    Hi Everyone,

    Just wanted to get some thoughts on the white leather seats. Anyone going to get them if they are an option for the Model 3? I am liking them very much, but am a little concerned/worried about them getting dirty rather easily even though Tesla states that it is pretty stain resistant.

    Thanks

    For starters the white seats on the S and X are not leather. Which is probably a good thing as it makes them more durable.

    I believe the consensus in the X forum is that they have thus far been surprisingly durable and easy to clean. If that holds true, I plan on getting them in my 3 if available.

    Awesome ultra white seats 12,000km since July 2016 still look new and always a WOW from onlookers. Cleans very easily. No second thoughts here.

    Sorry to hijack, but you got me thinking. I am planning on matte black for the exterior (hopefully no chrome), so the interior will have to be black. Virtually everyone on the forum says good things about the material the ultra white seats on the X are made of. Now I'm picturing that material in a matte black for the interior.

    Maybe throw in the HUD some folks think will be available. Add in PDL to give it stealth fighter acceleration to go with the look and I will have the perfect remedy for the mid-life crisis I have scheduled for the end of the year and the car will still cost less than our first house by about $12.00.

    Hmm, I wonder if I can get some of the non RADAR reflective paint they use on the planes?;)

    I would prefer vegan, stain resistant seating. If that comes only in white, I'll get white. If it comes in gray, black, tan, or other colors, I'll have to think about which I prefer.

    Regardless, I plan on treating my seats/interior to further prevent stains.

    Hookbill, thanks for the link! I think I will go with the ultra white seats! Black exterior and white seat to contrast the exterior.

    That's what I have and I have to agree with the awesomeness, especially for a Canadian car. ;)

    I have mostly used the car for ski trips since I got it Dec. 13th, in pretty intense winter weather. I have been slightly careful, but not much, and they still look pristine after almost a month. They are hydrophobic, so water beads up and wipes or rolls right off. Love them!

    My friend has a blacked out X with the ultra white interior and it looks amazing. I hope they offer it on the 3 and will almost certainly choose it, regardless of exterior color.

    I like the blue/white for some reason.

    I never would have ever looked at white seat options, but the comments I've seen here are making me consider it. I have three youngsters who can be brutal to the inside of a car, so if they are as durable as people are saying, it might be a good fit since the wife hates black seats.

    Couldn't agree more. Blue exterior/White seats + black wheels to finish it off.
