    Alas when I click on the console wrap on amazon they're all either unavailable or I get 'Currently, there are no sellers that can deliver this item to your location.'

    There was a website that was selling them but they wanted more for shipping than the cost of the item, so that's a no..

    So in relation to RHD mats, I found these guys....

    Diamond Car Mats Black and Black Stitching Luxury Car Mats Set - Premium Car Floor Mats

    I got a centre console rap kit and also the door handle wraps.... (Im not a fan of chrome... whole car will be getting de-chromed!) from TeslaBros in the US. Just be aware that you get hit with Customs duty and Royal Mail charge an £8 handling fee which ironically was more than the customs duty!!!

    Taptes have good prices, good rating, a wide range of accessories and free delivery to the UK.

    Apparently there's bit of a gap around the glass roof which causes wind noise so you can buy a rubber insert which closes the gap and reduces the noise, of course I'll only be able to verify that when (maybe if) I ever get my Car !

    I agree I've bought a couple of things from them and free UK delivery also no Customs Duty think they ship from China for awareness but only took a week or so for me.

    Think they'll be the same on all Models.
    I bought the Gtech C2 'cos it got good reviews and you can multi layer it which seemed like a good approach especially as I bought Black as it's prone to scratches etc. If I ever get my Car and I can then advise how this all works I'll post an update.

    Alas Taptes don't do white console wraps. Know any sites with free/low shipping that do?

    Given the waiting list for the car we should probably have a parallel thread to this called “Model 3 for your accessories”. For those aspiring to actually get the car to join their accessories. Eventually.

    Those charging pads, wheel caps and wind deflectors must be feeling very lonely on the shelf.

    Received my Caps & lug nut covers from an eBay seller from China - £10 for the full set (4 caps & a bag of lug nuts). Took about 9 days to deliver

    Must say they are very good quality and the centre cap is metal logo cap on a plastic as seen in the photos and not 3d printed. Also the lug nut covers are not 3d printed and formed very nicely

    I have not tried fitting to see how well they fit as that is the next accessory i need, a Model 3!

    @davidmc Is the seller still offering these? Got a link to the listing?

    Seems worth taking a punt on for the price, though I’m pretty tempted by the floating wheel centre caps, because I think they look awesome (no LED though, that’s just tacky).

    There are some videos of you tube of these. They do work apparently but can be a pig to fit and in some cases the roof alignment was so poor that the gap was too uneven to fit them. Too big in some places and too small in others. Hopefully an early build issue but just so you are aware.

    These are for the removal of the Aero cover 18inch wheel ones. Just wanted to clarify :)

    link to where i got them: For Tesla Model 3 S & X Center Cap Set Aero Wheel Cap Kit & Wheel Lug Nut Cover | eBay

    you have to note in your purchase what colour you want (Red or White logos) the white is really metal and not white

    Thanks for that! Do you know if there's a difference in the size required for aero wheels and the size required for the centre cap on the 19"/20" wheels? I've been assuming it's the same. I'm getting the aeros.

    Sorry, not sure about that. Not sure if you can get sizes of the guys selling the caps?

    Bjorn has done a YouTube comparison of Model-3 Floor Mats - dunno if the ones he has tested are available here
