    Do the white seats get super dirty or look bad with kid traffic? Do they stain easy?

    Most of us do think white color is easy to get dirty and hard to clean. The Model X seat is white, it causes many tesla owners anxiety. But it is also a good chance to manufacturer the seat cover.

    Same here. These seats are amazing. We passed 3000 miles on the car today and no complaints about the white seats. Two kids 11 and 13 years old.

    It is actually starting to irk me how when most people see my car for the first time, what they bring up first is how beautiful the white seats are.

    Wow, you two are my new heroes. We've had our ultra white's now for 3 weeks and are getting more confident that it is resistant to soiling. However there is no way I could get myself (yet) to put ketchup on it. Thanks for sharing!!

    I initially ordered the car w/ black seats. After seeing a few videos online I coughed up the $500 to change it to white. The seats just pop when they're white.

    You won't be disappointed in your decision. Great choice.

    gorgeous! do the seats have ventilation holes on them? I'm not sure if they all do or not.

    It depends on whether you get the premium upgrade package or not. It looks like the PP got it.

    Now that is nice. The contrasting colors looks fantastic. Love the analogy to "stormtrooper" white.. I can absolutely see that.

    It's exactly my concern. Got a lot of warnings from my friends that the seat might turn gray in one year, and the ventilation holes in the seat will trap dirt and looks bad...

    EVANNEX sells them.


    Also, I've noticed that an easy way to see if the seats are ventilated is that they have black stitche on the sides. The non premium seats are completely white.

    I find the ventilation holes an easier way to identify if the seats are ventilated. :)

    The video below shows the white is pretty easy to clean and stays white. However, having said that, I am going with black. I would have liked a light grey or grey. I selected black due to possible glare off the white seats. Plus, white is a synthetic. I would rather have leather. I know I won't have comfort and "sticking" issues. ;)
