    2021 / 2022 Range

    I wonder if the new motors being more powerful is the cause of slightly less range?

    Blog Tesla to Bundle Solar, Battery Products

    Thanks for the reply, I guess what I’m really asking is: are 3rd party solar companies also restricted from buying PWs from Tesla given the new bundling change?

    Blog Tesla to Bundle Solar, Battery Products

    My wife and I are buying a house that already has solar but no battery storage. If we want to get a couple Powerwalls is our best bet now to get them 3rd party?

    Tesla Offer Model 3/Y Frunk Group Buy

    So Raymond sent me out a newly designed control unit. Just received it today, plugged it in, and my trunk finally closes all the way! Been working with Raymond since Feb. 4 and finally got it fixed. Guess I did have a faulty control unit. The new one is much slicker looking but not that you’ll...

    Anyone want my MPP Comfort Coilover

    I might be interested. I’m also in the OC. Did you find a shop in the area to install them? Did you get a quote for install?

    Why a Y Needs Mud Guards/Flaps

    Those look exactly like the AliExpress ones I got. It’s cheaper on AE and the shipping time will be roughly the same.

    Why a Y Needs Mud Guards/Flaps

    My mud guards from AliExpress arrived on Friday (~2.5 weeks after I ordered them, and ahead of delivery estimates). Super easy to install, took maybe 15 minutes total. One of the clips it came with was broken but I ordered some replacements off Amazon. Added some auto tape to various areas of...

    Tesla Offer Model 3/Y Frunk Group Buy

    Just to add some insight into my experience so far with this powered frunk: I’ve been communicating with Raymond (via WhatsApp) since Feb 4 to figure out why my frunk isn't closing all the way. He’s been very helpful and responsive over the whole time (even with their Chinese New Year holiday)...

    Why a Y Needs Mud Guards/Flaps

    I actually meant to say mine were from Aliexpress - mental lapse, but the link I posted is still correct for where I bought mine from them.

    Why a Y Needs Mud Guards/Flaps

    It's in English... And yes, they do because I ordered from them. It's currently on a plane over to the US according to the tracking info in their app.

    Why a Y Needs Mud Guards/Flaps

    It’s way cheaper to buy these from Alibaba. That’s what I did and they should be here next month.

    I actually did this and it helped. The driver side is still just an awkward, tight position.

    Tesla Offer Model 3/Y Frunk Group Buy

    I’ll have to check the plugs again tomorrow when I can get at it again. I’ve done the unit reset and some other things Raymond had me. I also tightened my cable. I’ll try your slight pressure suggestion tomorrow. Thanks all! I’m not super worried about it and know I’ll get it sorted...

    Yeah it’s centered fine. But the latch motor isn’t even engaging when trying to close.

    Tesla Offer Model 3/Y Frunk Group Buy

    To follow up, I was finally able to work on this a bit this morning but none of the suggestions solved the problem. I eventually contacted TO via WhatsApp and Raymond tried to help me troubleshoot the problem, but nothing was working, even updating the unit’s firmware. He said he’s not run into...

    Tesla Offer Model 3/Y Frunk Group Buy

    Just finished my install. Probably in record time while trying to take care of a 6 month old. Hands down, the struts are the most annoying/painful (literally) part of the process. Once you understand how the retainer clip on the strut heads work, it becomes easier by using the pick tool to...

    Does the method using a flat head screw driver shown in the Electrified Garage video not work? Is the pick tool really necessary?

    Anyone know if V4 install is the same as the V3 install video listed on their page? Doesn’t look too bad honestly.

    I honestly haven’t tested that. I don’t really have the equipment for that.

    Vendor Official Signature Wheel Gallery and Fitment Q&A Thread

    Depends on how sticky your tires are too. I get slightly better mileage driving around town and slightly worse on highway because of additional air flow. I was told they are considering developing aero covers but I don’t know how long that would be or if it would actually happen.

    Question for California owners: license plates

    Fill out the form and you can choose for the DMV to pick your plate number or choose your own. The latter option will take longer to get.

