    Is there a good TX key fob? i need key fob with embossed buttons on the top surface to help me find the various key functions.
    In fact, TX key is more bigger then TS key. i could not use TS key fob(silicone material) to hold TX key fob. :)
    So i interesting to know where to find a silicone TX key fob.

    There's leather and silicone options coming. I suspect the silicone will be first, but both are in the final stages.

    The S silicone sleeve is a little snug and the Frunk/Trunk buttons slightly off but works for me until the X version is available. :)

    Do you want that estimate in days or Tesla-days?

    I have the Model S silicone covers and I find them the best I've tried (I have several!). Abstract Ocean has been great and the Phone Holder for dash is tops as well!

    Ha. In Tesla time, next week. In real time, silicones by the end of July, give or take a couple of days, but it really is that close, the buffer is for the usual shipping and customs delays. I'll post a photo later to prove it's real :) Leather options are just as close, but the production tends to be a little slower, so I do think those will roll into August.

    I have an abstract ocean early key fob model for the Model X and can let you know it will be worth the wait. I will order two final ones as soon as they are available. In Red of course to match our X

    Here's a pic of the final production candidate for the silicone option:

    I only recently got hold of a real X key, so a large part of the design process and many of the tweaks are thanks to the TMC'ers that have provided feeedback on the various designs.

    Nice! Can't wait! What color options will you be offering?

    In the meantime I'm using the old Tesla holder which is just an accident waiting to happen. Here's my X key next to a fobpocketed S key. :(
