    Relocating to UK - take Tesla with??

    If you already have it, then yes. Charged it for a few times already I've tried getting DAB radio channels whilst I've given data (either by tether or car sim). Spotify is a wee bit of a bummer but I have apple music too so if I download my music to the phone (which I do) it's not actually so...

    UK For Sale / Wanted / Free [closed for new items]

    not so much the car. its stuck one way or another. it took like a month extra to land in the uk thanks to brexit related port issues, then virus related delays with the registration. but yeh. now i'm looking into the grant vs using the tesla charger... PS: HK is type 2 too

    Recommendations for replacement tyres

    I've been having the 21" MS in Hong Kong for a few years and am in the process of shipping the car to the UK. Whilst in HK I've been using Continental Conti Sport Contact 5P (non silent) for 3 years min and usually fares quite well. Just have to get new sets every 12 months for the front (and...

    Find out how much it costs to charge your Tesla in the UK, take 5!

    indeed. one may aim to leave every morning with ard 70% charge, and max out the cheap charging every night. If you drive more 1 day then the next day you may start with 60-65%; and you still have up to 80/90% to smooth things out on days you drive less. the other thing I'd like to find out is...

    Octopus Energy referral code please

    thanks! I'll have a look. 7kWh isnt so much, considering It would take over a week to recharge from a low% I havent actually check who was 2nd actually. (oh - 7kWh/hr. much better!)

    Octopus Energy referral code please

    Heyyall. Just moved to the UK along with me MS. seems like Octopus go would be the best deal around for home charging- will need a referral (the 2nd PM will get it)... and whats the deal with charging everyone gets at home - charging speed for the 4 hours we get at 5p/kWh? Not sure if I get 3...

    So glad RHD model 3 won't be until 2019

    Once he is out of job (ie, now) he'll be ok with keeping his flat. he spends all his money in ciggies and court fees so he's still eligible for public housing anyways. You're better off worrying about the other legislators are pocketing money using their conflict of interest with the developers...

    Tesla Air Conditioning

    Had anyone experienced the follows (I've booked to be checked up next month when I'm out of town, but anyways) on a 1-2 yrs MS. 1) Ventilation is open between level 5 and like 10 (I thought they updated the software so its open =<4). I normally like to run the AC at 6-7 but in and near tunnels...

    Wife's new car = ICE thanks to FRT

    I've seen a few 911s and some M3/M5s being replaced by MS/X here. that said, many households have multiple cars to start with. but at least they have used an EV rather than an ICE. (Who can resist walking into a cool car on a hot day AND not needed go breath fumes on a tuesday/wednesday? I dont...

    Will the crony HK Gov reverse idiotic FRT decision?

    Will the crony HK Gov reverse idiotic FRT decision?

    i have charging at home and know where to charge for "free". But just went to YOKO mall the other day and found out SHKP charges 6HKD/15 mins for charging at the "slow/medium" ports..... Also, Aberdeen Marina Club charges sth like 60HKD/hr for charging. Where else in HK that charges for charging...

    So glad RHD model 3 won't be until 2019

    that case was rubbished by the judges. longhair aside the total EV FRT "losses" is far less than the 3 BS bridges to china (SZ Bay, the one to Macau, and the one at Fan Leng).

    [On-Going] Model S-Unfriendly Car Park List & Blacklist

    i can say 90% of public housing estate has parking spaces thats hard for Teslas to park. I believe they are substandard parking space according to the HKPSG guidelines since public housing (by ASD) doesnt have to adhire to PlanD standards and BD Approval

    Superchargers in Hong Kong are not for long distance travel

    Uber drivers and super chargers

    i believe the SCs in HK have a different meaning as they are in the US. Tesla's marketing in HK is different from the US. the SCs are used differently. as for selling power, Im sure Tesla can market the charge differently... esp they charge only when the car ISNT charging, not when it is.

    Uber drivers and super chargers

    if they could just ban repeating usage of carparks (typical users wont need to supercharge more than 2-3 times a week); going to airport only takes up 120km from the city centre - so unless you commute between the airport and sai kung..... then in that case you should have your own charger already

    Easy to get L2 charger installed in HK?

    depends. most need permission from landlord, developer and electric company regarding connections and insurance. old developments are harder than new ones due to amperage (?) surplus. electricity is billed as all other equipments in the same zone. we have no differencial pricing besides...

    EVs in Hong Kong: Segways, e-bikes, pedelecs ...

    what mark is also intending, is that, as long as you are at somewhere that isnt a road and isnt a public lot, you could, in effect challenge if they have a legal right to stop you from propelling an EV (say, MTRC, Airport, perhaps the 6 pier terminals with immigrations and customs presence too)

    [On-Going] Model S-friendly & Best Car Park List

    did you mean the "shared" ramp? i've never gone past the gate for hotel car park but the shared ramp should be wide enough (there are minicoaches for the hotel). the mall car park has tight ramp but id guess its managable with care.

    My admittedly premature 70D review

    out of everything, all i care is the turning radius (if i can do a 180) and how much space i need for a 3 point turn. Never driven an S-class (only the long wheelbase) but the MS i could easy do a 180 with 3-lane space (yesterday, on Des Vouex Road West) and for 0-100, i do it all the time now...

    My admittedly premature 70D review

    which merc do you drive? I've done some comparasion whilst looking for length (car lift issues) and find it better than cars of equiv size (S Class non L-wheelbase, some SUVs) so ya, 3 point turn quite comfortably at typical road widths of 2 lanes
