    Xpel Prime XR vs PLUS worth the extra $150?

    Signature tint in Costa Mesa. Good price and result. Went with luminar air 70 windshield and ceramics all around.

    Modern Spare still recommended?

    Great I'll be placing my order with the case as well. Maybe you can try the bubble wrap to keep the jack in place and not roll around inside the case.

    Modern Spare still recommended?

    Did you buy the modern spare with the carrying case? On the fence whether I need the carrying case or not.

    Gemini black wheel covers?

    I actually ended up buying a different looking set of covers (looks more like the induction wheels than the uberturbine) but it doesn't come with the foam strips. Is this necessary or can I make my own foam strip for the cover from somewhere else? On a side note, the irony of having 21"...

    Gemini black wheel covers?

    Did you need to get some foam strips to pad the cover against the wheel itself? I see some vendors offer the foam strip with the product.

    Modern Spare still recommended?

    We will be taking a road trip this summer and do not want to be stranded on the road if our tire goes flat. Is Modern Spare still the recommended spare tire for a Model Y? If so, is it recommended to get the entire kit (tools + cover bag) too or can I buy the tools elsewhere to save some cash...

    Gemini black wheel covers?

    I have a gray MYP that I switched to 19" gemini wheels on delivery due to the harsh ride of the 21" uberturbines. Only downside of the 19" gemini is that they're funky looking, so I removed the aero covers to ride with just the plain alloy spokes. Only problem is the silver alloy doesn't quite...

    Model Y HEPA filter air intake cover?

    I did that but the non-HEPA filter Model Y would probably need intake vent cover...but the HEPA filter Model Y intake is designed different so not sure if necessitating the air intake vent cover at all?

    Model Y HEPA filter air intake cover?

    I have a 2022 MYP with HEPA / biodefense mode and where I park there's a lot of leaves and debris that falls on the car. My concern is that the debris will eventually make its way into the air intake and clog up the filter. Is this a valid concern for the HEPA / biodefense model because I opened...

    Ear pain/Pressure help

    This is what I did: open hatch, tightened all 4 of the rubber stops all the way down (2 on the outside, 2 in the middle of the upper hatch), effectively shortened all the rubber stops (make sure when you adjust you grab the whole stop and not just the rubber nubs) slightly loosen/lengthen the...

    Ear pain/Pressure help

    With the trunk hatch open, you should see 4 rubber cylinders pointing out from the top part of the hatch. They articulate into the bottom part of the hatch below (you can see the round circle where they should contact). I adjusted the rubber stops of the top of the hatch.

    Ear pain/Pressure help

    Not sure if this will be helpful for others but the MYP had quite a bit of booming noise after switching my 21" Uberturbines to 19" Gemini wheels (probably due to the lesser quality tires). I adjusted to two outer rubber stops on my hatch door with the envelope test for adequate seal, but was...

    Windshield tinting for heat rejection without rainbow effect?

    Just an update I did get the Llumar Air 80 isntalled in my front windshield. Pretty happy with the heat rejection, clarify, although only slight rainbow effect with my polarized sunglasses but not distracting at all (only there if I look hard for it).

    Signature Glass Tinting Costa Mesa California

    I got my MYP done at Signature Tinting as well. I came in knowing that I wanted the windshield and the all the other windows done with CTX (except the roof). They helped me adjust the tint level to match the desired darkness all around since the factory rear passenger windows were dyed (not...

    General maintenance?

    With my ICE car, I usually turn off the AC (but keep fans running) about 1/2 mile before I reach my destination to prevent the mildew smell from occurring. My MYP has HEPA filter, so I continue this practice to keep the mildew smell away?

    General maintenance?

    My MYP is the first EV I've got so I'm trying to figure out what additional maintenance I need to perform besides the usual. This is taken from the Tesla Model Y manual: Brake fluid health check every 2 years (replace if necessary) A/C desiccant bag replacement every 4 years. Cabin air filter...

    Outdoor NEMA 14-50 outlet?

    Thanks for the suggestion ambudriver03. The enclosure is perfect for my 2-3x / month charging need. My dad is an electrician as well, so he can definitely change out the standard receptacle to an industrial one. He wanted me to pick out the parts I wanted so that's why I am shopping around. This...

    Outdoor NEMA 14-50 outlet?

    Thanks this is exactly what I'm looking for. I want to pair this up with a Bryant 9450FR 14-50 outlet, and it seems that I should be able to remove the included receptacle and install the Bryant 9450FR 14-50 outlet instead? Also it looks like no need for a cover plating with this approach, as...

