    I use it for transporting purchases and groceries. Convenient, easy access, and keeps everything in place. The hatch in the trunk works just as well, but I can't open the trunk all the way inside my garage because it will strike the garage door.

    Will a spare tire fit vertically?

    @brian It would be nice to have a removeable spare tire in the Frunk and let the owner decide if we want to use that space for something else

    I know a spare is removable but hopefully you know what I'm saying

    Not very often.

    But sometimes I have a lot of groceries or Costco items and I utilize the frunk. If I didn't have the frunk I would just use the rear seat floor or rearrange the trunk to make it fit.

    Honestly, not much because it's a bit of a pain to open and close, just like the S. Closing is the real slow down that requires two hands. If it were electric, I'd use it for groceries and other quick shop items, as well as my

    I will likely keep my tire inflation kit and other odds and ends there to keep trunk clear.

    Sorry, the word after "my" was umbroller/stroller.

    Perfect for groceries, lots and lots of groceries! When we pull into garage the frunk and kitchen door align perfectly! We use to back in Subaru, careful not to open house door due to exhaust, I never have to worry about that again!

    A rubber floor mat in case of spillage would be perfect!

    I will use the space for luggage when we're six people on a long trip, the trunk won't be sufficient to hold all our stuff.

    Definitely groceries. Ski boots and helmets on mountain trips. Humid towels after exiting from the public swimming pool, I hate the smell of chlorine. Tools when I lend a hand to a friend.

    Send me my X, I'll find lots of uses for the frunk!

    We use the frunk for secure storage. If you break into the cabin you do not have direct access to the frunk. One of the things I hate about traditional SUVs and hatchbacks is the lack of secure storage. In my S, I installed a gun safe in the frunk for increased security. Note that I store lots of different things in the "gun" safe. We will install a similar safe in the X next week.

    What brand and size of gun safe?
    I need the same for my X (When I get it)

    @Big T: Suggest you do a bit of research on MX frunk access--its a bit different than the MS (yes, I am being intentionally obtuse).

    In both our MS and MX, we have tire inflator kit, first aid kit, blankets and front license plates on suction cup mounts.

    I have been out of town and the X has been waiting to be delivered for two weeks. We are picking it up on Monday and I will take a look at the frunk differences then.

    A Tesla Moab leather bag containing a UMC with adapters, a Tesla tire inflator, small tool kit, gloves, micro fiber rag, mini first aid kit and a blanket.

    In the X I also carry the tow receiver if it is not installed and in use.

    I may add a blanket, sleeping bag, water bottles and warm coat depending on the time of year or planned travel distance and weather.

    So basically I use the Frunk for all the emergency prepairdness supplies I hope I never need and seldom access.

    My vote would be that if possible the Frunk be designed and shaped to allow for optional carriage of a spare tire, Jack and lug wrench. I know the high density urban dwellers can call for roadside help. In the Southwest help can be hours away on a 120 degree day.

    I hope that my folding bicycle will fit. It's a Bike Friday New World Tourist.

    I did use it for an umbroller today. It fit perfectly.
