    Hi All,
    What are the best aftermarket parts for a Model S? I just bought a CPO 2015 Model S 90D. This is my 2nd Model S and so I knew I needed Norm’s cubby drawer. I also bought Norm’s parcel shelf butler. I found a used OEM Tesla center console online and am buying it, I heard Taptes falls apart and I don’t care for the Evanex design. I also bought the Chademo adapter direct from Tesla. What other accessories are must haves?

    Thanks, I just bought the first two thanks to your recommendation. I’ll check out the door sills.

    I just received the cubby by norm. Rarely, do I receive a product that exceeds my expectations, but the Cubby by Norm did just that. The quality and workmanship are EXCELLENT!

    New P100D owner here. I took delivery of my shiny MC red gorgeous girl on April 3rd.

    My car has an interesting pedigree. She was born on July 20, 2018. I had assumed she was a program/demo car from Orlando, but from service records shown to me by the Tesla staff when I picked her up at the showroom, she appears to have been a SpaceX car! She only had 6250 miles on her when I got her and I got a Ludicrous deal on her! I'm over the moon about my Tesla!

    She comes with all the trimmings (except sunroof and FSD), and I swapped the ugly 21" Sonic Carbon Twin Turbine Wheels that she was wearing for the gorgeous 19" Silver Wheels that actually match her!

    I'm learning that she does annoy me in a few ways, however, and I'm happy to see that the forums here are helping solve some of those annoyances. So far, I've purchased:

    1. Ultra-Bright LED Puddle Lights (pair)
    2. Pick and Mix LED Lights - Pick and Mix LED Lights Model S - Abstract Ocean
    3. Diono Travel Pal Car Storage, Features a Deep Storage Bin for Toys and Large Items, Black
    4. TK-KLZ 4Pcs Chrome Car Tire Valve Stem Caps for Tesla
    5. 'HOOKUP' COAT HOOKS - SET OF TWO FOR TESLA MODEL S
    6. Silver Wall Connector
    7. Jumbo sized black and red sun visor from Walmart that matches my car amazingly well!

    So far the only thing to arrive (other than the wall connector which I brought home from the showroom and the Wal-mart visor) are the coat hooks, and while the quality is good, the weight limit due to the headliner is a bit light, so I'll likely buy the spendy hooks directly from Tesla as I can't seem to find a better, more integrated look anywhere else.

    I see norm has some items that are on my short list, such as:

    Cubby drawer
    Shelf Butler
    Trunk Lighting by Norm

    Is there a comprehensive list of links for all of norm's stuff?

    I am also in need or a 6-50 and 10-30 adapter for my mobile charger, and a RV Adapter L14-30P to 14-50R 250V.

    I also keep a 50' 12 AWG extension cord spool in the frunk with my other charging equipment, just in case.

    I, too, am interested in other items for my car, like an organizer for the deep well in the trunk, seat-back storage nets, etc. What other cool gadgets and gizmos are Model S owners using to accessorize their cars with things Elon should have included from the get-go?

    I'm about to take delivery of mine and am also curious what are some recommended ones. I'm not interested too much in the cosmetic stuff, but rather functional stuff. Any suggestions welcome. (I'll have car seats in the back if that makes a difference).
