    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    Does Toolbox 3 allow any user the ability to do what a SC or mobile tech can do?

    Model Y bumpy ride "Rear Spring replacement"

    I asked my SC and they quoted $110 each for revision C of the springs. Didn't ask about dampers nor labor for installation.

    Michelin CrossClimate 2 finally coming to Model Y size

    Great to hear that my recommendation worked out for you! I've let the BMS recalibrate, and I hover at 100% charge between 293 and 301, depending on time of year. I haven't seen 316 since the first three weeks of ownership. When the firmware update that reset the full charge to 326 came out, I...

    Michelin CrossClimate 2 finally coming to Model Y size

    Almost 25K on my Quatrac Pros now. I'm lazy and rotated once, so shame on me. Mostly highway, and they still look relatively new. Lifetime Wh/Mi is around 270....need to look at the latest. FWIW, when I charge to 100% before a trip, the max range reported is 301 miles. Early vin 9XXX, June...

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    Most likely have to get a mobile tech out for another reason...pretty sure they will deny this ask if I place it through the app. I can't seem to find the reddit post so I don't know how another owner was able to successfully do this.

    Two small oil like patches 29 in apart at front about in line with the front wheels,thoughts

    I wouldn't even second guess this issue and make an appointment at your SC immediately.

    Roof damaged during delivery

    I've had both my windshield and roof glass replaced at the Sterling SC in Virginia and they are actually better than they were from the factory (better alignments/gaps). Took a few weeks for the glass to come in, and once it was in, it was a 2-day repair. It may be quicker to get a new VIN...

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    All parts that arrived are correct! The updated part number 1499137-00-C is correct for the HEPA filter intake duct. I feel these parts were very inexpensive for what you get. Coming from decades of German car ownership, these same parts would have been 5 times the price, at least.

    Got notice my parts arrived. Headed to the SC to pickup soon.

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    Great to hear! I'm still waiting due to backorder, but hopefully this means they have more inventory and I'll receive mine soon.

    The market is so broken

    Here's another dealer in Virginia with a significant, and high-priced MY inventory. Many with less than 100 miles. I have to think these were purchased by the dealer for resale. With how little inventory is available of ICE cars (or ID.4 in this case) it is hard to believe these were all...

    The market is so broken

    There are more Teslas at this one dealer than the entire mid-Atlantic Tesla locations combined. And at absurd prices. Also gotta love the $125K to $150K Lightnings and $250K Hummer EV. So many MYLRs with less than 75 miles on them at more than $75K each. Unreal. The market is so broken.

    Any other owners second guess if their next car should be another Tesla?

    It depends on where charging options are headed, but at the current price point, I would not get another MY. I don't feel it is worth $12K for the same car, and can't justify paying more used than I did new. But also not looking to get rid of my MY, so my decision is about a 2nd car. I don't...

    Another price increase

    This is unreal, but how market demand works. I would never buy by MYLR at this price. Happy with the car, but if this is where the price will remain for the next few years, my next EV will not be a Tesla, unfortunately. And if VW or GM can produce, they are going to dominate the less than $50K...

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    Just heard back from my SC. They changed the part number to 1499137-00-C. They said it has not been possible for them to order 1499137-99-C, and the system won't let them enter that part number. They confirmed that 1499137-00-C is for the HEPA filter, and didn't mention it being on back...
