    FSD Request button goes live tonight!

    I’m at 97%. I turned off my beta request. I back to having fun driving again. I figure when Tesla finally get around to rolling it out to 97%, I’ll turn it on again. Two things can happen, it’ll either keep my score, and I’ll get it or it’ll reset my score and I’ll get it. Either way, I don’t...

    FSD Request button goes live tonight!

    Congrats on the 99%! if you keep it up, hopefully you’ll get it in a month or so. roll out is delayed again: https://www.theverge.com/2021/10/9/22717753/elon-musk-last-minute-concerns-delay-tesla-software-update I’m starting to feel like Charlie Brown and Elon is Lucy holding the football...

    FSD Request button goes live tonight!

    I'm at 98% in LA. Here's what I've learned...you can accelerate as quickly as you want, but moving fast means you may have to brake hard. If you have to brake hard (for non-emergencies like yellow lights, stop signs, slow cars), engage AP immediately and let it do the dirty work so you don't...

    Dav, you can just pull down on the score screen screen, it’ll update. No need to reboot the app.

    FSD Request button goes live tonight!

    I get dinged for everything. I took a drive with my wife, who criticizes me for everything, but wasn’t able to find a problem with my driving. Safety Score said 97, with 19.6 unsafe follow distance. It’s already been a week. Per Elon, if Tesla only rolled out to 1000 cars a week, starting...

    FSD Request button goes live tonight!

    It's next to impossible to get 100% driving in Los Angeles rush hour traffic. There's no way to leave 6+ car lengths of space without it being filled. I had my AP follow distance set to 5, but increased it to 7, and it still seems to follow closer than I do when I got dinged for following too...

    FSD Request button goes live tonight!

    The update took around 30 min. Car made whirling, humming, and clunking noises, as usual, during update. I updated cars and drove them about 3-4 miles and new updated app still doesn’t show Safety Score section.

    FSD Request button goes live tonight!

    Anyone get the beta request button? It’s after midnight. I rebooted and still nothing on any of my Teslas.

    Model Y Performance 21"- Pirelli or Michelin?

    I'm going to keep all 4 tires in the Pirelli family for now, instead of breaking them up between Pirelli/Michelin. I'll go a full set of Michelin Pilot Sport EV, announced Feb 21 in about 18 months. Michelin - The first MICHELIN Pilot Sport-family tire for electric sports cars It's designed...

    Model Y Performance 21"- Pirelli or Michelin?

    Yes, tires are staggered, so no front/rear rotation, only left/right since they’re non directional. I’m in Southern California, so I hardly have to deal with snow. Michelin are not made for Tesla’s so I don’t think it has foam lining for sound dampening. I didn’t notice a big different going...

    Model Y Performance 21"- Pirelli or Michelin?

    My March 2020 Performance Y has hit 12,500 miles and the rear tires have little wear bar left. I drive pretty aggressivly and I did have fun launching from light to light when it was newer. I hoping the next set will last me 15-20k. Front set looks like it can last another 15k miles...

    Hansshow kick sensor issues

    I installed the kick sensor and have same problem with it not working when car goes into sleep mode. This is when it's in my garage. I DO have sentry mode disabled. I have to open a door (any door) before the kick sensor or manual trunk switch will work again. I don't remember the manual trunk...

    Are there any radar detector mounts for the Model Y?

    The mount for the 3 is different. There's more gap on my Jan 2018 Model 3 RWD LR than my Mar 2020 Performance Y. I emailed Blended Mount about a year ago and was told they are working on a mount. I don't see one out yet.

    2020.48.26 Did you get Boombox?

    I didn't get it either. My Y is 0033xx and my 3 is 0046xx. I guess I'm too early for both cars. I thought for sure the 9 month old Y would have it.

    Windshield Rock Hit

    I heard even if you got the windshield replaced by a 3rd party, you still have to bring it back to Tesla to get the cameras re-calibrated. is that true? If so, you may not be saving much after paying Tesla labor for camera calibration.

    Anyone thinking about an VW ID.4 Instead?

    Battery degradation can also be an issue. Tesla has proven it degrades less than 15% in after 150k-200k miles. This is not true with most, if not all, other electric cars. Time will tell how VW's battery pack/BMS measure up to Tesla, especially factoring in repeated use of fast charging. I...

    Car wash After Service

    Tesla may have cracked the code on many things from Autopilot to range to energy density, but washing the car without scratching it isn't one of them. :p Tesla, they make the impossible seem easy and the easy seem impossible.

    21” Uberturbine rim color

    Fixing the rash on a rim isn't a one time deal, it's an ongoing task. $150-$225 per repair, per rim can quickly add up. Regardless of how much was spent on the Tesla, it would be preferable by most people to have a $30 solution if it yielded acceptable results, regardless of the type of...

