    Auto park curbed my rims!

    I have the 2" wheels, and they stick out past the tires. I also curbed mine :(

    Model Y VIN ending in 01xx...ok to take delivery ?

    Mine is supposed to be here within 12 minutes... not holding my breath, but it's great to hear that the low VINs are just fine. Mine is a 0024XX VIN, and I'm a little nervous about that range based on some other Y's with issues that I've seen posted here. Finger crossed!

    Northern Virginia Model Y started

    Yep - Tyco did the double sided tape thing when I picked up my Model 3 2 years ago. It’s a really great shop and they’ll treat you fine... especially if you’re cool with them. FWIW, I’ve seen a few self-important Tesla owners act like jerk to Tesla staff, and heard incredible stories about...

    Interesting... I just got the call today, and car is being dropped off from TyCo tomorrow, assuming my bank can print the check for pickup in time. FYSA, y'all... I was a day 1 reserve holder, but changed my wheels to the 20 inches just yesterday... and got the call today! Good luck and...

    I didn't see one, but there could have been one hiding. Peering into the big dark garage with several dozens of different models, I counted 5, but I couldn't see their wheels.

    Northern Virginia Model Y started

    Out of curiosity, I popped by Tyco today. w00t - I spotted 9 Model Ys, and there may have been more that I couldn't see in the garage. I saw some blue, white and one Midnight Silver Metallic, and there were a variety of performance and AWD in each color. I snapped a few pics of the config...

    How’s the sound system in Model Y?

    It would also add an awkward weight to the hatch. Also, it's be near impossible to tune it in that enclosure.

    It just occurred to me that the speakers in the hatch would make for awesome tailgating music!

    3/Y size comparison (gif)

    Was just about to click thumbs-down, because I feel differently, but hey, we all have different opinions. I wish they’d rename it something other than “disagree” , because I can’t disagree that you think what you think :)

    When will Tesla offer in-car review of Sentry Cam footage?

    Excellent advice, of course. I'd doubt that VOIPNinja isn't "doin' it right", as they say, what with his avatar's name and all ;)

    EAP and FSD: how and when will their paths diverge.

    The paid upgrade to FSD includes the HW3 board for HW2.5 cars.

    Anyone planning to lift the Y, add big tires?

    I’m concerned about the speedometer offset and it’s impact on autopilot and with range calculations. I wouldn’t do it to a daily driver at all.

    Trunk separator?

    Me too. My 70 pound Mesa Boogie guitar amp would slide around the carpeted area in the trunk, but not with that mat in place.

    Red Model Y at shareholder's meeting

    Not picking on you at all @glide, but I wish folks would just call it "black trim" instead of chrome-delete. No one ever the standard trim on all the Corollas and Ford Fusions out there"chrome-delete" ... ;) Jus'sayin

    Meh.. you can ride the volatility both ways. I don’t have the stomach to short, and there’s nothing wrong with it. That said, I too despise the notion of FUDster manipulation.

    Tesla On Autopilot Slams Into Stalled Car

    I generally agree with you. While I certainly don't know the ins and outs of how Tesla magic works, multi-layer neural networks nowhere near as simple as you've suggested. There aren't that many specs on their neural network at all, aren't Training them results in multitudes of weightings...

    Tesla On Autopilot Slams Into Stalled Car

    I immediately thought there was something fishy about this guy, and some quick googling confirmed it. From his Forbes bio: " Author of over 30 books..." But only one book on Amazon? https://www.amazon.com/Lance-B.-Eliot/e/B001KCRU8M?ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_hsch_vu00_taft_p1_i0

    Tesla On Autopilot Slams Into Stalled Car

    I couldn't agree more! "...Tesla ought to be using LIDAR, a mash-up of light and radar that is a sensory device..." - huh? No, it's not. "There is also a chance that the human driver might have assumed that the Autopilot was going to aid in the driving...". No, not according to the article...

    Tesla Model Y goes on display outside of its Fremont seat factory

    Tesla Model Y goes on display outside of its Fremont seat factory

    I would LOVE if someone could try to figure out the exact height of the Model 3 next time it's caught on camera. I'm fixated on how determining how tall it is - I've seen estimates ranging from 4" to 8" taller than the Model Y, and not knowing is driving me nuts! I'd love some information with...

    Whoa! Come on tesla!

    True - but the vector here would be to spoof Tesla's service endpoints that the app talks too and use a MITM proxy. Luckily, all this is mitigated by a lot of clever handshaking between the App, Tesla's services, and the car. (see this: I decompiled the Tesla Android app and poked around a bit...

    How good is RWD in the winter

    Yep - it's the law in Quebec (expat Quebecer here!). @Samnas76 - I think you're fine with RWD, but voted for AWD just for the fun factor! I used to have an old stick-shift RWD BMW 320i - it was so much fun to drive in Quebec and Ontario in the snow. The LR Model 3 is that times 10, and 10...

    Possible safety issue with Model 3 for tall people

    Is this really an issue given that the airbags would deploy?

    2019.8.3 — still no range boost?

    AFAICT from the release notes, 2019.8.5 provides the range boost along with the power boost in the release notes.

    Model 3 Software Update 2019.9.x

    When I had my headlight replaced via mobile service, the tech told me that the only way they calibrate the turn-signal blinker speed was by pushing an update, and they specifically did *not* update the car first because they'd just have to do it again. Sounded wonky to be, but I watched them...

    Lets hope Tesla doesn't go bankrupt with 35K model 3

    With respect to margins, shutting down facilities and layoffs always amount to one-time write-downs that will hurt profitability short term. I'm betting (i.e., go TSLA!) that the following quarter will show huge upticks without all the overhead of the stores and an optimized sales and delivery...

    Tesla Model 3 Performance value at CarMax - appraisal lower than expected!

    Extended warranty? I can't believe it. What did he just say?

    I'm confused. If I understand correctly, you are currently in-warranty, and you've spent over $5800 on service - which to me implies that these services would not be covered by an extended warranty either. So are you planning to spend money on service as well as for the extended warranty...
