    PodPoint install problems

    Who did you pay to fit it? What is direct to the installer or was it podpoint themselves? You need to speak to whoever you had the contract with for the job. It's up to them to fix it, not give you a half arsed fix.

    Now it doesn`t like my 3 phase charger

    As above - you need to "elimiate" each piece of the puzzle first..... Try a different cable if you can Try another 3 phased charger if you can Get someone else to use the work place charger and see if they have issues. Without all the information - Tesla will just say it's a faulty charger. I...

    Car door dented, caught on Sentry - help!

    Any claim, regardless or fault or otherwise WILL affect your future insurance costs. You will be asked have you made a claim at your renewal time - you say yes, then select "no fault" etc - It's still noted as a claim. You might not pay your excess or affect your NCB but it will 100% affect...

    Low Range In New M3LR

    Change the miles readout to % and forget about it. Just drive the car. Charge when you need to. No one ever questioned petrol/diesel MPG realworld versus what the brochure said.

    Tesla charger installation question

    Unless your paying by the hour per man - who cares how long it took? If it works and your happy with the cost before the install, then move on. Mine took 2 visits, 2 men, about 5 hours total but it was a fixed price so it could have been 20 hours and 10 men, doesn't make a difference to me.

    Sharing my no driveway/on street parking setup

    I think you've got a claim waiting to happen there. I commend the effort you've put in, but that is a claim waiting to happen in today's culture. 100%. No way someone isn't going to trip over that, ride their bike over it and scrap the car when they wobble etc.

    Anyone NOT had any issues with their Model 3?

    6 months in. Zero issues on pick up, however developed a fault where it would only charge on DC and not AC. Went back to Tesla for 2 weeks, they changed the "penthouse unit" (as they call it) - Had a loaner Model S. Picked up and all good. You'll always here more from people who have issues...

    Destination Charging Edinburgh

    Dundee?!?! That's 65 miles and 90 minutes away from Edinburgh Best option would be superchargers at Eurocentral (dakota hotel) - then you can jump back on the M74 pretty easy

    Paint - Is it thin?

    Wrap your own centre console - it's pretty easy to do. Save yourself some money. As for the paint work - I guess that's your call. I know i've not bothered with wraps/PPF etc

    Console wraps

    wrapped my middle console at the weekend - pretty happy with the results. Good quality 3M wrap from Abstract Ocean. Next on the list when the weather is nicer is to switch out the horrible registration plates/holders for stick on ones.

    M3 SR+ Public Charging Times

    50kw chargers - I would suggest working on a realistic 30-35kw max speed. Never seen one over 40kw yet. 3 pin is really an overnight job - adds at best 8-10 miles an hour.

    How reliable is the 3 key app?

    I've never taken the keycard out my house. 5 months, 4k miles. Think it's in my drawers somewhere. Zero issues.

    Rolec Smart Charger losing connectivity

    My understanding is that is not wifi at all - it's got a sim card in it which is used for the data/app etc. I may be completely wrong - but worth checking before paying for a "signal booster" I may be wrong - I don't use the smart options at all on my Rolec - I use it as dumb charger.

    Which home wall charger - for a pain free charge?

    Real world SR+ at this time of the year on Scotland - I get about 170 miles on a "full" charge - efficiency is around 70%

    Rolec smart charger quote, is it reasonable?

    That's a rather sweeping statement - Many many people have Rolec chargers and have zero issues with them. They have also upgraded the internals from the initial batch a few years ago that had issues. The newer ones have had very few problems. Mine has been fine for 5 months. Zero issues.

    Rolec smart charger quote, is it reasonable?

    I was £1100 minus £500 OLEV minus £300 Energy Trust Grant (in Scotland) - paid out my pocket £200 for a Smart Rolec. That included about 15m external cabling and earth rod under the floorboards.
  26. B

    Which home charger are you using?

    Rolec via OLEV grant but you can buy them yourself direct from various places. It's a "smart" charger but I just use it as a dumb one - never used the smart functions at all OcUK's Russinating i presume?!?

    Edinburgh SC - Ratings/Reviews/Payment

    Pickup was fine - no rush, plenty of time for people to review cars. No issues with my car on pickup. Warranty issues - I had some charging issues on AC chargers - car went back to them, had loaner for 2 weeks, good communication during the process - no issues and all sorted. Bank transfer - did...

    Tesla Model 3, another charger recommendations

    My Rolec has been fine - used both grants (£500 & £300) so overall cost to me was £220. Despite it's "smart" options, I use it as a dumb charger - plug in when needed etc. Never used smart options via app or anything. https://www.grantfundedchargingpoints.co.uk/ Used above website and a local...

    Buying advice from a company car to Tesla

    agreed - my understanding, after discussion with my accountant, is that the 4p a mile I claim from my company, is the full amount I can claim for business miles. I can't then claim the difference between that and the old 45p a mile from previous ICE car days.

    Home Charger Installers

    I used Everwarm (livingston based i think) - total cost to me after grants was £200. (job was £1000 - £500 OLEV plus £300 EST grant back to me) Rolec installed - good job, 20m outside cabling and revisited me after they turned up with an un-tethered unit the first time. Returned 2 weeks later...

    Tempted, very tempted

    I never said anything about topping up each and every day...... Think you need to re-read what I posted.... Of course in a perfect world every one would be driving Performance/LR - however, that's not always the case And personal attacks/insults on whether I "cheaped out" can be kept to...

    Tempted, very tempted

    Opposite for me - SR+ was more than enough, not paying £8/9k for the range and a couple of other bits on the LR. I do 15k a year for client meetings/personal use etc etc - I travel twice a year to PReston from Ayrshire, and 1 or 2 times a year to Manchester airport and back for holidays. For...

    Full Charge Range on SR+

    This time of year - aim for around 65/70% efficiency - heaters/heated seats/wind/rain/cold etc etc all affect the range. Trust me when I say - switch to % instead of miles - then just enjoy driving the car and charge when you need to. it's simple. No one ever moan/complained/talked about not...

    Charging Woes.....

    Simply put - ignore the app all together. Rolec works fine as a "dumb" charger - I simply don't use the eve.energy app at all. I simply plug it in when I need charger and leave it at all other times. Does the car charge fine on UMC/public chargers etc? If you suspect the Rolec is the issue...

    Go with this thought: Ignore the numbers for a second - have you got to where you were going on each drive? Have you found yourself needing to charge in any sub 10% battery situations on a drive? Have you taken any longer time to get to where your going that you did before? Have you enjoyed...

    Rolec Tethered Charger ... help needed please

    Rolec - has it been initiated by the installer? Does the car charge on public chargers ok? Have you tried UMC (3 pin charger) I use it as a dumb charger since the app can be flaky at the best of times
