    Supercharger - Gaspé, QC

    You need another 2 thing with Chademo: extra time and much patience. It was my Tesla Chademo adapter that let me complete the Gaspe tour last December in my Y. Good thing it was December because I did not suffer any waiting for an available Circuit Electric Charger. Can't imagine doing it in season.

    MCU2 upgrade is CAD $2.6k now?

    What is Tesla selling? The older Intel Atom equipped version MCU2 or newest AMD Ryzen equipped MCU if you are going to go with the cost/time/effort to upgrade seems the AMD Ryzen is most desirable.

    Model Y - Gigafactory Texas Production

    Totally agree with you about FSD. I bought into the Tesla FSD fantasy with my first M3SR+ and back then it was *only* $5000 US (6300 Cdn). Other than enjoying autolane change it was a complete waste of money. Worse was trading it in at Tesla or selling it privately no one offered me any FSD...

    There was a MYLR 2022 white ext/int, 19" with TOW no FSD demo with <50 km from Montreal available all of this morning now gone since I posted this.

    Phantom braking in my new Model Y

    Yes this is true. In my case it is a very consistent phantom braking event on non-divided highway. It's only trucks bigger & taller than pickup trucks that always cause it and if I am not following anyone the only way to not have any hard braking or slow downs is to anticipate the large truck...

    Is it worth getting FSD in Canada?

    Itemized feature sale for Highway Auto Lane Change: $2800 ($2000 US) Rather spend my money on that then power boost. I got used to it on my FSD Model 3 and I find it slightly annoying without on long trips with my Model Y non-FSD.

    Recent heat pump failures - software issue?

    I had front lower louvers freeze and immobilized on my 2017 Volt in 2017. Got check Engine light then read the error code.

    FSD Beta is coming to Canada allegedly in 2-4 weeks time.

    if you are comfortable spending over $12,000 (with taxes) for FSD make sure your decision is based on long term ownership.
