    Thinking of ordering silicone fob covers and the LED license plate kit from Abstract Ocean. I assume the lights are still non-LED? Anything else I should look at ordering that's not too expensive? Getting front/back mats as well.

    Thanks!

    See how you like the neoprene fob pocket that Tesla provides first. I usually just use it even though I have the leather fob pocket, which is just sitting in a drawer. I also got the led lights but just got them from an eBay seller in Hong Kong for super cheap, and they work fine. Abstract ocean also sells a screen protector, another item just sitting in a drawer. Some folks like the center console, but you might want to try the open space a bit first. If you have an iPhone, there is a handy rigid cable mount that plugs directly into the USB port and supports the phone, charges it, and allows hands free "hey suri" use.

    The LED license plate lights are so much nicer.

    The sunscreens for the hatch and pano roof should be on your short list.

    I got the anti-glare screen cover and am happy with it. It significantly reduced fingerprints and does help with glare, though sun coming through the pano completely washes it out. I also got the leather fob pocket, which like Morristhecat, sits in a drawer. I actually don't use any cover and just don't keep anything scratchable in the same pocket as the fob. Lastly, I got the AlloyGator rim protectors, which I have yet to put on, but think are a great insurance policy against curb rash. A great and inexpensive investment. I'm thinking about the license plate lights, but what I really want is much better LED reverse lights. I also got Lloyd's Luxe Mats, which are very nice, though the fit could be better.

    Oh, and I got the Tesla plush blanket when at the factory one day. Lame, but couldn't resist!

    Have fun!

    I think you are missing a don't in that sentence!
