    Do ALL New 2022 Model S Ordered Come With the Yoke? I ordered in October and it shows it will be supplied with the yoke. I'm sort of on the fence..

    I think I'd prefer to just go with the standard wheel, but if it shows up with the yoke it won't be a no-go. Is there an official way to reach out to tesla to see what options are other than trying an unlikely phone call to a human or ask/confirm in the app where the car is in order/verify status?

    Model S 2022 - Is There the TESLA Lettering (strip?) right below where the trunk closes like the 2016 and earlier have ?

    I cannot definitively tell from rear end angled Model S 2022 pictures on the Tesla website or other ramdom site pictures, whether there is the the thin tapered strip (chrome/black) with the raised TESLA block font lettering that exists. I dont see after market parties providing skins or letter...

    Alarm Mode and Lightening

    Has anyone had issue with the Alarm being set off by either lightening or thunder? Its happened several times and I don't know what the exact 1 of the 2 is the cause. I believe it's the lightening, but the loud thunder rumble might really be the cause. Once I get the ap alert, being away...

    Recalls for loose bolt

    Can anyone show an image of what the bolts look like? My wife found a bolt in our driveway and threw it away thinking it was construction debris since homes are still being built on our street. :( It could also be related to my S. That would be a bummer.

    Tesmanian Model Y spoiler matte black

    I don't know about the Tesmanian made version's overall quality, but quality of carbon fiber (CF) varies greatly. Also, some people, possibly your husband, just like the look of CF better than matte or gloss black plastics. I have a CF on my S that is 4 years old. It is gloss CF, and was made...

    Driver side mirror does not fully adjust

    I'm guessing there's an issue with the mirror. Your height would not have any affect unless it's a vertical adjustment you are missing. I would think for blind spot it would be horizontal. MY will adjust further than I need so again, probably issue that service should check.

    Lets see some different aftermarket wheels

    #1, is that a wrap (I'm guessing no), and #2, if it's not WHAT are you using to get such a mirror shine/reflection? Most I've seen so far. :)

    Paint repair of scratches from road debris

    I had this guy fix my Model S TWICE where the garage door moving down scratched my bumper WAY WORSE, and he was able to fix in about one hour and you can never tell. About $100-200 was all it cost. https://fixmypaint.com/ Might want to give him a try if able.

    Error showing with Samsung usb for recording?

    I feel your frustration. For now, I'm using a very old Sony USB stick with only 32GB; even has poor write speed compared to today's devices. It works until I figure out what to do next. I've not tried to format my Samsung SSD drive from a computer (other than thru car), so I may try that. I...

    Possible Wifi Fix for Those That Can't Connect - Check Network Name Error

    I've been dealing with a new Y since delivery on Sept 12th, where it will not connect to ANY wifi network other than my or my wife's iphone's hot spot. My 2 home networks, nope. My ATT portable LTE hotspot, nope. A local Starbux hotspot, nope. Zip, nada. Always failed with "network connection...

    Error showing with Samsung usb for recording?

    I have a Samsung SSD 1TB drive that has been working fine UP UNTIL I took this weekends firmware upgrade for the Y. Now sentry will not work at all. It keeps requiring me to format the drive, but as soon as I leave the car, it shuts down any recording by the sentry mode. The car went in for...

    My New Y Nearly Stopped.......... for a tree leaf

    I haven sentry, but I've not learned all its in and outs. I know I have the horn honk set to record the last 30 seconds or whatever it does, but I didn't think to do that. I still don't know enough about sentry mode. i.e. Is it recording all the time even when in motion, or just when parked...

    My New Y Nearly Stopped.......... for a tree leaf

    Picked up new MY Saturday. Was driving today on divided four lane state highway. Median separated the double lanes had trees of all sizes, most fairly large. Car was on cruise, but not autopilot; 60mph. Out of the left corner of my eye, I caught a decent sized tree leaf beginning to tumble...
