    I am sure quite a few people reading this might imagine you were driving this commando or just in underwear....

    I hope you were wearing something! Is it possible to turn off the display of the center screen? I would think having a screen that big blazing away at night would be distracting.

    You better plug in the car before this post gets flooded with 50 replies.

    You foolish tool of the oil industry! How dare you blatantly attempt to deceive the public about this miracle car's amazing abilities by running it uphill and decreasing the range below the ideal, then having the audacity to declare that "real world"? Such blasphemy against the great Prophet Elon shall not be tolerated! Someone needs to show you how to drive the car. If you were a real owner you'd only run it downhill to achieve the maximum possible range. Doing anything but that is clearly a deliberate attempt to put the company out of business through pure spite.

    throwback, I believe the center screen goes into "night mode" and is less distracting or not distracting at all. Travis, I would prefer driving, instead of watching television, too!

    In addition to the aforementioned "night mode", you can crank down the brightness to a level you find acceptable.

    As the screen is the control center for the car, I don't believe you can turn it completely off, however.
