    Would the Model Y Fishtail with the acceleration?

    You have zero chance of accomplishing any throttle induced oversteer. The 2wd model 3 I can get to break loose around a corner in the rain if I stomp on it just right or even in the snow but the car wont let you have that much fun. The AWD Y, in the snow I can get a sensation of the backend...

    rear door paint damage?

    I have damage almost half way up the door. Obviously it’s worse at the bottom but if I were to do it again I would do the full rear door ppf. It’s not like I can blame the crappy Tesla paint either because the worst door is the one I had painted because of a huge fish eye bubble. The lower...

    Is single peice casting a good or bad thing?

    This is actually not true, at least not here in Canada and I suspect it wouldn't be true in most of the USA as well. Frame damage is absolutely not a death sentence for a car as long as the value of the car is high enough. Here the write off threshold is like 70% of the value of the vehicle. If...

    MY White Paint thick enough for Harbor Freight buffer?

    Polisher and cutting compound would be a desperate last resort. I would try maybe a clay bar and everything else possible first.

    Supercharger cable stuck

    Try to use the app to set the charge limit to less than what you have now and hit start charge? Maybe if it sees you are “done” it will let go

    Charging time while using infotainment

    Insignificant if you are at a supercharger. Slightly more if you are charging at home. Still not worth caring about. You are losing seconds

    Mud flap effectiveness after 1.5k miles (or lack of)

    Reply back here with what they say. I feel like that lower trim should have a little half round wing that runs the full length of it at the top and sticks out an inch or so to try and deflect the road debris away from the paint.

    Mud flap effectiveness after 1.5k miles (or lack of)

    My car is exactly the same. Mud flaps don’t seem to help, the plastic trim isn’t faded it is more sandblasted. The PPF on my rear doors are pulverized and I am regretting only doing the lowers. I should have done the whole door as the chips go basically all the way up.

    Drive.State.Power Codes (1,11,21,4,-9)?

    Not sure what the thumbs down was about on you there but I think you are looking in the the wrong forum section. The average person here wont understand any of that (maybe thats why the thumbs down, someone that doesn't understand). There is another forum section I have seen somewhere here that...

    App request to set the temperature in the car to a certain setting at a specific time of day.

    iPhone user? IOS shortcuts can do it really easy. Same idea as taskar for android.

    What does this speed number mean?

    What is your speed limit mode speed set to? It looks a bit different now but I think it’s the same thing I had. At 80 kph I kept getting this warning and it was because I had set the speed limiter to that. I didn’t have the speed limiter on, just set to 80 and it would warn me whenever I hit...

    What To Do While I Wait

    If I were you, I would consider putting PPF on the entire rear door. I did my rear lower doors right away back in the summer and ceramic coated it and put on mudflaps as soon as I could get them. I have never once been on gravel, I only drove on 1 snow/salt/sand covered highway one time this...

    Model Y speed contol

    I have just standard AP and it actually does adjust the speed up or down some times when I get into a different speed zone. I haven’t exactly figured out why it works some places and not others. I think it has something to do with the map data. Also, Sometimes AP will only let me set a speed at...

    Inaccurate Range Stressed New Owner

    First, change your battery to display %, not distance. The distance reading is pointless. Next, punch in your destination into the nav screen. Now push the right steering wheel button and say “show me the energy screen”. When it comes up select the “trip” tab at the top. Now you will really know...

    Iphone user app

    IOS shortcuts app can let you do all the same stuff as the app but using “hey Siri” instead and all for free. Not good if you’re not super techy though.

    MY accelerated on it’s own!

    Nope. Dead stopped anywhere, even my kids school parking lot. As long as it has something it thinks is a lane line and it has a stopped vehicle in front it will let you double click down and you can choose your speed with the scroll wheel. When the car in front moves, you do too. I only have AP...

    MY accelerated on it’s own!

    Not true. It will engage when stopped as long as it senses the lane lines and there is another vehicle in front of you.

    BC CEV rebate fund topped up

    Yeah I dont think that is right. My buddies came from California in February and my parents just arrived last Friday night,,, unless they were just saying it is in california still to get my dad to stop calling.

    How many have wasted money on paint correction before PPF install?

    I “feel” like I can’t figure out what you are talking about so it’s time to give up trying to convince you that people can have different opinions than you and that doesn’t mean they are wrong. My opinion is the effort was worth it.

    How many have wasted money on paint correction before PPF install?

    Title of the thread is knocking people for wasting money on paint correction. I’m just saying it’s not a waste to do it if you can appreciate it. Your car looks great, glad you are happy with it. I personally wouldn’t have been happy without doing the correction on mine or my buddies . I also...

    How many have wasted money on paint correction before PPF install?

    I guess the control car would be my black y where I missed a section of the hood and it looks bad enough to me that in the summer I am going to strip it and redo it. Or the fact that the bumpers were deeper black than the rest of the car before we ceramic coated. My whole point is though that...

    How many have wasted money on paint correction before PPF install?

    My buddy picked up a black 3 on Thursday. It looked awesome. We were about to ceramic coat it and noticed some scuffs on the bumpers. . Polished them out and the bumpers looked better than the rest of the car. Put a light on it and the whole car is swirled. 5 hours later and now the car looks...

