Floor Mats Stink

Floor Mats Stink

I must say that I love my Model S and have really had no issues. The minor ones I have my ranger has a plan and the fix is on its way......but.....I must say, I spent 92,000 on a car and the floor mats that the car comes with are crap. On top of the crap floor mats, they don't even give you floor mats for the back seat. Tesla, come on.....I think I could have my 11 year old daughter make me a better set of mats than what come with the car. What gives...92k and CRAP floor mats??? | 26 janvier 2013

For Lloyds, seems like most are going with Ultimat, which is what I plan to get. The others are good too - different price points and quality. The multi-color Berber looks best if you want to hide dirt. When you order and select Tesla, Model-S, it will default to "Black" which other users say is a good match.

I also want grey to match my seats, so I'm waiting for some color samples to arrive before picking which one. Lloydds has about 8 different grey colors, of which 4 look somewhat close. I'll post an update when I pick one (and/or get the mats and see how good the match is).

Someone reported that Ultimat Parchment is the closest match to the Tan interior.

Anyone found any other good colour matches?

Well, haven't taken delivery yet but expecting to hear from them in the next couple of days (window 1/26/13-2/9/13).

Anyway I order the Lloyd's Ultimate Mats for interior (2-front & 1 rear seat) and the trunk mat for $221.05 (15% discount code welcome15 and CA. sales tax with free shipping). Went to Tesla and ordered Frunk liner and cargo net for $174.50 ($$120 for the liner & net plus $32 FedEx ground shipping ((outrageous)) and balance CA. sales tax).

When I ordered the floor mats from Anything Auto I spoke to them about the Ultimate 32oz vs. Luxe 48oz carpet mats. Sales rep suggested the Ultimate for everyday use and they are less expensive than the Luxe. So that's what I did. Read a couple of Model S owner reviews on their site with positive reviews.

I do think that nice quality floor mats (at least the interior passenger area) should come with the car. But what's another $400 (that's a lot of money for many of us) in the scheme of things when it cost $600/year for service.

Yikes! You might die from improply place floor mats!

Safety warnings are funny sometimes.

So can anyone who has the premium Tesla mats comment on them relative to other options?

I called weather tech and they said they are working on mats that will be sold at the Tesla store. Weather tech is the best on the market now.

Robert22 | 30 janvier 2013

They may be selling them through the Tesla store, but they will also be selling them direct and likely without the 400% markup (direct selling confirmed by Weathertech).

Appreciate all the great info, tips, and opinions expressed in this thread!

tommy-tesla | 30 janvier 2013

Agreed, this on at least three other similar threads.

Based on what I learned from these I decided not to get the Tesla brand mats, and instead ordered the Lloyd Ultimat from anythingautocom. However, to apply the WELCOME15 coupon I had to toss in a random item ~ $27 item to bump the total over $150 (thus effecting getting that item for free).

Getting Amped Again | 30 janvier 2013

Same here, ordered the full set of Lloyd Ultimat mats from, added a set of Lloyd front rubber mats, and got all that shipped to my door for $148 (using the WELCOME15 discount).

Thank you forum!

Got Lloyd ultimate with H graphite and red neon trim for $121 for front 2 and back seat single across. Shouls look great in the black perf. interior with red piping. Just Ask for a discount. I figure I can replace them if they aren't good. I'm not a sloppy driver, ie drive without shoes for more comfort so there is never goo on the driver's floor. | 30 janvier 2013

I ordered the Tesla far I am pleased.

Got the Lloyd ultimates yesterday, they look good. Now all I need is the car ( within 2 weeks)

Earlier comments on this topic have talked about the plastic screws which have a hook on top and are supposed to be screwed into the carpet; then the hook holds down the Tesla floor mat on the drivers side. One person wrote that a small slit is made through the under carpet, another writer said no, you screw into the under-carpet.

I can confirm that the instructions that come with the Tesla mat say to screw it into the carpet, and they say nothing about a small slit, HOWEVER, I could not get my plastic screw to stay put in the under carpet, I could not apply enough force to get it to break through the pile, so it does not succeed in holding down the floor mat. I pushed down hard, and I have a strong arm too, but the screw didn't stick.

Anyone else get this to work?

@WSE51 | MARCH 1, 2013: [...]I could not get my plastic screw to stay put in the under carpet[...] Anyone else get this to work?

Yes, it worked just fine for me. One screw was harder than the other. The carpet flexed a bit, but I used my thumb and forefinger around the hook and pressed down while turning. At worst case, I think you can use something to pierce the carpet first. I think someone drilled a small pilot hole in the carpet.

Some suggest drilling a small pilot hole, just enough for the tip to engage.

@ Alex K's instructions....

Anyone else notice the instructions for installing the rear seat premium mats? "Remove the 2nd row floor mat and install the 2nd row premium floor mat".

What "2nd row floor mat"? ;)

Brian H | 5 mars 2013

The one they were going to put in before they didn't.

Duct tape for me now as well in my $105k car. It's nice and silvery., but at least people don't have to shove their feet under a drooping mat when they get a ride!

Any solutions for storage inside?

nickjhowe | 16 avril 2013

@Glwhittaker - for a cheap storage option check out the Model S delivery checklist. For more expensive/professional versions use to search for CCI (center console insert)

I got a new set of replacement mats from Tesla when I went in for my 6,000 mile tire rotation. They are clearly an improvement over that originals and included the rear seat as well as the front.
