    Nice! Just ordered. A lot cheaper than the executive seat option, plus you can still use the middle seat if ever needed.

    Nigel, I hope you've seen this. Here's the rear center console you've been waiting for. Apparently, Tesla heard your request.

    LOL.

    Kind of interesting though that these have become available out of the blue before the front center console ones in anything other than black. Wonder why. Design issues?

    Ordered mine.

    I've wanted something for the back for a while, I even thought about getting executive read seats when I upgrade (but did not want to loose the rear seats folding down for the occasions I need the space)

    I think its funny they have this in all finishes and leather colors, but the front console is still Piano black only.

    I have ordered one so that my kids don't complain that they have no place for drinks and adults are more comfortable with the arm rest.

    I'd sent an email to Tesla last night about the grey leather being sold out and asking to get put on the waiting list. Email came back this morning saying it was a mistake and has been fixed. So I ordered.

    This is what I received from Tesla in the UK:
    "Unfortunately this item cannot be retro fitted and can only be added at point of order for new vehicles. Currently not a upgrade option on UK cars."

    Retrofitted??? Gary

    Looking at the pictures the console looks identical to the console that comes with the executive seats option. Now I have no regrets about not having executive seats.

    There was another thread somewhere here that explained that there were some safety issues related to the flip up piece during crash testing which is why the other trims were delayed.

    Agreed 100%

    I am thinking as well...Wish it was way lower... $300 or so

    Keep in mind that while the console is installed in the car, it will be impossible to fold the larger portion of the seat back forward for carrying cargo such as tires in the rear trunk. The smaller, passenger side of the seat back will still fold forward, allowing for skis, etc. But for me, having to remove the console to carry a bicycle wouldn't be worth the hassle.

    As long as this console is detachable and will fit in the frunk or rear trunk lower portion, I think all will be well in the world.

    I'm curious as to how it will hold up to bumps in the road with only one tie down point, though. Will review and report back when I get it.
