    DIY Repair Curb Rash on my 21" Uberturbine Wheel.

    Thanks! All I used was the paint (after some sanding prep). Started with a few coats on the damaged area (taped off), then expanded it to cover the 1-2 spokes around. Now that it's been a few days seeing in different lighting outside, I think it's a very close match. It's not perfect, but that...

    DIY Repair Curb Rash on my 21" Uberturbine Wheel.

    Found this thread recently but couldn't find that specific colour. Instead, this was on the shelf and turned out to be a fairly close match ("Black Stainless Steel"): Universal | Metallic Spray Paint | Rust-Oleum It's slightly less black than the original wheel paint, but after blending it...

    Video - Tesla Model 3 Cold Weather Charging Issue

    I had what seems like a similar issue the other day. I was charging at a public charger with a J1772 adapter. It was around -8C, was charging for about 5 hours. When I went to leave, the adapter was stuck locked in (couldn't get it to release via app or car controls). I removed the J1772...

    Tire change in Ottawa

    I just recently had a set of Nokian winter tires purchased and installed at Kal Tire. I don’t have any of the aftermarket jack pads. They were able to lift the car just fine on the factory jacking points. Happy with their service.

    Who has lost regen with winter tires?

    He didn't have an answer for me, but to let him know if I have issues when I get my winters on. As others have stated in this thread, seems that Tesla is collecting data and working on a solution (hopefully).

    Who has lost regen with winter tires?

    I had a Tesla mobile service tech working on my car recently to replace some parts. I talked to him a bit about this issue, if he's seen it and what he knows. Essentially what he told me was that the control system for the regen is very sensitive, and it is calibrated from the factory using the...

    Chip in windshield

    I have an early version of this product, a windshield protection film, on another car and I highly recommend it. I got it because I take that car to the track and I wanted protection from rock/debris when following other cars on track. I am considering this for my Model 3 as well: ExoShield |...

    Ottawa Model 3

    FYI. I have a Tesla HPWC wired to a 60A circuit. This is a screenshot of the app with my Model 3 connected and charging.

    Ottawa Model 3

    278XX here. Interesting! I really hope you don't have the same issue as me. I did receive a fairly new Model S 100D as a loaner so at least that's the silver lining in all this. Apparently this is the longest Tesla Montreal has kept a Model 3 for.

    Ottawa Model 3

    I think what is happening with my car must be unusual, as I don't think Tesla HQ gets involved unless it's something they haven't really seen much before. At this point it sounds like Fremont is mostly directing things with my car, giving instructions to Montreal. Some good news though, I did...

    Ottawa Model 3

    Yes, sounds like they will send it back to me. I haven't been offered a loaner by them, but I am going to request one today and seems like they will accommodate although they may just give me a car (non-electric) from Enterprise or similar. For me that is the only disappointing part of their...

    Ottawa Model 3

    Hello! Unfortunately you will most likely have to visit the service centre, but give them a call and speak with them directly about it. Would be good to know what your experience with them is. My situation seemed quite serious in that not only was regen braking disabled (along with practically...

    Ontario EV Rebates Cancelled July 11, 2018

    Just wondering if anyone here has received the incentive/rebate recently, and how long ago did you apply? Thanks.

    Ottawa Model 3

    Thanks, me too! More updates and information from the service centre would be nice, but I know they are working on it and honestly they are probably pretty swamped over there. Not an ideal situation but not a lot I can do but wait. I haven't pressed them for a loaner yet, they unfortunately did...

    Ottawa Model 3

    I just wanted to give an update on my situation that I posted about previously in this thread (Ottawa Model 3). Hopefully this is informative for other Ottawa owners on what to expect if you do have a serious issue with your car and the current experience with Tesla Montreal. I think everyone...

    Ottawa Model 3

    So, my great "honeymoon" period with my Model 3 ended abruptly today. I was driving uneventfully down the road when the car suddenly started flashing what seemed like every warning imaginable: - Car needs service (steering assist reduced) - Traction control disabled - Passenger airbag disabled...

