    Regenerative Braking chnged?

    Thanks for the replies; I learned a few things. I didn't know about the dots at the left end of the power bar on the screen. It's about 40 degrees F here this morning, & I have 4 dots showing. I'm going out in a little while, so I'll try the preconditioning & see what happens. @RoBoRaT ...

    Regenerative Braking chnged?

    Recently it seems that the regen braking on my MYP is not as aggressive as it had been. The car received the 2021.32.21 update in the last few weeks, but I can't say for sure that the braking change ocurred at the same time. At low speeds, approaching a traffic light for example, it seems...

    How should I treat the wood trim?

    I felt the same about the woodgrain trim piece in my MYP when I first saw it. (I assume you're referring to the piece going across the dash?) I used some 303 protectant on it, & I think it looks better; has a bit more of a luster to it, like it has a finish on it as opposed to bare wood. I'm...

    Door button press vs hold

    I've only had my MYP for a month or so, but a quick press always pops the door open sufficiently.

    Tesla shield business practice

    I got my MYP on 9/1 & continue to shop for floor mats, among other accessories. Tesla Shields' nonsense on this forum led me to cross them off my list early on. Maybe a good product, but just seem a bit too flaky for me to deal with.

    Has anybody mounted a Gen 3 Wall Connector inside their garage, and run the cable under the garage door for charging in the driveway?

    I do it all the time. Our garage doors have fairly thick soft bottom seals, which mush down over the cable with very little force.

    Lane Departure Warning Always On

    Sounds like how mine works.

    Can we manually set the charging speed to a lower rate in a Tesla Wall Connector?

    When you install & commission the wall connector, you set the maximum charging rate according to the circuit it’s on. There’s nothing to stop you from setting it to a lower rate if you prefer, as far as I can tell.

    Blue Calipers

    I'd do it. Which wheels?

    PPF By Rear Wheel

    I got the front mudguards for my new MY, and would like to add the PPF by the rear wheels as soon as I can. The Tesla Shop seems to be out of them for now, and the cost is $50, so I'm thinking of buying a small roll of the 3M film & cutting out my own pieces. I have no experience with this...

    model y front seat headrest modification

    What nonsense. I have no complaints with the headrests, build quality, "downscale" interiors, or anything else for that matter with my MYP. Tesla is selling everything they can produce as fast as they can.

    Pulled over for no front plate?

    I'm in NJ, where a front plate is required. $100 fine if enforced. My new ( 1 week old) Tesla MYP is the first car I've owned for which I'd REALLY like to not have the front plate. The front just isn't made for it, in my opinion. I see a lot of Teslas, and others as well, running around...

    Key & Profile question

    Thanks for the replies, I think I have it straightened out now. When I was first setting it up, I probably had both phones too close to the car, so the car just left the profile selection as it was from the last driver, as @srlawren mentioned. Now when I leave one of the phones further into the...

    Key & Profile question

    I've had our new MYP for a few days now, & starting to learn my way around all of its settings, etc. One thing that I can't get squared away is associating profiles with keys. I set up 2 profiles, one for my wife & one for myself. When we select a profile on the screen, the seats, mirror &...

    Carbon Spoiler Separating

    We picked up our new MYP yesterday, & all looked good. Today, after sitting in the sun, the ends of the carbon spoiler trim piece appear to be separating from the hatch. I attached a couple of pics; you can see that the left end is more separated than the right. Has anyone experienced...

    A thread for people not really doing much of anything to their car

    I’m with you, OP. We picked up our new MYP yesterday, and I don’t expect to add anything beyond rubber floor mats for the winter, and mud guards. And probably cargo carriers/organizers for the back & frunk for grocery runs, but I don’t count them as”mods”.

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    As I think I mentioned earlier in this thread, I ordered an MYP on 8/27 & received my VIN & EDD the next day. I have a 252 VIN, & I'm wondering why it appears to be so much lower than the numbers I've been seeing in this thread. Maybe it was a canceled order from someone? The delivery...

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    I haven't driven an MYP yet, first time will be on the way home, scheduled for this Wednesday 9/1. I'm selling my current car, a 2014 Acura MDX, to Carvana for ~ $3K more than Tesla's trade-in offer, on Tuesday. I'll be sorry to see the Acura go as it's been a great car for me, but I'm a...

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    I had ordered a MYLR on 7/27, with a November EDD. When that date recently changed to January, I decided to place an order for an MYP instead, after reading that they seem to be coming in more quickly. I placed that order on 8/27, with an indicated EDD of 4-5 weeks. The next day, an EDD of...

    Delivery times of Tesla Model-Y (June-July orders)

    I ordered a MYLR, red, induction wheels, 5 seats on 7/27 in Springfield, NJ. EDD was 11/8-28 until today, when it changed to a generic non-specific "January". I've never seen anything like this with ordering a car.

    Current Delivery Times

    So I ordered a MYLR, red, induction wheels, 5 seat, on July 27, and soon had an estimated delivery date of Nov 8 - 28. Today it changed to January! Does this happen often? This is my first experience with Tesla, but at age 75, I've ordered a few cars in my time, and they always arrived when...

    Any November EDDs?

    I ordered a MYLR on 7/27, delivery date at the time said November. After a number of days, it became Nov 8 - 28. I’m considering changing my order to the Performance model, but don’t want to chance slipping the delivery date further out. My sales rep says that could happen. Not sure what...

    Order change affect delivery date?

    I ordered a MYLR on 7/21; current estimated delivery is 11/8-28. If I change my order to the Performance model, will I go to the back of the line, so to speak, or will my delivery date remain as it is now? Thanks!

    THHN and 4/3 Romex availability

    That's good news. My inspection is scheduled for Monday; I hope it goes well also.

    THHN and 4/3 Romex availability

    I'm in the process of installing my wall connector now, & went with #6 THHN in PVC conduit, 60 amp breaker. My run was only about 30 ft with very few bends, so pulling the wire was relatively easy. I got the THHN at Lowe's. ($1.31/ft) Home Depot had it on their website, but the local store was...

    Gen 3 wall charger - connect to 80A breaker ok?

    Another vote for changing the breaker to 60 amp. I had a similar situation with new AC units installed in our house. The old outdoor units were on 30 & 40 amp breakers (one was larger than the other), but the new units, being more efficient, both needed 30. The estimator guy said the existing...
