    A new way of doing insurance..

    This is not that surprising. More surprising to me is that there isn't a cancelation charge/admin fee on top of that. Last cancellation i did they wanted an admin charge which depending on what you paid or how long there is left on the policy, you might get less back or actually have to pay...

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    I saw that £58k figure (I keep checking just out of curiosity). Great if you bought standard or maybe even with white seats/colour change and wheels upgrade you could still break even with a few miles put on it.... By the time you bought acceleration boost and the tow bar on top of all that it...

    towing electrics 13pin to 7

    Best price for the exact same unit is from eurocarparts so I found. For those purchasing for model Y, you will need to shave one of the sides in order for it to twist into place. That is correct. Also trailer logo on screen will be red not blue if there are connection issues. Blinker issues...

    UK Charge Point Installer Recommendations

    Have a look on checkatrade as im sure ive seen local ones with good reviews on there and wish I had gone with any of them even without the grant back then. Ordered one from octopus EV at beginning of December, fully paid a couple of months ago and still have nothing! Used them for our first...

    towing electrics 13pin to 7

    This seems like it could be the best option for you. I will need a copy of your logbook and ID as to have a number plate made for you and (from this I will have your address as to come and fit the towbar so you dont get dirty). Some forward planning will save you having a rant next time. Live...

    One to watch?

    Didn't watch it...too late already bought four... Ill wait for should you have bought an electric car...on that note, I wonder if there were equivalents of diesel cars but judging by the comments on here it sounds like its UK gold material.

    Dotted line - regen

    You can improve the the regen by preconditioning even if just for a bit before departure in the morning. The LFP battery in your car takes a fair bit longer to warm up in comparison to the previous generation cars with "older" type of battery from experience of running both. One positive you can...

    using M3P whilst MY in for repairs

    Yes I have seen all the videos and yes I have AB. Im not professing its a must but the OP came across as having something in common as me hence I gave my opinion. My money is not wasted if it makes me happy ;)

    using M3P whilst MY in for repairs

    Sounds like you need the AB. The acceleration on your Y will become more relentless and predictable on power.

    UK Charge Point Installer Recommendations

    Here is my take... these "chargers" should not be installed unless they comply with the latest reg's.... If so, the manufacturer should supply the extras that are required to comply if needed. Other than that, it would be just another appliance like a dishwasher or a washing machine... Did you...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    As mentioned, you can try it and get a refund. However to answer your question its yes and no. Its great without it but it now feels "whole"

    UK Charge Point Installer Recommendations

    Yep. Do check it every time the time changes. Its been like this since ive had it (October 2020). I should really have reported this earlier but thought it would be sorted by now since they are quite good at updating the app and charger. Its been faultless except for this hence as it stands not...

    UK Charge Point Installer Recommendations

    I suggest you and anyone else with one of these go into the app and check what your schedule times are if you ave them setup for any cheap rate. These get messed up every time the clocks change!

    Wiki UK and Ireland Supercharger Site News

    That thought/assumption is a bit twisted though. It was the person buying the car that got the grant.

    As much as I dont dislike the idea, I think employing the of old "dodgy companies" that will tow the these cars away (subject to signage) would not go a miss and save a vicious circle/feud.
