    Can I avoid paying sales tax in Nevada..........

    Seriously? I get that taxation sucks but please do not exploit the loophole.. I am not sure if this is tax evasion or not but jeez.. if you are going to do it, just keep it yourself... or pay the fair share since you are getting a nice vehicle!

    Model Y Auto Pilot Nearly Unusable

    Hmm... this is interesting.. I was about to say, 'adjust your following distance!!!!' but you have already owned M3 so you know this part.. I have 20 MY LR (radar) and 21 M3 (Vision) and I really don't have much problem with Tesla Vision aside from obvious shortcomings like speed limot to 80...

    Tesla interior color different from ordered

    I just let it be. I was not going to fuss about extra 80 miles on the car 😂 I mean I bought brand new car with much higher miles from dealers before. Instead, I was extremely glad that the build quality was flawless. Maybe this was why I didn't complain 😉

    Tesla interior color different from ordered

    It is possible that they might have delivered the wrong car to you (aka wrong VIN). This happened to my wife's m3 SR+ this June. Delivery specialst called me the day before the delivery and apologized that he delivered my wife's car to someone else and mistakenly added 80 miles to odometer... so...

    Damaged Aeroshield

    I see where you are coming from. I mean it does not hurt to ask SC and see if they are willing to cover it under the warranty. If it does, then let us know! 👍

    Damaged Aeroshield

    Sucks it happened to you.. I believe this will not be covered by warranty like above comment. I think you should file a claim with your insurance... Hope it is not too expensive of a repair..

    Wanting a model Y from Texas

    I am not trying to be a douchebag. I am just being honest with you about purchasing Tesla. It is not the most customer-oriented experience as you already experienced it. What you experienced could be one of the many annoying things that you might experience. So take it as a joke rather than...

    Wanting a model Y from Texas

    I agree. You should probably not get Tesla if you are already having issue/frustration with test drive. I bet that you won't survive the anxiety/frustration of waiting for delivery, picking up, and possible servicing... Good luck with other options! 👍👋

    Ordering model Y

    If you follow the recent news, 4680 battery is still months if not years away from full production.. https://www.google.com/amp/s/electrek.co/2021/07/26/tesla-update-4680-battery-cell-production/amp/ So answering your question, there is absolutely no way for you to get MY with 4680 battery at...

    Seeking Opinions on MY vs alternate

    This is my 2 cents. I owned MY LR for about a year now and ended up getting M3 SR+ 2 months ago for my wife after test driving pretty much every other EVs out there. 1. Road Noise - Tesla is not the best car out there but is also not the worst in this category. I think the road noise is just...

    Model Y - Is my car totaled?

    Hope you are okay... Re MY, yikes... damage seems to be pretty bad.. however, I cast my vote that the vehicle will not be totalled as long as battery remains intact.. Regardless, hope for good outcome!!

    How to evaluate a used Y

    Looking at current market, you will likely pay more for used ones.. I sometimes see ad for used MYs in my area and they are outrageously more expensive than new ones..

    Hard braking for no reason

    Phantom braking does occur time to time. There are numerous threads about it in this forum. As Tesla and many others testified so far, AP and FSD are not perfect at this point. Thus, it is important to stay alert all the time so that you can apply the accelerator right away to maintain the...

    SPV in Texas ... or whatever it's called

    It will be determined based on MVPA that Tesla will send it to you after taking the delivery. In simple term, the price that you agreed to pay when you placed the order.

    Anyone able to pick up directly from Fremont, if live close enough?

    It is destination fee. Not delivery fee. There are other threads in this forum that asked the same questions. All answers pointed that you still have to pay $ regardless of picking up locations.

    Registration in Texas - Registration Packet

    For your reference, I took delivery of my M3 on 6/19. Received and registered my vehicle on 7/13 at Tarrant county. I dont know if paying full in cash matters in getting the doc faster but I paid in cash so def had less paper. When I took my MY last year, it also did take about 3 weeks. Hope it...

    DANGEROUS MAPPING ERRORS ON CURVY MOUNTAIN ROADS [Correction: Tesla map accurately displays this section of I-8]

    I agree with GtiMart. Any maps could be different from the actual road to varying degree such as new construction, road closure and etc. Though map/navigation should be as accurate as possible, I believe it is ultimately driver's responsibility to remain focused on road to stay on correct path...

    Tesla, please get rid of the fake leather and use real leather

    No worries 👍 I would be frustrated as well if my MY or M3's leather has an issue.. I am just hoping that my two dogs' constant drooling and my endless fight to prevent those drool marks will help keep my leathers intact while I own my Teslas 😂

    Tesla, please get rid of the fake leather and use real leather

    Real leather has a high environmental cost compared to 'fake' leather. For a company that touts sustainable energy future, I do not think it will ever utilize the real leather... I would definitely suggest a regular cleaning regimen to maintain/expand the lifespan of the fake leather quality...

    Model Y Vs Deer

    Very possible. The huge factor here is labor cost of certified bodyshop. Mine was relatively expensive compared to other places but I was satisfied with their work and insurance paid for it... so no complaints here 😉

    Model Y Vs Deer

    Yes, I was lucky since it was 2 am in rural Texas highway without any vehicles in either directions. My wife said whats that and I just slammed on brake asap (kudos to Tesla for brake performance). I was able to avoid hitting heads on but deer still somehow managed to ram into me 😑 Good thing...

    Model Y Vs Deer

    Jeez.. Your deer accident is worse than mine I had in December even though I also hit the deer while going 55 MPH w/out AP... I guess me slamming my brake did mitigate the damage.. Anyway, I am glad that you are okay which is always the crucial thing in this circumstance. Car can be fixed well...

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Supercharger - Car Body damage

    Supercharger - Car Body damage

    I do not understand how this is Tesla or anyone else's fault.. It is vehicle operator's responsibility to park without damaging one's vehicle or surrounding objects.. I get that it is frustrating that parking block had a faulty installation or what not. However, it is still your responsibility...

    Model Y Build Quality Improving?

    This was my thought process when I ended up getting MY last year after owning 2 BMWs, 1 MB, and 1 Audi. Despite known built quality issue of Teslas, am I going to be picky person that will be checking every single minor deficiencies and be stressed about those issues forever? I chose not to...

    Serious paint flaws discovered after delivery

    I think 'serious' is a bit too much here. Re white compounds, I have those when I picked up my vehicle as well. As SC folk said, it was indeed polishing compound that was easily removed. Well, chip, SC should be able to address if it wants too. If not, make sure to get PPF. Don't be like me and...

    My Model Y Range....is really good.

    Mine is 285 lifetime after 14K miles on it. Today, I experimented by driving 70 mph on interstate from Austin to Fort Worth (Approx 200 miles) and it showed a miraculous 258 😉 I was like, did my 2 large dogs lose weight?

    Car won't start during software update

    That is a bummer and I hope everything went well for you.. However, Tesla does warn before the owner accepting the software update that the vehicle cannot be operated during the update..
