    Any current recommendations for renting a Tesla starting in Copenhagen heading up to Norway and Sweden?

    I am doing a similar road trip, next week and already reserved a Model 3, but would like to change it to a Model Y. Hertz does not seems to have these, and others all advertised it with the "or similar" in the tag line, which has me worried. Did you end up getting your Model 3 at the airport, as...

    Why a Y Needs Mud Guards/Flaps

    You will need the larger ones, 15.75"x9.75", in order to reach the second, inner most, clip.

    Why a Y Needs Mud Guards/Flaps

    Finished the job late yesterday, including PPF install at the bottom of the doors. Happy with the results. Had to cut the front pair, since there is a bump, just above the two clip I struggled to put back the original clips, as they are quite short and the extra couple millimeters the flaps...

    Why a Y Needs Mud Guards/Flaps

    Likewise I thought the "design" left somewhat to be desired for 130$ cdn... So, I went looking for cheaper alternatives, that might just be throwaway, when/if the market brings a more compelling solution. Anyway, I found these cheap (20$ cdn / pair) at my local Canadian Tire. Brand: RoadSport...

    For UK Model S owners : Well, summer 2016 is coming up ... and planning for vacation is under way. Our family is heading to London/Edinburgh in late July, and would consider a Home+Model S swap if someone in the area would like to visit Montreal, Quebec, around the same time. Our home is...

    Canadian CHAdeMO charging

    Yes, no "extra" charges, other than shipping, though FedEx. Sometimes the shipping company dings you a few weeks after the delivery, with their surprise "fees". Like a 25$ brokerage fee to tell you your item has no duty. But it seems FedEx does not play these games.

    Canadian CHAdeMO charging

    I paid $1003 cdn, with the exchange rate of late July. So, not a big difference, but the SC is a ten minute drive from my home. So still worthwhile.

    Homelink very flaky

    I had the problem too, for the first six months. It is Tesla specific as the old remote worked correctly, but not from within the car.

    Inexpensive MS console in black with a black cover is back in stock on eBay

    Yes, they are. It simply is because it was cut off. There is a section of about 2 inches after the deep storage box, that needs to be cut off so it will fit under the screen. And the seller even mentions the same problem I have with the cover not being able to slide more than 2 inches...

    Torque Wrenches are 50% off until Friday at Canadian Tire

    I bought the 1/2" last year and it works great. At 54$, it is a great value. You will need to add a 3 inch extender when using it, as the head does not rotate and you end up with the handle scratching the side panels.

    Annual Service - is the "hardware upgrade" dream finally dead?