    21” Uberturbine Wheels/Tires (SoCal)

    Selling a full set of 21” Uberturbine wheels in Orange County. I swapped to a smaller wheel and don’t have the space for these. They had 2,627 miles on them when I swapped them out. TPMS is NOT included since I kept those for my new wheels. The front wheels have some curb rash (see photos). A...

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    I’m trying to remain civil again in this discourse, and not weighing in much as I got my refund last week. It bears repeating for some of these newcomers to the thread that there were many of us who have/had been waiting on this hub since March when pre-orders first went live and these hubs...

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    Last week, Jeda’s Twitter DM’ed me saying my hub was in queue to ship on Nov. 17 -today. Well today came and went and I tweeted at them demanding a refund and that I would be filing a FTC complaint. They DM’ed me back saying that a manager should’ve reach out to me yesterday (they did not) and...

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    @djejnyc can you confirm which version you got? Post a pic. When did you order it? As others have stated, I think you have the old hub design since literally no on here or on the various FB groups has one yet.

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    I’ve tweeted at them and finally sent them a DM. I also received the email that my hub would be shipping THIS week, but they DM’ed me back saying I’m in the queue to ship NEXT week on 11/17. FML. This guys don’t know how to run a business. I recant all the neutrality I tried to bring to this...

    What if our order number is 151k? We just aren’t getting it then? Lol this saga continues to be frustrating

    Can you get a picture of it? Are you sure he ordered the same hub as all of us? Does he have the refreshed USB ports in his Model 3?

    Loving my wheels! Thanks for making it such a painless and fun order process!

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    Got the same, exact email. It's obviously just a mass communication to try to keep us all cool and from cancelling; I can tell because I already told them I preferred to use UPS months ago but this totally ignores that fact by asking me AGAIN to tell them my preference.

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    I actually called in last week and left a voicemail for the RTL podcast talking about our issues with Jeda. Curious to see if Ryan responds in an upcoming episode.

    Model Y tint pictures

    I get that but the sunshade I got off Amazon also has a reflective insert. Living in SoCal we get plenty of hot days but I just found it cheaper to have the sunshade versus the cost of tinting. Plus, I have a 2 month old and tint wouldn’t be enough to get the sun out of her eyes. I also didn’t...

    I don’t understand how all these orders placed MONTHS after me are apparently getting tracking numbers BEFORE me?

    Wow. Happy for you, but that’s a slap in the face for me ordering Day 1.

    Nice. When did you order?

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    Haven’t received any shipping notification still despite their latest update email. I have to say, I’m going to be really pissed if they announce this “new product” they’ve been teasing in their emails before anyone at least gets a tracking number on this hub.

    That’s fair. Take care now. Bye bye.

    I ordered the day pre-orders opened in March so I’m hoping mine goes out in the first round.

    Anybody actually gotten an update from this company about when they’re going to start shipping?

    Rear hatch privacy cover.

    The owner recommended these clips to me and I think they are a much more elegant solution and really makes it easy to take off compared to putting the headrests through the loops which required removing and re-installing the headrests each time: HOUSE DAY Houseday Car Seat Headrest Hooks for...

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    I’m fine waiting since it’s not a pressing need for me to have a hub. I preordered back in March, IIRC, and despite the long wait I’m still looking forward to the hub. I also preordered my MY in March 2019 Day 1 so I’m used to waiting. Everyone I know that has a Jed’s hub in their Model 3 swears...

    Best Suspension replacement for the MY?

    Model Y tint pictures

    I’m sorry it was months ago and I can’t quickly find it. I’ll try to look for it and post it. They guy went around the car with some kind of heat meter to test all the windows with/without tint IIRC.
  48. xtnvieira

    Model Y tint pictures

    There’s a video on YouTube of someone with an early build doing a measured heat test of all the windows and the roof has excellent heat rejection. Everyone can do what they want of course, I just opted to save the money and throw up a cheap sunshade from time to time.
  49. xtnvieira

    Model Y tint pictures

    Why are people tinting their roofs? Model Y already has heat rejection in that glass. It’s the only glass in the car that does.
