    Not sure if you can do this

    But like the look of the pedals on the p85 can the regular 85 be upgraded to this?

    Thanks

    Technically, yes, they can be upgraded, however from what I've heard, Tesla won't sell you the pedals anymore. Back 2 years ago, I bought them from Tesla directly and installed them on my non-performance 85.

    I heard Tesla will only sell them to P owners.

    Yep - I checked again this week and the SC wants the VIN to make the sale. These pedals look great and I'd love to install on my 85. Hopefully some aftermarket accessory house will sell a high quality option. I have seen a very nice dead pedal available available from formytesla.com can't find anything at all for the stop and go pedals. If anyone has a source, please post!

    I have a P85 but wanted something different, so I ended up make a set myself. They are CNC machined out of solid 6061 billet aluminum and polished out. I'm making a couple more sets right now to test out different finishes. Overall they really make a big difference just opening the door. They also offer a ton of grip, and will fit any Model S.

    Sorry for the poor picture quality, I just snapped this shot with my phone and it's dark out. I'll try to get some better pictures tomorrow.

    Maybe you can have a P owner order them for you?

    I'm curious, I have a late 2014 P85+ with the metal pedals, but the dead pedal is just black plastic, isn't it supposed to be metal too? did they change that at some point?

    That's black but there is an aftermarket solution that I have from Footrest Dead Pedal

    It's extremely good quality

    Hi. I just bought the tesla preformance pedals. I bought it from USA and in the ad is says it is OEM Tesla. How do you tell the difference between OEM and pedals from China?
