I’m in a situation where Tesla needs to replace the dash pad on a late-year 2017 MS equipped with the Vegan dash pad. The Vegan pad is on BKO, so they offered to replace with an available Alcantra/leather pad. Anyone have any suggestions as to what pad is better from a performance perspective (propensity to warp, crack, dent, make noise, etc). I understand natural materials require more maintenance, but if anyone has any pros/cons that could help with the choice it would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for the feedback. Yes the Alcantra is a synthetic material but was told the other part of the dash pad was leather. Not sure if this is right, so the Service MGR is checking to confirm. I suppose the dash pad that has the Alcantra trim and the rest ? has not been an issue based on the replies, so I guess it’s a decision of personal preference at this point.
