    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    I do remember missing out on the July 1st 2018 cut-off and I seem to remember knowing about this before I ordered and being a bit disappointed as the only reason I didn't order earlier was due to me moving house. But for people who didn't know about it and didn't see this info on the order page...

    How are insurance companies at handling claims?

    I just went through a claim with TD, it was much like any other claim. They pushed for me to use their recommended body shops, but I chose one of Tesla's approved ones which had been recommended here a few times. They did the claim estimate with photos rather than in person, and their estimate...

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    I ordered my Model 3 AWD on 5th July 2018, delivered November 7th 2018, I did not get free premium connectivity.

    I was wondering if it would interpret it as a speed limit sign (since they're very similar) or just ignore it, which is what I suspect it will do (I mentioned this in my original post). I guess I will find out as and when I get the update.

    I was wondering how this version of the software would handle it, since it's the topic of this thread.

    I wonder if it will handle this kind of variable speed limit sign: Due to a school the normal limit on this street is 40 km/h, but around the school it's 30 km/h, however that limit only applies between 7am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, between September and June. Presumably due to the smaller...

    Afaik it's a pretty common issue if you park somewhere with no signal. Sometimes rebooting the MCU can help bring it back faster.

    Getting Model 3 onto tow truck?

    Presumably it locked when you walked away from it, so maybe disabling walk-away lock and using the keycard to unlock would have prevented the alarm issue.

    Similar for me, got a ticket over the winter and then had to get new insurance due to a change in circumstances this spring and the price more than doubled from $1100 to $2590 (2018 Dual Motor Model 3, in Montreal on the island). Honestly the quote was pretty shocking at the time, I'm sure there...

    One pedal driving

    I've driven with hold mode and zero regen - cold-soaked battery from -30C/-22F weather - and hold mode still worked to come to a complete stop, even just after starting driving. So I would have to conclude that it does apply friction brakes, if necessary.

    Good portable air compressor for the Model 3?

    I had one and the air compressor on it failed. I returned it for a refund, I did not get another one.

    Bike rack and cargo box rec?

    For my road bike, I have the Yakima HighSpeed, with an optional T-Slot adapter kit (SmarT-Slot Kit 1) and some SKS Lock Cores to secure the bike and rack to the roof bars. I think there are 4 locking points, but the SKS lock cores are just wafer locks so it's not a great deal of security, but...

    If there was a 100 mile range upgrade what would you be willing to pay?

    Winter range in Canada is a bit painful at -30C (-22F), so it would make a big difference for winter road trips. Maybe C$5k (US$3.7k)

    Montreal store during Covid

    I went there for service recently, the store didn't seem open but I'm not 100% certain
