Has anyone come across a way to source the material model 3 seats are made of ? Our pup goes everywhere with us but even the best behaved of pups will wear those white seats over the long run. I thought I saw a shot of Trevor’s P3D w a cover on the arm rest ?

On a related note , has anyone heard of someone reupholstering seats (my first trip out with the car was with blue jeans and I’ve tried everything) ? Someone at service tells be it’s a couple thousand for a new seat - that’s just nuts though .

Chris from Electrified Garage recommended Katzkin. Approx $2k to replace a seat through Tesla Service; better deal than that to get seat upholstry made and installed.

try baby wipes to clean your seat. took the white sunscreen marks of my black interior like a charm, and the baby wipes were from an open package of Kirkland brand at least 3 or 4 years old. had to dig down to get one with a bit of "moist" left on it, but when I did it cleaned the seats like a charm.

there are a few threads specifically on how to keep the ultra white interior clean (or more specifically, how to clean it when it gets dirty)

The fabric supplier for Tesla's vegan leather is Ultrafabrics.
