    Purple powder coat on standard Gemini wheels

    Very nice, looking to do the same. Black with red painted brakes. Notice any scratches when replacing the aero covers?

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    I think LR RWD is done. This brings MY offerings in line with Model 3. Kinda sucks that I cancelled my order on January 28th and bought a MY LR AWD just in time for my wife's birthday. It fit our budget when we decided to remove FSD. Don't think we would have kept FSD at $7K as we are now...

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    You know Tesla. Longer you wait. The better they get. So far the heated steering wheel that my wife wants has been added. She thinks SR is not enough range. We are now looking at the LR AWD. I'm sure they'll release the LR RWD as soon as we pull the AWD trigger. What has been your Wh/m...

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    4680's will be cheaper to produce and give Tesla more profit. Performance to customers should be the same as previous batteries. More ridged frame and air suspension will make a Performance difference.

    Model Y Long Range Rear Wheel Drive (LR RWD)

    Why would he try to talk you out of canceling an order for a car they don't plan to make? Was he steering you to AWD or SR?

    Model Y Long Range Rear Wheel Drive (LR RWD)

    You might not want to do the math on how much you would have made on Tesla stock instead of holding a pre-order for 2 years. For me its time to *sugar* or get off the pot. Go LR AWD or SR RWD. I think Elon has spoken. This new trim level aligns MY with M3 so we kinda should have seen it coming...

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    Sucks for all of us. I put my order in when FSD was $6K. Problem for us is that Tesla does not owe us a car, only our $2.5K back. After that we decide: Go SR RWD Go LR RWD Wait longer for a Tesla surprise Get a Mach-e When we put in our order LR RWD with FSD was $55K. Now SR RWD with FSD...

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    I certainly hope that you get some solution that makes you happy from Christian in SJ, but it sound to me that he was just more diplomatically saying "cancel and order standard or cancel and order AWD." The difference in price between the standard and the AWD makes up for what you would have...

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    I don't regret not switching to AWD in December 2019 as I don't need AWD, extra range, or even a new car right now. CA living has some advantages. But, had I cancelled my order in December 2019 when RWD was removed and bought 20 shares of TSLA with my $2,500.00 order fee it would be worth $17K...

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    I am also waiting to hear about the RWD LR was his tweets lead us to expect an announcement this month. Instead he gives us the 7 seater. Curious to see how they fit the 3rd row in. I heard on Tesla Daily that the 2021 Model 3 will be getting a new steering wheel that is heated. That should...

    RWD -> AWD -> Delivery -> Pure Joy

    You said you were giving up the wait and you did. I'm staying in the RWD fight. I'm hearing rumors that production may start before years end. Otherwise congratulations on your new ride. It looks slick. I like your 19 inch wheels and may be making the change myself to improve tire wear and...

    Anyone else 100% getting a Model Y LR RWD? Let's connect!

    September 2019 order. $6K FSD. The weird wording of the announcement that Tesla had no plans to produce the car at this time lead me to believe they were just trying to push AWD orders. I didn't take the bait. In part thanks to Covid decreasing our need for a 2nd car at this time. Tesla...

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    Better for us. We live in the SF Bay Area. We never drive off-road, it rarely rains, and we travel to Tahoe rarely, only traveling on plowed roads. Sub 5.5 sec 0-60 is fast enough for us. No need to pay extra to lug around a 2nd motor and get decreased range.

    RWD LR Order?

    Feeling the same way. If Tesla called me today for delivery the answer would be no. My business is down 95% since March 15th. My wife lost her job last week. The car we were going to replace with the Model Y hasn't moved in 3 months I'm feeling the same way. If Tesla called me for...

    Tesla website and App down?

    I am getting the same error message, and can't log into my account. So many advantages to a centrally connected car, but when this happens it really sucks. I park my car 2 miles from my home to get a free charge over night. I get my daily excercise walking to get it in the morning. My...

    Keep my Model S or get a Model Y?

    You have a 2015 with an 8 year battery and powertrain warranty as well as free supercharging. Unless depreciation is of no concern to you I would keep that car until 2023 and replace it with a CYBRTRK. I know the Tesla pull to want the latest and greatest that Tesla offers. Maybe you have...

    RWD LR Order?

    I'm with you. Besides, late 2020 is when they said they'd start producing as we know the more expensive variants first. Also considering a ramp up and a huge backlog I didn't expect to get a car until late 2021 or even 2022. I suspect Tesla may never make the LR RWD. Here is how I think they...

    RWD LR Order?

    I'm very disappointed that Teala did not communicate with LR RWD order holder at the time they decided not to schedule production of the vehicle. At the same time Tesla knows that a $2,500.00 order holder is more committed than a $100.00 reservation holder. Tesla will find a way to salvage a...

    RWD LR Order?

    Just spoke to a Tesla sales rep at Dublin, CA sales center. He informed me that Tesla will be making an announcement concerning LR RWD by early March. He also told me to look our for a sample Model Y available for test drives in his show room by then.

    Canceled my order

    I put the 19in sport wheels on my order and they were switched to the 20in Induction wheels. They grew on my as my exterior color is black. Add in the chrome delete and you get black on black on black. White interior for contrast. The car will primarily be for my wife and she does go on...

    LR Rear Wheel not showing up in the design

    Spoke to a rep at the localTesla Store (Corte Madera, CA) and was told that Tesla has not scheduled to make the MY LR RWD. His interpretation was that the car will never be made. Mine is that at some point they will schedule the car to be made. I'm not changing my reservation as I'm not...

