    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I thought all Ys had the heat pump. That it was only hit and miss on the 3

    Regenerative Braking, How Much Does it Actually Do?

    I too have driven 150,000 miles in a non-ev car without having to replace the brakes Mind you, I've had to replace the front clip several times 🤣

    Ford requiring owners of F-150 Lightnings to not sell them in first year

    Another point: you have to ask how the eventual recipients were "hand-picked". Maybe just maybe Ford saw someone famous and thought let's make him a shill for us That process was probably not random, nor one sided

    Ford requiring owners of F-150 Lightnings to not sell them in first year

    Why do people who seem to so value capitalism, not actually value capitalism? (just a general statement not aimed at anyone specific here) We're fortunate enough to live in a market driven economy and that gives us power. I think adding a no-resale clause to the sales contract is pretty low...

    Ford requiring owners of F-150 Lightnings to not sell them in first year

    ...or what if someone bought one then realised it was a PoS and they wanted to unload it pronto?

    Ford requiring owners of F-150 Lightnings to not sell them in first year

    They must really like their customers . . .

    I'm trying to add an SSD so I can listen to audio books, but I'm having trouble

    Just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to everyone for their contributions The eventual solution was to get the eAudioBooks from the library and play them through the Overdrive/Libby application on the phone with the Media Center set to Phone The books even get automatically loaded to the...

    Mine does ... but it's a Coleman air bed I'll send pics when I have a moment

    32A charging Vs reduced current

    Do you sleep for more than five hours?

    Incredible Hit and Run in Paris

    That was deffo worth a thumbs up

    Remember THIS when the Tx legislature says dealer promote price shipping!

    I have a problem with this - and it's not that a huge markup is being put on those vehicles, but that we are fortunate enough to live in a market driven economy, and that being so also requires us to use the power that gives us. My problem therefore is that people actually pay this amount...

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Wait, I think the original article was misquoted in the title of this thread Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y should have been Car & Driver: The Mach E better than the Model Y if you're a simpleton

    New Michelin airless tires

    ... and this is for all you naysayers, they actually ARE being used in real world applications Here's a pic if you don't believe me

    New Michelin airless tires

    Maybe, but they could always shove a broom handle into the spokes !

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Agreed. It's a little like the Army and the Air Force squabbling when they're both there to fight the same enemy

    College degree as a REQUIREMENT

    but the chances that the college graduate is going to stay for about two years before moving on are much MORE than the 35 year old

    Ikea Twin Mattress Fits a Y

    I have a Malm, but even better than that (and more in keeping with the aesthetics of a Tesla) would be the PAX wardrobe (with the glass doors of course)

    Service Centre broke my juddering display but would not replace under warranty

    I used sticky backed velcro to attach it to the front of the door pocket. Works really well for me, though mine is a LHD if that makes a difference

    I'm trying to add an SSD so I can listen to audio books, but I'm having trouble

    I take it back - Audible is only $7.99 a month ... ... but ... our library system uses Overdrive where you can download items to your phone Check out the Libby app on Android

    How good is your Dashcam footage?

    I've reviewed mine a couple of times and I have to say, the Rear is pretty good, the Left and Right Repeaters are quite good too, but the Front is very pixilated Is this just me or is it a common complaint? Do I need to set up an appointment? I've had dashcams in my other vehicles for several...

    I'm trying to add an SSD so I can listen to audio books, but I'm having trouble

    That I haven't tried. I have the original USB stick that came with the car and that works for dashcam and sentry Wait a sec, let me give it a try Ok in the glovebox it'll record Dashcam footage - though I forgot to try Sentry - Doh! However in the center console it will record Sentry but...

    I tried the glovebox port, but it wouldn't recognise the drive It's a gigantic PitA really !

    I'm trying to add an SSD so I can listen to audio books, but I'm having trouble

    Well I've made some progress - thanks maybe to the link to that other thread I made a F: drive and a G: drive on the SSD, added the TeslaCam folder on F: and put some mp3s on G: - some directly and some in subfolders Then I got in the car and plugged the SSD into one of the front ports in the...

    I'm trying to add an SSD so I can listen to audio books, but I'm having trouble

    I'd do Audible, but it's $15 a month and I get mine from the library where it's all "free" (and plenty to choose from)

    When is structural battery pack & 4680 cells coming & Why are you not waiting until then?

    Considering a lot of gas stations are closing because of laws pertaining to underground tanks, you'd think that'd be the perfect catalyst to make them replace gas pumps with EV charging stations

    Discussions about Infinity

    well technically . . . If you had 1, then ended up with 2 that would be an increase of 1 (2 - 1) which given the original count of 1 is a 100% increase (1 divided by 1) So if you had 0 and ended up with 1 , it's still an increase of 1 (1 - 0) but percentage wise is 1 divided by zero . . .

    I'm trying to add an SSD so I can listen to audio books, but I'm having trouble

    I promise I looked for an answer, I even RTFMd, but I'm still having trouble setting something up so I can listen to audio books in the car I bought an SSD - a Samsung T7 and formatted it in the car Then I noticed it was exFAT, so I downloaded the free version of EaseUS Partition Manager and...

    When is structural battery pack & 4680 cells coming & Why are you not waiting until then?

    In fairness, how many gas stations are there on that route?

    When is structural battery pack & 4680 cells coming & Why are you not waiting until then?

    Not me. I start the day with 80% and find it's rare that I'm starting an overnight charge sequence with the SoC sitting at less than 60% And the times I've taken a long trip, it's not been an issue at all. Dallas to Round Rock with 23% at arrival IIRC. Could probably have gone al the way past...

    March 2022 Model Y doesn't match Owners Manual. Has no USB or USB-c ports to play USB music!

    I thought the music had to be FAT32 My book specifically says exFAT won't work for music

    I wonder why my new (refurbished) Samsung T7 SSD comes up as Teslacam . . .

    come on now - which one of you bought it from Best Buy then returned it? Oh this is annoying because you can't change the title of a thread: It's TESLADRIVE, not Teslacam :mad: The folder name was created when I formatted it in the vehicle (because it wasn't regocnised by my PC)

    Hydroplaned and crashed. Driving for 50 years. Never happened before. Thoughts?

    That depends on what kind of sex you've been having ;)

    Handles not satin/matte like remainder of trim?

    It's a safety feature. If you're too hammered to find the door handle you're too hammered to drive

    Battery Charger: Need to replace after breaker caught fire?

    What answer do you have? Yes there are a lot of questions to ask here: Was the 60A breaker for the HPWC? or something else and if something else, what? Was this panel installed recently? or is it and old one? Most importantly ... was it made by Federal Pacific?

    Successful retrofit of passenger lumbar on 2021 Model Y

    Just glue something black, round and plastic onto the side of the passenger seat and tell her it the lumbar control. Tell her to press it and feel the difference, but also tell her it's really really subtle and only smart people can feel it

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Actually I just saw some big Ford - like an Expedition or something but with all manner of shite on the roof. Seriously it looked like a LAPD cop car from some 1940s movie ... is that their attempt at self driving? There has to be a significant range decrease with that on the roof. It'd be like...

    Can we call a truce? :) Unlike some of the other places I visit, this place is generally peaceful and has useful information

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    They were doing really well ... until that last bit :(

    Car & Driver: The Mach E is simply better than the Model Y

    Not so much "caught with their pants down" as did everything in their power to kill EVs and reduce CAFE standards. They're now dealing with the consequences of their actions and playing catch-up Hard to feel sympathy for them really, though I also agree that the more EVs there are on the road...
