My Tesla Advisor said that the Model 3 has an OBD port. Has anyone connected a ScanGauge, OBD Link, or other type of code reader? Obviously, there won't be any ICE-specific info like cylinder misfire, fuel pressure, MAP, etc. What parameters are available to view and can it reset codes? Is it located such that you could add a display in the blank area in front of the steering wheel?

It actually doesn't have a standard OBDii port. You can get an adaptor for the data port that's in the back seat underneath the cover of the center console, but it doesn't work the same as most OBDii ports, so you're typical code readers and such probably aren't going to work.
