Has anyone been able to acquire any extra Model 3 Key Cards in the GTA? If so, how and how much? I'd like to have some extras to keep at home, I addition to the ones kept in a wallet.

Thanks

I asked this in the Yorkdale store last month and they said you can order one or more from service. They were $54 if i recall correctly.

How many keys do you need? Your phone is your primary and you get two keycards. Surely that is enough? If not call a store or the 1-800 #?

The phone seems to be very unreliable (I have a Google Pixel and non-stop Bluetooth key issues), thus two drivers, each with a card in their wallet, would like to keep a spare at home for the "just in case something happens". Every car I've had before always had 2 keys and an "Emergency/valet" key.

Yeah the Pixel is particularly bad for being a phone key unfortunately. This is one instance where I am happy I am using an iPhone (there aren't many instances...)

The Pixel has been horrible for Bluetooth. The Pixel 2 also seems bad according to online reviews.

My wife has a Samsung S9 and it seems to work perfectly.

I just did this. I know it was in the U.S. but here is my invoice with part numbers. They are only sold in pairs, like when you pick up the vehicle. I was told I had to have all the cards with me during the reprogramming. Took about 20 minutes total.

Edit: I was not charged for the reprogramming, and they actually gave me the key cards for free as goodwill.

Which location did you get this?

Apparently, Bluetooth issues can be remedied by going into 'Battery Optimization' settings and turning it off for the Tesla App. As well, never force quitting the App so that its always running in the background makes it more reliable.

Tried that. Doesn't help on the Pixel

It's definitely an issue on the Pixel's side. A shame, as the Pixel is such an amazing phone (other than the Bluetooth issues)

Anybody have recent experience with extra cards? The price keeps going up. Now $75...

I have confirmed with my advisors here at Oakville and they have informed me that the cards at $6 each (individually). There is also a labor charge for programming the cards which equals out to approx $75 +tax for the key cards.
