    Florida Waiting Room

    Nice.... I may go for a LR for a second MY. I need to see if I qualify for the tax credit this year . I may need to marry someone then divorce them with a prenup so I don't loose either.

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    Yea, lets see how many hoops it takes to get there. They want me to have an electriction verify it isn't a wireing issue (which was done). Then They wanted the wall unit serial and the car vin so they could match any alerts , They wanted pictures inside the charge port of the tesla, inside the...

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    I had my electrician come out in oct to verify the connections . Cost me $125 to have them tell me everything was fine, nothing was loose. I hadn't had any issues the week before they came and I haveen't had any since until tonight . Two times plugging in the Charger immediatly starting...

    2022 MYP range estimate with 19” Martian wheels?

    I have not done this yet , Idecided I would not sell the 21's when I get the 19's so I was going to wait a year before I invest anything else in the car . Now you can let me know how your range has changed ;) May need to wait for the summer for some real comparisons

    Gen 3 Wall Connector 3 red blinks fault code

    I just had this happen to my Gen3 The first time it started blinking red as soon as it was plugged in. The second time was last night and the car charged from 30% to 75% and completed charging at 10pm . In the morining the charger was blinking and the error in the unit stated that the...

    2022 Model Y - USB Data Ports - USB-A Glovebox Only

    I took Delivery on 6/4 . I went the Tparts route and ordered their gaming package with the wireless conrollers Just got it today. I lucked out that all I needed was to swap out that one USB unit, with their included tool I was up and running in 5 minutes. So far so good... everything working well

    This was also announced on Fox Business so it seems legit

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Not for the ones in the MY , there are people who have purchased some of them from Munro and will be running tests on them so we are likely a month or more away from any results

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I don't know whats in there now... At the end of the Video Cory says that they need to remove all the batteries , all 600 of them.... Here are the Time stamps for the 2 quotes ( transcrips are a bit wonky so better to listen to them

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Not to mention that the first CT's are suppose to be the 500 mile versions which puts even more strain on the 4680's. I will say that I will not buy another EV with 300 mile range . I knew the tesla range was BS before I purchased the MY and depending who is driving we get between 70% and 75%...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Here is some speculation using the #'s from Munro and the battery capacity from the breakdown. which puts the 4680 pack at 80KW.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Looks like Munro is counting 816 4680's

    2022 Y Long Range- Matrix headlights?

    The clearer reference was for identifying them as matrix over the reflectors, thats the easiest way. Besides the ability tocontrol where the light goes I am not aware of what the lights are made of or other special functions
  15. C

    2022 Y Long Range- Matrix headlights?

    The glass is much clearer. and if you are still in doubt you can do the light show. The light show with Matrix lights will spell out TESLA and the non-matrix will not.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    That 4680 dissassembly pretty much explained that extra weight was coming from the 4680 housing . They expect the thickness to reduce eventually but as of now they couldn't bend that stainless around the battery by hand even after it was straightened . Still odd silance from Munroe...

    I remember reading through some threads about it where they stopped adding Matrix lights to all but theM3 Performance starting in Q2

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    nope... I was making a joke about the Matrix movie and people being batteries.. guess it wasn't as obvious as I had thought.... BTW... yesterday was the last day to order a Tesla with free lifetime standard connectivity (navigation) it is still free for 8 years which should cover the car for...

    My $250 deposit [why can I not get my deposit back?]

    and even though the contract says you may be responsibile fore the destination fee it doesn't happen because demand is so high. The only time you would ever be on the hook for the destination fee is if they shipped the car to your SC then you cancelled your order. Then if there was no one else...

    They may be using them, I have not heard anything definitive. I thought you were looking for differences you could see.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    The only differences I've heard so far are rear trunk covers and the magnetic arm rests.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    The thing to note here is that Tesla has not opened up the MY AWD 4680 for order . You order a MYLR and then they may give you an opportunity to get an AWD earlier (While supplies last) . My guess is that the current AWD is an temp solution to use the current 4680 battery production as it is...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    They did say the 4 motor 500 mile version would be first but if their batteries aren't ready they will need to put something out with less range and less efficiency and it may be easier to push out the 1 or 2 motor varients until the batteries are ready.
  26. C

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I don't think it will slip but what they make first may change. So instead of the 500 mile , 4 motor 4 wheel stearing version you may only see 250 mile single motor version.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I like a clean car inside but I never washed or waxed my last two cars. I drove the one for 15 years until it died and the paint was bleached off half the car. My other is 6 years old , my brother does wash that one since he drives it. I have a lift in my garage so I did any mechanical and...

