    Looks like a great price. Should I also buy the power magic pro or is that not needed for a Tesla?

    You don't need one in a Tesla.

    I didn't get the Power Magic Pro. You don't need it with Tesla but if you do a lot of driving and would like to use it all the time you may want to get it to conserve power.

    Yes you need to sign up to see the price ($259). I bought two, one for my S and one for the Model 3 when it arrives.

    How is Power Magic Pro going to conserve power? All it does, prevents the 12 V battery from discharging below certain level, which is irrelevant with Tesla as the 12V battery will be automatically recharged by the main battery as needed.

    Just expect a really long ship time. I ordered on May 22, 2017 and I am still waiting for mine to ship.

    I'm waiting on that same order
    Originally supposed to ship appx 6-14, then updated to "by 6-27"
    So if you're willing to wait and also willing to deal direct with the manufacturer for returns, then you will save a $100 or so
    I'm beginning to wonder if it's worth it

    Are all of you planning to install the cams yourselves, or do you have fixed price installers on standby?

    I have a local installer who I use for things like this. He's very reasonably. He's a video of the audio system and sound deadener he installed on my Nissan Leaf (that I'm now selling as we have a second S on the way):

    Wow thats a set up; sounds great! 40 hours to install.......I had no idea these things got so complicated.
    Are you planning a similar set up in your new S? And whats in your old S?

    Yeah most of the time was for the sound deadener. He basically removed all of the seats, headliner, carpet, door panels, etc. before adding the dynamat. It's quieter than my S now!

    Currently we have a 2013 P85+. It has the Hi Fi sound option so I have left it stock. The CPO on order is a P85D with the base sound system. So I'll likely do the same kind of upgrade (I may even re-use the amp and sub if the buyer of my Leaf wants a discount).

    Here's the for sale listing of my Leaf if anyone is interested:

    Guess who's back, back again, Massdrop's back, back again. I let the last one pass me by, not doing the same for this one, picked up 2 so the wife won't be jealous when we get her 3

    I ordered two of these the first round. Per shipping information, they are supposed to arrive 7/25/2017.

    I think this is selling on Amazon for a little over $400, so the MassDrop is a significant savings.

    Good luck with Round 2!

    Just a quick question, but why do people want to put these dash cams in their Tesla? Are you able to see the cams video live on the Tesla screen or something?

    Why would you need to see directly what's in front of you, on the screen? :)

    Here's why I have a dashcam in every car we own:



    Without dashcam footage, that woman and her insurance company would have been totally screwed.

    There are other reasons, too.
