    Model Y P vs Rivian R1S

    I've seen a couple of R1T's (one of them with a manufacturer plate) around where I live, and they look pretty good. They actually don't look as big as they do in pictures and videos, which is a plus in my book. The Rivians certainly look like extremely compelling products on paper, but I would...

    MYP Delivery Still With Summer Tires?

    Maybe I'm wrong, but living in Minnesota, I'd get a set of dedicated winter tires on 18" or 19" wheels for the MYP regardless of what came tires with it. For one thing, smaller wheels are lighter and will increase the efficiency a little bit (as I've observed), which is useful for our cold...

    Any other owners second guess if their next car should be another Tesla?

    It'll probably (hopefully) be 5+ years before I look at getting a new car, so by that time I would hope that there are a lot of great options besides Tesla. I would do my due diligence and try to pick the best car for me. Whether or not it's another Tesla depends on how they stack up with the...

    range anxiety

    The track was a 1.2 mile track with a lot of turns and no long straights, so I think the highest speed I got to before having to hard brake was near 90 MPH. Probably because of that I did not notice any drop off in acceleration toward the end of the day. I don't know if the power bar on the...

    Are we ever getting track mode?

    I took my MYP to a track last weekend to learn some performance driving. A couple of guys with Model 3's were surprised that the MYP doesn't have track mode. But I will say that as a total novice (first time ever on a track), I thought the MYP handled great and I quickly gained confidence...

    range anxiety

    The MYP is my first EV. I've researched it a lot before and after delivery (and still trying to learn as much as I can about it on these forums), and I honestly have not had any range anxiety at any time since I feel like I have a very good handle on its energy consumption characteristics. I...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    I'm really interested to find out the price and actual performance of the EV6 GT (or the Ioniq5 N-line or whatever it'll be called). If it ends up with a better 0-60 time, it would cool if that prompts Tesla to offer an acceleration boost for the MYP, assuming there's anything left to squeeze...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    I would agree the Model Y (and perhaps the entire Tesla lineup) is a tough sell at the current price, at least for people who would comparison shop. What I'm really interested to see is how much other manufacturers increase their price for model year 2023 EV's. If they can hold the line or...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    So with the newly increased price of the MY, would you still take it over the Ioniq5 at MSRP?

    Another price increase

    When I ordered my MYP last July it seemed like a pretty decent value. But if I was to order one now, it would cost me over $80k when you include TTL, charger install, and winter wheels. I'd probably be forced to look at something else, which would suck because I love the MYP.

    Trash Can for Model Y in Armrest storage?

    I went with the trash bag with the Tesla logo behind the passenger seat. I can teach it fairly easily from the driver’s seat and easy access for the kids in the back. We only put “dry” trash such as wrappers and masks in there.

    Anyone actually missing trip info and tyre pressure cards more than heated seats and defroster buttons?

    If I was designing the UI, I'd put a hot-key button right above the car icon in the lower left corner that could be set to bring up any of the pages within the car icon. I'd set that to the trip page to bring it up in one touch. I prefer the trip page over the previous cards, but it would be...

    S3XY buttons at Abstract Ocean

    @dimitar.ns Maybe you guys have already looked into it, but if there's a way to turn off the passenger side air vent while someone is sitting in the passenger seat, it would be a nice function to have for the buttons. Seems like many people's spouses complain that air flow can't be shutoff on...

    S3XY buttons at Abstract Ocean

    I'm not sure how the "nano-suction" stuff works, but I've had ones I stuck on behind the screen fall off pretty soon after initial placement as well. I just tried cleaning both surfaces as well as I could and press the buttons down often and so far they've been holding well. I even put one on...

    HEPA Filter: Using Bioweapon mode vs Not

    I’ve turned on the bio defense mode when someone farted in the car (not the car itself farting). Is that a correct use case for it??

    S3XY buttons at Abstract Ocean

    I’ve had mine fall off the back of the steering wheel spoke when I first installed them. I just cleaned both the spoke and the button real good with alcohol wipes and pressed hard to stick them back on. Then I tend to press them down hard (by the rim of the buttons) every time I get in the car...