    Anyone else share my concern over their LR RWD order?

    Ordered my LR RWD Model Y September 30, 2019. 3 year anniversary of ordering my 2016 Model X, and wanted to lock in my FSD price at $6K before it increased to $7K If I upgrade my order to a LR AWD in order to get my car sooner will Tesla honor my earlier upgrade prices: Black paint: My order...

    LR Rear Wheel not showing up in the design

    I have an order in for the LR RWD. My order has been updated to the black 20" Induction Wheels. With the black paint and chrome delete it looks sick. The AWD got 35 mile range boost from 280 to 315 miles. Wanted to see if the LR RWD hot a boost too and noticed it was gone from the website...

    Just pre-ordered a Model Y

    I'm with you. Ordered mine September 30th. 3 year anniversary of ordering my Model X. Black LR RWD 20' wheels white interior. Locking in the FSD price before the increase just made me way more money than I would have with the money in a savings account. The money was in a savings account...

    Tesla Model Y Long Range vs AWD

    We are replacing my wife's 2014 QX60 with a Model Y as soon as possible. She still has range anxiety and wants as much range as possible. She has to see that 300 miles on the screen. (At least for the first few months until the degradation kicks in) I want AWD for rain and snow travel (It...

    What would make you buy a non Tesla electric vehicle?

    Tesla's mission, its reason for existence, has not been matched by another company. Every other car company sells EVs in order to sell more gas cars, or because Tesla is eating their lunch. I won't buy a car from a company other than Tesla unless that company have a technology that is more...

    Is Tesla Model Y coming earlier than expected?

    I don't see Model 3 demand tapering. People like me who love Model 3, but need the versatility of Model Y were never going to buy a Model 3 and are just waiting patiently. Hopefully for less time than we thought. People argue that Model 3 is poaching Model sales, but I argue that all Tesla...

    Opinion: Tesla Truck needs a 250kWh pack if you want to tow.

    With those time limits to beer in hand then your camp ground can't be more than 110 miles from home. With your Tesla Truck fully charged at home a 220 mile round trip will take no longer than an ICE truck and cost less in fuel.

    Opinion: Tesla Truck needs a 250kWh pack if you want to tow.

    I watched the The Fast Lane cross county Model X towing video Then I also watched the Trasnsport Evolved response video Nikki and the transport evolved team did a great job of explaining why TFL experiment was not a good real world test case and was doomed to fail. That did prompted me to...

    Opinion: Tesla Truck needs a 250kWh pack if you want to tow.

    Your post makes me curious as to how you require 2 charging stops on a 200 mile round trip. Using 60% of the battery and travelling at 80 mph should get you at least 160 miles of travel. Of course using 80% of the battery and travelling at 70 mph should get you 250 miles of travel. Your...

    Supercharger - Kettleman City, CA (LIVE 15 Nov 2017, 24 V2 + 16 V3 stalls, lounge)

    I agree. On crowded, busy holidays in CA the in car Supercharger map can't keep up with real time. I did bypass Bakersfield, 'cuz it sucks. As I passed it, Buttonwillow was showing 2-3 empty spaces. Buttonwillow is 6 miles (9 minutes) further north than Bakersfield and when I arrived the...

    Supercharger - Kettleman City, CA (LIVE 15 Nov 2017, 24 V2 + 16 V3 stalls, lounge)

    It is slow, but first time seeing it this busy. Did consider that move of turing right going behind Starbucks then crossing Hwy 41 east -> west. Nice to know it might actually get me to the SC faster.

    Supercharger - Kettleman City, CA (LIVE 15 Nov 2017, 24 V2 + 16 V3 stalls, lounge)

    I planned to visit the lounge. I purposely skipped Tejon Ranch. It was 3/4 filled, but very difficult to leave there and get northbound during peak time. My car recommended Bakersfield (Only then1 gas station and very little shade) which showed 3 empty, but I pushed it to Buttonwillow which...

    Supercharger - Kettleman City, CA (LIVE 15 Nov 2017, 24 V2 + 16 V3 stalls, lounge)

    The attendant did tell me that 1 station was down. I was not aware that it was so many. After charging I moved my car to a non charging spot near her as my kids were playing Jenga and didn't want to leave. Who's ever heard of kids not wanting to leave a gas station.

    Supercharger - Kettleman City, CA (LIVE 15 Nov 2017, 24 V2 + 16 V3 stalls, lounge)

    Gustine was interesting. Chargers 3A/B were broken. I assumed the etiquette is that you go to the front of the line when you unplug from a broken charger, but it was difficult communicating that to other waiting owners. When I did get a working charger I had to inform each successive owner...

    Holiday travel back up. Every supercharger spot is full and there is a line that eventually extended around the building. The Tesla barista informed me that it has been this busy all week. Pack your patience when while Tesla road tripping during thr summer holidays.

    Excited to report that we have a new 10 stall supercharger under construction in Fairfield. Its across the freeway from the Westfield Supercharger. The new supercharger is in the Courtyard Marriott parking lot near In 'n Out. I'm sure it will be very popular with Raley's, Kumon, In 'n Out...

    Elon has learned his lesson from the Model X and applied it to the Y

    Were they expecting Tesla to put more buttons and knobs in the thing? They took what everyone loves about Tesla and put it in the most popular form factor. I'll be ordering mine when production starts. I love the 3, but it is just too small for me.
