    My Door Handles are Invisible In the Dark!

    I Love the blacked out look of the car, I love the deep blue color of the car.... but as the days get shorter and the weather colder, I realize that finding the door handles is going to be a challenge, especially with gloves on! I also appreciate living and recreating in areas with little light...

    Model S Vanity Mirror Lighting Upgrade

    Hi All, No vanity mirror light for Model S? This is a pretty minor inconvenience but still a surprising one given the complexity of these cars. Has anyone looked into upgrading/modifying these mirrors to include a light? I'm imagining a battery powered (or solar-charged) LED as the hassle to...

    Dome light

    There is a five-push button/light dome light on the 2020 model X. Three push button/lights point aft, and two point at the front seats. When you press any of the 3 rear light buttons, the lights illuminate. Pressing the front ones do nothing, although the front lights can be turned on via the...

    Lighting upgrade needed: AO vs. Taptes?

    Now that the daylight is starting to wane a bit, it’s becoming more obvious that even with the premium upgrade package, the model S lighting leaves a lot to be desired. I can barely see my kids in their rear-facing seats when it’s dark. It’s clear that I’m going to need some brighter lights...

    A little interior lighting mod

    Hey everyone!! a few months ago, I picked up my P85D, and like many owners here, I feel like for such a high tech, and innovative car, the interior is a little underwhelming. I know minimalism is key for the design, but a piece of me just wanted a little tiny bit of flair to give it a little...

    Custom Ambient Lighting Project

    Hi all, I just dropped off my Model 3 Performance to get some custom interior lighting. I thought I was a genious at designing a custom fiber optic lighting system but literally in the last day someone posted a video that is exactly what I am doing in my Model 3. Same product and the same...

    Ambient lighting in the Model S

    Hi all, I am still waiting for my new Model S to arrive and I have a question about ambient lighting I haven't been able to resolve through Google. I'm hoping some existing owners can help to set my expectations correctly. My understanding is that the new cars come with ambient lighting. But...

    MVPA confusion. No premium upgrade package?

    So I'm taking delivery, tomorrow, of an Inventory S 75D produced October 22nd 2018, VIN 286229. I actually selected this one because I -wanted- the Sunroof, which It has, and I prefer the Textile seats vs the 'vegan leather'. However, I was under the impression that since about June or July...

    Options package - change spotting

    Fresh off the truck in Dublin today...New MS 100D's with refreshed rear seat had this funny line item on the window sticker: "Premium interior and lighting" for $5000. So looks like they will be adding $1700 to the leather package. Just another reason to get the textile.

    Plastic Accelerator Pedal of Tesla

    Since I've been driving a Tesla, I noticed something "odd" feeling about the accelerator pedal. I couldn't quite put my finger on it.. Was it the location, the height, way it's located close to the carpet side wall? The other day, I reached down and "touched" the accelelerator pedal, and...

    Any non-LED illumination?

    On current production cars with PUP, is there any non-LED illumination left? From what I can tell on my MS, anything that generates light appears to be LED now.

    My Model S 90D Cabin Lighting Upgrade

    Overview: As others have observed, the interior lighting is really dim. It’s pleasant “ambient/mood lighting” but falls short on practical lighting to actually see stuff in the dark. My December 2016 MS has the Premium Upgrades Package. This includes thirteen 200 milliwatt cool white LED...

    Tesla Model S 90D first week (Dec. 18-25, 2016) impressions (a long post)

    Forward: I was expecting a lot from the car and have not been disappointed. I’ve been lusting after one since I saw an early prototype in Menlo Park. What follows are stream of consciousness thoughts (in no particular order). Pleasant surprises: Automatic location-based garage door open and...

    Any way to force the floor lighting to stay on?

    I was doing a bit of cleaning in my Model S yesterday, using a portable vacuum cleaner to clean up sand and salt from the driver's side floor. The car was in a garage with limited lighting. After a short time (a minute or two? not sure) the floor lighting shut off and I could no longer see...

    DIY trunk lighting

    Here is my version of a decent trunk light. I first tried some motion sensor lights that I attached to the sides, but I had to swap out those batteries every few days. So I finally took the little LED light that is in there and attached a second one to it. I found a nice looking one on Amazon...
