    Question about stereo system in Model Y

    Not an F1 fan, but would love to hear this experience. Do you have a good link to share? Not sure what YT video would be most authentic. Thanks!

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    Or what about how Tesla did it in Canada. Make the car cheap enough to qualify for rebate and limit the battery capacity. Make it a software unlock you have to pay for after purchase to open up full battery capacity. Net-net the price stays the same for Tesla and the consumer, but now the...

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    If you really want to get detailed, don’t forget about the increase in order fee from $100 to $250. And the removal of 11 months of free premium connectivity ($9.99 + tax per month). With your 6% tax, that’s another $275.48. Total of $8,755.48 in savings!

    Price Increase

    In addition to the general MSPR price increases, Tesla seems to be slowly increasing peripheral costs. Order Cost increased from $100 to $250 Changed from 1 year free Premium Connectivity to 30 days. So basically increase in price of $110 + tax for the same product. Also looks like Tesla is...

    R.I.P. Tesla Referral Program

    Looks like Tesla is still honoring people who submitted a referral code prior to the program expiring. I just received another 1,000 miles from someone who had their car delivered on Oct. 9th. I still have 1 more outstanding referral; I hope he doesn't change his mind and still wants his Tesla!

    How to maximize delivery hold?

    If you want to continue your hold you should probably contact your SA to extend. On Nov. 1st your hold will be lifted and the VIN matching process will begin. I did click the I’m ready button early but this is what my SA told me. Said I didn’t need to do anything and my profile would begin...

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    For Pennsylvania the total price had to be less than $50,000 to qualify. And that included Destination, Doc, and Order Fees along with the options. So basically the total car price. So even when the MY was base $49,990 when I ordered, it was already over the PA min.

    Full screen gaming

    I'll bite. I have an xbox controller that I use to play the Tesla games. However, I am unaware of how to play other games.

    Will I get the car into my garage?

    I used summon (not smart summon) to move the car in and out of my garage and it still turned the wheels to ensure it went in straight without hitting anything. Pretty cool. And made it easy when I just didn’t feel like lining it up after having stopped to take out my daughter. She liked to watch...

    Will I get the car into my garage?

    I will give you my experience as I thought I had a tight garage too. First off, I had the Tesla Sales Advisor drive a MY to my house before I placed an order and did a garage test fit. Fit no problem, but was tight. I just measured my garage opening and converted from in to cm to help you...

    R.I.P. Tesla Referral Program

    At least Tesla admitted fault by agreeing to settle and pay each of those owners $625. Hopefully Tesla learned their lesson and will communicate better in the future, because I'm sure a 2nd time will be costlier.

    R.I.P. Tesla Referral Program

    Don’t expect 2,000 anyway. It has been confirmed a while ago they don’t let you double dip with your own code. They would only give 1,000. Not sure with the program ending if you may still possibly get the 1,000 though.

    Pictures of all of your MY accessories while waiting for delivery

    I keep a Tesla card in my wallet, but I keep the card holder in my glovebox. Used it for the shop that did my tint and I know for a wedding coming up it will hopefully help the valet. Unless of course there are multiple Model Ys there.

    Pictures of all of your MY accessories while waiting for delivery

    I've used the soft cooler now for two 13 hour each way summer road trips (so 4 legs). It fits 2 Hello Fresh ice packs in it nicely and they still were partially frozen after 13 hours. However, I read that the frunk gets really hot so we opted to just put the cooler in the trunk. We had plenty...

    Tesla EV Tax Credits coming back?

    Probably makes more sense to remove FSD. Even if FSD increases in price, then you still get the config of the car you want and qualify for the rebate. Then just use the rebate to pay for your separate FSD purchase. Plus you'll get $10,000 plus tax in points on your credit card. Just my 2 cents.

    Yeah, you can see the TESLA store signage in the reflection. And there is another white M3/MY behind it.

    New parents with a Model Y - Baby transportation?

    She will have plenty of baby wipes anyway. So keep a pack in the center console at all times to clean the seats when needed. I suggest tinting the windows with a ceramic tint. I have a 3 year old and she said it didn’t feel as hot with the sun shining on her during road trips after the tint was...

    Big New Update

    I got my MY on Wed. June 16th. And first update was 2 weeks later to the day. Second update was also on a Wed. I recently just got my 3rd update, it was on a Tues, so I guess there isn’t a pattern.

