    South of London Superchargers

    I'm not too far away. I wish they had some in west Wales. Pleased to see some planned for Devon and Cornwall on the map.

    Opinions on alloy damage please?

    Yep, stone chip.

    Having trouble unpluging home charging cable...

    From the manual: WHITE: The charge port door is open. Model 3 is ready to charge and the connector is not inserted, or the charge port latch is unlocked and the connector is ready to be removed. BLUE: Model 3 detects that a connector has been plugged in. BLINKING BLUE: Model 3 is communicating...

    Having trouble unpluging home charging cable...

    This. I understood the light needs to turn white before you can detach the cable.

    Tyre pressure warning

    Check the sticker on the door shut For the right pressure. No need to reset anything unless you changed sensors.

    Auto Wipers are awful

    Deep Rain I believe it was dubbed. Utter Bollocks I’d call it.

    M3LR 2020 fan running when vehicle unattended

    I think it is normal, from the Maintenance section of the owners manual: '… Also, even when not in use, you may hear Model 3 emit a whining noise or the sound of water circulating. These sounds are normal and occur when the internal cooling systems turn on to support various vehicle functions...

    Considering winter tyres

    Can't say I noticed that myself, but what any individual perceives as undesirable noise in a car is subjective. Either choice will be fine I'm sure.

    M3P 20" Tyre Pressure and Tread Wear

    If you can find somewhere that has Hunter HawkEye Elite equipment, they can do it. I just dug out my last invoice and it was for £56.40.

    Considering winter tyres

    Numerous YouTube videos about it including this one posted by @Dangerous Fish were what finally persuaded me. Some rather hairy experiences with 20" BMW run flats made me consider the idea in the first place.

    M3P 20" Tyre Pressure and Tread Wear

    I'd shop around for the alignment. There's nothing special about a Tesla in this regard (except for having to take a metal shroud off the rear motor to get at some of the adjustment points), and I got it done for under £100 last time at a place where they charge based on the number of...

    Considering winter tyres

    It's not really about snow, but rather the poor performance of the summer tyres in temperatures below 7ºC, particularly in the wet. Your braking distance will be significantly diminished on the A40/M40 when cold even if the road is salted. That's why cross-climate tyres are probably a better...

    Charge to 100% break it down for me

    😂 With all the apps at our disposal, it isn't hard or inconvenient to time the full charge for your intended departure time, nor is it difficult/inconvenient to avoid completely depleting the battery. Even if you did leave it sitting full for a while on occasion, it wouldn't be the end of the...

    Sentry mode has triggered alarm state

    Was everything OK @Mrklaw?

    Charge to 100% break it down for me

    It is. Even iPhones try to intelligently control the last bit of charging so that it is full just as you start using it again in the morning. I suppose the difference is that the modems and background app updates start to drain the battery immediately whereas the car won't until you drive it. I...
