Corinthian Alcantara is the ultimate of plush...
Every time I hear "Corinthian" all I can think of is Ricardo Montalban advertising a "fancy" Chrysler. LOLOLOL
Ya I like the non alcantara. I put leather cleaner on it and it gives it a deep black shiny premium look.
We love our gray upholstery.
Impressive upgrade. . .I came out of a '99 Lexus GS 400. 210K miles and still going. First car payment since '04. . . Lol.
The kids are now driving the Lexus and they prefer it over the 2 Honda CRVs we have in rotation (5 kids driving).
Congrats on the new wheels. Will exceed your expectations.
Alcantara interior is the automotive equivalent of putting truffles and gold leaves on food.
I'm guessing you're not a spring chicken - Mr. Roarke made it sound soooo good.
@shelbri "only" 52 but Fantasy Island was my all time show from my 5 available channels of TV days . Those were the dayzzzzz
It's still available on the X, right??
Funny, I totally disagree. I didn't order the PUP because I absolutely didn't want the alcantara dash- although I really miss the power lift gate, which is now standard . I guess to each his own. Snowflake.
When PUP included alcantara dash, it was possible to special order and ask for the alcantara part of the PUP to be "deleted", resulting in a regular dash. My car has the PUP without alcantara ... a special snowflake, for sure! (I just didn't care for the look of the patchy fuzzy dashboard, nor the upkeep for dusting)
Well being 47 last Monday, my 3 available channels growing up meant I focused on Julie McCoy and stayed up late to hear "The Plane, The Plane..."
Anyway - still not a fan of Alcantara and will know in a week if I have it in my new 100D or not.
Thank you for sharing your similar upgrade! White 98 Camrys will always make me smile and glow inside as I see them on the road everyday! I have not had a car payment since 04 as well!
New Porsche Macan (replace 96 4Runner) and Model S will to change a few things at our household!
Can't wait to see what type of dash I end up with.
Let's pray your hopes won't be "dashed".
The two most common compliments I have received from people sitting in my car over the last 2.5 years has been my black alcantara headliner and the alcantara dash insert. The apparent sentiment in this thread that it's undesirable is the opposite of the sales trend in new Porsche/Mercedes/Audi/MB, cars with much better interiors than Tesla, where it's an increasingly popular choice. I would choose it for every non-high wear area of my car that currently has leather.
Alcantara removed - well I never liked it anyways (despite being a premium feature on other auto makers)
Model X 7 seater change - well the powered middle seats were not practical anyways (despite the powered mono post seats were classy / high tech)
Ventilated seats removed - well never really used it anyways (despite being another premium feature offered by other auto makers)
Shitty blind spot detection - what are you talking about? My car has self driving capability!
You get the idea. That's what a $100k car gets you. Just get a model 3 with no option. That's what they need.
Still available in Germany and Europe s far as I can tell. Any ideas why?
Nappa leather is not the same as alcantara. On the German page it is menttioned twice, that you get Nappa leather on arm rests and lower dashboard panels. Here, the discussion is about alcantara on upper dash panel.
same here...my wife and I joke about that from time to time....
Like "Nappa leather"?
