    What does Tesla "black box" record and how long is it retained?

    Interesting read! They clearly retain a lot of info in real-time! I still wish there was a way of knowing if they retain for the life of the car or just on a rolling basis of some kind. And also, if they have info like car access methods and times etc... Guess we will need to wait for an...

    What does Tesla "black box" record and how long is it retained?

    Does anyone have any insight as to what kind of data the Tesla black box actually records and how long it retains it for? For example, does it save all the trip details forever or does it go away after a certain amount of time? Similarly, does it even record things like when the doors were...

    Holiday update - no boombox for me :(

    I thought that was strictly for when you are backing up, not when you are going forward. Does it work in both directions if you are going below a certain speed? That would be pretty damn annoying to have that ghost sound everytime you are in traffic.

    New Home Charging Setup

    240V because my electric dryer is off the garage so I can plug right in using the mobile connector. But since it needs to be newly hard-wired in either case I am considering both solutions.

    New Home Charging Setup

    I'm buying a house in Phoenix and the garage does not currently have 240V access. Labor-wise, is it a similar cost to freshly wire a 240v in the garage to the nearest electrical panel compared to installing a Tesla Charging Station? I'm trying to understand if the difference in cost would just...

    Holiday update - no boombox for me :(

    Did your service center actually confirm they would order? I just tried to setup an appointment for this and they responded this morning and said that it is not available for my car at this time.

    Car will not open

    This has happened to me and your first move after toggling bluetooth off and then on is to call Roadside Assistance. They will pair the card key with the car remotely and that usually fixes it.

    Sunken interior trim FIXED

    You can get a sense of it in this picture that shows it is sunken and not flush with the glass. It was like this 3/4 the way around the cabin.

    Sunken interior trim FIXED

    I took delivery of MY LR at beginning of July and my car had the sunken trim curse around 3/4 of the interior where it meets the glass roof. My service center finally ordered a replacement (two big pieces that combine into one) and popped it in and it is now FLAWLESS. I figured I'd post for...

    Model Y has auto dimming mirrors

    While I completely agree with your frustrations regarding this as a fellow early 2020 Model Y adopter, I think I could get behind this more if Tesla was rolling out substantial non-OTA upgrades to cars in the SAME model year. They have clearly cut over to the 2021 model and just like any other...

    Any Possible Model Y Update Info?

    So have we determined with certainty that those of us with earlier models can NOT have the service center swap out the single pane windows with the new laminated ones? Assuming the answer is NO but wanted to confirm.

    Any Possible Model Y Update Info?

    So any opinions on whether Estla Service will laugh you out of the center if you inquired about having some or all of these updates retroactively swapped into the older MY's?

    Any Possible Model Y Update Info?

    The video says that all VIN's 63,000 and above will get the changes. I'm not sure if that means all of the changes mentioned in the video or just the double pane windows.
  14. R

    Any Possible Model Y Update Info?

    This video mentions that there are 4 upgrades that are rolled out from VIN # 65, 1. Additional insulation in and around the doors and windows to cut down greatly on the in-cabin noise the MY is plagued with. 2. Double pane windows all around to dramatically help in keeping the cabin noise to a...

    Why is FSD not transferable to your next Tesla?

    I'm guessing there will be a minimum term for any monthly plan that gets rolled out. 6-month minimum term or something like that. I don't see them allowing such flexibility of using it a month here or there and dumping for all other months. They want predictable monthly recurring revenue, not...

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    I totally agree. There is ZERO downside to adding FSD to every CT order now and lock in the $8K when you know it will go up 25% in 5 days. Just remove it later if you feel so inclined.
  17. R

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    You may well be right. But I've also learned to never bet against Elon of TSLA.

    Why is FSD not transferable to your next Tesla?

    I don't think the monthly will be less than $300 and maybe more. *sigh*

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    You are right about the spectulation around the monthly fee and it's been discussed widely across forums and platforms. No one believes it will be $100/mo and likely much closer to what you were saying of $250 to $400 per month in which case, I agree that you'd own it outright for that monthly...

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    I thought the Teslarati story on the monthly subscription plan for FSD having said that on the earnings call they alluded to the fact that yes monthly subscription service will be here "sometime next year". I didn't see where it was said that it would be in Q1 of next year. My biggest hang-up...

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    I didn’t see the value in it when I got the car and it was $6k. I then was frustrated when a week after I took delivery the car depreciated $3k overnight as a result of the price being lowered. Then FSD jumped to $8k and I was even more frustrated but told myself we are a long way away from that...

    FSD up to $10k on October 29, 2020??

    I’m not clear how that is relevant. If it adds to the resale value of the car and actually results in it appreciating greatly over the next couple years, why does it matter if you won’t have the car super long term? Pass on the greatness and the price for it some time in the future.

    Elon just tweeted. Wow that’s quite a jump!

    Acceleration Boost Purchased

    But this is not a software upgrade right? It's hardware so any MY owners won't be able to ever take advantage of the 326 mile range short of getting a new MY in the future?

    Best Suspension replacement for the MY?

    Sorry if this has been asked and answered already, but for the MPP coilovers, do those lower the clearance in any way on an MY LR 19 inch tires? I want to confirm the lift will be equal to or slightly higher than where my car sits currently.

    Coil Overs and Warranty?

    Yes, that makes sense. But as far as the coil-overs needing to be repaired for some reason, will Tesla not do any work on it for free during the warranty period because they are aftermarket parts that need fixing? Lastly, I know in the past, every time I got a car appraised, I have always been...

