    Model 3 FSD Upgrade Price is $4,000CAD

    I left this place for a while since Tesla pissed me off when I paid $4k then the next day it was a lot less, Tesla told me they'd honour the lower price, then never did. It wasn't so much about the money, but just feeling like being stabbed in the back by Tesla who I supported whole heatedly...

    Model Y unveiling event 2019-03-14 (official thread)

    My kids are all grown so it's a moot point for me, but when we bought in 2013 the frunk fit a stroller and groceries, and the car seated 7 (admittedly with two who must be small kids). So it seems she had a good question about the size of the frunk to me. I said to her the old large frunk is...

    Model Y unveiling event 2019-03-14 (official thread)

    My thoughts exactly. And my wife said -- open the frunk to see if it holds a stroller because no room in the back with the seats. But I guess those pics will come out soon if people are taking a closer look right now.

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    That's a nightmare area to get in/out -- at the bottom of the cliff unless you use Marine Drive with a speed limit of 30km/hr! -- then there's minimal other parking, lots of residents/guests needing parking because of the crammed residential strata (condo) buildings with not enough guest parking...

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    Agreed! Fortunately, it's a significant project that will take 2 years to complete -- so I don't see it being the place. Again, just throwing out possibilities. It would also be funny if she was right -- so I wanted to put her prediction here too.

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    My wife's comments when I told her SS/White Rock superchargers are coming.... I don't discount the Pink Palace now purchased by Hilton. It closed down around August and is currently undergoing massive renovations which could also technically mean the parking. The parking was certainly overdue...

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    I stayed at Best Western in Revelstoke -- then got hit with an idle charge -- when I was the only one charging there and my meeting went later than expected after I hit 100%. It wasn't worth disputing the $15 charge so I left it to help Tesla out with their mounting debt... ;) Revelstoke, BC...

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    How big is the parking lot here? I need to take a closer look next time I'm close. Tesla also likes to team up with Best Western so perhaps this is also a possibility?: Surrey Hotel | BEST WESTERN Peace Arch Inn| Surrey hotel

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    I'm thinking and hoping that would be the last person to know. It would be great location. I was happy to see Winners was moving in to replace the old Zellers. Superchargers too would sure be nice. I live close by so I will keep an eye out. It's a significant reno so if they are to be...

    Model 3 FSD Upgrade Price is $4,000CAD

    Definitely sounds like the right plan to me! Trying to make sense of what Tesla is up to is like trying to drink from a colander. It's also another example of clear communication by Tesla not only to its customers but to its own staff. (that's sarcasm for those who missed it since it doesn't...

    Model 3 FSD Upgrade Price is $4,000CAD

    If any Canadian who bought EAP but not FSD, and now buys FSD but pays less than the $4k for FSD that I paid yesterday, please let me know. It would be much appreciated. I called Vancouver Tesla and they know about as much as we do. Thanks.

    Model 3 FSD Upgrade Price is $4,000CAD

    Well that's good news except for the "should" get a refund in Elon's tweet. I guess the lawyers got to him given all his past broken promises and lawsuit losses and settlements. I've learned when I buy not to look back, especially with Tesla. If I get a refund great but somehow I doubt it...

    Model 3 FSD Upgrade Price is $4,000CAD

    At $2,700Can with hardware upgrade included, it's not value, it's robbing the bank! I don't see that ever happening (but hope it does and I get a partial refund and new hardware!), and while I really like Elon, his credibility on hardware upgrades being included leaves a lot to be desired given...

    Model 3 FSD Upgrade Price is $4,000CAD

    That's because of the clout of the taxi union here who have strong ties with both the Liberals and now NDP. Too many bought MLAs. Change will come but too many pockets are being lined by the old system, so it will take longer to come. I will be happy to see the taxi industry fall in BC. Ever...

    For those interested, here's what it says when you buy: What do I get with the update? I'll be checking the notes.

    Model 3 FSD Upgrade Price is $4,000CAD

    I bought it. Now I'm just going to put these here so I can look back in a few years and see how my 3 drives itself, compared to the current value of these stocks I didn't buy instead today ($2k of each): Cronos Group Inc. (CRON:CA) $ 28.950.44 | 1.54% Canopy Growth Corp TSE: WEED 62.53 CAD...

