    Thanks the cam seems to integrate well with rear view mirror assembly without any cable mess. Can you please tell me where to buy? Thanks.

    The video looks like a Model X to me.

    Not the car, but the dashcam. I have seen similar dashcams like that for the S but not the X

    Brand, specs, price? Nice easy installation, but I wouldn't trust a Chinese dash cam.

    i would mainly use dashcams for when my car is hit while being parked, this camera won't do the job.

    Is it possible to change the language to English and/or turn off the voice notifications?

    I wonder if that will also work on a AP2 car.

    We'd have to see one installed, but the housing seems to be the same size on all Xs including the AP2 cars - a lot of it is just blanked off on older Xs. I see no reason to expect the exact shape of the lower housing to change since the new ones appear to be the same size.

    As another poster wrote above, I'd really like to see the voice silenced and I'd like to have motion based recording while parked - but I love how neatly integrated this camera is.

    Really intriguing. On the one hand the easy self-installation adds value over having to pay an installer or tear your car apart yourself. The lack of a rear view camera is a negative. Reliability certainly is a concern for a direct from China product, what sort of customer support do you get it it doesn't work, etc. I think if this was $225 I'd buy in a heart beat, if it had an easy to add rear view camera as well I'd pay the list price....

    And knowing my impulsive buying habits, I may end up buying it anyway once a few reviews and sample images are posted.
