    Can someone with a Model S please post the width and height of the cubby? I think it's about 9" x2" but I need to be certain, as I'm making something to fit into the space when my car is delivered.

    Maybe a door for it? Certainly needs one as my glasses often fly out when stomping on it. :)

    I making a carbon fiber faced box (to match the CF decor I've ordered) for the Passpsort 8500ci radar detector controller, the Blinder Laser Jammer remote switch, and the Parking Dynamics on/off switch for the front bumper sensor. I don't want to mount this stuff on the dash, as it will look so much like aftermarket add-ons. The cubby has enough space and I likely wouldn't have use it anyway.

    By using the cubby for this purpose I can make these devices look like they came with the car. All related controller hardware will be in the box so that the wiring will be easy to route and the USB connections to upgrade the Passport and Blinder software and firmware can be made from the faceplate. I'm working on it now and should have it finished in about a week or two. I'll post photos when it's done. I love to do this kind of stuff anyway and have the skill and tools to get it done. It will be unique, which is part of the idea.

    Sweet! Those would be my three picks for mods too. I currently have my fx's cig lighter area filled with three switches for mods and you can easily open close the area cover. Unfortunately, I'd want to out my cell phone in the cubby unleas they come out with the console with cell phone holder.

    I'll also be getting the Center Console Insert (CCI), which leaves the cubby accessible. So I think I'll have the storage issue resolved.

    Thanks for the info! I'm interested in seeing the pix. I don't have any skills in this area but I like to see what people do along these lines.

    Has everyone gotten their cubbies now? My car came without the cubby, in fact it had a diagnostic cable just hanging down from under the main screen. Tesla got me a cover to hide the diagnostic cable, but still no cubby. I never thought I would get my CF spoiler before the cubby.

    No, no cubby, nor 4.0 upgrade.

    No cubby here, I was under the impression that the cubbies were not going to be retrofitted. Hopefully I'm mistaken!

    Don't hate me because I have a cubby and a spoiler.

    Still need to get my Paint Armor and HPWC though.

    My understanding is that the cubby will be added to every car. I suppose someone who got a car whiteout one could ask not to have it installed, but I think that you'll certainly have the option.

    Do you have a source for that? I was under the impression they would be installed after the fact, and I was certainly expecting it to be.

    I now have an appointment with our local Tesla Service Manager for my cubby to be installed on Thursday here in Marietta, GA.

    Every time I see the word "cubby" my mind reads that as "chubby", as in I have a chubby for my Model S. Yes, I'm 12 years old.

    I don't, for some reason that was just the assumption I had.

    I have a cubby. And I like your ideas. Quite a bit. Please show results as I, for one, am interested as well.
