If you've recently ordered a model S, and are considering ordering a console that Tesla isn't yet selling (any finish other than Piano Black), you should write to [email protected] and ask to get on the waiting list. Doing so should result in your receiving an e-mail response, as I did, in which they let you know that when the console becomes available they will sell it to you at the $600-$800 price (depending on finish) that they sell the console for if ordered at the time the Model S is ordered instead of the $800-$1000 price they will be selling them for if purchased later. I wrote to them today, just to find out if Obeche Matte might be available before my P85D leaves the factory (it won't be--at least not for me) and was pleasantly surprised to learn that because I wrote, I'll wind up saving $200 if I do wind up buying the console. There's no downside, as you can always choose not to purchase the console when they contact you to let you know they have reached your position in the waiting list. If this is already common knowledge, I apologize, but I had not seen it posted.
