    I don't know if I just haven't noticed, and I've searched the forums about this... Every picture I've seen of a Model S interior shows metal accelerator and brake pedals and dead pedal. Mine are all black rubber. Did I miss something?

    It is either a Signature or a Performance feature. Not sure which since I have Sig Perf.

    I think Perf feature.

    Many of the folks customizing their cars to a heavy degree also bought the Perf, so maybe that's the reason many photos show the metal pedals.

    It's been discussed before.

    Generally speaking, Perf has metal pedals and non-Perf does not. I say generally speaking because I have a fuzzy recollection that some vehicles had the "wrong" pedals.

    Ah, ok. Thanks for clarifying! On their website, they show the metal pedals in the non-performance models.. I guess that's a mistake on their part...

    My non-Perf Sig has the metal pedals, too.

    Might be a Sig feature as well as a Perf feature.

    I think most of the website photos were Sig (or pre-Sig Beta) cars.

    I have the rubber pedals. 85kWh, no-perf, no-sig. Number 03182 so somewhat early.

    Rubber pedals here, took delivery April 30th. I wonder if one could order the metal pedals from the Service Center. Anyone looked into this?

    I'd be in for a set of metal pedals.

    Put the metal to the pedal, baby.

    Mine (Sig non-perf) has the metal pedals. It is a very minor thing, but I do like them.

    I checked with my SC about getting the metal pedal covers separately and they could not. Doesn't seem like they have the extra parts right now sitting around to sell as accessories separately from the car.

    My P85 has metal pedals. I think it is part of the Perf Package, for non-Sig owners.

    I would like to get metal for the left position also, but I want it to match up. The founders had metal times three.

    I was hoping for metal and rode in a standard 85 that had metal (Dec delivery)... but sounds like they will be rubber. I am sure there will be an ability to swap them at some point whether it be factory or after market.

    I picked up a pair of aluminum pedals from my service center today. They had them in stock for $250 for the pair, and I installed them myself within a few minutes.

    The part numbers are:


    ACCELERATOR PEDAL PAD - 1005916-00-A
    BRAKE PEDAL PAD - 6008130-01-A

    I need to get the part number for the aluminum dead pedal.

    Wow, anyone interested in the alum pedal covers should buy them now at that price. I'm sure Tesla will raise the price to like $1000 if it's ever in the online store, lol.

    Jello-if you manage to find the part number for that dead pedal, please share, as I would love to have that one match the other 2 pedals. Many thanks!

    Panacea, have you tried asking your service center? I got those part numbers above for the accelerator and brake from my service center. I'm sure they'd be willing to share the part number for the dead panel as well.

    Actually, I have an appointment for fog lights retrofit on Tuesday so I will ask and post if I am successful.
