    Why CarPlay?

    What are you all using voice commands for? I found it to work like garbage. “Fold side mirrors” turns into “old side mirrors”. Only one letter off. System is too stupid to map that to a real command.

    MYP driving in the sand

    Wondering how the MYP does in the sand? I'd like to drive it to a house in outer banks NC that requires a few miles of beach. There are tons of cars on this beach, though mostly pickups, jeeps and the occasional CUV or Subaru. I found some successes, and some fails on YouTube. Does anyone have...

    Time to DIY PPF!!

    Yup. But I enjoy this kind of thing, saved maybe $35 and have extra PPF now. Here’s my door panel template for MY

    Time to DIY PPF!!

    It is hard, due to the shape of the gradual curve on the door edge. The difficulty is not the cut, but getting the right size and shape templated. I used a Cricut to do my cutting. I produced a vector template, cut it into a roll of parchment paper to check fit. It took about 5 iterations, then...

    Sentry Mode battery usage 7% per day

    It blows my mind that such a feature could use so much power but I get about the same. I'm assuming that this is because a much larger-than-necessary computer is running to handle inputs from numerous cameras/sensors, and is probably poorly optimized for that type of work. 7% is, after all...

    Mobile Charger no longer included

    This is just a sneaky way to increase the car's price by $400. Newcomers who haven't been following the price/package may not notice or care much. It's the primary way I charge at home and I consider it a must-have accessory. It's useful when traveling to family/friends or to airbnbs, often in...

    Time to DIY PPF!!

    I did my own door PPF, and since I had a Cricut, I just bought the PPF as a roll and then created my own templates and had it cut them out. All in it took a couple hours, mostly for perfecting the template, but cost was around $20 and I have plenty of extra material for more PPFing. For anyone...

    2021 MYP Trunk Leak - bad service experiences

    I have this leak too. I noticed the water in the trim but since it was bordering interior/exterior I wasn't totally sure it was a problem. Last night it rained hard while I had my car out. Today, ~18h later I went to the garage and opened the trunk. As it tilted upwards I heard a ton of water...

    Why CarPlay?

    So many reasons: Tesla navigation is lagging far behind Apple Maps (yes Apple Maps) with its robotic voice and failure to give input at crucial moments. For example, Apple Maps would say something like "Take the exit, then stay in the left two lanes" or "Go past this light, then make a right."...

    Rivian range to charge time is going to be an issue.

    Taycan is impressive on the range and charge speed but also has a small battery and good aero. I was going to say weight is probably lower than comparable Teslas, but holy f that thing is heavy. CT may likely be the same situation. I read somewhere that the polarizing looks were to help...

    Rivian range to charge time is going to be an issue.

    I was referring to their own network, but you're right there is something... But based on what I've seen in the wild and on plugshare (while intentionally looking into this), the L3s are too few, too sparse, and not ideally located. Not to mention the horrid UX of having to have 3+ different...

    Rivian range to charge time is going to be an issue.

    I hope Rivian can succeed in the long-term because the truck looks great, but it is going to have a big issue with range. It's a truck and is shaped like a truck (a brick). It is expectedly heavy and I have to assume the aerodynamics are horrible. The efficiency seems to back that up, with a...

    Moronic placement of backup cam in V11

    I hate the placement. Too low and takes my eyes completely off the road. Second issue, when using the 3 sec lane change blinker, the 1s delay to load the camera feed leaves just 2 seconds for a glance. Not long enough to really see what is going on. Third issue is that it's much harder to gauge...

    How are you liking update 2021.44.25.2?

    Yeah this got more annoying. Tap the center of the map to show the controls, including the compass.

    How are you liking update 2021.44.25.2?

    Thats a different thing. I'm talking about while you have a route, to see chargers along your route. This used to be the button that the POI button now occupies. I did manage to get it by going to ... > add stop > charging. The feature has gotten a little more buried but not any better. It does...

    How are you liking update 2021.44.25.2?

    I found that … swipe menu card thing to be a bit of a weird UX. Kind of finicky to swipe between the cards. I think I actually prefer the new UI where the trip and tire data is 2 taps away.

    How are you liking update 2021.44.25.2?

    It seems that button is just gone, but I just found you can get the same overlay via the new …>add a stop>charging menu. IMO still a bad UI change since this is something I do while driving to select which stop to make (based on food or SC kw).

    No that’s gone. It is now satellite, traffic, businesses

    How are you liking update 2021.44.25.2?

    Two steps forward, one step back. Minor things have gone missing, like being able to see supercharger stops during a route. The quick controls on the other hand seem better. The customizable "app" menu is nice but the icons remind me of a shitty android phone. We got a couple great improvements...

    Laggy cameras

    Had a serious wtf moment when reversing in my Y and I nearly hit a pillar in my garage due to a lagging rearview camera. I mean holy *sugar*, it would be safer to not work at all. I'm reversing thinking I've got room and lo and behold I'm watching a video of two seconds ago with no room to spare...

    My understanding of the FSD option pricing structure

    Ah thank you. I thought there was some incentive to buying it up front.

    My understanding of the FSD option pricing structure

    Correct me if I am wrong.. but FSD can be purchased at point-of-sale for 10k which ties it to the car and is not transferrable, meaning the car has some increased value. I would love to understand the insurance implications there if the car is totaled. Alternatively, FSD can be an add-on later...

    Dead Screen after 2021.36.5.6

    Update: my computer was bricked and they swapped it out. It took about 24h. I asked how much outside warranty and he part is 1600.

