I have an interesting dilemma. My P85 is supposed to come Monday (whohoo!) and I'm working through the final paperwork. My original order was mishandled, the victim of an understandable mistake on the part of Tesla when I changed my mind about some of the options and they misunderstood the changes I was trying to make. Much later (as my car was already being built) I realized they'd mistakenly left out the pano roof. Andrew King in the Maryland office has been great to work with and helped me comb through a collection of cars they had in inventory or coming off the line, and they were able to find a car similar enough to what I wanted. It was a new car, just coming off the line, intended for showroom use.
As a result my car has an option that is not yet available to consumers: a "yacht floor". Basically a trim-matching carbon-fiber plate with non-slip silicon "runners" that clips into the center bay between the front seats, and makes a classier-looking floor down there. Andrew was able to find a picture of one in the Obeche trim:
The problem is, they want to charge me $500 and I'm not interested at that price. Andrew suggested there might be folks interested in buying it off of me - he claims it is easy to remove and install - especially since its a not-yet-available option.
I'm just writing here to gauge interest - no commitment. Would you pay $500+shipping from Virginia to be the first on your block with a yacht floor in your Tesla?
