    I love the cushioning and how comfortable the model 3 seats are; Curious if anyone has thought or has reupholstered their roadster seats with the inside of a model 3 cushioning.

    Would anyone attempt this? would this bring down the value or be stupid doing this to the original seats of the Roadster? I am thinking about simply having the padding taking out and replacing with the model 3 cushioning.

    Thoughts?

    Umm, my first drive was 3500 km and I found them super comfy as they are. Granted I only slept in them for 6 nights but I have never thought them uncomfortable.
    Model 3 seats however I really don’t like. Much prefer the next gen model S seats, to each their own.

    Would that even fit? Might have to trim it and then it could be pretty comparable?

    seems like it would be pretty tight fit but should work. I'm sure a leather upholster can easily make it fit.
