All,

I just requested WeatherTech notify me when Model 3 floor liners are available.

Maybe if enough of us getting our "3"s soon can do the same, we'll have them in time for when we take delivery.

And, maybe you're a Husky Liners fan, but they don't have any liners (currently) for any Tesla model. We can always ask them to get Model 3 liners ready too!

I've never swapped out the stock floor mats. Is there a lot of value in doing so?

Probably do what I did with my Integra and buy some cheap floor mats to put on top of the factory ones. 20+ years later and the factory ones still only show the few stains that the previous owner (first ~3 years of 23) left me.

I try to kick snow off before getting in and I rarely get in with mud. Probably had the cheapos cleaned a total of 10 times (part of the upsell at local "touchless" where I doubt I'll take my Model 3 (maybe a detail job once a year?). I definitely like protecting my factory mats but like the cloth rather than plastic/rubber.

What's the benefit of weathertech/husky over something from a big box store? Perfect fit?

I just wish WeatherTech didn't do 8-page full color ads in Car and Driver every month and put those savings towards cheaper (priced) mats instead. Their advertising budget must be crazy and car mags must love it. In a recent issue of C&D, one of the editorial staff mentioned they (C&D) were adding on to their building. They'll no doubt be calling it the "WeatherTech Wing".

I love WeatherTech mats. I've run them in a ton of my cars. The fitment is great and they really protect the carpets.

I guess this is what I just don't get...

I'm putting ugly mats in to protect the OEM mats that I'll never see anyway because they're covered...

Well, the WeatherTech mats do look nice. Use them in winter to capture slush & snow. So... yeah... @SoFlaModel3 has no use for them. :p

I tear up my drivers mat in my cars. WeatherTech would help with this but the deciding factor for me was kids. I have to have something to protect the car mats/carpet (like WeatherTech). Otherwise I wouldn't let my kids ride in my M3 :)

I bet you don't cross-country ski much.

That's correct. Snow has touched the ground in South Florida once in the last 35 years and melted on contact :)

I too am a big fan of the WeatherTech floorliner mats. I used to pay MORE for MINI/BMW mats and they would wear and fail. Then a few years ago, BMW switched their mats over to weathertechs (of course you pay a bit more for an added BMW logo). Proof in the pudding.

Thanks for the suggestion, @littlD I will be bugging them to get going on these matts too! Especially if it appears I will be getting delivery in the heart of the snow season.

The big difference with WeatherTech is that the edges of the mat come up a ways preventing anything from getting underneath.

If you look at the Tesla store floor liners for MS they are Identical to the Weathertech ones from the website. Only difference is the Tesla logo. With Weathertech already making them for the MS I think its a no brainer they will make them for the 3.
I just powerwashed my current ones and used the Weathertech floor liner and floor mat protector. Look new again and not slippery.

Good point, those are definitely weathertech floorliners. Amazingly, Tesla is actually charging $5 less! So hopefully they will have them for the 3 very soon as well.

They are (to a point). I have used the weathertech products for about 10 years. I do modify the unit that goes in the driver's footwell because the 3 dimensional mat does not extend high enough under the brake and gas peddles (liability reasons I was told).

I add rubber material such that the mat becomes extended up the firewall under the peddles so any moisture drops into the mat, not between the mat and the carpet.

My 10 year old Prius has seen 9 winters with this technique and the factory carpet is clean, dry and pristine underneath. YMMV.

Wow, as a Tesla owner newbie, I didn't realize that Tesla's branded mats are Weather tech.

I might also be interested in a rear seat protector from them as well. I have two dogs that I ideally don't want in the car at all, but will probably end up in there at some point and I'll need the protector. Doesn't look good for it though as they don't make one for the Model S currently.

Yep, months ago. Made by Weather tech with Tesla badging, the normal high quality of WeatherTech
