    Ford requiring owners of F-150 Lightnings to not sell them in first year

    This will be interesting, I got an email from Ford saying my lightening order is to be built Aug 1 and gave me a VIN assigned. Unfortunately they had previously told me all 22 production was full and please don’t cancel your order, then 2 weeks later took my configuration and deposit with no...

    DIY: Model Y Painted Calipers

    IMHO: Black on white will stand out. Black calipers are barely noticeable vs unpainted for the effort.

    I’ve never even seen a ford lately. is that a new compact SUV or something?

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Finally got mine ordered. I received the “you didn’t make the cut, pleAse don’t can your order we hope to get you a 2023 model” email about a month ago, then just last week got a “it’s time to configured your order” email. The web site said June-July delivery when I configured it and committed...

    What's your next EV after Tesla?

    Really? Guess I shouldn’t be surprised, the company sells $100,000 sedans with plastic radiators. #BringBackTheE38

    DIY: Model Y Painted Calipers

    This is an interesting thread… back in the day I would have asked how folks were heat treating/curing the high temp paint with the brakes still on the car. I suppose a Tesla’s brakes never actually are called upon to stop the car. Is it really even necessary to use high temp paint? Does using it...

    Better in that I’ll get one the kinks are known if not resolved? Was kinda thinking a first year electric F150 would be an historic vehicle. ‘23 kinda doubt it in my lifetime.

    Just got an email from ford, 2022 orders are closed. I may have a chance to order a 2023 some time this summer. Good thing i already ordered a RAM.

    source? I haven’t read that and I’m rather skeptical of the claim and the business philosophy that would lead GM to conclude that is their best and highest use of resources.

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    I have decided not to order a lightening. The ram limited interior is just too nice and too much cheaper than a Lightening Lariat. Placed the order for the ram. now just need to figure out how to get my $100 back from Ford and wish them well. I was excited to order a lightening but the product...

    Mustang Mach-E GT Performance VS. Model Y Performance

    Are we still talking about Y and Mach E or are we on to lightening? 0.3 might good for the lightening!

    Mustang Mach-E GT Performance VS. Model Y Performance

    The accord of EV’s, that’s some high praise. I have owned multiple accords as well. I hope the Y is as great a car over time as the accords were.

    The ram with the air suspension is the way to go if ride quality is your goal. And if you get the limited interior… it’s nicer than a lot of luxury sedans.

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    Guess that cements my thoughts. Dealer called me and told me I should get my email yesterday, no email. No email today. I think I’m just going to order a RAM limited and save 20 grand and have a truck this summer.

    How many will look into the F-150 Lightning?

    I got a call from my dealer saying I can come in Monday to order a truck. This will make us an all electric family ( aside from toys). I am not terribly concerned about that but I do wonder, having a kid who will be driving, is insurance going to cost more than the truck with a 16 year old in a...

    So is it more or less than the online configurator? Dealer market adjustment take it over 100?

    You think that price is awful wait until the dealer market adjusts you and Ford raises the price 20% for ‘23!

    Model Y now unaffordable for most of us

    Just for good measure I went over to the rolls Royce forum and complained on there that the prices are stupid and I can buy a model Y for 1/10th the price and I am NOT buying a rolls Royce until they get this back under control.

    My brother, was clicking refresh on the web site to reserve as they were announcing it, received a call today the dealer is ready for him to come in and order the truck.

    Interesting F-150 status email

    Sadly I received the dreaded “not everyone is getting a 2022, please don’t cancel your order” email yesterday.

    Help me decide: Model Y or Mach-E

    If they try to spike me with 30 grand would be the last Ford I ever attempted to buy. I would go buy a ram 1500 and pocket 50 grand for whenever the cybertruck is ready.

    Interesting F-150 status email

    The most important thing to check on an EV is the condition of the dealer installed undercoating and rust proofing, as well as fabric protection wear and possible need for reapplication. Though being wear related, this comes as a customer expense.

    . . . but what do you miss from your old car?

    I miss not minding parking in the cart corral at Kroger. Even with sentry, the paint is just too weak to chance it.

    Interesting F-150 status email

    I am a first few hours reservation holder, did not receive this email. Hopefully that means I will be able to order one. Thanks for giving me hope and sorry to hear about your luck. Take comfort in knowing my F150 will be in a landfill before my cybertruck is ready at this point. You’ll get your...

    Experience with Juicebox?

    I have a juicebox as well, it works great, I leave the Tesla adapter on it permanently as well. I don’t have another electric car at the moment but hoping for a lightening in ‘22 and it should work for both. Let the Tesla manage the charge. You can tell the juicebox it’s a Tesla if you want but...

    Driver seat track/rail extensions for tall drivers?

    Have the believe anything is possible here with a touch of fab work. There is plenty of room behind the driver seat. Trouble is a lot of shops won’t touch it because they don’t want to be liable if you smack your head on the rear glass instead of the nice soft airbag as Tesla intended. How are...

    Beta FSD - Still waiting in Ohio

    You forgot one: Ohio, Indiana’s largest suburb, is paved mostly with orange barrels and temporary street signs which is not a great environment to deploy FSD. I lived there 38 years and cannot recall a time when I-75 was not a hot mess. The humans can’t even drive on it. FSD hasn’t got a chance.

    Secondary account software updates

    Thanks for the tip, I checked both in iOS settings and in the app itself, everything is enabled. Oh well. I guess if all the things a software update could fubar, I am not worried about not getting a notification for an administrative task on a car that isn’t even mine as far as the car is...

    Secondary account software updates

    Interestingly I was watching for 40.6, wife’s car and account shared with me. No alert that software update was available, no alert that it completed. Car has indeed updated. I will keep looking. Previously I have gotten alerts on update completion regardless of whether I set them in motion or not.

    Driver seat track/rail extensions for tall drivers?

    I couldn’t figure this out but then it dawned on me. Yeah babe, that right there is an 8 inch gap at least. I’m a little slow but I’m with you now OxBrew!

    Driver seat track/rail extensions for tall drivers?

    I’m your height but I have tyrannosaurus arms compared to yours. I’d like an extra inch or so of travel but it’s close enough I just live with it. E38 BMW was the only car I ever owned that had enough adjustment I didn’t run it to full stop rearward and up, just used to being outside the design...

    Redesign/4680 "Holdout Buyers" Discussion

    That’s true today. What if some other other manufacturer is making compelling EV’s in 3 years? My bet is with you, but maybe some people are just so wealthy, it’s not the financial sense motivating them. Maybe they would sooner watch the golden globes than sell a car privately.

    15 Tesla Semi electric trucks are expected to be delivered to PepsiCo this year

    Seriously though, maybe 5kW ish system in 320 sq ft, so if you could tilt panels, at best 5 kW without charge losses etc. at 300 Whr/mile in a model Y, you’re providing less than 1/3 of the needed power if you never turn away from perfect sun angle. That’s for a Y, semi won’t even be close to...
