    Mud flaps that don’t have issues in winter?

    Sorry you had such a rough time with it, but glad you got it. I have a model 3 and the only tough issue I had was getting the old plugs out due to sand and ice (I waited until the temp warmed up to the single negative digits). Used hot water in a spray bottle. Just ordered new PPF strips though...

    Mud flaps that don’t have issues in winter?

    on my Model 3 i had a hard time getting the plugs out since it was winter and they were gunked up with snow/ice and sand. used a spray bottle with hot water to melt the ice and rinse the sand off. no issues getting them in though.

    MAD at Tesla - Will have to bring them to court.

    Manitoba, like most provinces, have a safety inspection for vehicles being imported into the province. Things they look for are brakes, lights functioning, holes in the body, etc. They wouldn’t be looking whether it takes regular or supreme fuel, just like they wouldn’t be checking for charging...

    Differences between US vs Canadian Model 3

    Not much difference if any that I’m aware of. Daytime running lights are mandatory here, not sure about the states.

    Mud flaps that don’t have issues in winter?

    Front use existing push pin locations and the hardware comes with longer versions. Rear use two push pin and one screw that screws into the plastic.

    Mud flaps that don’t have issues in winter?

    I originally bought the hard plastic ones from rpmtesla, but they cracked when I was knocking snow and ice from them. Currently have a set from evmudflaps which are made in Quebec where they get a lot of snow. They’re flexible, so snow doesn’t collect as much and it makes it easier to knock the...

    Federal $5k rebate? Did I get it, is my Tesla elegible?

    the Model Y never qualified for the $5K off, not even when they sold the Y Standard range. the only Tesla that ever qualified was the Model 3 SR and SR+, but they haven't since the price changes in Nov 2021.

    New Federal IZEV - does M3 SR+ qualify again?

    Possibly? If the cost is below 70k. Doesn’t hurt to ask your SA

    New Federal IZEV - does M3 SR+ qualify again?

    no, this takes affect after 25 April 2022. but yes you are over the threshold of the 65k limit, but also there isn't a Model 3 currently below the 55k threshold that allows the 65k to be considered. It used to be 45k with a top end of 55k, which i managed to use with my SR+ back in Sept.

    Tesla recommends cleaning and lubricating all brake calipers every 12 months or 20,000 km

    I looked up their channel and didn’t see anything regarding brake cleaning

    "Trading in" your old Tesla for a new one.

    I’m in Manitoba, but I think what you’re looking for is an RST refund (retail sales tax). I had to pick up and buy my Tesla from Saskatoon where they didn’t charge me the PST portion, only the GST. When I registered it in Manitoba a couple days later, I had to pay the PST portion. Then I applied...
