    The thin line under the digits displaying curent MPH seems to indicate energy usage or replenishment.

    Yeah I noticed that as well... very streamlined approach to showing that data!

    So far everything looks very intuitive (easy). I think you are really going to find this UI interesting

    This is smart. I've noticed on Model S that t leads to a potential safety hazard. As you approach the car and the door handles self present anyone can get in.

    Though you reduce convenience of course it can be nice to disable features like that sometimes.

    Speaking of locks, does anyone have a clear picture of how to open the doors from the inside (i. e. what the interior latch to open the door looks like) as well as how to control the power windows?

    Trev discussed this. The door is literally a button on the grab handle. Works very well he said.

    On the windows, I think they are still actual switches (could be wrong). You never seem to get a clear picture of the door without something partially blocking it.

    On one of the recent videos (I forget which one) someone in the backseat asks someone in the passenger seat to roll up their front window. They do that without coming close to the UI screen, so the window switches are somewhere on the armrests.

    Hi yes window switches are in the armrests/door, not on screen. Door lock is button on grab handle, top interior. The Motor Trend review I think has a great interior shot of this button. Just press and the door unlocks and pops open a bit. I sat in the back seat during our ride and easy to open the door and roll window down/up. As per normal functions. Did not notice how far the window came down in the rear (all the way or 80%), sorry but I feel it is prob in the 80-90% range don't think it comes down 100%. There may be some other videos or mentions about this. Not an issue for me, my 2014 Nissan Sentra rear windows do not come all the way down either, about 90% down.

    I just saw Trevor's detailed debrief in another thread showing the door open button. Very slick.

    Is there a non-button, mechanical fallback for opening the door too?
    I vaguely remember someone mentioning something like that (button + a handle).

    Hi, we did not ask but believe it would be same as the Model S/X today - a cable pull behind the front and rear door speaker covers. The covers pop off easily then a cable is present where you pull on it to open the door manually.

    I have probably watched a dozen Model 3 ride-along videos, this one is by far the most extensive walkthrough of the display. Tons of little tidbits and settings to see as I pause it for each option.

    The rides may have been slow and short, but we have gleaned a TON of info from the mass collection of videos taken by all the wonderful Youtubers! Thanks to you all.

    Scroll Wheel Default operation tested.

    Default
    * left wheel = media control
    * right wheel = nothing in park..

    Decent early UI walkthrough.

    So i was right.

    Not customizable, people were reading too much into that review.
    And the UI is still very very undeveloped.

    Someone in the comments.. (yes i risked reading youtube comments) pointed out He didn't try holding down the button for 5 seconds .. which is how you 'configure' them on Model S.

    Also, seems i was right for pointing out no hardware windshield controls was a dumb decision - at least for now.
    Hopefully the unidentified sensor under the windshield really is a dedicated rain sensor, and wipers will get an Auto mode soon.
