    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    On the Whirlpool Spreadsheet there are Brisbane deliveries showing starting from the Saturday the 6th. That was the first date in my initial EDD (6-20 Aug) so looks like the position of my car on the boat etc has put me back from those earlier delivery slots to dead smack in the middle of my...

    Me one page back. I have my delivery time for 11am on Friday 12 August.

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Has anyone had any experience taking delivery of a Tesla if you are not the registered owner? Here is my situation: I ordered the Y through my existing tesla account that I have my Model 3 on. The Y however is going to be registered in my wife's name as it will primarily be her car. On the...

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Mine gave me a choice of two days and four time slots on each of those days. I chose the first day and the earliest time slot because I couldn’t possibly cope with knowing that it could currently be in my possession but isn’t.

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Got my text. Scheduled for 11:00 am Friday 12 August. Dead smack in the middle of my previous EDD. Brisbane.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I don't doubt your experiences at all. We all know that things can be terribly inconsistent. My feeling is that for some reason some roads have not been tagged as highways for what ever reason. As others have mentioned and pointed to above. The official Tesla stance is that in Australia we do...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I don't believe it ever has. Source being my own observations and feedback from others on this forum when I asked the same question a year ago when I first got my Model 3. In the full year of ownership it has never once recognised a speed sign on a highway. Around town, all the time. On a...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Just reporting back on this update. I reckon the forward collision warning has gotten way more sensitive. In a short drive today I had it go ballistic at me three times and even apply the auto emergency braking at one stage unnecessarily. In all three instances it was bumper to bumper traffic...

    Model Y Accessories for Australia

    I have ordered probably 15-20 accessories for my Model 3 over the past year from AliExpress and it can be a mixed bag. There are many many sellers on the site and some are better than others. Some post faster than others. Some use slower postage methods to lower the price. And even though the...

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Yeah I sold my Ford Everest to get my 3 and the thing I miss most is a tow bar. So with the Y I’ll be getting one for sure. Came close a few times to getting the aftermarket Stealth hitch for the 3 but will get this official one for the Y for sure as it enables the proper tow software package as...

    The Stealth Hitch is now complied in Australia thanks to TOCA!

    The tow hitch is now up on the Australian Tesla store for the Model Y. Says “Coming soon” at the moment but I’ll be getting it installed as soon as it is. https://shop.tesla.com/en_au/product/model-y-tow-package

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    I remember a year back when I was waiting on my Model 3 the folks in the Model 3 waiting room thread all seemed convinced that if you changed your avatar picture to a squirrel you would get a delivery date. So you who are desperately waiting could try that. :)

    You can finance things like electric cars, solar panels, storage batteries and other updates to your house to make it more energy efficient. The interest rate is 2.84%. I don't know a heap more about it as my broker is looking after it all.

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    I'm getting delivery in Brisbane and my EDD still says 6-20 August but as per the comment above some Brisbane orders have had their EDD updated from what mine was to starting from 26th and 27th July. To tell you the truth I hope mine doesn't change. I'm financing the Y with a Green loan that...

    Windscreen stone chip repair - Tesla service center appointment or local repairer?

    I have found that the Tesla windscreen chips much easier than any other car I have owned. My last car I had for three years and did a heap of outback driving and never got one chip. I’ve had the 3 for just coming up on a year, driven on mostly main roads and have three chips. (The most recliner...

    The matt on the silver looks awesome! That would be my vote.

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    I have an EDD and haven’t made final payment. I’ll pay it 4-5 days before the date I get as a solid delivery date rather than the range I currently have. I’d rather keep the money in my account getting interest for me than give it to them too early to do the same.

    August 06 - August 20 Brisbane Delivery Pity it won't be August 4th because then it would be exactly one year after I Picked up my 3. That would have been super cool. I mean it will be pretty close to a year anyway but exactly would have been fun!

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    In my case it was a confluence of hundreds of cars needing to be delivered out of a brand new delivery centre with not all charging infrastructure set up yet etc. so I was understanding of the situation and the delivery guy was very apologetic. He did promise to use my referral code on the next...

