    DIY: Model Y Painted Calipers

    I brushed mine while still mounted. Decent enough with the wheels on.

    The Anti-Ceramic coating thread

    I have watched a lot of videos explaining how great ceramic coating is. I myself even have one applied on my previous car. However, these benefits are so minuscule to a point it became irrelevant. An average car owner have the car for couple years then switch to another. They won't even see the...

    The Anti-Ceramic coating thread

    PPF is helpful but ceramic coating is just a gimmick: making the paint slick (hydrophobic) and glossy. It doesn't really protect the paint.

    Decided to paint Apollo wheels and calipers

    I wonder what kind of paint they used. Most paint on the market require at least close to an hour or more between coats. I painted mine myself and took half a day doing two wheels at a time.

    Model 3 ABS carbon fiber spoiler in Bay Area

    Hi, I purchased this model 3 spoiler thinking it will fit my new Model Y. Turned out it's not. So I'm selling it for whoever is interested in changing the look of their model 3 for cheap. Item location in Bay Area.

    Clean Vehicle Rebate Project (CVRP) California VIN not recognized

    For those that took delivery of the 2021 MY in California, are you able register for the $2000 rebate? I tried doing my and this is what I got after filling out the form: "The VIN entered on your application does not indicate the vehicle is a Tesla Model Y. Please verify your VIN, selected...

    Picking up tomorrow ...

    I'm still waiting for the confirmation text saying my car is ready. This schedule is ridiculous. 9am to 6pm ... Yes, they made me pay online first prior to deliver.

    Picking up tomorrow ...

    Pending pickup tomorrow in Freemont. They say I'm eligible for express touchless pickup. Keys are in the card and I have to accept delivery in the app in order to unlock it. How do I go through the check list without accepting it first?

    PPF prior to any exterior adjustments?

    Have all repairs or mods done before applying PPF since they may replace the panels.

    Thinking of Preordering TSportline 20" TS5 w/ X-Ice. Anyone else?

    Tirerack.com and CarID.com If you are shopping for new wheels and tires then you just need to look at the bolt pattern as the most important number which is 5x114.3 and offset +40 to +50 (stock is +45) If you are buying wheels only and will use the stock tires then you should follow the spec of...

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    Just got an email stating projected delivery date is 10/21 and for me to finish paying for the car. I still have to wait for confirmation text. How likely for it to be delayed since I will have to take that day off work. Pick up in Freemont.

    Thinking of Preordering TSportline 20" TS5 w/ X-Ice. Anyone else?

    If you'd like ease of buying then yes, these will do great since it is built specifically for Tesla. If you want best bang for your buck and a bit more unique look then a bit of research will go a long way. Some of the website allows you to shop by car and take all the guess work out.

    Thinking of Preordering TSportline 20" TS5 w/ X-Ice. Anyone else?

    May be it is just personal taste but I find those wheels ugly. There are plenty of 20" options from reputable websites such as Tirerack and CarID....

    Frunk auto open?

    Hi guys, I'm waiting delivery for my MY. As I remembered during the test drive, the frunk isnt auto open. Has anyone successful mod.that? I don't need a full powered frunk but just a spring strong enough to open it fully?

    Did you get your VIN and delivery schedule the same day?

    Vendor in Bay Area, CA ?!?

    I've seen active vendors in Texas and Los Angeles. Any vendors in the Bay Area for vinyl wrap, clear bras ...etc... ?

    Wiki Teslike Model Y Survey & Order Tracker Spreadsheet

    I agree, changing your config doesn't necessary mean you will be waiting longer. Installing tow hitch is most likely aftermarket so they will have to specify a car for you before installing the hitch. I changed my color and that even sped up my process. Keep bugging your SA too and be nice about...

    Buying Nema adapter online or instore

    Hi guys, I just received my VIN so delivery is in the horizon. Should I buy the nema adapter online via Tesla website or can I just buy it at the delivery center? How long for online to ship?

    Just got an email from my SA and " I am actually seeing that you are predicted for delivery within the next week! Keep an eye out on your phone for updates from the delivery center." I haven't even gotten a VIN yet. Anyone experienced this before?

    Just changed my color choice

    Original order date 10/03 for: White/Black LR-AWD No Tow/FSD Pick up at Freemont, CA SA said the car may be finished by 10/23 After all the horrid stories regarding mismatch bumpers on white (even on the Oct builds) it seems that almost 90% you get this problem and I certainly don't want to deal...

    DIY: Model Y Painted Calipers

    Awesome work. This is what I planned to do when I get mine Blue MY. Will paint it blue. Only drawback is the limit of jack points. It seems no matter what, you can only do one side (2 wheels) at a time since there is a maximum of 4 jack points on the MY. Any way to get all 4 wheels at the same...

    Just changed my order to different color. Original color was white but after all the mismatch bumpers I rather be safe than sorry. Wonder how long that pushes me back regarding delivery date :(

    Brake caliper?

    There shouldn't be any problems doing so. Breaks calibers are the same everywhere no matter what car they are on. I'd say use a high temp paint and just brush on or bag everything and spray on. The main concern is how you are going to jack it up and keep it up. I have a set of floor jack and...

    Trying to make sense over PPF and Ceramic Coat ...

    Based on my past experience, best to do front ppf and then ceramic on top. Just get a cheap ceramic if you like to take care of your car since after certain amount of washes, the ceramic will be gone no matter how "excellent" the ceramic is.

    Trying to make sense over PPF and Ceramic Coat ...

    Agree. I used to own a Genesis G80 and only did partial front. That was only about $500 making it the best investment on the car so far but 7k is just plain ridiculous no matter how good the film is. It is also one time use once you peel the film away anyway. Business is hard.

    Trying to make sense over PPF and Ceramic Coat ...

    Hi guys, Can someone please shed some lights on my regarding those super expensive package to install PPF and Ceramic Coat? I have seen some places ask up to 7k for installing PPF and Ceramic Coat. Are Tesla owners so rich that shops can just ask way over a reasonable rate and still get people...

    Hi guys, I'm new to the forum and have a MY on order. I'm setting up to install a charging outlet in my garage and wonder which is best plug to install.
