    BC and (new) Referral Program

    Correct. The owner with the referral code (referrer) isn't eligible for any of the owner referral program rewards &/or prizes. The promotion for the buyer (new owner) will receive the incentive to purchase.

    Insurance in BC

    I just did the estimate for my P3D coming up for renewal next month and my quote for basic went down by a whole three bucks, yup only $ 3 down. Got the maximum -43% discount (20 years safe driving). $1,265 vs last year $ 1,268.

    BC and (new) Referral Program

    Likely this week or next. Your tesla.com address is mailing only. If you've registered & insured your car in BC, you're considered a resident of BC. I believe Tesla has now figured out those using the mailing address workaround & removed it to comply to the BC laws. A local Tesla owner has...

    BC and (new) Referral Program

    Those purchasing a Tesla in BC are permitted to use an owners referral code and earn a promotional benefit under BC law (free supercharging credits) and permitted by the Vehicle Sales Authority of BC. Those credits to those owners that were inadvertently removed will been returned. Referral...

    Can't disclose anything at this point. I'm hopeful that Tesla will be able to make it right & we should know later this week.

    FYI: Tesla Owners of BC and Vancouver Island are in communication with Tesla about this issue and expect owners will receive a communication from them likely later this week. Thank-you for your continued patience.

    Tesla got a few VIN # provided to them from our club and the Vancouver Island club with our Tesla escalation support request. Hopefully we will hear good news & its just a glitch.

    Vancouver, BC Model 3 SR+ Subwoofer installation?

    Ask to see the lighting mods for the Telus Model X's. :D Very cool stuff. Good luck.

    Vancouver, BC Model 3 SR+ Subwoofer installation?

    I would give RPM Electronics in Burnaby a call. They've had extensive experience with some mods on Teslas. They have installed a few things for me including dash cams and the lighted applique on my prior S's and my X.

    Insurance in BC

    Not really. If you have existing optional insurance and trading in, double check your policy, it may cover it already until you can do it. Also with Belairdirect (and I assume others) you simple call in after you get your new plate and ICBC registration # and activate and pay (assuming you've...

    Insurance in BC

    I've had good experience with Belairdirect and they do give a further discount if you have multiple cars. Note: If you're total price is > $123,000. High deductibles and premiums will trigger. For optional insurance this is what I was quoted for a Model 3 today when checking around: Company...

    BC Scrap-It EV Incentive Program - $3000

    Not sour at all, not really fair. Should be by vehicle (which I guess is by manufacturer). Its per Dealer. Tesla is being considered a single dealer here. I did a quick search and see 18 Chevy dealers within 100 km of downtown Vancouver. So the Bolt for example has 180 allocated perhaps. So if...

    BC Scrap-It EV Incentive Program - $3000

    Foll Yea. So I just followed up on this. The allocation is 10 cars per year. :eek: So 2018 used up. 10 more available in 2019 if funds available. So sad. :(

    BC Scrap-It EV Incentive Program - $3000

    Well this is disappointing news. I'm wondering if the people who ordered and expecting delivery went through the process and consumed up all the allocated incentives for Tesla.

    BC Scrap-It EV Incentive Program - $3000

    Hi Yoshii, First welcome to TMC. The Vancouver Tesla delivery center should be able to submit the claim once deliveries begin. A few people have reached out to the BC SCRAP-IT Program administrators and got some mixed responses, but here is mine:

    Model X Crash on US-101 (Mountain View, CA)

    Perhaps 1 more way (and it does happen to me on occasion): 4) holding the wheel to keep the car travelling straight. If auto-steer suddenly tries to veer it'll be disengaged pretty much immediately as well.

    most Model S and X after April 1,2018 will cost consumers 6-11% more!

    No. It's total price. Extra warranty and accessories that can be sold separately are a few things excluded.

    most Model S and X after April 1,2018 will cost consumers 6-11% more!

    Yea its not amusing many. And no surprise the new car dealers association (NCDA) doesn't like it. From '25 per cent is a big number': B.C. luxury car dealers brace for impact of new surtax | CBC News So does one conclude NCDA thinks electric vehicles above 77k are just a luxury and that other...

    most Model S and X after April 1,2018 will cost consumers 6-11% more!

    I wish I could. Say the lease is $2,750 /month for the bare bones example I've given. Previously the total with tax was $ 3,162.50. Now payments after April 1, 2018 is $ 3,465.00. $275.00 more PST and $27.50 more GST.

    most Model S and X after April 1,2018 will cost consumers 6-11% more!

    British Columbia's new luxury tax increase will cost most consumers 20.75% for 125k to under 150k and 26% for above 150k. That's a 6% increase for a basic Tesla and 11% for a Performance trim. Ouch. The BC Government thinks paying an extra 6 to 11% on such purchases are affordable to those...

    Insurance in BC

    Replacement insurance indeed covers inflation and deprecation. So now that the tax increases it'll be covered. I'm surprised you're rate is so slow. I'm paying 4k just for optional without replacement.

    Yes, a reminder this is about insurance in BC where we don't have much choice. :( Note: The performance models have a 100% premium on basic insurance (e.g. double of regular premiums!). Optional insurance is limited and now they seem to be following the same hit. Talking to my owner advisor...
