    Any other Y owners put a deposit on a Lyriq?

    Just like I put $100 down on my Y on somewhat of a whim, I've now done the same on a Lyriq AWD. Assuming Cadillac can deliver on the promise next year, it offers an awful lot of car for the money. While the size is more comparable to a Y, the features are more on par with an S or X and even...

    May have used the cruise control and auto wipers for the last time...

    I just want to state before my rant that the MY is a great car and one of my faves despite being an ICE fan from my days growing up in Michigan. But the cruise control and auto wipers are just rubbish. I keep thinking Tesla will improve the wipers and phantom braking through updates and keep...

    Model Y - Just OK cold weather car

    Recent snow in Seattle and a trip into the Cascades has left me feeling “meh” about the Model Y as a legit winter car. For context, I grew up in Michigan (5 years in the U.P.) and lived/skied in Colorado for 7+ years, so plenty of snow driving. My other car is a Range Rover Sport, and the Model...

    Recommend holding off on 2021.36.8

    Did the upgrade yesterday. In addition to a few strange error messages, noticed the auto high beams and cruise control were both performing poorly. The auto beams were super delayed to the point where I had to do manually and the cruise control did phantom braking from opposing car headlights on...

    Kudos to Tesla Seattle - Free PPF

    My work calls ended early Friday, so I decided to head to Tesla Renton here in Seattle to return a charge adapter I bought (wrong 4 prong) and ask if they have any rear door PPF kits since they are sold out online. As the parts advisor is looking up my car (picked up early August) he says my...

    $1,000 to powdercoat a set of wheels?

    Hey folks - I stuck with the 19" Gemini wheels assuming I would just lose the covers, get the wheels powder coated gunmetal or black, and use these for winters and plus size to either 20" or 21" for a summer setup. After a few quotes from reputable wheel repair places in Seattle, $200-$250 per...

    Tesla Wall Charger Installed - Some Tips

    Got the Tesla wall charger installed at the cabin. Normally I would hire an electrician for anything beyond a light fixture install, but it is impossible to get any contractors to return a phone call let alone quote and complete a job in the Cascades right now. The good news is this is a pretty...

    Just picked up car - stupid newb questions to follow…

    Just picked up our red MYLR yesterday. There’s so many little, smart things about the car to like, but also a decent learning curve. Like how the heck do I set it up so AC only kicks on over a certain temp? Anyway, I’ll be diving into the manual over the weekend. I actually bought the wrong...
