    I noticed these two great videos on Youtube. Just thought that they are too good not to share.


    Walk-through of interiors. Probably the best ones from Youtube so far.



    Walk-through of screen controls

    ugh, the more i see that interior the more I dislike it, hope a dark headlining is an option. Still wondering what the non PUP interior is going to be like without the glass roof and the basic centre console without the phone docking tray.
    Seats look fine, but that wood trim is getting wrapped or replaced. That touchscreen better be intuitive as all heck, i may not like 1000 buttons and knobs, but i've never meet a button or touch sensitive volume control that i've liked in a car, where as a volume knob is simple and reliable, and your fingers don't tend to slide off if you hit a bump while driving on a real world road. Hopefullt the steering wheel rollers can be used as volume control amongst other functions and work intuitively.

    At least we know that the boot has a release lever/button in the center on the outside (some were wondering if it was App /center scren only)

    Go try the steering wheel roller in an S- about as easy and the least distracting as it gets!

    Also noticed the sunvisors in the model 3 look about as useful as windows in a submarine if you are a shorty like me.

    WOW! The audio system sounds like it'll be great.

    Haha if you think those are rubbish, try a Model S. I don't know why it even has them, they're so bad.

    Finally, an explanation / demonstration of features and functionality. The build quality appears quite solid and BMW, Mercedes, and Audi should be concerned. Audi may lose my A5 Sportback purchase if the Model 3 delivers on the ride and handling.

    I no longer have doubts about the premium audio. It sounds incredible.

    Still not a fan of the single screen. A lot of relearning to perform basic functions (i.e. HVAC air flow redirection, changing media - no FM?, etc.).

    Like the dock for phone in the console

    No FM/AM radio, no streaming music via Bluetooth (so no AA/Carplay either). Uhhh o_O

    Seems like a loosening of NDA? Impending sales to public?

    Very useful videos. Thanks.
    Takeaway:
    1. Very nice seats, very nice cabin feel. Build quality looks quite good.
    2. Way too much head-down time required from the driver to do the simplest things (do I really want to summon a wiper icon, identify it, press a touch-sensitive screen on a bumpy road, all just to swipe one bug off the windshield?).
    The more I see of the interior, the less objectionable I find the parts aimed at passengers, and the more objectionable I find the parts aimed at the driver.
    Maybe turning us all into passengers is part of Secret Master Plan #3?

    Here's a stalk-mounted wiper control. What's the control logic here? Operate the stalk, and the menu pops up and you reach over and run them from the touch screen? Or are there two ways (for some bizarre reason) to turn on the wipers?

    I believe the stalk on the left behind the steering wheel also controls the wipers.

    I like what I see. I do agree that's too much head-down time initially but once we get used to the touchscreen and know where all the controls are, that shouldn't be too big of a problem.

    I don't see an overhead sunglasses holder though. :(

    Short press for single swipe. Long press for spray and wipe.

    No automatic wipers, lights?
    No streaming music with bluetooth?
    Use of cheap looking plastic (around the windowbuttons)
    The seats are to flat, not sporty ath all.
    This isnt germain bild like by a long shot!

    OK, so for a single swipe the driver will use the stalk. For continuous you're over playing with the screen.
    Sound right? I mean, "correct"?

    For now, yes. Once they figure out automatic wipers, then it conceptually becomes moot.

    i hope they have XM and FM radio available. If you don't get cell service you could be out of luck.
