    Model Y SR factory installed hitch bike rack recommendations

    Sorry I missed this weeks ago. No problem with the shepards hook folded out. Have driven it for many weeks now and it doesn't bounce closer to the car at all. There is no way of affixing the hitch pin lock. No way. the pin itself is really simple to install and remove from the right side of...

    Model Y SR factory installed hitch bike rack recommendations

    There is a quick release safety pin (near the pivot), then an easy push handle release at the end of the rack to lower the bikes to be able to open the hatch. I haven’t tried yet. But I _think_ I might be able to open the hatch without lowering the rack if there is no bike in the #1 spot. (Ie...

    Model Y SR factory installed hitch bike rack recommendations

    I think I’ve found the best solution for the Y (&X) hitch capacity challenge for bike lovers. (cross posted in Model X bike rack thread) The Saris SuperClamp EX 4. The rack sits super close to the car and the bikes sit closer also and it weighs 30-40% less than other 4 bike platform...

    Is a 4-bike rack for Model X doable?

    Mine is a Y, but I think I’ve found the best solution for the X & Y hitch capacity challenge for bike lovers. The Saris SuperClamp EX 4. True rack sits super close to the car and the bikes sit closer also and it weighs 30-40% less than other 4 bike platform racks. Greatly reducing the torque...

    Is a 4-bike rack for Model X doable?

    Hi, Any updates on this setup since last year? Seems well in excess of the bizarre Tesla hitch specifications. But it inline with the Yakima HoldUp EVO 4 bike platform rack I already own and used with my X5. cheers

    Too funny. I traded a ZCP E90 M3 I drove for a decade and I’d say it reminds me of a mix between the comfort and mid EDC setting. Perhaps it’s softening. I picked mine up on the 27th Feb. loving it more each day.

    Happened to me too. Then the car arrived earlier than anticipated and the team at my Tesla centre were great and moved the delivery to the next morning for me. Happy camper - and no more BMW’s in my driveway

    No noteworthy issues. I think the drivers side window lowers a 1/8” more than the passenger side so I’ll have the service check that. But after all the worry it looks very good. I was hoping for the new console but would have been good with the classic. Bonus my iPhone 12 Pro Max chargers on...

    Some lucky persons MYP in Red at my local Tesla centre. I couldn’t see the VIN as the label wasn’t in the window. It as you can see has the new headlights (but not the new console). My Blue MYP was inside the service bay and I could only make out the rear through the window until I take...

    Range on Long Road Trips

    THIS. I think this is the most on point suggestion from my limited EV ownership experience to date (BMW i3). My ICE car (BMW M3) is a naturally aspirated V8 that is for an ICE car bad in the winter, losing about 25% of its range in the cold. She gets thirsty. But as we know a Canadian cold EV...

    My X5 was also one of my fav cars. Similarly to others here I’m attempting to find a balance between the utility of my X5 and some of the sporting characteristics of my long enjoyed BMW M3 sedan with the MYP. I know in the future when BMW or Range Rover release a compelling SUV EV with a tail...

    I am trading my 2011 E90 M3, and I returned my 2018 X5 last month, and had a 2017 i3. Same boat, but BMW taking too long to offer an EV with single car range for Canada.

    Mines the same as you (no FSD for me either). I guess they built these together. Weekend east coast deliveries

    Super fast turn around for you. My order is basically the same as yours and my vin also 124xxx and it hasn’t made it to the east coast just yet either. I bet yours is still wearing the shipping wrap and hasn’t been seen by anyone who didn’t built it or load it on to transport.

    I wish MY had soft close doors

    On what vehicle? On my 2018 X5 the doors just worked no matter if someone slammed them or pushed it almost closed and it finished the job.

    There doesn't seem to be a single VIN cut off. Colour configuration etc.. seem to play a part in a wide variation of VIN assignment during this transition. BTW my VIN doesn't show on my Tesla Account either - but my SA emailed it to me, so I could organize insurance ahead of delivery.

    Model Y SR factory installed hitch bike rack recommendations

    my point was the Model Y tongue weight OEM hitch has the same 350lb tongue weight as that aftermarket option. Regardless “Vertical load” isn’t a real thing in how Tesla are applying it in the manual. Actually by definition tongue weight IS the vertical force capacity at the hitch. Tesla are...

    This weekend my SA informed me my car was in Chicago (11-12 hour drive from Ottawa). Today a (week before delivery appointment) I was informed my car transport is delayed and my delivery date would be pushed 3 more days. That’s 10 days to make it from Chicago to Ottawa and be delivery...

    Model Y SR factory installed hitch bike rack recommendations

    4 bikes is 100lbs on the very light side, average around 125 lbs and trending upwards towards 150lbs. With the ~88 lb rack you are likely over 200lb which is significantly more than 160 Tesla rate as the “vertical load”. If you have a bike close to 50lbs I wouldn’t add a second

    Model Y SR factory installed hitch bike rack recommendations

    350lbs is the same tongue weight as the Model Y factory hitch.

    Model Y SR factory installed hitch bike rack recommendations

    There are a couple out there. North Shore Racks for example. Even lighter, and better priced. However I have come to really appreciate the Yakima foot pedal release to change angles etc... hence will keep my two bike platform for road and CX bikes. With me kids we all ride MTB bikes.

    Model Y SR factory installed hitch bike rack recommendations

    With the case of hitch mounted bike/storage racks the "vertical weight" figure is simply an attempt to simplify for mass consumption that there is a huge difference between the cantilevered force applied by a floating bike rack, and the direct tongue weight applied by a trailer for example...

    How does Tesla ship cars Fremont to East Coast USA?

    Yup. Mine emailed me today and told me he had “woken the car up and pinged the cars location” and sent me a screen cap of its location (Chicago).

    Doesn’t every manufacturer do that? Back in the day my M3 made it back from European Delivery to Ottawa Canada in April wearing its PS2’s and there is still snow in April here.

    Recent MYP Delivery Estimates

    My VIN took longer to get and is lower than you and others waiting for delivery in the next ~week. (1241xx). Perhaps because of time to ship to East (and Canada) as discussed elsewhere. I’m mentally preparing myself to receive one of the last ‘classic’ MYP’s.

    VIN Timing & Production Cycle

    this is new to me. I hadn't heard about that happening to forum members in the past month I've been following closely. But the dates did jump around for me a lot. There are discussions here that they seem to build MYPs in batches, and judging by VIN assignments as you noted the LR MY's seem to...
