    Does anyone know exactly where the PX 2 is mounted on Enhanced Autopilot vehicles?

    Ok. I kind of anticipate your next question :)

    It's mounted right above the glove compartment, passenger side - both on X and S

    Do you happen to have any pictures of it?

    BTW: Someone else has stated, with certainty, that it is in trunk area.

    Perhaps someone with an AP2.0-car would be so kind as to ask their passenger to put their ears against the glove compartment area, checking for graphic card fan noise? :rolleyes: I'm quite certain it's above the glove compartment

    It would make more sense in the glove compartment, less wiring.

    Maybe I will be first to snag pictures if you are correct @lunitks ;)

    I thought it was liquid cooled.

    Please do. You need guidance on taking down glove comp.?

    Check out this video, from 21:40 - 25:15:


    I don't think you should expect the Drive PX 2 to look the same as in the promotional pictures / videos from Nvidia (transparent plexi glass enclosure etc.). It is most likely in a custom Tesla box, made to fit the mounting location
