    Any MYP Owners Running Stock?

    I'm running stock and don't plan to change anything until its time for new tires. Then I am hoping some manufacturer will make some decent UHP All Seasons in the correct size AND have published, measured low rolling resistance numbers for them. I'm looking at you MIchelin. If I end up deciding...

    Front Bumper Debris Hit

    Only a few weeks old and already have damage. The car in front of me ran over a square piece of wood/drywall type of material while changing lanes and it shot up and hit my front bumper cover. It left a square pattern scratch and scuff mark outline of the object (see pic). I got a nice video of...

    Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 on Uberturbines- 265/35 & 275/35R21

    Thanks @gundarx for the report. It sounds like any range issues are minor and a reasonable trade off for a great tire. When it comes time to replace the stock PZero’s I may go with these and hopefully find a good alignment shop.

    Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 on Uberturbines- 265/35 & 275/35R21

    @gundarx After a few more weeks what do you think of these tires. Another user in another thread returned them under Michelin’s 60-day return policy due to them being too noisy and inefficient. Do you have a better feel now for them?

    Tires: Model Y Performance with 21" Ubertines

    What did you replace them with? I wonder if the noise difference is the result of any noise reduction in the OEM Pirellis like foam.

    Model Y Performance In The Snow

    Find the thread about Michelin All Season 4’s. 265/35 works great for the front wheels apparently.

    Front Seat Cover Recommendations

    @Mike_TV Just curious why you rated my comment disagree? It is literally spelled out the in the manual. Am I reading it wrong or is there a better solution you have? I have the white interior and would be interested in options beyond ceramic coating. The solution above seems interesting.

    Front Seat Cover Recommendations

    None. Read the owner’s manual- seat covers interfere with airbag deployment.

    CA CAV HOV Lane Decal - Wait times

    Buried in the FAQ it implies you need your regular plates. I was going to apply yesterday but I guess I’ll just wait. I don’t know how long it takes to get plates right now.

    Nice! Where did you go to get the PPF done?

    Paint Quality

    It’s not great paint coming from modern European car standards. I knew this before buying but still am very happy with my decision to get a Y. The car and tech makes up for that in so many ways. When the time comes I plan there will be a thorough detail and paint repair correction sometime in...

    Model Y insurance ..AAA?

    USAA was the lowest by $400-$800 per year among all the quotes we got (Geico, Progressive, Liberty Mutual) here in CA. They have great customer service like AAA. Of course you need to qualify for membership.

    Got MY delivered, but rear driver door won't close.

    If everything else is great I would accept and just make a service appointment in the app to fix the door/window. Ideally do this in the app within 24 hours.

    Bay Area CA - Blue/White - Anyone else waiting?

    Picked up my MYP Blue/White 12/26 a day after the vin was assigned on 12/25. Apparently it was already at the Colma delivery center when my account was updated with the vin. Ordered updated spec on 11/15, SF.

    2021 MYP Waiting Room

    They never gave me the option to note anything even when I asked. In fact they wouldn't let me open the doors to inspect the car until I accepted delivery via the app and paid the amount due. I jumped through those hoops given I wouldn't legally be on the hook until driving off the property and...

    2021 MYP Waiting Room

    Edit: tl;dr: Good fit and finish, minor stuff, great car and we are thrilled with it! We picked up our car on 12/26! It was not flawless but it was very good. The white interior had no scratches, damage or scruff marks, just some of the plastic wrap that didn't get removed all the way in the...

    2021 MYP Waiting Room

    Well today I was having major issues with jumping through the credit union's hoops and it was clear I would not be able to get the cashiers check sent to Tesla before year end. I emailed the Tesla finance rate match email and in less than 5 minutes got a response. Updated my account to Tesla...

    2021 MYP Waiting Room

    Checked this morning and no VIN. Checked again after opening gifts and lo and behold, GOT A VIN! 98XXX. MYP Blue/White/NoFSD/NoTow. SF Bay Area. 1) Original order for MY AWD: 2/15/2020 2) Postponed delivery based on text message to January: 6/11/2020 3) Test drove MYP and changed existing...

    Front license Plate adhesive

    I’m looking into this: https://licenseplatewrap.com/ Living in the Bay Area no front plate isn’t an option. You will be ticketed just being parked on the street without it and bridges are using plate reading tech for easier toll collection.

    2021 MYP Waiting Room

    When did you order? I updated mine to that configuration minus the tow package in Mid November and no date range estimate yet.
  22. A


    That’s more than the winter package that includes the 20” Inductions, TPMS sensors, and Pirelli winter tires. That makes no sense.

