    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Sure there is, the majority of the people in this world aren't as obsessed as the people on this forum. And their goal is to be a machine that gets cars out the door and profit in their pocket. So the less time per vehicle they need to spend the more money they make (at every step along the...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    That's not really a trim issue, its a door alignment issue. My MYP from Fremont came that way and they tried to tell me it was in spec, but after 20 min it was perfectly aligned. Maybe they need a better jig for when they re-attach the doors in GA but it's one of the more easily adjustable...

    Notice: Limited Deceleration

    As a software engineer myself, I imagine the original warning message was just put in by a software engineer, and some Product person came in and was like we have to make it clearer to new users. And then the engineer was like you don't realize they have time to read that s**** while driving...

    Notice: Limited Deceleration

    They basically updated the text they use for the Regen message to something more alarming. But you can still see it just means limited regen by looking for dots on the left side of the accelerator line at the top of the screen.

    Spotify - entering vehicle

    This is definitely a recent bug. It switches to Chose Media Source. But... I find that as long as the car has data (WiFi or Cellular) if I press the left scroll wheel it just switches back to Spotify and resumes playing. I've been successful with that 95% of the time. YMMV

    Vendor LDCRS Premium 3D (LOGO FREE) All Weather Floor Mats for Tesla Model Y 2023/2022/2021

    @ldcrsmode what I'd really love to see if a split cargo mat for the rear. I often travel with the cargo shelf from the tub stacked on top so that i have easy access to more storage, but everyone's cargo mats only cover the the whole area with a bend in the middle.

    Safety Score Gone

    It would when you have to rapidly turn the wheel because it only half commits to a turn. That would count as aggressive turning. There are plenty of times where FSD just bails out, gives out or requires immediate intervention in which you would definitely see your score drop either from having...

    Vendor LDCRS Premium 3D (LOGO FREE) All Weather Floor Mats for Tesla Model Y 2023/2022/2021

    Installed mine yesterday. I cannot believe how well they fit. It's seamless. Better than my supposed laser measured weather tech mats in my other car.

    Is the Austin / Fremont after April 7th MYP kept secret because it's brilliant or boring?

    I'm going with boring. I still don't think they're going to tell us anything special at the CyberRodeo other than maybe when they can start delivering cars. As I've speculated elsewhere, I don't think they're seeing the first gen 4680 batteries as useful in performance vehicles right now (hence...

    LOL yeah was just kidding, just usually how my luck goes. When I bought my Model 3 in 2018 after the 2 year wait 3 days later they opened up the order pool for the PERF and AWD cars and so I just naturally assume the same will happen with the Y.

    Partly Tesla does no real checking with data security when you call in you can give them a vin or reservation number and usually they'll just start talking to you. I often wonder the same thing about license plates which you know are always visible.

    Well that's all folks! See you around the other parts of the forum. VIN 3999XX, 9 miles on the clock. Detail was rushed but car was in great shape. The drivers door was misaligned but they fixed it in a half hour. I do have a slight rattle in the passenger front door, but i added it to the...

    I gave up hope on bold announcements after Elon gave the product roadmap update in January. If we're all waiting on specs on April 7th, it's not going to happen. There is no incentive for them to make any announcements. I don't even think we'll even see vehicle handovers as by now surely we'd...

    Stuck on old software

    Lol, I am a dev and yes, that make sense. I think this has been more prevalent since the chip shortage because Tesla has had to switch chips on the fly so the controllers and drivers are different on a week to week basis. But new stable features were probably only tested on legacy hardware so...

    For those of you who lowered your Tesla, did it affect your Autopilot?

    On my 3, I never had issues with AutoPilot behaving differently however, there were a couple times where I got locked out of autopilot because the speed and yaw sensors were returning unexpected values. SC attributed it to the car being lower but i don't know if they were full of it or not.

    Dilution of Performance Model?

    I mean I'm as big of a Tesla fanboy as the next, but if you think buying a Model Y Performance puts you in some sort of special club I think you're gonna have to spend another 20-30k. Model Ys are as ubiquitous as a Camry these days and the only people that would look at the car and be like oh...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    That's been my thought too, if we remember the Plaid+ was supposed to be 4680 originally as well. Maybe they just can't get to the performance they're looking for there quite yet in the first gen.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I thought about this after watching the Berlin vids. My thought is that Rest of World is being supplied by either MIC and MIG models so they are trying to be consistent for their market. Whereas Fremont and Austin will supply only North America where the MY door card change hasn't been...

