EVANNEX or TAPTES Model S rear center console?

EVANNEX or TAPTES Model S rear center console?

Hi I am looking for a Model S rear center console, unfortunately Tesla does not sell it anymore. I am considering choosing the EVANNEX or TAPTES, most owners would prefer the original design (me included). I just want to make sure if the EVANNEX RCCI or TAPTES RCCI could match my black interior.
Please advice.

I'm using this one and it works well for what we need it to do. Quite a bit cheaper than the alternatives but still looks great in the tan interior.

@nothotpocket. Ooohhhh....those are pretty! I'm thinking the wallaby white would look great in our "ultra white" interior.

@avesraggiana The company is focused on vintage cars so they have a surprising range of colors to match most interiors. You can request swatches for free on their website. For my tan interior, the 'Camel' turned out to be a great match.

@nothotpocket. Thanks for demo-ing your rear centre console. I agree, it matches your upholstery very nicely. Thanks again.

@nothotpocket: Looks great : )

Thanks! Not as posh as the Evannex or Taptes, I'm sure, but definitely does what we need it to do :-)

@nothotpocket. Just received my cupholders plus today and it looks great. Do you fasten the unit in the backseat using the straps or no?

@gdthomson29 Glad it works for you :-) I ran the strap through the LATCH anchor in the middle seat. The strap comes out of the storage area, down through the anchor, and then through the buckle underneath. I tilt the console sideways and tighten the strap, then rotate (lay?) the console down in place. I've only done it a couple of times so far - there's probably a modification to the strap I could do to make it easier if I had to remove the console often but this works for me.
