I wouldn’t and haven’t stuck mine anywhere where they’re visible - but really like the functionality and wouldn’t be without them now.

Glovebox hidden behind the screen.

Normal/chill toggle and the mirror tilt toggle hidden beneath the armrest handle

High beam hidden behind left wheel spoke (tend to change this to one of the various wiper options during wet spells)

Autopilot hidden behind right wheel spoke (find this much nicer than repeatedly double tapping the stalk after lane changes on motorways)

Chargeport button currently unfixed

OBD harness is by the by for me as would have almost certainly ended up with one for Scan My Tesla / Tes⸱Lax etc anyway just out of nerdiness. This single harness and adapter does that too.

Frunk opening by holding the driver’s door handle open for 3 seconds also gets used regularly.

I need to try the regen options again at some point. Didn’t instinctively get on with them when trying initially - think it was the thought of potentially having to needlessly induce brake wear, create brake dust etc - but also I think I was a bit dubious about messing with something quite so fundamental as how the car stops.

There is no regen settings on a Tesla. Plus the app allows you to use many more settings and really use your car like a pro which Elon would not allow.
All the boring arguments aside, this is the crux of it for me. A) they enable some stuff that otherwise simply isn’t possible B) They pretty well fix some of the annoying stuff which Tesla’s approach, I’m pretty sure most would agree, made less than ideal in practice (key one for me is probably the glove box, but also wiper speed/delay, and a quick toggle for chill mode).

Whether or not they are tat is obviously subjective - they feel pretty okay to use (not brilliant), but as I can’t even see mine they certainly don’t look like tat, and don’t make any difference at all to how minimalist the interior is.

They supposedly (though I’m yet to test) use some sort of sticker which means they can be more easily removed and re-stuck eleswhere - so that made me more willing to give them a go. I’d have been much more reluctant if it was 3M hi-bond like stuff that was tough to remove!
