    Has anyone noticed that, on sunny days, the dash material reflects a bright metallic mesh pattern into the lower portion of the windshield? I have upgraded sound, and I suspect that mesh hides a number of speakers. It is very annoying, as it's directly in my field of view during normal driving.

    @KaiserSoze I have noticed this too with the super sunny weather we've had the past week. If the sun hits the dash just right, it reflects that mesh-y pattern onto the windshield, which makes me think I am seeing fuzzy. I don't have the upgraded sound, so I don't think it is related to that.

    Tesla really should replace that material with something which is not reflective. A dash material's primary job, in my view, is to not reflect things into the driver's field of view.

    Just get some polarized sunglasses. That should fix most of the glare and reflection problems.
