I think I like mine. RPM installed one I already had purchased on eBay. I put a 64GB memory card in it and viewed the video a few times early on. I haven’t looked at it since but I’m assuming the previous several days of data will always be there should I ever need it.
I’ve never had any error messages and the light is always on, so I assume…[Read more]
I’ve used mine on the Island, in Merritt and around the Lower Mainland (the latter just to try it out). I bought it for the US but haven’t made any trips down there yet. Many BC sites are now charging $.35/kwh but it is good insurance as Brock says and a nicer convenience than Level 2 when a CHAdeMO charger is available (and working…[Read more]

First class event yesterday at the Hope SC and Rolly’s for lunch. 22 Model S’ together were an amazing sight and I’m sure Hope SC now has exceded short term usage of most California SC’s. Thanks to Paul and all those who volunteered and helped organize everything. I trust everyone made it home safe in the fabulous sunshine. (Beautiful flowers…[Read more]
Had RPM install mine last weekend. Excellent install, very clean. $160 plus tax and took just under 2 hours ( I went for a long walk and bought my Compass card at Royal Oak station). Works like a charm. Goes into parking mode after 5 minutes or so and then only turns on when something moves close to the vehicle. No apparent impact on 12V…[Read more]
@Paul, are you compiling 2 lists, one for purchase + install plus a second list for installs only? If only the former, I’ll get RPM to do my install soon so I don’t get in the way of group order. Thx.
I don’t intend to go but I could enter and if I win, I could donate it to another member who wants to go. Do you think Tesla would accept transfers or even care?
Only problem is, the more who do this, it lowers the odds of winning a spot.
@Stephen, thanks for the feedback on the WRG3’s. This jives with posts I’ve read on TMC. I have RWD. I could go with R2’s for winter but I really want to try running a year-round all weather tire, clean up my 21″ wheels and maybe sell them (summer Continental tires are just about done, although surprised they’ve lasted nearly 40,000 Km). I…[Read more]
@Brock, the new Tesla turbine 19’s may be a higher price, perhaps that’s where the $450 came from. I’m not now sure what I’ll actually be getting when they arrive. I would prefer to physically see the new ones before ordering, ie, to see if they might look prone to the same curb rash problems of the 21’s, although not sure if maybe that is…[Read more]
@Stephen, I’m thinking of buying WRG3’s. How are they – snow? ice? rain? noise? dry pavement? performance?
I would like to use them all year round on my 19″ standard wheels.
I’ve used WRG2’s on two previous vans year round and loved them. Lasted just over 60,000 Km.
I’ve heard the WRG3’s might not perform as well in winter as the WRG2’s.
I couldn’t find my record of the TSC wheel quote so I called and Kim just sent me one. CAD $350/wheel 19″ standard. That may be the current price as I only left my Visa card info, they haven’t charged me yet.
@Brock, I don’t have the exact price with me but they were under CAD $400/corner without TPMs (I already have 4). I seem to recall the quote was about CAD $380+ and I gave them my Visa card so the price wouldn’t increase. I haven’t received them yet though and I ordered from the Vancouver TSC a couple of months ago now. TJ advised they are still…[Read more]
@Brock: I ran WRG2’s on previous 4WD vans year round and loved them. They lasted 60,000+ Km. The replacement WRG3’s don’t fare as well in winter reviews, but I like the thought of not swapping twice a year. Maybe down here in the LM without severe winters and ongoing climate change enhancements, they might be OK. I haven’t found anyone who has…[Read more]
@Paul: I lucked out for once. The guy selling it was from Whistler and I was the only bidder when it closed at his starting price. I think he had bought a few in a bulk deal and that was the last one he was trying to sell.
The 19″ T Sportline wheels from Evannex (or T Sportline) look the best and most reasonably priced aftermarket wheels but the exchange rate and shipping are killers. They are USD $1,700 to start compared with just under $1,200 before tax for the 19″ OEM Tesla ones (sans tires and TPMS).
I have 21″ OEM with summer tires but I don’t like the tires…[Read more]
I bought a brand new DR650GW-2CH on eBay for CAD $380 about 3 months ago but haven’t installed it yet. I will talk to RPM to see if they will install it for me. Thanks for the info.
