yes
To me it shows how great original Tesla is as whatever they do to "improve" its looks becomes just cheap.

The leather looks horrid and then the blue stitching makes this even worse.

Not very impressed with changing colors and putting on lips and spoilers that increase the cW.

I am surprised that none of the big tuning firms have tuned the car, as in tuned for more power. For example the 1500 A fuse of the ludicrous should have been a perfect mod from a tuning firm before Tesla came out with it. (probably with jail breaking, rewriting sw and no warranty, but still)

The abuses heaped on this car by the aftermarket world are not to be beleived. IMHO, and just my opinion, this is one of a long and growing list. The brown leather might be interesting if it were an accent but this is overwhelming. Too much of even a good thing can turn bad.

That's the problem with having a car that's so well-engineered; any changes made to it by tuning houses like Brabus and Saleen only make it worse than it was.


I actually don't mind that at all...but it doesn't belong on a Model S. It would be more appropriate on a BRZ/FRS or even a Hellcat.
