    Is the glass distortion still a problem for ‘24 model

    I am a long time owner of a M3P. Love the car, but I want something more reasonable for long trips and going up to the snow. I sat in a 23’ Model S today, and noticed some minor distortion in the driver side window. Doing a bit of searching, it looks like the ‘21 refresh may have brought with it...

    HW4 auto wipers seem drastically improved

    After a few days of no stop rain in a new Model S with HW4, it seems the auto wiper behavior has been significantly improved from what I’m used to in 2.5 and dare I say on par with my 2016 MS with an actual rain sensor with the mobile eye suite. This was an improvement I wasn’t expecting and a...

    The heating elements in the windshield stops 3 inches away from the right side wiper tip. Exactly the part of the wiper that's cleaning the camera...

    We are looking for a windshield sun shade for our Model Y. It appears from product listings on Amazon that the shades for a Model 3 also fit a Model Y. Is that to be believed or, to ensure a good fit, should I be seeking a product that is specific to the Model Y?