    Found this little gem on my $55K Model Y

    My is just white plastic with green tape. VIN 0033xx Is this part of the new 2020.36.3 update? :);):D

    My Model Y smells, does it happen to yours?

    Just a thought. Did you get windows tinted recently? I had my 3 tinted 2 years ago and when I took my Y back, he asked if I noticed a sour (vinegar) smell. I told him I did but didn't know it was from the tint all that time.

    White Color Mismatch Unacceptable

    My white MYP+ has mismatched bumpers too. It's easy to tell in bright sunlight. VIN: 0033xx delivered 3/30/20.

    21” Uberturbine rim color

    I used this touch up for my Model S Sonic Carbon rims. It’s not an exact match (much shinier) but it’s close enough to me, for now.

    2020.28.5 update

    Correct, it automatically leaves radio & AC off now when you just open the rear hatch. I hope it stays this way.

    2020.28.5 update

    It just worked, no new setting. I hope it's not a "bug". I like this feature.

    Side mirror reverse tilt

    You should be able to adjust it, while in Reverse, then save it. When you put it back in Drive, it should go back. I just tried it and for some reason after saving it and putting it back in Drive, the mirrors were still pointing down. I switched to a different profile then switched back and...

    2020.28.5 update

    With this update, now I can open rear hatch and leave it open without radio/AC turn on! Nice! No more manually turning off AC and muting radio.

    VIN posted this afternoon. Potential rejected vehicle?

    Did you perhaps order the 7 seat option?

    First Salvage Model Y only 20 miles on odometer!

    Wow, that's horrible! That car clearly has a serious fit/finish and paint problem that puts my hatch and door alignment problem to shame! :p

    What spare tools should you carry in the MY

    I got the Tesla repair kit (air compressor and foam). About 2 years ago, when I took my 3 in for nail puncture repair, the Tesla tire specialist said Tesla tires have foam insulation for noise, so using the tire repair foam in a foam insulated tire would mess them up and should be used as last...

    Radar Detector Install Question

    I think you can tap it off the same place overhead location as in the 3, but my Tesla Mobile Service tech said not to tap it from there because the car will think there's a phantom drain. He said don't go directly to the smart battery either because of the same reason. He said it was ok to use...

    Radar Detector Install Question

    The gap is much less. I contacted Blendmount and they said they’re working on a Model Y mount.

    Tesla Dashcam

    Installed Blackvue 900S 2ch. It was easier than Model 3. Now I can use Sentry for parking, since it has side cameras, and backup for Blackvue.

    My measures about 89" from top of spoiler to the ground when opened.

    Don't do what I did

    I put up pipe insulation after it took out a very small chip out of my spoiler. I usually back in but head in only when I'm charging. This has saved me many times already!

    New Model Y curb rash on Day 2

    Wow, that's bad. That'll require a tad more than sand paper and touch up paint! I feel for you!

    Rear defroster ribbon cable broke

    Wow, for a green, echo friendly company, that’s a lot of waste just to replace a small ribbon cable!

    Rear defroster ribbon cable broke

    I finally got a chance to scrape off the ribbon cable sticker from the rear glass. There are 2 contacts under neath, so no glass replacement needed! Now, if someone can help me find the passenger side ribbon cable part number then I can se see if they’ll sell me that part

    Rear defroster ribbon cable broke

    nooooooo.....not replacing the entire glass! I just got it tinted too! I'll probably have to live with it and hope this is only affecting FM reception. It looks like the base of the ribbon cable may be able to be peeled off of the glass and replacement be stuck back on. The ribbon cable is...

    Rear defroster ribbon cable broke

    Thank you for responding. Do you have the part number for the ribbon cable that goes from this Amplifier to the glass? I did confirm it’s not defroster. My defroster lines still work per FLIR. My FM radio also works . I’m guessing the sensitivity is probably where it suffers when I tore...

    Rear defroster ribbon cable broke

    While installing the rear camera, I snapped the very thin ribbon cable to the rear defroster, or maybe radio, though I can still receive radio station. Has anyone had this happen? It looks like it’s attached directly to the rear one piece window. is there a way to repair this without...

    Did you get any storage box for Model Y?

    Please ask more questions. I Like researching and I learn when I look things up. Here’s the page from the manual. It is used for child seat anchor.

    All weather floor mats

    I just got my Tesmanian mats. They're very well made and molded perfectly. The lip is really high so it will trap A LOT of liquid should I ever need to trap that much fluid. There's no smell coming out of the box either. I think I'm going to get a set of these for my Model 3.

    Did you get any storage box for Model Y?

    Here’s how it looks when I moved it into the 3 and pushed it all the way forward.

    Did you get any storage box for Model Y?

    I’m hooking it to the anchor at the base of the back of 2nd row seat. This anchor point will pull forward a little when you put the seat down flat.

    Did you get any storage box for Model Y?

    Here are pix of how my fits. I use bungee to keep it from flying back. Let me know if you need measurements.
