    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    That makes sense. I ran into something similar as I went through my install where the system would beep and actuate the latch but nothing more. In my case, manually closing (or opening - I don't remember which now) the lid convinced the system that everything was OK and it cleared its fault...

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    Have you contacted EVOffer's tech help? I found them to be extremely helpful and very easy to work with. It may take a little while for them to respond initially as I'm not sure where exactly on the globe they are so there is likely a significant time difference but once they responded to me...

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    I thought the same thing when I was done but hadn't specifically looked at the movement before so I couldn't tell if it was different. That said, I washed the car over the weekend and didn't see any signs of water in the frunk so it appears to still be sealed.

    Install is done. Total time start to finish was probably about three hours but actual work time was probably under an hour. I had to stop a couple times to attend to other stuff and also to wait for them to respond to a couple questions. They were excellent to deal with and extremely helpful...

    One quick update - While I won't get to the install for at least another day or two, I did reach out to EVOffer with a couple questions I already had given the updated parts compared to what is shown on the install video - remember, I'm dealing with variant 1 for a pre-facelift car. They got...

    I will do my best to document the process but not sure if I'll be able to do a full video or not - don't want to make a 3 hour project into 5 hours to manage the camera. I will take pictures at least of any critical issues if they arise and post a summary once I'm done.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    They do for the newer variants but I'm dealing with a pre-facelift RWD car so the only guide is a video from 2020. And this kit has some significant changes/upgrades from what is shown in the video. The biggest difference is they appear to have changed the latch "motor" design from a simple but...

    Order received. Planning on installing it this weekend. I'll let everyone know how it goes.

    Power Frunk Group Buy - MS Refresh LR/Plaid

    I don't believe so. They have an excellent install video on Youtube (I'm pretty sure it was linked previously in this discussion) that covers everything. The original design did require accessing the 12V battery and adding a wire directly to the + terminal but even in that video they showed...

    mec0t0 - thanks for all your work getting this together! I'll be putting my order in as soon as I get home.

    The control to activate the frunk opening remains the same as it is programmed by Tesla. The power kit doesn't change when the signal can be received, only what happens upon receiving that signal. If you're really concerned, try opening your frunk now while driving.

    Paint colors

    If I ever had the money to do it, one of the chameleon paints would be my choice. They require an absolutely perfect body and are 3-4 times the cost of standard paint.

    Does that 12 include just members with the most recent MS or does it include those of us with older vehicles as well?

    How are we supposed to get est range @ 90% 100% etc. now?

    I believe my car is one of those where the charge port will open if you mess with charging from the app when it isn't plugged in. Anyone know if there's a way to prevent this? (Not too critical as I never think about setting the charge level other than when the car is plugged in, and usually...

    Any chance they would accept an order for one or two of the older versions to be included in the deal?
