    A second Model Y for the baby?

    We are expecting our daughter to arrive this week, so I couldn't resist getting her a Model Y of her own! 😁

    Steering wheel is shaking on auto-park.

    This was the first time I had used the auto-park, so I felt safe enough since I had my foot hovering over the brake while I monitored the slow-moving progress. The jerkiness seems to be just a momentary *removal* of torque on the wheel - which then looks extreme since the wheel wants to snap...

    Steering wheel is shaking on auto-park.

    Mine did this yesterday while parallel parking - but it still parked the car just fine 🤷🏻‍♂️

    Did your MY delivered with rocker PPF?

    My MYP rolled off the transport without it, but the Columbus SC installed it before I took delivery. It seems to be based on location, with some observations that northern states seem to be getting the PPF and mud flaps are perhaps more likely in Canada?

    How long before delivery did you install wall charger ?

    I installed my wall charger once it arrived, and I had ordered it right after placing my MYP order. I didn't feel rushed to get it installed since the car wasn't sitting here waiting on it yet. It was really nice having it in place before the car arrived so I could charge at home right away...

    What name did you give your new Model Y?

    Johnny 5 We watched Short Circuit tonight as a family so my teen daughter will understand the reference. She approves.

    Are VIN's assigned at night?

    Mine appeared just minutes after midnight.

    Does a MYP come with the home link?

    Model S and X come with it standard, but for Model 3 and Y it is an optional add on: Model 3/Y Automatic Garage Opener I ordered mine when I ordered the car. I'm scheduled for installation on Friday.

    SCREEN ANIMATION

    Yes, this is normal. Every car we test drove and my new MYP all do this as part of normal operation.

    Rear PPF now included on Model Y from factory?

    Mine arrived at the Columbus SC without PPF on Wednesday, and then they installed PPF before I picked up today.

    It sure was, but it was also exciting to see that it arrived safe and appears to be of excellent build quality. It would have been even worse if I had been driving the car I'll be trading in toward it - but I was driving my wife's car and physically couldn't have gotten my trade-in there before...

    Some deliveries in northern states have been coming with the PPF accessory pre-installed (the kit that Tesla sells for the rear fenders). The SA I spoke with tonight confirms that mine will have that applied tomorrow before I pick up on Friday 👍🏻

    Wall charger help

    The Tesla wall charger does not plug in to an outlet. It is designed to be hard-wired into a dedicated circuit. I would recommend looking into hiring a professional electrician to do this work, especially since this wasn't apparent to you from Tesla's installation instructions: Home Charging...

    This might be a VIN assigned from the factory. My page shows "Estimated Delivery: June 02 - June 04" - so maybe it's not at the Columbus SC yet? 🤔

    RNs would likely be random specifically to avoid what's happening here: people inferring order date and/or order count from the sequence of numbers.
