    First California Vehicle Registration Renewal

    They give you a small one time EV rebate and hit you with higher annual registration renewal fees. My first renewal just came in at $675, compared to my previous ICE registration at around $250. I'm happy with my MYLR but CA likes to find as many ways to tax you without calling it a tax.

    2-piece Roof Sunshade

    I agree that it looks very much like the version I purchased from Aliexpress. Eventually they all make their way to Amazon or other reseller like RPM, teslarati, etc.

    2-piece Roof Sunshade

    I agree about the color closely matching the head liner that you hardly notice it. I had the black version previously and hated it. Made the cabin feel oppressive. This light greyish color looks so close to the headliner fabric, it looks OEM to my eyes. My wife didn't notice the sunshade for...

    2-piece Roof Sunshade

    Yes, I'm fairly happy with their performance considering we had a heatwave over the weekend with temperatures over 100 degrees and my car was parked out in the sun as we ran some chores. The car did not get as hot as when I did not use the shades or when I had the black roof shades. Simple...

    Successful retrofit of passenger lumbar on 2021 Model Y

    I just signed up fr the free 1 year repair subscription plan hoping that somewhere in the codes PDF would be an option to turn back on the lumbar controls but no joy. It's just a list of their service codes.

    2-piece Roof Sunshade

    Yes, mine comes with 12 white/ semi translucent clips. The fit between the two panels where they come together is fairly good with no visible gaps and no light coming through. As someone else pointed out, I think they are made by one or more manufacturers using similar designs. They tend to...

    2-piece Roof Sunshade

    My shades arrived a couple of weeks ago and I installed them. Product description and photos indicate they have labels for the front and back but mine did not have the labels. The tag is there but no lettering. It's pretty self explanatory because the front and back pieces have different...

    Successful retrofit of passenger lumbar on 2021 Model Y

    Without knowing or seeing the schematics and what is controlled by the MCU, we can only guess but we already know that Tesla is able to pull data from almost anything in the car. It likely means they can disable anything they can obtain data from. The lumbar controls for sure and very likely...

    Successful retrofit of passenger lumbar on 2021 Model Y

    I don't think they will restore functionality anytime soon. It'll give lie to,"no one is using it." They already removed data from the USB-C's in the center console. Now they are not including the mobile charger with new cars. I'm waiting to see what else gets removed.

    Elon stops providing mobile connector/says “you're on your own”

    They said the same thing about the passenger side lumbar controls. "No one was using it". So many defended them when they did it. Some of us installed them ourselves but two firmware updates ago, they brick the controls of the DIY-ers. Again this was defended by many. Now they have come for...

    Time to DIY PPF!!

    Congratulations! For a first time, it looks really good. Much better than my effort. I have some creases near the bottom of my front bumper and my kit did not have as good a fitment as yours. Lessons learned. Did you share links for your kit for others?

    Time to DIY PPF!!

    Congrats! I did the same thing. I didn't drive my car when I first bought it, until I had completed the PPF installation. That's a lot of self control because every part of me wanted to take the car out for a spin but I didn't want to have to clean and prep the car each time.

    Time to DIY PPF!!

    Agree about the doors. I did full ppf for all four doors. They were the easiest to do and the best to start on, with the bumper the last to do. The PPF has already paid for itself with the amount of damage it has received from road debris. The paint below remains fine but the ppf after almost...

    2-piece Roof Sunshade

    I just placed an order on Ali Express for a similar version of the two piece but with a light grey color and a reflective top. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005004056240702.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.21ef1802xJ0Kzh Once I receive it and install it, I'll provide a review of it here...

    Successful retrofit of passenger lumbar on 2021 Model Y

    This is frustrating beyond belief. We had it working and now they have deactivated it. I doubt a lumbar controller configuration would impact anything else significant in the car to have it deactivated like this.
