That is correct however the USB thumb drive that comes with the Tesla vehicle is not well suited to the high level of writing data to the drive from Sentry Mode, Tesla Dash Cam. The Tesla USB thumb drive is a nice piece of swag but for more reliable, long term data recording you would be better off with either an SSD or use a USB-MicroSD adapter and a MicroSD memory card such as the SanDisk Endurance card or Samsung Pro Endurance memory card. Unless you plan to store a large music collection on a partition of the SSD or MicroSD card 128GBs of storage is all you would need (a 128GB storage device can store approx. 18 hours of video.)Don't the newer models of 3 and Y come with a USB drive for DashCam/Sentry in the glove box now?
I've not had an issue with the hatch area lighting. I rarely use the frunk for storage. The 3rd party door puddle lights are popular.Are the trunk/frunk lights as pitifully dim on the Y as they are/were on the S? If so:

The Tesla mud flaps are only for the front wheel wells. There are several active threads regarding the pros, cons and choices of mud flaps for the Model Y.
A short far but from complete list of accessories that new Tesla owners look to purchase include:
Front row, second row, third row (where equipped) floor liners
Hatch and storage bin floor liners
Tesla paint protection film (PPF) for the rear doors
Data storage devices (SSD, MicroSD card, USB drive) for capturing Dash Cam recordings, Sentry Mode recordings and optionally music files
Spare tire kits (Modern spare)
Wheels and tires
Lift point pads (can be used when jacking up the vehicle, changing wheels/tires)
Tesla Acceleration Boost (AB) over the air update for the Model Y
The Tesla Mudflaps are something you or a friend can install in 10 minutes. The only tool required is a flat blade screwdriver or a notched fastener removal tool (2 pop in fasteners per side.)So for the mud flaps can I ask them to add it on delivery day or is that something I have to get myself and install myself?
Same for the PFF for rear doors?
Might be nice if we have links to some of the other items? Or is that prohibited here cause its advertising?
I personally am looking for 7 seater floor liners and frunk+trunk liners, anyone with recommendations?

Oh good to know!The current versions of Tesla's Dash Cam and Sentry Mode, the Sentry Mode Viewer will now work with exFAT and NTFS formatted drives, devices. The Tesla Sentry Mode software will format new devices. The older Tesla software would only work with devices that had been formatted using the FAT32 file system formatted devices. This was an issue for MS Windows users as Windows OS would only format storage devices with a maximum of 32Gb using the FAT32 file system. This was not a limitation for Mac users as the Mac OS could format larger capacity storage devices using FAT32.
The need to either jump through several hoops, download third party software onto a Windows PC to format, partition larger storage devices on a MS Windows PC in FAT32 format or else pay a premium for a storage device that has already been formatted using FAT32 file system are OBE. All you need to do is insert the device, cable or adapter into the USB-A port located inside the glovebox (for Model Y with the updated console) and select the Format option from the Dash Cam / Sentry Mode Viewer software. The Tesla software handles formatting the device and even creates the required /TeslaCam folder.
It could, but check the max power draw of the SSD. The maximum power of the USB-A port is 5V and 0.5A to 09.A (2.5W to 4.5W). The other thing to check is the operating and storage temperature range for the SSD (you should also check the temperature limits for any USB drive or MicroSD card you plan to use.) The interior of a vehicle in summer can get to well over 140F. (The Tesla vehicle has cabin overheat protection that is designed to keep the cabin temperature from exceeding 105F. Even after you enable Cabin Overheat Protection if the Tesla has been parked for more than 12 hours the cabin overheat protection turns off, does not reset automatically until the next time you drive and park.)Oh good to know!
So then any SSD will do?
SSD such as the Samsung T7 continue to be popular digital storage options but unless you have a very large music collection this amount of storage (500GB+) is overkill.This is what I purchased.
Best ones by far, got mines the day before yesterday
I just looked up the frunk opener mods... it cannot be unseen...I bought the Tesla Offer Model Y frunk opener a couple of months ago and installed it myself (picked car up on Tuesday). I'm glad I did as I felt that the frunk was a little too flexible and I can see it being easily creased. Only other mods I intend to do is mud flaps, full frontal PPF and an SSD to replace the 128GB USB stick.
