    Superchargers being increased in Scotland

    But there are finally a row of chargers on both sides of the Harthill Services on the M8. Nothing to stop a Tesla using them. Don't know what they charge yet.

    UK and Ireland Marketplace - For Sale / Wanted / Free

    I would have the charging pad - bought a cheap copy for my M3 but it never really worked well. Don't think the hub will fit my March 2020 M3LR. Adrian.

    Nail in tyre in Swansea

    Just had a tyre repaired by Kwik-Fit. No charge so here is a ringing endorsement :p By the way I saw that they have a 20% off two Cross Climate 2 tyres when ordered before the end September. I have a set of CC2's which are very good on my M3.

    Tap the card

    Phone is a Samsung S8 (I know......I need a new phone!). Yes the car does unlock when I walk up to it most of the time but I have walk away lock disabled so lock with the card (in my phone case) by tapping the pillar. I don't have NFC enabled. Seems like the Tesla app is allowed to run in the...

    Tap the card

    Recently (last two months or so) my car keeps insisting that I 'Tap the Card' to drive. My phone is connected by Bluetooth and it listed in the registered keys list. Although I always carry my card this is getting annoying. Car is currently on 2022.16.3 but this started prior to the most recent...

    [UK] 2022.16.x

    My M3LR (2020) seems to have the upgrade available symbol on the screen (green down arrow thing) but nothing on the app so seems to be stuck. Any ideas?

    Power reduced error - how common is it and will it come back?

    In my case it turned out that a gasket in the 5 way coolant bottle had come loose and blocked the flow. Once fixed the car was perfect.

    Driving to Val D'Isere

    Charging on the way to and from Austria was simply great. Mostly we we went to Tesla SuperChargers when doing any distance. At one service station I used a public 350kW charger - but really just to see if it worked (it did). In Zell am See where we stayed for one week there was something of a...

    Driving to Val D'Isere

    Well got back safely after 25 days away. Have to say the M3LR was just great. 2,236 miles on the German Autobahn and through Austria. Buzz Rack (from www.roofbox.co.uk) worked perfectly. 298Wh/Mile average for the trip compared to my lifetime value of 268Wh/Mile was not bad at all. Michelin CC2...

    3 Phase Fast Charging on EV Tariffs

    Latest software update on the Tesla seems to sorted some issues with the Zappi. Last charge before I left for Austria I forgot to switch off the Zappi timer - this time it did not interfere with the charge timer in the Tesla. Hoping this is a permanent improvement.

    European Road trip (Feb 2022)

    Just drove from Edinburgh to Innsbruck (Austria). Simply no problem at all. SuperChargers everywhere. One even had 53 free stalls. Used one non-Tesla charger although I did not need to but stopped for coffee and it was at the service station (6 x 300kW chargers). According to the Tesla manual...

    Driving to Val D'Isere

    We are on the way to the Alps tomorrow (Wed23rd Feb). Newcastle-Amsterdam ferry, stopover in Heidelberg, arrive Innsbruck Friday. 8 Days skiing there, then 7 days in Zell am See then a further week where the snow looks good. M3 all prepared with winter tyres, chains, ski rack on the tow...

    Tyre Wear

    So just fitted a set of CC2 tyres to the M3 in preparation for departure to Austria on Wednesday. Asked the tyre place to check the alignment even though Tesla checked and adjusted in January when I found excessive tyre wear. Guess what - they are miles out! So much so that the tyre shop did not...

    Tow bar no longer available for new Model 3 orders?

    I use the tow bar all the time. Just bought a Ski carrier to fit on it. Would not have bought an M£ if this was not an option as (in 2020) the M3 was the only EV, other than the Jaguar, that could have a tow bar.

    Phantom braking to be investigated

    I don't have Phantom Braking because I gave up using TACC in anything other than either empty roads or queues. But I am pleased that they are investigating this. Note however the report says M3 and MY from 2021 - is there a difference to earlier cars? My M3 is 2020 delivery and probably a 2019...
