Replacements for wooden door trims on Tesla Model 3 and Model Y


Wooden elements in car interiors often evoke a sense of luxury and warmth, but many Tesla owners are not fans of  wood accents in interiors of Tesla Model 3 and Model Y. Main argument is that wooden components look old fashioned and out of place in a car that's otherwise a marvel of modern, minimalistic design.

Fortunately, you can swap wooden door trims for more beautiful, durable replacements that are in sync with the black interior design.

Tesla Model 3 and Model Y Wood Trim Replacements

Tesla owners wanting to customize door trims have two options: a full replacement or a cover. To install a full replacement, you first need to remove existing wooden trims, so installation process is a bit more difficult than that of a simple cover. However, high-quality replacements are also more likely to stay in place and look gorgeous for years to come. High-quality replacements for Tesla Model 3 wooden door trims cost between $200 and $300.

Covers can help you keep OEM wooden door trims in good condition and even improve the interior of the car. Unfortunately, good covers are difficult to find, and bad ones will stand out and hurt your car’s interior design. There’s also a chance that the sticky tape will lose its adhesiveness and the cover will come off. 

Its natural dark color and durability makes carbon fiber the perfect material for a replacement. Beyond its practicality, carbon fiber is also easy to maintain.


Regardless of whether you are buying a cover or a full replacement for wooden door trims on Model 3, the number one priority should be to make sure it's the right size for your car. Poorly fitting replacements (and covers) will be difficult to install, expose wooden components, and might potentially damage your OEM wooden components.

Applying covers over wooden door trims is a simple and straightforward process. Replacements require a little more time to install, but they are more securely attached and more likely to stay in place for years to come.

Here's how to be safe when shopping for wooden door trim replacements for Tesla Model 3 and Model Y:

  1. Find out the generation of door trims on your car. As of right now, Tesla cars have three generations of wooden door trims (1-3).
  2. Check the compatibility with the specific model, year, and manufacturing facility of your car.
  3. Read online reviews to learn about overall quality of the product.

For example, our door trim replacements are compatible with Model 3 and Model Y cars made between 2021 and 2023, except for 2023 Model Ys built in Austin and Berlin. These use generation 3 door trims, which have a different design.

To make sure the replacement stays in place, its attachment design needs to be similar to that of the original wooden door trims. Our carbon fiber replacements are engineered to perfectly fit into the place, going as far as using exact same materials to achieve secure attachment.


Choice of material can define the quality of any component in the car. Wooden dashboards and door trims are prone to cracking in extremely cold temperatures and susceptible to scratches and showing signs of regular use. This is why many Tesla owners want to replace or cover them. Worn out wooden door trims look bad and to make things worse, might reduce resale value of your car.

Carbon fiber is by far the most popular material for a replacement. It is stronger than steel, looks great, and most importantly, easy to clean and maintain.

There are many carbon fiber replacements and covers for Tesla door trims. Our carbon fiber door trims are available in glossy or matte surface, as well as in spectre fiber, one of the lightest and strongest varieties of carbon fiber material on the market.  

Every Fusion Motors product is built with the highest quality materials used in Tesla factories, and built by hand to ensure precision and quality. Our rigorous quality control ensures that carbon fiber replacements do not lose their aesthetic quality and will continue to look beautiful for years to come.

Texture and Patterns

Replacements and covers come in different finishes, textures, and patterns. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so choosing a wooden door trim replacement comes down to your personal preference.

One thing to keep in mind is consistency. Make sure the appearance of a cover or a replacement is compatible with the rest of the interior. For example, its color or a pattern might not go well with the rest of the interior.

Based on our market research and conversations with Tesla owners, we decided to build replacements in a standard carbon fiber texture, and give customers the option to choose a matte or glossy surface.

Glossy Carbon Fiber Door Trims

If you like carbon fiber car accessories and glossy interior design, this is the wooden door trim replacement for you. It is compatible with Tesla Model 3 and Model Y cars made between 2021 and 2023*. Made of real carbon fiber, this glossy door trim is a perfect choice to elevate the interior of your car, especially if coupled with other glossy carbon fiber accessories.

Glossy accessories’ reflectiveness often causes a glare, which decreases visibility on the road. Our glossy carbon fiber replacements are engineered to evenly distribute the light across the surface to achieve a reduced glare.

*Our replacements are the right size for Tesla cars with Generation 2 wooden door trims. 2023 Model Ys manufactured in Austin and Berlin have Generation 3 door trims. We hope to soon offer Gen 3 replacements as well.

Matte Carbon Fiber Door Trims

A great choice for Tesla owners who prefer laid back, classy interior design. Matte door trims are made of high-quality carbon fiber material. These are not covers, but a proper replacement installed in place of wooden door trims. Once installed, replacement door trims perfectly blend into the black interior and elevate it with sophistication and class.

matte door trim replacements

Like its glossy counterpart, matte carbon fiber replacement is compatible with door trims on Model 3 and Model Y cars made between 2021 and 2023. Once again, certain Model Y cars manufactured in 2023 have Generation 3 wooden door trims, so they are not compatible.

Spectre Fiber Door Trims

Thanks to advances in technology, our newest product is made of spectre fiber - a premium carbon fiber variant that is lighter and even more durable than regular material. 

Its appearance is similar to glossy carbon fiber replacement. Spectre Fiber door trims also have a beautiful shiny coating to minimize glare.

Like other door trim replacements on this lost, they are also compatible only with  Generation 2 wooden door trims.


Tesla Model 3 and Model Y owners have a number of options for customizing interior of the car. In this article, we explored the possibility of replacing wooden door trims and what to consider if you decide to take this step.
