    Phone Mount Recommendations

    Honestly I was really adamant about getting a mount when I first picked up my Y, but since then I have kind of forgotten about it. The system GPS works great and I'm missing the phone access a lot less than I thought I would. I think it might be due to just having a more enjoyable car to drive...

    Horrible experience with my flat tire

    yeah i definitely need to learn how to do that... but also, yikes.

    Horrible experience with my flat tire

    Yep, absolutely no way to talk to an actual human at any of the service centers i've tried in california. I need to invest in these. I've never patched a tire myself before, I need to learn for emergencies. Tesla told me that they do repair tires if they are repairable, but the problem in my...

    Horrible experience with my flat tire

    Just got done dealing with a flat I got while on a road trip in Norcal. Tesla informed me that mobile service was on the way, great! Tesla informed me that they did not have the tire in stock, asked me to call local service center (for some stupid reason Roadside Assistance has no way of...

    PSA: If you still haven't received your permanent plates, keep bugging them about it

    Honestly I got through to a human and they legit told me to wait until the temp plates expired before calling them again. Such a shitty experience. It was only after texting my sales advisor did I make any progress. I think that actually might be your best bet depending on how cool you are with...

    PSA: If you still haven't received your permanent plates, keep bugging them about it

    My temporary plates expired today and Tesla was scrambling to get me another set of temporary ones. I originally called around 3 weeks before my temp plates (CA) were about to expire and they told me to wait until the expiration date to call again. I called again a few days before the...

    Phone Mount Recommendations

    ahhh I see. I found this video on it, this one is my top pick now i think. so nice that you can still close the compartment fully too

    Phone Mount Recommendations

    I've seen this one and actually like the design best. Does the wire just dangle? Jowua just came out with one that comes with a cable long enough to be ran through the upholstery seams to connect all the way to the back USB-C port without being seen. Really nice if you're trying to keep the...

    Ugh same. I can't imagine the rationale behind this lol. what a weird decision

    Repeat Functionality in Spotify

    Am I going crazy or is there really no way to toggle on repeat in the Spotify app? Seems like such a ridiculously basic functionality to include in a music player app...

    Any tricks for keeping rear camera viewable?

    I mean he's 100% right lol. the response had nothing to do with the problem the thread author was having

    Is this worth contacting my PPF installer about?

    Wanted to leave another update: the shop was able to see me first thing in the morning. They did not want to commit to a same day turnaround until they saw it in person, but once they did, they just applied some heat to the area and fixed the application and it looks much better. I was in and...

    Is this worth contacting my PPF installer about?

    Thanks for the input everybody, definitely convinced me to bring it up. Wanted to provide an update: emailed them and they responded surprisingly really quickly (it's 8:15pm here) saying to come by whenever and they'll do "whatever is needed to fix the issue" and apologized for the...

    Is this worth contacting my PPF installer about?

    Recently got PPF, and honestly I'm overall happy with the job they did, except for the tiniest corner on my passenger rear door. The film seems to be ever so slightly coming off, but it's in a spot that's very hard to see. However I'm not sure if that little corner can affect the overall...

    Phone Mount Recommendations

    Was wondering if anyone had any recommendations for phone mounts. Haven't seen any that stand out as a universal favorite just yet, so would be nice to hear about other peoples' experiences

    Getting PPF - valet mode?

    i don't know how many other ways we can word it, but yes. whatever access you have to your car with your key card, they will also have in order to do the work. if you're this paranoid about it I suppose you could unsync your contacts, clear your browser history, and remove your home location...

    Getting PPF - valet mode?

    I currently have my PPF and ceramic getting applied. I turned off sentry cause I was worried it would be constantly be going off and flashing during the process and would likely annoy the hell out of the shop. Would also drain your battery unnecessarily. One tip that I would suggest is taking a...

    Backing into charging spots

    just practice in less crowded parking lots. the backup camera will be immensely helpful. use the guidelines to center yourself comfortably. you’ll also get a better sense of how close you are to things relative to your camera view over time.

    Tesla's amateurish service lives up to its bad reputation

    Oh wow mine is actually getting serviced for 12v issues. But my MYLR is brand new, maybe that's why they wanted me to take it in? But i would have rather had this taken care of with their mobile service. I originally surfaced the 12v issues in a chat related to a service appointment made to look...

