    I wasn't there when he pulled in but the dash cam captured it. When I came back he had it all covered and would not let anyone see it.

    I like the aero wheels a lot.

    He was not supposed to say anything about the car and I can only imagine how annoying it must be being asked a million questions where ever he is so I didn't push.

    Feel free to share the video as long as you give me credit.

    Why do so many Model 3's seen have the windows open:confused:?
    I hope they aren't having a problem with the new ventilation :(

    Don't need AC in the mountains, It's about 70 during the day and the fresh mountain air is nice.

    I'm assuming from this video and your description that you have a dashcam that runs all the time. If that's true, do you not have any concern about constantly drawing the 12V power even if the car sits unused for several days?

    As a reservation holder in Denver who is seeing all of these RCs show up in other states, I wondered whether one might turn up in Colorado sometime before the final release. See this really has me excited. Thanks!

    **gets in car to go hang out at Supercharger station** jk

    I have the same thing running for about a year now. Unnoticeable in every way.

    That dude has a hell of a lot more confidence in reverse than I do. I'll need to get some practice before I take delivery of a Model 3.

    I say the next person who speaks with one of the drivers should simply be blunt, ask what's up with the open windows, and call them out directly. Ask if the AC works or not. Their face should give away the answer immediately if they don't verbally confirm.

    Huh, I figured for $35k only the X and S would have a reverse gear. Maybe with the 3 it comes with the tech package or something. I wasn't too keen to hop out and push anyway.

    Has anybody noticed the person's shoulder moving (ie cranking) when the windows go up and down?

    Where were these photos taken? I have been to all the Superchargers in Colorado, except for Trinidad, but the photos only of Trinidad don't look like that....

    Thanks Erik

    Saw one in Colorado

    Silverthorne? Or maybe that's an additional sighting in Colorado of the same car and not the same location.

    Maybe he meant pix of the same car (seen in the previous video) but now it is somewhere else.

    What are they wanting to hide this late in the game? We've already seen recent interior photos from California. Something must be new here.
