    Looking nice. And it seems they are higher than the normal ones.

    Are these TM ones? I just ordered the 2.5 seats for mine. I don't think they'll look like this!

    No, those are not the stock 2.5 seats. Some special "race only" ones. Not sure if Tesla even sells them. Maybe someone did them custom.

    Shame; It's already a lot of fun shocking people with the acceleration of the Tesla but imagine the extra fun of pointing them at some racing buckets with a 5-point harness; "No, you'll be fine, just get in and do make sure to pull those straps tight." :)
