The interior just doesn't compare to other $100k...

    How to Remove and Open Back Seatbelt Buckles?

    Hello. I am wondering, how exactly do you remove the back seatbelt buckles on a Model Y? And if so, can you access the internals of the seatbelt buckles? I'm asking because I accidentally have had a tiny object dislocate itself into the very innards of one of the back seatbelt buckle. It's...

    Subtle drivers seat movement in Model S on braking/acceleration - Normal?

    Apologies if there is already a thread on this - I see a thread under Model X - Driver seat movement I'm seeing the same in a Model S 2020 we just picked up almost two months ago.

    Best interior color for Model X?

    Kind of torn here. What’s the best interior color for a Model X, in your opinion? I’ve always found black interiors to be classiest, and obviously they’re easy to keep clean. But apparently Tesla’s white interiors are pretty resilient and not too hard to clean, and they look bright and inviting...

    Dog damaged the interior door panel

    Hey y'all, I really need your help. I have a Model 3 ( just 6 months old). I left my dog in the car for about 30 Minutes and he damaged the interior window panel of both the driver and passenger side. Damage is so bad that I can see the foam stuffing inside it. What are my options to replace...

    Model Y Interior door handle leather wearing out

    In my 2021 model Y with black interior, the outside of my left knee has worn a spot in the interior door handle. Now when I wear light colored pants, I get black spots from the leather. Has anyone else experienced this and what remedies have you tried? Will the service center fix this? Thanks...

    Thoughts on Model X interior upgrades?

    So I really like the refreshed interior of the model X and I think it is a step in the right direction. And I’m fully aware that Tesla are a universe ahead in the software and performance game. That’s why I think it’s time for Tesla to pay more attention to the interior of its cars especially...

    Deciding on black or white interior with Black exterior paint.

    Hey first post here. I’m looking to purchase a Model Y in black, but I’m struggling to decide on the black or white interior. I’d prefer a black interior due to not having to maintain it as often as white (so I hear) and the white being “too white”, but I’m concerned with the glass roof letting...

    I‘m considering changing the sliding console lid in my 2016.5 MS to match the wood decor in my interior.

    2021 Centre Console Insert - yet?

    Hi, Has anyone found anywhere that's managed to scan the new centre console interior yet and get an updated insert into the market? The new position of the USB-C ports means 'old' ones aren't ideal. And of course I have no idea how the overall dimensions have changed too, if at all. C

    “Use 303!” - OK, which one?

    A common answer to how to clean and protect the interior of the vehicle is “Just use 303”. There are about 5 or more “303” products for cleaning the interior of vehicles. The ones for cars seem to be “speed detailer” “interior cleaner” and “protectant”. But wait! There is also “automotive...

    White interior with dogs?

    Hello everybody, I am awaiting my LR AWD white/white/19 FSD. I have been thinking about how my dog would work on the white interior over and over. Does anybody have any opinions on large dogs in white interior vs black interior? We got hiking alot and often would have dirt or mud on his feet.

    Fix for Model 3 Armrest Squeak?

    Just got my car back from the Service Center where they replaced my front USB ports, and now the armrest/center console squeaks when I open it. Rather than a ~1 hour drive back to the Service Center, I thought I would ask if anyone else has had this problem and found a DIY fix for it. Thanks!

    Does anybody else think the foot vent doesn’t work very well?

    I don’t know if it’s just me but the driver side foot vents on my car don’t warm my feet much at all. They DO blow air I can feel it rising past my steering wheel bottom. But the direction they point definitely doesn’t feel like the foot pedals where feet usually rest :( ..minor gripe of the...

    Which Interior is most efficient?

    Does black get much warmer than white in winter (thus requiring less heating)? Does white stay much cooler in the summer (less a/c)? Which do you think is most efficient year round in a place like Colorado?

    A little interior lighting mod

    Hey everyone!! a few months ago, I picked up my P85D, and like many owners here, I feel like for such a high tech, and innovative car, the interior is a little underwhelming. I know minimalism is key for the design, but a piece of me just wanted a little tiny bit of flair to give it a little...

    Cream accent colors

    Based on some threads I have read, and the pictures on the order page, I get the impression that Tesla has recently changed the "other" colors in the cabin that go with the cream seats.

    The interior panel with the armrest, button to get out, window controls is sticks out above where the trim line is on the outside.
