    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??

    We moved from Scarborough to Cobourg 8 years ago. 3 cars. Our insurance on the 3 cars dropped 50%. Currently insuring 2014 Ford Escape and a 2018 Model 3.

    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.

    What to call a MY with Acceleration Boost?

    Possibly nothing? It’s a really clean look.

    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.

    Model 3 trunk more stiff to close

    Just Lube the hinge rotating points occasionally. Easy to see where they are by moving the lid up and down a bit. Any widely available spray lube will do. Use them on your trunk and door hinges as well. These would both work great and last a long time...

    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...

    Anyone else found a snail in their M3?

    No snail here but I understand most EV’s other than Tesla come with the ‘snail pace’ performance package as standard equipment... I think that guy there was just checking out the competition.

    WiFi doesn't automatically re-connect

    Not sure what your saying. Do you mean the Wi-Fi is not re-connecting once you return to your garage? Mine does but it takes a couple of minutes to do so. It loses the LTE after pulling into the garage and a couple of minutes to connect to my house Wifi.

    Model 3 here. Used WeatherTech Floorliners for years and swore by them. Got MaxPiders 3D for the car and they are the best mats I’ve used. Fit and look better than the WeatherTechs.

    Bumper panel gap

    My June '18 build similar and I don't think its an issue as the fender is painted steel and the bumper is plastic. Its not painted metal against painted metal.
