    And this:

    MandL | OCTOBER 6, 2012
    I don't remember reading this anywhere, but apologies if it's old info. On My Tesla page, status changes to "Delivered" and instead of "View Design" there is a "View Manuals" button.

    Bah humbug s802 :(

    Patience, my friend! Take a deep breath, try some yoga or TM (that's Transcendental Meditation since TM, the car company is not taking care of you) :)

    Has anyone heard anything new on this front? I have to be honest, even tho I'm on the list for Soflauthor's CCI, I'm rather digging the open space now. The only thing I'd prefer now is to have the ribbed floor and perhaps the cupholders as seen here:

    Other than that, the cubby works well for me, and I like putting things down in the center.

    Cupholders? I thought the left(front) part was sunglasses storage

    I'm sure that this is being worked in the background but not a priority right now. I was just thinking the other day about how I haven't heard any whining about it since people started getting their cars.

    Well allow me to whine a bit then. :wink:
    What I've learned after one week of ownership of a Performance S is that anything that is loose anywhere in the car will go flying as soon as you punch it. I keep my sunglasses in the cubby and they fly out every time I wanna have a little fun which is multiple times per drive. My phone slides back and forth and even things in the back slide around. I feel like I need velcro for everything I own so I can drive the car the way it wants to be driven without objects flying all over. Some kind of storage feels absolutely necessary at this point. Hurry up Soflauthor! :smile:

    Is this option still even on the table? I LOVE the matching trim lining the storage area.

    One can hope... Tesla has been quiet, so they MAY have scrapped it, but they've also taken time to roll out the cubbies, so who knows. Don't think it's going to be free though.

    No status update, but during my stop at the Scottsdale store yesterday, the "sales" guy said it is still coming and showed me pictures (the same as we've seen before).

    Cupholders still a must have here. It was 86F here today and having water bottles rolling about on the floor is a PITA.

    Where is the mid-console???

    I dont know - went to see a S today (Oslo) and was really put off by the lacking console. Look inside of a Panamera where the console is really a part of the interior. Let us face it - even if the shift stick is not needed, we lean towards the center while we drive and would like to have a nice look and feel for our right side. The open space makes me feel strange. No balance. My other impressions:
    - Wow - what a big screen! I dont know - have to get used to it.
    - Why not a sport seats option?

    These three issues were my negatives. Mostly I was very impressed by the look and feel of everything else. But you know what? The look and feel inside is really a go/no-go for a car enthusiast. I am in the thinking box: Should I accept these strange negatives in order to follow my "first mover" instinct for a nice EV? Or should I wait another year or so. Leaning towards the latter - that is so subjective we car drivers are....sorry Elon. BMW 525 xd or Tesla S - thats my dilemma. I will give it some more thought - I was so hopeful - but now strangely disappointed.

    Having driven my Model S for 1.5 weeks now, I personally like the open console a lot. I have the cubby already so I use that for iPhone cable and such. I don't need sunglasses in Seattle or coins for meters but those can easily go there. The only thing I want are the cupholders that are shown in the pics above. I have a simple idea but I need to prototype first. I will post if it works out.

    That rear console is #1 on my wish list. I think it looks nice and could be a decent storage option for some of the items that I like to have with me that I don't need immediate/frequent access to like a flashlight and pocket knife.

    I really hope they aren't too expensive when they are finally available.

    I'm not convinced that I need any sort of semi-permanent console mod; but I certainly don't like loose, messy items rolling around in the console recess of my elegant Tesla.


    I've been looking for a solution; and I've finally discovered one that works very well for me.

    I found this little soft tote at Michael's crafts store here in Austin, and it works perfectly. It fits snugly into the space and neatly holds glasses, pens, sticky notes, phone, and anything else I want to have within easy reach. Actually everything is much more accessible than when I had to grope around under the console lid on my prior car while trying to drive at the same time.



    I hope you find this helpful.

    I need somewhere to put my Starbucks venti ice tea cup, I take it everywhere and it's huge. And we need the back seat arm rest thing, that is a must!
