    Music USB

    I'm personally using a 500GB Samsung T7, but like charlesoris says a 500GB or 1TB Samsung, should be good enough. If you're willing to spend the time and energy to convert your music to FLAC, you'll enjoy it a lot more. I've been listening to music in FLAC format for several years and I don't...

    Music and Cam files on same USB storage?

    FLAC is the way to go.

    Music USB

    Why not just use an SSD with 2 partitions, one for dashcam recording and the other for playing audio? I've been doing it this way for over a year. Like ElectricAnt54, all my music is in FLAC format.

    Hansshow auto frunk warped my hood?

    That would be me. The original service center that my car went to pretty much told me to go pound sand. After the last service visit there, the vehicle was returned to a different service center whereupon it was inspected and returned to me with further damage. This service center agreed that...

    Had my Y for three months, five weeks in service center

    I had the car delivered to the other service center and when I when to pick it up, it was in worse state than before so I had the service center manager come out and look at it. Even she agreed that the car should not have been returned like that. I had some work colleagues with me and they...

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    While I too would like to see this, I doubt it would make much difference. I sent a certified letter to Elon's office regarding the damage done to my less than one month old vehicle (at the time) while in the possession of the service center and I have yet to receive a reply. I also requested...

    Hello everyone i have a question about the referral program.

    I have no idea. Overall I'm not happy with Tesla, so when their business resolutions team contact me, they're going to be asked some very uncomfortable questions.

    Sold my Y Performance

    I feel your pain. I picked my car up (Model Y LR) 4 months ago today. It went in for warranty issues on the 26th of April. In that time it has spent 54 non consecutive days with Tesla service, been returned with a bent hood, door dings, scratched paintwork and damaged/dirty headliner to name...

    I don't know you and you don't know me. With all due respect, I couldn't really care what you believe. My story is full of holes? Keep believing your own fairytales my friend. You're making way too many assumptions here. I know the truth, my work colleagues know the truth and the service center...

    So I'm finally reaching breaking point with Tesla. In 2 days time it will be 4 months of owning a Model Y of which it has spent 53 non-consecutive days and counting in Tesla service to address delivery issues and the damage caused during previous visits. The current service center have done...

    Had my Y for three months, five weeks in service center

    Sorry to hear of your troubles. It could be much much worse believe me. I regret buying my Model Y. One service center f'ed up my car. Bought the car on the 30th of March, took it in on the 26th of April to address delivery issues and received it back on the 1st of May with scratches, a door...

    Samsung T7 SSD vs high endurance class 10 Micro SD card

    It's not a capacity issue, it's more to do with the fact that the USB drive is not really designed for the number of continuous writes. This causes the drive to fail after several months of usage.

    Tesla service, what a joke!! Extremely frustrated.

    Tesla has a long way to go with regard to customer service. I love the car, however, with my current situation, I cannot recommend them to anyone. Horrible experience you say? I received my car back from service to fix issues that should never have been there in the first place at delivery, with...

    Does anyone charge from a regular outlet?

    I've been charging my car from a standard outlet since I picked it up at the end of March while I wait for my electrician to get his act together. I too unplug from the outlet, but it's probably not a good idea long term as it will eventually cause the outlet to become loose. I'm having a HPWC...

    Finally got the car back today. Had it delivered to another service center closer to work. Pi$$ poor job on the repairs 😡. Returned with a lot more scratches 🤬🤬🤬. Went with 3 work colleagues to pick the car up. Examination of the hood clearly indicates it was closed on something as there is a...

    Hello everyone i have a question about the referral program.

    You can ask your SA to add it to your order. If they're not incompetent like my first SA was, then they should be able to do it. I used someone's referral code and they got their 1000 miles but I didn't get mine because according to another SA, the time period had expired. I had not even taken...

    TESLA OAKVILLE SCRATCHED ALL MY RIMS DURING SERVICE

    Count yourself lucky it's only 4 wheels. At least you aren't looking at having to replace your hood. My car was f'ed badly. Scratched paint, dinged door to name a few things and a bent hood that they are trying to blame on a perfectly working frunk opener and all on a car that was less than a...

    Tesla Offer Model 3/Y Frunk Group Buy

    There doesn't seem to be any scratches on the underside, but there were scratches on the top side of the hood. The way it is curved up suggests the hood was closed on something non-marking. It's virtually impossible for it to bend in the manner that it did without there being something...

    Don't want to name the service center just yet publicly. I'm trying to remain restrained right now and once this is all over I'll have no reservations about naming them. You can always DM me if you really want to know.

