    Does anyone ever just get it painted with better paint?

    After 5 years with full frontal PPF I’m sold on it. Hood, front fenders, front bumper, mirrors, headlights and fog lights. If I was doing it again the only ‘must do’ imo is the front bumper, headlights and fog lights. That’s pretty affordable on any priced car.

    Light adjustment LED and fog

    Headlight adjustment is only through the cars service screen calibration. No old style physical adjustment screws. Foglights are fixed and not adjustable. I adjusted my own after a headlight warranty replacement through the touchscreen. I parked on a level surface 100 ft away from a wall and...

    Financing Tesla vehicles in Canada

    Always an issue when it the only account you have with RBC. Call them. I have a few times. Great to deal with on the phone. 1 800 769-2555

    Ontario Ultra Low Overnight rates are now live

    I’m retired and use about 200-350 kW/month. With the peak time change and increase I see no value in the switch for us. Great though for a daily longer distance commuter. We would also be about break even on a tiered plan plus or minus a few bucks as well so will just stay TOU.

    Toronto: tire rebalance on the weekend

    Glad that was an easy fix. That’s pretty common in the winter. Same with snow/ice packed in wheel gaps driving in deep snow. As well those with aero wheel covers make it more difficult to easily clean behind without removing them.

    Did a wood dash trim delete today

    Looks great! I did a real TSportline carbon one on my ‘18 3. Expensive but really nice (after I added 3 rattle can spray coats of clear satin for uV protection). What you did is a great lower cost option that leaves future changes to anything else very easy.

    Moisture in front frunk

    I’ve never had a drop in there. Is your hood flush with both fenders and the front bumper cover? If it’s sitting slightly high you can lower it a bit with the 2 adjusters plastic screw type adjusters. Check the rubber seal that surrounds the tub and make sure it properly installed and looks...

    My FSD software version

    Doesn’t work that way for us FSD owners. Your 69.2.3 and my 69.2.4 are embedded in 20.18 and 20.19. So if You have 20.18 you have 69.2.3 etc. Check out Teslafi as a download tracker.

    My FSD software version

    Open Tesla APP on phone. Once it connects with car scroll to bottom. Read your software version below your VIN number.

    Aviva, however it’s through a group plan which helps with the discounts.

    Canadian insurance

    Full replacement cost gets expensive after 3 years. I dropped it on the 4’th year renewal. I'm retired, outside the GTA, 2m liability, $500 disappearing deductible, additional accident and catastrophic medical coverage. Discounts for claim free, car and home, loyalty, etc. $820 a year. When we...

    How do you know when brake fluid flush is needed?

    I’ve used Motul RBF 600 for years. It’s non-synthetic that’s exceeds DOT 3 and 4 specs by far. Never had a brake fluid related soft pedal issue with it and my track car all up was 4000 lbs. Great fluid. RBF 660 wasn’t available when I tracked but I would have used it instead of 600. As you...

    How do you know when brake fluid flush is needed?

    Moisture in brake fluid is the culprit and the testers read moisture level. As long as your in the safe (green) range your good to go. When I tracked extensively I bled the brakes after every track weekend. In that case is was heat related and just needed to bleed the calipers enough to remove...

    Agree! You definitely should have gotten this by now. When I got my initial FSD Beta download I was at a safety score of 93 as well.

    Canada - FSD rollout

    I just got 2022.20.11 today. IMO not perfect but way better. Smoother stops. Smoother intersection turns. Did an admirable job tonight on unlit/unmarked rural roads. Haven’t driven it in the daytime yet.

    Canada - FSD rollout

    I’m the same guy that posted the above. In retrospect the $2800 included Autopilot 3 computer hard so maybe a good deal. Just checked though and FSD is now $19,500 CDN. THAT’s NUTS!

    Dent and scratch in back bumper and panel while backing

    I was gently rear ended in June 2018 when my 3 was 9 days old. After a terrific experience at Excellence Auto on Midwest in Scarborough, an authorized Tesla repair shop, I would never personally go anywhere else. After 45 years of poor to mediocre experiences dealing with body shops this one was...

    Canada - FSD rollout

    After using FSD extensively for about 2 months now on Ontario 400 series highways, 80 km rural routes and in my population 19,000 town I’ll offer some comments. Many of these are known issues and reported already. - Basically zero issues on 400 series highways however I turned off auto lane...

    I missed the first round due to miserably failing the safety score. I was added on June 6’th with FSD v10.12.2

    Canada - FSD rollout

    I’ve been using FSD for 8-10 days or so now. There is one consistent error. Every time I enter a lower speed zone ie: I’m doing 80km and pass a sign for ‘50 begins’ the car doesn’t slow down. Instead of it using regen/brakes to decelerate it just coasts. So every time I enter a lower speed zone...

    Canada - FSD rollout

    Opted in. A week later after driving embarrassingly slowly and leaving gaps a bus could fill I ended up at 96%. Mostly following to closely followed by apparently aggressive cornering and hard braking. Opted out for a day or two, Safety Score disappeared and then I opted back in successfully...

    No front end PPF DC/NOVA - regrets?

    You really only need PPF on the front bumper. Buy a pre-cut kit, do the work and you won’t regret it. I also would include the headlights and fogs as well.

    Powder coated paint done on your brake calipers

    These guys specialize in calipers. Basically all they do. I used them for my track car over the years for calipers rebuilds. Complete disassembly, sandblasting and powder coating. Superior to paint. http://www.midwestcalipers.com/index.html

    Is the 2021 red brighter then past models?

    They look great brand new especially if inside under the showroom lights. Kinda like diamonds at a jewelry store. I love the look of MC red. It looks great when new and if it’s kept clean and polished just like the black. I was considering it as well but after seeing a few aging MC red Model S’s...

    Condensation in headlights - left light stays on

    No need to be nervous about the replacement. I have a very early LR 3 that had the LED signature light failure issue. Had 2 drivers side headlights replaced and 1 passenger side. New part # versions were installed each time. The last one was done by mobile service in my garage. Took about 1/2...

    Any good examples of Tesla Wall Connector installed between garage doors?

    I have exactly 17 1/2” between the rails and 15 1/2” between the side wings I built. However I have the earlier Tesla wall connector that has the thicker, less compliant cable capable of 80 amps. The newer wall connectors have the thinner, more compliant cable capable of 48 amps. It will...

    Hi, Here are some pics of my install. You use the stock Tesla front plate holder. I requested mine to not be attached to the car when new but it’s pretty easy to remove if it comes attached. They include drilling template for drilling the holes in the Tesla plate holder to attach the arms to...

    Should PPF look OK from 5 feet away?

    That a really bad job. Poor application of a pre-cut pattern. Dirt is going to get under all those exposed edges and look terrible. Using a pre-cut pattern is fine. It’s the installation of it that’s bad. I would want a refund and go somewhere else.

    Any good examples of Tesla Wall Connector installed between garage doors?

    I used readily available 1” x 6” lumber for the wings. I attached a piece of rectangular strapping running down one edge of the 1 x 6 with screws to give me a way to screw it to the wood frame that secures the door track. Had to leave gaps where the track attaches. Here’s a couple of closeups:

    Any good examples of Tesla Wall Connector installed between garage doors?

    Here you go. As you can see I installed side ‘wings’ to contain the cord and keep it away from the tracks. The box above it the emergency shutoff switch. Required if the fuse panel is not in the garage:
