    Anyone have wh/mi numbers going from 21 to light aftermarket 19s? Saw someone post that they were actually getting 10% worse numbers at 75mph due to loss of aerodynamics of the oem 21in wheels.

    Window Tinting ruined my Door....

    The tinter disables the lock and rolls the window up after they open the door to tint the entire thing. They closed it without rolling down the window enough to clear the trim. The damage is their fault i would make them pay for it.

    Scratched all my glass

    Well, turns out they weren’t scratches at all. It was tiny finite specs of lint the microfiber towel left on inside the glass. Could only see it with direct sun or shining a strong flash light. Got them removed with a proper glass towel and all clear. So relieved, and yeah i’m an idiot :).

    Model Y 19" vs 20" Decision Guide

    TSportline wheels unfortunately put their name embedded into the wheel perimeter. Pretty unsightly and odd they have to advertise that way. What other options are you guys considering for winter wheel set?

    Scratched all my glass

    Thanks webbah! Very helpful. What orbital polisher did you use? My fingernail does not seem to catch them on the glass which is good. Also about how many passes per section did it take?

    In my attempt to remove water spots i’ve completely scratched all surfaces of the glass on my new Y. I used this with plenty of clay lube: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B072HHT8NF?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share I don’t see the scratches visibly from the outside and only when viewing against direct...

    Windshield streaks

    As someone who has never touched a polisher and also a car detailing newb, is this something i could do? and how much would all that cost?
  22. S

    Windshield streaks

    FYI I wiped off / cleaned the blades with some glass cleaner and microfiber towel. You wouldn't believe how much black came off onto the towel. I didn't get it all off yet, but it reduced the streaks significantly. Going to try cleaning with some rubbing alcohol.

    PPF Cost???

    Did anyone have to sign a paint damage waiver? Had a shop tell me that bc of tesla paint. Also wondering if anyone has actually removed ppf from a tesla when you have to replace it 5-10 years. I know they require a waiver when removing it. Seems pointless if the thing it is protecting get...

    Great, faux PPF :D. If it's the molding, I'm wondering what service could do to address it? And if its even worth it?

    Car already has PPF?

    Yeah honestly didn't notice it for 2 weeks. Doesn't bother me, but if it ends up yellowing, rusting, or collecting dirt that might be an issue.

    Car already has PPF?

    There is ppf on both front and back bumper, and the two side mirrors. That's a lot to replace! Maybe the car was built from spare parts that were already ppf from another vehicle in CA?

    Car already has PPF?

    I've had my white model perf Y (vin 28xxx) for 2 weeks and noticed while hand washing today that it already has PPF on the front bumper, rear bumper, and two side mirrors. From all I can tell there is no way this was a car returned (it was delivered on a train from CA to GA that took 2 weeks). I...
