The Tesla S has a bioweapon defense mode.  :)  I wouldn't mind updating the filter to a HEPA at least.  Has anyone found one?

"Bio-Weapon Defense Mode

Model S now features a Medical grade HEPA air filtration system, which removes at least 99.97% of particulate exhaust pollution and effectively all allergens, bacteria and other contaminants from cabin air. The bioweapon defense mode creates positive pressure inside the cabin to protect occupants"

This doesn't answer the question. Something tells me you've never driven by Ford's Rouge River Plant and the Marathon refinery on I75 there.  You need a HEPA filter.

  The question was about HEPA filters.  Tesla and Ford aren't in competition with one another.  They are completely different cars and they are both American.  A true afficianado of technology, science and innovation would be eager to discuss both.    Success is not zero sum. It's because of my FFH that I'd be interested in a Tesla if I had 80grand lying around.  But I'd rather spend that on a sailboat.  So has anyone found a HEPA for this car?  I don't find the factory one much good. 

However, I wish EVERYONE would ditch this autonomous driving nonsense.  The last thing we need is more incompetent people.

Anyone have experience with the Denso air cabin filter http://www.rockauto....1446&cc=3300323 (which just dropped in price)

"used to trap impurities down to just .001 micron in size."

or the Fram Fresh Breeze http://www.rockauto....3532&cc=3300323 sold by rock auto?
Premium Efficiency - Filters 98% of dust, pollen, and other contaminants
 vs the motorcraft which "Removes up to 90% of dust, pollen and spore particles larger than three microns"?

This is a follow up to report my findings. I purchased the Fram Fresh Breeze from Walmart for about $20 and installed it myself.  Following the instructions and a youtube video Installation was a breeze, no hangups.  The OEM wasn't very dirty so I kept it.  However, I am unhappy with the fram.  Despite the carbon filtration it doesn't even seem as good as the OEM.  Diesel fumes filter in even when the heater is on low and there are a lot of those these days with all the dirty trucks and scofflaws out there.  Next time I'll be trying the Denso but I'll order both the Motorcraft filter and the Denso the next time to compare.  Anyone else experience better results with anything they used?  I believe the filter and housing is too narrow to properly filter out pollutants and it is designed simply to keep debris out of the HVAC system and Ford didn't put our health into consideration.  Fumes are an annoyance though and I hope someone finds a better solution.
