My 2 12 months 2021 Mannequin Y LR Assessment/Replace

Properly, not mine, my wifes. (Bought for her as a present Dec 2020).

White on White, LR, 20″ wheel improve. Had ~6 miles on it at time of pickup. Added the Accel Enhance perhaps 5 months after buy. PPF on hood solely. NO FSD. She loves commonplace AP when on freeway. In metropolis she prefers fingers on driving really feel. (She enjoys..driving). Home windows tinted. No different notable equipment/mods. Presently has proper at 29k miles. Most likely a mixture of 85% metropolis, 15% freeway use. Garaged day and night time.

Random notes:

– Automotive had zero points at pickup/supply time. Sure, zero. Service Heart accommodated my request (on the time) to have it within the showroom with a pink bow. The SC workers was unbelievable
– Just one service ticket inside two years, and that was for a loosening rear view mirror. Cellular Ranger mounted that in lower than an hour.
-Contemplated including energy frunk equipment (I did that on a previous S I owned), however opted in opposition to it as I by no means used the frunk in any respect on my S. (okay, one time, to hold caserole to a cookout)
-Have two 240v retailers in my storage (I had a devoted circuit/breaker panel put in in my indifferent storage after I had the home constructed), one for my present 2022 S and the opposite for the Y. Cost solely with the included cellular connectors throughout off peak the place charges are ~11 cents per KWH. Cost each to ~55% every night time, except we plan a street journey. As soon as each 3 months or so I do cost each to about 95%. Its been supercharged perhaps, 4 instances whole in 2 years.
-Havent measured any type of battery degradation/vary lower simply hasnt come up and I merely dont obsess over it. I am going to assume its between 5-9% loss, simply primarily based on web studying. 95% (or extra) of day by day driving for my spouse is 30 miles or much less. That’s lower than 2 hours on the cellular connector at night time to get that again
-Tires have worn evenly however want changing now. I rotated them entrance to again at 15k miles or so.
-Ordered the accel increase earlier than a street journey and absolutely meant to cancel inside 48 hours. (Spouse has by no means been into excessive efficiency. Earlier car was a Lexus RX. Boring.) Nonetheless, I used to be fallacious. She 100% wished to maintain the accel increase. So we did.
-Excessive factors per the spouse: Pulling into storage and plugging in. Large comfort vs filling with fuel. Quiet clean fast acceleration at anytime. No gear adjustments, no noise, no ready till engine has warmed as much as speed up exhausting. Loves warming up car within storage through cellular app. Heater works quick in winter. Nothing has ever damaged (her phrases). Loves the model, the room, consolation, how nice the white inside holds up. (Nonetheless like new). She additionally loves the display/know-how. (And she or he HATES hello tech issues. Nonetheless writes herself notes on sticky notes vs utilizing siri to dictate notes on her Iphone)
-PPF primarily a waste(hood solely), however I did it myself so minimal value. No PPF on entrance bumper cowl and whole # of nicks is 3. Every approx 1 mm in dimension. Cautious utility of touchup paint made them almost invisible past 3 toes of staring IF you knew the place to look. Zero dings/rock chips anyplace else. Manufacturing facility PPF sheets was put in on that again space close to each rear doorways.
-Ebay mudflaps have been put in earlier this 12 months by me. I assume they work okay?

In brief, spouse says she has ZERO plans to ever return to ICE. Ever. She’d like an X sooner or later, however I could shock her with a 2023 Efficiency Y (Now that Tesla mounted the tough suspension problem) center of subsequent 12 months relying on how far used market continues to drop/impacts resale of this LR Y on used market) and relying on whether or not or not parking sensor functionality is restored by then. She’d love the heated steering wheel (hers was delivered simply weeks earlier than that grew to become a characteristic within the 2021 Y’s) and would def love much more acceleration functionality.
