    2-button reset not working

    Sorry if this has been addressed elsewhere, I’ve done some searching but haven’t found anything helpful. Basically, the 2-button reboot doesn’t work on my MYP. Or more accurately, it works differently than it did on my previous Teslas. It goes like this: - Hold down the steering wheel buttons...

    I can’t believe it happened to me

    Until today, I was laughing at the poor suckers always posting about rashed rims. “I’m more careful than that, I have excellent situational awareness,” I told myself. The scary thing to me with this is that I have no idea how or when I did it. I didn’t hear or feel a thing, and no one else has...

    Sentry mode not recording events

    I have the opposite problem - I get anywhere from 400-1,000 “events” per night in my parking garage, and I have to format my 500GB SSD weekly to prevent it from filling up. Want to split the difference with me? 😂

    New Official Tesla Model Y trunk storage bins

    Good thought, but it’s a 5-seater (MYP). I haven’t had a chance yet, but I think I can probably manipulate the position of the bin a bit to make it more flush.

    Next Gen Model Y

    Obviously, the longer you hold onto your cars, the more it makes sense to take this type of thing into consideration. But if you change cars every 2-3 years (not usually smart financially, but it’s just the cadence a lot of people are used to), it really doesn’t matter. By the time you’re really...

    New Official Tesla Model Y trunk storage bins

    Interesting… my lids are definitely a half inch or so lower than the rest of the floor. I’ll have to investigate and see if I can reposition the bins somehow.

    New Official Tesla Model Y trunk storage bins

    Installed these yesterday, and they’re just okay… For some reason I’m having trouble getting the right side to fit perfectly, and with the lids on, they sit lower than the floor, so it’s not super seamless. Will keep them though, they’ll still make those cubbies more usable.

    Ordered MY LR but wanting MYP

    I was worried about firmness before I took delivery of my MYP, but it’s totally fine. If you’re accustomed to even remotely sporty suspensions, it’ll feel normal. That said, I wouldn’t dream of running these 21s (as good as they look) in an area with bad roads.

    Model Y: Tesla Vision - no radar drive at night

    This is such a huge problem. Every few months of my Tesla ownership, I have tried the auto high beams to see if I could use them without random flashes and without aggravating other drivers. Every time, I’ve turned it off again within minutes. Never mind FSD, this is going to make TACC useless...

    No more radar in Model Y/3

    The narrow-angle camera has always been rated for 250m vs. 160m for the Conti radar in V2.5/3, so they’re definitely putting in the work here to make the best of a maybe-not-perfect situation.

    New deliveries come with rear door PPF

    Nice. I’ve been dragging my feet on installing the PPF because I have the workmanship of a toddler. Asked the SC to do it, but they refused (they did my mudflaps however).

    No more radar in Model Y/3

    Agree with this sentiment. The cars piling up at the factory and distribution centers supposedly “waiting on a part” jibes with all of this. Elon probably said “let’s just rip the band-aid off and go pure vision now so we can get these cars sold” rather than wait for the radar supply to rebound...

    No more radar in Model Y/3

    I believe that’s accomplished with the ultrasonic sensors, not the radar.

    Possible to turn off passenger face vents?

    My theory - and this is purely a theory - is that they added a servo-controlled louver inside the passenger side duct and didn’t add one to the driver’s side. This would explain why older 3s don’t have it, and also why it’s not controllable in the UI, because you can’t also toggle the driver’s...

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    Noticing no one who says they’ve gotten it is in CA. I wonder if they’re still ironing out the latest auto wiper rewrite and testing it with people who actually see rain this time of year.
