    Interior Upgrade / Re-Trim

    Afternoon all. I am in the fortunate position of having bought one of the first Model S Raven Performance models in November 2019, fortunate since it was the first of the next gen but it was the last quarter they ever gave away free supercharging for life. So basically I am now stuck with this...

    Can I put Gen 4 Seats in a 2016 Model S?

    The 2016 Model S I'm about to buy currently has Gen 3 seats and I'm finding them uncomfortable around the middle of the top of my back. I sat in what I believe are the Gen 4 seats in a Raven and they felt better - I noticed they had a slightly different design around that area, so perhaps...

    MYP ‘22 aka The Vomit Comet

    We are about to make our summer vacation trip with our son in the backseat of our new MYP, 40 miles out into the trip he started throwing up in the backseat. I realize that there were a couple of issues at play: my wife was getting a headache from being in the car with its rough deceleration...

    Model S Seat Defects

    Interesting question, I purchased a used 2022 model S with 1200 miles. I was doing a deep clean of my white seats today so I can prepare for ceramic coating.

    Black vs white interior

    I have been planning to order a new Model S, however, I have been stuck between the black and white interior. Do the materials at all feel different, and is the black interior more practical long-term compared to the white, etc?

    MASTER THREAD: Removing marks from white seats

    So, I’m a little over a week into a new (to me) Model 3 Performance. I absolutely love it, and I did a lot of reading about how great and stain resistant the white interior is. So, I went with it. Late this week, I left a black baseball hat on the back seat for a few days. The car was in a...

    Model 3 Seats Causing Excessive Sweating, any breathable cover recommendations?

    Last month I purchased a new Model 3, and I've just picked it up this week. One thing I've noticed when getting out of the car (despite having AC on pretty chilly) is that my back and bum are quite moist from sweat. I did not have this issue in my previous car (a KIA Cerato with fabric/mesh...

    Driver seat track/rail extensions for tall drivers?

    I'm enjoying the performance of my 2021 Model Y, but I'm 6'5", have a 36" inseam, and weigh in the upper 200's, and am finding the fit in the driver's seat a little snug.

    BO Smell Embedded In Seat

    I am at my wits' end with a smell embedded in my car seat. A couple weeks ago I gave a friend a ride on a short road trip. He apparently suffers from terrible BO.

    Beige seats and dirt

    I am thinking about buying a new Model X by the end of the year and am leaning towards the red multi coat with the beige interior. However I am worried about the beige seats getting dirty or "jeans stained" too quickly. What are the experiences with the beige seats from other owners ?

    Driving model 3 without front passenger seat?

    Has anyone tried to drive a model 3 without a front passenger seat? I could use as much space in the car as I can get and removing the passenger seat would really help but I herd disconnecting the sensors would mess with the car and make it go into park when driving at very low speed. Is that true?

    Weak Seat Motors

    Howdy y'all! I recently did a test drive of a Model Y. Amazing vehicle, but I was surprised and disappointed to find out that the seat motors for both driver and passenger are too weak to adjust the seat without me lifting myself off of them. I am a large dude (350). I've never had this problem...

    Rear passenger unbuckled alert with seats folded down

    Whenever I have the rear seats folded down in the Y and have a light weight on it (like a box of books), I get frequent flashes on the MFD saying that the middle passenger (or sometimes a side passenger) is unbuckled. Its very annoying because even if I swipe the alert away, going over a bump...

    Rocky driver’s seat?

    Removing center console from executive rear seats

    Is this normal? Or, defect? Leathers seats wrinkle.

    I've owned the MR3 for about a month. I just noticed that the front passenger leather seat has some wrinkles in it. It doesn't get much use, especially considering the driver's seat has no such wrinkles. Is this expected? Or, yet another service appointment?
