Anybody wished the third brake lights extend like that of the Model S?

    For some reason, I like the Model S's long third brake light that extend throughout entire rear. When I first saw Model S in 2012 while driving on the highway, the long strip of the brake light caught my attention.

    I thought it would look cooler if the Model X also extended to the end of the spoiler or position it just like Model S at the top of the hatchback glass.

    It looks also weird how the third brake lights in the Model X shows on the dashboard. Unlike the Model S, it looks awkwardly thick. :D

    Did anyone think similar?

    I think that would be great.

    I completely agree. Love the full length brake light.
    But no doubt there are some parts that are more "off the shelf" than others in order to keep costs down.

    That's what I felt.

    Also maybe I am guessing there is an engineering challenge with full length brake light on that spoiler maybe.

    I like the lighted T brake light. I'm still waiting for evanex to make it available.
