    Austin built MY LR quick review

    Did the Hertz contract ever go through? I've heard of another contract recently which seems perfect for the MYAWD. Stopping a line and moving trained people would be a giant step back. I guess priorities may have shifted at the very least.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Yea, I know. That beautiful new plant with those brand new million dollar presses and they have an assembly line running next to it with welders blasting away. Something seems wrong.

    Climate Change Denial

    Well considering the age in which it was said I believe he was trying to say we better be saving ourselves because the earth is going to go right on without us.

    Climate Change Denial

    I remember a George Carlin standup routine on climate change, which I found, that was made 30 years ago in 1992. Please watch, it attacks climate change from a different perspective.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Zen, you're much more educated on the Austin plant than I but wouldn't Austin need a totally separate assembly line for a 2170 Model Y. Should I take they already do?

    January 2022 Order Delivery Dates

    Hey guys. Just had a reality check. Thought my order date was Dec. 14, 2021, which is not the "Order placed with electronically accepted terms" of January 12, 2022. Suppose I have a new crib to chill until my estimated delivery date of August 29 - October 03. My general opinion is that by the...

    To carbon fiber or not to carbon fiber...

    I was looking for something different from the usual carbon fiber as Hunt3r stated. I found these matching real wood covers. https://hillsmade.com/products/dashboard-cover-tesla?variant=32461098909740

    CCS Adapter for North America

    I saw Alice and thought "when she's nine feet tall".

    What I have done to my MYP.........

    There definitely needs some contrast. Something like these with perhaps black nut covers and black center cap with red Tesla logo. Also possibly painting the one side of the spoke a contrasting color or even a carbon fiber wrap on the sides like they do with the Aero wheels.

    December 2021 order estimated delivery dates

    You all need to take a look at the August through November order threads. A lot of August orders are still waiting, watching their dates still getting moved out. Am I wrong? October and November groups are still waiting for VINs and getting their dates moved around. I see some Texas orders being...

    December 2021 order estimated delivery dates

    I've been looking at the November Waiting Room and some mid-November customers are still getting their dates moved around without a vin yet. It appears that the last two weeks of November orders are still in que. You can see the November crowd going crazy trying to figure out the delivery...

    December 2021 order estimated delivery dates

    WHAT? You must have taken a Sherry-Vallum cocktail to take that news so calmly after waiting as long. You've still got something to wait for with the new baby this November. Best of luck!

    October 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    Blue looks great guys! I ordered a red Y in December and thought the wheels w/o covers look pretty good. Lost_sailor's is a good example!

    do you really need a portable air compressor?

    This is not a difference of opinion, but asking more knowledgeable audience their opinion. I have a few questions about the use of tire plugs. I plugged a tire about 35 years ago, in a service garage with the tire off the car. Not hard, a little leverage and the tool punches through the hole...

    December 2021 order estimated delivery dates

    Judging from a cursory view of the October and November groups, the October group are receiving VINs. Personally, I'm looking forward to an early or mid July VIN. I expected at least a 6-7 month wait when I ordered.

    Tire wear

    If you show pictures I'll guarantee you'll have all kinds of advice on what is wrong. Also curious of wear and what tread is left on the good rear tire. However, I'd be somewhat concerned that my tire shop is willing to put on over $1,200 of new tires and not raise the issue of why one tire...

    Second Tesla Considerations

    You are going to let the prize of your life drive a boy magnet? Got my daughter a 10 year old Subaru Forester. lol

    Second Tesla Considerations

    First of all I believe the Toyota 4Runner is one of the best SUVs out there. Not known for good mileage, but one of the most capable. It will be a classic long before it stops working if you drive it part time. I am curious, why the Rivian? You have nearly all the haul, tow and dirt truck you...

    Thanks for the encouragement! I wonder if I paid Elon an extra grand I could get a video of it going down the assembly line? Like being allowed in the delivery room for your baby.

    December 2021 order estimated delivery dates

    I got a new date today with the BIG spread. It is now November 22' to February 23'.I like the change. It means my Red Model Y hasn't been forgotten. I'm pumped!

    Should I talk my wife out of an X and into a Y?

    IMHO, if your wife doesn't have her heart set on the Model X, the Model Y is a super fine car! Take your family on a European vacation for the difference and teach them not all that glitters is gold!

    How appropriate! For those not familiar with the movie Airplane (1980) Otto was the inflatable auto pilot. Please Google- Airplane Otto Pilot

    Naturally, in the Tesla tradition the TT-30 adapter at EVSE for $89.95 is sold out.