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    How exciting for you. I did the same when I ordered my 3. Had the charger installed a few weeks before my car arrived so it was all ready. Which was lucky because my 3 only had about 25% battery on delivery and I live over an hour away from the delivery centre so I only just made it home. So was...

    Question for New Zealand Model 3 recent deliveries

    Assuming NZ are in the same situation as us here in Australia. Which I’m pretty sure they are. It’s only cars ordered from yesterday on that will no longer come with the UMC. So Max’s car will come with one for sure.

    The Universal Mobile Connector is no longer standard equipment with new orders after 8 July 2022??

    No sorry. I mean I do know lots of people in Perth, my wife’s family are from there, but I don’t know any electricians there sorry.

    The Universal Mobile Connector is no longer standard equipment with new orders after 8 July 2022??

    The wall charger is only $750 and I got mine installed for only $300 the guy did a great job too. So more like 1k. I actually had mine installed before my car arrived so have never taken the UMC out of the sub trunk. It’s reassuring to know it’s there though if ever I get stuck somewhere...

    Yep. I got my final invoice. Looks like mine was built on 29/06/2022 which was the day the VINs got allocated.

    I'm not interested in a trade in but I do like that word "soon" they used in this message.

    Me too. Was just about to post the same thing. I assume that means that updated delivery estimates are forthcoming though.

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    Which is exactly what the SA said. My comment was specifically about VIN and that there is a small chance they will change and you felt you had to comment that the SA had no idea what they were talking about. How can I read that in any other way than you know different. And the fact that they...

    And you do? You know more about VIN allocation than people who work for Tesla? Please share this knowledge with us then. Please tell us exactly how you know that no one has ever had a VIN change. I’m dying to know.

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    One thing to remember regarding VIN allocation that my SA reinforced to me today is that the type of VIN allocation that those of us who ordered Ys currently have is a “soft” allocation. That’s why we have to use the plugin or search the source code to find it. My SA said that that is still...

    No I ordered Induction wheels and have my VIN so do many others on the Whirlpool Google Doc that was linked before.

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Yeah I didn't consult my wife either and this car is for her! I was sitting on the can refreshing the order page on my phone and she was out the back yard mowing the lawn. I didn't feel I had time to wipe and then run out and get her to turn off the mower and discuss, so I just ordered. I was in...

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    They won't start pestering you until you have a firm delivery date and that is likely to be close to two months away yet so you have time. That two month time frame is based on Veda saying that the first shipment of Ys was set for Aug 22 according to what he knows at this stage.

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Tesla will tell you it might alter your place in line if you haven't provided all details but seeing as the cars are still the best part of 2 months at least away from getting delivered, you should still have time up your sleeve before it really jeopardises your place in line.
  44. muddie

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    I have a VIN! And yes see the same "Please pay off your remaining balance prior to delivery" notice. The VIN is still hidden but I am using the VIN finder plugin and it can see it. For those wondering I ordered at 10.20am on the Friday morning they went on sale and I ordered a Red RWD, Black...

    Practical kilometres in a M3 long range

    My LR is nearly a year old now and I went to visit my sister down the Gold Coast, a 380km round trip. I left with 95% battery and got home with 9%. Was doing 120km/ph most of the way.

    Yeah it’s $5000 to go from EAP to FSD. So basically just the rest of the cost. No monetary penalty for doing it in stages if you want to try EAP first.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Got 2022.16.2 this morning. Had my longest gap 43 days on 2022.12.3.2 then three updates in the space of a week. There really is no rhyme nor reason is there. Oh and my “Last checked” date and time are updating properly now.

    Aftermarket Wheels on Model 3

    I know this isn’t strictly a aftermarket wheel question but there are so many knowledgeable wheel people in this thread I figured this would be the bast place to ask the question and get it seen by someone who would know the answer. I have a M3LR with 19” Sport wheels and we are hopefully...

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Yeah I ordered the induction wheels from the outset. I did the order for my wife seeing as I was madly refreshing the order page at the time and she said she wasn't fussed what I ordered. But when we went down to the Brisbane showroom to look at the Y as they had a red one (the colour I got...