    +1 for the old style console. Wrapped it for a matt finish. The storage in the new console in my buddies 3 just seems to suck.

    Let Stats Handle Charging - Not Tesla

    You probably noticed it is broken now. First delete your old shortcut for getting the access token. Find dburkland iOS shortcuts page on GitHub, download his “shortcuts downloader” shortcut and run it. It then comes up with a list of his shortcuts. He runs them all on a server so you can’t...

    Rear Seat Heaters

    Netflix and YouTube

    I have an error and so does my buddy in his 3 that says “connect to wifi in order to use theatre mode” and I have zero ability to even choose Netflix or YouTube. Premium connectivity is still working otherwise.

    New Model Y Very satisfying but NO HOMELINK

    I’m glad I didn’t get one and didn’t have to pay any extra for my car. I don’t want to waste $300 on some gadget I dont need when I can just use my phone and Siri Shortcuts for $40.

    Fix for rear apron scratches

    Mine had a very large scuff when new. I just waxed it by hand with whatever cheap wax I had kicking around and it disappeared until you wash it a couple times then slowly comes back. Wax it again and it disappears again for a while. Worth a try to see if it’s good enough for you.

    After 3 months and a couple days with a Y

    Post has to be a troll or OP doesn’t know how to work the car or I’m reading it really wrong. First he complains about it acting stupid for red/green lights then later says he has autopilot hardware but not the software. All the Y have autopilot ( which is basically just cruise control) so he...

    Slipping on inclines while in park

    I am going to assume the tires are sliding and not turning. You are probably used to having a front wheel drive car where you put it in park and the front lock then you engage the park break so you have front and rear tires holding you back. My diesel Dodge Ram will slide out of my driveway if I...

    Anyone else dislike the new UI?

    Maybe it’s just a voice thing. It never fails me though I do start all me commands with “Set...” so “set heater to recirculate”, “Set heater to fresh air”, “set fan speed to xx”. “Set temperature to xx” etc. Works perfectly for me unless I have some chatty passengers.

    Anyone else dislike the new UI?

    Easier than pushing the button on the steering wheel and saying turn wipers on or set wipers to one or two or three or four or turn wipers off or pushing it and saying set climate too xxx degrees? Im not sure I understand what people are asking for when they want the controls to be easier. It...

    PWS - 2020 Model Y - Help!!!

    I agree, I could not care any less about some stupid fart horn and am not looking forward to a bunch of Tesla’s that want to drive around with the boom box on adding to the noise pollution from the rest of the traffic . I wish it was just active when stationary or just active instead of the UFO...

    Why not buy a Mustang Mach-E?

    I don’t get why the wipers being complicated to use always comes up. The entire car can be operated with one button on the steering wheel. Push it and say set wipers to one or two or three or four or turn wipers off to turn them off. How much simpler can it be? Am I missing something? As for...

    Iphone case perfect for Tesla Card

    I have the same case and it has all my cards inside as I do not carry a wallet. Everyone gets excited “ what if you lose your phone then you have lost everything” but I always reply that if I lose my phone I can “find my iPhone” and find it again, do that with your lost wallet. I actually cut...

    4 tires in trunk?

    Seats have to be down unless maybe you don’t mind wedging them into the back and hitting the headliner and stuff.

    Are wheel locks worth it? And if so, which are best?

    If it makes you feel better, then sure but if you are hoping they will stop a thief, it is only a minor hassle to deal with the wheel locks. You just hammer a 12 point socket on them. I guess if you had all the lug nuts as wheel locks that would be a deterrent.

    Model Y Trailer Wiring Harness - Part Number?

    The connector looks identical to the one on the Y. Its a Molex 34985-1606, but the Y seems to have the wires maybe in a different spot. Not actually tried one though.

    Do we have any recourse for this insanely poor paint quality?

    I’ve been saying since July that the rear doors are getting pulverized at the arch and no one knows it and come spring there will be a bunch of threads about destroyed rear doors. I guess I was off by 6 months. The front edge of the rear door, when I was wrenching the rule was always to make...

    Decision decision decision

    If you need a car soon, I think that almost rules out the Mach-e. GO take a Y for a test drive if you havent already, you can book a drive out in North Van there and get a good mix of highway and city driving. THe fit and finish complaints I think are subjective. You have 3 sides to the story...

    Let Stats Handle Charging - Not Tesla

    Yeah for sure. I added in voice replies like "yes master" ( go +, documents, speak text) and also I have it tell me what the battery charge is at (you need to do a get request for that). Also have it so that as soon as I run it, if its plugged in it will start the charger as well so you can put...

    Let Stats Handle Charging - Not Tesla

    Sounds like you have the hang of it. I think decimals work by .5 so 20, 20.5, 21, 21.5 but that’s just based on how it shows up on the car screen when I adjust the temperature, I’ve not tried it with the app.

    2 choices, easy way where I create a variable and you just plug in a number or a little less easy way where you enter the number in a hidden spot. Easy way makes it work, less easy way helps you understand how it works. Your choice. Both will just be a link you open from your phone and save it.

    Model Y has auto dimming mirrors

    Do you have before and after views from the mirrors? How distorted is the view? I use my mirrors a lot for backing up and don’t like when it is too fisheye like to the point where it distorts reality, like the cameras do. Really like this idea if it is mild enough to not be noticeable but...
