    Tesla Model 3 Collision Repair

    Too late haha I already left the car at the CSN Avenue location. I am following what my insurance says and records all of it incase they go back on me. They only gave me a 100/day limit on rental so I am being real stickler.

    Tesla Model 3 Collision Repair

    CSN Avenue is Tesla certified and my insurance prefer them. They did the estimate and will be doing the repair. I tried Velocity in Markham and gave me the same eta (25 days) but CSN Avenue gave me an eta of end of October. I am not stuck trying out all other EVs at rental via EVN Rental.

    Tesla Model 3 Collision Repair

    oh so you are saying, I can lose money now as it will cost me more if I decide to sell the car within the next 3-4 years? And It's better I just buy a new again? I just need to know if I really am losing out on it as here are my numbers: Financed amount is 50,502.07 Used car value via the is...

    sadly my brother didnt click it and the accident was so low impact that it didnt even record it in the dashcam. literally cosmetic damage.

    Tesla Model 3 Collision Repair

    Well I called the police report and they deemed my brother to be at fault so there's that. And he is under my insurance. Will it be better to just sell the car? How about keeping it? Since I am looking into keeping it for the long run anyway. According to the police report, he is at fault and...

    Tesla Model 3 Collision Repair

    Yeah no I don't think that will be enough to cover it. Yeah I am trying to find out more of what happened. But I will really need to go through insurance with that. Specially with the quotes I am getting.

    Tesla Model 3 Collision Repair

    Well it happened. Yesterday my brother got into an accident, borrowing my car. Quote is around 12k-14k to repair. It was just a minor fender bender but this is what happens when you get hit by a big SUV (hard plastic + metal) from the quarter panel (Metal sheet). Barely had it for a...

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    I took a look at my equifax and no hard credit checks. Dont matter for me since I just got mortgage recently so that is the hardest credit check I can get lol.

    Try AHA insurance.

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    I see, Not familiar with abetterrouteplanner but since as per the video, it's real-life usage and not flooring it or anything so I assumed the dual motor is already going to be more impractical than the single motor when I dont even see the need of dual motor and the only true difference that...

    Tint

    I am regretting my XPEL tint. It's too dark on points at night. Wasted 400$ CAD getting it done, I will most-likely going to get it re-done but with ceramic.

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    They were asking why we would go for SR+ over long range, I gave them my reasoning and that is where the incentive goes into play as well. It's just over-all the best value out of all the trims specially if I am financing.

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    Well its an example of the dual motor, consuming more energy.

    Mud flaps included, how about ppf?

    Model Y it seems always come with PPF, Model 3s now only come with Mudflaps

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    Basically, Before my purchase; I went and looked into youtube videos of SR+ vs LR vs other EVs with similar range. SR+ Is either beating the LR both on efficiency and usage per charge, It's crazy as "Long Range" should last longer than SR+ But it looks like dual motors on real world usage ends...

    Bell Home hub 4000 and 2021 Model 3

    I can not reposition as it is cabled in the basement, I may need to call Bell as I am doing renovations in the basement and ask them to maybe put it somewhere else (garage maybe) so we will see. Pods maybe my only hope.

    Bell Home hub 4000 and 2021 Model 3

    Hi, I am familiar with the whole thing but yes my phone can pick up the wifi while in my car but my model 3 is not seeing it at all.

    Rims in Ontario

    The Tesla repair guy told me to buy TPMS only from tesla as they have encountered issues with users using aftermarket TPMS and the headache is not worth it he said.

    Bell Home hub 4000 and 2021 Model 3

    That, I have not checked. Would it matter? That's what I am thinking but yeah I was wondering why it was not seeing my wifi but sees the neighbor. Which is like 2 houses distance across the street from me. The new home hub 4000 modems are a pain to setup my old network from though as it seems I...

    Bell Home hub 4000 and 2021 Model 3

    Hi, Just wondering if anyone have the same setup as me? I just have issue with my model 3 not finding my wifi. Modem is in the basement and Garage is on the other side of the house. My phone picks up the wifi easily but not the model 3. Do I need a closer access point for it to be detected...

    Canadian Model 3 delivery estimates for new orders are already into June.

    This is the fastest order in my experience. The default setup. They may have easier time getting the default aka no changes to order in the whole thing. Really if you want to just get it asap, I would order default. I went with basic and no changes as I figured that this will be easier to get...

    Accessories recomendation for Tesla model 3

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    Yeah I don't know, I will need to try the Model S Plaid to make it feel worth it. For me, It feels like SR+ is best value. Has better real mileage than LR and P version of model 3 is what I am hearing from people. And the acceleration is phenomenal. Literally the acceleration is already insane...

    Oh dude you aren't wrong. I already called around and they quoted me the same on some shops.

    Didn't matter for me. I called around different banks. Was watching my Equifax and it only dinged 1 point for each.

    Wrap VS PPF in GTA

    I'm kinda leaning more towards PPF now. I just have to deal with the price in my head. This is my bumper driving from Vaughan to Oshawa via 407 lol BUGS EVERYWHERE!

    Mud flaps included, how about ppf?

    oh is that what it was for? I'd thought they give us 4 lol

    Canadian Model 3 delivery estimates for new orders are already into June.

    Delivery is great, Not much pressure on how long I was taking going through the checklist, Some minor things and panel issues but so far everything was good. Well, I just told her why my deliveries changed, choke it up to timing and you can say that I was lucky lol I will just call the closes...

    Mud flaps included, how about ppf?

    I just picked up my Tesla model 3 today and I can confirm no PPF but they included 4 mudflaps for each wheel sides

    Wrap VS PPF in GTA

    That's what I am thinking, PPF is expensive for a reason but his offer for below 2k wrap of any color choice is really tempting. I have the pearl multicoat so I am wondering how badly would I need PPF in toronto/ GTA
  42. defsam

    Mud flaps included, how about ppf?

    Hmm interesting, Yeah Ontario here may be different.

    Mud flaps included, how about ppf?

    I called in just now and yes they initially pre-install it per delivery but its jut double sided tape and can be removed easily.

    Canadian Model 3 delivery estimates for new orders are already into June.

    Maybe it helped I picked the most basic, SR+ and default white exterior and default black interior lol

    Wrap VS PPF in GTA

    Hello fellow Canadian Tesla Enthusiasts, Just curious, I spoke with a wrapping store and they said if you live in GTA, It's better to go for a wrap than a PPF since wrap will still protect the car and its way cheaper than PPF in addition to having a multitude of colors to choose from. anyone...

    No PPF afaik, Anyhow I will be wrapping my car.

    Need wheel and tire info

    I am also thinking of keeping my 18 right now for winter and get a sportier (white) winter rim also at 18". I am mostly just using 18" as I heard 19" are rougher than 18".
