    How much you pay for your M3 insurance in BC?

    I have used 3rd party optional insurance for a claim long time ago. I didn't have to deal with ICBC at all. I think it would depend upon a claim type, but you could ask BCAA or other providers for more information.

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    I'm on the same boat and disappointed with Tesla's decision not to include us (who missed by couple of days). The email invite to order didn't even mention about the losing lifetime premium connectivity.

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    When the car goes to sleep-mode, it would disconnect WiFi. So, I would expect it will connect/disconnect to WiFi as the car goes in and out of sleep mode.

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    Yeah, it's sad their lack of ability to communicate to the current and future owners. They really need better PR team (not dismantling them). Nothing I can do now... just hope they do early buyers of Model 3 do right.

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    Sad news from Tesla.... I revived my old email threads regards to premium connectivity package with Tesla. This is their response after I referenced the website article. I'm more disappointed then upset. I'm not sure what's the logic of who's getting this perk!! Hello Andrew, We have...

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    There isn't a lot of benefit of using 5G. Canadian carriers are slow to roll out 5G towers, and there isn't significant speed/latency improvements over 4G/LTE. It may change over time, but not now.

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    Did your Tesla account get updated with "Free Unlimited" premium connectivity?

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    You're not alone on that. I missed by 2 days (ordered on July 2!), got my 2018 LR RWD on Aug 2018! I'm patiently waiting for Tesla to get to 2018 models (fingers cross!)

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    I'm on the same boat. I missed the lifetime premium connectivity by couple of days. I did sign up for the subscription couple of days ago. I really hope to get the unlimited subscription. Fingers crossed.

    TPMS Warning doesn't disappear after adjusting it

    I reset the TPMS sensors and re-calibrated, then the warning light turned off. The pressures seem to stay at the level. Thanks,
  11. fidodido

    TPMS Warning doesn't disappear after adjusting it

    Yesterday, the TPMS warning light came on for one of the tire (front passenger side at 38 psi). The driver side was about the same psi (38-39) but no warming lights. I've inflated more air on all the tires and check the pressures to be 40 psi all around, but the warning light isn't going away...

    Hitch for Bike Rack on Model 3

    There is several old threads about it. I got mine from U-Haul (which uses Curt hitch). I found it has best price for the hitch and the installation. It's good to find a U-Haul location where they've done Tesla Model 3 installation. I'm sure there is one (or more) U-Haul location in GTA where...

    Yes, I do. It is annoying and I filed a request to keep wifi on. I'd suggest you do as well from your tesla account.

    You could submit a support ticket and hope for the best. I *might* had some success with that method.

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    You can keep wait in line. I don't think Tesla will do anything at this point. I missed the life-time Premium Connectivity package by 3 days (as I ordered it July 2. The cut-off date was June 30). I reached out to delivery specialist, Tesla support numerous times, and did not get anywhere...

    Enhanced Autopilot

    Personally, I don't drive enough on highways let alone just city driving (work from home) to justify the cost of EAP or FSD. If I had money (cash) to spend on that, I'd invest / buy tesla stocks. I think it would give me a better return on money.

    U-Haul Hitch for M3

    I finally decided to get the hitch from U-Haul. Can anyone who get the hitch installed from U-Haul, let me know the time they took to install it?

    Dashcam/Sentry Mode USB Recommendations

    I used to use this combo til I recently changed to 240GB 2.5" SSD drive from old laptop. SanDisk 128GB High Endurance Video microSDXC Card with Adapter for Dash cam- C10, U3,V30,4K UHD,Micro SD Card-SDSQQNR-128G-GN6IA...
  24. fidodido

    Need to drive at 131% efficiency to achieve advertised range.

    Also, the sentry mode chews up the battery as well. If you have the sentry mode on for long time, it will make overall efficiency down.

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    The order needed be placed by June 30, 2018. Tesla wasn't really clear on the policy change, and did not inform the customers. The Tesla community sites (Teslarati, and others) was the source that I found after I placed the order. It's a bit of sad situation and I don't think they will do...

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    It's on my signature line. "Invited: Jun 28, 2018 | Ordered: Jul 2, 2018 | Delivered: Aug 31, 2018" When I received the invite it did not mention anything about the upcoming change, and I was on my camping trip. So it took a sometime to discuss with my wife to make the decision to order it as...

