    Tesla Model Y Glass Roof Sunshade

    LOL, had the exact same thoughts. I did purchase the Topfit Sunshade since it's been hot here in Los Angeles this summer, but was undecided about tinting the roof. To my surprise, the sunshade does make a noticeable difference in reducing the cabin heat. Will be useful in the summer but plan...

    Basenor Sunshade for Model Y - super helpful! Reduced temps 20 degrees!

    Please post some real life pictures of your product. Other manufacturers with the one piece design have resorted to using magnets to get rid of the middle sag or switched to a 2-piece design. Interested in how your product differs in design to eliminate the sag.

    Valet wheel damage

    I used this company to repair three wheels on my Model S that had significant curb rash. Repair was done in my garage and the wheels looked brand new afterwards. https://yelp.to/NH7yBVIbxjb

    Opinions on this paint defect

    100% agree with the above. I noticed a couple minor paint issues during my delivery inspection as well. The shop that installed my PPF discovered a few more small issues but I told them not to show me. Ignorance is bliss, haha.

    Homelink Module installation and programming (2021 MYP)

    Yeah, I was surprised to see this feature missing on my MYP.

    12v switched power for Radar Detector

    I'm keeping an eye on this thread. I'm currently just using a 11ft cord (tucked into the A pillar panel) between my V1G2 and the 12V outlet. Would love a better solution, especially since the 12V outlet doesn't seem to power down when sentry mode is active.

    Is anyone using Tesla’s Model Y Trunk Storage Bins?

    My bins arrived. Interesting how the left side dropped right in but the right side bin took some effort to fit properly. Thought something was wrong until I saw posts in the other thread with the same complaints. Satisfied with the purchase.

    APPALLING quality control; alignment!

    Sorry about the issue, but your mistake was not putting in a service ticket right away. Tesla is pretty clear that you have up to 100 miles to submit any delivery day concerns. I had a similar issue regarding timing of the service visit, as the first available appointment was 3.5 weeks out...

    There are no words - Irresponsible driver crashes Model Y into building

    That Model Y definitely had Acceleration Boost.

    Tesla trade in : Last minute odometer request?

    Well, of course every situation is going to be different. In my case, Carvana's offer was $3k higher than Vroom. Good luck...hope you enjoy the Model Y!

    Tesla trade in : Last minute odometer request?

    My experience with Carvana was great. Sold a car to them back in June.

    Y Performace vs LR?

    100% agree. What feels “comfortable” is totally subjective.

    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    Haven't heard anything yet as well. Maybe we can try creating a service request via the app. Hoping the service centers have some updated information.

    Y Performace vs LR?

    That's your preference. I prefer the performance benefits over 23 miles of extra range. Glad we have options.

    Are there any radar detector mounts for the Model Y?

    As a temporary solution, I just used the OEM mount and purchased a longer 11 ft power cord. Tucked the wire into the panels (easy since the power cord wire is flat) and ran it into the 12V outlet in the center console. Ran into a couple issues/concerns. First, I'm concerned that the OEM mount...
