    Supercharger - Orangeville Ontario

    I visited Orangeville a couple of times yesterday. This is a great site with lots of good stuff close by. I was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting worse from some of the prior comments I read. 251 kw baby! This my second visit to a 250 kw charger and the first time I actually...

    Maximum Charge of 40kW from 3 different SC's

    I experience similar. If I take a 30 minute drive to a supercharger when it is cool out the speed is very slow and doesnt get much faster. I have taken a couple trips from Toronto to Quebec City in very cold conditions (-20 c) and charging is fast. I am fine with this. In therory we...

    Supercharger - Orangeville Ontario

    I am sooo happy to see this charger. I make the trip from Toronto to Paisley often. When I bought my car back in 2018 the plan for this site was one of the deciding factors. To comfortably make it to and from I was forced to swing north to Port Elgin. Now I won't need too. So excited...

    Wiper blade replacement in Canada

    Both wipers. I believe they are 28"s. You trim to size.

    Maximum Charge of 40kW from 3 different SC's

    My guess is the battery is cold. I see 51 F on the display. At this temperature the battery needs significant warming before you can expect the higher charge rates. When I first got my car I had exactly the same problem. The charger was about 10 miles away but not far enough to heat the...

    Tesla Free super Charging changed to pay per use without notice

    Go into your Tesla Phone App and 'Schedule Service'. Select 'Other'. Explain the issue. Attach a copy of your original Order Agreement dated on or before September 18th, 2018 (I think this was the official end date of the FUSC program). If you don't have your order agreement you can find...

    Performance Rear Brake Servicing - Questions

    Thanks! I have never seen this before. Is it a brembo thing?

    Performance Rear Brake Servicing - Questions

    I put the car in towing mode and unplugged the caliper. I worked on it for over 20 minutes and towing mode remained on. It is odd the car would disable towing mode after 20 minutes. What would happen if you were actually towing?

    Performance Rear Brake Servicing - Questions

    I think I answered my own question. There are no caps. I suspect the rubber is tight enough around the slider pin to create a seal. The following image shows the bottom slider without a cap (Left-hand side) The top one has a cap. I will keep an eye on them...

    Performance Rear Brake Servicing - Questions

    I serviced my brakes as part of my winter tire swap. I did notice something I am a bit concerned with. The bottom sliders on both sides have no caps. Both tops have caps. When I noticed the first missing I thought it had fallen off. But both are missing? I checked the parts catalog and...

    Tesla Free super Charging changed to pay per use without notice

    I had exactly the same problem. Order date is relevant, not delivery date. Email or phone and have a ticket opened regarding the issue. In my case it took a couple of weeks but they fixed it.

    Performance Model 3 Snow Tires/Rims

    Sweet looking car. I have a soft spot for black. The silver looks great. I have exactly the same setup with black rims. They performed perfect last year. There is no noticeable noise difference and I found the energy usage drastically improved compared to the 20s. I recommend this...

    I was thinking of getting the trial too. I will hold off now. I am not unhappy with Slacker. I would think the 90 day free trial premium account would work fine?

    Outrageous $5000 repair bill after warranty expire!

    19.5 hours to re and re the AC seems like a lot. Usually shop times listed per component don't take into consideration reduction in time by replacing several of the components at the same time. For example, if you were to start from scratch replacing an AC hose would be 1.5 hours as per the...

    Questions about charging on a long road trip

    A better route planner will optimize your charges to take the least amount of time. The charge rate starts to drop off at 40-50% quite significantly. ABRP is quite good at estimating but can be off if you run into rain or a headwind or temperatures are lower than expected. 10% is probably...

    Model 3 catches fire after hitting a stopped tow truck in Moscow (video)

    Likely Tesla will come out with a statement about the accident. My money is on AutoPilot not being engaged. Right now we only know what the driver said. I don't believe that the car aggressively braked hard enough before the accident. Mine tries to put me through the windshield when it...

    LTE lost in underground parking. How to Recover?

    The cell signal is strong when I leave the underground. If I reboot it comes back in a couple of minutes. I think that the car backs off the continual connection retries after a while. Maybe then it only tries it every 20 or 30 minutes. Just a theory. I can try a wifi hotspot but don't...

    LTE lost in underground parking. How to Recover?

    Most working days I park my car 5 floors underground. The building has charging facilities on level 5. Understandably there is no LTE. My issue is getting the LTE back after spending the day disconnected. Life without live traffic and streaming sucks. If I wait for it to reconnect after...

    P3D+ spoiler in Canada

    It was in for a few things. The headlights were out of alignment from day one. I manually lowered one myself to avoid being continually high beamed but wanted them set properly. Also, the dash pad had bubbles on it. They replaced the dash. I got an older p85 loaner out of the deal. That...

