Nothing to do with performance.
Just quality of life upgrades.

1. Phone mount, dock/charger

This one took me the longest and cost me the most.
I bought a 3D scanner, printer, and multiple parts to try.
Now I am happy with the result. Looks super clean, stable, and functional.
Retrospect, I should have bought the commercially available phone mount and it would have been cheaper.

But, I am happy with the result. All iris buttons are accessible with the phone in place.

2. Radar detector mount

Also, 3D printed part.
No moving part. It gets the detector almost touching the window.
Minimal bulk to minimize visibility obstruction. Doesn't interfere with the visor.
Already went through a couple of revisions.
Still quite happy with it.

3. Rearview mirror

As you already know from my last post.
Finally able to get rid of the garage door clicker and community gate clicker.
Decent size mirror so visibility is quite good.

I know these cars are focused on driving, but a little bit of creature comfort still can't hurt.
One may argue I am adding weight to the car, spoiling the performance. I'll just skip lunch to make it up for it.
I think I am done with this kind of project for a while.

amazing job congrats! You should sell it or share your 3d model so others could benefit from your hard work. Kudos!
