    As it seems I am one of the few textile seat customers, I wonder if anyone is even thinking seat covers.

    I am planning to get seat covers, so I can pick the colour, protect the seats and have all those options like sunglasses pocket, seat pockets and so on.

    Now I see they write LHD cars only.

    Anyone else - by chance - who is into seat covers for a RHD Model S?

    I'm looking for floor mats also. Rear seat floor mats should be the same. RHD front floor mats are of course different. I would suspect if we can get a good source locally we can supply the other RHD markets.

    Alternatively, there is a company in the UK that does lots of custom interiors and refurbishments. I'm sure they can make RHD floor mats, but at a much higher price than I expect we could get locally for an equivalent product.

    Just an advice for those of you trying to get seat covers from Taobao, be careful with those who claim that they are selling something tailor-made for Tesla Model S, simply because 1) they don't even have photos of their products on a Model S, 2) almost no one has purchased from them, 3) they don't have options for RHD.

    Floor mats - I'm working here in Australia to supply them to the RHD market through EVnomics

    Let me know what you're looking for and I'll do my best to accommodate. Of course - feel free to source your own from HK!! :)

    Problem is that Australia is so overpriced for everything you may struggle to match the price in other countries.

    I won't have any problems matching prices in the US - but against cheaper Chinese imports, possibly!

    If I do it in Australia, then I'll avoid the MOQ issues experienced by Job above. Anyway once I get it off the ground I'll let you guys know.
