    I love the stock Tesla console that allows me to size the cup holders when I need to store mondo sized movie theatre drinks. And since they sit deep inside, I can Ludicrous launch and not have worry about spills.

    When I don't have have large drinks like that, then just pull out the partitions and turn them around so they stack back to back saving the space but not tumbling about.

    How is it innovative? It's the ugliest thing I've seen in a long time.

    Aesthetics aside (I actually don't think it's that bad looking), I really like the functionality of the design.

    The website is beautiful. The console, not so much. For that price, might as well get the Tesla integrated console. If you have a yacht floor you can sell it for a few hundred dollars here on the forums bringing the price down closer to the aftermarket options.

    I like my Tesla console, but if there is one single pet peeve I had to pick, man I wish the phone charging location was in front of me, so I wouldn't have to glance down to see my phone. No I'm not USING the phone, but you still sometimes need to see it. My solution has been a magnet thing on the dash. But I just wish Tesla thought of this and gave us a USB charging spot somewhere in front .. (I know OBD port, but I hate having cables dangling around)

    .. this console .. not my style, but I do like that it brings the phone a bit forward.

    If this were $45, it would still be a POS.

    I think that's some harsh critcism... but it does look a bit less refined than I'd like to see. Also, it looks like it consumes the cubby?

    It's definitely overpriced and the lack of adding a rear cupholder makes a non-starter for me. I want the integrated console simply for the rear cupholders.

    One of my favorite things about my S is that it doesn't have a console at all.

    Before I had a Model S I knew I must have a center console.

    Then I got my P85 and it has the Yacht floor.. Now I can't imagine having a permeant console.. it's just so useful to have that open space to put stuff. My wife puts the diaper bag there and it has like 50 pockets to store stuff, fast food etc .. ends up there too. If I'm not driving with the wife I have a rubber drop in from top fit that will hold two more drinks and random stuff. Topfit Tesla Model S Silicone Center Insert Console Black | eBay

    I prefer the Yacht floor to a console any day.. if I were ordering a new Model S I would request a Yacht floor instead of the console.