    Model 3 FSD Upgrade Price is $4,000CAD

    So now I'm really considering it, especially if it means we will get new hardware if and when required. Then I think, "what! am I nuts, and back drinking the Tesla kool-aid again?". I see nothing about new hardware anywhere being promised when I go to purchase, and we all know no one will get...

    Model 3 FSD Upgrade Price is $4,000CAD

    Damn Tesla dangling low hanging fruit in front of us, that are all flowers but no fruit yet -- only the promise of fruit with no crop season even in sight! Still, they've got me tempted to pay $4k for something that looks like "pie in the sky" and Tesla has shown us FSD videos years ago that...

    Amber Alert Sentry Service

    That's nice but you're fooling yourself if you think we have any. The problem gov't has is not access to legal eavesdropping -- any privacy rights we had left were completely abolished after 9/11 -- including the right to even know about it -- but Snowden showed us that everything we do is...

    Cannot super charge my antique 2013 S (jan build)

    Good then -- nice to have a new charge port since they do wear, especially the locking pin. No problems supercharging my early 2014 S - *knock wood*

    Depreciation on LR RWD

    The problem with EVs and degradation results mainly from the lack of thermal cooling, heat and fast charging -- a lethal combination to lithium ion batteries -- and one that I need to consciously avoid with our Leaf but not with our Teslas. The fist time you supercharge after driving for...

    All I can do is just laugh

    Back in the 70's that makes sense. Now that block heaters and remote starts are common, the reason I keep a spare fob in my pocket when it's -30C out, is because I'm afraid of being locked out. I also keep a tin coffee can and candles when I head out to my cabin in those conditions since you...

    All I can do is just laugh

    But then how did those sedans look and drive compared to your Model 3? (with snow in the trunk if you don't brush it off first -- and keep the brush in the back seat!). Sacrifices have to be made. If you come up with a better looking design, please let us know. Until then, I've dealt with...

    Do you regret buying a RWD Model S?

    They didn't make RWD when I bought my S in 2013; and they didn't make RWD when I bought my 3 in 2018. Both have been great and no regrets at all. Summer of 2014 was great with my S and family -- which I am never getting back. Summer of 2018 was great with our 3 -- my in-laws came from New...

    Locking my Charger- Ideas?

    I can't help you with the lock -- but I installed this retractable cable in my garage and it works great. My wife backs in our 3, and I pull in our S forward, and the charger handle hangs down in the middle, off the floor, and is easily pulled to charge either vehicle: Wall Mount Retractor...

    Should I upgrade cellular antenna from 3G to LTE?

    I don't notice a difference between my early 2014 LTE upgraded S, and my June 2018 3, either with maps, streaming or web browsing. I tell myself I noticed a speed increase when I upgraded from 3G to LTE years ago when the upgrade was first made available in Canada but truth be told, if there...

    Real cost of charging the Model 3?

    Yes, just driving over the border 5 minutes from my house the gas goes from $1.40/ltr in BC ($5.30Can/gallon) to $1.79US/gallon Washington State. We have a carbon tax, transit tax, pay for our "free" medical, etc. so regardless of how low the price goes, we get milked -- with the pun intended...

    Tesla sued for passenger death due to defective battery

    The negligence laws in the US (and Canada), are based on the common-law, that was brought to us from Europe (the UK). So you Europeans are to blame for this lawsuit! ;) The lawsuit won't be about making a car that goes over the speed limit. But it will be about safety and require...

    Tesla sued for passenger death due to defective battery

    Not much different to me than this lawsuit: Daughter of actor Paul Walker files wrongful-death suit against Porsche And like the one above, and the vast majority of lawsuits, it will likely settle before it sees a courtroom. As with most actions, it's not even certain it will go to trial --...

    The Tesla hate is real

    Sorry to hear of the damage, OP. I've read many stories here about vandalism directed towards Teslas in SF bay area plus there was also this bizarre backlash against Tesla with these letters left on Teslas in that area -- better than vandalism but still... Crazy letter left on my windshield...

    Web Browser Doesn't Work

    You'll never get me to admit that. I loved using the browser and did so practically every drive. The NYT headlines greeted me in the morning, or CNN (lite) or Waze, my security cameras show in choppy video -- yes video, on the browser! although some here said it wasn't technically video in a...

