    Can't schedule mobile appointment...?

    I just scheduled a new appointment a while later. Things got busy at my end so I put this on the back burner and by the time I checked again, the previous appointment was gone and the "Request Appointment" button was available again. Would it have been urgent, I would have just called the...

    Can't schedule mobile appointment...?

    They are not very far, a 30 min drive. They were helpful and most of my experiences with service centers have been very positive. I will just call them on Monday and see what they say.

    Can't schedule mobile appointment...?

    My phone is always in airplane mode when I'm at home, on WiFi (I don't have much use for a phone number, I can't even remember the last time anyone called me on the phone...). I only turn on cellular when I expect an SMS code for some website login. It never made a difference and location...

    Can't schedule mobile appointment...?

    I requested an appointment a while ago at a service center. They didn't have the part needed so they canceled it and told me they would schedule a mobile appointment instead once they received the part. I forgot all about it as I was traveling, and just checked today to find a mobile service...

    Max Volume iPhone Connected - Way too Loud!

    There is a workaround in this thread: iPhone "Max Volume bug" and fixes yet

    iPhone "Max Volume bug" and fixes yet

    I have the same problem and I just set my iPhone as @adayley suggested. Still have to see if it works - I wonder if it also works the other way around, i.e. now that I have the ringer volume turned way down, will it turn my audio volume down when I get a notification while music is playing? I...

    Model Y - noise reduction kit

    Oddly named brands that you have never heard of mean nothing. There are factories in China that jump on trends and churn out replicas of popular products in huge quantities, and there are layers and layers of resellers after them who do nothing but add their own branding (they order the product...

    Model Y - noise reduction kit

    Is the trunk seal supposed to make a difference? I got a "10 piece" kit with a trunk seal but I don't know if installing the trunk seal is worth the trouble.

    Model Y - noise reduction kit

    I don't have first hand experience with it but I heard good things about RPM's seals.

    Model Y - noise reduction kit

    This one: VXDAS Tesla Model 3 Car Door Seal Kit, Soundproof Rubber Seal Strip Kit Model 3 Accessories, Wind Noise Reduction, Dirt Reduction, Weather Protection : Amazon.de: Automotive . I installed the seals on the doors and frunk, and there was an instantly noticeable significant reduction of...

    Nokian R3 winter tires?

    Okay, so the 45 is the aspect ratio, so 55s won't fit...

    Nokian R3 winter tires?

    Hm, the only size I seem to find available is 255/55R19 111R. I used to know what all those numbers meant, but I forget... Last time I bought winter tires was 4 or 5 years ago...

    Nokian R3 winter tires?

    Thank you for the recommendation! I didn't know that these were not studded. Do these fit the original Gemini 19 rims of the MY LR?
  14. SilentFlight

    Model Y - noise reduction kit

    I know I am continuing an old thread here, but I just installed a noise reduction kit on my MY and it did make a noticeable difference in wind noise. The kit came with 2 things I haven't installed (yet) because I don't know if I need them. 1. The trunk (hatch) seals - do these make any...

    Nokian R3 winter tires?

    I never try to save money on winter tires - I always get the best based on review. Unfortunately, since I'm in Europe Hakkapeliittas are not legal here (studded tires are banned in most European countries). I still haven't gotten winter tires, but I will have to soon. Any other recommendation...

    Nokian R3 winter tires?

    I wish I could get the Hakkapeliitta 10 EV, but - unfortunately studded tires are not allowed in most European countries. It has been years since I had to buy winter tires, and with the MY I have to re-learn how to pick a good one, so I hope someone can help me out with some specific questions...

    Turn signal stalk sometimes does not seem to do anything?

    I think that these should be fixed by Tesla. Drivers shouldn't have to re-learn how to use the turn signal (like your "0.5 sec hold trick"). I have no problem relearning new and unique Tesla features. But the turn signal not behaving as expected is a safety issue that can confuse other drivers...

    Turn signal stalk sometimes does not seem to do anything?

    This happens to me too, and almost always with the left turn signal. I just had a service appointment today and told them about this and I actually managed to reproduce the issue with a Tesla service rep sitting next to me in the car. I pushed the stalk repeatedly, briefly to the left to...

    Trouble connecting to LTE - which provider?

    Update: I had a service appointment (had some rattles in the car - Tesla fixed everything, no questions asked, problems solved, no charge) and asked them about this issue. They checked the car and they said that despite the fact that it was sold in the Netherlands, it had a German SIM card...

    Plaid Safety

    That assumes that: 1. all roads are straight, and 2. you will never have to go from a left turn to a right turn or vice versa.

    Remote control when someone else is driving

    I guess there are more experiments to be done here... of course, for science

    Tesla is an AWFUL software company

    I see. I think the human mind has a tendency to focus on what upsets (e.g. annoys) it. It's really counterintuitive but the more we don't like something the more we tend to focus on it. This is how we guarantee our own misery. :) If nothing bothers you but suddenly a bee stings your elbow, all...

    Tesla is an AWFUL software company

    Of course, there are a lot of things in it that aren't perfect. But I honestly don't understand when people say the visualizations are "distracting". No one is forcing anyone to look at them. You will only notice those things if you, using your will that controls your eyes to move them in the...

    Plaid Safety

    That wouldn't surprise me at all. I encounter so many situations that AP can't deal with, but never mind that, I can't even imagine how it would. For example, if there is a construction or bottleneck in a road with no controls and clear rules (i.e. no direction clearly has the right of way)...

    iOS 15 - phone key keeps disconnecting

    Even though completely off topic, thank you for sharing this! I had no idea this setting existed but with my previous car, it was quite annoying that my iPhone I usually play music audiobooks from on long trips kept turning down the volume, telling me something about the headphone volume...

