Okay. Maybe Tesla forgot to give me a cover / holder for my owner's manual. Did anyone else receive one?

If not, this is absolutely the first new or used car that I have owned without a manual cover. I mean, even my Fiat 500e has a manual holder.

If anyone needs one, I've found one on Amazon that should fit the bill. I'll let you know in a few days, should anyone be interested.
BTW, I have searched the forum for similar posts. Nothing.

Wait, is there actually a physical copy of the owners manual? I thought it was only digital on the screen...
a plastic wrapped printed copy will be in the glovebox, but even if it was printed the day the VIN was assigned, it likely will be out of date by the delivery date.

I had two small manuals with limited info (safety and security?) which seems pretty static compared to the full manual in the MCU which is constantly updating.

If I had any better things to put in the glove box, I'd probably put the manuals in a file at home since they're redundant.

I see an opportunity for Evannex or another Tesla aftermarket provider to offer a logoed pouch (in various colors and materials) for the hardcopy documents. :)

Yes, actually, there are more than just the Tesla manual and warranty info that one needs to keep in the glove box. Insurance proof, car registration, clean air sticker registration, California court case stating you can't be pulled over for just window tint, and miscellaneous cards. I like to be organized, otherwise my glove box is a mess when I need it. At a sobriety checkpoint, "Sorry officer, just a few more minutes and I'll find that pesky regifrashion, I mean registration."

@Unplugged,

Do you have a link or reference for the binder?
Sure. Here's the Amazon link for the document holder:

The decal is available on Etsy as a laser cut vinyl. The size is 1/2 inch. There are many stores, but I ordered it with small lettering.

EDIT:
The guy seems to be on holiday until 5/24, so I can't link to his store.

But if you want to go bigger, I found these:

https://www.etsy.com/listing/615733...h_query=tesla laser decal&ref=sr_gallery-3-13

and if you wanted to go full metal, how about this:

The guy seems to be on vacation until 5/24, so the cart doesn't work.
Oh and sorry follow up question — does it smell bad? I’ve had bad experience with buying cheaper “leather” like products on eBay/Amazon and noticed that they often have a very strong smell that doesn’t seem to go away.

EDIT - also the Etsy link is for your transaction not the item :)

No smell whatsover.

Sorry about the Etsy link. I'm not much of a Etsy guy, so I haven't yet figured out how to get back to the offer. I'll see what I can do.

EDIT - I added a few more options.

If he is back from Holiday could you please share the original link you use to purchase your decal?
Much appreciated.

Here is the type:
https://www.etsy.com/listing/550851...ga_search_query=tesla&ref=shop_items_search_4

Here is type with logo.
https://www.etsy.com/listing/550849...ga_search_query=tesla&ref=shop_items_search_1

The size is selectable, so go to the drop down. Stuff is about $5 including postage. (I ordered a few different types, having no idea what else I could use them for, of course.)

Side note on the owners manual cover that @Unplugged found for us...

I thought for a second I bought the wrong one or my glovebox was broken because it was too big and the glovebox wouldn’t close.

This only fits with the spine in and the zipper side out. No big deal of course, but just a heads up :)