    Trade-in Drama, should I just walk away?

    They were able to confirm a dent online enough to knock it down? Or you're saying they tried to say something on the day of? Because my last experience was them was once you were there they didn't care about the trade they almost forgot to take the keys.

    Model 3 Trade In

    If your EDD isn't until September I wouldn't worry about it as you have to renew your quote every 30 days. And then they just make up a number anyway. In the course of three months my quote swung $2500 and 2500 down. I'd say whatever you see for KBB Good is pretty much accurate.

    Trade-in Drama, should I just walk away?

    I think it really depends on the state. Carvana came back below 30k, and Vroom never gave me an automated number. Maybe my car is bad luck haha

    Trade-in Drama, should I just walk away?

    Yeah I agree with all of you so far no guess I’m just jaded. Like Tesla used to care and now I’m just a number. Which yay for progress but they didn’t have to abandon their values along the way. I feel like if it dropped by 300 dollars I’d be like yeah okay but it’s the huge range that bothers me.

    Trade-in Drama, should I just walk away?

    I'm angry. I feel like Tesla is supposed to make things simpler and they made it much worse. I guess this is a modified AITA post but here's where I'm at. Placed an order on 1/6 for an MYP They gave me a very reasonable trade in quote on my M3LR of $40,100. I accepted That quote expired in Feb...

    FS: MPP Model 3 Sports Coilovers RWD, Arastradero Rear Camber Arms and Blox Wheel spacers

    The VIN fairy granted me a Model Y VIN early so it's time to bid adieu to my 3. Looking to sell my suspension setup that's been great on my Model 3 LR. I believe this setup is compatible on all RWD so would work on an LR, MR, SR or SR+ but not the AWD, Performance versions. I've had these on the...

    Anyone with a 399 VIN can attest to it having all the goodies (I assume so) also I'm hoping it was a VIN from someone going on hold and not rejecting a VIN.

    They also have the old door panels. Still unclear why the Y hasn't switched over like it did in China and the 3 with the wrap around trim.

    Possible to view trade-in value when order is on hold?

    I had a little bit of an opposite experience. My trade expired while on hold, and it somehow seemed to cancel the hold. Then I updated my mileage and my offer dropped $5,000. Curious as they're raising prices across the board, I would have expected it to increase as it had when they raised FSD...

    Honestly, is it because you're in Hawaii, I imagine they want to have as many of those orders batched together as possible but if you have a different config than the rest that are being sent that way then it may just be a slotting thing. Either that or Elon actually hates you.

    Tesla Magic VIN

    So we're in the 400s now on MYs and we've been 4-5k vins per week. So it's only inevitable that we're about a month away from an MY vin of 420069. Will that car come with special Elon powers?

    Right but there's plenty of other threads about whether or not 4680s will do anything. There's still plenty of interesting news out of Austin.

    Interior door trim damage

    Not sure if the UK handles deliveries the same way, but in the US if you report something during the first 100 miles it's typically covered as something happened during shipping. Many SAs recommend opening up a ticket anyway so that the ticket is open and then being able to add to it up until...

    Built in Austin? Look for the "A" in VIN digit 11

    Not really that crazy. I once had an Audi S3 that had I had the VIN for and was sitting in port but was in a containment hold waiting for a certificate of conformity which is the exact certification we’re all waiting for. It very well could be that there’s is a wide EDD because the car is built...

    Sigh, it is actually stipulated in the Motor Vehicle Order Agreement (at least mine as of 1/6): As much as I hate it, I think it's fair, especially in this market. I put my order on hold recently and the longest they would do is 30 days. The policy does go on to state that you may be offered...

    So if you complete your delivery profile with a trade in, two things happen between now and EDD. One you increase the mileage on your trade in and two you decrease any outstanding loan balance (if you have one). My EDD is currently mid-march, but the current trade offer is valid until 2/2. I...

    20 inch Uberturbine wheels on Model Y + optional thicker 45 profile sidewall.

    If you update your wheel selection on the car to the 21" UberTurbines, I wonder if it would actually be close enough that the speedometer is the same.
