    "New" Sources of Tesla 'OEM,' Tesla-like, and/or Third-Party CCS1 Adapters

    Ordered adapter from Harumio last week (Thurs $309usd incl shipping..gave userid and passwd). Got invoice from Tesla Korea showing it was ordered in my name. This a.m. (Wed just after midnight) got email from Tesla Korea saying order cancelled. Right then, 1am, looked at Soom Lab Korea thinking...

    The Cabot Trail

    Excellent. It is a gorgeous part of the country. I certainly could have used more than 2 days there, to do some of the hikes. The Parks Desination chargers certainly make a difference. I will also add, that if you were in an ICE car, you would also have to plan, because I did not see many places...

    My referral miles experience and the interesting solution.

    Wow, I thought it was the "car" reward that was canned, but my lootbox says "we are not offering referral awards until further notice" Wow... I got in under the wire!, and interestingly, my miles "expiry date" is Aug 14, 2022 (1 year after my delivery date!)

    Touring Cape Breton Island, in Nova Scotia

    Thanks again for the offer of the CHAdeMO adapter. As you probably saw, I successfully toured the Cabot Trail, using the parks "destination" chargers, and had no range anxiety. Up to the time of departure from Toronto, I was considering your adapter offer. Turns out it was not needed, all I...

    The Cabot Trail

    Using advice from here, I successfully drove the Cabot Trail on Sept 4/5. I charged to 100% at Enfield (outside Halifax), then charged at Baddeck, Ingonish, Beulach Ban Falls (parked and used Tesla Destination charger) here and walked the 1km back to my cabin. Car charged to 100% overnight, no...

    My referral miles experience and the interesting solution.

    I don't think the solution to my problem referral link has been specifically mentioned. I thought it an interesting/slimely/creative/underhanded solution to my problem. I'll try to be brief: - May 21 - Thinking of ordering, my SA (from a test drive) emails to say "feel free to send me your...

    Only getting 6kW from a 30kW charger!

    That I know about. And was trying to avoid the 34km 1 way trip. I've relented and will do it in the a.m. Thank you all for helping clarify the situation. I'll be looking forward to Tesla's CCS adapter, since I think CHAdeMO is on the way out
  14. JulesVerne

    Only getting 6kW from a 30kW charger!

    Yes.. using j1772 adapter. And confusing 6kW in 1 listing with 30amp in another listing. I was told there was a really fast charger in town, and when I looked it up. It was a Flo with CCS and CHAdeMO and I have neither adapter
  15. JulesVerne

    Only getting 6kW from a 30kW charger!

    You are right. The Gerard Hall Flo listing on Plugshare says 6.2kW, and the listing for the Public Library says 30amp. So I was equating those to be the same unit of measure.. and they aren't. ..sorry for the confusion. I'm only 2weeks+ into this ownership and still learning. So you are saying...

    Only getting 6kW from a 30kW charger!

    I'm in Halifax,NS on a roadtrip from Toronto. Arrived in town with 18% soc, and am down to 12%. Today I visited 3 charging locations. 1 a Flo 6kW charger, and I was getting the promised 6kW. After about 15 minutes, and $0.36. I unplugged to try a faster charger.. I got to a Dalhousie U., Eaton...

    Agree that the 1 pedal is one of the biggest changes you have to make. Going back to my prius, I have to remember to go to the brake. Moderating the Regen with a little gas is something to learn as well..

    I added full front PPF but have not done ceramic. I may do that myself.

    ahh man... what a drag "holy excess paint spray batman".. that is crazy. and also the bad pain on door edge. Those do look to be deal breakers. The liner, the frunk the tailgate. Those could most likely be fixed easily. The paint is another story, and they offered a complete respray??? That's a...

    Plastidip 19" aero covers

    Yes.. flat black, next to shiny grey. Difference is not as pronounced as i expected either but I think is better than if it was all flat black

    Good luck. I hope your pick-up is as smooth as mine was.

    Some get rid of the silver hub, and use tape or rim protectors on the rims, but I think this is a good compromise.

    Plasti Dip Steering Wheel Logo?

    Here's my steering wheel, with a black decal. I don't mind the slight silver outline. (in my profile pick you can also see my Plasti-dip'ed aero hubs)

    Plastidip 19" aero covers

    This is an old thread, but here is my result.. ended up using 4 !!! cans of plasti-dip, taped out and kept the shiny gray parts and I kept center silver, but added a black tesla logo.

    Model Y delivery anxiety? The wait is worth it

    Any VIN luck yet? Your order 1 week after mine, and wondering if you have had luck? "If you're VInless and you know it.... clap your hands.." (love it)
  30. JulesVerne

    Canada Waiting Room

    Yes, I blacked them out myself. Plasti-dip, Matte Black. I hope it lasts. Taped up all the "glass grey" and center parts on the Hubs (be patient, that takes a while). Used alcohol to prep the silver parts. I thought 2 cans would do it, but after 2 cans, some sections had a grainy texture (maybe...

    Am I getting caught up in the hype of PPF

    Here I am again. The thread starter. I got my VIN, Aug 1. I picked up my MY Aug 14. It was supposed to be picked up Aug 17, but got moved, but I already had made a PPF appt on the 18th, so I kept it. I had Full Front Plus & Headlight PPF (3M Scotchguard Pro) installed by Alex at "Chip...

    How long for Camera Calibration ?

    I'll have to try more highway. Picked up my Y 2 days ago, and I have driven mostly city streets, and a little bit highway, for a total of 145km. Still not calibrated

    I did appreciate that there was no pressure. I initially offered to just inspect the outside (thinking it would be locked and they wouldn't give me the keys without signing), but that's when they said here's the cards, take your time.

    Picked up my MY today. Handed my red folder with paperwork and registration in it at the main check-in area and walked around the back to another check in area, where the cars awaiting delivery are lined up. (many running climate control, i guess for comfort of those picking up.) I handed them...

    I ordered mine from "Taptes", not realizing they ship from China. They look like Maxpider, with no logo, but I'm guessing now they are knock-offs. (they haven't arrived yet.) They did seem to know what they were talking about, and answered my question re difference between 2020 and 2021 Model Y...

    Since my pickup date got moved up today to Saturday the 14th, I drove up to the "showroom" on Lawrence, in Toronto, to ask a couple of questions (the service center is actually on Railside, just around the corner). I've bought my own License plate mount, and wanted to ask that they not "tape"...

Pick up appt now moved from Aug 17 to Aug 14 (Sat) Yippee I already had Insurance lined up (I'll have to call to move forward), and got my finances in order Tuesday!

    I started this thread, and now have a VIN assigned, and a pickup date of Aug 17. I HAVE succumbed to the hype. My own choice. With this value of car, I have decided for full front wrap, including mirrors, plus headlights. I want it to stay looking nice. I chose a Toronto/Scarborough firm...

    Thx for info. I chose SC pickup vs Home delivery so I could be thorough. I have a few checklists. I'll check trunk for charger kit (I've already picked up a 2nd mobile connector that will stay stay in my garage) Fingers crossed for successful pickup.

    Have been assigned a VIN (May 24 order) Aug 1. EDD = Aug 11-17. Phone call today, Aug 3, to choose home delivery, or service center (10km away?). I chose Service Center, with a choice of 17th or 18th...and chose 17th. Getting close!
