    Poll. Model Y vs Cybertrk

    Hey all, I'm a Model 3 owner. My wife has a Honda and we were looking to change to SUV in about 2 years. So she would have an SUV and i'd have my sporty 3.I did not plan on getting a cybertrk, we were in the talks of a model Y, but even I was not that excited about it nor cared to put a deposit...

    Okay, I think down the road I’m getting one. Here’s why.

    I like the rugged form and functionality of it all. No need to worry about scratches, no need to wash it every week...it's just a truck that's badass. Not the prettiest, but when do you ever go around looking at trucks and say that's a really good looking truck?

    [Poll]- Cybertruck costs 39k to 69k will kill other Tesla EV?

    I wanted a SUV for my wife and preordered the cyber truck over the Y. I have a 3. Seats 6 and is bullet proof? Lots of utility too! Plus i'll probably not wash it as much or worry about sledgehammers hitting me.

    First Production Owners: Would you add AWD for 6K?

    Only a month in and someone does this ... argh.. city parking...

    Just an update on my situation... I went to see my PFF installer. He said he's 100% sure the paint under has not been scratched. He'll redo my clearbra for half his front bumper price of $300. However, he's fully booked at this time. Let me know how much it'll cost for your repaint!

    Bay Area: Center Console wrapping recommendations?

    I've installed 2 different wraps on my console. If you got an 1hour of free time, it's best to order the 30 dollar kit. I ordered 20 bucks worth of vinyl and cut it myself the first time. I went with the 30 dollar kit as it's much less of a hassle. Paying $300 is a total rip off.

    Some asshole scraped the bumper of my car.

    Yeah, it's a bummer that some asshole didn't even bother leaving a note. My ppf guy will look at it, maybe he can touch it up, but if he can't I think i'm going to redo the front bumper.

    Some asshole scraped the bumper of my car.

    I discovered this on my car today.. This is on the driver's side. I honestly have no clue when I got this as I rarely park near anyone and give others plenty of space. Luckily I have PPF on the front bumper. I'm hopeful that the paint is not messed up, but it's not healing with near boiling...

    Quick Poll, How many RWD owners would have waited for the AWD/

    I wanted the awd, but I'm in California and it's not really needed for me. I'm envious but happy I got my car. On the bright side , my delivery was rushed and chaotic, so a week after I had my car I noticed EAP was enabled. Free EAP is better than AWD!

    Second Full Charge had more mileage than first full charge!

    First full charge 1 week after I got the car was at 306 miles. After two months of driving, this morning I have a trip and charged to full to a surprising 313 miles. In that two month span I did get supercharging once. I'm kind of surprised my battery hasn't degraded as fast as I thought!
