    Relocating to UK - take Tesla with??

    only apple (AAPL) did that for me for all the electronics that I have.

    Relocating to UK - take Tesla with??

    If you already have it, then yes. Charged it for a few times already I've tried getting DAB radio channels whilst I've given data (either by tether or car sim). Spotify is a wee bit of a bummer but I have apple music too so if I download my music to the phone (which I do) it's not actually so...

    Recommendations for replacement tyres

    I've been having the 21" MS in Hong Kong for a few years and am in the process of shipping the car to the UK. Whilst in HK I've been using Continental Conti Sport Contact 5P (non silent) for 3 years min and usually fares quite well. Just have to get new sets every 12 months for the front (and...

    Find out how much it costs to charge your Tesla in the UK, take 5!

    indeed. one may aim to leave every morning with ard 70% charge, and max out the cheap charging every night. If you drive more 1 day then the next day you may start with 60-65%; and you still have up to 80/90% to smooth things out on days you drive less. the other thing I'd like to find out is...

    Octopus Energy referral code please

    thanks! I'll have a look. 7kWh isnt so much, considering It would take over a week to recharge from a low% I havent actually check who was 2nd actually. (oh - 7kWh/hr. much better!)

    Octopus Energy referral code please

    Heyyall. Just moved to the UK along with me MS. seems like Octopus go would be the best deal around for home charging- will need a referral (the 2nd PM will get it)... and whats the deal with charging everyone gets at home - charging speed for the 4 hours we get at 5p/kWh? Not sure if I get 3...

    So glad RHD model 3 won't be until 2019

    Once he is out of job (ie, now) he'll be ok with keeping his flat. he spends all his money in ciggies and court fees so he's still eligible for public housing anyways. You're better off worrying about the other legislators are pocketing money using their conflict of interest with the developers...
