    Reduction in range - roof box/bike

    We quite regularly have 3 mountain bikes on the roof, with front wheels removed, depending on conditions it adds 25-30% around 70mph. If you are are in strong winds or rain expect the impact to be significantly more. That said, due to the drag vs speed if you drop down towards 60 it becomes...

    Dead MCU - options...?

    Thanks, I have read about the consumer law piece in the U.K. but does anyone actually know if anybody has been successful with this? It does seem a very poor fault and something that is just a letter of time for anyone with MCU1. I spoke to Tesla and they are quoting around 1800 for an MCU and...

    Michelin Crossclimate+

    I spent a lot of time trying to decide what to do regarding tyres as I needed a new set and we were driving to the Alps. I ended up going for the new Vredestein Quadrac pro. It had some good reviews, especially in the wet, but I was concerned that one said it was not very efficient; having...

    Model X snow chains for French Alps

    Also driving down for the first time over new year. I had a similar thoughts but with a model S, in the end I went with 4 snow socks but with all season tyres. The reviews for the snow socks seem good and in reality I think it will just be the very last bit of the journey that might need them...

    19" Winter Vs All Season Tyres - Midlands Wet Winter Weather

    I struggled to find anywhere that had the cross climate in stock, albeit I was looking for the 245/45 R19. Ended up going for the Vredestein Quatrac Pro All season. Tyre reviews had some useful stuff: 2019 19 Inch Performance Winter Tyre Test - Tyre Reviews

    It might feel a bit strange not having a number to easily ring your local service centre but I have just had my first dealings with their mobile service and it was great. I booked a slot at Leeds service centre online then they contacted me to say that the job could be done by a mobile...

    Routing with no traffic data

    Not sure if it is related to my masters update to v9.0 2019.20.2.1 but I cannot get traffic to load on the map and when using the nav I get the routing with no traffic data. Online routing is selected in options, I have tried reboots. I have 3G signal (tried in different locations) and Spotify...
