    Those of you that use SSDs for sentry mode. Does it get extremely hot?

    Ive been using a 2.5inch WD Passport drive (platter drive) for a while and it had no issues. Didnt heat up too crazy (just got warm). I decided to switch to an SSD, and oh my gosh.

    Has anyone successfully retrofit laminated side glass to Model Y?

    I watched this video of the comparison. And the glass looks the same shape as far as anchor points. Its just on the new one because they used metal they didnt have to use as much glass at the bottom. But as far as attachment points where the motor is attached, from this video it looks the same...

    Has anyone replaced door windows? How much did it run you?

    Something got stuck in the window seal, scratched the window as it rolled down (front passenger). Contacted a few glass shops around everyone refusing to try and buff out scratch out of tempered glass. Said I need to replace the glass. So curious how much that would run me? I have the 2020...

    Thoughts on carrying a tire patch kit instead of

    So I know that using slime stuff is bad idea due to the sensors in the wheel. Even the Fix-A-Flat sold by Tesla says that TPMS has to be replaced if used. And I dont want to buy a spare to carry around. I think a small patch kit is a perfect balance, it may take a while to get it patched, but...

On all my previous cars id just find a local tire place with cheapest tires, pay them a few hundred bucks and be on my way. I didnt really care about the tires. But on the Y, I kind of do. And because...

    App charge limit percentages are off?

    This has happened before and ended up fixing itself later. But I cant seem to be able to set the charge limit to 100%, going all the way to the max sets it to 98%. And setting it to 90% (I even feel the phone vibrate indicating I set it right on the mark), it sets to 89%. Anyone experience this...

    Do you use Electrify America as a Tesla owner?

    Over here in California we got Superchargers at 36c/kw, which isnt cheap, but level 2 chargers are around 20c/kw. We got the first Electrify America station open near me, never seen one in person before, and its 46c/kw. And from what I understand with $500 adapter I can get 50kwh charge rate on...

Also, does anyone know what tesla does to adjust panel gaps with things like tail lights? Do they put some sort of...
