    Passenger Fender Camera Displays Black

    Oh yes - that was the verdict. I took it in for the service appointment and two problems were corrected: Whole camera assembly was replaced. The tech said water was getting inside because it wasn’t fitted correctly at the factory, and a water sensor inside automatically shut it down so as to...

    Passenger Fender Camera Displays Black

    Weirdest thing yesterday, so I wanted to run it by the group. My wife and I drove to my grandmother’s yesterday to take her out to dinner. When we got in the car and turned on the backup camera, the passenger side camera wasn’t functioning and Autopilit shut down. We parked, came back, same...

    Wall Connector Install - 50 v 40 amp

    You need a permit and electrical inspection; the last thing you want is the fire department marking you have non-permitted electrical work if something happens. Depending on your setup you may need both a rough and final inspection if you need to go behind drywall. We just needed a final...

    Tesla Test Drive experience at Short Hills Mall, NJ

    They had a loop built in driving from Short Hills to the Livingston Mall and back. So we drove in the JFK primarily. We didn’t venture off course because neither my wife nor I drove an EV prior to this, but we we were able to get up to 55 / 60 on some parts of the route.

    NJ - Time to Plates

    The vehicle description seems correct. That’s what’s showing on our registration (TSM 2021 Wagon SL Mod ). It’s probably the state who assigns the model descriptions for the manufacturer, so I’d chalk it up to a bureaucrat in Trenton. Good luck getting anything done with MVC. I had to go last...

    Question for April orders only

    Ordered April 11 and made no changes to the order. I forget the exact date, but our car was produced mid-May (188xxx) and delivered May 29. We are one of the first vehicles without radar - only using Tesla Vision. I know that messed up orders for a while and created a backlog.

    Model Y - Rear door PPF and Mudflaps?

    At least as of early June no, you need to purchase them separately. The price is fairly reasonable though and they collectively take 10 minutes to install on your own.

    Tesla Test Drive experience at Short Hills Mall, NJ

    That’s an annoying experience to say the least. My wife and I did the test drive at Short Hills, and we walked into the gallery to chat a bit with one of the reps who then directed us to the car, which he remotely unlocked and started for us. No big deal and nothing really crazy. Staffing issues...

    Delivery Day - Payment, Timing, and Containing Myself

    Yup! Easy to schedule in-person. When you arrive they’ll direct you to the cars for a self-guided test drive. One of the reps at Short Hills showed us how to operate the Y in the gallery. They can’t discuss actually getting the car there though because it’s not a dealership, so if you want to...

    Delivery Day - Payment, Timing, and Containing Myself

    Hi Trip, Yes, I would recommend them. Just keep in mind that the best way to actually get in touch with the service center is just a go there in person. They are subject to the same Tesla phone hopping nonsense that every other service center deals with. You can realistically complete...

    NJ - Time to Plates

    We actually went out of town, but we were able to track down with Springfield that our plates were a little delayed because the financing bank (U.S. Bank) needed to send a document for MVC over. We’re all registered now, just without the plates in hand. We’re working on a solution for getting...

    New driver - Best cheap insurance?

    You shouldn’t need to do that. If I remember correctly NY basically just requires the VIN to be on the insurance card, the same as NJ. Because you have delivery scheduled you should have your VIN in your Tesla account. Call Progressive and tell them it’s a new card and you’ll be the first owner...

    New driver - Best cheap insurance?

    Living in NYC that’s just what they charge. We moved out of NYC last August, and I can tell you it’s just expensive all around to keep a car in the city given the exceptionally high location-based risk. There are also a lot of factors that can influence your quote if you’re coming from overseas...

    NJ - Time to Plates

    Hi all - just wondering if anyone in NJ can share how long it took Tesla to get you your “real” plates and registration. In the past with other dealers we’ve basically gotten them in two weeks, but we’re going away at the end of the month when the temp tag expires so I’m interested to see at...

    Delivery Day - Payment, Timing, and Containing Myself

    All ended up making out well. Ended up connecting with the SC and got everything worked out, and we’re happily with our MY! For future reference we ended up having the following answers:
