    2022 M3 LR - Rear window goes fuzzy/blurry with defroster ON...

    It's been that way since the very first M3s out 2018.

    Flaky charge port door after latest upgrade?

    Wow! I thought my door was about to break. So it was the software's fault! Please log a bug report using the "bug report" voice command to get Tesla to fix this! The more people that submit, the more likely it'll get their attention.

    Has anyone used the Tesla reccomended body shop?

    Don't just blindly go with the insurance company recommendation! They have no idea what is involved in fixing Teslas! TD Insurance recommended I go to the Mazda dealership! I went with Telsa approved Excellence Auto instead. The job was huge! Over $40K in repairs, but it probably came out...

    Experience with charging on 120V outlet in winter

    My only experience was at an AirBNB near 0C. I wanted to check if it was charging by going into the car and sitting in the driver's seat. Little did I know that this turns on the heating which eats up ALL the power from the plug and the charge rate was 0. Took me a long time to realize I had...

    tesla canada green plate on delivery

    It used to be green. But if you are close to delivery, you should have the contact info of a delivery specialist to confirm.

    What Do YOU Call the Pedal on the Right?

    But diesel fuel is still a liquid. It only becomes gas after combustion.

    How Long to Get Used to Driving M3?

    What? No one mentioned how easy it is to curb rash the M3?! This car's wheels stick out from the side much farther than others (plus the rubber doesn't protect the rims). Many of us curb rashed our cars after delivery. :-(

    Phone key connected

    The connected status on the app indicates whether the BLE is connected. Once connected you can use your app to unlock doors. Vehicle location (and most other functions) is obtained through the internet and is updated only when the car is awake and connected to the internet.

    GTA Car Wash (not detailing)

    Haven't been there since the Before Times, but the Petro Can at Yonge & 7 came highly recommended by car people. https://www.petro-canada.ca/en/personal/gas-station-locations/5-red-maple-road-richmond-hill There used to be no tracks and touchless -- hopefully it's still like that.

    Charged for recall?

    Service dept replies to text via the app much faster than voice calls.

    Is 120v charging enough

    Too many forums keep recommending the 240V 50A upgrade. It is often unnecessary, and in many cases very costly -- as it would have been in my case. It took me a long time to figure out how to convert a 120V 15A circuit to 240V 15A circuit myself but the information is out there if you are able...

    Anyone in colder climes notice full regen when still cold? It's been 8C for the last couple of days here and I got full regen after parking the last couple days and finally driving now.

    Regenerative braking at lower temps?

    If you look closely on your screen rendering of the car, the brake lights will also light up. It's very hard to tell though since it's so small. Tesla should really exaggerate the rendering.

    Can you just use one of the original clips?

    2021 Model 3 Weathertech

    Tuxmat does indeed have great customer service. After being in an accident and losing my retaining pin in the ensuing repair chaos, I e-mailed customer service to see if I could get a replacement. They sent me one right away at not additional cost! Anyway, I've used their M3 mat for 2+...
