    Okay, so most auto makers sell accessories for their vehicles. I'm not talking about the stuff that you can equip the car with but the other things like rubber floor mats and roof racks. I know that there's a post about roof racks 'round here somewhere but what are some of the other things that people would like to see?

    I would like rubber floor mats. They're not all that classy but I live in Oregon and without them cars start to smell funky after a few winters of wet shoes. I also want some kind of trunk tray so that the dogs don't get mud all over everywhere.

    I know that they sell mugs and things for the roadster, but what else do they need?

    At least with the numbers Tesla is delivering there is a good chance of aftermarket. There are rubber mats for the Roadster, and many Lotus accessories fit as well.

    Yes, I always get rubberized mats. Don't look classy, but neither does mud on your carpet!

    steel or textile grill to keep the dogs or luggage in the trunk! (in case of accident)

    rubber floormat for frunk and trunk

    luggage-suitcases that fit the frunk

    bag for keeping your charger protected

    TESLA door-sill stickers (as on the roadsters)
    TESLA sunshade sticker for the frontwindscreen

    bicycle-rack

    net for fixing luggage in frunk & trunk (car is so silent I guess you could else hear your luggage move)

    special gloves that are usable with the touchscreen

    110v outlet, so you can connect all kind of appliances to your car! (barbecue, laptop, lights, stereo, tv, ...)

    (heated) blanket to get nice and warm for the passengers

    I would love to see an inexpensive level 1 EVSE, completely separate from your primary charger. Essentially an extension cord with a Model S plug on one end. Something that you would feel comfortable using to tap into that 110v outlet on a lightpost in the middle of a parking lot, far out of sight. It needs to be cheap enough that it is not a huge loss if someone runs off with it, and separate from your primary charger, so that your car does not become a very expensive paperweight until you replace it if does get stolen. 5 miles per hour charge is NOT worth the risk of a $1000+ mobile charger.

    I don't know if it is technically possible or not, but a "Tesla to Tesla" jump start cable would be a cool accessory. It would be cool to be able to transfer some juice from one model S to another, if one runs out of charge 10 miles from a power outlet. Us Tesla fans need to be able to look out for each other.

    A car cover, with a shield flap for the charger port.

    This should come standard you'd think?

    Awesome idea! But this would have to be done by Tesla themselves I would think? Quick, email them...

    I like this idea but I am pretty sure that Tesla as said that the charger cable will only release from the car if you have the key.

    ... or apply excessive force.

    I'd almost rather have the cable stolen than deal with damage caused by someone who's determined to take it no matter what.

    All cars that I know of come standard with rubber floor mats here in Norway. My Leaf certainly did. If you want textile mats over here you'll have to buy them separately.

    I'd like a roof rack please. And even better, a hitch...

    Tesla's been pretty clear: roof racks, yes; hitch, no.

    With all the touch screen devices out there, you can find several companies selling this. Look around -- probably cheaper than what an auto maker would likely charge for an accessory like this.

    i know, but if tesla can provide them, following their own vision of luxury
    It's no reason because others provide it, Tesla shouldn't!

    There are several companies who will make car mats (wide variety of choices, colors) to your floor diagram, with a logo or something similar sewn in, for about $100 per set (fronts).
