    I just got your Kagu Front and Rear seat mats for my 2021 Model S Refresh. Work great. Is there an ETA for rear trunk and frunk?

    My experience trying to clean the grime off the glass with an Orbital Polisher

    I was trying panel wipe, but it didn't seem to do anything at all. I then tried G4 Nanotech Glass polish and that's what worked. It's expensive and there may be better/cheaper option out there but it's what I had and it worked. I did use panel wipe after the G4 though. I then put on G1 (if I...

    My experience trying to clean the grime off the glass with an Orbital Polisher

    Yes, good tip. I eventually learned that and ended up doing a portion of the Y's windshield before I got burned out from detailing. ;)

    My experience trying to clean the grime off the glass with an Orbital Polisher

    This is a pretty useless post, but just thought I'd post that if you plan on cleaning your glass with a Orbital Polisher, might want to do that first before detailing the rest of the car. Granted, I had no experience with a orbital polisher and probably used way too much G4 cleaner.... I spent 1...

    Model S Refresh Mud/Splash Guards

    Do you think this material would be too hard to cut with a sharp carpenter knife? I don't have access to a jigsaw but I also don't want to make some janky (is that a word?) looking flaps by butchering them, ;) I just installed the front OEM ones, haven't driven on them yet. It was the first...

    Model S Refresh Mud/Splash Guards

    Looks awesome! I can't wait to have them on my S, but I'm in the camp of being hesitant about drilling/installing. Although it's probably justified as I'm completely useless with anything mechanical. Oh and you don't want to see any home "improvement" projects I've attempted. 😅 If I can do...

    Interesting... Should these hold up the water resistance for years or deteriorate over time? Here in Seattle we have a few days "without" rain ;) I've used Gtech products, but usually just keep going back to cheap and quick RainX. This looks like an interesting possible long term solution...

    No notice , but looked up my VIN for my 2021 S Plaid and it had the airbag issue. A mobile tech was out to replace it yesterday and probably took less than 10mins total. 👍

    Model S Refresh Mud/Splash Guards

    Just catching up on this thread and making sure I have everything on my end in preparation. The following sound about right? Front can be installed without taking the wheel off. Rears will need to be removed so you'll need a Jack along with pads (I made some with hockey pucks) TEKTON 1/2...

    Red Plaid clear coat and paint damaged after SC visit, what are my options?

    Quality control issues with my new Model Y

    Does anyone else have this bump in the trim area of the back hatch near the bottom of the window interior? (marked with blue tape) Just curious if it's normal. I've had almost all my issues resolved besides the missing wireless charger/USB ports, "leather" damage and possibly this area. The...

    I'll definitely be checking carefully for any vibration as I'm within the VIN range it appears. MF435xxx That is whenever I get my car back. Right now every time I think Tesla (which is pretty consistent throughout the day) my blood starts to boil.

    Accessories for 2021 Refresh Model S Plaid/LR

    Thanks. Actually, what made me think of getting some new valve caps was actually related, lol. It's still in process, but I had gone up to SODO yesterday to drop of our new Y (cosmetic/alignment issues) and just as we walked in, they were driving our plaid out of the service area. The tech said...

    Accessories for 2021 Refresh Model S Plaid/LR

    Regarding valve stem covers, just when I was going to pull the trigger on some nicer looking ones, I happen to do a quick search on here and see some saying "Don't do it!, can cause damage due to corrosion" Any suggestions for good ones, or material? I have yet to look deeper into it and only...

    I found after hours. I can't wait until tomorrow. There are other reports of joy rides. I think I might of mentioned even on my visit before this, they couldn't explain why it was leaving with around 20 miles more than arrived. This was months ago when there weren't as many Plaids. Hmmm.....

    Quality control issues with my new Model Y

    Nope, it should be a fairly new one 7SAYGDEF3NF313xxx. I wouldn't be that concerned, but my local service center will only make more problems. I just got my Plaid back yesterday from the Renton, WA service center. I'm still livid at the moment !! - Wiki - Mega-consolidated delivery quality...

    If you can believe this !!! - I found what they did during their little joy ride! Totally scratched my bumper, and not only that they put PPF back over it!!? And not just a little scratch. It's deep and I even had gravel pieces pushed under some of the other side of the bottom plastic. I'm glad...

    Yup! I gave away my gas mower and went with a electric mower and leaf blower. I only used my Honda gas pressure washer once to wash my Tesla right after I got it. It just felt "wrong" a very noisy, and smelly pressure washer, washing a Tesla. 😂

    Pacific Northwest Owners (Seattle, Portland, or towns/cities in the region)

    Yeah, I am a bit concerned owning two Teslas now and attempting to keep them clean. I used to take our Model 3 through the touchless car wash, but after getting full body wraps, I've decided to try and stick to hand washes. Have a gas powered pressure washer, my last remaining gas powered...

    Just had my plaid in for a list of issues. Awaiting an update for what was fixed. It doesn't appear anything was fixed besides a slow leak in one of the tires. Good thing they took it for a "test" drive. I'm sure driving 99MPH must be part of Tesla's diagnostics for a slow air leak in a tire. 👿...

    Quality control issues with my new Model Y

    Rear Left Motor Power May Be Reduced - WTF?

    Same here as well. I don't drive it daily, but I've probably tested it 3-4 times on different days and received the error 3 out of 4 of the times. I think the time I didn't receive the error may have been on the same day as previous test. Not conclusive, but interesting...
