    ColorNDrive Pearl White PPSW Touch up chip repair kit

    New. I bought the kit, but my friend had enough left over to let me use the left over. One kit does cover a lot of chips. Colour match is decent (although it can take many attempts.) Paid $40US, asking $30US shipped to continental USA. Local pick is possible in Toronto/Oakville. Does not...

    Winter RIMS-Model 3 SR+

    If you want to use the aero covers, you have to either get a set of aero rims (new or used - I think they are $275 each?). I bought a set of replica aeros from Wheelsco last year.

    how many inch of snow on ground will make rwd undriveable?

    Upgraded SR Partial Audio to Full Premium

    The A pillar or mirror tweeter? The A pillar speaker is 2W of power, I can barely hear mine. The mirror tweeter is a bit overpowering, but the harshness did go down after I installed bass blockers on it.

    Upgraded SR Partial Audio to Full Premium

    Hope this helps... The Alpine amp first: 1. Are you using a line out converter or are you cutting off the RCA plugs on the amp harness? I think the red=right channel and white=left channel still applies if you choose to cut off the plugs or T-Tap these. 2. I see your diagram that you have the...

    No more TOU electricity in ON! Charge whenever you want

    After Oct 31, you can decide to go with TOU or fixed. Ontario will allow hydro customers to opt out of time-of-use pricing I think for most EV owners, TOU might be cheaper overall depending how much they drive and how they run other things in their home.

    when is good time to swap to all season tire from winter tire ?

    I finally swapped my tires today. I know the aero cap can cause some rubbing on the rim itself, but this seems excessive for only 7000km. It's on every rim and pretty much all the way around. These are the replica aero rims. Maybe the fit isn't as good at the genuine Tesla ones. Not that it...

    Chrome Delete Project: Materials Sourcing & General Questions

    There are pros and cons to buying a pre-cut kit. For me, doing it this way, I didn't have to spend time aligning up all the pieces. My savings isn't that much because the first time, I bought a roll of 2" vinyl and a 1x5' piece. But if you find 2 other people, you can wrap 3 cars for $150 or...

    Rust in wheel well, is this normal

    I think I read that Tesla says that rust proofing isn't recommended for the car. Now I'm going to check my car when I change over the winter tires next week. The suspension components on my last car had rust in that pattern as well. Try spraying some corrosion free on the area. If you have a...

    If you are interested in satin black, I have enough for 2 cars left. I bought a 5x8' piece. You actually only need 1.5" wide strips. I can cut you a couple of 1.5" or 2" wide strips for the top arch, doors and cut you like a 1x5' piece for the back window and mirrors. Door handles can be wrapped...

    Most recommended DIY Chrome Delete?

    All you need is a 5x8ft roll. The longest piece which is the top arch is a little over 7 ft. There is also enough vinyl to wrap 3 cars worth with this roll. Or make that many mistakes. The mirrors are very difficult however.

    A good way of measuring accurately KWH usage?

    OMG you are using over 50kwh a day on average. Even in October where you aren't running the furnace much and likely the car is running more efficiently you averaged 46kwh per day. Do you have a gas or electric water heater? How old is your home and how is the wiring?

    Best DIY Clear PPF for the front of the Model 3. Please Help

    The hood itself isn't that difficult as it's fairly flat. If you want to wrap the hood, a full wrap requires a 48"x60" bulk piece and a partial wrap that goes up halfway requires a 24"x48" piece. I highly advise against using a heat gun. You can easily heat the film up too much and melt the...

    Same here on the driver's side. Happened twice while driving home at night, no problem in the morning when the car was parked in my garage. Appears to happen after the last update, but not sure if it is the cold. If I go into the menus and press fold and unfold mirrors twice, it does unfold.

    That is terrible. I wouldn't take it if there was a price adjustment offered. Online inventory says there are 2 Model 3s at the Lawrence location - one with Aeros and one with 19" sport wheels. Which one is this?
