    Gas Strut - auto open frunk

    I installed the power ‘frunk’ kit and love it! Works as advertised. Only (non) issue, it refused to open after car wash when temps were sub zero. (Frozen shut). Corrected itself later in day when sun thawed it out

    Making SENSE of at home charging costs...

    Does Pearl White issues still exits?

    the paint color miss match is still present - many claim not to see it, but they are in denial - it's there in plain site. I went with MSM, which also has a bit of a miss match, but far less obvious two slightly different 'shades of grey' [ :rolleyes: ] are far better than white and yellow

    Making SENSE of at home charging costs...

    Anyone else use SENSE? I installed it before I received my Tesla and have been monitoring the charging costs 2882 miles $155 5.3 cents per mile - not bad for cooler climate usage I have NO affiliation with this company, just sharing with the forum since most here are energy conscious and/or...

    Too soon??

    Too soon? Apparently, putting an alkaline seltzer in my mouth, and running through Walmart yelling “the virus is mutating” is not funny to everyone.

    Model Y Auto Dimming Side Mirrors - Backwards compatible?

    Does anyone know if the Side View Auto Dimming Mirrors on the lates Model Y builds are backwards compatible with Model Y's built prior to their introduction? My Vin is 62XXX and just missed their introduction by less than 500 on the vin count. I have emailed my local service center, but not...

    I ordered and received the homelink prior to delivery. I mentioned it to my sales advisor and asked if I could/should schedule the install for the same day of delivery...and He suggested I drop it off and he would arrange for service to install prior to pickup I was VERY pleased with this...

    White Color Mismatch Unacceptable

    if done correctly, you won’t have flake or failure.

    White Color Mismatch Unacceptable

    Lots of people with miss matches and being told that is the way it is, and then excepting that as gospel. Then there are those of us who know better, and don’t just settle for opinions or second best.

    White Color Mismatch Unacceptable

    I have had several white vehicle's over the years, 2 of which - pearl white. None have had paint miss matched bumpers. There is absolutely NO incentive for Tesla to correct the issue. Those of us who refuse to accept sub par paint jobs, are spending more $$ for another color (self included).

    sorry to hear your another victim of RPM’s stellar customer disservice and questionable products. I would suggest stopping by an auto parts store and purchase some 3m adhesive remover - works great!

    sure, what ever you say. I too would want to justify spending $150 on 4 pieces of rubber. :rolleyes:

    Mud flaps & Model Y

    Is yours a performance as well? I wonder if it has to do with the size of the tires. (not that the crappy kalifornia paint job gets a pass) the rear 21" tires are .8" wider than the 19's and 20's. Do the 21's ( standard on the performance) stick out a little more than the 19's or 20's?

    I had xpel put on mine, better and does not yellow over time like the 3m brand has been known to. here is a google map search of many PPF installers in that area - a few calls and you will surely find a better deal. Google Maps

    Mud flaps & Model Y

    Holly Crap escape pod - are you sure that's actual paint damage and not dried road spray? if this is actual paint damage, then I digress and admit the fugly flaps may be the only (temporary) solution.

    AVOID RPMTESLA accessories -

    For me it's less about the money, and more about principle. Small claims, disputing the credit card charge, even contacting the BBB - all great ideas, but I find the best value is to educate you all so none of you waste your hard earned dollars with a company that DOES NOT stand behind their...

    Mud flaps & Model Y

    My model Y has plastic rocker panels - so I don't see that as a problem... However, if your wheels are sticking out so far that you're kicking up rocks on the side of your car, then you probably don't have a stock setup, in that situation, you would be better off putting PPF on the...

    Mud flaps & Model Y

    DANG, why would anyone put RallyArmor FUGLY flaps on their car (or manure wagon for that matter) Personally, I want a quality mudflap that contours to the car's unique fenders and looks like it belongs, Rally Armor's generic and WAY OVERPRICED - one size fits all, flat piece of rubber/plastic...

    You would think so , wouldn’t you. I tried (several polite emails), they kept declining to make things right. So now , I hope other potential victims can learn from my misfortune and spend their $$ elsewhere.

    I purchased a very expensive wood veneer center console kit for $230.00 the edges kept lifting (the parts are warped)- I tried taping the edges down over night and they still lifted - resulting in sticking center console doors and damaged veneer. (see pics) I requested a return but was refused...

    Picked up my 2021 MSM MY vin 627xx yesterday. After all the YouTube videos and forum posts about QC issues with the Model Y, I did have concerns and apprehensions as the calendar ticked closer and closer to the delivery dates. So the day finally arrived and I went to claim my new toy. I admit...

    No return (after accepting delivery)!

    just a thought, but try removing the screen protector and see if that is causing the display issues?

    What's different from Model Y 2020 & 2021

    Another difference between the Berlin built cars and the Fremont built cars.... The painted bumpers will actually (paint) match on the German built cars :rolleyes:

    What's different from Model Y 2020 & 2021

    Only the front doors have the double pane glass - here is the parts list for the door glasses https://epc.tesla.com/#/systemGroups/81818?partNumber=1582616-00-A&partId=15746047 ---and it started with VIN 63XXX - I missed it by 226 - DAMN IT

    Side View Mirror (no auto dimming) - alternatives?

    Unfortunately the Model Y does not come with Auto Dimming side mirrors. and the existing fleet is not wired for such. I found some aftermarket side view mirror replacements from SUMA Performance. Convex'd for wider view, and Blue Tint to reduce glare. I really want auto dimming, but since...

    Immaculate delivery of 2021 Model Y

    was that a 'Senior' moment (nudge) I wonder if the model y's are pre wired and we can add them to our new Model Y's by swapping out the model y side mirror glass with model 3 glass? when I get mine, I will most certainly ask, I will also be inquiring about the heated steering wheel.

    Got My 2021 VIN!

    Not likely, you put a deposit down, but an actual purchase agreement was never completed. I’m in the similar situation - rather dissapointing.
