I have to emit that I have looked in the windows of many Tesla Model S while waiting for my own. The main reason is that I have selected textile seats and I have not yet seen a Model S with this seat configuration.
But what I have noticed is that many of the Model S seats has been stretched and the leather is no longer tight. To me it looks ugly and the first cars in Norway begun delivery for just a few months ago.
Too compare this issue I have glanced in other older cars like BMW and Audi and it seems to me that the design of BMW and Audi is made such as the leather never get stretched, it just compress. While in Tesla it seem to me that the leather is under more stress.
Does the skin seats stretch?
(I have selected textile because textile has better temperature properties and because they are less slippery in high speed turns)
