    Tesla Model 3 headlights alignment example

    Strange isn‘t it - loads of threads on adjusting headlights on our £50k+ cars. Let me count how many other cars I’ve had to adjust the headlights on. Oh…none. Oh sorry, I bought a classic Triumph Stag once and I had to do it then.

    Alarm function greyed out

    Possibly. I’ve never had a car in the past 20 years or so where you can disable the whole alarm - only motion sensors.

    Alarm function greyed out

    You’ve never been able to switch the alarm off in a 3/Y. In my 3 I could switch off tilt/intrusion (if Sentry is disabled), but in the Y there isn’t even as button for tilt/intrusion.

    What Car EV feature

    I disagree that the article is pointless. Of course you would hope that people aren’t stupid enough to get down to zero, just like you would hope people aren’t stupid enough to let their ICE car run out of fuel…but it happens, so it’s worth knowing what to expect if the worst happens and for...

    What Car EV feature

    What Car? magazine have a done a feature on how far a selection of EVs will travel (on test track) and what happens when they run out of power. Tesla is still the most efficient but interesting that they’ve said that the 3 and Y both behave differently when they run out of power.

    Yep - let’s get sticky on buttons to fix Tesla’s shortcomings.

    “Tesla - because we know you love a workaround”. I wonder how they get feedback on requests and decide what to put in the software. For instance you still can’t open the glovebox while watching YouTube. And yet we get stupid horn sounds.

    Don‘t need EAP or FSD. Make sure you have it switched on in the menus somewhere.

    Topfit Steering Wheel Display

    I quite like that. Could you elaborate on the workaround you had to do with regards to the cable please?

    Model Y corrective steering annoyance

    Pretty much every time on my Model Y, whenever I get within about 60cm of the white line on the right hand edge of a dual carriageway I get the panic alarm and ‘corrective steering’ message. On my 3 this happened precisely zero times. Anyone else or just me?

    BMW i4 - Test Drive

    I was very impressed with the i4. Quality and refinement were way ahead of the Model 3 and Y. But by the time I specced it up it was approaching £65k. But if I had the money and I was happy to forego some efficiency, it would definitely be on my shortlist above Tesla.
