    Do the 2021’s have a softer ride

    Here's a piece of info: I've asked 2 friends who've recently bought MY's (2021) if they perceived them as noisy or harsh and they both said no. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to ride in their cars to compare, but these are both guys in their 60's who've had decent cars for a while. I think...

    Aftermarket tow hitch

    I looked into it: the Ecohitch is $315-350k. I've been quoted $400 and $650 for installation. I watched the eco hitch installation video and it's a major process, removing the whole rear bumper/side assembly and rear lights. I'm hesitant to do it with the final savings being $200-400 with the...

    Trailer hitch for model y

    I'm looking for a recommended shop in Berkeley, CA for the same thing. Any recommendations? Thank you.

    Rear View Visibility

    I think it depends what you’re sensitive to. If it bothers you then it’s an issue, we just drive the car and don’t think about it.

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    Reading the comments here I would like to elaborate on my observations. Obviously new shocks do not totally change a car’s NVH profile. To illustrate with an example: Hitting a nasty freeway joint. Previously the shock and noise would literally be painfully loud and jarring. Now most of that is...

    I don't get the appeal of the lower car. Looks weird to me...what's the point here?

    Blind spot, close calls - do I need camera adjusted?

    I am not so sure that the Blindspot monitor is the worst ever. It is not in the usual spot, but I find it works quite well especially since they redid the screen size with the update a few months ago. That said, everyone should be looking over their shoulder before they change lanes. No...

    Blind spot, close calls - do I need camera adjusted?

    For the Suma mirrors, which one do I get? I want the blue and defroster. Why is there a "turn signal" choice? I don't think my 2020 has a turn signal in the mirror, did that change? Thanks!

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    Hmm...well that's not how I'm perceiving it. It's fundamentally different, not just interior rattles. Most of the loud noises over bumps are simply gone or dramatically reduced. I don't know if this is what is really happening, but it seems like previously the bump would hit the wheel, go...

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    I forgot to add the obligatory wife comment: she is very happy and enjoys the car much more as well. Going into this she was very skeptical and to Her credit said the car was fine but now she is beyond pleased. Basically the car feels like it always should have, like a nice driving normal car...

    This is completely incorrect. The new suspension has alleviated almost all of the noise problem. The main booming noises are when you hit a sharp bump and the stock suspension doesn’t absorb it at all and it was like a bomb going off in the back of the car, “Bloom“! The car is still not the...

    It is definitely better, but it will not be as good as a model S or model X as they simply have more advanced suspension systems. If you are OK with your suspension as is, it might not make that much of a difference. I had an early model Y and as many people have commented they probably already...

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    Honestly, that has never been an issue for me. When my wife drives, I put my head back and take a nap so hard for me to say. The new suspension is a little bit smoother for sure, but driving on a normal freeway that has never been an issue For me. Therefore I am hesitant to give any opinion on...