    Upgrade from Model 3 - questions.

    This was my concern which is why I had ordered a MP3 after driving both that and the MY LR. Weeks later though I drove the MYP and switched to that. Such a difference coming from a BMW M-Sport between performance and LR.

    Model Y Performance VIN 81,*** rejected

    We’re there any non paint issues such as panel gaps, front doors shaped wrong, etc? Paint is one of those things that if corrected properly is probably safe to take delivery if the rest of the car is great. I have a Blue MYP on order so this is concerning.

    Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 on Uberturbines- 265/35 & 275/35R21

    For the Inductions you could get the Vredestein Quantrac Pros - excellent reviews. They aren't available in the 21" sizes for the Uberturbine wheels so I was thinking about the option of swapping to the Inductions. This tire though sounds like a good way to avoid the hassle, even though they are...

    How does Tesla handle getting payment from a third party lender?

    I'm re-igniting this thread because I got a great 2% quote from a credit union and have been in communication with a sales advisor regarding the process. I originally chose cash as the payment type and completed the steps in the account page all the way through the insurance. The credit union...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    First indication of a VIN was a text at 11:42am saying its ready to be scheduled for delivery. Within 1-minute after that, before I had a chance to read it, a delivery appointment text went out. Later I went to the My Account page and the vin was there.

    Can you fit 19x9.5 over the MY Performance brakes?

    I actually want all of those things except the staggered 21" wheels/tires (harsh ride being a function of trading off sport suspension and tires for non-sport, and less range being solved by not getting 21's). Basically the exact same car as is but with 20" Inductions would be my sweet spot.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    It's in the quote that is also the first post of this topic. M3P Blue/White/NoFSD. Serramonte is the pickup location as I guess SF stopped doing deliveries.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    VIN assigned today, 85xxx. Already at the pickup center ready to pickup tomorrow. That's about 7 weeks, right inline with the esitmate.

    2021 MYP Waiting Room

    It seems like those of us with a MYP with white premium interior are not getting many updates and have long wait times. Should we start a rumor that the new center console is being added to the premium interiors first, hence the longer lead time?

    2021 MYP Waiting Room

    Still nothing- no VIN, no estimated date range, nada. Updated order to Performance from LR AWD on 11/15. San Francisco. MYP/Blue/White/No FSD/No tow hitch. No trade-in. All fields complete including insurance.

    Auto-dimming side mirror design issue?

    There is a reddit thread going on regarding what may be a design issue on the the newer auto-dimming side mirrors on the Model Y. The complaints are that drivers 6'x" cannon adjust the driver side mirror to have a good visibility of the lane to the left. Multiple people are indicating this was...

    Red Model Y 75XXX Flawless on Delivery

    It’s nice to see a post about a truly “flawless” delivery. Usually these posts go something like... “Picked up my MY and it was flawless. Except for some paint blemishes, smudge marks, a misaligned interior panel, and other minor issues that can be corrected with a visit to the service center...

    Got My 2021 VIN!

    Sounds like wise reasons to make the switch. I have a performance on order but am coming from a 135i M-Sport on low profile p-zeros so am used to feeling every pebble in the road. Way back in the early 2000’s I had a 6-speed manual 540i. The 5er BMW platform is still one of the ultimate...

    Got My 2021 VIN!

    Just curious why you are moving from the 540i xDrive to a non-performance MY. That sounds like an amazing car that is higher end than the MY.

    California waiting room Q3

    If true I think it is obnoxious and obscene that there are still quality and alignment issues happening at this rate. All manufacturers have issues here and there but this is an order of magnitude worse than any other manufacturer. I plan to spend an hour or more, checklist in hand, and set an...

    What did you do with the Uberturbines for winter?

    Wouldn’t it be a dream if we could get together and convince Verdenstein (sp?) to produce the Quatrac Pro’s in the 21” staggered sizes and become the official go-to for all weather tires for Model Y Performance?

    Good body shops in So SF bay area?

    Precision Auto Body - South San Francisco, CAI’ve used these people twice for a BMW and they did a fantastic job. They weren’t even the highest estimate but I’d still go back to them again over a more expensive shop. Near SFO in South San Francisco. Precision Auto Body

    Vendor Show Off Your Aftermarket Model Y Wheels

    I would imagine that given the wider wheel it would add some weight and thereby decrease range. It would also require a wider tire all things being equal (ex. 265 vs 255) which would impact range. Take a look at tires out there too. You may not find the size/tire combo you want unless you want...
