    After watching some video of people keying Teslas, I think I might apply some small decals like this on the backseat windows:

    It's only a deterrent if the vandals know about it. Anyone done that?

    I like the idea. Problem is they will look ugly on a nice shiny car.

    personally i'd rather be able to change the nerdy HAL3000 screen from the big red eye to something silly like a directional arrow or a video feed of the person.

    We have the exact same stickers on our mailboxes. You can spot them from pretty far away. So it is possible that your car was not a target but the guy saw the sticker and accepted the challenge and pull down his hoodie and key your car just to prove a point.

    Right. I worry that the snarky, "Smile. You're on Camera" could trigger someone.

    I ordered some of these (4" x 2.5").

    You'd assume that the idiots can read.
    You'd assume that they could comprehend what they read.
    You'd assume that they even care.
    You'd assume that they wouldn't key your car just to get on TV!

    Those are much better, thanks for the tip. I'll mail the above four stickers to the first person (in the US) who dares to send me his/her snail mail address. I'll post here once they are taken.

    Looks good, but I think they might be better in the back small triangle windows imo.

    Agreed, but I want the most noticeable position.

    I mentioned these awhile ago and still like them the best, from TheDashCamStore:

    Warning Sticker | Audio and Video Recording In Progress | Transparent

    says what needs to be said and still in an elegant manner to compliment our cars. While TeslaCam does not record sound (at least not now), do not see it as being a problem mentioning audio and sound is recorded. And if you decide to add a tradition dashcam (as some have) it would have you covered.
