Ok. I have had my "S" for 3 months now and absolutely love it. There is one thing that I absolutely hate. I am the poor slub that has to wear a suit most days to work and I am not about to wear my jacket while I am driving, I don't need my clients thinking that I sleep in it and that's what it would look like. Why in god's name wouldn't they install a 25 cent piece of plastic that has so much utility and takes no space.
I first thought that with all the engineering that went into this car there was no time for anyone to give it any thought, or that no true designer or engineer would dare be assigned to this ridiculously small task and they gave it to an intern instead who was too busy tweeting his buddies about his big job at Tesla to finish the task. I'll kill him when I find him. Then I thought that with my two Masters degrees that I should be able to find some nook or cranny that I could jab a coat hook into (I do not have a pano roof) and I'll be darned, I can't find a single place to hang a darn hanger in the whole car. It was then that I decided in some cruel joke to the suits of the world (it is silicon valley) an engineer was hired to specifically design the interior to be sure that nobody could hang their jacket. Maybe I am being a little bit paranoid, but I need to be able to hang my coat so it stops falling on the floor on nearly every trip.
I called Tesla service to ask why I didn't have a hook, surely it must have just been left off my car since every car from my first (a new $4,995 Ford Escort where everything but the coat hanger broke in the first 3 years) to my nearly $100,000 BMW and everything in between had one or even up to three of the things in the car. The answer, and I quote- "I was told it was to save weight" .......sorry, I had to stop writing for 10 minutes to stop laughing again.... really??? do you know what this car weighs??
I then asked if it would be difficult to stop in the parts department at my local friendly BMW store and bought the 25 cent piece of plastic from them for $289 (my guess based on life experience) and drill it in myself. The answer, and I quote "that doesn't sound like a good idea, you don't know what you will hit"...... sigh
Ok, now to my questions
1) Has anyone ever seen Elon in a suit
2) Does anyone know the previously mentioned intern, I am looking for him
3) I have done some serious performance mods on past cars so don't laugh at me when I ask my serious question... does anyone know how to do a retrofit to get a hook in the rear of the car behind the drivers seat in the headliner where they should have put one in the first place? It is a sedan after all and I have to pay for it all the same, and though I live in the bay area--- I am not one of the fortunate ones that gets to make a hefty living going to work in jeans and a t-shirt.... IDEA.... forget the hook, how do I get one of those jobs?
