    When the ACTUAL cybertruck pricing is released…,

    Because of how the sides are angled. The "handles" allow your hands to sit in a more natural position while treating your elbows on the door arm rest and center console, plus the flat bottom makes fsd so much easier. I just rest 2 fingers in it and it satisfy the wheel nag perfect. I was...

    New Model Y high pitch whining sound

    They typically "cannot"...really they refuse. There's been some that get it pushed, but most report that they get the car checked and they say "You are on the latest firmware', which is actually true for new deliveries. It's not a problem, it's intended. It's stable, good build that is mostly...

    1. That's not the discussion. He said when backing a trailer it was more dangerous. 2. Once you get used to the yoke, for me anyway, it's preferred. I find it much more comfortable and can take high speed/aggressive turns fine. I've never had a situation in all my years driving where I lost the...

    Model Y Owners - Preordering a Cybertruck

    Elon has said, by my count, 6 different times that there will be a Plaid version of the CT, that's why I said we can't be sure. I absolutely understand the difference and when he said it people said it was crazy. Will he use carbon-fiber wrapped motors? Probably not, but I could see them doing...

    But that doesn't make it unsafe. I back in to tight spaces daily in my MS, there's no issues. My only issue is you saying it's unsafe. I didn't state it was better for backing or that you are wrong for not liking it...calling it unsafe is incorrect.

    Model Y Owners - Preordering a Cybertruck

    Pedestal seats is a luxury? Interesting. We don't know what motors the quad will have or if it will have a Plaid variant or not. Much like the Platinum vs the XLT, the CT will have different options for different price points, but it's not targeting the typical work truck market. Just like the...

    Model Y Owners - Preordering a Cybertruck

    The MX/MS are not luxury vehicles by normal definitions. As someone in the MS thread said, cheap fast shells eith expensive batteries. I love my 2022 MS, the tech, speed, etc, but it's lacks refinements of Mercedes, etc. Also, the CT is getting every "luxury" that the X/S have. Much like the...

    Model Y Owners - Preordering a Cybertruck

    It absolutely factors in. Tesla claims that it's the reason for the previous increases, but as I stated, it's only half the story. Do you really believe that a 4 motor CT with all the things we've seen included will be at a lower price point than the Model X? I don't. We will find out soon...

    New Model Y high pitch whining sound

    That's Tesla. It's always been that way. Just wait until you later...Sometimes you'll go months without the newest update. Tesla releases in batches by car/region. You shouldn't pay such close attention to releases, otherwise you will obsess over them. Complaining or putting in service request...

    Yoke Blinkers not programmed as they should be

    It makes an audible noise, there's a huge camera shot on your screen, and a green blinking arrow...3 points where you can inspect. Change is difficult, 20,000 miles later and I still mash the center for the horn, but the turn signals for me, at least this aspect were a pretty easy change. I...

    Model Y Owners - Preordering a Cybertruck

    I never said the cost of steel resulted in a 20k increase. Those original prices were bullshit. Tesla took them off the site for a reason. Elon said they were increasing them. The 200% increase, as I said, was a reason they were making the CT at the time. Those were Elon's words. The 20k+...

    It sounds like you've never used it to me.

    Model Y Owners - Preordering a Cybertruck

    I got the 200% number from Elon when he was talking about the CT when he was talking about how expensive it will be to make it in today's environment on Lex's podcast and one of the reasons why the cannot make it...He probably quoted something similar to this: (Looks like they are around $851...

    Looking to possibly buy a 21/22 Model S. Worried there are so many being sold with low miles

    The MS LR is a better value. Still runs high 10s, longer range, better looking interior (the wood is 10x better than the CF, IMO)...but if you really like speed...nothing compares to the Plaid's speed.

    The supply issues and not being able to make more have very little to do with their pricing. They are selling used for 240K. The demand is there. The F150 Platnium with 300 miles of range is 95K and R1T, fully loaded is 98K...which has very little to do with the CT pricing. We are still 6...
