    Lessons learned from a 2300 mile road trip

    Our daughter is prone to motion sickness as well. Driving on autopilot and aggressive regen in stop and go traffic are the triggers. Chill mode helps.

    Rear doors can be opened in the event of power failure

    Indeed. Thank you again for reminding/informing us.

    Rear doors can be opened in the event of power failure

    Why do the emergency handles need to be inoperable when the power is on? Just add a switch that also triggers the window to drop when the power is on. Then it works power-on or power-off. My aging mother-in-law still tries to pull the emergency handle to get out of the front passenger seat even...

    Or, you know, Tesla could just make actual door handles that also drop the window a bit when pulled. Commence flaming... ;)

    Tesla Y 2.0

    Right up until you are in an emergency and muscle memory reaches for the part of the wheel that isn't there.

    Tesla Y 2.0

    Until it works correctly, the yoke is an absolute NOPE for me. As implemented, It's just silly. The only thing it does help with is an unobstructed view of the dash, which the 3/Y don't have.

    Talk me out of the new Model S refresh

    It's not just the yoke, but also the removal of the stalks that consequently added buttons to the yoke (left and right turn-signal buttons; wipers, etc). I'm sure someone will eventually come up with a swap, but for now, it's not an option.

    Talk me out of the new Model S refresh

    The yoke kills the Model S refresh for me. If they ever get it to work as it work as it should, I might reconsider but as is, it's just a steering wheel without the wheel.

    Who has a MY order on hold expecting to take delivery in Q3 and is now considering waiting for a Austin MY?

    When we sold (private sale) our Model 3 with FSD nobody wanted to pay even a dime more for it. It sold at the same price as other non-FSDs. The resale value was good and we purchased FSD during the $2,000 sale at the end of 2018 so it wan't a huge loss, but I agree that FSD isn't worth much in...

    Great work. Appreciate the craftsmanship.

    Why PPF?

    IMO, doing the entire body is overkill, but the nose, hood and mirrors are worth it to protect from clear coat etching from bug guts, chips from rocks, etc. You can polish it out, even repaint, but that all takes time and effort where PPF is one and done.

    How much do you pay for Model Y per month?

    Best advice I ever received was to never take out a loan on a depreciating asset (like a vehicle). Get something you can pay cash for now and make monthly payments to yourself for the next one.

    Is a 3 night stay in Big Bend (no charging) crazy?

    Watch the wind! A strong West Texas wind will drop your range faster than a Baptist heading to Luby's. :) While now exceeding 105 pages, there is some great advice in the Supercharger - Fort Stockton, Texas thread. Check out the 14-50r plug in at the alpinewindmillhouse.com and two at The...
