    Due to the, so far, lack of different minor options, like carbon interior trim, mainly as the wood trim is all I have see. Would many of you like to change that open pore wood trim for a different wood or carbon?

    I ask as I was previously in after market accessories and still have the desire to make changes to things. I'm just wondering if there were small things that people would like to change, on a car they don't have yet or possibly even seen in person lol.

    I will find a way to fix wind noise and road noise first, after reading reviews of the S.

    @az erik,

    Absolutely! First choice would be carbon fiber....second would be either a nicer would like Birdseye or burlwood....second a darker wood tone almost like a deep mahogany or red toned cherry. I myself just CANT get over/past this current wood piece Tesla is using at all. Sticks out like a sore thumb and really does not go well AT ALL and breaks up the interior. I'm going to aftermarket the heck out of that as soon as I get my 3. Probably CF.

    Perfectly colour matched tape so those of us without wives/gfs/friends/luggage can tape up all the panel gaps and hypermile our road trips without covering the car in black duct tape.

    Heads up display.

    Joystick and buttons for adjusting mirrors and vents. Glove box release button.

    Keyfob or App for Garmon/Suunto/etc sportswatches to unlock the damn car.

    ;)

    I'm still holding hope that we (or the service centre) will be able to pair the BLE keyfob from the X and later S cars and use that. Hope…

    Hmm. No, I think I'm good, actually.

    The white interior Model 3 appeared to have a white dash instead of the wood, and if mine comes that way it will be fine with me as well.

    We are highly considering, but cost may be an issue. We are expecting to get a Model 3 this month.

    Carbon fiber looks great, but would also like to see a darker wood option.

    I'll take piano black over carbon fibre anyday.. I hate carbon cosmetic trims, they just scream wannabe.

    Piano black would be equally good; I don't have carbon fibre in my living room nor wood in my car.

    I think you all need to ask yourselves a question here...

    Carbon fiber is definitely a cool feature, but I've gotta admit that there's something interesting about having an open pore piece of wood at my dash that isn't covered by shiny polyurethane lacquer. If I ever were to change the dash, I would do like others and find some nice burl wood or walnut. It would be even cooler if you were to finish it yourself.

    What other accessories/mods do you plan to sell during your first batch of product development?

    I wish the center console would be something other than the glossy plastic. I can just see that driving me nuts either with fingerprints or scratches.
