This Matte Black Tesla Model 3 belongs to Zack, one of the most vocal supporters of performance upgrades & modding in the Tesla community, resulting in one of the best looking builds out there

It is our great pleasure to showcase yet another customer build on our website. Owned by Zack, one of the most vocal supporters of performance modding a Tesla, then driving it like it’s a matter of life or death both on and off the track, this Matte Black Tesla Model 3 Performance is brimming with Unplugged Performance parts. After all, if you want the best performance out of your Tesla, both on and off the track, only the best performance upgrades are needed.

The build started off with some visual upgrades. First, an Ascension rear bumper in carbon fiber w/ carbon fins was installed, giving the front end of this electric vehicle a more refined and aggressive look. After this was done, the Unplugged Performance high-efficiency rear carbon fiber spoiler for the Model 3 was installed, offering improved aero efficiency, thanks to advanced aero simulation and CAD technology, allowing us to engineer a spoiler that not only looks great, but is also simple to install without any drilling, doesn’t impede the rear visibility, but also, reduces overall drag and results in improved overall mileage.

Next in line were aftermarket performance suspension upgrades. Our Model 3 comfort coilovers and Front Upper Control Arms (F.U.C.A) were first to be added, followed by our sway bars (front and rear) w/ adjustable end links, ensuring that Zack can hit those tight curves on and off the track with both confidence and speed, but also, in a comfortable way that doesn’t impede any daily driving capabilities of this vehicle. Additional suspension upgrades come in the form of front lower control arm bushings, ensuring Smooth, solid, responsive, and predictable handling, a great upgrade for just $325.00 for our Model 3 customers.

Finally, the suspension. upgrades saw the Rear Camber Arms and Rear toe arms installed. While often the last item on the list for many, these actually provide a great gain in overall handling performance. We’ve gathered feedback on the arms’ on-track performance from our development driver, Randy Pobst, as well as real-world use data, collected from multiple test vehicles (which have been daily driven for more than a year with these parts) to ensure they satisfied our design goals. In turn, this allowed us to create a product that’s lighter and stronger than ever, releasing a product that provides easy-to-see results on your car.

In the brake department, Zack went with one of our high-selling products; the UP x PFC Iron Big Brake Kit (BBK) for the Tesla Model 3. It’s a great upgrade and a seemingly great compromise between a full carbon ceramic big brake kit (BBK) and the overall braking performance you receive with this kit. In turn, this is probably the best value-for-money BBK you can get for the Model 3, providing improved braking performance both on and off the track, all without breaking the bank. The kit is complemented with Unplugged Performance Model 3 street pads w/ street brake lines, ensuring brake fade is less of a problem on short, twisty roads and race courses Zack will encounter across the country. After all, he put over 147,000 miles on his Model 3 already, a feat all by itself for sure.

The interior is further enhanced thanks to the Unplugged Performance Ascension-R bucket seat, giving the driver a more controlling environment to tackle those tight curves, but also lowering the overall weight of this vehicle.

To complete the exterior modifications, Zack went with a set of UP-03 monoblock forged wheels for his Model 3, lowering the unsprung weight and providing a great upgrade to this vehicle’s wheel setup. Sized 19×9.5 in the front and 19×9.5 in the rear, the UP-03s are a great choice for performance-wary owners.

Simply put, these are some of the lightest wheels available for Tesla applications right now. They were developed through massive amounts of R&D, and real-world testing both on and off the racetrack, fueled by our never-ending pursuit of efficiency through weight savings. As a result, these wheels will not only allow you to stand out from the crowd but also, help you achieve improved performance with your Model 3 in various performance driving situations. The gorgeous Satin Black finish certainly helps with that.

What our customers say
I really like how understated this lip is. It blends in perfectly with the existing bumper but you can still tell there is something unique about your car when it's installed. I have a grey model 3 and purchased the painted one. Although the site says it's not the exact same as the factory color, I...
Dominic Marcu - Racing Driver perfect! with their help I can have the desired setup for the competition car.
I installed these because with my previous set of UP lowering springs I really had uneven tire wear and it costed me a lot of tires. Installation was easy and the products look high quality. Let's see how the rubbers hold up. For now I used the same length as the original arms but made an...
Been waiting for this part from UP since purchasing my coilovers almost 2 years ago. This part is completely much more superior than the OEM part and steering feel is much more accurate and responsive.
Purchased the sway bar for my plaid about a year ago after hearing good things about it on the Tesla forum. Unfortunately, I got super busy and I didn’t get a chance to install it until recently. Very happy with the purchase and there’s a very noticeable improvement in handling. The car also...
Just installed the UP super performance lowering springs and they completely changed my car, the handling improvement is incredible, feels like it's on rails.
My wife drives a Model Y as her daily driver and for a commuter car the model Y suspension can be very harsh with a lot of body roll. Purchased the luxury coilovers and sway bars to help with this. Only 1 mechanic in North Carolina was certified to do it that was in the unplugged performance...
After lowering my Model 3 on coilovers I was having all kinds of clunking noises come from the front sway bars links. Initially, I purchased a different brand of adjustable links and they clunked no matter what I did (shortening, lengthening, removal and re-torqued them countless times), so I...

The Side Skirt Set really improved the look and feel of the TM3. It ties in the front fascia unit and the rear spoiler looks fantastic as well. It makes for a lower look and a sleek ride. I'm very impressed at the pictures and I have been given compliments on its finish. The paint matched the...
I recently purchased the UP-03 Race Spec Wheels for my Tesla Model 3 from Unplugged Performance. Although the wheels look great and undoubtedly enhance the driving experience, I encountered a few issues during the process. Firstly, I was not informed that I would need spacers for the UP validated...
Sway bars changed behavior of car. It was straight forward to install. Thanks to the Unplugged team for providing guidance on the correct way to setup sway bar with the adjustable end links. Very happy with product!
Dominic Marcu - Racing Driver Just perfect for my car
I really like the new moderate lowering spring for my Model Y performance. The set lowered the car by roughly 1 inch (2.5cm) I have the feeling that the car provides a smoother ride than stock. You feel it when driving over small bumps. The car is still stiff but I like it better that stock and...

I opted to get the race spec coilovers since I track the car. I’m very pleased with the performance of the coilovers. Not to mention the ride height is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks to the Unplugged team for their willingness to assist and answer my questions. They are very...
I upgraded bushing to address an issue I had with lower control arm. Instead of buying OEM, decided to upgrade to spherical bushing from Unplugged. Definitely worth the upgrade. I recommend upgrade.
Dominic Marcu - Racing Driver the car is heavy. With these elements we get rid of quite a lot of weight. They look good, and they are of the highest quality!
Installed front big brake kit and noticed extreme improvement over stock model x plaid brakes. Later installed the rear carbon ceramic rotors and pads and noticed an appreciable increase in braking power and am now quite comfortable braking from speeds in the 160mph range and that was not the case...
