    5 seat vs 6 seat config...which has more front and 2nd row leg room?

    Just like the subject says, which Model X seating configuration has more leg room in the front and 2nd row (I don't care about the 3rd row)? If the 2nd row in the 6 seat config can be moved back to the point where the 3rd row has 0 leg space, I'm fine with that. I just need whatever config...

    Change log for X Plaid '21 vs '22 vs '23?

    Hi, I'm in the market for a Plaid X. Does anyone know of a change log over the years (I know they don't go by model years, but by build date/vin)? For example, I know in the S changed their headlines/tail lights in 2/22 build date cars and the rotating screen in 5/22 cars. Is there anything...

    NYC insurance rates!

    Who is everyone using for insurance in NYC? My father-in-law lives in SI and is getting crazy high rates for his new Y. He asked me to see who has inexpensive insurance. He's got no points, no claims and no accident history.

    When do the 2023 Vins start showing up

    Okay, the showroom staff usually know less than people on this site. I'd take 11/15 with a grain of salt.

    When do the 2023 Vins start showing up

    Where did you get that date? Last year people were getting '21 vins in October....

    When do the 2023 Vins start showing up

    When do we expect the 2023 vins to start showing up? I think it's usually around mid to late September, right?

    New Solar & PW system not coming out of standby

    Once everything was in and approved it was only a few weeks for us. I think we were prioritized though because our project was almost two years old and a pretty large project (34kw and 8 PWs).

    Powerwall In Garage [what are the rules around this?]

    Just as a side note, I have 2 PW+ & 2 PW2s in my garage and they create a ton of heat. My garage is always in the upper 90's now when it was previously in the 70's. Just for some background, my house is a new construction with closed cell spray foam insulation so the only time the heat escapes...

    New 30% Solar tax credit

    Correct, you would have needed to get PTO 1/1/22 or later.

    Anyone have solar other than Tesla solar?

    I went with a "local" company that was highly rated in MD on my last house. I had 2 of my 3 SolarEdge inverters die and it took the 1-2 months each to replace them. Also, they supposedly "monitored" for system issues daily but I went weeks until I noticed there was an issue and called in...

    Using a Credit Card or Paypal to pay for TESLA Solar

    What is the best credit card to pay off your solar panels? Is there anything with more than 2%? I'm going to have to pay mine off soon.

    New 30% Solar tax credit

    I just had my solar/PWs installed. Do the PWs get 30% too or is the battery portion not being backdated? I've heard it both ways....

    Vendor Suma Blind Spot Mirrors

    Does anybody have a way to contact Suma? I've been long time customer (ordered 4 pairs) and when I upgraded to a '22 Y I broke one of the clips....I emailed Suma with no response on how to get a single replacement without buying both mirrors. In the past they responded quickly so I'm hoping...

    How do I charge my Model Y using only excess solar power?

    It seems like my ChargeHQ is not working as expected. I have a 34kw system with 8 PW2s, 3 of which are PW+s. I have not received PTO yet so I want to charge our Teslas when the PWs are full so my system doesn't shut down solar. While it does charge the cars, it will only charge them at a slow...

    How to run a 11.4kW system beyond the 7.7kW limit?

    I have the same issue. My 34kw system with 3 PW+ & 5 PWs are all clipping at 7.7 KW from around 9am-3:30pm. The installers said they would look into it and get back to me. I'm not holding my breath...

    Has anyone had a Powerwall Plus installed recently? I'm having MPPT issues....

    So they came out last Thursday to replace 2 of the 3 inverters and realized at that time that they needed to replace the third one as well (which they did this past Monday). They said there was a batch of Tesla inverters that were made recently that had an issue and they all had to be replaced...

    Has anyone had a Powerwall Plus installed recently? I'm having MPPT issues....

    I have a 34 KW system, I would hope there's more than five strings. He said there's five strings going into each Powerwall Plus. I'll ask for further clarification on Thursday unless they no show again.

    Has anyone had a Powerwall Plus installed recently? I'm having MPPT issues....

    I have 3 separate systems, each backing up one 200 amp panel so they don't have one controller. Sorry for not stating the setup in the OP. The installer told me there were 5 MPPT's and pointed to the ports and said only one of the 5 are working on each of the PW+s.

    New Solar & PW system not coming out of standby

    Just to update this, Tesla no showed on Tuesday (didn't call either). I eventually got them to have a 2nd tier engineer look at it and now they are replacing 2 of the three PW+ (even though all 3 have the same issue). We'll see if they show up on Thursday now...

    Has anyone had a Powerwall Plus installed recently? I'm having MPPT issues....

