    Does anyone have a picture of the ambient lights in their FWD? I find mine very dim as if half of the led strip is dead. Will post a picture of mine when I have it back, it's in service right now for other issues. I'm going to ask tesla as well.

    Going to be hard to tell through a picture.

    I'd suggest checking someone else's model X at a Super Charger or Service Center.

    Ha ha that doesnt sound creepy at all.. I envision it like this... Hi Stranger.. Do you mind if I sit in your car with the lights out and take a look at your mood lighting.. Insert 70's style porno music for full effects.. Ha ha./..

    Or it rubs the lotion on its back or it gets the hose!!

    It is a good idea though. Just couldn't get that out of my mind and had to share..

    All the best..

    If the Screen setting is set to auto-adjust this also affects the brightness of the trim lights. If you turn that up to 100% does it make a difference?

    Tesla Owners are pretty accommodating for their brothers:p

    Better be careful with wording though.

    Front Doors are all okay. It's like the armrest is blocking some of the light. I'm supposed to pick the X up today so I'll post a picture later!

    Abstract Ocean doesn't have an upgrade solution for the ambient lighting in the FWD. But it's true, for the upgrades they do provide, they are much brighter.

    I took two pictures today of my doors. It's like the armrest is blocking a large part of the light coming from the strip. Should it look like this?

    Made me look. On the FWD Most of the light shines down next to the seat; on the front doors it is easier to see from the side. IMG_1138.JPG
