My only hesitancy in ordering the console is covering up the beautiful Matte Obeche yacht floor. Can you see the yacht floor through the console at any point?
What exactly do you prefer about the Tesla console?I bought my car private party and it came with the evanex console installed, took it out after a week because i did not like it at all. Drove without a console for about 6 months and just got my official tesla console installed and i couldn't be happier. it looks so good.
Did not think I would need it so drove the car for 1 year and got tired of how empty and messy it looked so had one installed and now wonder why I did not do it from day one, love it.I'm really thinking about getting the Premium Front console from Tesla. What is the overall consensus on this? And does anyone recommend anything else? And lastly how's the experience ordering and having it installed prior to delivery?
Thanks for the information, might have to test drive another one with the console in it ... my car is on order ... the bottle holder felt flimsy on the one car I investigated. Might see if I can live without it or perhaps the price will drop.I love mine and use it every day. Finally somewhere to put things. The price is ridiculous. $200: OK. $650: come on!!! I looked at the EVAnnex (same absurd price) one too and thought the Tesla was much more attractive and useful. It has a huge amount of space under the sliding top. I have seen a few DIYs and other solutions that look like they work well. But I think they don't look up to snuff compared to the interior. Just my OCD opinion.
Oh, and to answer GasKilla's question:
-The area under the flip down cover is great for my sunglass clip ons, parking garage ticket things and other stuff that doesn't really move around while driving. I actually leave that area open all the time. I have never closed it except to see that it works. Just a useful space that is close to hand and easy to pick something up without looking, like my clips. The charge port for my phone is nice, though I rarely need it.
-I like that I can close the sliding cover to hide whatever I have down in there. I actually carry almost nothing in my cabin. I like things spartan, clean and organized.
-The space under the slider is just plain huge, as mentioned above. I goes surprisingly far forward. I can fit my DSLR with a long lens in there, not problem...and close it. Very handy for a photog.
- The adjustable cup holder thingys are very convenient. I have one spaced for my 1 litre water bottle and the other spaced to fit a nice plastic jar that I use for small trash. I am a gum chewer and have to put it somewhere...seeing used gum is not up to Miss Tess' standards!
-Visually, it fits perfectly with the rest of the car.
Hope this helps those on the fence. I still think the price is insulting.
