    Could have been mine. (or maybe not - there are 2 custom installs underway)

    Both are newer Alpine units - so pretty familiar to Tesla. Mine is the INE-S920HD while the other one is the INA-W910. I'll let everyone know how it turns out soon.

    Hadn't heard of the INE-S920HD before. Actually sounds decent from the few reviews I saw.

    Have you gotten your tesla back with the INE-S920HD? Review please?

    From the Alpine website it looks like the INE-S920HD and INE-Z928HD have the new software, while the INA-W910 is on an older version. The 920 has physical knobs & buttons and a 6.1" screen. The 928 looks similar but with no physical controls and a 8" screen, which unfortunately is a wasted opportunity since the resolution is the same as the 920 (800x480).

    The INE-S920HD looks like the best option by the specs. Love to see a review.

    Actually Crutchfiled has it on it's website and they give the unit quite high reviews. Alpine INE-S920HD Navigation receiver at Crutchfield.com
    . I have used Crutchfiled several times and have found them to be quite good.

    Can anyone who has swapped out the head unit confirm how Tesla handled it? Were they happy to put in whatever unit the owner wanted?

    That Parrot Asteroid 2U looks like a really nice base for some EV-specific extensions.

    Yes. I'll do a review with pictures next week - but mini-review: It turned out excellent.

    The INE-Z928HD is really a special form factor for pickup trucks and full-size SUVs.

    Thanks. Can you comment on the user interface and the Nav as well? I'll probably stick with the current one for now but nice to know what is out there.

    No full review yet - but here are some photos.

    I am very happy with the sound - due mostly to new Focal speakers.

    As far as UI - it is not bad. I still don't have the phone UI fully working but calls come in. Pandora works over BT with a full UI. Ipod works fine but I'm not yet sure if power is maintained when the car is off or if the iPod is powered down when you turn off the car. Have not tried a CD or DVD.

    Nice!

    Are those the Focal IS 130s? And did you get coaxial speakers for the rears? I'm tempted to do the same.
