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.

What our customers say
Had the bars installed with the end links on my M3P, at the same time lowered with performance springs and got new tires. No regrets. The car rides flat af. I look forward to round-abouts now. Big ups to UP.
LOVE my new UP-03 wheels. Super light, super strong and they look so good. Super high quality finish on the wheels too, worth every penny. Have had the wheels for just a few days and have gotten tons of compliments on the road and at the track. These are the best wheels you can buy for your Tesla,...
The shop we had these installed was a 1.5 hour highway drive away so the trip home was a great test to see if we liked them (we live in NC). It was immediately noticeable that the ride of our 2021 Y was softer and bumps were not as hard. We had the shop set our coilovers to setting number "3" and...
If love carbon fiber like I do then this is a must. Nothing compares to UP carbon coaster. The weaves are super clean, very sturdy, looks great. I couldn’t help myself and got this to add to my carbon collection.
Excellent product! I installed mine as my first step into getting some more performance out of my M3P for Autocross. The front and rear sway bars along with some wider wheels and stickier tires really took my lap times to the next level. I would say, if you drive hard with these sway bars like I...
Received my suspension for my Y 2022 long range what a difference. Set it for 8 on the adjustment rides totally different what a great job took it to a friend of mine Frank Reyes to install Desert car medics said the product was very well made installed it in about 5 and 1/2 hours. Driving it for a...
These dual rate springs were the most noticeable and effective upgrade I've made to my Model Y. Much better handling and comfort compared to the stock standard rate springs.
I've covered innovation in the vehicle space for a long time. Mercedes Benz gave me its first ride in its first autonomous vehicle. BMW drove me around SXSW in the first i3 electric all week long. I wrote four books on technology, predicting with each decade-long trends. I have the first video on...
I wanted to wait a few weeks before leaving my review to really see if there was a significant difference and it is a significantly better ride. I commute 70 miles a day on a fairly rough socal highway and the change is noticeable. Yes, you’re still going to feel the bumps but they are not as...
Paint match was perfect. Fit is perfect. It’s exactly what I was looking for, exceeded expectations.
These brakes perform great and I should have upgraded to these a long time ago. Pedal travel with with the included brake lines are much improved as well.
Oh, wow; it is insane that one bar can dramatically alter the dynamics of the car. It is so much more planted and stable during those freeway maneuvers, which was the primary reason I bought the bar. The car is just solid at all speeds. Really solid. What is shocking is that the comfort levels seem...
Moto Miwa definitely made the right recommendation for the Moderate Lowering springs for my Model 3 Performance. They gave it the perfect balance between drop and functionality - good ride quality and no scraping. Also, in another conversation regarding tire wear, Moto suggested I purchase the...
I purchased these as set with my coil overs and these are definite must to install. These bushing add great handling to your steering. Steering is more accurate and responds well to the drivers needs. Highly recommend!
My 2019 Performance Model 3 is great, but with the heavy weight of this EV the cornering at high speeds was disappointing. I recently added these Dual Rate Lowering Springs to the UP Sway Bars, and the handling is definitely getting better! The initial spring rate makes the bumps less jarring with...
Purchased these with the luxury coilovers but kept things at stock ride height. So far, everything is great!
Shout out to Andrew at Unplugged Performance! Customer service is excellent. Great communication with everything. Knowledgeable about all products. Will do more business with UP.
These are exactly what I was expecting. I waited over a year for them. Pandemic backorders and all. It took me about 6 hours to install with help from a friend. The fronts were the worst part. You have to have the spring compressors mounted just right and really compress them a lot to assemble the...
I have my model 3 performance and love it and now after adding these coil overs, can’t comprehend why these aren’t stock for tesla. These coil overs are amazing automagically felt like the car was on a cloud, handles great, and very smooth. Noise is reduced and can not believe I took this long...
On the track or not these sway bars make your car feel solid on turns. Immediately I noticed improved corner turns which is great! Highly recommend!
