    Tesla Wall Charger vs Charge Point vs Juice Box

    The wage/apprenticeship requirement may effectively prevent most consumers from claiming this credit. How many electricians installing residential NEMA 14-50 plugs or EVSEs would provide suitable proof of meeting this requirement?

    Tesla Wall Charger vs Charge Point vs Juice Box

    That would be great news if true.

    Tesla Wall Charger vs Charge Point vs Juice Box

    The Alternative Fuel Vehicle Refueling Property Credit (form 8911) is not applicable to equipment installed after 12/31/2021.

    2018-2020 vs 2022 Wireless charging pad

    Tesla introduced the "new" console to the Model Y in early 2021. Ys made prior to that date had the earlier version of the center console with a flip-up wireless phone charging pad, and two USB ports at the front.

    He's 51 years old - that change may already be relatively far along. The Tesla software team is probably much younger but I wonder how many of them own/drive Tesla vehicles.

    CCS1 Adapter

    I'm in Utah. I believe the next-closest SC is 350 miles away in Boise. That's an easy "nah... I'll wait a bit longer" decision. Even a CCS-enabled ECU and some beer leaves it a hard sell! For those with multiple SCs near(ish)by, definitely 'shop around' if needed.

    CCS1 Adapter

    I tried this with a service request via the Tesla app. The local service center (I think) called me later to state that they can't do it. They even claimed that a new firmware update is needed to enable the adapter - and that the update isn't available yet. I believe that's incorrect.

    The last few updates do appear to pause or be delayed at the 50% point. But all have resumed and completed the download within an hour or so iirc. Progress bars do have a tendency to be woefully inaccurate - so I wouldn't be surprised to find that "50%" isn't 50%. Or that "50%" is the point...

    I opened another Tesla by mistake!

    Just a quick note... unfolded side mirrors doesn't necessarily indicate an unlocked vehicle. There is a setting to disable the auto-folding. I think it's intended to be used during cold winters when the mechanism might freeze up - but the setting can be enabled at any time.

    Update 2022.20.x — Tesla Release Notes

    In the USA it does. And has done so for quite a while - about 2 years iirc. But I believe this is new to the UK and some other areas.

    Anyone hearing "SEGA" when the car boots up?

    This actually isn't the first time I've seen this very question. But I don't remember where I saw the prior discussions and can't find any links to them. IIRC there was a guess that it might happen because the owner had played Sonic recently (prior to the reboot), and the system remembered...

    Battery Charging Conflict - Owners Manual vs. Service Tech

    This could also be luck 'o the draw - one battery manufactured with slightly better components than the other. All batteries are not made equal. And the sample size is too small to assume anything from the results.

    Best Model Y Cup Holder Accessory?

    I've used a spring-loaded insert and also a silicone insert. The latter is a much better solution for my usage. It might lead to fit issues with some large cups or bottles - but I haven't encountered that. Less shaking of the cups/bottles in the holder; also a bit less noise. Easy to clean...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    They stated a few months back that they'll add support for Bluetooth game controllers. But haven't stated when. It might be another month or two. Or might be another year or two.

    Fix for rear seat belt buckles rattling against the side of the car

    Yes - that's where I've had buckle rattle in my 2021 MYLR. I'm usually alone in the vehicle. I've considered leaving the passenger-side belt buckled up when not in use. But don't know if that might lead to some loosening/detensioning of the belt over time.