    Supercharger - Belleville, ON

    Here are screenshots I took from the app. The slower rate one is Belleville, the faster Kingston.

    Supercharger - Belleville, ON

    It was around 50% both times. Is there a place I can get detailed logs? I can take a look if so.

    International Centre delivery experiences

    I picked up my white 3 this Saturday. Drove back to Ottawa the next day. Overall, it was a great experience and I'm extremely happy with the car. Just some quick tips/observations: My appointment was at 9am, and someone came to get me around 9:20am. I'd say total time spent (including me...

    Supercharger - Belleville, ON

    Stopped to charge up earlier today, driving my new Model 3 from Toronto to Ottawa. I was getting about 300 km/hr (48kw) which seemed a bit slow. I ended up stopping at the Kingston supercharger as well, and I was getting about double the rate - around 600 km/hr (93kw). Is the Belleville...

    How do I get to the I. Centre from Pearson A/p.

    When I checked, Uber has a $40 flat starting fee no matter where you're going to from the airport. Regular taxi or bus would be your best bet.

    International Centre delivery experiences

    I emailed my ISA (Inside Sales Advisor) and he sent it to me. My ISA has been very responsive. For those doing financing through Tesla, you might want to confirm with your delivery/sales agent that they have the latest financing info and amount due on delivery (it should say on the MVPA). I...

    Aftermarket Add-Ons

    For those getting dashcams, any recommendations?

    I'm picking up on the 9th as well, 9am. Flying into Pearson.

    What was or will be your payment method at delivery?

    My SA also said I am able to bring a "cheque" and they use the account and routing information. I've never encountered any EFT limits even with large amounts but you probably want to confirm with your bank. Another way I've seen this done (not Tesla, other direct bank payments) is the business...

    Ottawa Model 3

    Great to hear some Ottawa folks starting to get their 3! I'll be picking up mine June 9 at 9am. Hoping for no issues with the car on pickup. For those of us that do find any issues, would be great if we could share with each other how that goes. There's no service center here, so just curious...

    Anyone here got Model 3 in Canada already, does your car have the license plate already when deliver

    If you do let Tesla mount it at pickup, how do they do it here in Ontario? Bracket screwed into the bumper?

    Ottawa Model 3

    After some back and forward with my SA (and them continuing to push me away from Montreal delivery), I will be picking up my Model 3 June 9 at International Centre in Toronto! Flying into Pearson as well. I can definitely understand Tesla trying to centralize deliveries as much as possible at...

    Ottawa Model 3

    My VIN has also now "disappeared", even after my SA offered delivery week of June 5 at International Centre in Toronto. If I get a different VIN assigned, maybe Tesla is moving cars between buyers to optimize deliveries?

    Ottawa Model 3

    So an update after the SA checked. They are saying the policy has changed implying Montreal is not doing Ontario deliveries at this point, but I should contact Montreal delivery center directly to get full details (waiting to hear back from them now). The SA also said delivery (to Ottawa) is...

    Ottawa Model 3

    Great, thanks for the first-hand details! Will go back to the SA.

    Ottawa Model 3

    Reading through the EVIP application, there is this eligibility clause: This is the first registration and plating for this vehicle and it was not registered/plated/driven previously in Ontario or another jurisdiction/country. @Doug_G given this clause, could you share details on the correct...

    Ottawa Model 3

    It did seem strange as I hadn't heard that before. I'll have to follow up. This SA is in California, not sure they completely know the incentive rules for Ontario. Thanks.

    Ottawa Model 3

    Hello! Was contacted via email today by an SA in California. I realized I set my account preference to contact via email only, so I never received a phone call. Here's my timeline so far: - Reserved Mar. 31, 2016 online (within first 3 minutes). Non-owner - Invited Mar. 27 - Configured &...
