    We've got an interesting innovation in our development of a lighted T for the Model S and facelift Model S. Using a new film developed by 3M they'll both be front lit. The LEDs will be front facing, positioned under a film on the surface of the T and arch that's chrome when unlit, but lets through the light when the LEDs are turned on, and diffuses it as well. The molds have been designed so we're in a position to begin production as soon as a few key details have been resolved. The Ts will be sold via Evannex when they're ready.

    The photo below show a very crude approximation of the effect.

    Sorry the editing time limit expired before I could post them. Making them front lit will eliminate all of the annoying reflections that occur when they're side lit.

    Here they are:
