    RWD MY Waiting Room

    I guess I’m glad I changed to an AWD back in July especially since this is my only car. I would have been fine with the SR if it came out earlier. I’ll miss this thread :)

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    I’ve had my AWD MY for six months. I waited as long as I could for a single motor MY. The SR would have been perfect. I drove a Bolt for 3 years and never had any issues with the 239 rated mileage. My driving pattern fit nicely.

    Leasing a Y

    I leased and re dived this email from Tesla. Tesla's New Leasing Experience In the next few months, Tesla is moving the lease experience to your Tesla Account. Here's what you need to know: New Place to Pay You can conveniently make payments and enroll in Autopay within your Tesla Account...

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    Looks like the configurator is open. Along with the seven seat option. 2-5 week wait. 244 miles of range. I thought it was going to have more than the AWD.

    Apple Music

    Not sure if it’s better or not but I pretty much depend on the Apple ecosystem which means I live on Apple Music. Would be handy if Apple Music (not CarPlay) was native like the other music apps.

    Santa Elon New Software Easter Egg Version 2020.48.26

    Got the software update on Christmas Day and Santa mode is now working 100% including making other cars reindeer! Nice gift!

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    I ordered the 3rd week of July and received my hub Thursday. All looks like it should.

    CA carpool sticker -- Best to order in November for 2021?

    I sent my application and check to the DMV on 10/28 and the check finally got cashed on 12/17. I thought maybe it go lost in the mail but the pandemic must have slowed things down.

    Santa Elon New Software Easter Egg Version 2020.48.26

    I did a reboot and no sleigh. All I get is snow, song and jingles for turn signals.

    Santa Elon New Software Easter Egg Version 2020.48.26

    I did try "Ho Ho Ho" and "Ho Ho Ho not funny as well as the Toy Box. What I did not try is the reboot. Will give it a try. First Christmas with a Tesla and can't wait to see the sleigh!

    Santa Elon New Software Easter Egg Version 2020.48.26

    Just upgraded and I was expecting the MY visual to be Santa's Sleigh with reindeers instead of passing cars but all I get is snow. Am I missing an additional step? I've done this in park and in drive.

    Adjusting without CarPlay?

    I miss CarPlay. My life is in the Apple ecosystem. That said I am getting used to the Tesla UI and Siri is pretty reliable in controlling my music and podcasts.

    Cup holders?

    My coffee rattles around inside the MY cup holder. I see dozens of solutions online. Can any one recommend one they ordered and happy with? Thanks.

    Model Y Sentry: Raspberry Pi Zero W (or) Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (2GB DDR4)

    Wouldn’t mind seeing Tesla adding this functionality to the firmware. Would be a bit more reliable. The car knows when in range of WiFi and could easily star awake until the upload complete. Specifying an upload location might be cumbersome but could offer a few cloud solutions like drive, box...

    Model Y Sentry: Raspberry Pi Zero W (or) Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (2GB DDR4)

    I believe after a successful upload to your destination it clears the files from the raspberry pi.

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    I think this would have been a non-issue if they didn’t charge the credit card until the product shipped. We have an online store and for us that’s gospel.

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    While I am super excited about getting the free spacer exactly what is it for? A free spacer is being added to your order for the delay you have endured, as well as a 25% discount towards our next product.

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    Just received this email... Frankly we don't know how to start this, as there's been so many cataclysmic delays in processing these hubs. To add insult to injury, we've been unable to accurately foresight the challenges and delays which can and may happen when it comes to supply chains, and...

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    Sent @getJeda a Twitter DM this morning and received this a few hours later. Guess we will see. I ordered July 24th. Hey there! Nov 18th-28th!

    Model Y Sentry: Raspberry Pi Zero W (or) Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (2GB DDR4)

    Just FYI. I was getting the “USB too slow” error. After researching I found others saying to specify size values for video and music rather than percentages. The article mentioned that as the SD card gets full it becomes slower. In my case I had a 32 GB SD card and set the video partition to 16...

    Model Y Sentry: Raspberry Pi Zero W (or) Raspberry Pi 4 Model B (2GB DDR4)

    That’s the right project. I tried for weeks to get the reliability solid but too often it would disconnect or Tesla would report USB too slow. You can configure the app with your Tesla credentials so that the car won’t sleep until the uploads to your server are complete. I agree with...

    RWD LR Order?

    Elon tweeted that the RWD will have a significant mileage increase over the AWD. Not sure what “significant “ means to Elon but still interesting.

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    Just received this email from JEDA... Firstly, we want to take a moment to say a huge thanks to all of you for your patience in waiting for this USB Hub. You won't be disappointed you did! While the time to receive it was lengthy, you can rest assured the product was worked on and perfected for...

    Would you get FSD for a leased car

    May if the rumored monthly subscription is reasonable.

    Automatic uploading Dashcam files

    This weekend I play around with sending my Dashcam and Sentry files from my MY to my Mac using the teslausb GitHub project. The concept is that the videos are stored on an SD card fronted by a Raspberry Pi Zero W and when you Tesla gets in range of your home's WiFi it starts the upload...

    RWD -> AWD -> Delivery -> Pure Joy

    I decided on Battery Day if nothing was said about the RWD I would pull the trigger changing my March 2019 reservation to the AWD model. I called Tuesday afternoon and the next day I received a text that my Model Y White/Black/19-inch would be ready at the Tesla pop-up event in Sherman Oakes...

    RWD LR Order?

    Typo :(

    RWD LR Order?

    I changed my RWD order to AWD on Tuesday and I received a text today that the car is ready for delivery Saturday . Way quicker than I thought. Probably good since my Bolt EV least is up Sunday. VIN 50xx.

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    A shipping container on “fast” boat takes 17 days from China to Los Angeles. A regular speed boat takes 21 days. This assumes they ship an entire 20 or 40 foot container and not ship via loose cargo. Usually customs is cleared well before the boat arrives. Just from my experiences.

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    I ran out of time and have to return my Bolt EV Sunday so I gave in and changed my order to the AWD. Tesla wins. Lol.

    RWD LR Order?

    I folded and just changed my order to the AWD.

    Deciding to Delay Delivery until Battery Day

    If there isn’t an update in either meeting tomorrow I think Tesla wins and I change my RWD order to AWD. :)

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    The Reason I chose the Jeda hub was that they use (so the reviewer states) an actual USB controller chip which from my experience is the right way to add ports. Other hubs may just split wires. Of course if the hub never ship then I guess it doesn’t matter how good the design is. I’m still...

    Car wash After Service

    I know in Burbank the dealer must have a water reclamation system to be able to wash cars. When I had my Bolt in for service the Chevrolet dealer would give a coupon for a free wash at a local car wash.

    RWD LR Order?

    Customer communication does not seem to be a priority for Tesla. I don’t see why the company can’t provide a timeframe other than an off the cuff tweet from the CEO. Is there a downside I’m missing?

    New Y RWD - 360 miles range - single piece casting - $45k [Speculation]

    I’m in on this 100%. Why? Because in 23 days my lease is over and I will be without a car. Plus I need some good vibes in this pandemic! Happy Labor Day!
  38. Kofther

    Anyone thinking about an VW ID.4 Instead?

    Competition in the EV space is good. It is what will force Tesla to be better at fit/finish and customer communication.

    Thinking about giving up

    They had me upload my current insurance info and told me to update it when a VIN is provided since the insurance info needs to have the Model Y VIN.

    Thinking about giving up

    My RWD order I placed in March 2019 was also marked ineligible. I reached out to Mark Gomez who has helped countless others. For my order it was the wheels I ordered way back in March 2019. He fixed it and The order was marked eligible. I’d say reach out to Mark however Tesla just let hi. Go...

    Battery day: anyone on the fence about buying before Battery Day?

    Kind of feels like buying a new computer. There is always a next thing. It you wait for it you'll never own it.

    Model Y RWD 3-6 weeks?

    I wonder if this is psychological warfare. Get my hopes up and then crush them in hopes I'll just pull the trigger on the AWD. :)

    Model Y RWD 3-6 weeks?

    RWD LR Order?

    I received a text today as well for the RWD / White / 19-inch / FSD order I placed back in March 2019. Hoping it's true and not just some automatic text generated by a server. "Tesla Update - We currently expect your Model Y to be ready for delivery 3 - 6 weeks from today. We'll continue to...

    Model Y RWD 3-6 weeks?

    Just received a text from Tesla. I ordered a RWD / White / 19-inch wheels. Could this be true? Hope so. :)

    RWD LR Order?

    @Studerisms when you updated your RWD order did it try to put you in an AWD vehicle? When I try to edit my RWD design it only shows AWD choices or Long Range and Performance.

    RWD MY Waiting Room

    Based on a tweet a few weeks ago Elon gave side eyes emoji to $45K. A few days ago someone saw that the finance calculator had the MY RWD for $48K so who really knows.
