Seat Covers

Seat Covers

Advice for where to find good seat covers? I have two young kids plus we do a lot of sweaty outdoorsy stuff and need to protect all seats. I saw a few that looked way overpriced, but did keep in mind where the side airbags are. Any reasonable options out there that look decent? TIA!

I had Wet Okole seat covers on my last car. Lasted for a decade. They are made of the same material as wet suits. Perfect for the beach. Easy cleaning, durable, and they look sharp.

I would be careful with front seats...airbags etc. Back seat the Okole's are nice but I've been using a beach chair cover for the front. they have a "hood' that quickly slides over the head restraint and perfect for washing/removing. just an fyi. A nice terry cloth white looks great

I was looking at those Okole covers and it doesn't seem like they are specifically for a Model 3. When going through the purchase options you have to select you seat type and most of the options are not anything that is available on a Model 3 (unless some of you have a single front bench seat with no center console). Is anyone aware of covers that are custom made for the Model 3?

EVannex has some for the m3. They look like they fit well but seem expensive. You might try Covercraft. I think until more companies make after market stuff we are stuck with those higher prices.

Look at the manual. Seat covers are strictly contraindicated, at least in front, due to the airbags.

Why put seat covers on the premium seats? The material is easy enough to clean.

@dalesmith1962 yeah, but then you can't have these:

I found a cheap option pricing around $500 from taptes From their pictures, the seat covers look pretty good just like Model 3 OEM seats

Thanks for posting those pictures. They look great!

Do you recommend?

Think about an ORANGE MUD towel that's big enough to cover a front seat (get 2 one for each front seat)
They have a zipper so acts like a hood over the headrest.
Easily removable, won't get in way of airbags. Washable.
I use it for when it rains so when I get into car seats won't get all wet.
But of course can also use for when your clothes are dirty like after bike ride or workout.

@Carl Thompson highly recommend!

I also purchase a set for my wife at less than $500. It's really a great purchase! I have updated here

@TimHyatt Looks great! I purchased white covers for just rear seats from taptes too and a front armrest cover is included, which I thought is only offered for a full set or front row covers. I'm pretty surprised by the texture and softness. It feels really soft. I'm really happy with the purchase!

@jasonalexander - did you order the NAPA or Lichi version?

jasonalexander | 2019年5月26日

@ODWms nappa. I've contacted the taptes customer service and they recommend nappa cause it looks like the OEM seats.

ODWms | 2019年5月27日

Thanks, Jason.

Thanks for posting they look stunning! Question though, why did you want them? From everything I’ve read the vegan leather is so easy to clean. I just ordered white/white and am assuming they’ll be very easy to clean! Any thoughts are much appreciated!

These work for me

I bought four of them, usually have at least two clean ones in the trunk at all times! :-) The wife gets a little offended when I make her sit on one, haha. They've worked so far for post-workouts, after going to the beach, or going for a hike. They almost completely wrap up my four year old which is great.

@jpross07 I don't like the pure black interior of my model 3. So I decided to buy a set of seat covers with two color combination. Taptes has a pretty good price. I also have a taptes wireless charger. It works great. So I believe the quality of the seat cover wouldn't be bad. And the seat covers are truely worth the price. beyond my expectation. And yes, the leather seat cover is very easy to clean. There are a lot of special cleansers for them that you can get at your local grocery store.

for those who don't want leather seat covers, taptes also offers waterproof seat covers
