    Ordered MY LR but wanting MYP

    If you factor in resale value, the cost difference b/w a Model Y LR and Model Y Performance is practically nill. Therefore, if you can stomach the extra payments then it's a no-brainer to go with the Performance. Swap out 21"s for 19" and not only will you get similar range as LR but your...

    Wiki Model Y 19" vs 20" Decision Guide

    So you're going a bit smaller, I take it? Ride quality with the 255/50/19 is surprisingly very similar to the 275/35/21. They even perform as well as the stock tires. Biggest difference is that i am no longer worries about messing up my rims by going over potholes. LOL.

    Wiki Model Y 19" vs 20" Decision Guide

    With stock rims, 255/45/20 would fit according to my tire shop. So you should be good to go! What tires are you planning on buying? In hindsight, I should have gone ahead with 265/45/20 but I wanted even more of a sidewall.

    Model Y Range LR Vs Performance

    Well said. But money is always a factor: $10K is a fairly large sum even if you're financially well off. $10K invested in brain-dead low-cost index funds will yield 7% average return over the long run. So if money is a concern, getting LR and then adding the boost is the way to go.

    Wiki Model Y 19" vs 20" Decision Guide

    I actually went ahead with 255/50/19 tires with Replika R241 rims. They do fit, but they're a tad bit longer than stock tires.

    2020 Model Y Performance (barely used) or 2021 Model Y LR AWD (New)

    Hi srlawren, Yes, I did go ahead with the 2020 Model Y Performance. It is actually a "new" vehicle but it was a demo with 50 kms. It ended up with $9K+ discount so it was a no-brainer. You point out some great points, but resale wise, 2020 Model YP would bring in more value in 2 years than a...

    Range Increase & Performance Increase

    My VIN is 42,xxx with Sep '20 build date, and it came with 82 kWh battery (MY Performance).

    Would you still buy a Model Y now if you could do it again?

    While I would agree with you and want what you wrote, think about it from Tesla's point: batteries is the constraint. Therefore, why would they give out more battery than is required? They'd leave the 400+ mile range for the S Plaid+ and possibly the X Plaid+. I don't believe that 400+ mile...

    Would you still buy a Model Y now if you could do it again?

    Yeah, that's what I'm suspecting as well. They will likely increase the range marginally but will put less battery. BUT: less battery = less weight which means better performance and range (theoretically). It'd be interesting to see regardless.

    MY 2021 tire options

    How about Michelin CrossClimate 2 in 245/45/20 size? You'll have more sidewall but less width.

    Help Me Decide Between Long Range and Performance

    Tesla is so far ahead (aka fast) from 0 - 60 that it still wins the overall quarter-mile race until 120 mph despite the other vehicles being much quicker than Tesla from 60 to 120 mph. As @holmgang had stated, Tesla Model 3 P is nowhere near as fast from 60 to 120 mph as other 400+ hp cars...

    2020 Model Y Performance (barely used) or 2021 Model Y LR AWD (New)

    This is really helpful to know. Thanks for this! I'm more and more warming up to white interior.

    2020 Model Y Performance (barely used) or 2021 Model Y LR AWD (New)

    This is a superb post. 2020 Manufacturing date is Sept 5, 2020. 2021 would be in the month of May or so, expected to arrive by end of June. I don't mind the white exterior but I do prefer the black interior. So white on white isn't my top choice. My daily commute is no more than 30 miles...

    2020 Model Y Performance (barely used) or 2021 Model Y LR AWD (New)

    Logically, it makes more sense to go with the 2021 LR AWD. But it appears that resale value for the performance is much higher so speaking strictly from financial perspective, it makes more sense to go with the 2020 MY P. This isn’t an easy decision as I a) don’t really need the speed as LR...

    2020 Model Y Performance (barely used) or 2021 Model Y LR AWD (New)

    I'm leaning towards the 2020 model as it will likely retain a higher value, though I lose out on the heated steering wheel which is a huge plus as we live in a cold-weather climate.
