    Can you tell me exactly how you do that?

    Blind Spot Monitering - After Market

    Just leave your rear view camera on all the time. It's almost 160 degrees wide angle, so captures anything in your blind spots. Just have to get used the fact that objects are closer than they appear. After one year of using this, I find it painful to drive any of my other cars. I keep on...

    Depends how aggressive of a winter tire you want. R2 would be best for more extreme winter days, and the other two would probably drive better on the average cool but not slippery day. I got the R2's because I wanted maximum traction when it's bad out, but with the last winter being mild it had...

    Congratulations. Nice colour combo. Is that a small model of the X you are holding in the first pic?

    Canadian Price Increase Imminent

    How is this possible? Sport Utility - 2016 Tesla Model X SIGNATURE P90D in MONTRÉAL, QC $140,000 Model X P90DL for sale in Montreal with 547km on it. Only $140,000!!! Is this a scam?

    Cross Border Lease

    A friend of mine leased an Audi A8 from the US a few years ago. But he needed a US licence and US registration. Fortunately he had dual citizenship and frequently traveled back and forth. It was a headache and insurance was a grey zone if anything had happened. Not worth the hassle.

    My Tesla was Broken into - Dash Cam Footage Leads to Arrest

    Great story. Thanks for sharing your unfortunate experience. I'm forwarding this video to all my friends. Btw, I have a Thinkware F750 Dashcam which I think is as good if not better than the Blackvue. Similar features but is 1080P on the rear cam vs 720P on Blackvue.

    Canadian parts prices.

    Last September I purchased 4 TPMS sensors for close to $50 each from Vancouver. Was a bargain considering the Canadian dollar at the time. Now they appear to have gone the opposite way. I just purchased 4 more for $75 each ($70 for the sensor and $5 for the silver or dark sleeve).

    "Blind Spot Detection is disappointing"

    I agree with the majority regarding the useless blind spot sensors, but the Tesla's have one advantage.... Running the rear view camera all the time. I leave my rear view cam on the top portion of the center screen all the time. It's a great Blind Spot Detector.

    Alberta Tesla Buying Experience

    I can understand your frustration, Edmonton Buyer. Most of the sales force at the Calgary Store probably know less about the car than you do. I've been there a few times and the few people I talked to were clueless. My brother in law (a hard core Tesla fan) had applied for a sales position but...

    Flood of inventory cars has replaced CPOs in Canada and US

    This is just like what happened last year to my brother when he got his 85D. Tesla prices cars based on when they are ordered. So right after the significant price increase last August, all of Tesla's inventory cars were still at the old price(almost $10k lower). So my brother got a new 85D...

    Tesla Quietly Discontinues the 85 kWh Battery Option in Canada

    I got my 90D in mid September and my brother got his 85D in early October. We both have a similar amount of Km's on our cars (close to 10k km) and take similar care of them. His 90% charge is 386km and mine is 401km. His 100% charge is 430km and mine is 448km. Given that his car is rated for...

    Welcome Skrenes, Noticed you too have TSW Bathurst wheels. Are they your summer or winter wheels? Do you have pics of your car with them on? Curious to see how they look on Red. Thanks.

    To those of you who are familiar with Edmonton's chargers, I looking for some advice for a future trip. On Feb. 19-21 I will be in Edmonton to attend a course that is being held at the Marriott River Cree. Unfortunately that hotel has no charging infrastructure other than a few parking lots...

    Tesla Owners in Alberta

    Exactly. All they need to know is that the car is disabled. The main thing is that if any of us have mechanical/electrical failure far outside of Calgary, the 80km Tesla tow is not going to cut it.
