    Ah, I guess I never thought of steam cleaning. Maybe I will consider tan after all. Would have to see in a car to decide and also see what tesla offers. Mini has some nice tan and black stripes mats that we have.

    My understanding was that the cars are shipping with temporary front mats, but that full front and back mats are coming.

    It has been stated in other treads that Tesla is supplying fronts only with the car. They plan to offer full sets of more finished mats later for an additional fee.

    I was just curious.

    I have contacted a few embroidery places in Chicago to see if they have the capacity to do this. None of them specifically advertise automobile mats, but they accept digital artwork and appear to embroider just about anything that a needle can penetrate. These Lloyd mats look thick, so we'll see.

    Those are nice. They seem like they would repel water easily as well.

    I called them today to see if I could stop by the factory. They said all of the sales guys are at the SEMA show in Vegas until next Monday. I'll try to stop by next week.

    Yes they are... but I'm sure at a much higher price than Lloyds will offer.

    The Lloyd's mats, like any good car mat, have a sturdy plastic backing. Any embroidering would have to be done before the carpet is attached to the backing, during the production process.

    That is my understanding, also.

    Ok so it sounds like maybe the optional mats tesla is going to provide are rubber only. Maybe Lloyd's are the best bet.

    "A: As of right now from where I sit, the only floor mat option I know we are working on is an all weather option, which would be separate purchase. I unfortunately though have no ETA for this offering from us.

    This may be related to the reports about more durable floor mats. I cannot confirm whether this will include mats for the frunk or rear cargo area. As of right now, all Model S are shipped with floor mats for the front driver and passenger foot wells."

    Just called Sammy at Lloyd Matts today and have an appointment tomorrow morning at 10am at their factory in Northridge to look at the colors (and see why other's have said that the black doesn't match). I'll report back with my findings.
