Is it just me, or do the brake lights look really weak? As in, not safe....
Now Elon is going to have send out tweets reminding people that the 3 is not as good as the X.
Those brake lights...so small.
So size does matter?
The X is very similar with a smaller brake light surface. It seems to be a trend. There is a particular Lexus SUV on the roads now with brake lights that feel like you're looking at a laser pointer.
That's legitimately terrible.
This would be more than fine for me. It would also eliminate the stupidity that is the brake/turn signal combo. The brake light on the trunk lid would remain on while the brake/turn signal combo light on the outer body of the car could flash. It looks like there is already a light there.
I believe I colored over the reverse lights. But I think having them switch back to white (Idk jack about lights but people said Tesla can control the colors of the lights via software?) when in reverse and having the "small" brake light only would be acceptable in those conditions, given that we know white can only be reverse.
It's how you use it...
I wish the outer segment would light up brighter (during braking like Model S) and the inner segment would flash amber when signalling (Model X and European S have amber signals.)
^^^ Wish-list Mock-up ^^^
Model S brake lights:
( On European Model S that inner c flashes amber when signalling )
The Model S CHMSL (center high mounted stop light) is also much bigger.
It looks to me like the 3 brake light is rather dim when viewed from the side, whereas the S makes a wider spread of light.
(The 3 LED is like a "beam" pointed straight backwards)
Yes they are small, but the high mount is bigger than on a pickup truck
I believe on the main TMC forum list it should be possible for moderators to mark entire forums with an "Officially run out of things to talk about" icon.
Brake lights in motion:
I dont care. Not like im going to be looking at the brake lights when driving around
They're not for your aesthetic pleasure.
Maybe that'd be the best option. Pretty much anything would be an improvement.

The lights look bright though. They look brighter that that black car in front.
It kind of is. I want it to look nice. It looks nice.
