    Ingenext Boost Modules [aftermarket]

    3.7? Is that on M3 or MY?

    Trilling sound during the first 30 seconds of driving

    Thanks for the suggestion. This stops after about a minute and only occurs when I am leaving home. Hasn't happened in the past couple of weeks, so go figure.

    Trilling sound during the first 30 seconds of driving

    So this has baffled me for the past month or so. When I leave my garage during the first 30 seconds of driving I hear light a trilling sound (kinda like the Star Trek comms, but much softer), which appears to be coming from the car's speakers. It lasts about a second or two and is not...

    Do Not Understand Tesla Rationale for Why There is No Sirius/XM in Model 3 or Y

    Now that sucks: Model S 2021+ got SiriusXM app on the last update, but 3/Y not? I don't get it.

    Grocery bag hooks for trunk

    Has anyone found grocery bag hooks for the trunk of their MY? I have looked all over the internet and can only find for M3, but nothing for MY.

    Charging speed on European outlets

    Thanks @iustin . Not so much a daily driver. I spend 3-4 months a year in Greece and will primarily use for maybe 250-350 km road trips. But it sounds like if I stay at least a couple of days at a particular location I can get it back to 100%, even if it's down to 10%, just by plugging into a...

    Anyone regret buying the Acceleration Boost for their Model Y?

    Gosh darn it, guys, I was so close to saying "nah, I can do without AB" until I read this thread. Y'all just cost me $2K. 😂

    Charging speed on European outlets

    I am considering buying a Model Y in Greece, but the charging infrastructure is quite poor, so basically will be relying on plugging into a regular electrical outlet. For folks who are in Europe and charge by just plugging in to their outlet at home, what charging speeds do you get in terms of...

    Ingenext Boost Modules [aftermarket]

    Has anyone installed the Boost 50 module from Ingenext? Would like to know experiences from using? How difficult was the installation? Is it a pain to have to remove it for updates? Thanks.

    VA State Waiting room

    Got delivery of mine today. Was pretty ho-hum about it. After driving around for a bit, however,... loooove! That instant torque is something to behold. I have the LR with no Acceleration Boost and it still pins me to the back of my seat. This is one great vehicle. I feel like the person...

    Tablet roof mount

    Got it. And these are good for mounting on the glass roof? I didn't see any that showed a roof mounting, so curious as to whether that would work with these.

    Tablet roof mount

    I have seen this tablet mount for Tesla that suction cups to the roof, but can't seem to locate one online. Anyone have any links handy?

    Home delivery tomorrow, 9/4. Was supposed to be today, but Ida sidetracked a lot of deliveries. I have waited for 3 months, but these last few hours seem to be the most unbearable. Lol

    VA State Waiting room

    Anyone have a Sep 3 delivery scheduled from the Tyco Rd location? Mine got pushed out to Sep 4. Apparently the vehicle will not be at the Tyco location until the 3rd, so kinda difficult to do home delivery the same day, I imagine. Did anyone contact Tyco to see if they can pick up in person?

    Changing payment method after getting VIN

    Still on cash? I reached out to my SA and a bit later I saw the option to do a loan or lease. Worst case, just drive over there, if you're close.

    VA State Waiting room

    Yeah, as far as Fairfax county is concerned, it's as if EVs don't even exist. Weird.

    VA State Waiting room

    Could it be that, since you ordered a P, the LR fell down the pecking order? I mean, with a 5/23 OD, you should have been getting a VIN around the time you ordered the P. Just grasping, mind.
  19. alekaras

    VA State Waiting room

    MY LR, MSM, Inductions. So OD:6/8, VIN 8/20, Delivery 9/3. Pretty much within the range that Tesla indicated when I ordered. More towards the longer end, 13 weeks. Being overseas and not returning until 8/29, I was actually more worried about an early delivery, so pretty chill about the...

    Looks like it's 4.15% EDIT: that's the sales tax. Not sure what the property tax is.

