A gorgeous finish, carbon fiber aero parts, a carbon ceramic big brake kit, complete suspension upgrades, and a set of lightweight UP-02 forged wheels, make this Deep Blue Metallic Tesla Model S Plaid a very special daily driver that is built to work flawlessly on the occasional trackday.

When choosing a paint color for your Tesla Model S Plaid,  among the more exciting options offered by Tesla, the Deep Blue Metallic finish is absolutely stunning when polished into the mirror finish you see here at our dedicated paint restoration and protection facility, Bulletproof Auto Spa. We might be a little biased, as this particular build features that exact finish, but as you’ll see from the media gallery below, it suits the Model S Plaid perfectly. Owned by Ravi, one of our long-time customers, this Model S Plaid features a multitude of Unplugged Performance visual & performance additions.

In the front, our recently released Autobahn Carbon Fiber Front Diffuser adds that perfect visual aggression and improved aerodynamics performance to the front end of this vehicle. With the front diffuser, the goal of reducing drag and adding downforce while keeping the entire package usable on the street was a massive challenge.

In turn, we developed special removable and replaceable proprietary carbon fiber Aero Pads that allow you to run a more track-focused setup when desired or opt for maximum ground clearance for daily use or split the difference with the half-height pad. As the pads wear, they not only are easily replaceable but also protect your diffuser from wear and tear. Built from full pre-preg dry carbon fiber construction with our unique and easily replaceable Aero Pads, you can maximize performance and minimize wear and tear, as well as customize the product to your needs.

The front diffuser is joined by the front brake duct carbon fiber cooling kit, ensuring the next aftermarket performance addition is kept cool, even under adverse track conditions. The carbon ceramic front big brake kit (BBK) and the rear superlight large-sweep carbon fiber rotors and race pads installed on this Model S Plaid ensures that this beast can be tracked without worries about its braking system, resulting in greater usability and better track times due to less fade, later braking, and improved braking performance.  On the daily commute, the carbon fiber brake system provides improved efficiency and reliable and repeatable stopping from high freeway speeds.

While this car can’t be pushed anywhere near its limits on the street, on the track it comes alive, moving 5000lbs of muscle lithely through the circuit with improved acceleration, braking, cornering speeds, feel, and driver confidence.

In the rear, Ravi went with our highly-coveted UP x Koenigsegg Collaboration Carbon Fiber Long Tail Trunk Spoiler, giving the rear of this vehicle an aggressive look. However, with the part in question, it’s not all about simply making the rear end stand out. This trunk spoiler elongates the natural lines of the Model S hatch to streamline airflow over and off the back of the car to reduce turbulence over the car by moving the wake further rearward of the vehicle. In turn, it helps keep the rear of the Model S stuck to the ground providing more downforce, resulting in improved cornering performance and speed. Just what’s needed to tackle that lap or eke out that last drop of wh/mi efficiency on a road trip.

In the wheel department, this Model S Plaid is graced with a set of custom-made UP-02 lightweight forged wheels, developed & engineered specifically for this application. In turn, this ensures the best fitment possible, giving the Model S a wheel setup that both improves its looks, but also, removes unsprung weight, as these are lighter than the OEM setup found on this vehicle, stronger than the original wheels, and designed with hints of the original tubine DNA that so well suits the Model S.

For this build. the UP-02 wheels are machined in sizes of 19×9.5 in the front and 19×10.5 in the rear for a high efficiency street-tire application. They come with a Gloss Black finish. To add a sparkle of color along with lightweighting,a set of our superlight titanium lug nuts keeps the unsprung weight even further down.

Regarding suspension upgrades, this Model S Plaid features the complete UP Model S Suspension Package upgrade, which transforms the feel and geometry of the Model S. In total, this allows for improved cornering grip, stability, and control, ensuring even better track times. In turn, if you’re looking for an easy upgrade for your Plaid’s handling, this ticks all the boxes without going with a complete UP x Öhlins TTX 4-Way Pikes Peak Spec coilover setup – which we also offer. However, that is reserved for only the most demanding racers, tracking their Plaids often, and who are looking for the ultimate suspension upgrade out there.

