    Model Y Performance vs. GV60...Drag!

    Can Tesla just release track mode already? It's getting embarrassing at this point that every other performance EV in the segment has it.

    Any Hardcore Car Enthusiast Out Here? I Have Questions About Going to Model 3

    I have two little ones, so the larger footprint of the Y is certainly a plus. I think a lot of my concerns would/could be remedied by enabling track mode on the MYP, but for some unknown reason they haven't done it yet.

    Any Hardcore Car Enthusiast Out Here? I Have Questions About Going to Model 3

    Big enthusiast here coming from a line of performance cars - e46, e92, F80 M3s (including an M3cs for the latter), an X3Mc among others. I always had a special place reserved in my garage for the aforementioned and would supplement with a beater (currently a Honda Fit). We recently went solar...

    Cloth On Base of White Front Seats

    Bumping this up. Has anyone been able to get/keep these fabric sections clean?

    Cleaning the cloth portion of our white seats?

    Same issue here! It is literally impossible to get those fabric sections clean. I've gone as far as using my steamer on them and they still aren't perfect. No idea why they chose fabric for those sections, let alone white fabric.

    New "wraparound" dash door panels for the US Model Y's - retrofit to existing cars?

    So do we need to order entirely new door panels? Or are they modular and we can swap out the top portion for a new one with the wraparound trim?

    Bottom dropping out of used market?

    I think we can all agree that resale value has long be touted as a strength of the MY and M3. The real question is whether there will be a rebound or if we are seeing a permanent lowering of the floor.
  8. B

    Bottom dropping out of used market?

    Something has to give here if used prices don't rebound soon. Paying 75ish for an MYP today and having it take a 15-20k hit off the lot just isn't sustainable for the target market. That might work for a BMW M3 (which oddly enough have insane resale right now), but not for a Model 3/Y.

    Rolling Resale Value Thread

    My offers from August on Carvana/Vroom/Carmax were about 20% more than they are now. It's nutty

    Using a full car cover in winters

    I have this same exact question. We have two model Ys but only a single car garage, so I'd love to get some extra protection in the winter for the odd man out.

    Tesla adding powered frunk to Model Y?

    I'd much rather have track mode

    Selling on Vroom, Carvana or Driveway

    Keep in mind that values are way, way down on these sites from just last month. 20-30% in some cases.

    Used Prices/Valuations dipping?

    I had to try this myself and... wow our Carvana Offer $61,598 Expires Saturday, September 10 2022 Tesla Model Y Performance Sport Utility 4D 1000 miles

    Used Prices/Valuations dipping?

    Wow that is a precipitous drop from just a few weeks ago. I put my MYP with ~1k miles into Carvana and Vroom at the beginning of August and they were in the 70-72k range. Crazy

    Tesla Model Y Performance Real Horsepower and Torque

    My guess is that they could easily add another 50hp if they wanted, maybe more. The jump from say, 300-400 is a lot more jarring on a car than 500-600. The tolerance for those parts is already very high I'm assuming.
