    Could Tesla have chosen a material more prone to greasy marks than the sliding door on the centre console? One day of driving and I have to clean it because it makes me crazy to see the shiny marks. What does everybody use for cleaning? Anything that prevents it from getting so nasty looking so fast?

    I've been meaning to ask the same question. Everything I have in the garage goes on in streaks.

    I clean the interior (minus the seats, alcantara, screens, and glass) with a little Dawn dishwashing liquid mixed in a bucket of warm water. I use two microfiber towels, one to dip in the bucket, squeeze out, then I wipe down a section of the interior. I then use another microfiber towel to wipe it dry.

    Rinse and repeat! ;)

    Wow. Good tip. Even doors and lower dash with the pup?

    Did you get your misaligned trim resolved? I dodged that one on mine. What's odd is that I'd have been annoyed by my various issues (headliner and panel gaps) if on an Audi or MB but I'm all patience because it's Tesla.

    I use a plush dry microfiber towell. Works perfectly. I keep it in the car and wipe the screen anytime i see fit

    Yes, works wonderfully on the inside door panels.

    If you want a different solution check out the Ultimate Center Console in the Vendor section. It is the console that should have come with your Model S.
