    Disenrolling or un-enrolling from the Beta button and Safety Score tracking

    I unenrolled last Thursday evening. Wife was unable to get more than 93 - in her defense, she works downtown and rush hours is impossible. After 5 perfect 100 days, I was up to 96, but slow going, right? So Last Thursday, 10/21, I unenrolled. Took a couple hours for the Safety Score to...

    Geographic Location and FSD Beta Access

    MN here. I've been at 100 since Friday.. no FSD Beta yet. Not sure if the 10.3.0 snafu is causing delay.

    Nitrogen Question?

    I constantly shake my head when this comes up. One of the biggest scams. @Pianewman is correct - our atmosphere is 78% nitrogen. I cannot see much advantage in using 99% nitrogen mix.. or likely less.. do they vacuum out all air before installing nitrogen? Really? How.. and if they did...

    How are your AWD Ys handling the winter snow?

    Total Crap OEM Goodyear F1 Asymmetric Tires - Beware in snow! TL/DR; For winter snow & ice the OEM tires need to be replaced.

    Impossible to Remove Stain/Mark on White Seats

    I have become a huge fan of Chemical Guys Cleaner w/ Horse Hair Brush. My brother has a tendency to abuse the stuffing out of his vehicles.. including his beloved Model X with white interior. He was shocked at how well it cleaned his Tesla white interior. Made it like new. Based on clean-up...

    Fix for rear apron scratches

    Respectfully.. I don't agree. You may be correct. I would definitely try the Meguire's Ultimate Polish first. Cheap and easy to find out for sure. I feel really good with this suggestion. I suspect 90% of what we see in photo is detrius on bumper and not damage to bumper. I suspect buffing...

    Fix for rear apron scratches

    Typically, for that kind of thing, I use Rubbing compound, then Polish, then Cleaner Wax.. on 3-4" foam disk on drill. Learned from a Pro. Works great. Last summer I had a very good experience with Meguire's Ultimate Polish (G19220) on dark Toyota bumper. Some rubbing compound had gotten on...

    Total Crap OEM Goodyear F1 Asymmetric Tires - Beware in snow!

    It's the "All-Season" tag that's crap. Yes. I thought I was clear in my post I understand why Tesla would want these on the car with the Low Rolling Resistance. Again, it's the "All-Season" label. Might as well equip with summer performance tires for all the good the traction the Goodyear...

    Total Crap OEM Goodyear F1 Asymmetric Tires - Beware in snow!

    Agree to disagree. OEM all-season tires in the past have all been decent (though, admittedly this is first EV). To have to spend >$1k to replace OEM with decent all-season tires or order 2nd set of wheels & tires for $3.5k is very annoying. I favored just replacing for $1k, but is wife's car...

    Total Crap OEM Goodyear F1 Asymmetric Tires - Beware in snow!

    We purchased the 20" Induction wheels. The OEM Tires are Goodyear F1 Asymmetric tires. They have a treadwear rating of 500. The treadwear indicator is a measure of how long (miles) the tire is expected to last. It also is an indicator of how hard/soft tire is. Sport tires usually have...

    Drivers Seat creaking while driving.

    We have squeaking from rear seat.. putting down and up seems to stop it. Hasn't done it in a week or so.. which is sad because I finally got back there and had wife drive around - just to have nothing to find.

    Sharpie on black fender?

    I recently had good luck with polish. I purchased a 2015 RAV4 for my mother and detailed it - rubbed out a lot of scratches, followed by Meguire's Car Polish. I accidentally got some polish on the black plastic fenders and was afraid it would stain white like the rubbing compound or some waxes...

    Wind and Road noise. How to mitigate?

    We had some wind noise that seemed a bit much from windshield (I have posted in this forum). It helped to test drive another Model Y. The back-to-back drive made it evident ours had an issue.

    Air noise from driver front windshield?

    @WasherDryer Do you have access to compressor with air gun? Pretty easy to test. Initially, I had my wife on inside with airgun with my face close to area she was blowing. It was very apparent when we found the weak spot. I could feel the air coming through. Keep in mind, this was after SC...

    Wind noise was bad windshield seal!

    We had very noticeable noise from front driver-side corner of windshield. Tesla added some sealant which helped noise, but still there. Tissue test showed was seal issue. Tesla replaced windshield! Mystery solved. Previous thread regarding our noise: Air noise from driver front windshield?

    Doors frozen OPEN!

    UPDATE: Spoke with Tesla. They are going to spray a Dupont product (prolly what P3dStealth suggested above, which I've ordered), check window calibration and.. fix my trim. See photo below, I noticed door trim piece dented and scraped from window glass hitting it.. which sucks.

    Doors frozen OPEN!

    This is more than simply frozen windows.. with Tesla Model Y, I could not even come close to closing the door .. at 30 degrees F. Anyway.. service call is scheduled.

    Doors frozen OPEN!

    I suspect you're right. Still new to Tesla crowd. I've had many frameless window cars and never once had this issue. If this happened in a BMW forum, people would cry out against the injustice and stupidity of the design. Seriously, my wife works down town and parks in open-air ramp. In...

    Doors frozen OPEN!

    That's ridiculous. This even the cheapest car you can find does not have this issue. $63k car that cannot close it's doors in cold weather is a real problem. Yes, your suggestion to pre-heat for 30 minutes may work.. but may not if you have already opened the door (as I had) only later to...

    Doors frozen OPEN!

    Oct 25, 2020. Left Model Y outside in light snow for several hours. When I went to move car into garage, door handles were frozen, but broke free fairly easily. Door opened, but I found I could not close doors after entering car. Widow hit cold door seal hard - felt like window would break...

    Air noise from driver front windshield?

    We picked up 9/20 build Model Y LR about 3 weeks ago. We noticed specific wind noise from lower front corner of driver side windshield. Sounded almost like a slightly cracked open window. It was very noticeable above 50mph. We told brought it in on day 7 (soonest appointment), SC tried to...

    Deciding to Delay Delivery until Battery Day

    You don't order a new computer when there is a presser scheduled and rumors of a new, much faster processor. You push a few weeks if your situation allows - however, if your computer died, you have to replace it. I saw this as a similar situation. Wise move is to push a couple weeks - which...

    Rear hatch privacy cover.

    Window Tint is total limo style black out. Privacy is not a concern. As someone with sport utility vehicles for years.. storage covers can provide privacy and also a "finished" look to rear. The trade-off, however, is that you constantly uninstall and reinstall cover each time you need to...
