OK, lets see... Tesla model S on order... check. HPWC installed in garage... check. Straight-jacket ready for the wait... (wife took care of this). how to operate the touch screen when it's really cold out... hmm... So, I did a search for touch screen gloves (Google "touch screen gloves" nearch) nope, nothing I liked. Then I saw the "touch screen gloves" at the Tesla store (Tesla — Men's Touch Screen Leather Driving Gloves). They looked pretty good, but I wanted to try them on for size. However, as it turns out, the Tesla stores and service centers don't carry any thing from the design collection, just the apparel. so I put it off for a while. Fast forward to Christmas, I had just received my Model S a week or so earlier and my wife gave me the Tesla gloves for a Christmas present. So for anyone who is interested, here are my thoughts: Un-boxing: They came in a nice black cardboard box. Not as nice as some, but for something I am going to throw away soon, it's probably just about right. However, on the side of the box, something splooged onto the side of the box. Not enough to return it, (after all, I am going to be throwing it away soon.)but annoying for an expensive set of gloves. In the box: Inside the box was a nice red TESLA pouch with the gloves in it... complete with silica gel. (and nope, I didn't eat it). (PART 2 in the next post).
