    Stock tires at 4/32" after 5300 miles?

    I have the 20 in inductions with the Goodyear OEM tires on a 2020 LR. 8700 miles over about 13 months. 4/32 remaining, getting closer to replacement. I am not particularly hard on these tires either. They've chewed down faster than my tires on my previous Model S. Course I am seeing others...

    My new 2021 Model Y just rear-ended pretty bad

    Yeah, Arizona permits "loss of use" but it is usually compensated for in the form of a comparable rental car for the length of the repair, whatever that is. If they provide a rental, then there likely isn't any significant "loss of use" to compensate. Tesla and the typical extended repair...

    My new 2021 Model Y just rear-ended pretty bad

    Yes, do not let the DV claim go. I've had pretty good success with these. In fact the best DV claim I handled (in terms of recovery) was on a Tesla.

    My new 2021 Model Y just rear-ended pretty bad

    I'll go out on a limb here and wholeheartedly disagree with this. Public adjusters make money by taking a percentage of a recovery. This is a run-of-the-mill auto accident. The property damage is not typically difficult to assess, and in the hundreds of claims I have handled as an attorney...

    Unhappy with FSD sales and pricing

    I get that. But it also says "future" at least a couple of times. So what FSD is defined as NOW, in terms of that which they offer NOW, is what Tesla says it is, and may be everchanging. They state it has the "hardware" to do it--and I suspect if later it is determined the hardware isn't good...

    Unhappy with FSD sales and pricing

    Well, and, isn't "FSD" kind of a "term of art"? It isn't something really defined anywhere. So right now FSD is just kind of what Tesla says it is.

    Unhappy with FSD sales and pricing

    I paid for FSD once and pretty much got nothing for it. Replaced it with a new Tesla and opted not to buy it. At 10K it is particularly ludicrous for what it actually offers. And yes, even incremental releases would keep the masses happy and on the edge of chairs waiting for what's next. The...

    Pretty sure you have an arbitration clause in your purchase order. Just FYI.

    Model Y Snow Chains

    He doesn't have the Geminis with the Aeros. These are the 20 in induction wheels. There is not anything to take off on those.

    Model Y Snow Chains

    He stated the ones Tesla recommends/sells, so presumably these... Model Y 19"/20" Snow Chains

    Windshield distortion on Y

    I have this too. I have my windshield tinted though, and always thought it must have been the tint. It isn’t bad enough that I care very much, but every now and then I catch a glimpse of the distortion.

    Do you regret paying for Full Self Driving?

    For those of you with EAP, is it 7k to go FSD now?

    If anyone bought and then refunded AB, will you PM me for a question?

    Do you regret paying for Full Self Driving?

    I don’t feel bad at all. If anything I feel bad about having paid for it on my prior S and getting zero real return. Now, at 8k and no promise when even the new beta will meet the masses, it’s just too much money to drop on a maybe, especially on a tech product that will have to drop in price...

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    Does anyone have an idea (guess?, rumor?) when this beta will ultimately come out for the FSD masses? I’m relatively sure many of the “careful driver” folks that were selected for this beta are just “influencers” selected to talk it up. I’d hate to plunk down 8k to find out this new release...

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    If FSD followed ME, I would plunk down for it now, and have no cars other than Tesla for the rest of my driving years. I previously put it on my S and kind of saw no real upside for the investment.

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    I did notice his message said had the "~" symbol in front of it. Seems to be making the amount somewhat ambiguous...? And it seems the day isn't Monday anymore, but Thursday...

    Less for older cars? Do you mean it would be worth less if you put it on an older car?

    Accelerated pedal cover

    That is weird. I’m absolutely certain neither my Y or S did. I added aluminum pedals to both cars.

    Just another disappointing aftermarket experience

    This is the first time I’ve personally heard of anyone having an issue with AO. And it’s certainly not my experience with them over probably 15 transactions. During business hours they even have live chat—try that, they’ve always gotten back quickly on there even if they can’t chat right away.

    Just another disappointing aftermarket experience

    I second this. AO has been awesome for everything I’ve bought from them.

    Accelerated pedal cover

    There is no factory cover on the accelerator pedal. That is normal. Was the same on my prior S.

    3 to a Y...back to a 3?

    I’ve got a Y and honestly I don’t feel like I really drive an SUV. I know it technically is, but to me it feels like a sedan. I considered the M3, but being just north of 6ft tall it just felt too small. Weird because other than seat height I don’t *think* M3 and Y are really much different...

    I’m pretty convinced I’ll keep this but I am curious...if you were to “return” it, is it available again for purchase? I know it can only be “returned” once, which makes me think it will be available again.

    I suspect that 3-5 years from now we may well be talking about a completely different Y.

    Induction wheels - flat tire happens - stock tires aren't made or carried anywhere

    Like you, I tried and failed to find this tire anywhere. Hopefully Tesla carries them, although to be honest, in the event of a flat tire I'd kind of hate to have to wait on Tesla service since they're so backed up.

    No Logo?

    Are those the Abstract Ocean letters on the back? I think they look good...better than the original T.

    Vendor Want to remove the Model Y emblems?...Think again.

    According to Abstract Ocean, the pre-Covid cars have holes. Around April that changed. AO sells a T E S L A badge package that replaces the rear T, and that’s where they say that.

    Need Financing Advise...

    That’s a good rate (either of them) for a long term auto loan. There is a good argument to be made to keeping your cash in the bank, particularly during the uncertainty of the pandemic. You can always choose to add to your payments if finances allow. Seems like you’ve calculated the TOTAL...

    Upgrade to Enhanced AutoPilot before Sept 30

    Today. It was available same as everyone else until today. Now, on and off as an option. So if anyone bought EAP then canceled it, did FSD go back to 8k ?

    Oddly enough, EAP comes and goes on my list of options to buy. Both on the APP and on the website.

    Upgrade to Enhanced AutoPilot before Sept 30

    Someone at Tesla somewhere needs to get into the office to make manual changes, it seems...didn't automatically disappear which is a bit of a surprise. Also a surprise: somehow I resisted this. Might be more interested in the performance boost.

    Seems to me it will be inversive with the amount you jump on the "go" pedal. You aren't going to get a "number" on this because it 100% depends on you.

    Performance Boost Available

    Sure. If the car is totaled or stolen and you want the insurer to pay you for the value of EAP in your claim payment, they're taking more risk, and the premium goes up. Can't say what the reasonable value of that protection should be, but, yeah, it will be higher.

    It’s going to depend on your carrier. Many companies are slow to figure out how to deal with cars like these where you can purchase intangible (non-physical) factory upgrades post-purchase. Some will issue a “custom” parts endorsement (for an additional premium), some won’t. Anyone who is...

    Is there any chance this upgrade will end up deteriorating parts of the car that much faster? Tires for sure. But what about the motors? I presume Tesla has figured out it is safe for the first 50K miles, but do you all think any part of the car will deteriorate faster over time? I frankly...
