    While waiting on my Model X delivery I am obsessing over what things I need to have on hand to make those initial days after delivery go well. There are a lot of possibly useful things to buy, but since I don't have my car yet it's hard to evaluate them. Here's what I have so far:

    - The little leather drawer that slips in the cavity on the dashboard
    - Multiple adapters for the UMC charger
    - The smartphone docking kit (little USB cables and brackets)

    I am thinking I will want the electric tire inflator/goop kit, does one come with the car? And I know I'll need sunshades, but not sure which ones. And floor mats for the driver and front-seat passenger. This is a five-seater to I'm not sure of the best way to handle mats over the rear storage.

    But you guys know more than me, what do you recommend?

    I really like my Abstract Ocean silicone key fob pocket. You can buy it direct or on Amazon.

    I also bought a trunk organizer that I keep in the front trunk.

    Cubby hold drawer is a must have. Telsa should have included it. We got the one from Norm of this forum. Worth every penny.

    Agree. We got ours in different colors so we can tell the keys apart.

    Do those cup holders work better than the factory one with smaller sized coffee cups?

    I get small (Starbucks tall) drinks and the factory holder pops the lid off the cup because the cup is so short. So I have to use the arm rest coffee holders instead of the more convenient holders in the center console.

    Hi yes the ev amped cup holder hold way better there is a removal rubber insert to as well for larger cups ...they are pricey but I just can’t stand the flimsy stock ones as they don’t stay in place well

    This is our 3rd Tesla (previous two were Model S), so we've gone through this twice before.

    This is what we'll have ordered after delivery:
    • colored key fob cover (so we can distinguish between our red S 100D and tour blue X 100D)
    • 10-30 and 14-30 Gen 2 UMC adapters, to support emergency charging from older and newer dryer outlets
    • Tesla phone charging dock, using only the USB-C cable and the dock connector
    • 3rd party phone charging side clips, to support our Galaxy S9+ phones, inside a case, that doesn't fit within Tesla's supplied clips
    • blue Tesla touch-up paint
    • Tesla's front and rear seat floor mats (for our 7 seat configuration)
    • two ultra white bath sheets (the large seats) as temporary seat covers (when we're wet or dirty), adding snaps to hook around seat headrests
    • EZ tag bar to place on the front license plate (so we didn't have to mess with a windshield sticker)
    We had already purchased the tire pump/repair kit - and transferred that from our 2012 S P85.

    We already had a 14-50 outlet for charging our second Tesla - with a 14-50 connector and Tesla's cable organizer. Though we are temporarily using our Gen 2 UMC for charging, due to the Gen 1 charger incompatibility Tesla is dealing with on the newer vehicles (until they issue a fix - most likely through a software update).

    What do you mean a removal rubber insert for larger cups? your pic really looked rather small. What part of it is removable?

    Anyone know of a wireless charging dock that drops in where the Tesla charger connector does? I never know what phone I will buy next, but I know it will have wireless Qi charging.

    I looked at those and through it would just end up with food, pocket lint, and other detritus stuck in the cracks. And the main issue was my wife did not like it.:D