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    I missed the cutline by 2 days. If I knew about the upcoming change related to premium connectivity, I would have ordered it earlier. I have been complaining to Tesla ever since I learned about the change. But, so far nothing. :(

    U-Haul Hitch for M3

    I'm interested as well. Don't want to be the first one to do it tho. :D

    Premium Connectivity in Canada

    I just got an email from Tesla saying that my Premium Connectivity Ending 05/18/2020. It's $13.99/mo plus tax. I guess I will wait for the day when I need to commute to work. I don't think I am driving enough these days to spend money on this.

    anyone received 2020.12.5 update yet in Canada?

    I got the update this afternoon. I noticed the pylons showing up with my HW v2.5. Nice!? :)
  31. fidodido

    How much you pay for your M3 insurance in BC?

    I would recommend to visit BCAA to get quotes from both ICBC and BCAA on the stop. I'm with BCAA for now as it was cheaper at the time. I will shop around again when I need to renew later this year.
  32. fidodido

    What's your rated range again?

    Same here. I get around 475km (projected) at 100% for my LR RWD. You seem to have similar delivery date as mine. It might be due to our batch issue(?). I'm not worried but I would be happier to see the higher "projected" range. lol.

    Vancouver - Body Repair

    Here's the link for Tesla approved body shops. Body Shop Support When I had post delivery paint issues, Tesla sent it over to No.1 collision (west 3rd location) for the service. You might want to check there as it is closest from the downtown.

    Premium connectivity

    I believe they're getting the information from Google Map service. I guess it depends upon the area and how they poll the information from other Google users.

    Does Canada get all the features of 2019.40.50.1?

    My LTE premium connectivity is still working fine including Tesla Theater mode (YouTube, Netflix). My model is LR, RWD, August 2018 delivery.
  36. fidodido

    Does Canada get all the features of 2019.40.50.1?

    You might have to grant a permission to access SMS on your phone for Tesla (over Bluetooth). It should be on your Android Bluetooth settings (for your Tesla).

    What's your rated range again?

    Regen is less efficient, but it's winter. Regen doesn't work well when the battery is cold anyways.

    Supercharger - Burnaby, BC

    My comment was on "Crowded locals". I know there are large number of Tesla owners in lower mainland. I'm not sure how many Tesla owners without Free SuperCharging use SuperChargers regular basis. For me, it's more expensive to use SuperChargers unless I need it for road trip or faster charging...
  39. fidodido

    Premium connectivity

    $20 CAD/month seems to be on high side. I'm hoping it to be around $13-15/month. Also, this would be more seamless than using Phone Hotspot, as not all features are available through WiFi. For example, live traffic data and satellite view aren't available without premium connectivity.
  40. fidodido

    Supercharger - Burnaby, BC

    I don't think it would be a too much problem as SuperCharging is more expensive than home charging, unless you have free SuperCharging.

    ICBC Claims and Body Repairs - Tesla Approved Shops?

    My mom had similar issue with ICBC; the car was damaged by "tire-debris". ICBC said that since it wasn't a "flying object" it's not covered by comprehensive coverage, WHAT!? Interesting definition. Hope the repair has been done completely to your ratification.

    Sadly I ordered mine couple days after July 1 cut-off day. Oh well. I think I might pay this monthly fee to enjoy "all" the features. :(

    Premium connectivity

    Yes and No. The streaming music should work over WiFi while driving. The WiFi gets turned off automatically, when you put Tesla into drive. You have to manually turn WiFi on, if you want to use your hotspot. I'm not sure if this would work for traffic visualization and satellite view. I do...

    Has anyone joined a utility program using fleetcarma's OBD2 device?

    There's another thread on this for BC residents. I'm currently participating in the program. It provides charging, driving and whole bunch of data to you and the program. I might eventually disconnect it, as it feels like it's gathering too much data. I'm hoping these data helps to roll out...

    V10 in Canada - what will it come with?

    I guess I'm not the only one keep checking on "software update" page for any news on the v10 update. :-) I'm really want to use my spotify account.
