    Your vehicle runs on coal. Therefore Greta hates you.

    Interesting points on the Enmax subsidy:

    1. Participation in the ENMAX Charge Up Pilot Program is determined on a first‐come, first‐served basis within each city
    quadrant (SW, SE, NW, NE). If all the spots in the ENMAX Charge Up Pilot Program are full, new applicants will be placed on
    the wait list and will be added to the ENMAX Charge Up Pilot Program on a first‐come, first‐served basis if additional spots
    become open. ENMAX aims to award an even number of Reimbursements in each city quadrant but reserves the right to
    award spots in any city quadrant based on demand.

    3. Participant must purchase an Electric Vehicle Charger from Participant’s choice of one of ENMAX’s qualified vendors and
    supply ENMAX with proof of purchase. The qualified Electric Vehicle Charger models will be supplied to Applicant at the
    time of enrollment and Participant will purchase one of the qualified Electric Vehicle Chargers from one of the following
    qualified vendors:
    a. Flo Services Inc.
    b. Foreseeson Technology Inc.
    c. Virtuoso Energy

    6. ENMAX will reimburse Participant 75% of the total combined cost of:
    a. an Electric Vehicle Charger purchased by Participant from a supplier listed in Appendix “A”; and
    b. related Electric Vehicle Charger installation costs under the ENMAX Charge Up Pilot Program,
    up to a maximum total reimbursement of $1500 CDN. ENMAX will only reimburse related Electric Vehicle Charger
    installation costs to have the Electric Vehicle Charger installed and will explicitly exclude any work to utility owned assets.

    9. ENMAX will not issue the Reimbursement until the Electric Vehicle Charger has been installed, ENMAX has confirmed access
    to the Participant’s Electric Vehicle Charger Data
    and Participant has provided ENMAX with any requested documentation.
    So they're essentially funding a pilot study. Get a bunch of these out there, they get access to all of your charging patterns, and then can use that data to prepare for the ramp up of EVs in years to come.

    Congrats on the the delivery Benyl - you'll love it! Just be sure to pick up some winters right away as those PS4S tires are literally pucks on ice. That first snow dump we had in Oct. 2018 caught me off guard and within some 3 weeks of ownership, I ripped off the front lip on mine sliding into a snow drift pile.

    Does the current standard auto-pilot have lane change? Or is that only in FSD with NOA?

    Only the old "Enhanced Auto Pilot" (EAP) came with lane change when on NOA; not so with the new basic "Auto Pilot" (AP). I have the old EAP and I personally don't find the NOA all that useful, unless that is, I were in the States driving on an unknown Interstate. Besides, NOA is only functional when you have a destination selected anyway so most of them time when on (E)AP, it's never in use.

    It doesn't. That comes with FSD. It's a party trick anyways, I've completely stopped using mine.

    Only 1 speck of dirt in the paint they’ve found so far. Above the metal model 3 door sill on the drivers side. Otherwise better than most of the Teslas they have had come through. Guess I got lucky.

    Matte helps a bunch with that car. Especially on the white.

    I think the paint quality is just hit or miss, mine was really good and the fit was surprisingly good. Did you end up getting a upgraded charging setup done at home?

    Nope. We are thinking of moving.

    I can charge at work. 110v at home, plus supercharger, ikea, chinook, and other places will make up the difference.

    Even [email protected] would be decent. You get what, 5-8 km per hour of charge. For a typical workday commute that should be lots. 10 hours of charging gets 50-80kms. I'd bet very few people in Calgary have that as a commute round trip (ignoring all the airdrie/cochrane/okotoks peeps). Enough to make it through the week and then hit a supercharger to top it up on the weekend maybe. Not great but it's doable with some small life adjustments.

    I know benyl's commute. That won't work, especially in winter. But if he gets free charging at work it might be OK, depending on how cold it is outside as it's not (AFAIK) a heated lot.

    If the car is plugged in @ 110V, and you preheat the battery/car, will it drain the battery or just stop charging periodically?

    I found them to be about even with the interior heater on. The heater doesn't need to be on for long though.
