    I have a 20MY. I did order in September and had a VIN removed from the order and replaced with a 2020 vehicle. I must have one of the first 2020.

    I can say my 20 is quieter than the 19. Especially lack of wind noise around the door window seals - much improved.

    Man, I would be ecstatic for better sound deadening... That is worth it right there.

    Drives me nuts that these things are so noisy at highway and interstate speeds compared to my other cars.

    I think it depends on the build though. My 2018 wasn't that bad but my 2019 is like a wind tunnel.

    Would this not jeopardize any federal tax credit?

    Was there any feedback on why the bag clips were removed? I really like them and would think most would. Are they just going through the car to remove complexity and reduce cost?

    Just got a call from SA. They have a car in inventory for me.
    it's a 2019 but she told me since it was built on oct 8, the "improvements" are already in place.

    No. Tax credit (the subsequent reductions) are based on delivery date in calendar quarters, not model years.

    It notes the date you take delivery, not the model year.

    So what are the differences between the 2020 and the 2019?

    Is this sarcasm? Or do you typically not read any of the posts in a thread before posting?

    I don't think one can definitely say that any particular difference is between a MY19 and MY20 as they are constantly changing throughout the year. I have what is probably one of the MY19s (October build) and it is extremely quiet, has no frunk mat but does have the bag clips - for example.

    That's how they got the better sound deadening.

    Yeah, I think I may have opened the Frunk twice since getting the car in June.

    You got your 2020 Model Y already?! This is an outrage! I pre-ordered on launch day and don't have mine yet. Suing Tesla tomorrow.

    You knows it’s going to confuse or annoy so many people. First it was the whole M3 nonsense, and now it’s going to be the whole MY 2020 stuff, too. I give up.

    I got a MY 2020!

    You got a 2020 MY?

    No! A MY 2020!