    I think the strip is PA legal (4 inches). I thought about 80 Air for the entire windshield, but was concerned about defrosting winter snow. So I left it untinted.

    You could use a 2nd code if you buy a 2nd Tesla. If you haven’t already added a Tesla supercharger referral for 1,000 free miles you still can up until your delivery date. Just message your Tesla sales advisor the code you want to use. You may also want to cc [email protected] with...

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    I am happy to provide a referral code. However, this shouldn't reduce your rate. It's based on your credit score. But if you want your spouse to apply, I can generate a code for you. You get $20 and I get $10, that is all a referral does. I will PM you.

    The charging (money wise) of superchargers.

    You can email [email protected] with your reservation number and the referral code. And they will add it for you up until delivery day. Some SAs have not been helpful. However, not sure if they can do anything for you after delivery. But who knows. It’s worth a shot if you explain it to...

    The charging (money wise) of superchargers.

    Did you use up your 1,000 mile allotment from your referral bonus? After that is used up, then Tesla begins to charge you at Superchargers.

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    No reason not to open the account now to ensure a smoother process when applying for the auto loan. Do not apply for a loan until you receive a VIN from Tesla. I agree, their explanation isn't clear. I had to talk to a Rep. to fully understand. Yes, they offer a 90-day grace period to setup...

    Closer following distance with new SW update [teslavision radarless model 3]

    Wall Connector overcharging my MY

    Interestingly enough, this morning it charged to / showed 75% SOC, as set to via the mobile app. Nothing new updated on my end, but didn't "overcharge' this time. Just reporting another data point for folks.

    "Please pay off your remaining balance prior to delivery" Meaning??

    I brought a personal check to delivery. They initiated an ACH based on the account and routing numbers on the check. Showed pending debit on my account that evening and posted the next day. There is absolutely no reason to pay Tesla early and before delivery. It will not impact receiving your...

    Wall Connector overcharging my MY

    I’ve been setting my 14-30 adapter with mobile connector charging set via mobile app to 75% and the past couple weeks it has consistently been charging over… 77-78%. Not really an issue, but seeing that someone else is “over charging” I figured I’d mention. When I got the car in June it has...

    There is nothing to feel guilty or bad about not going with DCU. They are still driving some business with the low rates. It’s just the way it goes that some applicants are rate matching.

    Hello everyone i have a question about the referral program.

    It depends who you talk to. That email address above has worked for a few people over the past couple of weeks. But yes, my SA who has done it in the past said things have changed and he wasn’t able to do it anymore. And he used to have a contact above him who could do it and now no longer can...

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    If you apply with multiple banks for an auto loan within a 30 day window then there will be only one hard credit pull. Apply to 3 or 4 if you want to shop around. Credit agencies know this and it will not impact your score more than if only applying with 1 bank.

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    You can apply for DCU and then 1 min. later apply with Tesla. So that is a "combined" step. Rate matching is rarely past 1 day unless maybe on a weekend.

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    Wait until assigned a VIN. East Coast orders are received about 2 weeks after getting a VIN. Plenty of time to apply for financing. West Coast can be about 1 week. Closer to Fremont, CA the less of a wait after a VIN is assigned.

    Model Y tint pictures

    How did your front defroster perform last winter with having a ceramic tinted front windshield? I'm worried it will block the defroster heat from melting the snow and ice and make it harder to defrost. I'm thinking about doing just a 50% Black Ceramic visor tint on the windshield above the...

    Windows tinting questions

    Now I am thinking about just putting an upper windshield strip of 50% BlackCeramic to match the front windows and provide some blocking of the sun. For the rear door windows and the 2 small windows behind those, I plan to install the 80% AirCeramic so it doesn't make it too much darker, but...

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    Only caveat is yes you need to fund the account with $5, but it’s still your money. It doesn’t cost $5 to open. You get it back if you close the account. I actually funded it with $1,000 to take advantage of their 6.17% APY savings account.

    Windows tinting questions

    I live in Philadelphia and parking MY in a garage. We get sub zero winters every year and snow/ice enough that you have to know how to drive in it. Definitely need to use the front defroster often every winter. Now I’m debating installing 80% AirCeramic on the front windshield. With it now...

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    Good luck. Typical responses have been less than 24 hours. If you don't get it for 72 months, then I would push back and get 60 months if you are comfortable with that. Otherwise 1.24% for 65 months with DCU isn't anything to complain about either!
