    Acceleration Boost option standard for all LR Model Ys?

    I thought the stealth is the same motor as performance, just without all the we extra?

    Acceleration Boost option standard for all LR Model Ys?

    You are looking at 1 to 2 months wait vs 5 to 8 months for a LR.

    Acceleration Boost option standard for all LR Model Ys?

    No. $2k difference is with 19 in. If you get 19in with AB, it's only $2k difference. For extra $2k you Will get a lot of extra with the performance, plus it's faster and a much earlier delivery date.

    Acceleration Boost option standard for all LR Model Ys?

    Totally agreed, also I don't even know if insurance will include that in if I total the car.

    Acceleration Boost option standard for all LR Model Ys?

    Yeah I heard that, but what are people really gaining from it? Same price, same range. I doubt anyone will drive a million miles with theirs.

    Acceleration Boost option standard for all LR Model Ys?

    Mine came with all season tires, they been putting all seasons on the performance Model. Pretty sure 19 in rims will fit, seen a lot ppl did that.

    Acceleration Boost option standard for all LR Model Ys?

    Unless you care about the range, I think the better deal is to get the performance Model instead of buying LR with Boost. That was what I had and I sold it for a performance model instead. After you add the boost, it's only $2k difference. If you want the 20 in wheels, it's basically same price...

    Annoyed that app/car seem to treat Friday evening as the "weekend" even though my power company does not.

    Agreed! Tesla needs to give us custom time for off-peak. Let us input from what time to what time each day of the week.

    How well does the glass roof reflect heat?

    Thank you. Ppl need to stop being stupid about owning a Tesla. Thinking some most basic things has to be done differently. Yes, for some stuff, the car is different, but the basic are still the same. Yes, you can rotate the tires at any shop, yes you can change tires at any shop. No you don't...

    How well does the glass roof reflect heat?

    Here we go again. Ppl keep insisting Tesla made a car that can't stay in the sun and needs constant cooling. Ice car get just as hot and even without the glass roof. Why do you think kids and pets die inside car every year cause some dumb parents forgot them? Even at 80 degrees inside a car...

    MYP Its really really fast!!!!

    What tires did your came with? Are they all season? Did you get matrix headlights? I read some ppl are still getting summer tires and only performance model is getting matrix headlights. My MYP is supposed to be delivered next month. Hoping I'll get the all seasons and matrix headlights.

    Anyone regret buying the Acceleration Boost for their Model Y?

    I know that. Just stating that range changes all the time. It can be up and down. 2km in a day is nothing to worry about. Doubt it's ties to AB.

    Anyone regret buying the Acceleration Boost for their Model Y?

    I don't know about that. Does the performance Model use the same battery as the long range? If yes, then isn't this a bigger problem for performance Y? I had AB before I sold my long range and is waiting for a per model now. My range changes all the time. As weather was getting warmer, I see my...

    Anyone regret buying the Acceleration Boost for their Model Y?

    I say get the performance. I still regret not getting the performance, instead I have FSD, paid 7k for it back then. Much rather spent that for performance Model. What you can do is try acceleration boost for 2 days and get a refund, then go test drive a performance and see if you can tell the...

    Test drive - LR Vs Performance

    I got a LR with FSD instead of a performance. Still kicking myself for it. I would have enjoyed it more with a performance. Still waiting for fsd to come, let's see when or if it will ever happen.

    128 GB USB Tesla branded thumb drive now available

    That is a USB drive, and is not made for constant write and rewrite or extreme temperature in the car. Like many others had said. A high endurance micro SD card is the way to go. You can just buy a reader that have both usb A and C adapter. Plenty of those on Amazon. Here's a good article about...

    Seat Fold Button

    That's nice of you, but why not fix it for free? If you try to sell it one day privately,I bet you the buyer will care. Just a thought. My button works, but the seats don't align if both side recliner all the way back. Going in this Wednesday to change them out for free.

    Tesla software hints at MY's HEPA filter & Bioweapon Defense Mode

    Well, for the model s, bio defense is a software upgrade plus the filter for $500. Hoping it's the same for the Y. Haha. Don't hold your breath for air suspension.

    Haha, I think he meant 315

    2020.40.7 Just downloaded and installed

    No, it won't matter. I had my Y since March, so the total range dropped. I can always try to charge the car to 100% and drive it to less than 10% and charge it up again to reset it. Probably will see some range back, but I am too lazy. You will only see lower range on the performance Y.

    Proportions... not right

    I do agree with you that the S is a better looking car. Having own both, i still prefer the look of the S. But calling the Y ugly and disproportional is little too much. It's a SUV, it's usually won't look better than a sportier car, but it's still pretty good looking car to me. I actually...

    Heated steering wheel for y

    if you want reliable source, just keep checking on the the major website. Teslarati, eletrek. most of the post here are what people read from website. I wouldn't trust a random person coming here posting about certain news without it being on a major news site.

    Heated steering wheel for y

    O yeah, i heard the same thing from my wife's uncle's high school bestfriend's daughter's exboyfriend's who works at Tesla head quarter as a janitor. Must be the same source. All jokes aside, I think this is a non news, at least for now. No major news site are reporting it. It's just a...

    Nobody noticed the range bump?

    All model y is getting range bump, not just new one.
  32. K

    2020.40.7 Just downloaded and installed

    Yup, range is increased. Mine is a 2xxx Vin build in March so probably all Y will get the increase, not just newer models. Before update 100% was 301, now 308.

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    For what it's worth, Taptes new version with USB C is scheduled for shipping Nov 4 on Amazon. I assume that will be pretty accurate date sine Amazon is handling the shipping and easy return through Amazon. I might give that a try since it's half the price and easily free return to Amazon if I...

    Looks like it's hardware related. So current owners probably won't see a bump. Tesla boosts Model Y range - Electrek

    Haha, that already exists. It's called performance stealth. You pay the same price as performance, without the wheels, brakes, and suspension. You do get the spoiler and badge.

    zefnet 11.5 kW charger for Model Y

    Being restricted to charge only 11pm to 7am can be annoying. Granted most people will only need to charge during those times 95% of the time. I also used a non tesla charger since my local electric company gave us a rebate only on certain brand. Not as much as yours,but without the restrictions...

    Jeda Hub for Model Y

    Well, with the new announcement of the refresh, I don't know how much longer they can sell their chargers. Same with the hubs. The new charger on the 3, and I assume for the Y also won't be removable anymore. The usb ports are going to be inside the glove compartment. Looks like their charger...

    Performance Boost Available

    For awhile I was regretting getting FSD instead of performance, not anymore. I think the performance boost is a perfect balance. Now that they announced they announced bird's eye view will be FSD feature, plus the rewrite update is coming soon. I think I made the right decision.

    Need for screen protector?

    I personally don't feel the needs, yes maybe fingerprint, but if the screen is on, you really don't even notice it. People get it in case they scratches the screen. It really puzzle me how? you really have to purposely try to scratch it. It's not a cell phone that you carry everywhere. I mean...

    haha, it already happened to most of the people replied if you read the comment. I had a Model S, it was just as bad.
