    (Another) Winter Range Question

    In my experience for the last two years, I typically lose 30-40% range in cold weather Secondly, your right foot pressure has a huge influence! So my 80% charged Tesla 3 LR typically begins the day with 400 km (240 miles) This will give me a real MAX range of 280 km or 170 miles The...

    GTA drivers, when are you switching to winter tire this year?

    My personal rule of thumb: Canadian drivers should install and use winter tires from Halloween to Easter (Oct 31-April 4) It is generally recommended to use winter tires when the ambient temperatures are consistently at or below 7"c When Is Best to Change To Winter Tires? | TIRECRAFT

    75 kWh remaining on a 90 kWh battery after 5 years, your thoughts?

    @cousin_IT , Completely agree with cypho comment. 8.4% loss over 5 years is great! The battery degradation of Tesla 90 & Tesla 85 loses 10-15% at 150,000-200,000 miles Check out the graph in the following link Tesla data shows battery degradation is limited but not all packs are created equal -...

    Anyone running forged 19" wheels?

    @Xenoilphobe I was one of the first to jump on the Group Buy for Titan 7's that you spearheaded. Everyday I drive my Tesla 3 with the forged Titans is a true blessing. Thanks for spearheading this effort!

    Model Y or BMW X5 45e

    @sarugby4life, I don't understand your concern for owning solely EV's Perhaps you should consider adding the "Fred Flintstone" option

    Model Y or BMW X5 45e

    @sarugby4life , Don't chase the deal! Drive both Telsa Y and BMW X5 back to back on e same day. IMHO, any hybrid vehicle is the WORST of both worlds... More expensive, same maintenance schedule as ICE vehicle, massive depreciation, in 3 years time, EVs will rule the roost!

    Trade in 2018 LR RWD for 2021 LR AWD?

    @milosM3, Since you only drive 12,000 miles / year, then you should probably defer until 2021 or 2022 Here's my thoughts why you should keep your LR Tesla 3 for the foreseeable future 1. LR Tesla 3 rwd is probably the best driving 3 model (very desirable) 2. FSD version to keep will be the...
