    Are software/feature suggestions possible?

    The camera views on the screen does show the rear wheels (view from the front wing) at least on model y. What I need is a view of front wheel. An in joke for any Reading owners. Do not try to go through the Bells on the Theale canal bridge followed immediately by the kerbs under the M4. That...

    Do they wash the cars that come off the ship in Southampton?

    At Southampton my tyres & wheels were covered in silicone tyre gloss - which I made them wash off! So they do try! My avatar above was collection day.

    Clear-coat problem on matt black wheel.

    Not by me and had it from new. Unless Tesla refurbed before delivery.

    Clear-coat problem on matt black wheel.

    I know but it just seems odd that these 2 paint layers don't bond and the lacquer is brittle. I am sure working from existing damage I could chip the whole lot off the wheel if i tried so its hard to imagine something can get under the lacquer when it could be cm away? I have seen it on...

    Clear-coat problem on matt black wheel.

    I kerbed my wheel in multi story 3 weeks ago. I decided to leave any diy repair it until the weather improves. Today I noticed the clear-coat had flaked off about 1-2cm from the damage. When touched the clear just continued to crack off. Does this sound like a manufacturing defect?

    Updated to 2023.44.30 (cabin camera enforcement) Anyway to roll back??

    Maybe we should get 'credits' every time we have to bail out the car when it forgets to turn on the wipers in a storm!

    Sometimes IO will overrun the 5:30am slot but it does not mean you are being charged peak rate. Before stopping check for new IO slots.

    phone key to open trunk issue

    I know this is a few months later...mine is still rubbish. I have marked up picture to show receiver location. It is behind bumper. The receiver needs plastic to prevent loss of signal. I could hold my phone on bumper and it still does not pick it up!

    How many people are having connectivity issues?

    If you always use the hotspot...Set your hotspot details exactly same as home network. When you drive away it "should" seamlessly flip. Use some app like Carspot to turn hotspot on & off.

    Creaking tailgate - mobile technician visit

    Anyone know anything about Tesla changing the tailgate hinges. Apparently there has been 2 modified versions since the one without a grub screw (in the middle). I guess I am on version 1. I saw a video on here about bending hinges..news to me.

    Creaking tailgate - mobile technician visit

    If you push on the closed tailgate just above the lights you can create the noise for elimination of doubt. I was driving myself nuts until the SC tech cam out and went straight to it!! I was convinced it was the rear doors/windows. Its a known issue and he said in the US owners have been...

    Maybe we should get a "-" nag credit each time we have to override something which should be hands off and clearly making our awareness of the road ahead less safe.

    Can someone explain to me and Pink why the speed on the display are 'sometimes' not related to the cars actions.

    TACC random slowing down

    Sorry I thought tesla did use OSM - cheap data etc. I agree though OSM is good for a huge amount of data but its the 'newbie change mistakes' that got me thinking the way I did. Most of these sessions of the car slowing are short lived so they are quickly being corrected. The posts above 2...

    TACC random slowing down

    Sorry but I am confused here. I have experienced this more recently and my blame went straight to mapping. If the car is slowing for no visual reason then why should vision be blamed? I have long suspected, as this problem has been there since ~2020 for me - which pre dated sign recognition...

    Ultrasonics cannot see lines! These are not mutually exclusive. The 360 is very good so far but its got a long way to go. I hope Tesla realise this and give the update to everyone.

    Cold legs and other hvac oddities

    Ok this is not getting better with the cold weather, the Coandă spacers working a treat by the way, but I believe we have something else at play. Even with the vehicle up to temperature there is a really cold draft by my (rhd) right knee. It also feels (wet finger test) to be cold air being...

    [uk specific] Software 2023.32

    Missed your post. Hope it comes back. It still works but the setting can only be at exactly the speed limit. I like to have a 6% addition on the long press. I suppose I will have to get used to it, I always thought it was a beneficial bug!!

    [uk specific] Software 2023.32

    32.6 has changed the Cruise Control setting logic. For the past 5 years i have been able to set current speed (quick press down stalk) AND a %offset to speed limit (press and hold). Now its one or the other.

    From the rear, which is what we are talking about, it is in the centre of the rear bumper (uk). Under the trunk lock.

    Cold legs and other hvac oddities

    I have posted this here somewhere but now lost the thread!! It has been noted that you can get fingers in passenger side vent (rhd) but not drivers side. At service centre I sat in several heat-pump Y/3's all the same having smaller vent height on drivers side - and air could not be directed...

    Scraping noise over bumps

    Like I said "...less scrapes, more speed". Or is it "More haste, less speed" whatever! If you go too slow the mud flaps come down crunch onto the speed bump itself. I have a viewing spot at my local Costa. I sit there watching drivers trash their mud flaps on a simple black/yellow rubber...

    Creaking tailgate - mobile technician visit

    Didn't work, gummi pfledge works for a bit but I am sure its more for rejuvenation of old rubber. It dries dry🤦. (Prices & quantities vary shop around). Silicon oil helps but likely to spread onto paintwork. These seals squeak from outside but sound like our creak inside

    Scraping noise over bumps

    My Y still catches some speed bump. It is better to go a bit faster as in my case its the rebound that makes the mudflaps catch the bump itself. I assume you cannot see any dropped covers under car.

    Creaking tailgate - mobile technician visit

    Same issue today. Tech admitted tesla are aware of this problem. He recreated it immediately by pushing tailgate down above each rear light. Agreed it was the outer seal but advised against lube / gummi pfledge when I asked. I hope this means a revised seal may be in the pipeline. Meanwhile...

    I was similarly treated today at Winchester (bit unfair, tech spent ages with me in various new models 3s & Ys all had similarly poor air flow and the gap on d/side consistently smaller than p/side). What does it take to get a fault recognised. This thread alone shows similar concerns have...

    Not sure I'm enjoying my MY after 8 months

    No it/he didn't believe me. It was cc. It is made worse when you start using accelerator pedal when slowing down it lets you control the speed of car for a bit then takes over. Usually at roundabout. I am sure its not just me.

    Not sure I'm enjoying my MY after 8 months

    If you want a real "my car is trying to kill me". I have a slip road onto a 70mph A Road from a 30 limit. If i have Cruise Control 'on' in the 30 limit the instant i get to the 'national speed limit' sign and merge the car speeds up to 70mph. Before anyone asks the cc has not previously...

    Not sure I'm enjoying my MY after 8 months

    Your comment about the roundabout is interesting. I guess you are coming from an ice car which you have to use the brakes to stop! What you experienced is cruse control memory. Most ice cars drop cc below 20mph. I get it a lot. This is what happens. Say you are have cc on at 30mph. The...

    Sanity check model 3 vents

    Hi, I am starting to think this may have something to do with the gap where the horizontal air comes out. On passenger side I can get my finger in but on drivers side I cannot. The smaller height increases the air speed and makes it harder to control (vertical bleed) and makes the air follow...
