    They look pretty neat, I think i would like something like that, but for $120 ish? Seems pricey for a piece of molded rubber/plastic from china.

    I like it! It's way overpriced though.

    If you buy it please let all of us know how it works out (fit and finish).

    Thank you.

    Wow, they need help with their copy...

    Welcome to visit Topfit.
    At the Tesla, as the most depressing is that there is no store container box, in order to prevent the driver or passengers litter, small objects and bottles, we design the front store content box.
    Actually we designed so many center cup holder, few customer feel like a little bit small for the old version. So our team designed this one. This one is bigger and also will be much more fit for Tesla. Please choose what you like. No service installation necessary, just put on the car. We will keep developing things for Tesla with time pass by. Only to solve your worries!!

    Thanks, I'll keep my eye on .ca. The way the exchange rate is though it might be insane.

    I sent them an email through Amazon requesting it. I am so buying one, it's exactly what I've been waiting for. Simple, short, cheapish. I paid $900+ for my rear Tesla console to have cupholders in the back and I only wanted something small for the front so you can still put bigger items on top still.

    From that amazon link, I had seen their "first version" and it didn't interest me at all. This one looks like it might be worth trying.

    my wife surprised me with the 1st version - it was like 1/4 the size it needed to be - it was returned.

    this version looks a bit better - please report back.

    From the photos - it still doesn't appear to utilize all available space. is it 4" short again from the front? do they not measure before making these things?

    I think this size is ok, if too big it will be take too much space, and also can not easy to take in and take out

    I got one for $60. Once It's in the car, I'll let you know.

    I don't like how it doesn't go all the way to the front, leaving some space 'unused', but i also would like somewhere to put my shades, keys, phone, etc, where they don't fly all over the freaking place just because the car can 0-60 in 5.4... ya know? #SportsCarProblems

    I suspect they monitor both this site and their views on Amazon so when we all started looking at, talking about, and ordering the part they raised the price. Too bad it will kill any chance of success. I would have bought one at $60, but NEVER at $100. It's silicone injection molded from China - costs about $5.00 to make after the tooling is fully depreciated.
