    Hi everyone,

    One of my concerns with the Model S is the sheer lack of interior storage. So I ordered the premium centre console. I read on the internet that there have been numerous quality issues with it. Has anyone in HK had it installed? If so, what has been your view regarding the quality and overall usefulness and review of the accessory.

    Cheers.

    saw the real thing in flesh at the service center when taking delivery, it's horribly made, looks tacky and cheap, and can't match carbon fiber or other wood trims, I think it only comes in solid black. I will never go for it.

    I have it installed and I don't agree that it's poorly made. It's much more tidy and provide good storage space. I always have the back compartment with phone connector open so the mismatch finish is not a big problem for me.

    I had it installed in June with my delivery, and there is no way I could say it's horribly made. It's very clever, it's sturdy, looks great in the car, and in my opinion is the same quality as the rest of the interior. Wouldn't be too concerned about the black. The small hinged lid is gloss black and to be honest mine stays open so you never see that. The sliding lids are a matt black so work well with similar bits in the car.

    I had mine installed a few weeks ago, it is in no way cheaply made. It looks and feels like a OEM product and I'm quite satisfied with it.

    once your vin is alocated, simply ask your delivery specialist to arrange it - that's the australian method. May be different in HK

    Here are some quick snapshots. Sorry for the poor quality as they were taken with a cellphone. You can see that I have the rear compartment open so the piano black panel is actually not visible. I have a USB port plugged in the 12V socket which prevent the panel from closing.

    Hi, Phil K, did you order it via Tesla?

    Looks ok to me based on those photos. My hope is that when I get it, the fit is secure. I saw a youtube video of how it wobbles around.

    The price tag is fairly terrible.

    The fit is solid with no wobbling.

    I also had the console installed recently and i agree that its a great solid product. while there is no carbon fibre match it is is indeed in piano black only, it still looks like its an original add on and does not stand out from the rest of the trim.
