    What's everyone's electricity bill increase to/by?

    I've had my MYP for 1 year now. Been comparing previous bills from the past 7 years. The worst was a $35 dollar increase in one month compared to that same month the past 7 years. Still going to the same job, same routes, and roughly same mileage. I used to fill-up my last car (2016 Cadillac...

    Michelin Pilot All Season 4 thoughts

    I got them on my MYP back in November. Mounted on the stock Uber's. Only been in the snow a couple of times this winter. Nothing crazy, maybe a few inches. They work well IMO. Between the combination of AWD and the All Season Tires, the car just goes without issue.

    Plug in Daily or as needed?

    FWIW, I got to drive a '21 Hyundai Kona electric and the manual says something similar. Something like the car was designed to work at optimum efficiency when climate was set to ~72 degrees. Not that high heat or low AC will hurt it, just reduce efficiency some. Makes sense.

    Plug in Daily or as needed?

    My round trip commute each day is 20 miles. I plug in every 2-3 days in the colder temps. Warmer weather, once a week. Maybe twice.

    Corrective steering applied, off road detected

    Same here. Only started recently. No real reason for it when it happens. Could this have something to do with the latest update I downloaded a week or so ago?

    Where to hide or stash a key card on the outside of the vehicle.

    Tape? Velcro is your friend. A small strip of it on the card should not affect it.

    Model Y Performance on drag strip + 0-60 + Model 3 comparison

    I'm jealous you can get to the strip and still retain 97%soc. Is the Strip in your backyard?

    TPMS Question

    Thanks! I'll call TR and see if they'll sell me one.

    TPMS Question

    Looking to purchase ONE TPMS for my MYP. Bought a new front wheel as I curbed one a few months ago. Very soon I'll be replacing the stock Pirelli's with All Season Michelin's. Then keep the 'curbed' front wheel(and stock Pirelli) as a quick backup in case I get a flat tire/bent rim in the...

    Where are the door handles...? 😳

    Same problem - Door handles are tough to find in the dark. While we're on the subject, don't you think the door handles are overly complex? I mean, wouldn't a simple button on the outside, mounted flush, work better to 'pop' the door open?

    USB-C for Music only - 'Loading Error'?

    lol I'm a 53 yr. old Truck driver. Sometimes I'm amazed I've figured out as much as I have. How the hell do I reformat my music files to a compatible type? And what Type is compatible with the car?

    MYP - Time for new tires

    So, have you done this w/ Michelin All Seasons yet? Any interference/rubbing? I plan on swapping out the stock tires to Michelin All Seasons very soon and would definitely like a little more sidewall to protect my Uber's, both front and rear. Or would the Michelin All Seasons still provide...

    Uberturbine Question?

    Will the Front wheel fit on the rear? I'm talking 'in a pinch' scenario, in case of a flat tire. Planning on replacing ALL stock tires w/ all-seasons, but thinking of picking up 1 extra front wheel, then keeping one front wheel with stock tire on it,,, just in case of a flat.

    Usb-C ports in front

    Just to add to my confusion... Today I put some music on my phone (Galaxy S8+), from the same PC and same CD's that I load onto my USB's. Plugged it into the car with the same USB-C adapter, and it works! Thing is, I seem to be able to only play one song and it stops. Then I need to select...

    I've tried all 3 of formats I see offered - The ones mentioned in above posts. All of my music has been loaded on to the PC from CD's. I've never downloaded a song in my life.

    I did not, but I did load some music in the new Tesla drive and just tried it. No change. The music shows up on the screen but when I tap any song I get 'Loading Error'

    Usb-C ports in front

    Last night I did format my drive in my car. I removed the Tesla drive and plugged my USB into the USB-a glovebox port to format it. I'm going to try putting some music on a Tesla Drive - I have an extra which has never been used. Any reason I can't use an adapter and plug itinto the USB-c port...

    Usb-C ports in front

    The biggest problem here is that you guys are (more than) most likely better at this stuff than I am. I figure this out as I go. I never even knew about 'formatting' a drive until a few days ago - I just searched around for it and clicked on it. With my previous car(2016 ATS-V), I purchased a...

    Usb-C ports in front

    Tried this tonight with 2 different drives. No Luck. Like I said, I plugged my drive into a New Y at the Tesla dealership the other day with the same 'Loading Error', so I'm thinking it's a problem with the cars software? I'm out of ideas.
  21. Hamrhead

    Usb-C ports in front

    Actually, it's multiple drives showing the same error. I keep thinking I'm doing something wrong they way I add music files to the drive, but they work just fine in every other vehicle, so I'm stumped? I will try your idea over the weekend - Thanks.

