    Tracker for insurance

    Had a similar challenge from our fleet insurer, ended up insuring Tesla on a different policy with Direct Line, far cheaper and no tracker. One thing to watch out for is the tracker package we have on our hydrogen Hyundai Nexo comes with a fob that you have to keep on your person when driving...

    Taptes roof rack

    Fed up taking my VW Touareg whenever I want to transport bikes. have an M3P so tow bar mount not an option and a rear mount tailgate rack will destroy boot spoiler in seconds.... so looks like roof bars are the only option anyone any experience with the taptes ones, look considerably cheaper...

    [PSA] Do not tilt your front seats fully forward...

    Just to update, having had my vanity mirror break due to the design fault. I ultimately had it replaced by Tesla as a goodwill gesture.

    Autoglass Windshield Replacement

    Autoglass in Gloucester, fitted a replacement rear screen to my M3P a couple of weeks ago. Brilliant service, clearly knew what they were doing, better aligned than the original!

    [PSA] Do not tilt your front seats fully forward...

    Just realised what the plastic film that covers so many bits of the car on delivery is for. Mistakenly I had assumed it was just a lack of pdi and preparation. I was wrong it is actually a very sophisticated lamination system, so glad I left mine in place ;)

    [PSA] Do not tilt your front seats fully forward...

    Trying to extract a sweet that had entered a vent under the seat because Tesla are too tight / incompetent to have a grill / mesh on it.....

    UK accessories for RHD Model 3 [megathread]

    Ok, not happy,.... I too have a broken passenger interior mirror, due to the inherent design fault. I will be interested to see how Durzel gets on, I don’t intend paying for a replacement! Hacked off already at the prospect of wasting Tuesday morning at an Autoglass centre whilst the replace...

    Auto Pilot... Am I doing it wrong?

    I’ll have a look at the offset. In a way it is good to know this issue is not me, but disappointing it is so rubbish. I’ve got a Hyundai Nexo and that copes so much better.... Well it did when I last drove it, not been able to get any hydrogen since March ;)

    Auto Pilot... Am I doing it wrong?

    Did a 100 miles on the M5 last night... Whilst fairly quite traffic, still had to change lanes to overtake slower moving traffic. Theoretically if I am in the middle lane, cruise control set 75 (this is theoretical), auto pilot turned on, blue steering wheel icon illuminated. Indicate to enter...

    Don’t jest, opened the bonnet of one of our others cars that has been sorn since COVID, only to be greeted by a mouse in the engine bay... poison already administered!

    Ok, I’ve been stupid.... Somehow a strawberry bonbon fell on the rear floor. I made the mistake of not immediately stopping and picking it up. By the time I finished driving it had vanished. Except it has not vanished it is now merrily rolling around inside what sounds like a tube, every...
