    Want Chrome - - Undelete ! ?

    I deleted the chrome on my S a couple of years ago. I’m thrilled that the chrome is already deleted on the Y saving me $$$. This unscientific poll indicates that most agree.

    Model Y Delivery E-Mails Incoming

    Got mine (south of Houston) at 12:35 this AM. Still waiting for 10K prior deliveries.

    Aluminum Alloy Pedal Covers

    I bought an expensive ($125) aftermarket set for my S and even though I had them professionally installed, the break pedal cover fell off three times. I got sick of having it replaced and bought the ones sold by Tesla. Model S/X Performance Pedal Set They also installed them and for the next...

    'Chrome delete' standard

    Nah. I switched to white and love the chrome delete. It is like eyeliner or “smoky eye” — beautiful. I deleted the chrome on my silver model S for the same reason. Black and silver wheels look equally gorgeous on white but the deleted chrome trim is a must. Need to make that “T” red for...

    Ordering the Performance Model without the upgrade

    Lowered suspension not desired. It would be made worse with 18 or 19 inch wheels.

    Ordering the Performance Model without the upgrade

    Dunno. 19” tires on my S lasts about 3 years — 0-60 in 3.8 seconds. Perhaps the Y will be different.

    Ordering the Performance Model without the upgrade

    No performance option for me either. I will never drive 155 mph and I’d rather not have to replace those 21” tires every couple of years. I can get pedal covers aftermarket. No lowered (fixed) suspension for me. I will need 0-60 in 3.5 seconds every day on highways and that 35 mile additional...

    Official Model Y Wheel Thread?

    I prefer dark wheels though I agree w/ @RIP->OPEC regarding the unpleasant curb-rash. I’ll hang on to the Gemini wheels since I prefer the additional 35 mile range. I may swap them out in a couple of years when I wrap it a new color.

    Significant changes to Model Y range/ options when ordering

    I love everything but the price bump. They split out features for a “performance upgrade”. All Tesla vehicles are fast but I bought my S90D after testing a S70D. I’m now spoiled by a 3.8 second 0-60. Before the change, I needed to compromise range for performance on the Y. Also, I didn’t...

    X or Y?

    I reserved an X almost year before purchasing a model S and still want an SUV. My priorities are size, ground clearance, $$$, technology, and comfort. Size: Y wins. The X is huge and is significantly wider than my S. Hate narrow parking spaces and construction area drives. The CT with its...

    Poll: What's Your Favorite Color for the Tesla Model Y?

    I switched from blue to white also and will likely get it wrapped every couple of years. Right now I’m loving my satin Xpel wrapped silver S. Satin looks great on black, silver, and white. I’m not fond of satin on blue.

    How Early is too Early to get the Y

    I’ll try to wait until 10K vehicles have been produced. I’ve learned a lot over the last 5+ years with Tesla. The features that kept me from taking a model X delivery after waiting nearly a year we’re addressed within 6 months. I’m guessing that a few things will change after 10K model Y...

    12 Volt Battery Replacement

    Wow. This isn’t me but mirrors my experience. .

    12 Volt Battery Replacement

    From the SC after my 2/27 visit: I’m questioning the efforts made by the Ranger Service. They didn’t provide any updates. They only rescheduled over and over.
