    Auto-Pilot - I give up, it's downright lethal

    I use mine in this situation every day and thanks to operation Brock on the M20 have had lots of practice. I may be lucky, but I use TACC every day for the 16 mile section each way without having any phantom braking incidents. I have had them around a year ago, but when passing a truck I now...

    Chill mode performance

    My point exactly. Totally agree. 😊

    Chill mode performance

    For those that are not confident then chill mode has its place. Leaving it in sport or standard mode is not macho, nor does it make you a speed freak. What is does give you is the ability to regulate your acceleration by judicial use of the throttle pedal. I find it to be very linear and the...

    Auto Wipers are awful

    All I can say is other than only a couple of times where it has dry wiped the screen, my car auto wipers have been fine for at least the last 6 months. No issues. Slow enough in drizzle and a good speed in torrential rain.

    So frustrating! Or am I being entitled?

    Definitely not entitled. People either lack the common courtesy to abide by the rules or the common sense to read the (large) signs! Fines would sort both these issues…

    Disc brake significant grooves - performance only?

    My brakes are the same as the OP too.

    Any recommendations for tinting the rear windows in the Kent area please?

    Which are the quietest M3 tyres?

    I am interested in this too. I have a door seal kit which I haven’t git around to fitting yet, but the road noise on my M3P is very pronounced. Not because the car is quiet otherwise, but because it‘s noisy. My BMW‘s were significantly quieter as was my last Mondeo estate. Its on par road noise...

    Octopus Christmas Rebate

    I believe they said something like the amount used or if unable to retrieve readings within 7 days an average amount of all participants would be reimbursed. Found it now. Hopefully that isn’t the case.

    Tesla Spotify account login failure.

    If you set up a Spotify account on a 3 month trial, it logs in fine. I was then able to log out of that and log back in with my Tesla account and it’s been fine since. Not ideal, but worked for me.

    Navigation Update 2020

    I had this too. I created a Spotify account on the 3 month trial, which works fine. I tried logging out and then trying to log back in to the Tesla account which worked fine again.

    Range in app?

    Hi, others get carried away with their opinions around the range! But in answer to your actual question, whilst it is based on rated, you will see less than that figure. I can tell you my 2020 M3P was rated at 329 miles, but the highest figure I have got either at 100% charge or based on...

    Energy / battery - why no adaptive range?

    With the Model S you have the option in the settings of rated range or typical range. The rated range is incredibly over optimistic (as in the M3). If you change to the typical miles setting you will find it a iot more realistic.

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

    I personally use the inserts, however, I doubt you will damage the seat by not using them. You only have a bit of metal or plastic touching the seat material and properly installed they don’t move, so there should be no propensity for rubbing.

    Window tinting in Kent Recommendations

    Thanks for the recommendation. Did you have the rear screen done too? If you left the rear screen, do you find the side windows only has made a big difference? Thank you!
