    CARINA'S SITE
    I first found out about this product from Bjørn Nyland video which I've linked below and I immediately placed an order.

    Every tray is hand made by Carina in Norway to perfectly fit the shelf and not fly out, even in Ludicrous Mode it stays put. Its a very high quality product and can be ordered in your preference of materials and colors.

    Skip to 2 minutes and 49 seconds for Carinas tray...



    Love my Carina Tray so much I ordered a 2nd one as a gift... I helped create 2 new products on her page the first by ordering the first mulitcolor full alcantara tray, its alcantara outside with a red alcantara interior as well... its called the Premium Alcantara Tray Red with Red Tab

    and second new product, the first tray with blue alcantara interior she's made. I gave this as a gift for a friend with a blue car.... heres a shot of the material on a blue car

    and pictures of the first blue tray made :cool:

    Looks great. I remember she was massively sold out a while ago. Needs to raise the price!

    Yes I was part of that initial 100+ order surge and had to wait for mine to arrive, she quoted me a production date in an email and did ship a full month earlier then she quoted!! My second order was delivered in under a month...

    $175 for a tray. Pretty hefty price.

    The black "leather"/black Alcantara one is $151, including international shipping.

    The all black Alcantara version is $121 including shipping.

    It's still less expensive than the cheap feeling plastic one from EvAnnex.

    I feel they are fairly priced for the high quality materials and the workmanship. Id also like to point out again these are handmade products not made in a factory like the plastic trays on the market. Each trays materials are cut and then stitched together to your order specifications. It's a very high quality piece to hold in your hand or touch in your car vs the plastic trays. Even when sliding it in or out it has a quality feel and sound vs the plastic tray and the noise that they make (watch Bjorn's video @4:30 for an example of this) Each handmade tray is also serialized with number on the outside back.

    You are so right. I picked up my 75D about 10 days ago and have be working on some reasonable priced items. First I had to make a tool to remove the front plate bolts, then had to make a adapter to hold my iPhone 6+ , as I have a thin case and it will not fit into the supplied supports & my wife has a iPhone 6 which is different size. Then after finding out about the shelf under the 17" screen ( which I did not know was there until reading posts about the cubby tray) sure enough, when I took delivery, there it was. Looking at what is available, I decide to make my own, I have done 3 prototypes that look good and would cost less that 50% of what is available and still be hand made. I am currently working design changes and sourcing material. When I have a completed unit I will post some photos for comments.

    Can these be laser scanned and 3D printed afterwards? Maybe leaving about 0.5mm for a leather or synthetic covering?

    I ordered one of these a week ago or so. Got a reply that said it should be ready by February / March next year. About the same as ordering a new Tesla!

    That's the same drawer for sale on EV Everything. Their cover page says it is only $39, but when you click through to the product it says $149. A little bait and switch for you. Also doesn't list P100D as being compatible, but don't see why it would be any different from any other current model.

    A P100D deserves a luxurious handmade tray to match your interior IMO vs a plastic one :rolleyes:

    Hand laid carbon fiber insert/sleeve and tray with spring lock mechanism is what we deserve for $150+.

    What we have today is simple and easy and not luxurious. Nothing about these cars are simple and easy. Just look at the glove compartment/cubby.

    Nothing wrong with simple. As long as it's $19.95.

    Yes, that is why I ordered the hand made version from Carina. I just have to wait until February / March for it to arrive.

    I just ordered one, black leather with black alcantara interior. Total with shipping right under $160. No word on when it will be delivered. I did as much research as I could on this before buying and I think this is the best one out there that doesn't look or feel cheap. I think it will compliment the black leather dash as well (which is really why I chose it). $160 seems pricey but honestly nothing in this category that I could find was significantly less than that. Looking forward to receiving it.

    Let me know when you receive yours (and what your thoughts are) please, it will give me a gauge on when I should get mine.

    When I ordered mine Carina emailed me with an estimated delivery time.. if you don't hear from her in a few days you might try sending her a message on Facebook she usually responds in minutes or next day if its night time there...