I purchased a set of these Sway bars along with a few other upgrade components for my Model 3 (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8c-F2PEYP) The sway bars improve the ride quality, reduced body roll making the car more rigid and stable. Installation and setup was easy, being adjustable is an added bonus....
Significantly improved feel from this suspension kit. Don't forget yo get camber adjustments and springs that make this suspension upgrade feel like a whole new car!
Perfect companion product for the luxury suspension kit. An absolute must have for those who modify the springs of their vehicle.
This is by far the best front fascia out there and its makes the Model 3 look so much better! It gives it a much sportier look and I get comments on it all the time. One of the simplest upgrades that makes a huge difference as far as the look of the car goes. Couldn't be happier with how it looks....
Who likes shredded tires? Nobody! Fix the wonky camber on early Model S vehicles with this easy upgrade.
Tight on turns and soft on bumps--the mild springs seemed like the best option for folks who want to keep the vehicle as close to stock as possible while simultaneously improving the vehicle ride quality.
These are absolutely THE BEST brakes (https://www.instagram.com/p/CveWNmjvKwT/) They work flawlessly lap after lap with it's nonstop stopping power, they will last forever. Incredible value for money and Highly recommend to anyone considering using their Tesla for both track and street.
These wheels are insanely light and strong! And, they look the bomb! If I didn’t look while picking them up, I would have thought they are carbon fiber! The same spec as was originally used on the Bionic Phoenix Model 3 race car! I put in my fastest time at Buttonwillow on these wheels...
Excellent product from a great team with great customer service! The factory Model 3 Performance's suspension is rather underwhelming, so once you add the Dual Rate Linear Springs along with the Sway Bar kit and Luxury Suspension Kit it completely transforms the car! UP also stands by their...
The pictures on the website does not do justice. the wheels look extremely beautiful. Kirk was extremely helpful, and coordination was amazing. My wheels are gloss black, not able to add a picture to the review if not would do it. I went with slightly bigger wheels 20x10.5 front and 20X11 back. ...
I have a Tesla Model 3 LR but the rep at UP accidentally ordered the MY listing instead which is the same since both M3 and MY share most parts including struts. Purchased as the roads in DC just aren't very pleasant and combined with Tesla's stock struts, it's pretty horrendous. Delivery took...
Bought the shock and it works great. Definitely recommend for Model Y owners on limited budget.
This Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) It looks absolutely well manufactured, high quality and lightweight making it a must have accessory on any Tesla going to the track! Looks stunning and well designed!!
These springs were the first real mod I’d ever done to my Tesla and I’m so happy with the way they turned out. They really complete the look on my model 3. And I was surprised to find you don’t sacrifice anything in terms of ride comfort by adding them. The only problem is that now that I’ve...
The Air suspension upgrade kit works well on my refreshed Raven Model X with the upgraded Air Suspension kit. The suspension setting on Low not only improves the look but also benefits from higher efficiency with the advantage of location based auto raise function....
I recently purchased the Carbon Fiber long tail decklid spoiler for my Model X, the quality is outstanding, the finish and attention to detail of the spoiler is amazing. Looking forward to installing it on my X when it's being wrapped.
I had my Coilovers installed by NV Auto in Hamilton Canada. They did a good job and I now have a great ride. After about a month of driving I went one step further and put new 18” rims and tires on. This really improved the ride and is is a joy to drive my Tesla again. Thanks unplugged...
The Willans Safety Harness kit along with the Ascension-R Racing seat just arrived from Unplugged Performance (https://www.instagram.com/p/Cv8f-5cvDuE/) The 6-point Harness kit goes hand in hand with the design of the racing seat. It looks absolutely well made and high quality making it a must have...
