    Vendor eas | ADRO Tesla Model Y Carbon Fiber Program released

    I really need to get around to buying the rear & side skirts, waiting on that quarterly bonus money 🤪

    Smoked headlights??

    I bought the xpel cutouts from RPMTesla, though in the picture it looks a bit cloudy because this was after a 800mi drive, it was a bit dirty at that time.

    Good polish compound for a light door scratch

    I had my car detailed awhile back and the detailer scratched the trunk somehow, didn't notice till he left. Anyhow, I got some of the Chemical Guys Scratch and Swirl Remover and it worked great.

    PSA: Avoid buying wheel & Tire Combos

    Sure, but incorrect balancing of the wheels can happen at any tire shop as well. Which was my point.

    PSA: Avoid buying wheel & Tire Combos

    Wheels get balanced per wheel, they don't balance them to the car. So, what you mentioned makes no sense. Furthermore if the vendor is stating it's the car and you went to a tire shop, had them balance the wheels and give you the specs of what weights they added/remove to each wheel to make them...

    Installed! Austin MY C Pillars for Parcel Shelf

    If you mentioned the word "retrofit" in your initial message, then that's your issue. You need to clearly state you want these three parts, which are not VIN locked. That's it, any more information and they'll probably say no.

    Teslas - Family /w Teenagers

    1. Key card linked to a driver profile, is ideal. 2. Set a speed limiter as well, the speed limiter can only be taken off with a pass-code. In setting this think about where they should be going, i.e. if they're driving on the highway at all, set it to be within the highway speeds (etc). My...

    Tesla Insurance

    Last I looked into this, Tesla itself hasn't sad anything about it being available (that I'm aware of). Just they filed the paperwork with the state, which is how news sites got the information. Based on said documentation it would allow Tesla Insurance to "start as early as 10/20/2022"...

    MYP Front Splitter Pic Thread

    Finally got around to actually installing the Adro front lip and had the car detailed. (Pics turned out a little darker and shinier than I expected, but it's good enough for now.)

    Preventing Hansshow 9” Display & similar products from bouncing & making noise

    While, I don't own any of the Hansshow displays, I would think using some neoprene foam strips should do the trick. Though I would definitely measure how much of a thickness you need. There's a wide variety of thicknesses on Amazon (here's an example, https://a.co/6MkwYo0), I've used neoprene in...

    I might have left a plastic pry somewhere in one the panels, I haven't found it since... I know I lost a couple of those tiny white clips, of which I think I heard an awkward rattle last night. Any case, I ordered some of those white clips from Amazon (https://a.co/0CfeaQD), because I'm ocd...

    Installed! Austin MY C Pillars for Parcel Shelf

    Finally got everything installed... only took 2 months and 2 days to get all the parts, for about an hour install -__- Not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but an impact wrench for loosening the seat belt bolts made things extremely easy. Used some loctite 243 and torqued the bolts to 30lbs.

    MYP Front Splitter Pic Thread

    gonna cheat as it's not actually on the car yet (you can see it kind of hanging forwards). waiting to get it PPF'd before I put it on the car (no way I'm not PPF'ing this). Ardo Front Lip, still debating on the side skirts atm.

    What is this thing that looks like a huge key?

    Considering most vehicles have came with a tow hook for the last 20+ years (outside of trucks or jeeps), Maybe you could help yourself and learn a little by taking the time actually read the manual. As you seem to be a bit behind the times or ignorant (which is kind of displayed by not wanting...

    Installed! Austin MY C Pillars for Parcel Shelf

    After getting pushed back 4x, I finally got *some* of the parts. I got the left pillar and shelf, but the right pillar was still being shipped. Then the person at the service center marked it as completed and they closed the request. So, now I'm waiting on them to look at the new request and...

    Retrofit Texas MY parcel sherlf

    I think I've gotten a new ETA 3x now on getting the parts. Slightly annoying to say the least. Here I was all happy they didn't give me any crap about ordering the parts, but a month later still no parts 😞.

    Need help isolating rattle

    I've got a weird rattle on the passenger side. I'm about to put in a service appointment for it, but haven't yet. From what I've noticed it's between the passenger door armrest and the pillar. Putting some foam between that gap stops the rattle. So, awkward, but today I'm fairly certain I...

    I've got a MYP 2021 (Fremont), I'm picking up my parts on the 12th. I will be installing them (or attempting to?) that day, so I should have some details on that coming by end of the week. Granted, this is of course if they actually got the parts in, I haven't heard anything from them after I...

    Installed! Austin MY C Pillars for Parcel Shelf

    I set the appointment for two weeks out, I figured that would give them enough time to get all the parts in. Would be nice if they got them in sooner in the SC gave me a call or message through the app.

    Installed! Austin MY C Pillars for Parcel Shelf

    ha, I thought the same thing! I put in the notes that I didn't really need an appointment, after they gave me the estimate I thought they would cancel the appointment and just let me know when the parts are in, but so far they've kept the appointment.

    @DealMasterMike glad to see this worked out well! I've been following this and I just submitted my request to Tesla Service. Hopefully my service center won't be jerks, I don't see why they would. I did notate in my request that the requested parts are not VIN restricted, lol.

    Vendor eas | ADRO Tesla Model Y Carbon Fiber Program released

    @tom @ eas would it be possible to get a top-down view of the side skirts? Also, definitely interested when non-full kits are inbound, should I go ahead and message you about that or wait?

    Finally a front lip and rear that I love! I'd definitely be down for a front lip, rear, and maybe the side's. I would like to see some real-world pictures of the sides on the car. Don't need the spoiler.

    Homelink for Model Y - Is it worth it?

    For me, yes, I love never having to touch my garage door controls or having a fugly garage door remote on the visor. For others, who knows, all up to the person.

    Who ordered a Tesla Model Y without test driving one first?

    First time I drove any Tesla was the day my Model Y Perf was delivered to my house. I rode in several, never drove one... 🤷‍♂️

    Should I black out my badges/emblems on my black MY?

    It took me a bit, but my front and rear emblems are real C/F overlays (glossy), which matches my side mirrors, spoiler and fender camera housings. It gives a nice subtle C/F accents to the car, I'm not a fan of fake C/F wraps. I say it took me a bit, because finding C/F overlays for the front /...

    All weather mats…. Tis the season (POLL)

    The OEM All-Weather are made by Weathertech, they state so on the back of the mats. I think it all depends on the user (you) needs. If you're in an area that rains a lot, I'd say OEM All-Weather. If you're in an area that gets a lot of rain and snow and all that comes with it, maybe a full...

    Carbon Fiber Heated Steering Wheel

    Yokes on the Y make zero sense, there's no display the current steering wheel is blocking (unlike the S/X). So, it's pure FOMO, so to each their own on that... Personally most of my interior is forged carbon fiber, as I wanted something a bit different for the interior. Finding a forged carbon...
