    The rear winter mat I bought from Tesla doesn't fit perfectly. Is this normal (bad design) or did I get a defective one?

    I have the same question! Does one need to cut the middle part that would hug the backside of the front center console? Was there a change in newer cars? What year is your car? mine is 2015 85d.

    thanks!

    You guys both have Next Gen Seats right? I think that the railings of the seats are the problems.

    I also have a 2015 85D but with gen 1.5 seating and they fit perfectly.

    I have Next Gen seats in a 90D delivered 10-5-2015, along with Tesla All-Weather Mats. I don't have the problem the OP seems to, and if I captured the same location in my photo #1 below, you'll see my mat is a perfect fit. I would suggest owners with this combination of seats and mats must spend the extra effort to (force) fit the mat underneath both sets of rails (as suggested in the instructions that came with the rear mat) -- see my photo #2 below, otherwise the mats will deform as the front seats move back and forth.

    No, I have the improved normal seats that's came standard with the 85D. I do have to insert the front of the mat underneath the front seat railings.

    Mine is inserted underneath the rail - but just barely. If I move it forward, there will be a gap at the rear part of the floor.

    I have a new 70D delivered 2 weeks ago with Next Gen seats, and just received a new set of All-Weather mats from Telsa a couple days ago. Mine also fit nicely just as BertL mentions and pictures above. Following the written instructions in the box, I pushed the front edges of the rear mat under the front seat rails - it does take a bit of effort to push the edges under.
