    Model Y Perf or BMW X3M?

    I have driven BMW's since the very first generation X5 in 1999. My husband had a BMW since the 80's. I was very brand loyal (X5, X3, X1, X4, 530e) keeping some of them for a long time (the X3 went from me, to my husband after a deer totaled his, then in turn to both daughters) and was...

    Installed my wall charger - in Hawaii

    I used my fast charger for the first time today: wow, SOO amazingly fast compared to the wall plug. I would say it is a most impressive cheese platter to accompany all my fine whining....

    Opinions wanted: 2016 Base Model S or new Model Y

    Have you driven them both? For me, it's 100% how it feels when I drive it. Plus I like to sit higher and like the room of the Y. My friend has a 2016 PSD and says the Y feels more "up to date" BUT he ordered a plaid, and will always be a Model S person. I guess you need to decide if you...

    EV Alternatives to Model Y?

    I had a BMW 530e hybrid, and I wanted to get rid of it for a Mercedes EQA,but production for that got delayed. That ugly little BMW i3 is like $50K!!! nope..... I wanted an SUV. I went through your dilemma, and chose the Model Y as a "transition car" while I wait for better options. The...

    Wall charger cable length

    I would put it under the red fire box by the door, if they will let you? If you put it on the other side, with as close as you have to back in, it own't be easy to unhook the charger from the holster and bring it over the back of the car, or wrap it up and put it back. The cable is pretty...

    Installed my wall charger - in Hawaii

    The charger is like 10 feet from the electrical panel. They had to put pvc pipe through the wall, then along the corner of the ceiling and down to the charger. He drew an extra 220 line ( there was one, I didn't watch) , and the charger is on a 60amp circuit. Nothing special to do, as the...

    Installed my wall charger - in Hawaii

    $1300 for the install!!! apparently it required TWO journey man electricians ($125 per hour). Two? man,I would have gladly held the ladder and passed the screwdriver? I didn't watch, so maybe it's more of an effort than I thought? Or is that in line with what you all are paying? No...

    Model Y SR owners, how's the real world range of the SR working out for you? Chime in and let us know. pros & cons.

    Thank you! I saw this in another post and it became the reason that I mainly now use the voice controls. Some of them are pretty cute, which my friends get a kick out of. They are awesome, and so much safer than poking at the screen... which I do take some time to do while sitting in the car...

    Model Y SR owners, how's the real world range of the SR working out for you? Chime in and let us know. pros & cons.

    I have had my SR for a little over a week. For my needs, the SR range is fine. I live on the island, so a road trip is basically just a trip to Costco. An extensive road trip would include Target. For me, the "trickle charge" speed of just plugging it into the wall is too slow. My friends...

    SR MY - Took Delivery Today

    Yes, I think you are right. It charges at like 6 miles per hour right now . :eek: Right now, it is full up (80%) with no plans to go anywhere but around the resort, but being a seasoned "Big Island Prepper" I really feel I need that full-on quick charge option. If I start the ball rolling...

    Edit design - Delivery estimate

    Same here. When I ordered, I saw that delivery was "6 to 12 weeks" so I ordered based on that, as I did not need the car for at least 6 weeks. I got a call within a week with a VIN, so I told them what my timing expectations were and they put my order on "inactive" with a note to call me...