    Anyone actually missing trip info and tyre pressure cards more than heated seats and defroster buttons?

    I kind of liked the V10 trip cards, but now that I’ve used V11 for a while, I think I prefer the new trip page where everything is displayed at once instead of separate cards. When I check the trip page it’s never more than a few seconds to acquire the information I wanted to look at, so I...

    How to get Trunk Open to display after "P" park?

    I've had that happen a couple of random times. It usually sort itself out after a little bit of time. Otherwise you can try the two-button reset (holding down both steering wheel buttons for 15~20 seconds).

    Inner Rear Tail light and hatch alignment

    Hot damn! I just checked mine and the driver’s side is a little bit out of alignment. But my lift gate was a replacement after getting rear ended last year, so not sure if that gap was there when the car was new. It doesn’t bother me though. I’ve never noticed it until now. But I’ll post pics...

    Elon: Working on Tesla NA Service. Goal of having 2/3 of cars have same day service w/ no wait.

    I'm curious if you had aftermarket puddle lights installed when your window issue happened? I have aftermarket logo puddle lights installed and am prepared to pay up for repairs if they fail and caused damage. If you had aftermarket puddle lights, did you swap back the OEM lights before going...

    Move from Audi Q7 to Model Y or alternative?

    I’ve never driven a Q7 but my mom recently got an etron and I’ve driven it a fair bit. The etron’s ride is definitely much more compliant than the MYP, even in Dynamic mode, but the MYP’s ride feels fine to me after back to back drives with the etron. I guess I’m not that sensitive to ride...

    Is FSD worth it $10k? ( Any insight from Beta users)

    Yeah, I would pay $2k for the Enhanced AP stuff too. I also think FSD would only be of value for me if it reaches level 5, allowing me to sleep on the trip. As for Robotaxi, I have less than 0% interest in using my car as as that.
  24. gx9901

    Is FSD worth it $10k? ( Any insight from Beta users)

    I mean, Elon has said a lot of things. I'd love to have that track mode for my MYP he promised last year. I'm skeptical that the current hardware would be able to support full FSD, but if it happens that's great. I might even go for full FSD if it turns out that my car has enough hardware to...

    Is FSD worth it $10k? ( Any insight from Beta users)

    I'm not really interested in FSD or FSD Beta, since I'd rather drive myself, but I do acknowledge that it is cool technology. If it was much cheaper I would certain consider buying it just to have something cool in my car. But $12k is not throw-away money for me. I was listening to the latest...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    I found this to be a relatively shocking development, almost like GM is giving us the tax credit themselves. I was expecting to see big price increases in most 2023 models, given the big increases we've seen in Tesla over the last few months. Now it'll be really interesting to see what the...

    S3XY buttons at Abstract Ocean

    If they do less than 4 seconds I hope it's with a separate switch (say V4 or V3.5), as I find 4 seconds to be perfectly fine. I've actually unintentionally opened the frunk while holding the door handle once or twice. Maybe the solution is to have adjustable duration on the V3 logic so we can...

    Yeah, I use the handle pull frunk open a lot more than I thought I would. Love it!

    Model Y Rear Ended - Others Experience?

    Mine was drivable so I drove around with the dented lift gate and bumper for 2 months. I guess that was better than being without the car. That's good of them to get your evaluation in soon. Hopefully getting parts in won't be too terrible. At least you got insurance to upgrade your car...

    Model Y Rear Ended - Others Experience?

    Aw man, sorry to see that! Did you take it to LaMettry's? I got rear ended last October and took it to LaMettry's in Inver Grove Heights. It took about 2 months to get a spot to bring the car in, then once they opened it up it was determined that there were structural damage and needed to go...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    I've actually never owned a car with CarPlay, but now have plenty of experience using it since most other cars I've driven (rentals, wife's old car, mom's cars, etc) all have it. I certainly wouldn't mind having CarPlay in the Tesla, but at this point when I see CarPlay, it sort of screams...

