    I really love the look of the black covers with red trim. But I'm concerned the material will look subpar. Any thoughts, or better yet, real life pics?

    Well, I said, "eff it." Just dropped $2700 at evannex. Seat covers, center console, floor mats, wheel protectors, brake calipers, and sound system. If the quality of the seat covers appears solid, I'll take pics after install. Of course, I don't even have my car yet...

    FWIW page 18 of the Model S manual reads:

    Seat Covers

    Do not use seat covers on Model S. Doing so
    could restrict deployment of the side air bags
    if an accident occurs. It can also reduce the
    accuracy of the occupant detection system.

    Those seat covers cheapen the interior, they look like foam (I just looked at the pics, did not read up on them). Ugly!!

    I got my covers from Wet Okole - work great and have cutouts for the air bags - my tan seats where getting stained and showing a lot of wear, plus the are perfect for my Golden Retriever in the back seat

    as well as the Evannex web site and our own for sale section where a member is selling a set for the
    next gen seats.....pictures are everywhere

    Im going Wet Okole

    I have been trying to get a retro fit for my CPO car that was promised to have memory seats , seat heaters, seat profiles and lumbar
    But my car is a tweener, and did not have these options when Textile first came about with the tech package. Still a sore spot.
    Enter Wet Okole. I will get as options to the covers,lumbar and carbon fiber seat heaters.
    I wanted to use the Evanex option but they do not offer seat heaters and lumbar,something I need and dont have...

    Also wondering what the interaction would be with seat heaters? Assuming they're thermostatically controlled, does the heat cut-off sooner because they detect "warm enough" when in fact the heat hasn't reached your butt yet but is held in the foam?

    Also, wondering if the front seat edge pockets are obscured or rendered inaccessible by Wet Okole?

    @AMPUP Yes, these are complete interior replacements. There’s a fairly wide price range. It’s contingent upon material choice and in the case of full interior, the number of panels to

    be changed. The first image is an interior made with Japanese alcantara, Rolls Royce carpeting and Carbon fiber. The second is Ferrari leather and carbon fiber. We are able to

    create interiors with your choice of materials so please contact us directly if you’re interested and we’d be more than happy to go over possible options and pricing.

    I have the black with red trim, material is great. It is wet suit material. I just upgraded to 2nd Gen seats, took off the covers on my 3 year old seats and they look brand new.
    Now for the red trim, I thought it was too loud and so did others I asked. Wet Okole makes these and you can order them direct from them. You can configure your colors to what you like. I ordered black on black. Go to their website and have a look.
