Very nice, how difficult? Permanent?
I'm curious how that looks from the front passengers' viewpoint. Viewing more of the backside of the screen would be annoying to me.
I would love to know more about this. Like the poster above, I would like to see it from the passenger side but my initial impression is it looks great.
what angle did you get it to?
Pop open the bottom panel of the screen. There are two 10mm hex screw. Remove those and pull the screen out and up at ~30 degree from horizontal.
I am experimenting with a few prototype mounts. The one pictured is at 15 degree rotation. The next one, if I find time tomorrow, will be at 10 degree. Will report on the results and post more pictures then.
I like the look of that curious to see what the 10 would look like. Look forward to seeing it.
10 degree version.
From the driver headrest:
From the back seat:
From the front passenger headrest:
I would have figured it would be worse from the passenger side.
So does it help with the glare and problem reading the navigation directions many have complained about?
I am not sure if it is the glare, the distance or the rotation, but it is so much better reading the right side now.
Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
Love it. My (future) 3 will be a predominantly commuter car, with usually only me in it, so I don't feel the need to share the screen with the rest of the empty car. Never understood why they didn't build in some kind of minor angle or pivot to the display. Only reason I can think would be someday in the future when FSD is active and everyone's watching something on the screen rather than paying attention to the road. But that's (IMO) far off still.
I assume you 3D printed some kind of wedge spacer? Love this and that center console insert you created. Also, the wood panel and center console - are they matte or is it a brushed metal wrap?
Very interested in these. Potentially sell different angles, and maybe even a kit with 2 or 3 different options to find best individual preference!
This will be madly popular. I’m not sure I want to mess around with the mount myself, but would live to angle the screen towards the driver when I get my AWD M3 which I just ordered. Hopefully, some Southern California customizer will embrace this technique.
I actually wanted to tackle this myself. But my model 3 still in service for another few weeks, don’t mind getting it if someone did all the hard work?
Here is what the mount looks like
@chojn1 I have been following your projects from the beginning. I am going to do this on my car (if I can figure out your instructions). It just makes sense. You are a creative, frunking genius! Do you have a youtube channel, emailing list, or something else to follow you? I'm hooked! KUDOS!!
Very cool! Instructions? Do you plan to sell the mount you created?
Hi @Stellavator ,
It is really easy to do - about a 10 minute job with a 10 mm socket wrench and a screw driver.
Will post details when I am finished with the build.
The kids are starting school and they still have a long back log of current orders to fill, so I am not adding anything else on for a while.
