My wife and I just got back from shopping. We went past a VW on display(didn't take note on the model), the interior was a throwback from 1990.

A few minutes later, downstairs was a red Model Y on display. My wife…has seen the Model Y before, but this time I could see her eyes pop out. “Buy It”, she said.

Nahh, we are going overseas next year, we will be back for the CT... we will get the Y later.

Anyway, no better way to assess than to compare in real life

The size of the windshield may be a benefit: The resulting steep angle should reduce the force of impact a bit and statistically speaking reduce the number of cracked windows but as you said, those that do crack will make you pay dearly. If nothing else that BAW should scare away any flying rocks coming at you.

The FSD cameras hone in on incoming stuff and it's 'BATTER-UP' with the BAW(!)

I’m still confused by the blank interior point

Gotta love how they try to cover-up the white door/dash trim pieces draping
black material. Coulda, woulda, shoulda fooled me(!)

I just noticed the BAW on this. Didn’t know it was retractable. I picked up the image from Google images so I have no idea how old it is. The mirror tells me it is not the latest. Lack of door handle tells me it is not the earliest. Any ideas if final BAW is retractable?

The pic above, the BAW is thicker perhaps it has been retracted, I have brought this up before, not sure.

This one below, I saved date stamped may 23, looks 2 pieces. The first portion seems to be the same length.

not sure about retractable, etc

but at some point in earlier threads with earlier protos, I believe there was a design that used two normal sized wipers, overlapping?

the newer protos appear to instead have one large single blade

True... But not in Europe. 😬

Here I thought the swallows were busy terraforming our planet. But now you tell me they are our colonial masters? Who knew!?!?!

I happen to have the video(s) from that sighting in their raw 4K files! Any specific part you want me to show you?

"bro why secretive, post them" per the guy that shot them, I am not permitted to post unless I can blur the drivers face. You can see the passenger blocking his face. These guys don't want their faces online. Thanks for understand CTOC.

I will however crop screenshot whatever you want to see!

Given the interest in the BAW, one day someone will give us the development rundown.

Once the CT ships and we see all the actual details and tech wizardry, will anyone even care about the BAW any more. Seems like it's the star of the show right now because we have no other stars.

But I would like to hear the story behind the BAW.
