    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    I eventually pushed the seat back a little on my wife's profile and saved. I'm sure she doesn't notice the slight stretch and at least now I'm not at risk of injury getting in.

    Any safety benefits of Model 3 AWD in Australia under normal driving conditions?

    I've found it quite difficult to break traction in a rwd. Wet roads haven't ever presented a problem and while I've managed to get the back end out once or twice on gravel it was only by trying hard to do just that. Personally I wouldn't trade the additional weight with the same suspension for...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    It might come down to where do you stand on Trolley problems. My ute barrels along on its self steering course without pause - I wouldn't want to test it out from the pointy end.

    Replacing Tyres on Model 3 - Tesla versus Tyre store

    I didn't bother with acoustic foam (T0) tyres - from reading around there's only 1db difference for PS4 (figured the increased likelihood of a roadside flat repair is worth that anyway).

    Replacing Tyres on Model 3 - Tesla versus Tyre store

    I used Tyresales last month: $259ea

    Spare Tyre for Model 3

    I kept the best tyre from the last set - plan to pack it for long trips so that at least Black Stump Tyres has something to work with. Doesn't weigh much and has a handy storage hole in the centre. Also packing a compressor and various tyre repair kits.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Overpass speed change I was referring to isn't from reading a sign, there are none to see - it's either an error in the database or the algorithm - at least it's consistent.

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    Near an underpass/overpass? I have a couple of spots on my routes where it's changed to the wrong road's speed limit for years.

    ALP electric vehicle policy

    They're lumped together because they're mostly speculative - I've included in the 0.6 billion. Hydrogen and CCS in this bucket could also be for gas producers to tap. Remainder ~ 450 million can only be nominated for gas, I'd consider those contracts as good as signed...

    ALP electric vehicle policy

    The interconnector and gas look like the only tangible things there. Package is 1.08 billion. 0.6 billion covers the interconnector, CCS subsidy/research, thermal solar etc. and hydrogen export (if they meant anything but Blue, they would have said so). Leaves about 0.45 billion, nothing else...

    Install solar or move to Tassie (I'd say SA but with yesterday's announcement they'll behind the curve again pretty soon).

    ALP electric vehicle policy

    I didn't notice many drops in absolute terms, more displacement by emerging producers. I was in the UK for a couple of years when their government abandoned Rover, MG etc. Production went straight across the Channel to countries with similar economic parameters. I was there building import...

    https://www.caradvice.com.au/893706/nsw-is-getting-an-electric-car-manufacturing-facility-worth-700-million/ It was only the peak in the exchange rate that broke the camel along with utter disinterest from the Federal govt. Our wage bills will be similar to Japan and Korea with China fast...

    ALP electric vehicle policy

    We successfully maintained an entire local car manufacturing ecosystem against similar offshore competitive disadvantages with only marginal interventionist economic drivers for decades. I'm not saying that Li-ion cell manufacture should be specifically targeted but arbitrary boundaries around...

    Tesla to cease RHD production

    FSD will enable LHD cars to drive backwards in these countries to match their populations.
