    Canada - FSD rollout

    I’ve been using FSD for 8-10 days or so now. There is one consistent error. Every time I enter a lower speed zone ie: I’m doing 80km and pass a sign for ‘50 begins’ the car doesn’t slow down. Instead of it using regen/brakes to decelerate it just coasts. So every time I enter a lower speed zone...

    Canada - FSD rollout

    Opted in. A week later after driving embarrassingly slowly and leaving gaps a bus could fill I ended up at 96%. Mostly following to closely followed by apparently aggressive cornering and hard braking. Opted out for a day or two, Safety Score disappeared and then I opted back in successfully...

    No front end PPF DC/NOVA - regrets?

    You really only need PPF on the front bumper. Buy a pre-cut kit, do the work and you won’t regret it. I also would include the headlights and fogs as well.

    Powder coated paint done on your brake calipers

    These guys specialize in calipers. Basically all they do. I used them for my track car over the years for calipers rebuilds. Complete disassembly, sandblasting and powder coating. Superior to paint. http://www.midwestcalipers.com/index.html

    Is the 2021 red brighter then past models?

    They look great brand new especially if inside under the showroom lights. Kinda like diamonds at a jewelry store. I love the look of MC red. It looks great when new and if it’s kept clean and polished just like the black. I was considering it as well but after seeing a few aging MC red Model S’s...

    Condensation in headlights - left light stays on

    No need to be nervous about the replacement. I have a very early LR 3 that had the LED signature light failure issue. Had 2 drivers side headlights replaced and 1 passenger side. New part # versions were installed each time. The last one was done by mobile service in my garage. Took about 1/2...

    Any good examples of Tesla Wall Connector installed between garage doors?

    I have exactly 17 1/2” between the rails and 15 1/2” between the side wings I built. However I have the earlier Tesla wall connector that has the thicker, less compliant cable capable of 80 amps. The newer wall connectors have the thinner, more compliant cable capable of 48 amps. It will...

    The fixed 4 piston front Brembo calipers are aluminum while the single piston rear slider caliper brackets (carriers) are most likely steel. As Tony said they hold paint differently.

    Hi, Here are some pics of my install. You use the stock Tesla front plate holder. I requested mine to not be attached to the car when new but it’s pretty easy to remove if it comes attached. They include drilling template for drilling the holes in the Tesla plate holder to attach the arms to...

    Should PPF look OK from 5 feet away?

    That a really bad job. Poor application of a pre-cut pattern. Dirt is going to get under all those exposed edges and look terrible. Using a pre-cut pattern is fine. It’s the installation of it that’s bad. I would want a refund and go somewhere else.

    Any good examples of Tesla Wall Connector installed between garage doors?

    I used readily available 1” x 6” lumber for the wings. I attached a piece of rectangular strapping running down one edge of the 1 x 6 with screws to give me a way to screw it to the wood frame that secures the door track. Had to leave gaps where the track attaches. Here’s a couple of closeups:

    Any good examples of Tesla Wall Connector installed between garage doors?

    Here you go. As you can see I installed side ‘wings’ to contain the cord and keep it away from the tracks. The box above it the emergency shutoff switch. Required if the fuse panel is not in the garage:

    Y would be a great young family car if your ok with the RWD and standard range. I have a 3 but my wife has a Ford Escape. If we go down to 1 vehicle it will be a Y.

    Tesla auto insurance premium varies greatly between different postal code??

    Windshield wiper fluid

    I second the CTC Reflex brand. This one in particular. It’s rated to -49 and comes in a large 9.5 litre bottle. I use the big bottle to fill a couple smaller ones: https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/reflex-ice-defence-windshield-washer-fluid-49c-9-46-l-0290002p.html#srp

    Best aftermarket dash strip to replace OEM wood (with pics...hopefully)

    Thats actually one of the reasons I bought the TSportline dash cap. I liked that the grain was in the same direction as the OEM carbon fibre grain on the model S and X dash. Top left to bottom right. Its also the only CF in my interior so no issue for me.

    Ontario electricity billing change: TOU or tier for EV charging?

    Exactly. Even retired, staying home and charging overnight. I was consistently paying a smaller total bill YOY compared to the Covid 24/7 fixed TOU rate months. Corrected for variances in monthly YOY charging amounts. It’s the overnight charging at the low off-peak rate that makes the difference.

    New Model 3 Sport wheels

    I don't like the 'new' Sport wheels at all. Too 'Slipstream' looking for me. Hate the flat wide wheel edge.Yes, probably better aero but if you want better aero just stick with the dinner plate 18's.

    Rear Window Full tint problems and negative experience at oakville tesla

    My take on it is that any aftermarket add-on, and most have at least some, is at our own risk. I just had my passenger side headlight replaced under warranty (Model 3 early build known issue). I also had the drivers side replaced within a month of delivery back in 2018. They both had...
