    those look pretty good, nice choice.

    I went retro with a set of front seat sheepskins. In for just a few weeks, I like the comfort.

    Yeah, but.

    Your side airbags are in the seat. If you restrict them and get into a side impact accident they won’t perform as designed. So seat covers are pretty but unsafe in a Tesla.

    Supposedly, the seat covers are designed to accommodate the side air bags.

    Q: The front seats on a Tesla have airbags embedded in the sides, Will the airbags be covered?
    A: We do consider this situation, so we've specially designed for the Tesla airbag, reserve the front seat airbag deployment. But we didn't test it before, so our company assumes no responsibility for anything with airbags accident.

    How much you trust that is up to you. Wet Okole does a good job with the airbags, don't know about Taptes,

    The covers look nice at first glance but I think I would prefer to spend 10× more and get a professional upholster. Unfortunately, I won't be able to unsee that car wrap.

    I think one of the idea of seat cover is to protect it against the sun and drying it out.

    unless it's that moronic infinity ad with a young guy eating a messy burger wearing an Italian suit in the front seat of his new car. A greasy glob of food on his cheek, a smirk on his face. most repulsive thing I can think of in an ad.