    I don't think it's a software issue because Tesla Energy has been so awful through the entire process (which is hard for a Tesla Fanboy like me to say). Now Tesla is coming out on Thursday to replace 2 of my 3 PW+ even though I have the same issue on all three. I asked them why they weren't...

    New Construction - Conduit prep for future panels and PW setup

    Just to give my experience with Tesla and building a new construction.... Tesla came out to my home 6 times while it was being built. On one of those visits they told our builder what type of conduit to use. My builder installed the conduit where they said to (using the conduit they said to)...

    Has anyone had a Powerwall Plus installed recently? I'm having MPPT issues....

    I had a 35kw system installed in late June with 3 PW+. Each PW+ has 5 MPPTs that different strings attach to....only 1 MPPT on each of my PW+ is working, so I'm basically getting 20% production (it's actually 35-40% because of another issue). Tesla is saying it's a software issue on all PW+...

    New Solar & PW system not coming out of standby

    Just to update the thread, I'm still power cycling each PW+ every morning. Tesla is coming back out (for a second time) to look at it on Tuesday. They thought they fixed it when they were here on Tuesday but they did not.

    New Solar & PW system not coming out of standby

    My question is how long can it sit at 5% when it is shut down without being bricked? Who knows how long it will take Tesla to figure out this "software fix" which sounds like BS to me.

    Possible to charge Tesla (car) with excess solar generation?

    I was able to create an account with ChargeHQ on my Android after about the 10th try over several days. Does anyone notice any issues with their Tesla not going to sleep (and saving power)? I read in another thread it polls the car every minute, which I would think we keep it from sleeping...

    New Solar & PW system not coming out of standby

    Okay, so if I turn off the the inverters from the breakers, they come out of standby for the remainder of the day. One of the PW+ is still only producing .1kw though because of the MPPT issue which I'm guessing is going to take Tesla forever to find a fix for. Meanwhile the 3 PW's connect to...

    Possible to charge Tesla (car) with excess solar generation?

    Thanks, I tried using ChargeHQ just now but when I try to create an account it says "invalid entry" and doesn't specify where the invalid entry is. I've tried it several times and I keep getting the same message (on the Android App). It does sound like it will do what I want it to though.

    Possible to charge Tesla (car) with excess solar generation?

    I just had a 34KW Solar system with 3 PW+ and 5 PW2 installed. I can't export power to the grid until I get PTO which could be up to 90 days. Once my PW's are full, is there a way to have the excess power charge our Teslas, automatically adjusting the power to the car based on the amount of...

    New Solar & PW system not coming out of standby

    Do you just turn them off from the power button on PW2 or is there another way to turn off the inverters? Edit: I just turned off all the PW2 & PW+ for a couple minutes and that did nothing. I'm guessing there is another way to turn off the inverters....I'm just not sure what it is.

    New Solar & PW system not coming out of standby

    I had a 34KW Tesla solar system with 8 PW's installed this week and it was working when the installers left but the next day the system didn't come out of standby. One of the installers came out yesterday morning and was able to get it out of standby but it still wasn't working fully (on two of...

    What comes first: VIN or Trade-On Offer

    You can get a trade in offer pretty much as soon as you order the car (it will expire in 30 days or 1000 miles though). You usually don't get a vin until 1-3 weeks before arrival (depending where you are located). With resale values continuing to rise (and Tesla continuing to increase the new...

    P85D charge rates at superchargers V2 Vs V3

    I have a loaner P85D and I need to take a trip to NJ (about 250 miles each way) there and back in the same day. Will a V3 supercharger charge any faster than a V2? Max charge speed or charging curve....basically, I'm looking for total charging time, what will be faster (or is there no...

    Trading in higher value vehicle

    The last car I traded in was in April '22 and it was a 2020 YP with 8k miles and FSD. They gave me $70k. The one before that was the same specs except with 20k miles and they offered me $67,500.

    Any first hand experience with Tesla trade values with a low milage Tesla with extra purchased via the app?

    That's not really true. Having FSD adds value when you sell it/trade it in. You are accounting $0 for that. It's probably about $5k assuming the price stays at $12k.

    Trading in higher value vehicle

    I've traded in 8 Tesla's over the years and they have never low balled me. They have always been higher than all the Internet/locals were willing to pay.
  44. preilly44

    Any first hand experience with Tesla trade values with a low milage Tesla with extra purchased via the app?

    I sold my other 2020 YP with FSD and 18k miles in December for $67,500. Tesla offered $67k. The price of the car and FSD has gone up quite a bit since then though.

    Any first hand experience with Tesla trade values with a low milage Tesla with extra purchased via the app?

    Tesla definitely pays more for FSD. I traded in my 2020 YP with FSD for $70,300 a couple weeks ago. The car had 8.5k miles.
