    Nose-cone Wave

    Hi all, This post is targeted at the OG's out there. I recall when I first got my Model S 4 years ago, whenever I drove by another Tesla I would be greeted with an enthusiastic wave and smile from the other driver. The so called "Tesla nod". Over the years as the number of Tesla's has...

    Road trip to Atlanta

    I will echo the impact of weather conditions (and more specifically temperature) on battery range. Went GTA to Columbus OHIO recently in ideal conditions but know same trip in late December equals at least one additional supercharger stop along the way. Smart to get an idea of your route...

    London Ontario Tire Change recommendation

    I don't have a lot of experience using the chargers in Grand Bend. Looks like there are a couple L2 chargers at Green Dot and the Heritage Museum. Depending on where you're coming from the Chademo L3 (50kw) charger at Masonville mall in London might be helpful - but it comes at a cost (I...

    Dream may be dead

    Tough one. I know it's hard to pull the trigger on a purchase when you've psyched yourself up then the "price goes up". I wonder if you would have psychologically felt the same way if they hadn't originally given the impression you'd be getting the 18K trade in (ie. If they told you trade in...

    Supercharger - London, ON

    Hard to resist the curly fries! Luckily there is a traffic light and cross walk just north of the station where Costco and Tim Hortons is. A little ways in the winter but do-able.

    New (to me) feature of overhead view...

    My understanding is it only lights up if you initiate a lane change... I wonder if they can do the same regardless if lane change initiated - maybe a soft flashing red. Agree - blind spot warnings are a small area that the system hasn't evolved well to improve. Seems like a simple software...

    Anyone Encountered Tesla Envy?

    I've been a Tesla owner for 4 years. When I first got mine I must have been stopped by people at traffic lights and parking lots a million times. I never minded it. Always positive as people generally were interested in knowing, "does it take any gas?" "where do you charge it?" "how far can...

    London Ontario Tire Change recommendation

    Late to this thread but since winter is coming thought it might be useful to add another option to the list. Acura West has been good with my tire change overs each year. My wife has an MDX and I've been going there with Model S for 4 years (when there were very little other Tesla's in...

    Supercharger - London, ON

    Hi all - this is great news!! Not sure if others did the same but I submitted this location as a potential site via Tesla's website this past summer. Nice location due to 402/401 junction. Agree - would love to have one in Masonville as well for North End travel (which does have a new, non...
