    Yes, indeed. The recommendations are laser touch free.

    Hand Wash or Touchless in SFV / Los Angeles

    Glad it worked out for you. I’m not sure where in the Valley you’re at but there is another drive-thru carwash like the Chevron. This one is a Mobil, and I believe it’s in Van Nuys. I’ve never been but a quick google search helped me locate it. https://yelp.to/2s7I8jAdmrb

    Hand Wash or Touchless in SFV / Los Angeles

    There is a drive-thru touchless carwash at the Chevron on Topanga Canyon(Across the street from the California Chicken Cafe). I’ve taken it there plenty of times and it has been great. I normally get out and fry whatever spots and remaining after the air dryer. I think it is 11 bucks. I’ve seen...

    Will your car have black or white seats? This is my Model 3 with 30% Here is my Model Y with 40% As you can see, with white seats, you have to go around 20% or so.The Model Y has black seats, and it is 40%, which makes it look a lot darker. However, the Model Y feels significantly cooler...

    LA -> Vegas roadtrip?

    Hotels will charge your car without a charge. At least at the Aria, they charged the car up without charging me.

    LA -> Vegas roadtrip?

    That’s true. I mean, you can always order the food, and take it back to the charger. You have your car charge while you enjoy some mediocre Greek food.

    LA -> Vegas roadtrip?

    At Baker, you can always stop at the Mad Greek.

    LA -> Vegas roadtrip?

    Even though Danger is my middle name, that would’ve been cutting really close. From my house to the Baker supercharger is about 200 miles. I started with 225 miles or so. It is better to be safe than sorry. Plus, at Yermo, you could stop at EddieWorld.

    LA -> Vegas roadtrip?

    I took my SRMY August of 2021 and it was perfectly fine. I stopped twice back and forth. The charge stations were great. This is what it cost.

    Tesla - do you test your updates?!

    And that’s your prerogative. I’m fine with the older version that I have. If I had the option to go back to an older one after I update, I would but Tesla does not give you that choice. I haven’t had any issues with my current version. I don’t want nor need a rapid update.
  13. RedWhite19

    Tesla - do you test your updates?!

    I haven’t updated the software in a long time in either car. I’m still on 2021.40.6 on both Model 3 and Y. I’ve read too much negative things about the current updates.

    Two Model Y Household?

    I’ve got a MYSR and a M3SR+. Why not go after a M3P? I enjoy driving both cars but I’m not sure how’d I feel if I had two of the same Model’s. Granted, you’d be getting a MYP, which is blistering fast compared to a MYSR+ but they are very much similar in size and whatnot.

    Tesla Model Y Standard Range AWD to be priced at $59,990 USD

    The Prius can actually do a 100? I always felt like a chariot and a horse was faster. But it is funny, I’ve had a number of first generation Prius’ try to race me. At first, my reaction was Then it was..

    Tesla Model Y Standard Range AWD to be priced at $59,990 USD

    Let’s get serious. No Prius driver drives 75-85MPH. Majority are coasting between 55 and 60MPH on the freeway and no more than 40MPH on the streets. No offense but Prius drivers are the worst.

    Any configuration regrets?

    I never noticed any brightness of the white seats. They’re white, not reflective silver. But neat, glad you finally got your order in. Congratulations.

    Any configuration regrets?

    My Model 3 is red with a white interior and 19 inch sport wheels, hence the name. My Model Y, is base to its core. White, black and the 19 wheel. I ordered my Model 3 from the website. The Model Y is a SR. A dealer found this for me. Since they were no long available, he found a white with...

    You’re in LA, correct? If you’re in the SFV, take it to Tint Master’s in Canoga Park. Talk to Robert. He did both of my Tesla’s and he’s done about 5-6 of my cars overall. He did the windshields without any problems. Great work, as always.

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    That’s understandable. But as others have noted a wrap is not permanent. A wrap lasts, what? 5-6 years? You’re going to spend 3k+ to wrap your car and then it’s going to begin to fade and peal? This is one of the reasons I have not wrapped my white Model Y. For me, red with white was the...

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    MSM will now be more common since it is a free option. I’ve mentioned this before, people choose white because it is easy to take care of and it is free. People love anything that is free. They probably do not care about the color of the car. If red was free and white was a 2k option, then red...

    New LFP or mid/short-range MY?

    Range is a bit overrated. If you daily commute is not 200 miles then I do not see an issue. I’ve a SR+ and a SRMY and I’ve had zero issues with the range. I’ve made the trip to Vegas from LA a couple times with the SRMY. I stopped a couple times but it was no biggie.

    One of my neighbors has a silver one and I’ve seen the obsidian one in person as well. It is quite shinny. The silver was originally going to look like this. But it was a bit different.
  36. RedWhite19

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    Remember when Tesla offered silver and obsidian? They both look quite good in person but they apparently did not sell well. I guess, it is that old saying, where “you want those things that you can’t get anymore.”

    Model Y SR has 980 Motor

    From what I read in another thread here on TMC, the SRMY might have a MYP engine in the back. This is why it states that it does 0-60 in 5.3 seconds. Post #7 https://teslamotorsclub.com/tmc/threads/how-big-is-the-battery.248724/#post-6185725

    I mean, you can. I just do not know what kinda of damage it could do to your seats. Or you can go to TSportline and they’ll do an installation of pretty much any color you want. I don’t think it is worth the money but some people go with the option...

    Too bright? No, not at all. People are more worried about discoloring from jeans or other residues. After having it for about a year and a half, it is still perfect. Only thing I notice is hairs that get left behind. I’ve got long hair, so I notice it, but I vacuum my car every couple a weeks...

    Well, I didn’t have much of a choice to be honest. The Model Y you see if a SRMY. The car was already built and the dealer found it for me. This is when Tesla had stoped making them and took them off their menu. The dealer found cars with cars with only black interior. If I could pick, I...

    Help me finalize color choice! Blue vs White vs Red

    Everybody and their mother’s have white. People go for white for the simple reason(s), that’s it is free, and it is easier to maintain. I’ve got a Red Model 3 and a white Model Y. I’ll get my Model Y wrapped sooner or later. Go with red. You won’t regret it.

    Model Y SR has 980 Motor

    That’s right, you swapped your SR+ for the LR. But you know what’s funny is that I get better range with my SRMY than I do with my SR+. But then again, my SRMY is base whereas my SR+ has the 19’s and it drives more sporty.