    Chirping noise

    Is that noise coming from the dash area or the seat? Mine had a bit of a chirp but not as bad as yours. I opened up the passenger seat back and found a loose plastic ring that is used to secure one of the metal rods in the seats to the frame. Without the plastic ring secured correctly the rod...

    Thinking of buying Model Y LR

    OP, most of the people here are going to be pro-MY, including me, so you should keep that in mind as you gather opinions on the MY here. I think since you've rented and love the M3, it's pretty safe to say that you'll like the MY since it's basically just a bigger M3. I would just point out...

    Why is the model Y the red headed step child of Tesla?

    Yeah, I want a track mode for my MYP (mostly so I can dial up my own snow mode) and the 1:18 diecast MY model, dammit! I recently saw a "My first Tesla Model Y" in the Tesla web shop (gone now, but available elsewhere), which I would definitely buy if my son was 2, so I don't know why they...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Whoa! I did not know this about the Ioniq5! If that's true it would be a deal breaker for me. Unless our MYs have something similar that I didn't know about?
  38. gx9901

    Okay, some questions after driving for a few days...

    I don't always pay attention to whether or not traffic lights and stop signs always show up, but in general I don't recall not seeing stop lights on the FSD-realization pane. I don't have FSD, and it doesn't appear that you have it, so the car will not stop for the stop signs or traffic lights...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    I went from Odyssey to the MYP too. I love minivans for their utility, but I'm finding that the MYP is more than sufficient in the utility department now that my oldest daughter got her driver's license and is more independent, so I'm usually dealing with 1~2 kids instead of 3. When I had the...

    Driver Seat Creaking Sound

    I had a creak in the driver's seat that sounded like metal sliding/skidding on metal. Eventually I took off the seat back and found one of the plastic pieces securing one of the rods from the yellow lumbar assembly not secured, causing the metal rod to slide around the metal hole without that...

    Rear Carbon Fiber spoiler lose on MY?

    Man, that’s pretty bad. The original spoiler on mine was lifting slightly (not close to as bad as yours though) within 2 weeks of delivery, and I had it replaced. The second one was starting to lift a little bit but before I could get to the appointment to replace it again I got rear ended, so...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    I “test drove” the Ioniq5, EV6, and Mach-E GT at the Twin Cities Auto Show yesterday. The drives are like 3-4 minutes long so obviously not close to enough to form a real opinion, but I came away liking the Ioniq5 the most of these three based on how I felt in the driver’s seat while driving 20...

    Ioniq 5 vs Model Y

    Cool! I will be at the TC Auto show tomorrow and am hoping to test drive as many EVs there as possible. Ioniq5 is definitely at the top of the list to check out. Also, do they really have e-tron GT available to test drive as the website indicated?

    S3XY buttons at Abstract Ocean

    I know what you're getting at regarding just using the standard way to activate AP. Why waste a button on something you can just easily double tap with your right hand? Well, I tried doing the AP lane change as described by @eaglesrest with the button behind my left wheel spoke and I was like...
  48. gx9901

    S3XY buttons at Abstract Ocean

    Thanks for the description of your AP setup with the S3XY button. I also wondered how is using the button is an advantage over just double tapping the stalk, but I just tried it with AP assigned to a button I have behind the left spoke of the steering wheel, and I like it a lot! Works as you've...

    Polestar 2 notes

    Have you checked out the Volvo C40? It's basically the same car as the Polestar 2 (at least its underpinnings), but looks much different inside and out. That's what we ended up getting for my wife. In our case the C40 works well because the range is plenty for my wife's use case (typically...

    I sold my Tesla Model Y today

    I think the OP did well with the deal for the MY trade-in, and I also think as long as the OP is happy with the resulting vehicle, that's all it matters. That said, when I read the first post, I was thinking maybe the MY was traded in for a Taycan or something, so I was a bit surprised that it...
