    Summon not present? UK Model Y

    I rarely use summon (never smart summon) but have used it after parking in a car park and then thinking the car sticks out too much at the front. I walk round the back use summon to move it back a few inches. Hardly amazing stuff, but useful when on your own 'to see you back' without hitting a...

    is it normal to take 10mins for car to initialise from start !

    I also get this but only for about 30 seconds after driving off. I find it odd that there are no indicator sounds. I also get the eSOS warning periodically and that is more annoying as it doesn’t seem to clear during the drive. I’m on 24.6.5, which is not the latest, but haven’t been offered...

    [UK] 2022.24

    I've just been offered 24.6.5 upgrade, from 20.8, which seems to be fairly rare. Either just a bug-fixed version of 24.6 or a MY specific version. I'm on std update setting, hence the slower rollout.

    [UK] 2022.24

    according to not a tesla app 24% of cars are on 24.6 or higher, therefore I am surprised I haven't seen more negative feedback hitting the forums. I'm still on 20.8, amongst the 36%, and was planning to hold off updating... but perhaps Tesla Vision is not as bad as we fear? But I do agree that...

    Has anyone traded their 3 for a Y and regretted it?

    I certainly have no regrets. I too traded a 2019 USA M3 LR for the MY LR, due to trade-in value and renewing the warranty, but actually I feel the car is also better for my needs - the build is better, it is more solid and quieter - the efficiency is better due to the heat pump, trips that...

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    Imagining a (silly?) conflict scenario, what would you all do here... Say there were 3 supercharger spaces in a row available, I'd normally go for the middle one, plugging in on the passenger side of course. Then say a different EV turned up with driver-side charging, they wouldn't be able to...

    [Repair] Just bumped into someone in the car park…

    Someone scraped my M3 bumper when I was parked and wanted to pay for the repairs outside of insurance. I got a quote from a Tesla approved body shop who said I needed a new bumper (it was cracked by the fog light) and a respray - quoted £3.3k. Other party said they knew a body shop that could...

    Acceleration Boost 2022 (UK)

    I had AB on my 2019 M3. I always felt that, although statistically impressive, there was a lull in the acceleration of the standard LR. AB filled this for me making the car's acceleration feel more 'linear' and predictable. I'm not one to race off from traffic lights or record my 0-60...

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery inc the shipping thread for posts with no shipping news

    Yes same here, although according to speedtest or whatismyip it is still coming out of the Netherlands, it seems we are getting UK websites now.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Is the M3 on a UK eSIM and the MY on a Netherlands one? If so wonder if that could be related?

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Out with the old, in with the new. Traded the M3 for the MY today. Looks pretty good, although maybe fine scratches are just more difficult to spot on the white. Had to lower the PSI all round, as was about 50psi when collected. I have a couple of air bubbles in the PPF - do you think it is...

    Looks amazing! (I have ordered the same spec. 😊). How is the ride on the 20s ?

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Interesting, maybe trade in values have peaked. :( I too had a confirmation lower than my estimate and given that my car looked pretty immaculate in the photos (only polished it this weekend) I was shocked that it had dropped hundreds of pounds. Brought back bad memories of car dealers...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I do wish Tesla would just move on from this end of quarter numbers game. I've put £100 down on an inventory MY and I've just received a text asking me to collect it on Monday, in less than 5 days (no real choice, then or lose car). I don't even have a confirmed trade in value, or statement...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    When I spoke to Tesla about how I get the first initial deposit back I threw in a couple of other questions... Location? Southampton Can you refund EAP if you dont like it? no What date will collection be so as to arrange insurance? 26th (!) to 31st When will I get my registration number? Oh...
