    Agreed, very nice teardown, and very thorough. If you make more videos, try to get a better mic or have the guys wearing mics...it's very hard to hear them at times. Either way, I'll be looking at this. Can you speak to the compatibility with the refreshed S?

    Thanks! Very nice comprehensive tear down!
    Are you guys planning a head unit amp replacement as well?
    Being that you've noted the pinouts, I hope that you are!

    I was very happy to see this video as it takes what I already new and have done several steps further. Thanks for the very valuable info guys!

    We already know the pin-outs and how it could be done. Just don't know how many people could do that without professional installer's help.

    Please check www.LightHarmonic.com/Tesla for more details.

    Answer the PM question here: With the new 2016 Tesla model S with center console. The majority of process is the same.
    But there will be few extra steps there.
