    My dogs keep opening the windows!

    Thanks for all the good advice. I don't tweet; can I assume that Tesla engineering monitors these posts?

    My dogs keep opening the windows!

    I love Dog Mode, but often return from a short shopping stop to find the windows of my M3 rolled down! So far, the dogs haven't decided to jump out the window but it's very disconcerting. The window switches are on the arm rest and designed so a simple downward press opens the windows. They are...

    On amazon, a Kingston 16 GB drive is about $5. This all you need unless you’re into saving trips frequently.

    The four cameras saved me $1000 and my driving record...

    I bet that the insurance claims for National as well as other rental companies are handled on a contract basis. They are probably paid based on how low they keep the costs to the rental company. My dealings with a normal claim adjuster for the other guy were quite reputable. Since I had decent...

    The four cameras saved me $1000 and my driving record...

    Now that there are four cameras you need a fast USB memory. I had to upgrade from my original cheap (leftover from a previous use) drive. But you don’t need a huge drive as the whole file of recent videos was about 7 GB. I bought a Kingston Digital. $20 for 128 GB (overkill on the size) Note...

    The four cameras saved me $1000 and my driving record...

    I’d agree with you if the frame was bent, but a decent body shop can repair this sort of damage without affecting the long-term utility of the vehicle. Although it was annoying that the other guy tried to weasel out of responsibility, he wasn’t trying to hit me. S**t happens and trying to make...

    The four cameras saved me $1000 and my driving record...

    (From OP) Even if we had stopped, the other driver had already pulled back into his original lane (as I would have done if I had hit him). So, there was no good reason to stop there. If the police came, they wouldn’t have anything to see and would have been pissed to deal with a huge traffic...

    The four cameras saved me $1000 and my driving record...

    (From OP) Thanks for all the good words. His insurance adjuster and I had a good laugh about his claim that I hit him. I didn’t even notice that he hit me twice. It was really a scraping sort of impact; nothing that would have injured anyone. 75% of the traffic turns left to go to the highway...

    The four cameras saved me $1000 and my driving record...

    I had an accident in the two-lane exit road from a parking lot. A car in the left lane tried to get around traffic by using the right lane, which I already occupied. His right front impacted my left rear. The other driver told his insurance company that I turned into him. There were no...
