Posted on October 11, 2013 by Matt Pressman

We wanted to update everyone on some new developments here at! We also have some really, really big news, but, it's only reserved for VIP List members - so please sign up to learn more.  

Tony Hawk and his CCI

We were pretty thrilled when the skateboarding super-legend, Tony Hawk, reached out to us about's Center Console Insert. Turns out he needs the CCI (Center Console Insert) to help better organize his new Tesla Model S interior based on all the travel he does on the West Coast. He was gracious enough to send us a pic of the installed CCI (see below). He was very pleased that he still had plenty of room to spare in his storage box after installing the Center Console Insert into his Tesla Model S!

Some Really Hot Wheels

Being a father-and-son family business, I was pretty excited to see my father (aka "Soflauthor" on the forums) celebrate his one year Model S ownership anniversary with a brand new set of ultra-hot wheels.  These wheels are available through our good friend, Elie Rothman, who is currently the only retailer worldwide that stocks the CCI at his store in Los Angeles, Al & Ed's Autosound - West Hollywood.  Elie also owns TSportline and we were one of the first to get these amazing wheels.

National Plug In Day

We had a fantastic time at the National Plug In Day event in West Palm Beach and met some wonderful Model S owners and folks from Tesla (Dania Beach Service Center) who were there with two Model S test vehicles. They were booked up all day with other EV owners wanting test drives! I've attached some photos from the event (from top to bottom, 1. Welcome signage, 2. my wife and Model S (she's also our featured "model" in the CCI's Installation Video), 3. CCI fan, Steve C.'s famous matte black P85+, 4. a new brown Model S and it's new "frunk" friend.

x2 Second Cup Holder Add-on 

In the past 6 months, many CCI owners have asked us to provide a second cup holder within the Center Console Insert itself. Enter the x2 Second Cup Holder add-on! This new product extension provides the option for a second cup holder in the CCI. x2 is an easily installed and easily removable addition for an existing or new Center Console Insert. Installed within the CCI's closed storage space, it provides you with an additional, modular cup holder that is integrated within the Center Console Insert design and aesthetic. It can even be concealed under the tambour door (James Bond style) and, still provides extra room for storage of a wallet, ID cards, and other small objects. For more info, visit our x2 page. A recent recipient actually posted this beautiful gallery of photos online too.

We want to thank you for continuing to check in with and look forward to offering you more products to enhance and compliment your Model S.
