    Windshield - is this normal?

    Yep took a couple times until they could see what was wrong, but ultimately they replaced the windshield under warranty. Turned out the windshield was warped a bit too.

    Motion sickness?

    I have no regen option either - can't disable or turn it lower. BUT, Chill mode feels smoother overall, so I recommend you try that. I've had passengers in my Model Y that get carsick, so I feel for you here. Between the rough suspension, fast acceleration, hard pullback from regen braking, it's...

    2021.4.15.12 now...?

    My autowipers have been pretty bad since I've had my Model Y, but since the .18 update they have been firing a lot more often in sunlight. Disabled auto so I didn't look like an idiot driving around with wipers running in clear skies. Interesting that Green called that out.

    In case you haven't seen yet - leaked v11 pics from refreshed Model S

    Haha ugh so true. Recent months have been such a let down from an update perspective. I realize they are hyper focused on FSD, but come on. Majority of owners do not have that and just something useful other than farts and dog animations.

    Windshield stone chips

    I noticed their windshield glass gets beat up easily. I had mine replaced by Tesla because of some warping, but the new one after a month has lots of micro scratches/marks all over it. It isn't "clear" like other vehicles in the past. I guess soft paint, soft glass are a thing.

    Preferred Floor Mats MY

    Hmm when did they redesign the front seats? Mine was manufactured in Nov 2020 (Dec 2020 delivery), and it's considered a 2021. They fit very nicely. I received my TAPTES floor mats in late Nov 2020. I'll add this info to the description for sure.

    Preferred Floor Mats MY

    I have the TAPTES floor mats and love them. Just did a little review of them if it helps anyone make a decision

    send navigation route from phone to Tesla

    Not sure what you mean, but I open Google Maps on my phone, search for where I want to go, route it, then click the share button below it and share to the Tesla app and it appears in my car.

    Mud flap effectiveness after 1.5k miles (or lack of)

    Here's our 2015 Subaru Crosstrek as an example. Has the same type of plastic trim (different finish/material it seems) in the same location. After six years and over 100k miles it has zero marks on it. Just some schmutz that I wiped away towards the bottom to show the surface but no damage...

    Mud flap effectiveness after 1.5k miles (or lack of)

    Yep. Totally sandblasted. I'm actually bringing it in to the service center this week to have them look at something else unrelated. They already told me to just go buy PPF and mud flaps to keep the paint damage from happening. Let's be honest the only true fix is to drop another $6k to fully...

    Mud flap effectiveness after 1.5k miles (or lack of)

    These are the flaps I'm using now 4 Garde-boues Tesla Model Y - I had some clips that my ZL1 flaps came with that I used to attach them instead of drilling into the trim. Worked perfectly. Also, only using in the front. I should have gone with these from the start as the ZL1's were too sleek...

    Tesla Rear Emblem Change

    That looks really good. May do the same. Did you replace the front shiny T with matte black too? Edit: Seems they don't deliver to the US, so will look for another option

    Mercedes EQS Sedan: Rival to Tesla Model S

    The hyperscreen is pretty damn cool, but looks so archaic at the same time. Sort of like the rear screens, dated tablet, and clumsy looking UI. There's definitely things Tesla can learn from it though - like the spatial recognition.

    Service Center Issue

    I had some questionable panel gaps at my Dec 2020 pickup, called them out to SC and they said they were within spec. I asked what that even means and they said it has to be 5mm either direction of spec. Regarding my most recent visit, they haven't done anything or followed up with me. Honestly...

    Service Center Issue

    With Tesla, you have to be persistent and vocal. Especially since the only way to talk to service is through the app/messaging (which is freaking bat sh*t). I got mine back from service last week and had dirt all over my white seats, a used face mask in the front passenger footwell, and a dark...
