Hmm I'm getting offered $39k for my Model 3. I wonder if I should sell and buy the Y. So tempting. Just putting about $20k out of pocket to buy.

What was your original purchase price?

model 3's held like 80% of its value.. may be worth to take a look..
I've sat in many 3's before and i have the y now.. i would say the larger cargo space as well as more comfortable rear seat experience would be the reason to upgrade.  As a taller guy, i would feel my knees would be near my chest in a 3, but in a y it's perfect.  Beyond that, the 3 is very similar so may not be worth the hit..But if the end goal is a CT, just wait it out i think... im hoping my Y holds 80% of its value too so i can maybe switch to the CT

Mine was $50k after getting the $10k incentive.

I personally would choose Cybertruck over Model Y, but I don't think it fits in our garage. You need a proper driveway or 3CWG for that.

Same... but can't wait until 21-22.

By then our other lease will be up, the Y will go to the boss and I'll get the CT. :)

Plan A So are you going to sign up for solar? Process takes time to get solar.

Yeah... still debating between subscription or purchase.

Quote
Plan B Get a Level 2 charger. If or when you get the Tesla.

Actually, because of remote work, just a normal 110v will work. I can take it to a fast charge place and then just top up at home every day.

Eventually I have to put in probably 2 or 3 L2s but that can wait until I figure out solar (which will happen before 21-22 too :) ).

Anyone believe the Model Y standard range is gone for good or is Elon just trying to push buyers to the long range version if buyers can’t wait?

Talking about range, how is the Y range "in real life" for the few owners on this board?

Genuinely curious as there seems to be a lot of diverging opinions (Tesla self tests, advertised range may be difficult to reach etc..).

I get about 280 wh/mile. I drive on "chill" mode, which is plenty fast for me. Range isn't as good on those 90+ degree days as you're running AC more constantly.

I hired an electrician to install a 14-50 outlet, and it was $300.

That's a good price. Every electrician is quoting me $1000+. Who did you use?

A guy from the company Irvine Pacific uses for their new construction. He does work on the side. PM me if you need his contact info.

Once u tint the roof/windshield the wh/drops significantly. My ac is usually at 1 all day now. Used to be around 330, now down to 280 or less with very brisk driving

I like the VW Mini bus interior and new technologies.  But what we have seen is the prototype and I have concerns about what the final product will look like.  Pricing is also a concern.

If the VW Mini bus is priced at $40,000 (base), it'd be very attractive at only $7000-$8000 over the Honda Odyssey ($33k) and Toyota Sienna ($32K) base models.  The new Sienna minivan lineup is all hybrid and gets 33 mpg, which is quite attractive.

The VW Mini Bus is also a $40k (?) gamble on v1.0 product, versus Honda and Toyota minivans are mature technology.