    Delivery times of Tesla Model-Y (June-July orders)

    So as long as it's 25XXXX, then it should be a more recent build, right?
  22. alekaras

    Delivery times of Tesla Model-Y (June-July orders)

    Same question here. My VIN is 253XXX. Is that good? Bad? Indifferent?

    5-20 charging speed

    Wow, that's way over the 4 mph that I've seen most people posting, as well as what the Tesla shop advertises. Do you have a newer model MY? Could the charging be more efficient on newer models?
  24. alekaras

    I'm curious, if you are leaving for a year, why would you want to buy a car that will sit around for a year? Unless you are taking the car with you, in which case maybe order to pick up where you will be at for the next year?
  25. alekaras

    Delivery times of Tesla Model-Y (June-July orders)

    Ordered MY LR (MSM, Induction, black interior, no FSD) on June 8th. Got my VIN August 20. Delivery shows Sep 4-6. Anyone's guess what the actual delivery date will be, but overall looks like it will take 3 months, which was just a smidge over the high end of the 8-13 week estimate when I ordered.

    Changing payment method after getting VIN

    Thanks @Brightside1 and @baldyloxx for the quick feedback. I'm relieved to say the least!

    Changing payment method after getting VIN

    So I finally got my VIN and the delivery estimate (yay). When I placed my order, I had selected cash payment, just to move ahead with it. All along, however, I was planning on leasing, rather than buying. Now that I have my VIN and my payment is due, I do not see an option online to change my...

    Pick up using Power of Attorney

    I did some digging since I posted the original post and I find this a bit strange. A PoA should be valid if it meets the state's requirements. I don't think Tesla can force you to use one of theirs, much less have it notarized at a DMV and for a Tesla employee to be a witness on the form.
  29. alekaras

    VA State Waiting room

    That's mine too. Haven't taken delivery of mine yet, but the interactions with the folks there have been great. My SA is super responsive and helps as much as she can (understanding that some things are just out of her hands).
  30. alekaras

    VA State Waiting room

    If it's any consolation, my current dates are Aug 21 - Sep 8. No FSD on mine. I'm in no hurry, since I won't be back before Aug 29, but hope you got delivery of yours, at least!

    Picking up car using Power of Attorney

    I know this has been posted in the past, but there is limited info on the forum. Has anyone picked up their car using power of attorney.

    Anyone using Quick220 to charge at 220V using 110V outlets?

    I recently came across this product. You plug it in to two regular 120V 5-15 outlets and it converts to 220V outlet (basically the equivalent of a 6-15). Has anyone used this and did it affect anything in your home?

    Thanks. I also saw the video @srlawren posted and it all came together. Great analysis from both!

    5-20 charging speed

    Thanks @jcanoe I found the comment about how fast I drive intriguing. How would that affect charging?

    5-20 charging speed

    I'm moving to a new townhouse that has the crappiest electric lines and will not support a 240V outlet. So I'm stuck with a 5-20. I know the Tesla site says 4 miles/hr charging rate, but is there anyone using it that is getting different numbers?

    Anyone using a 5-20, how many miles/hr do you get?

    I have a question: I would refresh the status page to see if there is any update on the EDD. This morning I got logged out and logged back in to my Tesla account and it displayed a message asking me if I'm ready to take delivery. I clicked I'm Ready and then got the usual status page. Does...

    Model Y review after Test Drive

    Are you thinking about the 21" Uberturbines, perhaps?

    And one more question: where do I see the EDD? Is it in the box were the RN# is below the Price?
  45. alekaras

    Current Delivery Times

    I just ordered yesterday. Do I have to complete the financing piece too, or can I do that once I get closer to the actual delivery date? Does not completing it impact the delivery date in any way?
  46. alekaras

    Current Delivery Times

    I never find anything in the existing inventory! Thanks for the suggestion, though.
  47. alekaras

    Current Delivery Times

    So I have a slightly different issue: I'm currently overseas and will not be back until the end of August. I will need a car when I get back, as I have already sold mine. I want to place an order to time delivery with my return. Seeing how it is not even remotely close to an exact science...
