    I dropped my car off at the body shop to replace the front bumper. They needed me to take the car off of valet mode to be able to access the frunk. I'd prefer to keep the car in valet mode. Is there a way to keep the power and speed limited, while still giving them access to the frunk? I guess I could tell them to pull the emergency release.

    Other ideas?

    Disable if for a short, agreed upon period of time and then turn it back on? Or will they have to open and close it regularly?

    They said they will need to open and close it frequently. Would be a nice feature to be able to unlock frunk with valet mode. I don't need to lock the frunk, since we already know the frunk is the most insecure portion of the whole car.
