    Long family camping road trip; how would you?

    There are some backyard scientist studies out there that have shown that a roof box with wheels (e.g. on a utility trailer) is significantly more efficient than a roof box on the roof. Which would be another option! Reduced frontal area and significantly reduces the wake size is the general...

    Removing Enhanced Autopilot

    In theory, it is forward compatible. At least right now. Down the road you may need HWX.X to support the FSD version, but let's say you changed your mind a month after receipt, it'd be no issue. As for cost: my understanding is the cost would be the current cost difference between EAP and FSD...

    Removing Enhanced Autopilot

    OP is in the UK. If I recall there are other countries laws and regulations that required allowing EAP to continue to exist because some FSD capabilities are not allowed.

    Why aren't the back seats level?

    In my car the seat backs are level, but in one position (there are two) the right side sits forward a little more. I have seen others that are not. My assumption is it's some tolerance stack between the latch, the seat frame, and the vehicle body. In the fully reclined position it is more level.

    Does anybody know the part number

    It would appear both brackets are part of the "front ankle catcher" assembly. 1505433-00-A PS: Tesla service has provided free access to the service manual for one year (for now): https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/tesla-service-manual-100-free.267600/

    Vendor Bomely® Tesla Model 3&Y Accessories are Constantly Being Updated.

    I like this concept. I store probably too much in the trunk and treat it like my old hatchback and unfortunately don't take good enough care. I have a trunk mat that covers the carpeted area, but is too short to prevent scratching of the upper plastic area. Would be nice to see if these could...

    2022 Model Y 4680 Structural Pack is "Amazing", Says Munro & Associates

    It really is just the potential for a larger range pack in. But as noted before, it doesn't make sense to extend the range beyond 300 miles for cars like the M3, MY, MS, MX unless they offer an "extended range" version say an increased officer point. Especially if the 4680 had reduce charging...

    Towing with Tesla Model Y LR

    Some insight to SAE J2807, which may be useful to others who want to know what defines the tow rating of a vehicle, rather than the tow rating of the equipment. https://www.motortrend.com/how-to/1502-sae-j2807-tow-tests-the-standard/...

    Model Y Black window Trim chips

    As far as I understand, the black trim on our MY is actually aluminum oxide colored black in the anodization process. As a result, I don't think you'll ever quite get the right effect with paint. You might try this product from Caswell, which is a big name in anodizing, otherwise sharpie is a...

    Model y performance air suspension?

    I mean tires are part of suspension, and they're filled with air! Also double checked, rear suspension is spring and damper.

    Model y performance air suspension?

    Unless they made some drastic updates under the radar, still just coilovers on the MY's. Only X and S have factory air suspension. Sure would be nice, though!

    Help Finding Thread on hard wire Radar Detector

    Not sure if you found but maybe this is what you or future thread finder may be looking for.

    System Error - Sentry, Autopilot, etc

    Good to see it's hardware related, at least there is a root cause in this case! (Hopefully!)

    Autopilot errors in 2022.12.3.16

    I didn't think to post here, this definitely makes more sense. Seems we had very similar issues. Some additional resources I referenced while on my trip (there are many more) indicating there is no real rhyme or reason, just a series of unfortunate events resulting in some stack error, but...

    System Error - Sentry, Autopilot, etc

    2021 MYLR in NA. Just updated to 2022.12.3.20 on Friday. I have often had "System Errors" kick me off NoA or FSD, I think due to no cell service somewhere in the hills of West Virginia (US35 north of Charleston). This last time I was heading northwest on I77 to I64 south of Charleston, and I had...
