    Why does Tesla suspension suck so bad?

    Understood. Would be great if air suspension was offered as an option for the MY.

    Why does Tesla suspension suck so bad?

    Pretty gutsy to purchase a car without test driving it. Can't rely on magazine/online/Reddit reviews. Ride quality is way too subjective.

    [CA] Personalized Plates

    Ordered my personalized plates in August 2021. Received a letter from my local DMV office that they were ready to pick up last week. So about an eight month wait.

    Bad XPEL Installation?

    Wow, that looks terrible. Hopefully you can get a refund and take your car to a different shop. Need to make sure the shop you choose has skilled installers and stand behind their work.

    I've noticed this issue as well with the v11 software rollout. Hopefully will be addressed in a future update. Actually curious if newer Model Ys with the AMD processor are experiencing any lag.

    Endless search for a MagSafe phone mount is over?

    FYI, I have the Spigen and it doesn't block the front view or get in the way of the gear stock. I originally bought a Topfit mount but returned it since the phone was sitting too high when installed on the driver's side. The Spigen mounting position is much better...but definitely wish it had...

    Tesla's amateurish service lives up to its bad reputation

    This is spot on. Back in 2016 when I got my Model S, I always got a Tesla loaner during service visits. Those were the days…P90D S and X loaners that weren’t software restricted! Now with the influx of 3 and Y owners, there simply aren’t enough loaners. My local service center uses Enterprise...

    Model Y Performance headlights in a LR

    Just strange that the MYLR is the only variant of the M3 and MY missing the upgraded lights. The matrix headlight array is starting to appear in the Model S (albeit in foreign markets).

    Model Y Performance headlights in a LR

    Two years isn’t too long of a wait. But yeah, fair point about when this will be fully implemented. A shame, there’s so much great headlight technology from manufacturers like MB, Audi and BMW that we’re missing out on in the US...

    This is Tesla. No one knows. A new feature or improvement is always around the corner. People have been waiting for the MYLR to get the updated headlights since last Spring.

    Lets talk mud flaps, spot welded nuts and loose bolts (also why every Model Y owner needs mud flaps)

    2021 Y LR headlights

    Spigen OneTap Designed for Tesla MagSafe Car Mount

    New one is holding up ok. But still not 100% sure it can support the weight of my 13 Pro Max long term. We’ll see. On the plus side, there was no leftover residue from the adhesive. I like the mount overall. Had the Topfit mount previously but couldn’t place my phone on the driver’s side...

    Basenor Sunshade for Model Y - super helpful! Reduced temps 20 degrees!

    Please post some real life pictures of your product. Other manufacturers with the one piece design have resorted to using magnets to get rid of the middle sag or switched to a 2-piece design. Interested in how your product differs in design to eliminate the sag.