    Help, touch screen dead away from home

    I drove it to the closest service center which was really dangerous. They found the computer to be dead and replaced it under warranty. Was told this is a 1600 dollar repair out of warranty.

    2021 Model Y static on center speaker

    I noticed a sound recently from around that area, kind of like a very high frequency static. I could hear it over my music/podcasts. Maybe it's the same as yours. Anyway my car is now in for service 2 days later with a bricked computer/screen. I hope it is unrelated. If they replace my computer...

    Dead Screen after 2021.36.5.6

    I’m on 2021.36.8 in a new MYP and just got a dead screen. I have the HEPA filter blocking my battery so I’m not even able to try pulling the 12v easily myself. Sounds like that might not even help. This car sucks. Currently ruining my thanksgiving and long weekend (road trip)

    Help, touch screen dead away from home

    Yeah tried that many times. Took it for a drive and found that it’s in “chill” mode. Now it’s plugged in and appears to be charging but still no screen.

    Help, touch screen dead away from home

    I’m far from home on a thanksgiving/weekend away and I tried to show my friend my new ‘21 MYP and of course the touchscreen won’t turn on. I tried rebooting a million times (I have done it before) and it’s not working. The car drives and I can lock/unlock with the app but the screen won’t turn...

    Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 on Uberturbines- 265/35 & 275/35R21

    I think they are both Michelin. True enough about stopping power/safety, but most cars are not running max performance tires. It would be less of a decision if we got normal wear out of them, but if I'm roasting a $1700 set of tires every 18k miles it an alternative. Anyhow, they don't come in...

    Y Performance - how to minimize tire costs?

    You cannot drive the summers on snow. Not even carefully, or "chancing" it. I had multiple horrifying experiences doing this. It's crazy that the car ships to cold areas with this as the only tire. Even on dry roads, with temperatures below ~40F you may find yourself sliding if you stop short...

    Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 on Uberturbines- 265/35 & 275/35R21

    I'm running the 265/275 setup from Walmart (they sent me the right ones) and at first they were noticeably louder but after 100 miles or so, seems about the same as the pzeros. I wonder about the cross climate. I saw them at Costco while I was having my set swapped, googled them. Seems like less...

    4x OEM TPMS for '21 MY

    SOLD I bought 4 TPMS for my new MYP straight from Tesla parts center. I thought I was going to buy a Tsportline winter setup but with the backorder I just went for all seasons on the uberturbines instead. These are new, never used. I don't know anything about what other cars they will work on...

    Door ding prevention for parking garage

    I have assigned parking in my building. The spot is kind of tight. I got the white MYP recently, which is larger than my old car, and I'm finding small dings and paint marks from my neighbor's red car. It has car seats in the back, so this probably happens while he is wrangling his weak pull-out...

    2022 Model Y, tesla forgot to install type c ports in the center console

    . . . but what do you miss from your old car?

    It’s been said a million times but CarPlay. Tesla‘s UI for controlling the car settings is good and that’s about it. The music/podcasts/maps/navigation are garbage compared to carplay, even on a tiny 7 inch screen. The voice assistant is especially useless. I’m back to using my iPhone while...

    Trouble Ordering TPMS Sensors

    I had a similar experience with parts not picking up the phone. I finally gave up and just went there and they happened to have the sensors and sold them to me. He sounded surprised that they were in stock. I believe they were $75 ea + tax. Alas I won’t use them. I thought I was getting a...

    Trade two 21 uberturbines for two of yours for square setup?

    Tesla survey shows take rate for Full Self-Driving package is surprisingly low

    Like 3-5 years ago I read an interesting article about how self driving cars would not suddely appear, but incremental pieces of the tech would creep into cars as standard features like lane-keep assist, emergency braking/collision avoidance, parallel parking, auto lane change. Indeed they have...

    Considering a Model Y

    You should take advantage of the used car market while you can. Model 3/Y are holding value insanely well too. You will love the car. It makes ICE cars just seem stupid and antiquated.

    Adjusting without CarPlay?

    As great as Tesla is over legacy autos, it's early days. There Is likely enough room for massive innovation in the areas of battery life/range, infotainment, hardware /software interop and UX , cameras and processors, quality control, and supply chain. These are areas where apple has deep, deep...

    Adjusting without CarPlay?

    That was a huge miss. The design ethos between these two companies is very similar. A part of me, however, thinks that when Apple comes to market with a car it will beat Tesla handily, if way late.

    Help me decide on all season 19", 20" or Ubers

    I would love to but I am low on storage space so my plan is to ultimately just have one set. I am in NJ so while I drive in the snow it is seldom over a few inches on a well plowed road. I take the occasional ski trip to Vermont and have been caught in 8-12" of snow on max perf summers and it...

    POLL: Does your Model Y make this humming sound?

    My '21 MYP makes a myriad of humming, hissing and clicking noises while parked and locked, not plugged in, and cool. I wil pay closer attention to when they do/do not emerge and report back. I assume the noises are normal.

    Adjusting without CarPlay?

    The lack of CarPlay is a real bummer. It's been a downgrade for certain. I use Apple Music and podcasts app exensively while driving and I'm back to fumbling with my phone while driving. The Navigation (Apple Maps) was also leaps and bounds better in terms of UI, Voice/Pronunciation, Guidance...

    Help me decide on all season 19", 20" or Ubers

    I love my new MYP but HATE that it ships to regions with snow on monster 21" STAGGERED wheels with summer tires. Anyway, I need to get all seasons. I considered TSportline TS5s in 19" with contis, then figured why not go 20" because I like the look and that still adds some sidewall over the...
