    I picked up my MY 7 seater white on white w inductions in Brooklyn last week. Build quality is almost perfect. Ever so slight misalignment where quarter panel meets bumper, wasn't even worth mentioning. Some scuff marks on headliner that the SA cleaned off on the spot., noticed some more on the...

    Model Y lease payment questions

    For a White on White LR 7 seater w 20" wheels, 12k miles a year in NY with new plates my #s are about $2300 drive off and $715 a month. 7 seater option was like $40 a month give or take. This was before the latest $500 price increase. If you go to a tesla store their #s are more accurate bc...

    7-seater cargo space with 3rd row folded: equivalent to 5 seater?

    I was on the fence also but went for the 7 seater (delivery next week hopefully) for the extra seats, no real loss of cargo space and the nice extras that the 2nd row seats now move forward and back and with the 2nd row all the way back you get about 1” more 2nd row leg room.

    Posted this in the other thread about production halt but i think it's important to post here too: Ordered a 7 seater, east coast, about 4 weeks ago and yesterday for the first time I had an estimated delivery of April 23-May 10. Today when I logged in to my account it's gone.

    Gen 3 Wall Connector Wire and Conduit Question

    I do plan on hiring an electrician but as I have seen, there seems to be differences of opinion even among those who are quite experienced. My WC will be outdoors at the end of my driveway. My panel is in the basement on the other side of the house, about 20 feet away. The 1st electrician I had...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector Wire and Conduit Question

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I need the 18’ cord as I need flexibility depending on where I park the Tesla. Sounds like I may consume less power and spend a little less money on my electric bill if I go with #4?

    Gen 3 Wall Connector Wire and Conduit Question

    Thanks for the reply. So if I went with #4 wires are you saying I should revise the ground to perhaps #8?

    Gen 3 Wall Connector Wire and Conduit Question

    I have a MY LR 7 seater on order, Gen 3 WC being delivered this week. There are a few videos and several threads discussing the wiring used. The more i watch and read, the more confused I get. What I can gather so far is that Tesla recommends 6 gauge wire and some people are running 4 gauge...

    Hey All: I'm about to pull the trigger on a new MY LR. I never considered getting the 7 seat option but it seems like there isnt really a downside except price. Aside from losing the 2nd under floor storage and a few inches of storage space where the3rd row seats sit when folded, is there any...

    Brand new Y with flat tire - my journey

    I'm looking to pull the trigger on a new LR w inductions. I have a battery powered inflation kit that I plan on keeping in the car that may be good to temporarily fix a slow leak so I can get back home, etc. I feel like a good idea is to keep an inflated full size spare, perhaps on a cheap...

    Sales Tax on Lease payment

    Is there any way to roll the sales tax into the payment or must it be paid upfront in its entirety? The online configurator makes no mention of sales tax, even in the “due at signing” language. I’m assuming the lease quote does not include sales tax bc it does not ask what state you are in. TIA!

    MountainPass Performance Comfort Coilovers

    I'm wondering after a 3 year lease how much one could recoup selling them used. Maybe $1000? That would help me lean towards spending $3,000 on a leased car.

    Tesla Releases $2,000 Model Y Acceleration Boost, Shaves Half Second

    Thanks. It doesn’t have AB which I kind of figured because from ready this forum the standard LR is a little soft off the line and the AB helps that. I did notice that acceleration from a standstill was not violent. another Q. Does AB “stay with the car” to 2nd owner?

    Tesla Releases $2,000 Model Y Acceleration Boost, Shaves Half Second

    Is there any way of knowing if a car has the AB through the menus? Im in the middle of an overnight test drive with a MY LR and it isn’t stuck in chill mode which is great but I can’t seem to see anything in the menus that indicates it has the AB. Car seems plenty fast.

    Makes sense since it was only announced a few days before the end of the year. Nobody would have been able to order and pick up when they announced the incentive.

    If the free SC and FSD were only if you took delivery by NYE then that would support the argument that the MY updates are coming sooner rather than later.

    Model Y Stiff Ride Softening Recommendations

    Most vehicles in this class call for 32-35 psi. My Rdx calls for 33. I can’t image the wheels and tires on the MY are so much different. Seems that 42 psi helps with range. Elon has said lowering 3-4 won’t affect range much and will result in a more compliant ride.

    Model Y leasing now available

    There are alot of Tesla people against leasing saying the net cost after 3 years is much more than owning bc you build equity as you make your monthly loan payments. There is evidence to this point as there are used 2018 model 3s with mileage less than 20k for sale for basically $6000 less than...

    Tesla Will Lease You A Model Y For $499 Per Month

    I've done some research but can't get a good answer on how a state ev tax credit (NY is $2,000) affects the lease. Some say it doesn't apply to leases, but Tesla's lease calculator does. Does anybody have input/experience on this? TIA.

    Thanks for the replies. I wonder then why is Tesla lowering the monthly lease payment on their website taking into account the $2000 credit.

    Model Y leasing now available

    In NY there is a $2,000 tax credit. How does this work when calculating the lease payment? Does the entire $2000 come off the PP and then you calculate the lease payment?
