    Vote for Michelin CrossClimate 2 tires for Tesla Model Y

    I have the Crossclimate+ on my Model 3 (18" wheels) and have driven them in deep snow (had a 4+' snowstorm shortly after I got them-- roads were snowpacked for 2 weeks) and in Seattle rain. In all cases the performance beat all expectations. Want to get a set for my Model Y but the lack of an...

    Blendmount radar mount doesn't work for model Y :(

    What did you end up doing? I cut the lip off the blendmount and it still doesn't quite fit. Have any pictures?

    Truck Delivery in New Mexico

    Latest. Tesla is setting up a repair at a local bodyshop for the bent door panel. They ordered a new headlight and a bunch of brackets to deal with the scratched headlight housing and unaligned bumped. A new issue has cropped up. The rear-left door (which was perfectly aligned) became...

    Truck Delivery in New Mexico

    One update. I am still waiting on mobile service to fix the remaining issues. I have put ~ 1k miles on the Model Y so far. Order, and installed, a bunch of accessories. Got the 3D Max Spider mats (preorder) and they are pretty awesome (will post pictures tomorrow) and order a number of parts...

    How does Tesla handle getting payment from a third party lender?

    The last page of the MVPA gives payment instructions. By mail or wire. It is up to your bank which is used. Mine used a mailed check and it took Tesla ~ 2-3 days to process it.

    MSM/White Interior/Induction Wheels Waiting Area

    This is my configuration but ordered awhile ago. Took delivery in July after modifying the order to have induction wheels in June. Build date is June 19. I don't think this is a particularly slow config.

    Induction Wheels Have All Season Tires (not Summer Tires)

    Mine are also M+S. This is a big marketing fail on Goodyear's part. They should have different branding. Don't really care though because I will throw these out in favor of much better tires before the first snowfall. My Model 3 currently has the Michelin Crossclimate+ and I have been very...

    Truck Delivery in New Mexico

    Nice! That is a bit better. Would be nice to have on down in Trinidad. That is possible without stopping at a supercharger. NM will probably pass a modification to the franchise act before that happens. I know I will be pushing hard on the state senators I know. If the minority party looses 3-4...

    Truck Delivery in New Mexico

    They do not need to be present to document the issues. I documented most of the issues on delivery day using schedule service. I kept updating the service request as I found other issues.

    Truck Delivery in New Mexico

    Ended up with a $0 total. The $166 was an estimate if it was deemed not to be warranty work. The mobile tech showed up around 5:15PM MDT today. He adjusted both windshield wipers (apparently both were low), replaced the missing clips, replaced the trunk tub, and ordered a replacement headlight...

    Truck Delivery in New Mexico

    Mobile service will fix the trunk pan and tail lights on Thursday. Will probably take multiple appointments to fix the remaining issues. Hope I don't have to drive up to littleton (6 hours) to get them addressed. They sent me an estimate of $166. Not quite sure what that is about given this is...

    Picture of missing clips. There are three total. Two on the cowl and one to the side of the frunk.

    Tail light gaps. Fixable.

    Photos showing the gap difference between the passenger's and driver's side headlights. The passenger one looks like a common issue and appears to be fixable.
