    I've done 5 Model S installs of Blackvue DR650S-2CH. Quite easy. Don't know where you would attach the 2 extra cameras; front and rear seems adequate for me.

    It's exactly as shown in

    CAD$90/hr. It took 3.5 hours. No exposed cables.

    The wait was excruciating but was totally worth it.

    So, wait - 4 channel? I assume you had 2 2 channel units as Blackvue doesn't sell any 4 channel units so far as I have found. That said, it sounds like a good setup.

    Based on the video, looks like he installed a second 2-CH camera setup. First set is Front + Back, second set is Driver Door + Passenger Door.

    This should be a factory option from manufacturers.

    I really want to get dash cams in my car but with the Autopilot 2 cameras and musk's comment on how they might make them useable to "record' and use as dash cams...I don't know if I want to add more.

    When did Musk indicate that the cameras might be accessible by the owner for such functionality?

    Not sure why you would put stock in that happening any time soon or at all. It was an off the cuff comment by him.