    Already quoted them Magnuson-Moss. They don't give a $#it. The stress from this is starting to make me and my wife ill. When I installed it, I moved the hood up and down several times without power and not once was there enough resistance to cause an issue. Service Manager claims that even if...

    Would you still buy a Model Y now if you could do it again?

    Really would love to say yes, but due to the damage caused to my (less than a month old car at the time) while in Tesla's possession and poor customer service, I don't think I would want to deal with that again.

    Tesla Offer Model 3/Y Frunk Group Buy

    When I installed it intially, without the 12v connected I was able to move the hood up and down without any real issue and no excessive force. The attached picture was taken 5 days before it went in for service and multiple uses of the frunk. I don't have the car at the moment as it is at a body...

    The only reason the frunk needed to be accessed was for the adjustment of the fender on that side.

    I know, but they keep on insisting with their crap. I'm trying to reach out to Tesla Offer to ask how many kits they have out there and whether they have ever come across this, the answer to which I am going to guess is going to be no. Right now, I've heard nothing back from TO support so I...

    Well the service center keep insisting it's the frunk opener that caused it, which I know is complete bs.

    I will certainly be asking them to preserve and provide all video/photos that they took when the car was dropped off. They keep claiming that it was the frunk opener that caused it to bend and that it will occur again. I'm filing a police report. The service manager was supposed to contact me...

    Yes, they're definitely looking to pin it on the frunk opener, never mind that it has worked flawlessly since it was installed.

    You normally close it electronically, however you can close it by hand. When I dropped the car off I clearly explained to them the operation of it. I'm pretty anal about my car and if this had happened prior to the service visit, I would have known about it. The fact that there are scratches on...

    Can everyone who has this installed on their vehicle, please confirm that it is both working correctly and that their hood has not been damaged in any way. Sent my vehicle in for warranty repairs to Tesla and got it back with a bent hood. They are now claiming that my warranty is void...

    More Tesla Woes

    Well the service manager just contacted me to tell me that the hood on the vehicle is bent and is not covered by warranty because I have the power opening frunk. Since this was working without any issues and since there were no scratches on the paint where the hood has bent prior to the service...

    I didn't say I had an active Covid infection, so not sure where you got that from. I said I had my 2nd vaccine last night. For the record, my wife has been dealing with Covid patients since last year while some of her colleagues whose job it was to deal with them, didn't want to do it. Now that...

    Excuse me folks for being a little incoherent and extra salty today, it's from my 2nd Covid injection last night and the painkillers I took this morning. So the service manager called me to say they were picking up the car and dropping off the loaner. Well they picked up the car alright and left...

    Ensure you take a video of your car when you drop it off and of the loaner vehicle if they are providing one. Also, document everything.

    Ended up having to postpone the PPF. Got a sarcastic message from the service center attempting to push the blame on me for picking my car up early. So I replied asking if they would like me to file a police report for criminal damage to my car. Received a message back saying the manager would...

    My frunk was better aligned than it was at the factory after I installed the power frunk opener. The 2 rubber grommets were adjusted at the opposite ends of the spectrum. How the hell does someone at the factory "forget" to install 2 clips on the rocker panel? Every single employee working on...

    I love the car, I just hate incompetent people. As much of a supporter of Tesla as I too am, I'm not going to sugar coat it when it comes to bs like this. No accountability is the real issue here and one way for Tesla to resolve this would be to start charging their employees who screw up, for...

    So just picked my car up from the service center. Got the car back in worse condition than it went in for. Not going to name the service center here for now. Car was dirty inside. Rear headliner replaced, now requires front headliner replacing. Headliner dirty. Paint scratched in trunk and on...

    OP, this is completely unacceptable from Tesla. Burn the video onto CD and and mail it to Elon's office via certified mail to Fremont and ask how in any realm is this acceptable.

    Quality control issues with my new Model Y

    Sorry to hear of your woes. I read this forum before purchasing and was in two minds until I did the overnight test drive. Still love the car, but Tesla has a long way to go to get their act together. Before there was email, people used to write letters. I encourage people to share their...

    Quality control issues with my new Model Y

    Service appointment got pushed back to Friday as they don't have the headliner. I will be pushing them to fix all issues and then I'll be sending a letter to Elon's office.

    Quality control issues with my new Model Y

    Unfortunately I'm unable to get a clear picture of it due to the colour. It's more like a drip on the quarter panel rather than the rear door.
