    Two small oil like patches 29 in apart at front about in line with the front wheels,thoughts

    Do you have a scope inspection camera you could use to take a peek? Perhaps you can identify the source that way and not worry about removing or tampering with anything to catch the ire of a Tesla tech?

    Curb Rash MYP 21" Uberturbine (Fixable?)

    It works and if done right, you will not notice it unless you go looking for the repair. Zink also sells kits with sandpaper included if you do not have any already. BUT... You need to put in the effort to make sure to prep and clean up the wheel first. Depending on the damage, if not too...

    Phone App

    Doesn't Android monitor running apps that are not being much and then stop them or force them into a deep sleep for power savings? I seem to recall that on a Galaxy tablet a while back, a message saying as much because I had an app left running in the background and I was not using it. I'm not...

    Tesla intrusion without phone key/card?

    Emergency door open/release mechanism? If windows were down a bit like venting, could a thief hook into this release and open the door to gain access?

    Dash Cam Not Working Check USB

    I wonder why some are having this issue but not all? No issues here, but I have a 2020 with all USB before they changed that, along with a Jeda USB hub + a Sandisk Max Endurance micro SD card and Sandisk mobile mate USB 3.0 adapter. That has been flawless, and I have not seen any of these...

    Two Model Y Household?

    I guess one positive would be sharing of wheels, if that ever became an issue, like for a spare tire or winter tires? X and Y cannot share wheels. Perhaps it is not worth mentioning. One the downside, if some kind of issue affecting the Y specifically, then both are affected. Say a recall...

    2020 MYP - needs rear tires

    Sort of on topic, but perhaps also invest in a spare tire if you have not already, so you are not in a bind and can get by for a few days while you sort it out? Modern Spare seems to be a popular choice.

    Model Y 19" Gemini Wheel and Winter Tire Package On MYP

    What ever you choose, I recommend getting the same size on all four so you can rotate them for better wear. The 21 inch Ubers are different rear and front and you cannot rotate them without unmounting the tire from the rim to reverse its direction before you can put on the opposite side. Nobody...

    Model Y 19" Gemini Wheel and Winter Tire Package On MYP

    No https://tiresize.com/comparison/ enter in your current wheel/tire combination and then the new one you want to use and compare 19 inch = diameter of the rim overall diameter of rim + rubber tire = 28 inches for MY which is 255/45R19 255/40R20 255/35R21 Only way to drop 2 inches in height via...

    Car names…

    Ever since I read an article on some guy who got a personalized plate using NULL I have wanted to try that, but I ended up chosing another name instead. Using NULL on your plate was not a good idea for him, apparently any time the traffic camera at toll gates and elsewhere had issues reading...

    Sentry mode not working

    Let me see if I can condense this so it does not become a TL;DR thing. What's the saying in real estate? Location, location, location... Well in this scenario location may not be what you think. On your laptop or computer, open maps.google.com in your browser and enter in your street...

    Optional tire size for my YLR.

    Also keep in mind that deviating from 255/40 R20 may change the overall diameter and introduce some speedometer and odometer errors. Check for yourself at Tire Size Comparison and make sure you are okay with the error in speed if you deviate from the standard size. Stock for MY is 28 inch...

    Sentry mode not working

    Have you verified your home location is correct? There are other settings that can act differently if at, or not at, home. I cannot check that right now, but something like do not lock doors when at home? Have you tried any of these, because home should be home, so if sentry is still active...

    Need one way rental from LAX to SFO

    Many years ago I contacted various car rental locations in both the starting and ending locations to see if they needed any vehicles moved, surplus at starting location, low inventory at destination.

    Any first hand experience with Tesla trade values with a low milage Tesla with extra purchased via the app?

    Do not expect your trade in value from Tesla to be based on anything besides the physical car they delivered. The only exception is that they might bump it up some if you upgraded your wheels with something else from Tesla, for ex. if you went from 19 Geminis to 21 Ubers. Other than that, they...

    Notice: Limited Deceleration

    I wish Tesla would go that extra 5 percent sometimes. You are driving a computer on wheels, equipped with cellular data, web browser and more. Why not add a simple little icon to that message or make that whole message a clickable button to pop up more information about it? If you are driving...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    So could one work around be to expand the hole in the felt cover to make it larger, so the USB connector is not hanging up on the felt and is able to be fully inserted?

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    Perhaps those who are close to the US border could use a virtual US address service, pay a small fee to get it delivered on the US side of the border for cheaper shipping from TPARTS and then cross the border to pick it up and handle the Canadian importing yourself? Langley BC is close to a...

    Rear USB C Accessory

    Not quite sure what you want. The rear USB-C ports are power only for charging, these have no data connection to the car. So what are you hoping to achieve via the rear ports that involves a hub? If you want to charge via USB-A then connect a USB-C hub with USB-A endpoints, or look for a...

    Oct 1st 2021, we ordered a Model Y White LR AWD 20”W. Now have a great August rough delivery date. Where are we in line? Anyone? We live in KCMO.

    Premium Connectivity Yearly Plan $99

    I got an e-mail from Tesla to let me know that my complementary trial period had expired, about 1-2 days after my 1 year anniversary. Whether or not they still do that, no idea. I bought June 2020, got the e-mail June 2021.

    Using Model 3 Wheels on my Model Y

    Model 3 19 inch is 235/40 R19 = 26.4 inch diameter Model Y 19 inch is 255/45 R19 = 28 inch diameter Your M3 tires are smaller and would be rotating more times per each mile when compared to proper MY tires. So you would have speedometer and odometer errors to deal with - 56.6 MPH actual when...

    All weather protection kit

    Or they have seen enough issues with earlier builds like my blue June 2020 that they are trying to be proactive? I see a bunch of posts but not many reference points, meaning the DOM of your car and its color. Could be related to a color and/or when it was built and/or the state you reside...

    All weather protection kit

    Worked for me. It is for the $90 USD kit, I used the button/link in the e-mail. First time I tried to go to the site and do it manually, that did not work for me, but using the link in the e-mail did.

    Regenerative braking on icy roads need to turn off

    No way I know of to turn off regen completely, only to adjust its strength. Early MY models had low and standard settings, newer models only have standard - you can thank Elon for that, something to do with adding a few extra miles of range so it looks better...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    Hot probably means inefficient and you should try to avoid using them. Then again, in the Tesla you will not be pushing a ton of data over that USB connection like you might on your main computer, so it all depends on the use case. How hot does it get just sitting there, no data being pushed...
