    Captured photo shows what looks like the power trunk on the new Model 3 from the Fremont factory. You can see the close button and a power strut.

    Not too early to see but doesn’t seem like the most polished design.

    That gives me hope that retrofits may be possible.

    Good job, BUT you should have opened the frunk and removed to cover to see if the octovalve/heat pump is present.:eek::D:eek:

    oh yuck. I can’t get over the fact that some poor M3 owner is getting a mix of chrome and chrome delete. Who cares about the power trunk when you have THAT?!

    I assume you know that’s protective tape removed before delivery?

    The black trim around the rear window? No, I don’t, since a lot of the photos of model 3’s on car carriers don’t have any tape...

    When these cars are delivered the black trim is covered in white plastic with the the exception of the rear triangle window trim. That rear piece is not covered.

    :( I really wish I had this on mine more than I care to admit, if only because almost everything else on this car is future forward yet the last time I had such a “basic” operating trunk was about 14yrs ago.

    Edit: Also, my wife’s palm prints all over the trunk lid is a close 2nd reason why I wish I had this :D
