    iOS 15 - phone key keeps disconnecting

    Very odd so many are seeing this issue. I have been using iOS 15.0 since early on in the beta (iPhone 12 Pro Max) and never had a single connectivity issue. Migrated to GM of iOS 15 and no issues and then moved to the beta of iOS 15.1 (iPhone 13 Pro Max) and still no issue. I have been on...

    Y Performace vs LR?

    I was able to purchase a stealth from the last production run in late August (just after the amber tail light change). So I had the $1k price reduction and the full NYS rebate.

    Model Y PWS install and Boombox, info from Tesla Service Center

    Sorry to bump this. Curious if anyone has an update on the current ability to get the PWS speaker installed and fully functional (boombox, etc)? I have a late August MY with wiring but no speaker. Thanks

    Y Performace vs LR?

    The suspension and the wheels were a no go for me and I could not justify the extra money for the Performance Y and then purchasing new wheels/tires and coils. I was lucky enough to snag a Stealth Y last summer but with those being impossible to find, I would go with the LR and purchase the AB.

    Will a baby car seat ruin my seats?

    I know you already ordered but I thought I would throw this out there too. I have this car seat protector in the light gray color. It looks great with the white seats and I have had zero color transfer. Have been beyond happy with it over the past 8 months. Before that, I had the black color...

    Another PPF thread, but with matte

    I have a MSM Stealth Model Y. I had always planned to do a full PPF wrap on the car and ended up going with the Xpel Stealth wrap (with the satin/matte finish). I had a partial Xpel Ultimate wrap on my Model 3 and was very pleased with it. Without question it prevented several major paint...

    Introducing Agent P - My Second Tesla (2021 Model Y LR)

    Came for the Doofenshmirtz jokes but stayed for the photos.

    Model Y LR vs. Model Y Performance ride quality

    This is why I believe the Stealth (or non-PUP) Model Y should still be able to be ordered (even if it is off menu). There are a lot of people who might want the MYP but the wheels/suspension are a no go. When you start adding up the additional costs of new wheels / tires and coil overs, it...

    Former Model 3 Owners

    I moved from a 2018 RWD LR Model 3 to a Stealth Y this fall. The 3 was an incredible car and one of my favorite cars I have driven (much less owned). Ultimately the decision to make the change happened after leaving the NY area for months and driving across the US this summer. It would take a...

    Vehicle Wrap - Newbie questions

    I have MSM that I had Xpel Stealth applied too. It looks really great; I am very happy with the results. I paid about $7k including ceramic coating. The problem with using a color changing film is that you will see the original color when you open doors, trunk, frunk, etc. This isnt as much of...

    Tesla Support MIA?

    Big heads up, around 24 or 48 hours before a mobile service appointment in the NYC area, they send you an email letting you know the service can not be performed parked on the street. Luckily I was able to get a garage near me to allow the service to be done there when I had a Mobile Service...

    Cruise control / Auto Pilot is Garbage

    I have driven thousands of miles in Nav on Autopilot and have only on very rare occasion experienced phantom braking. Like you said, it is usually with overpasses and seems to have something to do with shadows. Phantom braking though has virtually gone away over the past few years; when I...

    Upgrade from Model 3 - questions.

    Having driven cross country and back in our 3 this summer with 2 months worth of stuff for two adults and a preschooler, we made the switch because of space. We would spend a day just loading up the 3. The Y has meaningfully more cargo space in terms of usability and the 2nd row has much...