    Tesla's amateurish service lives up to its bad reputation

    I love my Tesla, but I will say I never had an issue getting a loaner from Toyota service centers. I was actually just at the service center OP mentioned. I will say it did seem really chaotic. It also seemed TINY. I got uber credits to get back home which I didn't particularly mind because I...

    Is it bad to get PPF now and ceramic coating later?

    All in One Auto, USA (on Sepulveda). I haven't gotten everything done just yet, my scheduled dropoff is next Tuesday. They have been very helpful though, and have answered all my questions. I honestly think I've been a bit annoying with all the questions I've been asking but they've been great...

    Will reapplying for financing through Tesla change EDD?

    Talk to a sales advisor to confirm, but you should put your payment method down as cash until you get closer to your EDD. Once it gets close and you get a VIN or a text from Tesla asking if you're ready to take delivery soon, you contact them to change over your payment method. I think if you...

    Should I black out my badges/emblems on my black MY?

    I kinda love how subtle it looks. Especially the dual motors badge... Are both the tesla emblem and the dual motor badge matte black? The dual motor looks glossy. Particularly love that one.
  25. Hank Hill

    Should I black out my badges/emblems on my black MY?

    My MY is black, just getting clear ppf on it. so still glossy black all around
  26. Hank Hill

    Should I black out my badges/emblems on my black MY?

    Oh interesting... Yeah this appeals to me too since its not too much contrast with the black. I might look into this
  27. Hank Hill

    Should I black out my badges/emblems on my black MY?

    Was wondering if anyone has photos of their black model y with blacked out emblems. I'm getting my car wrapped soon and was thinking about also getting the badges/emblems blacked out in gloss as well.. I can't immediately tell if I want to pull the trigger on it. Any insight would be appreciated!

    Is it bad to get PPF now and ceramic coating later?

    no worries all the information you provided was still immensely helpful. given me a lot to think about.
  29. Hank Hill

    Is it bad to get PPF now and ceramic coating later?

    Wow this is super helpful, thank you. Yeah they were saying that they would be using CeramicPro. They're quoting me an extra $900 to add the ceramic coating during the PPF process. I am not sure if that's excessive or not. Obviously more expensive that D.I.Y... I told them I needed some time to...

    Is it bad to get PPF now and ceramic coating later?

    This is helpful to know, thanks. Do you happen to have any brand recommendations? Will look into this, thanks!

    Is it bad to get PPF now and ceramic coating later?

    I'm getting my car wrapped in Expel PPF. I was planning on getting ceramic coating a bit down the line but the shop is recommending I get it done along with the PPF right from the get go (just because of the full protection and how easy it is to clean). They're definitely not being pushy about...

    Just heard back from my SA. He informed me that once you click "I'm Ready," you don't go to the back of the line, you basically pick up where you left off and will get an updated EDD.

    Just got the text asking if I was ready to take delivery. I ended up putting a hold until February, and it gave me a date of February 2nd.

    just had mine pushed from last half of December to June as well
  37. Hank Hill

    October 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I plan on trading in, I don't think that should affect it... but I think your EDD will jump around, according to everyone's experience. I also don't think FSD would affect it since it's not a hardware change and that could easily be added post-delivery
  38. Hank Hill

    October 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    I had a similar response from my SA. Waiting til I get a VIN to delay, but I don't know if this will be put me to the back of the line 🤷‍♂️
  39. Hank Hill

    VIN received. Trying to delay.

    curious to see how this turns out. my EDD just got updated to the last half of december (all the way up from march) and I'm likely gonna delay it as well.

    October 2021 Order Delivery Dates

    My order got moved WAY up from March all the way to December 14-31. Hoping I can delay to maybe February without being put all the way in the back of the queue. I informed my SA about it and he said MYLR • Black/White • Induction Wheels • No FSD • No Tow Completed profile 10/05/21 • EDD Feb...

    My first EDD change moved it sooner by a month, and ever since then I check like four times a day. Good luck, haha. My EDD has since moved back later by over a month :(