    Coil Overs and Warranty?

    I've asked the same question multiple times as have others in other threads and no one has provided insight. What does installing these aftermarket products do to the Tesla warranty and how have people's personal experiences dealing with Service Centers after having these installed been...

    Mud flaps & Model Y

    I can definitely relate to the insane amount of dirty water and mud that splatters the car (backside mostly) in the slightest rain. Anxiously waiting for the Model Y mud flaps to become available.

    Post Delivery FSD and ultimate resale value

    thanks. Also, does anyone with FSD that has the Hardware 2.5, automatically get upgraded free of charge to hardware 3.0 when released?

    Post Delivery FSD and ultimate resale value

    I know that when you buy options before a VIN is issued and you take delivery, the VIN reflects all of those options, in particular FSD. Those that have purchased FSD AFTER taking delivery, where the VIN does not return the FSD upgrade if looked up, what does this do to the resale value, if...

    Things you might not know about your MY

    I found someone posted this on another forum and it has an incredible amount of stuff in it for most of us that don't read the damn manual. This covers things that span across multiple relevant sub-forums here but didn't want to post in multiple threads so here it is: Tesla Y Owner’s Manual...

    Coil Overs and Warranty?

    I am considering ordering this for the MY: Tesla Model Y Luxury Coilover Suspension Kit by Unplugged Performance I'm curious about what the experience is with the service center and overall warranty experience after this kind of an install. Does anyone have knowledge/experience with this?

    So who’s got Enhanced Autopilot?...let’s hear your feedback! Still deciding.

    September 30th came and went and Enhanced Autopilot is still offered. I can't say I am surprised at this tactic. It makes way more sense to keep this option available for the foreseeable future versus offering just as a late quarter push even though that was how it was being promoted.
  34. R

    So who’s got Enhanced Autopilot?...let’s hear your feedback! Still deciding.

    I'm also not convinced that this will be the one and only time they will offer EAP. Obviously, they released this to boost Q3 numbers and I don't see why they would permanently take this upgrade revenue path away. I can see them offering it again late Q4 or really any quarter in which they are...

    So who’s got Enhanced Autopilot?...let’s hear your feedback! Still deciding.

    I was tempted to pull the trigger and then they went and released the acceleration boost so I gotta pick my spots. Also, the rumors of having FSD offered as a monthly recurring add-on is really appealing to me. I'm going to hold out for that and hope I don't regret it down the line.

    $2000 Acceleration Boost for Model Y?

    Thank you for posting this! Very good numbers! I'm curious if you ran the same test before the upgrade? I'm curious what the numbers came out to at delivery vs. what the Tesla published numbers were. Thanks again for doing this and looking forward to more data.

    Best Suspension replacement for the MY?

    @UnpluggedP can you recommend a couple of shops in the Bay Area? I'm in Marin County but anything within a 50 mile radius will work. Thanks

    Best Suspension replacement for the MY?

    Where is UnpluggedP located? I am in the Bay Area and am taking a serious look at getting their MY package for $2,495 but does anyone know what installation will run you and if there are any reputable shops in Bay Area that have handled these yet?

    $2000 Acceleration Boost for Model Y?

    Got it, thank you for explaining that. Odd the app doesn't have an algorithm to simply adjust for that and normalize the "blended" results. It would be nice to have both of those measurements along with a third that adjusts accordingly.

    Tesla Insurance??

    I bought it and then had second thoughts the next day and cancelled. In the end, it was about 30 bucks cheaper per month vs USAA after losing the multiple policy discounts with USA which, after sleeping on it, isn’t enough to roll the dice with what a claims experience might look like. USAA...

    $2000 Acceleration Boost for Model Y?

    We are all anxiously awaiting the dragy results! I'm likely pulling the trigger on it but just want to see the bottom line on 0-60 new time. If it turns out this is closer to 3/4 of a second faster or more (very likely) then it is an absolute no-brainer.

    Initial impressions? Do you have one of these perhaps? https://www.amazon.com/Dragy-Performance-Bluetooth-MAPerformance-Lanyard/dp/B07JLY5CWN/

    Acceleration Boost Purchased

    Yes, this is important. Who has a dragy or other gps performance tracker that they can measure to before and after 0-60? I'm wondering how much faster than 1/2 a second it will come in at. Could definitely be closer to 4.0 seconds.

    Tesla Insurance??

    I was logged into my account today and noticed the Tesla Insurance option which caught my eye. For kicks, I entered coverage amounts and got a quote that turns out is insanely cheap to the point I am questioning all of it. I have USAA and pay around $1,600 per year with pretty solid coverage...

    Tint/Ceramic/Wheels/Calipers Painted/Badges Painted, oh MY!!

    I realize things cost more in NorCal but A full PPF wrap which includes paint correction and ceramic coating along with the full PPF is $8,000 out the door. Give their reputation in the industry I have to assume that is not an "unfair" albeit "very expensive" price tag. So of the $8K, just to...

    3D Maxpider Model Y Floor Mats

    I'm glad to hear that. When I read those instructions I got a bit concerned given the wording around how to "gently clean" them. Also, the instructions mention fastening the mats down with the grommets and while if I look at my driver's side mat, there are three metal things under neat, what on...

    3D Maxpider Model Y Floor Mats

    I received 5 piece set and I definitely dig them. Fit like a glove however the material is definitely not as "rubbery" as I was envisioning. I'm concerned that water/liquid can and will seep through if not cleaned up quickly. My other mats I could spray down with a power washer or any hose...
