    I have the same. I don't care about that unless seats start getting spontaneously torn, stained or stretched.

    Seeing as the ultra white interior is synthetic material, I wonder if one could take a hair dryer and apply light heat to the area to release the wrinkles.

    I would be very careful with that approach. One bit too much heat and you have the old cigarette lighter applied to the vinyl upholstery look. Ask me how I know (this was way back in the day....). :)

    I was going to add my disclaimer to be careful with this advice and use at ones own risk. Assumed it was fairly common sense though, but then again common sense isn't necessarily all that common. :D That is why I said "light heat". I figured a hair dryer as opposed to a heat gun would not get hot enough unless one would point it super close to the surface.

    It would be interesting if someone had a sample salvaged X seat to test the properties of the 'vegan' upholstery. I don't think we know much about how it reacts to temperature, etc. Even the manual says to use water to clean it!

    The manual says to use rubbing alcohol.

    I have a Dec 31st (2016) delivery of same, and can see wrinkles only if looking with a close-up iPhone photo.

    But in context, first picture shows a normal passenger view, and if/when they complain, tell them it's VEGAN baby.

    This makes me feel less OCD about the leather seat cushion wrinkles on my few day old perforated seats. I guess there is no getting around wrinkles inside Model S interiors. Possibly the textile seats.
