There's a video on youtube about this - get underneath the screen, remove a panel, loosen two bolts, it'll move a little and you can rotate it slightly towards the driver. Not as much as in that (presumably) photoshopped picture though.

i have no doubt its not photoshopped. given his 3d expertise you could definitely print some parts to enable you to do this - would be my guess.

Pop open the bottom panel of the screen. There are two 10mm hex screw. Remove those and pull the screen out and up at ~30 degree from horizontal.

I am experimenting with a few prototype mounts. The one pictured is at 15 degree rotation. The next one, if I find time tomorrow, will be 10 degree. Will report on the results and post more pictures then.

Wouldn’t put it past Tesla to void any computer warranties because of this. At least it’s easy enough to undo. ;)

10 degree version from the back seat:

From the driver headrest:

From the front passenger headrest:

Ergonomically, the 15 degree version is more correct for the driver.
Aesthetically, the 10 degree version is more subtle and less disruptive to the original design.
I do like them both.