    Usb-C ports in front

    Was at the Tesla Dealer today so I plugged my USB into a brand new Y - Same 'Loading Error' as my car. so that tells me it's not a problem with my car specifically.

    Usb-C ports in front

    Same result unfortunately. Kind of expected though. I guess at this point I'm going to try to find someone with a Model Y and possibly try my USB in their car? Or theirs in my car? Don't know what else to do.

    Got the new Samsung 3.1 drive today but same result - The music shows up on the screen but when I tap any song - Loading Error. Exactly what kind of USB-C adapter are you using? I may as well try that too.

    Yes. Purchased my '21 MYP in the beginning of March this year. I did try using my USB stick(s) in the glove box w/o the adapter - Same 'Loading Error' result.

    Usb-C ports in front

    Just ordered one of these, but 32GB. Hopefully it'll solve my issue. Worst case, it cost me $12. FWIW, I have three different drives and they all do the same thing in my car, but they are all a few years old. Maybe I just need something more up to date? We'll see. Again, I appreciate the...

    Exactly which Samsung USB drive do you have? If that could possibly solve my issue, I'd take a chance and buy one.

    Usb-C ports in front

    Same result - 'Loading Error' In the Safety & Security section you can reformat the USB in the glove box port. So I did. Brought it back in the house and plugged it into the PC, where I erased the Tesla Cam files. Then reloaded some music. Same result. I do appreciate the ideas - Thanks. If...

    Usb-C ports in front

    Just tried reformatting my drive to both exFat and Fat32 with no success. Still Loading Error. Would the type of drive I'm using make a difference? SanDisk Cruzer Blade 16gb. Cheap, but it always worked in other cars.

    Usb-C ports in front

    Another dumb question. When I plug my USB-a drives (with a USB-c adapter) into these front console ports to listen to my music (Just music, nothing else), it all shows up on the screen, but I get 'Error Loading' when I play any song. Today I plugged them into a Model S (USB-a) and they worked...

    How well does the Tesla app work for you

    I've had my MYP for 4 months now and do have some connecting issues similar to yours. I did check the APP store a month ago and it had an update, which seemed to improve things a little. Sometimes I have to turn ON airplane mode, then turn it OFF again, to get the app to wake up. I can always...

    0-60 false advertising!

    It's also entertaining when you randomly smash on it around 25mph. Say, coming out of a curve in the road.

    Do the Michelin's provide any more wheel protection than the stock tires?

    Pic Under The Hood w/ Frunk Removed

    So I'm guessing that thing in front of the 12V battery is the Compressor that will be replaced under warranty on my car? I've got the intermittent A/C & Heat problem (Sometimes it works/Sometimes not). My appt. is next month. Thanks for the pic!

    Any MYP Owners Running Stock?

    I plan on staying stock other than replacing the Summer Tires with All-Seasons once the cooler weather arrives. Until then the Pirellis stay on. 1,6xx miles so far after 3+ months.

    Yeah. My last 4 DD's were Cadillac V cars, so I am willing to sacrifice some ride comfort for performance.

    MYP - Time for new tires

    Who makes an All-Season 21" Tire that will fit the Uber's? I'd want the tire to be a bit wider for some wheel protection.

    MYP - Time for new tires

    I think this is the direction I'm headed as well. I like the look of the Uber's, but really want an All-Season Tire that will last a while. Plus I'm tired of swapping wheels/Tires in the Spring and Fall like I was doing with my 2 previous cars.
  45. Hamrhead

    Has anyone regretted the color the chose enough to try trading in shortly after purchasing?

    1st choice would've been Silver. For a DD, IMO that's the easiest to keep looking clean. Otherwise, I love Black, but it's always dirty/dusty. White is a bit bland on this car, and that Charcoal color is too much w/ the wheels and moldings close to the same. Blue or Red. This time I chose Red.

    FS: T Sportline 19" TSS Forged Wheel/Tire Package

    Are all 4 wheels the same size(Not staggered)? From their website it looks as if they are only offered in one size - Just confirming. What size Tires? No Damage to Wheels or Tires (rash, scratches / plugs, patches)? Could you shoot me some pictures to [email protected] or post them here?

    How To Keep Car 'ON' If I Exit The Vehicle?

    Tried this today and it worked. It was the middle of the day so the lights were off, but the A/C kept going while I was out of the car for 5 minutes or so. (Phone was in the car) Thanks for the idea!
