    Model Y - Hands On

    As you can see, it isn't a whole lot better. However it doesn't hit the light now, so vibrations won't damage the paint any longer. They touched up the paint as well, so unless I point it out, you wouldn't notice. Service Manager claimed it was within 'Tesla spec' now, but that sure doesn't...

    Model Y - Hands On

    I have had a service call specifically for the rear hatch. It started catching on the passenger side and dropped back closed. Had a service tech come to my house and he resolved the catching, but the passenger edge was still touching on the right edge. They requested that I bring in the car...

    Homelink on MY?

    As far as I know, it is just an integrated garage door opener. Like most things Tesla, it goes beyond what everyone else does (like Saghost mentions). I just had it installed on my MY yesterday, a Tesla technician came to my house and installed it. So between the advanced capabilities, AND...

    Model Y - Hands On

    One of my first trips in my M3 was 188 miles to the first super charger and we BARELY made it (8 miles of range), exact same trip actually. We did have aero wheels on. The M3 was charged fully, showing 308miles of range when we left. Granted we drove between 78-82mph, it was around 32 degrees...

    Model Y - Hands On

    I typically am in areas, or with people, that I can't test the fast cornering. But what I have done seemed very solid to me and similar to our Model 3 AWD. I haven't driven a Model S, so can't compare to it. This is so subjective that I have been hesitant to comment, but I think anyone would...

    Model Y - Hands On

    Looks the same to me, but haven't compared them side by side. They both look awesome.

    Model Y - Hands On

    The range seems very similar to our Model 3 (18mo old, AWD with Aero wheels). I think all the improvements in range were just mitigated by the heavier car. We did a 186 mile drive yesterday and at the destination only had about 15 miles range left. I had cruise set to 80 most of the time and...

    Model Y - Hands On

    Yes to both, the doors and front cabin feet areas are lit.

    Model Y - Hands On

    Measurements were listed back a few pages. Post #69 & 82 on page 4 & 5. Oh and your dogs view will be the same as the second row passengers, you know his/her head will be handing over the seat!

    Model Y - Hands On

    Haven't been driving too much since the corona virus, but I will be doing a road trip this weekend (300 miles and back). So the items that need me to be driving, we should compile a list so I can test them. But for this one, I am pretty sure I would have noticed on my small trip last weekend...

    Model Y - Hands On

    Just got my second charger today, version 3. Thought someone would want to see the difference in size. It is smaller in every dimension, including cable thickness. I will be installing it on the opposite side of my garage door, but that will be a project for next week.

    Model Y - Hands On

    Yes, by me. My M3 has an obvious green tint and tracer lines, the MY doesn't, and didn't dim when I was driving at night.

    Model Y - Hands On

    Note on ground clearance, I just measured my M3 (AWD) and MY (Perf) and I got mixed results. MY at rear jack point: 6" M3 at rear jack point: 5 3/8" MY in center, beneath front door handle: 6 1/8" M3 in center, beneath front door handle: 5 1/8" My M3 is 18 months old, so perhaps there is a bit...

    Model Y - Hands On

    Update: Jack points are the same and use the same size pucks on the M3 & MY. Not a big shocker, but since someone asked, there are likely others that wanted to know.

    Thanks, looks like they updated the wording and confirms that it is an addition.
