    Should track mode 100% regen be stronger than normal driving?

    Not to revive a dead thread, but I found this while looking for something else, and noticed that he numbers for regen listed here do not seem to align with what I have in a telemetry file for a track session from August 2021. Im my telemetry file, I have max power level at about 413 kW (@ 90%...

    How does Track Mode behave at 100% SoC or below 10% SoC?

    I'm planing out some HPDE track sessions for spring, and trying to figure out if/how I can pull it off with my M3P. My local-is track (Calabogie Motorsports Park in Ontario, Canada), offers half day packages with three 25 minute instructional track sessions with a 25 minute break in-between...

    LFP battery in Model 3

    The incentive is getting LFP now, vs. waiting until 2022 for a NCA SR+. LFP cars are starting to show up in inventory, as per Tesla email.

    I was within 90 days. 77 days to be exact.

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

    Signature changed! Yeah, that's a lot of protection, but car detailing is a fun hobby of mine. I really enjoyed doing all that. For me, my M3P is more special, it is my "fun" car. I will also probably keep it 8-10 years as well. I will not go easy on it though. I will be autocrossing it...

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    That's interesting. I had been approved with the 2.30% from BMO almost three months before delivery. Just over 36 hours before delivery, My tesla account reverted back to "Credit Decision Pending". The next morning, I received an email saying that I had a financing offer to review, and it was...

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

    We'll see about hoe much I travel with it; I'm on vacation for July, so I'll have time to go places. I actually haven't driven it very much since I received it; I've been spending my evenings doing detailing and paint + interior protection. My neighbours think I'm nuts. I keep getting asked...

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

    For me it was about 45 minutes after inputting information in the account website. Super easy.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Comparing with 911s would leave buyers of almost any car disappointed. But that's a really expensive car compared to a M3P, so I'd expect better. My new Tesla is not 100% perfect (but pretty darn close), but it is as good or better than the two other new cars I've bought I the past 20 years (a...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Today marks my official exit from the waiting room, after almost three months. The car is awesome. Well worth the wait. I'm not new to EVs, so the regen and linearity of the acceleration felt familiar, but this is so much better than any other EV I've owned or driven. You might think you can...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I don't know about that. My car arrived 5 days before my delivery appointment, and they were fine with that and did not ask to change the date.

    Might be worth checking for cars in inventory. There are quite a few M3Ps in inventory right now. https://ev-tsla.com is a good tracker.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    In reality, it's more like 1 OR 11 weeks. If you are lucky, and order a configuration that is not allocated to an order and are close enough to California that it can be delivered by the end of the month, you could have it in a week. Otherwise, you're looking at September.

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    As expected, my financing was updated this morning, 24 hours before tomorrow's delivery (I got the email asking to review and accept terms). No change in rate, still the same 2.30% for 72 months from BMO that I had gotten in early April when I applied. The only change was a slight adjustment...

    Forced to reject my M3 SR+ today, using this as a learning experience

    I would not mind the frunk issue too much, but there was mention of two panels with dust in the paint, which would be more concerning. If it was severe enough, I might do the same.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    My delivery appointment is not until Saturday morning, but I new my car arrived at Tesla Ottawa on Tuesday, so I decided to go have look today since it was really nice weather-wise and I had the evening free. The car looks pretty good. Panel gaps are not perfect, but no worse than my two...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    They just added the appointment to my account page with no other communication. I had the appointment without a VIN. I reached out to my SA once I saw the appointment there and he gave me the VIN. Don't know about final payment, I financed everything except for the $2500 order deposit so I...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I my case, I got a delivery appointment as soon as it left Fremont, but Tesla did not communicate the VIN officially until much later (likely when it crossed the border into Canada). It arrived at the location Monday evening and my delivery appointment is Saturday, so they have lots of time to...

    Brake Dust Brand New Model 3 (Help)

    Check to see if the rotor is hot after a highway drive without much braking. If it is, the calliper is probably sticking. Not only is that bad for the brakes, it also reduces your range a lot.

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

    That's pretty common here in Ontario. I have it for 5 years on my policy. It's less than $100/year, so it's pretty much a no-brainer. It's not true replacement however. If the car is a total loss in the first 5 years, the insurance pays out exactly the amount on the original bill of sale. So...

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

    I emailed my SA to ask for the Bill of Sale, and I got confirmation that my car has arrived at the Ottawa location. They're doing the inspection, prep, plates and licensing and confirmed my appointment for Saturday morning. I think it might be ready earlier, but I didn't push for an earlier...

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

    My delivery appointment appeared the next day, but was set more that two weeks in the future. I got the Teslavision and VIN in source code on the 3rd of June, and a delivery appointment for June 19th appeared on the next day. It took over a week after the for the VIN to appear officially on...

    Lucky west coasters with your short shipping time from Fremont. For us out East, its 2+ weeks between the Tesla Vision acceptance and delivery.

