    Model 3 RWD used price?

    The Tesla site states that the offer price is only valid for 30 days, so given the 3 months or more EDD any offer now will be well expired by then.

    Model 3 RWD used price?

    Yes of course, I feel a bit stupid for asking now. Thanks,

    Model 3 RWD used price?

    Thought I might ask for your collective views on a fair price for me to expect for my M3 RWD. I have just ordered a MY RWD and will need to sell or exchange the M3 in December. Registered new on 10 Mar 22, Black inside and out with Aero wheels and has EAP, currently has 2,500 miles at 5.5 months...

    Standard Range Model Y Delivery Group

    Once you finish entering your details and have completed the registration process you get the above screen with the "Next Steps" & "Completed Tasks" forms and at this point the Edit Design option that you could previously click on (on the right beside the Estimated Delivery: ) is no longer...

    Standard Range Model Y Delivery Group

    I think the suspension is the weakest point in the car, I think the same is true for my M3 though as it does not like potholes and poor roads either. I have always put this down to the extra weight with the battery but a couple of other BEVs seem to be able to overcome this and still provide a...

    Standard Range Model Y Delivery Group

    I've just ordered the SRY today in white (bog standard spec), I've been waiting for the SR version to come out. I took the demo LRY for a test drive first to make sure it was as I expected (first time I've driven the MY), nicer high driving position and better visibility than my M3 and easier to...

    Have I been charged for charging?

    Very useful to know - thank you.

    Have I been charged for charging?

    I visited a shopping centre near my home today and there are 2 Tesla destination charging spaces in the car park. So far I have always used the UMC at home but as I was at 72% SoC and would be an hour I thought I would plug in and try things out. I just plugged in and off it went, 32A according...

    Survey Do You Need a UMC?

    Northern Ireland does not currently have a single SuC though the Belfast SC has been on the 'coming soon' list for a while (but only 2 stalls I think). My nearest SuC is a few miles over the border towards Dublin and is about 70 miles from my home. There are a few 11Kw to 22Kw chargers around...

    Survey Do You Need a UMC?

    A bit off topic but - Elon has had some bad experiences with banks holding him (Tesla) to ransom (do x or we will withdraw your loans, e.g. 2018 SEC settlement) and so is determined to keep Tesla debt free now that all loans are repaid to avoid this again - hence the very large cash reserves...

    Survey Do You Need a UMC?

    When I bought my M3 RWD (LFP) I had planned to buy a charger and have this installed, but now I am not so sure I will need one. I am retired and only drive 100-120 miles per week so get to about 50% SoC after a week's use. I have only ever used the UMC so far, its just plugged into my garage and...

    Reversing bug?

    Many thanks for the feedback. I personally consider it a bug (a little one) as whilst the car has reverse selected I would have expected the reverse camera to be the default view (if I am doing nothing else with the screen) rather than the nav screen (I hardly need nav whilst in reverse!). I...

    Reversing bug?

    I got into my car this morning (M3 RWD) and selected Reverse as the car was parked nose-in to the house, looked the mirror and saw the rear screen was covered in rain from earlier, so touched the cabin temperature, turned on the heated rear window then touched cabin temperature again to dismiss...

    Finance companies who provide lease/PCP/HP contracts will have commercial finance arrangements with Tesla, they will each have a credit limit set by Tesla, say £5m for example. So as each car ordered by that finance company is delivered to a customer Tesla will invoice the finance company for...