    AP wants me to switch to left lane "to follow route" on empty freeway...?

    That definitely makes sense. What doesn't though, is that if that's the reason, why does the screen tell me to change lanes "to follow route"? This has nothing to do with following the route.
  27. SilentFlight

    AP wants me to switch to left lane "to follow route" on empty freeway...?

    Yeah, I also noticed that AP drives a bit like a grandma who changes to the lane where she'll need to be... 10 minutes from now.

    AP wants me to switch to left lane "to follow route" on empty freeway...?

    In that case, is there a place to report these to Tesla so they can be fixed?

    iOS 15 - phone key keeps disconnecting

    Well... today, about 15 minutes after I parked the car and then went back to it to get something from the trunk, the car asked me for the key card. I opened the app (which usually solves this - when I start the app, Phone key starts working again). But this time, I was welcomed by the login...

    AP wants me to switch to left lane "to follow route" on empty freeway...?

    Driving on AP on an empty stretch of freeway today, my MY surprised me with this: - No other cars in front or behind me - Next turn is a freeway exit to the right 4.6 km away (was about 6 when this started) - Absolutely no reason that I can see to change lanes - definitely not necessary to...

    Cancelled my order today

    I love one pedal driving. I hardly ever use the breaks - mostly in unexpected or emergency situations only. And the "hold" setting is great. It's just so damn convenient. Before I got the car I thought I would just leave it on creep, as that's what I was used to - but it took about 30 seconds to...

    Tesla is an AWFUL software company

    I actually haven't seen anyone attacking you. You seem to mistake people disagreeing with you for a personal attack or some kind of cult membership. If someone doesn't agree with you, something is obviously wrong with them, right? Is there any chance that people can disagree without one of them...

    Tesla is an AWFUL software company

    I thought that was a good analogy, and funny as well :) And I think the discussion would be more pleasant if you refrained from trying to insult people in your replies. That doesn't add anything to the discussion, the only person who is interested in them is you - and this is a community, so...

    iOS 15 - phone key keeps disconnecting

    I have been using Bluetooth accessories forever (started with dongles way before Bluetooth became mainstream) and my observation spanning many, many generations of Bluetooth on all kinds of devices using various operating systems, hardware, software, etc. is that Bluetooth as a technology has...

    Tesla is an AWFUL software company

    And if someone stole your charging adapter at a public charging station from your automatically unlocked charging port, you would call Tesla AWFUL for that.

    Where are the door handles...? 😳

    Maybe you missed the scenario my original post was about: "every time I try to get into the car in a dark place at night..."

    iOS 15 - phone key keeps disconnecting

    I found that if the phone key doesn't work, if I open the Tesla app, everything starts working again.
  38. SilentFlight

    Where are the door handles...? 😳

    Oh, that makes sense. Except for the part when my phone battery is dead... so I call my girlfriend to help me out 🤪 Reminds me of the IT department instructions: If your email isn't working, send us an email at [email protected] and we will look into it.

    Can we talk about rattles & noises, and them not being covered under warranty?

    Possible... since it only comes on when I drive on rough pavement, I didn't have many chances to look for the source. I will try to check on my next drive.
  40. SilentFlight

    Can we talk about rattles & noises, and them not being covered under warranty?

    I have a rather annoying (and loud) rattle in my six weeks old MY that sometimes comes one when I drive on rough surfaces. I will book an appointment... hope it will be fixed. It seems to be coming from the driver side door. Has anyone experienced the same...
  41. SilentFlight

    Where are the door handles...? 😳

    I see. How is that different from the phone key? It sounds like this is exactly what phone key does, without having to tap a button in the app.

    Sending a destination with no address to Tesla

    Yes, I tried Apple Maps too. However, the URL Apple Maps sends includes quite some data, depending on what's the location you are sharing. It seems to always include the address. I specifically tried locations in the middle of nowhere, and that sends both coordinates and the nearest known...

    Destination to Tesla app: "Sent to 0085322"

    I changed the name of the car and my iPhone still shows "Sent to 0085322". Maybe a difference between the China vs US made MYs...?
  44. SilentFlight

    Where are the door handles...? 😳

    Start...? I see it in the app but never used it. What does it do? I don't think it would start the engine 😂
  45. SilentFlight

    Sending a destination with no address to Tesla

    Thank you - I tried it. I get a "No results found for this search" on the car. This whole setup is strange indeed. I don't understand why it wouldn't accept a Google Maps link, but accept the goo.gl short link that redirects to the very same URL...

    Blog Musk Says Cyberquad Will Be ‘Least Dangerous ATV’

    Actually, the claim/feature that it will be hard to roll over will probably result in some people trying harder, doing things with it that they wouldn't try with other ATVs.
  47. SilentFlight

    Who is driving...?

    Of course. But that would defeat the purpose of having the phone key set up for the other driver - I'm not sure if my girlfriend would like that :) I don't even like the idea myself. She may drive less but why should she not be able to use her phone key?

    Destination to Tesla app: "Sent to 0085322"

    When I send a destination to the Tesla from Google or Apple Maps, it is confirmed with a popup that says "Sent to 0085322". What is that number and why doesn't it use the name of the car (which I left at the factory setting, so it's just called "Model Y")?
  49. SilentFlight

    Sending a destination with no address to Tesla

    That's unfortunate. I guess we will have to see what other format can be sent to the Tesla app that covers non-address destinations (coordinates only).
  50. SilentFlight

    Speed traps...

    I will try it out on my next drive with my girlfriend... one phone with Waze on, but no destination, and the other one with the destination entered.