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

    The White SR+ with black interior are very high volume since they are the cheapest option, and there are lots of people looking to get a new Tesla at the lower cost possible. People willing to spend $17,000 more for an LR (12k for the car and 5k in federal rebate eligibility), likely aren't too...

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

    I know of someone who pick his up in Ottawa recently and had the same thing happen. It looks like Tesla staff (not sure if local or in California) need to re-confirm the details in their system before delivery, and with the really high volume, sometimes errors happens. I think in that case the...

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    If more than 30 days has elapsed since approval, they will revise the rate a few days before delivery. This might coincide with a delivery appointment being set. They also adjust other fees at that time. When my delivery appointment was set, the amount for licence fee was reduced by $20. As...

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

    That's how it works, especially for the low volume LRs and Ps. Deliveries are in the last 3 weeks of the quarter. Unless you find one in inventory or a demo, you're likely looking at September. You can look at inventory here: https://ev-tsla.com

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

    More than a week after having a delivery appointment appear on my account page, the VIN finally showed up on there as well (it was in the source code for over a week, but not on the actual page). I stopped by the Brrhavel location this morning to see if my car had arrived, but I did not see it...

    Spotted! Who is waiting for a Y or a 3 in Ottawa/Montreal?

    I stopped by the Ottawa Tesla delivery centre this morning, hoping that my car had potentially came off the delivery truck recently. Unfortunately, mine was nowhere to be seen on the lot, although two MSM M3P with VIN only a few digits off from my white one were there. There was also a M3P in...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    In Canada, it's pretty well documented that if you order a M3P, it will arrive in the last two weeks to the quarter, regardless of when you ordered.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    It's random and all over the map. Could be in your account page, could be an email or text. Or it may never show up at all despite being assigned. I got a delivery appointment without ever having been notified of VIN. I emailed my SA and he gave it to me. I've had the appointment for a week...

    Could the M3P Stealth be back? Inventory listing of M3P with 18" Aero wheels.

    Spotted this in inventory in Montreal, Canada. M3P with 18" Aero wheels. No image available, because presumably Tesla does not have a rendering of that configuration for 2021. Web listing error or unicorn?

    Mine is 984, was built in early June and is in transit crossing North America to get to me.. I've seen a 988 as of today.

    Tire puncture repair - Ottawa

    Kal Tire is a sponsor of the Tesla Owners Club of Ontario, so I sure hope they know how to service a Tesla tire :)
  36. TheRFMan

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

    Considering that it's heading to Montreal, "no time" is more like "10-14 days" in transit :) Mine was build before yours (VIN 984xxx), but it's still somewhere between Fremont and Ottawa, with a delivery date a week away. I suspect it could probably be here sooner based on build dates of cars...

    Tesla had announced the were modifying the referral program a little while back. I guess it's happening.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I've had a delivery appointment for a week (essentially since the day after the car was built), but still no VIN on the official account page. It's in the source code and my SA emailed it to me as well, but the account pages are all over the map. Still no bill of sale either. I never received...
  39. TheRFMan

    How does Tesla choose who gets their car first?

    I highly doubt it. Usually, the appointments are set before the cars even arrive. My car had barely left Fremont when I got my appointment. Some people have had success moving their delivery up if the car arrives earlier.
  40. TheRFMan

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

    I have that same coverage. No chip though, just an extra $65/year, waived depreciation for 5 years. Insurer is Gore Mutual in Ontario.

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    For those who are seeing an increase from 2.3 to 2.35, is this with Scotia, RBC or BMO? I was approved at 2.3% with BMO back in April, but I'm not sure if BMO has increased. At the time they were slightly lower than the others.
  42. TheRFMan

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

    The system is all over the place. I have a delivery appointment (I was not asked to book, it just appeared), but still no VIN on my account page. SA confirmed VIN by email though. I might also have the record for the furthest out delivery appointment: it was added to my account on June 4th...

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    Ha! It'll be 85 days from order to delivery for me! But at least I have a VIN and delivery appointment.
  44. TheRFMan

    How does Tesla choose who gets their car first?

    In Canada, financing approval is valid for 90 days, so no issues there. I made sure to apply within 90 days of June 30th to avoid any problems. I have no additional payment to make. Rates are so low, I chose to finance the entire amount (aside from the $2500 order payment I paid in late March)
  45. TheRFMan

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    Not 100% correct. If you take delivery with 30 days of financing approval, the rate you had at approval stands.
  46. TheRFMan

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

    If it's in Chicago now, I would not be surprised if it arrives by the end of the week. It's only 2 days by truck from Chicago.
  47. TheRFMan

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

    Yep. M3P White on White. Delivery appointment set for June 19, SA confirmed that the car is in transit.
  48. TheRFMan

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

    I guess statistically speaking, they are confident that at least a few orders will be cancelled.
  49. TheRFMan

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Comparing with Q1 orders, I'd say they're actually moving faster, at least for us Canadians. There were quite a few people last quarter with mid-month builds and cars arriving on the last 3 days of the month.
