    I have just received my delivery from Abstract Ocean (Google search them) after reading quality reviews on Tesla USA forum.

    What can I say 9 days in total door to door for standard $15 shipping and goods very affordable and great quality, now just have to wait 10 weeks until car arrives.

    Give Pete a chance and feel sure he will be a bonus to us all.

    I ordered leather fobpocket, Kensington Powerbolt adaptor, magnetic phone holder & usb rotators as seem worthwhile additions. Tried out on current car and all fine so no reason not to believe will not work on Tesla as USA owners all happy.

    I ordered a couple of fobpockets yesterday morning. I got notification that they were shipped yesterday afternoon by US first calls post. Will see when they arrive. I thought $4.60 postage was pretty reasonable - I guess the amount was less than @smudger7's because of the size/weight.

    The phone holders are 7oz, so since the shipping is weight-based, they do bump up the price a bit. I do what I can to keep the international costs low...shipping FobPockets is easy, because they squash down nicely, so they can ship as a thick envelope, but anything deeper that 0.75 inches has to go as a package, and that adds a bit to the cost as well. Regardless, I hope you like your stuff, and your Model S's, the RHD version has been a long time coming!

    FYI, Tesla provides fobpockets on delivery. They are only neoprene, rather than leather, but still you might want to see before ordering. You also get a screen cleaner. I think the other items mentioned or comparable are readily available on Amazon.

    Sometimes they provide a key holder on delivery, but in terms of the history of these, I was the first to make any kind of storage for the Model S key, Tesla, I guess, copied my design, but that was a first generation version which was based on a Caselogic USB holder. Since then my neoprene FobPockets have evolved into 2 designs and a dozen options, and we've recently started the leather and silicone variants. The Tesla one is free, which is great, but maybe that ~£250 key needs a slightly plusher home :)
