    Passenger lumbar support missing from new MY

    It's funny because a lot of people were waiting for the new console, heated steering wheel, and new headlights. I bet they never figured that they could lose out on radar and lumbar support on the passenger's side. Glad I took delivery in early March and didn't have to deal with this nonsense.

    How often do you have to reset?

    So it sounds like I'm having to reset it more often than others. I was hoping it was not out of the ordinary. At the same time, I haven't experienced any black screen that others mentioned. I suppose that could be worse.

    How often do you have to reset?

    I've had the MY since March 6, and I've had to reset 3 times because the touchscreen was unresponsive. Is that normal? Is it just like your phone, and it's to be expected that we'll have to reset from time to time? What was interesting is that even though the touchscreen didn't work, I was...

    How to pay day-of pickup to ensure no delay?

    I paid with a cashier's check. Very simple and no issues with delivery.

    MY 7 Seat 2nd row trim keeps popping off

    I think that is common. I had it repaired, and no problems since. You just have to get a better feel for gaining access to the 3rd row. The button can be a bit finicky.

    Model Y thoughts

    It definitely was overkill for my family. Lol.

    Model Y thoughts

    The seat is incredibly comfortable for me, but I did think they could be tight for larger guys. One thing that disappointed me a bit is the cargo area. I'm coming from a Lexus RX350, and the Model Y is 2 inches wider and just one inch shorter. However, the cargo area is significantly smaller...

    CA carpool sticker -- Best to order in November for 2021?

    Has anyone applied in November hoping to get it in January, only to get it before the end of the year?

    Vendor Floor Mats

    As a 7-seater owner, I'd really like it if there was a mat that protected not just the back of the 3rd row in the down position, but also the armrests.

    Will my bicycle and family fit?

    The 7-seater definitely comes in handy, especially if you have young kids who are just out of boosters. They fit there very easily back there. I was able to pick up my brother's family from the airport just last month. My 7-seater plus tow hitch storage box fit 3 adults, 4 kids, 2 large...

    CA carpool sticker -- Best to order in November for 2021?

    Hearing about all these delays, I'm wondering if I'm better off submitting the application towards the end of this year. I'm still waiting for my plates, so it's probably going to be 4 months out for me, which pushes me into August. Seems like it would be safe to submit it towards the end of...

    New Model Y has version 2020.47.104

    What version is it supposed to be?

    14-50 Nema outlet /mobile connector wall mount

    What I like about the Tesla version is that you don't stick the plug into a receptor. In reading some of the reviews, it seems that it can be finicky and get stuck. Also, it would jut out, and my garage is pretty tight as it is.

    Demo vehicles, do they have updated features

    Like I said, I think this is just based on personal preference. There's no right or wrong answer. For you, it might make sense. For others, it may not.

    Shipping cost for Tesla accessories

    Ah, that makes sense. I did think the price was higher at some point, but I wasn't sure if I just imagined it or what. I was thinking maybe it was $80 at some point.

    Demo vehicles, do they have updated features

    I personally don't think it's worth it for me to save $1,000 to get a demo vehicle. To put it another way, would I accept $1,000 to have my vehicle driven by a bunch of strangers for several weeks? No, I would not. But that's just my personality. When I buy things at a store, I never pick the...

    Shipping cost for Tesla accessories

    I just bought the tire repair kit. It was $60 when I bought it, and I just checked that the price is still the same. Was it $104 before?

    That's what I went with, and I really like my setup. Very easy install.

    7-seat config waiting room

    I was told I can only look from the outside and that I have to complete the purchase to check out the interior. However, the guy who dropped it off was pretty chill. There's only so much to look at, so it didn't take too long. Nothing obvious and definitely nothing that made me want to reject...

    I had home delivery, but I told them I was paying with a cashier's check. They didn't seem to mind. I handed them the check at drop off after I had a chance to look it over.

    3rd Row Lights

    I ended up buying two of these USB-C lights from RPM Tesla. I tested them out, and they can be plugged right into the two USB-C slots by the cup holder. The great thing is that they're small enough so that the 2nd row can be pushed all the way back and reclined, and the lights still won't touch...

    3rd Row Floor Mats

    One other thing that has me concerned are the 3rd row armrests. They're exposed, and I'm sure they're going to get dinged up when throwing stuff into the back with the 3rd row down. I'm wondering if there could be a cover of some sort for that area. If it could be integrated so that it covers...

