    Since Tesla no longer offer glossy seatback for Model X, I am trying to get after market options and i found 2:

    1) Tesla Model X Carbon Fiber Seatback Set

    Expensive. The installation video is not very clear. Is this just snap on or replacement? how hard or easy to do it? since 2 people doing it in the video so I don't think it is easy

    2) R-Zentric Products by Revozport

    This one is cheaper and it is just snap-on and look easy to install. But, is this durable? easily get a ding or scraches?

    If you have purchased and installed one before, please kindly share your experience. Thanks!

    Agreed, or a 3rd option.

    Remove the seat backs yourself and paint it. You can either spray it with an enamel type spray like the Duplicolor Premium Enamel in Gloss Black; or bring it to your local body shop to have them spray it. If you do the wrenching, it'll cost about $300-$500.

    I have matte one the S, gloss on the X. I prefer the x, it’s easier to clean.

    If you have matte, I’ll trade you mine.
