    I picked up my X on July 3 and they had no key chains to attach the fob to, and haven't had them in since (and don't know if/when they will get more). Anyone find another source that has the mini-lanyard that fits in the key?

    Thanks

    I was surprised when I picked up my X last month. No keychain...no sway bag...nothing.

    I am not greedy or something. They should at least give out a keychain for a car closed to $100k.

    I did buy the keychain from Abstract Ocean, but the original keychain handled by Tesla for X was much nicer

    When I inquired with my DS if a key chain was going to be provided, he said there should be one but they don't expect to have them in stock for 2 mos. Hopefully we'll get our rear seat floor mats which we';re also told will arrive in "two months"...

    all service centers, galleries/stores are not equal, some are better than others.
    in your travels pop into a store or service center that you see and maybe they might have what you're after.

    They will ship them to you overnight Fedex, my DS was Justin Carol, in Burbank CA. They ran out of them last month and they will ship it to you. You are suppose to get two. Until we got ours via Fedex, we used sewing thread wrapped a few times until we got ours. Call your DS or call Justin.

    Does anyone have a picture? As someone that hasn't seen one and expecting my MX soon I want to know what to look and ask for. Thanks.

    They used S key fob holders on my X at delivery because they were out of the X ones. So perhaps there is a wide shortage.

    Anyone know where I can purchase the lanyard? I didn't get the box with the key fob when my car was delivered and I don't really like the pouches. Would just like the simple key ring that fits the fob perfectly, but can't seem to find it anywhere.

    Before I go bug my local SC again, has any of you new model X owner since early 2017 received an official lanyard or keychain for your model X FOB? If so, can you post a photo of it so I can show the SC. I can't stand the silicon covers sold online but wife needs to attach her FOB to her key chain (currently using a simple string looped under the battery cover which I am dreading will come apart).

    The official one also has a small loop of string attach to the hook under the battery cover. We got our 2 keychains inside the big gift box with our December 2017 delivery. The box also has a tool to open the keyfob battery cover. The Tesla store said they JUST got these in.. seems like they were out of them for a while.

    Found the image of the key chain and box on google image:
