    Hi, I have plans to make a center console with some active features for close/open compartments, rising/lowering phone holders or cup holders and maybe some LED's if I can find a way to do it without making it to look to "flashy" or "bling". My thoughts are to use a Arduino as control.
    I don't have the car yet so I have a couple of questions and I would be very happy if someone knows the answer to them.

    1 - What are the dimensions of the floor and how high are the sides?
    2 - Is it possible to get a CAD model (Solid Works) of the premium center console that Tesla sells?
    3 - Anyone has a idea how to control the Arduino from the Tesla screen (maybe using a webapp)?
    4 - Is it stupid to try to match the color (black for me) or should I use another color just to not get close but not al the way?
    5 - What features would you like in the center console?

    Thanks and merry christmas to you all!!!

    Hi Pontus,

    can you show us some of your design ideas? I was thinking of designing and building a rear seat center console with built in storage for an ipad for films etc. the idea is to make the back more like a panamera or cls ie: luxurious 4 seater. right now I have the evannex center console in the front but would love to get my hands on the tesla one since I think it is purer design wise..... but getting it seems almost impossible at least in europe.....

    I'll try to get you the measures you are looking for tomorrow.
