    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.

    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...

    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!

    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...

    Test drive - LR Vs Performance

    Buying the performance variant of any Tesla is definitely driven by emotions and not logic. But at the end of the day, I haven't seen a MYP owner say they regretted their purchase and got the LR version instead. Nice we have options though.

    PPF Head and Fog Lights?

    It's like PPF for any other part of the car. Not a necessity, but definitely falls into the "nice to have" category. Great way to keep the housing s looking brand new.

    Windows tinting questions

    20% front windows and 70% on all the rear factory privacy glass. Didn't tint the windshield or roof. I also debated between 30% vs 20% for the front. Ended up going with 20% to get the closest match to the rears.

    Windows tinting questions

    The 3M supposedly gives off a bluish hue. That's why my installer recommended Xpel ceramic for a better match since it's a charcoal/black hue.

    Test drive - LR Vs Performance

    Due to the larger Uberturbine wheels on the MYP.

    Test drive - LR Vs Performance

    The MYLR is definitely the more logical choice due to the better ride and range. AB is a fantastic option. Would have been a day 1 purchase for me if I would have gone that route. I always regretted not getting a performance version of my Model S. Guess that's why I ended up getting the MYP.

    Giga Texas Updates

    The new headlights have the potential to benefit from the advanced matrix capabilities (although if/when this happens is anyone's guess). Pretty sure if you asked 100 new owners waiting for MYLR deliveries, not one would be disappointed that their MYLR came with the updated headlights.
  24. ucsdsig

    Test drive - LR Vs Performance

    I have a MYP and a good family friend has MYLR with AB. We've had the opportunity to drive each other's cars numerous times. Bottom line, you can "feel" the difference. Whether or not the MYP is worth the $5k premium (or $3k with the inductions) is tough to answer. Both are great options.

    Tesla Shields mudflap review.

    Thanks for the review. Interesting. When I asked the vendor how (or if) their mudflaps differed from the competition, they were pretty emphatic in their reply. Stating in part: "First of all, ours is a bit longer and offers more coverage. 2nd we use a sturdier type of plastic." So is this not...

    I finally changed my seat cover to the white I wanted!

    I bought some seat covers on Amazon. Liked the look but hated the feel. Took them off after few days of driving. I assume the leather or vegan leather covers would feel nicer. Too bad I forgot to return the covers during the return period.

    Anyone regret not opting for performance?

    Some people don't like the aesthetics of the Geminis (especially with aero caps). Just like others don't like the uberturbines because of the range hit and rougher ride.
