    I had a Blackvue DR650S-2CH installed in my AP2 2017 Model X. I wanted all the wires hidden in the center windshield conduit, but the installer said it can't be moved on new ModelX's and just used some cable clips to glue it to the windshield. From the driver's side it's harder to see but from the passenger's side, it's ugly as sin. Is there a better solution?

    I agree it's hard and a time-consuming pain to remove the conduit, but I find it hard to believe that it can't be removed. To be fair, I haven't inspected an AP2 conduit.

    Another option is to try to acquire a 2nd conduit from Tesla and mount it parallel to the first conduit. Or you could buy one of those beige wire conduits, spray-paint it black and use that instead.

    I have it on my new and used MX. The installer I used got the wires into the conduit with no issues.
