Thanks for this! It looks like your install is exactly what I hoped for mine. I assume the lens is centered on the plastic trim. I might ask them to move it slightly higher but on the other hand we need a gap for the plastic trim to still be removable.
I appreciate you sharing!
I don't understand why they'd suggest this spot in the install instructions:
And advertise this one, which is so much nicer and probably barely even visible from the driver's seat:
I will definitely report back. I plan to put blue tape where I want it and discuss it with them fully before...
All the install pics I've seen have it in weird, obtrusive spots. Even the installation manual has it in a weird obtrusive spot.
I hope they will put it where I want, as depicted in that photo. It will be mostly out of my sight, centered on the car, and looking decent.
You're wrong. The green lines are LKA (lane keep assist.). The green wheel is ALK.
LKA - Lane Keep Assist - Vibrations when you deviate from the lane, slight steering nudges but not auto sterring
ALK - Active Lane Keeping - Auto steering, but only if it can see the lines and it dangerously...
I think you're confusing Innodrive (speed changes) with ALK (auto-steering.)
For me ALK doesn't have anything to do with the car in front of me, it has to do with the ability to see line markers on the lane. If they are absent or badly worn, ALK silently disengages.
In November I wanted to place an order for a Carmine Red 4S and was told it would be 12-18 months. I instead bought a GTS from another dealer that was on the lot.
This week I checked my original dealer and they have several Taycans in stock including...a Carmine 4S.
I guess someone else...
So why aren't people installing the OEM camera in this location? This looks low enough to be mostly obscured from the driver's view. I think it looks kinda out of place on the right side high or the left side high.
I'm going with this camera after getting a FitcamX that didn't work, and...
The camera itself is MUCH more cooperative. I had to remove it once already to reroute the wire, and it went off/on quite easily. But that trim piece really fought for dear life.
By the end I decided I didn't care if I broke it and went full Hulk on it. That's what finally got it to move.