    This is the exact thinking that stopped me from putting XPEL on my Y :)

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Actually thats not true... go and try to find a new 53 KW roadster battery... You can get a new 80KW upgrade because they are using a compatible pack (released in 2014 as the 3.0 upgrade) By default Tesla has an 8 yr battery warranty and by law they need to provide I believe its 6 (down...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Are you trying to say that Tesla is going to continue to make battery packs for all of the cars it has ever produced for the next 20 years? Now thats Speculation
  32. C

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    You know... This is one of those things which will cause many people to rethink purchasing an EV. Not so muc the repairability but the ability to get a new battery pack . You can get a used ICE car thats 100 years old and get it on the road , they all have different motors but they all run...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    That cover is destroyed , they would need to replace the foam and have a new top to the cover that can be tack welded between the batteries back to the origional pack, there is just no way that will be done.
  36. C

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    I have seen some of the Rich rebuilds where he was replacing modules in the battery packs to fix them for a great savings over new. Opening the packs didn't destroy the covers . I am not surprised by the foam. but those tac welds kind of put the nail in trying to reuse it. You can tell they...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    It looks like your screwed if 4680 cells go bad. There is no fixing a Structural pack, all you can do is replace it.
  38. C

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    No company is going to ask an someone who bought a vehicle in the wild to be quiet about anything. Munro doesn't work for Tesla, this is no NDA situation. If the Batteries are not as efficient as they were touting on battery day the pack could very well be full, nothing mystical about it just...
  39. C

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    We still don't know how many cells are inside that pack and we don't know how much is being held back . We are assuming its the same as what we saw in a cutaway but we really don't know so hopefully we get some real numbers in the next video.

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Tesla lowered the price of my tradein almost every 2 months while I waited for delivery. The price they quote you is at the time of the Quote a. They have you update mileage every couple month and then they will re-evaluate the quote and then they will give a final quote before delivery. So the...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    ???? ANy damaged caused by Tesla should be fixed by tesla and any dameage caused during transport is paid by the transport company or teslas own insurance so in the end it shouldnt cost tesla a dime to ensure that customer deliveries arrive in great condition, The Problem is that they are...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Its the exact cover that was on the Scion TC. It will mask whatever you have in your trunk so theives can't see it or reach into it if they smash the side windows.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Tesla was pretty clear that they would be producing 2170 MYLR & P at Austin similar to Fremont and Germany. The 4680, processor and Matrix lights rumors did not come from them. The only thing unexpected was the addition of the rear shelf. EDIT: I hust realized that this is the EOQ push so...

    Yup... Not matrix you can see the difference in the first pic and the 2nd in the austin LR.

    Enhanced Autopilot back

    Currently EAP is half the value of FSD. I believe you will end up paying half of whatever the cost of FSD is at the time . Today you would pay 6K. If FSD goes to 14K it would cost you 7K to upgrade to FSD but they can always do something different. Personally I still don't see the value in...

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Eventually Austin is going to take over a portion of the deliveries to the east coast and they are the only ones making the AWD so it makes sense that Fremont will start to produce some AWD models for delivery to the west coast using the batteires at Kato Road or another source. So I think they...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I would say you should have less alignment issues initally from fremont ( unless they changed to a better process) but the Austin plant has the new paint booth so the quality of the paint job should be much better in Austin

    Florida Waiting Room

    My car came with a charging cable but I had a wall connector installed 7 months before I got my car. I think having a car charging kit is essencial even if you never need to use it . Its the same way I feel about a spare tire . If my walll charger ever has an issue or is damaged I can still...

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I'm sure there will be an AB for the AWD but they likely forgot about it and the LR option carried over by accident which is why it was removed.. It will likely show up again with different increases.
