    Auto Wipers are awful

    Yep had that on the drivers side today. I assumed it was the low sun blinding the camera.

    UK Model Y Order Book Open

    They need to communicate whatever they do clearly, or you'll just get people in other brands plugging in and clogging up the Supercharger stations when they aren't actually getting anything.

    Auto Wipers are awful

    Voice commands are no good if you've got a car full of people and you're listening to tunes while driving. Killing the song into silence just so you can say "speed up wipers" is a no go without getting the piss taken out of me!

    Speed of DC 50kW CCS chargers

    I've managed to get a max of 48kwh on a GeniePoint at a Morrisons. Never any faster though. I assume that was because the battery was sufficiently warmed that it didn't need to draw any power for that.

    Climate control - How to get a consistent temperature?

    I've still found no way to turn off the passenger vent on mine, which seems permanently on with no-one in it. Very occasionally it'll randomly turn off, but no matter what settings I choose (sync on/off etc) it's always on. Completely opposite to what others have reported.

    Wheels / Alloys

    It's purely down to the size of the alloy I think. Gives the illusion of a bigger wheel overall. I'm sure the arch gaps were a bit less too, certainly at the rear.

    Minimising battery degradation

    Why does the charge port open automatically when you go into the charging section on the official app. That's annoying. I only want to check the charge limit and what the 100% gives. It closed when you back out of it but still.

    Auto Wipers disabled in cold weather?

    That's good as you don't want the wipers trying to wipe as soon as you get in the car if you haven't defrosted it enough yet.

    Should I buy 4 month old model 3

    If somebody sold it after a couple of months then there's a good chance there could be issues with it and they wanted rid. It could be genuine reasons but I'd always be wary of a new car like that being punted on.

    Wheels / Alloys

    The 18s certainly are a comfortable ride, which is what I wanted. Just the looks compared to the 19s. Incidentally I had this loaner M3 with 19s when mine was in the service centre. Certainly fills the arches better, though I'm not keen on the black wheels for a blue car.

    Wheels / Alloys

    I have the standard 18s and part of me wishes I went for the 19s. They fill the arches out better and just look nicer. Bottom pics are. my own car on standard suspension.

    UK Model Y Order Book Open

    My mate wants one of these with the 7 seats. Doesn't look like that's available yet. Any idea if that will be offered any time soon?

    Ceramic Coating and Tints

    Most places I looked at do a polish/paint correction before ceramic coating.

    UK Tesla App v4

    I've always wondered why there isn't separate buttons for heated rear window and front window. I know the front uses the EVAC but still. Sometimes I just want to de-mist the rear without the full defrost function.

    Tesla 3 long range alloy wheel colour

    It's Anthracite Grey IIRC. This was recommended as a near perfect match in a thread so I added it to my Amazon list just in case. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B073PY8SWF/?coliid=IXZN2KQFLUU2N&colid=2KYXYRA63Y4ZX&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
