    Tesla should offer this as part of a new optional upgrade feature.

    No. Open only
    Anyway, if you have an Apple Watch you could use Siri to open & close with the appropriate app

    For me I hardly never use my fronk unless Im going on a long trip and need the space. But the trunk yes i will be doing it one day and that Idea of using my apple phone to open the trunk appeals to me.

    I think it's the OEM mfr. Guangzhou Hansshow Tech.. If you scroll thru, you'll see it says 83 suppliers now offer this product. TeslaOffer is one of them. If they buy in bulk, they can get it for $360, and then sell it on for $475. Decent profit.

    I wonder if they’re the manufacturer for all of Tesla Offer’s automatic electrical products

    I misread the title as "TeslaOtter". I may be developing some vision problems from acceleration forces.

    I see the power liftgate for $300. Not sure how much shopping is but that's a good amount of savings. I'm just worried purchasing from Alibaba vs TeslaOffer.

    Everyone...be careful about the powered trunk.

    Remember: Its can bus driven.

    If Tesla changes its CAN bus addressing then you would need someone that knows your Powered Trunk Command Module to send you an update.

    In other words....buy the unit for $300 ( hardware only ), with no support? I'm not sure that's a bargain.

    He's saying for the trunk, yes. You really need the support from TeslaOffer (or someone else). The unit uses firmware on a SD card that might need to be updated from time to time.

    The powered frunk is less complicated and probably doesn't require the same level of support.

    Are you sure you aren't looking at the Power Trunk price?

    Need a "just get it over with" option. No more nickel and dime'ing. No more budget balancing acts. No sleepless nights worrying about the paint swirls. For the price of a low end model Bentley Mulsanne you get a red Performance Model 3 Tesla, precision fitted in Grandma's Couch Plastic, slathered in ceramic, and every conceivable gizmo that has or will come out for it over ... say the next year. All the carbon console covers, the coming fashionable 2020 plastic SUV-style hog nose retrofit, all the chrome delete vinyl, several little door opening decals, 2 rolls of DIY Window tint, the little bicycle wheel child tent trailer, and of course both Frunk and Trunk Chinese electric openers. EVERYTHING. You're done! The works.

    IMHO...yes.

    They are the only ones I know supporting their product.

    My "just get it over with" option may not be your "just get it over with option".


    Besides....its "fun" getting it over with myself.

    Correct, the powered frunk does not utilize CAN bus for operation. Its just a substitute for what is already there.
