    Hello fellow Vancouverites! I'm doing a road trip up to Smithers, BC around Canada Day this year (2021), and the new Tesla Superchargers don't seem like they'll be ready in time. It looks like there are a bunch of CHAdeMO 50kW chargers on the way up north but I can't buy an adapter anywhere...

    MASTER THREAD: Winter Tires

    wondering what others have done for winter wheel and tire packages. Tesla’s wheel and tire package includes install and is $2,000 US or $2,400 CAD. I’ve priced it out separately and it seems that’s a pretty good deal. Anyone else gone a different route, and found a better deal ?

    Vancouver Delivery Experience

    Despite many on-line forum posts claiming that paint defects and bad panel alignments on the model 3, mine was perfect. I have to say that the gaps and alignments are not as perfect as Honda or Toyota (I only owned these two brands before), but they are acceptable. The only thing was that they...