    Mud flaps & Model Y

    I ended up going with the Tesla mud flaps for the front. That was all I was planning to do, but after reading up on this forum, I was convinced to get the film protection from Tesla, and RPM Tesla hooked it up and let me purchase just the rear mud flaps for 50% off the normal price for 4. I went...

    Has anyone regretted the color the chose enough to try trading in shortly after purchasing?

    I think it helps to see the different colors in person. I was pretty dead set on getting MSM until I saw both the MSM and pearl white in person. The showroom had the white, and our test drive vehicle was gray. The white with the black wheels just looked much better than gray with black wheels. I...

    Does anyone know what this strap is?

    I recently got the 7 seater, and it also had that same loose strap, which I found when getting into the 3rd row. In looking at that second row, I was thinking it could be related to the seat belt, but everything seems to work fine without it. I left it on the ground for now. I am scheduled to go...

    Best interest rate via Tesla financing?

    I originally got 2.49% with Wells Fargo. I then emailed Tesla to get 2.04% with Chase. Then, for whatever reason, Chase lowered it down further to 1.79%. Pretty happy.

    3rd Row Lights

    What I was wondering is could you make it so that the trunk lights automatically come on when the doors open? I think that would address the problem.

    3rd Row Lights

    It's been just over a week since I took delivery of my 7-seater. One issue I have is that there really are no lights in that 3rd row. Because the 2nd row seats are so high, it blocks out any visibility in the 3rd row when trying to put on your seat belt. If I open the trunk, then there's enough...

    Model Y and Model 3 Refreshed Center Console Tray Set

    The problem with the tray is that it blocks out the light. I got one but ended up returning it.

    New tow hitch cover

    I saw an early YouTube video of someone who did not order the hitch. He saw the cover and popped it off to see if he got one by accident, and he didn't.

    New tow hitch cover

    Just took delivery on Saturday. Still has the old cover. I bought some pry tools which were totally useless. Covering up a flathead screwdriver with some tape did the trick without scratching anything. I'm not planning to use the tow hitch that often, so in the grand scheme of things, not a big...

    7 Seater Floor/Trunk Mats?

    Haven't really seen anything new on this subject. Curious if anyone with a 7 seater has any insight. I'm scheduled to get my 7 seater delivered on Saturday.

    MY7 v. MY5 - 2nd row seat recline and trunk space

    I placed an order on the 7 seater before even having the chance to check it out. I figured I could change it later. When it finally arrived at my local showroom, I checked it out and was pleasantly surprised. My head did touch the glass, but I would never sit back there. My kids are 8 and 6, so...

    Should I wait until after the Qtr-end madness?

    I made the mistake of buying a bunch of accessories thinking that the estimated delivery range would be accurate. I'm now past the return window on everything, and one of the accessories, the Taptes usb hub, is already obsolete because of the new console. I totally get the enthusiasm, but this...

    New tow hitch cover

    That's unfortunate, but I wonder if that means they're interchangeable. If they weren't, I would think it's unlikely that they would've told you they were sending the newer version.

    MY7 v. MY5 - 2nd row seat recline and trunk space

    One other question I had was is it possible to remove the 3rd row? I doubt it would be easy, but I've seen people do some crazy things to their car. I wonder how much extra space you would get if you removed the 3rd row.

    New tow hitch cover

    I recall a new picture floating around that showed a modified tow hitch cover on Tesla's website. However, there really hasn't been any further talk about it. I also can't seem to find any information about it on Google or YouTube. Has anyone seen the new tow hitch cover? Curious if those taking...

    Can we have a moratorium on this post until someone from CA gets a vin? I get excited seeing an update here only to be disappointed to find yet another post of someone who hasn't gotten a vin.

    Tow Hitch Option Gone from Design Studio

    Has anyone received the new tow hitch cover? There was a picture floating around that seemed to show a new design, but there seems to be very little discussion about it. Curious if those who took recent delivery received the new version.

    7-seat config waiting room

    If that's the case, maybe I can use the delay to my advantage and leave things as is. While I've been itching to get the vehicle, I'm not in a rush since I was not planning to do a trade in, and $7,000 is a lot to leave on the table. Even if the EV tax credit doesn't get passed in the near...