    Outdoor NEMA 14-50 outlet?

    I'm getting a NEMA 14-50 outlet installed at my dad's house for the few times a month we are there to visit. The main breaker box is outside towards the back side of his house, and he already got an outdoor 60amp subpanel installed (up to code with GFCI fuse) there as well. My Model Y can drive...

    NEMA 14-50 instead of 6-50 for charging?

    Well full disclosure this location is my parent's house and the 6-50 is deep inside the garage which won't be accessible due to their belongings. I won't be able to throw out their stuff to make room for my car to charge when I'm over. However they do have a separate 50Amp subpanel outside the...

    NEMA 14-50 instead of 6-50 for charging?

    I have an opportunity to put in a NEMA 14-50 or 6-50 for the same installation cost (having a 50A subpanel built also) for dedicated EV charging. The house already has a 6-50 outlet being used for another appliance, and I happen to have an extra 6-50 receptacle lying around. However, my research...

    Order custom plate for new model Y?

    My MY was delivered about a month ago so it only has a temporary license tag. Can I apply for a custom plate yet or do I have to wait until registration is completed and I receive my official plate (non-custom)? Also is the same true for the HOV decal?

    Contemplating about switching MY LR order to MYP

    Oh yea. My original OD was mid Nov 2021, got pushed to September.... since I was gonna spend 2k for acceleration boost for the LR, I said screw it and got MYP. Swapped out the 21" uberturbines for another gemini set + cash so I basically got my LR with acceleration boost...delivered 2 days after...

    Contemplating about switching MY LR order to MYP

    OD for original MY LR was mid November 2021. EDD jumped all over the place from Oct 2022 to longest of Dec 2022 and shortest of June 2022. It was July 29 - Sept 23 2022 the first week of April so I decided to switch over to MYP.

    Contemplating about switching MY LR order to MYP

    What's your EDD now? If you can spring for it just put the upgrade in ASAP. Our only regret is not changing to MYP earlier in the year. It's certainly a huge relief for us being able to get the car now as we're expecting soon. Won't have time to deal with EDD or deliveries once the new kiddo comes.

    Contemplating about switching MY LR order to MYP

    Just wanted to post an update that I changed my MY LR to MYP order on the Friday morning right after Giga Texas event the night before (since no new MY announcements). The next day, Saturday, my EDD changed to mid April. Saturday evening VIN was assigned, so we went ahead and uploaded insurance...

    Wind noise reduction kit?

    Does the wind noise reduction or car seal kit make an appreciable difference for the Model Y? I have done it before for my old car and it made very only minor improvements, not sure if would do it again. Now the Tesla is brand new so it's not quite necessary at all?

    Xpel Prime XR vs PLUS worth the extra $150?

    I'm getting a window tint quote for all the side and rear windows. Apparently Xpel Prime XR is $150 cheaper than the PLUS version. I am going to get the windshield done with Prime XR PLUS, but I am not sure if it's worth it to do Plus version for the side & rear windows. The car would be sitting...

    Trade/Swap 21" Uberturbines w/ Michelin Pilot Sport AS for 19" Gemini (SoCal - OC / LA )

    I just took delivery of my MYP this weekend with only 20 miles on the odometer. Won't need to drive the MYP for some time so I'm looking to trade the 21" Uberturbines with Michelin Pilot Sport AS tires (essential brand new) for a 19" Gemini set with tires in similar condition + cash. Based in...

    Windshield tinting for heat rejection without rainbow effect?

    I am looking to tint my windshield for additional heat rejection. However I hear some products can leave a rainbow effect, especially with polarized sunglasses. I'm currently looking at Xpel XR Prime Plus vs Spectra Photosync, is this something that the forum recommends to avoid the rainbow...

    Having 21" uberturbines swapped to 19" at America's Tire?

    I'm swapping my MYP 21" Uberturbines to 19" Gemini wheels. Already purchased the 19" wheels w/ aero caps, but will need a new set of tires to go with this. I'm planning on getting my tires (Michelin Pilot Sport AS4) at America's Tire. Do you guys know if as part of the tire installation, they...

    Contemplating about switching MY LR order to MYP

    I have a basic MY LR (MSM, black interior, Gemini wheels, no FSD, no tow) with order date late November 11, 2021. Original EDD was October 2022, got moved up and down a bunch of times, currently sitting at EDD July 29 - Sept 23, 2022 so who knows. I'm now considering the MYP upgrade for $5k...
