    sometimes the range sucks

    Hope to be up in that part of the country soon if Nicola doesn’t close the border! Where was the supercharger that gave you that superb rate of charging please?

    Am I mad to take delivery without a charging point installed?

    If you have a supercharger near your work/home or drive route, will not be an issue. Accept the car and enjoy.

    Recommendations for mobile car cleaning service SW London

    Normally clean my car myself but after 2 years it could do with a good clean inside and maybe outside too. Looking for recommendations for companies that come to your home and clean it there please.

    Wife, kids and dogs in a M3?

    Only 5% and short journeys. Use the CRV for those, get a Tesla M3 and enjoy the majority of your driving!

    Tesla Referral Scheme to change again

    Disappointing to change sthg that is relatively straightforward to make it more complicated through an app and test drives! Appears it’s not being abolished totally - will just stop ‘influencers’ from accumulating a million miles which they could never use anyway.

    Tesla Heathrow Service Center Detailers Experience

    I had quite a lot of paintwork repair and respraying through Heathrow in 2019. I was happy with it in the end but didn’t take it to a detailer so no professional opinion on it. Good luck. You will love the car once the delivery issues are sorted. Speaking from an initial painful experience!

    The Tesla way (or how to be weird without even trying)

    I had a good experience on my latest trip to Brooklands. Loan car arranged in advance but when I got there I asked how quickly they could do the job as if it wasn’t too long, I’d wait while they did it to avoid the hassle and waste of time sorting loaner and extra driving back and forth.

    ULED renewal

    It’s a complete pain. It seems you have to apply all over again. I send a message to them and replied saying if I was having difficulty to attach the docs replying to the email. Ie it seems you have to send the same docs as when you applied all over again.

    Lack of external noise and safety

    For pedestrians I just go v slowly until they realise you are there.

    Lack of external noise and safety

    I only pass when I can make lots of space between them and my car. I occasionally cycle and it’s horrible when any vehicle passes too close regardless of noise. Try and imagine you are the cyclist and how much space you would like. A honk would scare me if I was cycling.

    Peak Time Alps Road Trip - Charger queues?

    Went last Christmas and never had to queue at a supercharger. A granny charger adapter is useful in case need to charge at accommodation. Think it was less that £30 for the adaptor.

    A specific washer fluid needed?

    Preconditioning the car is one of the favourite perks for me. Happy to burn some e on defrosting the windows and warming up the cabin before I get in it!

    Model 3 isofix, do you use inserts, or just squeeze between the cushions

    Squeezed in. We have 2 in so no room for anyone else in the back!
