    Tesla Model Y T-Sportline 19" TSS Winter Tires and Wheels, for pickup in SW CT, barely used

    Looks like they're on sale now. So if someone wants my tires now, I'll drop my price to match. Once the sale ends, their price goes up and so does mine.

    Installing OBD2 reader

    Ok, double-correction. The kind of adapter I have is the kind that looks like your photo and it works but doesn't let you close the panel fully. The kind I linked to above is the kind that looks like it'll actually fit. In fact, I just ordered one so I can swap. HTH and sorry about the initial...

    Bad news: the adapter I show above does not fit well. I can't close the panel fully. See below!

    Installing OBD2 reader

    Ok, I got it working by turning off Sentry mode and disabling Bluetooth on my phone. The relay noise is actually quite loud. Haven't closed the panel yet because, by the time I got around to that part, it was dark and it wasn't obvious how to shove the cable out of the way to make room. Will...

    Installing Amazon Echo Auto in Model Y.

    Right. Although, of course, nothing really stops Tesla from integrating Alexa so that pressing the button on the steering wheel is the wake word for it. Having said that, Tesla's support for voice recognition is half-assed right now. It can understand the words just fine, but has very few...

    Installing Amazon Echo Auto in Model Y.

    It's for cars that don't necessarily have microphones, but you're probably right. In principle, there's no reason why the Tesla couldn't run an Alexa client natively. In principle.

    Thanks, this is very helpful. It's gotta be due to having left Sentry Mode on. But I'll use the charger/LED trick to make sure.

    Installing OBD2 reader

    I was looking for any existing threads on the topic, but I can't seem to find any, and I'm a bit nervous. I have this adapter and I was watching videos like this one and that one. The key step is making sure the car is completely off before unplugging the cable to insert the adapter, and I'm...

    Which Winter/Snow Tires

    That's true, but my main motivation was to get some sidewall.

    Vendor Want to remove the Model Y emblems?...Think again.

    Can confirm that my June-built car does not have holes where the badges used to be.

    Which Winter/Snow Tires

    I have the 21" summer tires and don't want winter tires that size, so I went for new rims. Got 19" ones, complete with tires and TPMS sensors.

    Model Y Performance - Snow Tires Possible?

    That's fair. And if you already have all the tools and are used to doing it, it's no big deal.