    Model 3 review - After moving from RWD to AWD

    The AWD is also LR so the title to this thread is a bit odd. I wonder, though, if people are calling AWD and P shorter range because: I can't help but think the same. Plus, add the aero wheels (which I initially hated but have grown to love), which give the LR another 4.3% in real world...

    Curbed my 3. Underside scratched up. Advice?

    Not thinking, I drove over a large rock on a gravel road going about 50 mph that I thought I would clear but didn't and the bang and scraping noise made with think I did major damage and I almost thought the car would tell me to pull over and get out then burn up on the road, especially since...

    Considering used S 90D, but battery concerns

    Supercharging makes little difference to degradation because of thermal cooling -- unlike the Leaf where fastcharging a hot battery on a hot day with no thermal cooling leads to fast degradation. My early S85 has been supercharged twice most weekends for years and it shows less degradation...

    Review of RWD M3 after Chicago-Breckenridge round trip

    Yes, same here. The problem here is all the gravel they dump on the highways so we can get traction on ice, then as we drive it gets moved to between the lanes. Then a semi in front you goes to pass a slower semi and that debris, as they accelerate to pass and drive over it, becomes shrapnel...

    Review of RWD M3 after Chicago-Breckenridge round trip

    It will be interesting to see the OP's answer but my answer is if you don't know how to drive on snow/ice turn regen to low. If you do know how to drive on snow/ice, and I've driven my RWD S a lot through the snowy mountain passes for the past 5 winters, plus a lot of ICE vehicles, it's not...

    Porsche Mission E

    With the winter weather in full swing here, I'm back to driving my Tahoe hybrid over the mountain passes to my cabin. I much prefer the coffee shop supercharger stop than the gas station fill up. So what if it takes a bit longer. All I really gotta do is live and die, Im in a hurry but dont...

    Porsche Mission E

    Yeah, I get your point. But at the same time, "turbo" is a great word, and belongs more to the instant torque and acceleration of an EV than to be condemned to history along with the slow chugging oil soaked gears of an ICE. And Porsche can't use "insane" or "ludicrous", and making up their own...

    Idle fee at empty Supercharger?

    Wow, people are grouchy over nothing. You won't get me out of a warm bed to move my car from a bank of empty superchargers. That's just pure nonsense. The idle fees should only kick in for the purpose they serve and I'd be out of bed in a heartbeat before I selfishly inconvenienced anyone. I...

    Idle fee at empty Supercharger?

    I got hit with a $15 idle fee at empty superchargers -- other than my car -- in Revelstoke, BC. I was concerned with my car sitting at 100% and wanted to get out of the meeting to get home, and never thought I'd get an idle fee until I was checking on supercharging fees on my account for my 3...

    My 1st accident in 10 years

    Sorry to hear of the accident and I'm glad no one was hurt. But doesn't it have to go into the bodyshop to have the film removed/replaced? I'm also not certain there's no damage otherwise and I don't think you'd really know until the film comes off. I know it's sold as "self healing" but...

    Supercharging Nightmare Begins

    "Real world" requires the courts to interpret Mission Statements should there be a dispute as to corporate governance. You're the one who is not living in the real world if you don't know that. Not all -- and profit need not be the primary purpose. That's been litigated by shareholders and...

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    There's no faster route to the Surrey supercharger than 152nd Street from the border regardless of traffic. Burlington probably has the least things to do of any superchargers I've visited just to warn people. As to the slower charge, very little time would likely be spent above 72 kW unless...

    Supercharger - Surrey, BC

    It kind of has to since the border crossing is in south Surrey (not far from me), then you have to drive through Surrey one way or another to get to Whistler. The 99 through the tunnel, Oak St. Bridge, downtown, Lions Gate Bridge -- is most direct, and thus forget Guildford Mall superchargers...

    Supercharging Nightmare Begins

    That can be said about all companies since no company survives forever. Your point? Of course it does, once it gets off the ground -- and that takes time. Hence Tesla's Mission Statement. But please don't be so quick to forget that Elon was more than happy to take gov't funding (and paid...

    Supercharging Nightmare Begins

    Tesla's Mission Statement must be referenced when determining what benefits Tesla: This mission does not require Tesla itself to survive. In fact, Musk readily admitted years ago on 60 Minutes that he never expected Tesla to survive. It's the mission that was (and still is) the most important...