    December 2021 order estimated delivery dates

    Heh, I've been tempted too! The MYLR is beautiful in it's simplicity and I can live with a second off my 0-60 time. A few hundred dollars of accessories and it has most of the features I like. I see you didn't get the 20" either. Remember why you bought the car and walk away from the Kool-Aid. lol

    Damn Man! I'm so happy for you! Wow, I would have never taken the initiative. Apparently that "meek shall inherit the earth" saying only works after you receive your Tesla.

    Unnatural Curbage on MY 19" Gemini wheels

    With the 18" wheels you could also go with a wider profile for a more cushioned ride.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Not wanting to hi-jack the conversation from battery builds but I started to hear something about a new state-of-the-art painting system at Austin. Anything interesting on that? I suppose that is why it'd be nice to get some close-ups of the Austin Model Y for finish?

    Can someone confirm this plug type?

    Pretty good for charging. You need that 6-50 Tesla adapter and your charging cord. You should be charging like 30 miles per hour of charging.

    2022.8.3

    Noobie question, considering I haven't picked up my car yet. Being a retired technician I always like to be on the cutting edge, ie. updates. It seems Tesla has a way of using their customer base as a mobile lab. What do you think, if anything may have been avoided if you had kept the updates in...

    Your first Tesla is like your first baby

    Being the father of grown children I can testify that a Model YP with FSD, tow and some aftermarket wheels in the garage is a WHOLE lot cheaper than rearing one offspring. Maybe a Model X Plaid if they go to a State University.

    I've been here a few months and haven't heard mention of the grill inserts. I've got to get out from under this rock.

    Don't get discouraged. I ordered a few days before you and they did the same thing to me, a date further out and very broad. Within a month they moved it again to a July/August date.

    Campsite experiences: is 14-50 or TT-30 more common?

    Thank you so much for your reply! Well maybe that Tab 320s is still on the list! A little lighter and a little less of a footprint for the 66 year old bachelor life. lol I could use a tent for that. I agree with travel time in retirement. You have to remember the 7 day vacation and 12 hours in...

    Mobile Charger no longer included

    This was in my letter from my Tesla advisor at time of purchase 12/14/21 under the category of charging. The letter was sent January 13'th, 2022. 2. NEMA-14-50 (dryer) outlet – This provides a charge rate of 20-30 mi/ hour. If you opt for this, you will need to purchase a NEMA 14-50 adapter for...

    Does anyone have definitive written communication confirming that the Mobile Charging Connector change will affect only new orders?

    We put a key on your gas cap. You can buy a key at our store for $200, but we're out now. The gas station you go to have keys and will unlock your gas tank if you need to use their pumps and pay their price. Oh, your gas station doesn't have a key? Relax, you can back order a key anytime. Most...

    Oh this was my retirement dream with a Tab 400. Beautiful trailer. I thought I might go with the Tab 320s for towing sake and I'm single. Availability pretty much dampened my thoughts though so decided to get a Model Y and travel/camp. Do you mind saying your range and how do you manage the...

    Mobile Charger no longer included

    Receiving my new Model Y this summer, OD 12/14/21. I bought my Model Y with camping and travel in mind. I know, stupid idea to try in an electric SUV, but I'm kind of wild and crazy guy. The money part of it isn't the biggest trouble for me. After the 65K+ car, and at considerable expense of a...

    Tow Hitch - Tongue Weight Capacity

    I saw where someone bought an after market hitch, which I think I wish I had done. The Tesla rack is a Type II hitch which limits the weight to tow 3,500 lbs. A Type III hitch may have completely different numbers which is rated for a 5,000 lb. tow. The tongue weight has nothing to do with the...

    Tesla has officially removed the mobile connector as a standard accessory with every new car purchase; now a $400 separate purchase

    I don't need anxiety needing a cable when I pick up my car. I don't care if it is included or not. I just need a box to check for charging cables, right below the $1,000 tow hitch and right above the $12,000 FSD option. Not a problem.

    I say with humor, "What would Bernie say?" Yes, I think infrastructure was a topic this year. Would love to see our country at least leaning in this direction. I hope to live to see it. The way I understood the Tesla chargers going public was that it was dependent on getting federal funding. If...

    Serious Issue with our 2021 Model 3 - Reported to TSB

    Agreed! According to a Washington Post article the NHTSA had 34 complaints between last November 2021 to the middle of February and after the article they received 250 complaints in two weeks. So Tesla's public accountability started last November. My Rant: In our relationship with...
