    Do any Model 3 car covers works over the Tesla roof rack?

    I have a car cover that was specifically made for the M3 and it goes over the roof rack fine. I believe the brand is Bourge or something similar

    2020 M3 LR is very soon out of full warranty. Should I keep it?

    Just under 80,000 kms in less then 3 years so my basic warranty is almost over. The car has been great with the exception of the suspension/rattle issues that have been basically replaced on all 4 corners;) Would like to hear from folks who have Model 3's out of warranty and what their...

    2020 M3 Warranty almost over-independent check?

    Very thorough check by Cyril. Noted that all four door handles had the chrome starting to peel off from the underside. Suspension knuckle that was supposedly replaced by Tesla tech was not. Passenger door clicking when opening and closing. Booked appointment with SC and expect these all to be...

    2020 M3 Warranty almost over-independent check?

    It is blended in with a brake fluid replacement , filter cabinet replacement , desiccant filter replacement, wiper replacement so I don’t know the inspection cost at this point.

    How do you know when brake fluid flush is needed?

    I have 75,000 kms on my 2020 M3 and it has been suggested by an independent Tesla mechanic that it is a good idea to perform a brake fluid flush. The car is just under 3 years old and no issues with the brakes. Are folks doing this as a matter of preventative care? Is it something that should be...

    2020 M3 Warranty almost over-independent check?

    I have a little over 75,000 kms so am thinking about having a Tesla centric mechanic take a look at my car now to see if anything is soon to fail etc. Have folks been doing this ? I know people have mentioned Wheeler Auto in the back of beyond ;) but I am not sure it is worth a drive from the...

    Car is sounding like it is straining, in the wrong gear?

    Recently noticed that my M3 ‘20 with 70k mileage on it sounds like it is straining. Very noticeable in the drivers seat, not so much in the front passenger seat. Reminds me of an ice engine that the motor is wanting to be upshifted . Anyone else experiencing this? My new Vredstein tires...

    Why does warranty work require you to approve estimate?

    Taking my car in tomorrow to have them diagnose another suspension rattle issue and they asked me to approve the $260.00 repair cost, even though the car is still under warranty. Why do they structure their billing this way? Never seen this with other brands I have owned when clearly doing...

    Paint protection, how long should it last?

    Took it to the installer today and he was not happy with what happened and told me he was going to file a warranty claim with the manufacturer, so it is looking promising. Thanks for the great replies!

    Paint protection, how long should it last?

    I had Suntek Ultra PPF put on the front of my car in December 2019 when brand new. I just noticed when washing the car today that it is lifting slightly in the front bottom corner of the bumper and trapping dirt that is super noticeable under the film. I have had this on numerous cars and never...

    Tailgate damaged in Tesla service centre parking lot in Ottawa, Ontario. What can I do?

    I would think that this is an issue for your insurance company. They must have cases like this all the time and a process that they follow. I am sure it will get resolved.

    Ottawa Toyota dealer selling slightly used 2022 Model 3' and Y's!

    Took our Prius in for service and was surprised to see several very shiny Performance 3's and Y's for sale.They had super low kms, like 75, 115 etc and according to the Carfax guide were from Quebec and ownership was originally lease's. Very odd I thought!

    Another round of price increases - March 14 2022

    Thanks for the detailed answer.This explains why sometimes I see the red and think it looks superb and other times, just dull. I love my white , but don't think I want to have his and hers of the same colour. Sorry they went to black handles etc, not a fan of that.

    Another round of price increases - March 14 2022

    Noticed you had a red 3, and now a silver ,thinking of getting a second 3 and leaning towards the red, but was wondering how it is for showing dust etc.Once had a red Saab 900 that was very hard to keep clean looking, so appreciate your comments.

    Tire Tread Depth

    That is odd, did you question them as to why this alert came on with the readings they gave you? Something does not add up.

    Lost my entire front plate and assembly in the storm

    Many people in Ottawa drive with just the rear plate as there are so many cars here from Quebec ,the people in blue never bother ticketing. Another advantage of living in the Nations Capital.😀

    What type of range are you seeing on this snowy day? (From Montreal to .....)

    Could not get out of my driveway in Ottawa. My street is still not plowed after 47 cm of the white stuff. On the plus side, skiing should be awesome!
