    Has anybody installed roof racks on their Plaid/New LR?

    I just installed my rack earlier today, noticed two issues related to the front mounting points. First of all, the protective film they supplied were nicely concealed at the rear mounting points, but they stick out about an inch on the front. Seeing as I already have full-body PPF, I likely...

    Best charger setup for Canadian winters (can't park in garage)

    We have an indoor wall connector for my Tesla, outdoor wall connector for my wife's Tesla. We also have a 14-50 mounted outside in a weatherproof box. No issues after 4 winters with the outside wall connector. I wouldn't recommend a cable underneath the garage door as a long-term solution; it...

    Agreed, I have a hard time adjusting my braking technique when I drive my wife's Y or a rental, I end up braking too hard and get grief about how I drive 😟

    Banff to Jasper AB to Kamloops in Model S 85D

    We drove from Lake Louise to Jasper proceeding to Kamloops in September 2020 in my wife's X75D. There was no supercharger yet in Jasper and we had to wait for a J1772 charger in town. Our Chademo adapter made the trip easy and fast, we never had to wait to charge. Be sure to visit the High Five...

    where do you go for brake calipers cleaning and lubricant and tire change at the same time?

    KalTire cleaned my brakes, they know what they're doing and are very familiar with Teslas Stanfield in Mississauga, even Kipling in Etobicoke were good.

    Canada Model S Plaid and LR orders and deliveries!

    My Plaid was delivered last November with the P Zeroes, thankfully I ordered PA4 winter tires months earlier and mounted them on the stock 19" rims. If anyone wants to sell their stock 19" rims, please PM me. I'm exploring summer rim solutions but haven't found anything that appeals to me yet.

    Model 3 LR cracked glass, defective?

    I have an appointment this Thursday for my glass issue which my PPF installer pointed out to me last month. He says it's a stress fracture, let's see what Tesla tells me. They are getting worse and worse for taking responsibility for any defects.

    Wiki Mega-consolidated delivery quality issues thread and checklist

    I recently went to my SC and asked for a rear license plate holder as my car was delivered without one. After a brief wait they handed me the holder. To my surprise I now see an invoice for CDN$29 + tax for the item. Ridiculous, I will ignore this.:mad:

    Finally got my car back from PPF treatment; first it was 19 days in Tesla service for a coaxial harness, then 14 days for PPF and tint. I've only actually driven the car for under 2 weeks since I first took delivery of it on November 6th. The PPF place pointed out 2 defects with my car that I...

    Upgraded to Gateway 2, anyone want my old Gateway 1?

    I had my first PW2 installed in 2018, then purchased another PW2 last November. It came with Gateway 2 so when I had the 2nd PW2 installed, I asked to replace my Gateway 1 with the new Gateway 2. Does anyone have any use for a Gateway 1? It was fully functional when it was removed from service...

    I'm envious of all of you with delivered cars.

    Raised Suspension not sticking

    Interesting tidbit, thanks. Searching online it looks to be caused by a fault with an ABS wheel speed sensor. When I brought my car into service this afternoon I asked if that was the problem and they said it was quite likely. Will post my findings when I get my car back, hopefully tomorrow.
