    Heated Steering Wheel?

    If Tesla was based in the Midwest instead of CA, they would have heated steering wheels, for the $100-150 it would add to the price. Definitely helps with the winter heating hit on range, despite being able to warm up the car remotely. From Kias and Hyundais to my previous Chevy Bolt offering...

    Enhanced autopilot is scary

    Uggh, I'll be new to this in the next few weeks....I think from what I've heard, you just manually accelerate through this? Will have to learn the riskier overpasses, as there are some I foresee could be a problem. Any other common triggers for phantom braking to be aware of? Thanks.

    Winter Setup - Will this work?

    Same size as what I've ordered (and told by vendors would work well), the wheels should be ok if 40-45 offset. Looks like they're a Tesla application. The open face wheel may affect range due to aero issues, unless these are similar to what you're running in the summer. Have heard generally...

    Model Y Performance - Snow Tires Possible?

    Yep, better to have a square set of 19s ready with some decent winter tires mounted....Nokian R3s, Vred Wintraks, Michelin Snows. You'll need a second set anyway, and will make the 21s last longer, if you choose to keep them. Do not drive the 21s even out of the lot in snow or ice.

    Model Y - Snow Tires Recommendations

    Talked with a service tech today who was surprised to learn that Y owners can't (currently) select their own wheel size on the MFD when swapping out for winter wheels, like their other cars. We shared a hopeful opinion that this should be coming via an update. Otherwise calling for service...

    Air suspension kit Recommendations?

    Air is what I wanted. Because of some particularly acute driveway crests in my daily life (even before they have snow on them), I can't lower my PY as I'd hoped. And have mountain snow and forest service/fishing roads to contend with. Realizing they're trying to keep to a price point, I'd...

    MY Group Buy (Suma Convex Mirrors for MY, S, X and 3)

    The group buy discount code is still active as of tonight, 9/14! Since having the blue mirrors in my S4, I've missed them in subsequent cars. Never found them distorted, but have always found the glare distracting. Apparently these guys have a better process to make it blue, so, we'll see...

    What are the odds of an in-app acceleration boost purchase?

    Why yes, I'd love some enhancement for my P...I mean, it's already pretty amazing, but...why not? :cool:

    Model Y - Snow Tires Recommendations

    I tried to avoid the TPMS at first also, but the thing is, especially in winter, it's valuable when it gets cold and tire pressure drops. On most modern cars that have the sensors, many shops won't even install the tires without them. I had the old Altimax Arctics too, but compared to the...

    Apple Music in MY using the browser

    Nice tunes, Primal Scream, Moby, Fatboy... Thanks for the tip. Like more control over editing and mixing, so can't do the streaming, looking for iPhone or SSD solutions for the maiden voyage on delivery day!

    Range increase without Uberturbines?

    You're right, it's going to depend on multiple factors, wheel and tire width, offset, weight, and construction. Suspension lowering and wheel design that affect aero resistance. Even how much weight with passengers+cargo, head vs tail winds, rain, etc. Just to say, difficult to quantify...

    Model Y Performance - Snow Tires Possible?

    Especially if you get a lot of snow, strongly consider the Nokian R3 SUV tires, relatively good price right now for the right size for the Y at discount tire, 255/45/19. With less range in the winter due to colder temps (colder air is more dense) and higher HVAC use, an aero wheel that also...

    Model Y - Snow Tires Recommendations

    Nokian R3 SUV is also a relatively good deal right now at Discount Tire (255.45.19). Per their website at least, has one notch higher tread life, 1 lb lighter, and has the double aramid side walls vs. the mere mortal regular car version. Built with green tech, EVs and rolling resistance in...

    Where to get winter wheels?

    My understanding is that the new bluetooth sensors for the Y (different than the 3) are currently available mainly at Tesla. Have been looking at the same, winter wheels for this beast. Don't get wheels that aren't rated for the increased weight of the Y! Much the same when I got one of the...
