    Retro-fitting HEPA filter in Model Y

    @FrostY I'm thinking that it might be easier than worrying about how far to drill down, how long the fastener should be, etc, @MattM24 IIRC, they make those studs as long as 30". I'm not sure where to source them though.

    For the 2020 non-BDM (without the threaded inserts), I wonder if a blind thread rivet nut would be easier??

    Can I reuse Tesla TPMS on aftermarket wheels?

    Yes you can...swapped out the Geminis for Vossens and kept the Continentals. The shop just moved the Tesla TPMS over to the new wheels. I sold the Geminis to a buyer looking to have a set of winter wheels for his MYP.

    Need recommendation for a rear CF matt finish spoiler for MY

    I have the Topfit on my 2020 MYLR. Installed about nine months ago. The spoiler hasn't moved a bit, still solidly mounted. I used the included adhesive and adhesive promoter. I taped the heck out of it (using 3M yellow automotive masking tape) to hold it in place overnight while the adhesive...

    FYI Tesla/Wawanesa labor rate issue on repairs

    OTOH, Wawanesa OVER-estimated the cost to replace the passenger mirror on my 2020 MYLR that had been knocked off by a lane-splitting motorcyclist. I "made" about $110, haha!!

    CCS Adapter - ?

    I don't see it as scalping, it's more like arbitrage. The seller took a risk (maybe small, but a risk) in giving up their account password and wiring money to Korea to buy what is, for now, a grey market item. Some folks may want the adaptor, but don't want to take that much risk. So they're...

    Recommendation on Tesla Wall Charger installers in So. CA, Orange County area

    No, I have an old Schneider Electric 30 amp I use for my MY, and a Tesla wall connector for my wife’s MY. Both chargers are wired with a 14-50 cord and each plug into 14-50 outlets on separate 50 amp circuits.

    Plugged in all the time…..Really?

    The owner's manual is so clear on this topic: leave it plugged in. Full stop. I always wonder why all the debate about this? The manufacturer says to leave it plugged in. Who can say (with a straight face) that THEY know more than Telsa's engineers about how to maintain battery health? Below...

    Can I get a FOB for MYLR?

    The FOB is great. It also functions as a key card. Meaning: even if the FOB dies, gets waterlogged, battery is out, etc you can unlock the car by tapping on the pillar, and drive the car by tapping on the center console.

    Again, that shows me how serious this was. They didn’t want it to be an option. It had to be uninstalled. Just to be clear, I DIDN’T have AP/FSD engaged when the AEB’s happened. They were completely out of nowhere. We had cars behind swerving and braking to avoid hitting us.