    P3D+ spoiler in Canada

    I got lucky. :-) When my car was in for service they had a spoiler. Funny way to do business. If they truly are distributing them by VIN then I should not be able to show up and get one. Sorry if I took your spoiler ;-) It does seem to have some fairly significant gaps at the ends. I...

    P3D+ spoiler in Canada

    Who is still waiting for their spoilers? When did you take delivery? I too delivery November 3rd 2018. 255 days and counting. I did contact service and was told they are being distributed by VIN. (109xxx). I do have a service appointment friday. Maybe I will get lucky. :-).

    P3D+ owners.. how often do you mash the pedal at stoplights?

    I mash the pedal when giving test drives or 'luring' unsuspecting ICE vehicles into a bit of competition off a stop light by edging them a bit and then allowing them to catch up some. For some reason, I get a thrill out of hearing them thrash their car in an attempt to get past my silent...

    Something Is Rolling Around Between My Battery And Floor Pan!

    Thanks! It has been found! It was exactly where you said it would be. It would have taken me years to find it without you. So it wasn't actually between the battery and the floor pan. It was between the carpet and the floor pan. The interesting thing is that there is enough clearance...

    Something Is Rolling Around Between My Battery And Floor Pan!

    I have a weird issue. Something is rolling around on top of my battery tray. When I corner hard you can hear it roll from one side to another. It settles on one side for a while and rattles around. When I corner hard the other way it rolls back. At first, I thought it was a nut or...

    Federal EV coming this budget 2019

    I suspect in the future that Tesla would offer upgrading. Intially it wont be offered to deter buyers. I just can't see Tesla ignoring any potential revenue stream. That being said I would not purchase a car with this expectation.

    Congrats! I just did some vacationing in Mexico and was thinking how nice it would have been to have my Model 3 there. The speed limits seemed somewhat non-existent and the roads very open. Enjoy!

    Musk promises AP will be able to avoid potholes

    It might be possible to detect and store the geo location of the pot hole. The first tesla would hit it and then none after. This is a feature tesla definitely wants. It will reduce warranty claims and repairs.

    Navigant: GM Cruise, Waymo Lead Tesla And Others On Full Autonomy

    Federal EV coming this budget 2019

    How many people would live with 150km of range when they can get another 200km for 5k? That 150km of range may go down to about 90km in the winter. I think Tesla would get it's money.
  37. S

    Federal EV coming this budget 2019

    True, the extra range could then be offered at point of sale or optionally after.

    Federal EV coming this budget 2019

    I think getting under 45K would be fairly simple. Offer a software locked SLR (Stupidly Low Range) version for 5k less. Say a 150 km range. Allow the Consumer to upgrade after the sale to the 354km range for 5K. They could do this before or after they receive their rebate. I doubt there...

    Been on chill mode for the winter...

    I tried chill mode a couple of times. I did not like it. When it snows I just chill my foot. Good tip about the battery. That is something really easy to check. That should be part of the maintenance schedule.

    Supercharging not so super

    Super Charging is very super! Last weekend I took a trip from the Toronto area to Quebec City and back. I saw charge speeds of 770 km/hr at 117 kW. The temperatures ranged from -6C to -24C. I was very impressed. We did need to stop every few hours but the stops were quick. Very little...

    Slow super charging speed

    I too am from the Toronto area and have seen the same. I went to a local supercharger (about 20 km away) when it was about +5C out and saw a charge rate of about 20kw. My SOC was 70%. I really didn't need the charge. I was waiting for the wife so I plugged in. I was shocked to see how...

    I find the M3’s rear visibility poor

    I feel exactly the same way. I am coming from a Golf as well. I have driven coupes before and don't remember the visibility being this bad. Maybe it is simply that way for all coupes. The hatchbacks do have great visibility.

    Tire pressure system needs service after tirerack snows

    Did you only do one drive? I just put after market sensors in my model 3. The first drive I got the same message. I thought I had an issue. On the second drive...about 5 minutes in it asked the rim size. All has been good since. If that doesnt work phone tire rack. The sensors may...

    Vision difficulty when driving in rain

    I have used RainX. Not on a Tesla yet. It is wonderful stuff. Anything over about 40 mph and you simply don't need the wipers. It would be interesting to learn what the auto wipers would do. The water beads and rolls up the windshield. Would it be enough to trigger the sensors? Some...

    Performance Upgrade Price Change!

    I am in the same boat. I ordered a Performance Model 3 on June 30th and still don't have it after multiple delays. I was credited for the white seat price drop. I expect this will be the same. I will push to retain the free supercharging and get the price drop. I have been rescheduled...
