    Octopus Smart Meter Experiences

    How quickly are people having smart meters installed from the point of sign up with Octopus? I’ve been with EDF for 18 months and they still cannot provide an install timeframe for a smart meter.

    Model 3 trip range estimates

    I wouldn’t normally bother risking it but if anyone has tried to even get into Gordano services at midday on a weekend during half term you would understand the desire to head on to Membury 😬.

    Model 3 trip range estimates

    I was planning to drive from Darts Farm superchargers Exeter yesterday to Membury Services and the car (SR+) added a short stop via Gordano Bristol. When I tried to remove this stop the car advised to remain below 75mph to reach membury and I would have 4% of battery remaining. Does anyone know...

    Primacy 4 replacing [mixing] Pilot Sport 4

    I got two non acoustic pilot 4’s last Thursday through black circles and again no noticeable additional noise. If you read the reviews of both the Primacy are quite different to the PS. Noise is different rolling resistance is different and from what I recall wet braking was quite different too.

    The BMS, Range and Degradation

    Does anyone believe Tesla deliberately prevent the ability for the car to accurately capture true range and degradation? If feels like it wouldn’t be too complex for a charging related routine to be created where the car can begin to correlate range with true miles driven and then exclude non...

    Shortage of the standard foam Michelin tyres

    I had two new non acoustic pilot sport 4’s put on the back yesterday and despite the technician saying the noise will be noticeably louder I cannot hear any difference whatsoever. He said the noise on bumps would be higher pitched ie a more hollow sounding noise but it really isn’t.

    [UK] 2021.4.x

    My regen from a cold battery is now excellent. Had a broken up trip running errands yesterday and there was no excess range miles lost over actual miles where as previously the variance would be maybe 50% more range miles lost on short non preheated trips.

    Shortage of the standard foam Michelin tyres

    Did you have the pilot sport 4 on before? I was considering this switch as the primacy’s get pretty good reviews. Owners in the states said the primacys are really quiet last ages and have really low rolling resistance.

    Tyres - How’s it going?

    I’ve been researching tyres over the last week and there are no apparent stand out candidates due to all the variables involved. It seems like if they are soft the efficiency and wear suffers. If they are firmer the comfort is worse and the noise increases and then there’s all the mixed findings...

    Tyres - How’s it going?

    Is the general consensus to swap them out when they get below 3mm? A lot of people seem to wait to reach the west indicators. Would the weight of these cars suggest waiting for wear indicator tread depth would be a big no no?

    Tyres - How’s it going?

    I thought it may be useful to get a thread going on the subject of tyres. I’m 18 months in with my SR+ and have 13.5k on the clock and I’m down to 3.3mm on my Pilot Sport 4’s. Is anyone find the wear particularly significant? I was expecting to have more wear on the backs with it being rear...

    When my annual energy bill for the house came in and confirmed my M3 costs a little less than £30 a month to drive.
