    Mud flap plugs - need new ones

    Haha, I'd always state the obvious too, just in case some brain-freeze was involved! Thanks Medved, and VanillaAir, for the suggestions, I'll have a look.

    Mud flap plugs - need new ones

    Yes Medved, Durzel! I already took apart the plugs, inserted the outer cases and pushed in the inner plugs and although they went in ok, one is quite badly buckled and won't reform easily.

    Mud flap plugs - need new ones

    Here's the plug. It's 30mm long. Also a picture of them pushed in far as I can right now.

    Mud flap plugs - need new ones

    Hi all Apologies if this has been asked before but does anyone know the name of the black, plastic "push" plugs that secure the front mud flaps onto the wheel arch? My wife (yes, it really was her!) pulled out of a drive but not over the dropped kerb, over the regular kerb instead and the drop...

    Maps - how to update?

    True, I live in Longstanton and the roads around the new A14 junctions haven't all been updated into the maps. Obviously I know the roads myself without any aids but it's still annoying to find that at the Bar Hill junction (jn 25), the map still tries to send me the old way on/off this...

    Why is Tesla asking for payment for SC'ing when I have free SC miles left?

    Yes, I realized I had to do that extra step.

    Why is Tesla asking for payment for SC'ing when I have free SC miles left?

    Thanks for all the replies. I've added my cc details now. I was completely ignorant to the fact that these free SC miles only lasted 6 months. I assumed they had no 'use-by' date! Oh well, my home charging takes care of 95%+ of usage, SC for long trips only.

    Why is Tesla asking for payment for SC'ing when I have free SC miles left?

    Oh... That's a shafting, especially as we've all been stuck at home! Oh well, I'm guessing Tesla doesn't want to extend this, even as a good will gesture.

    Why is Tesla asking for payment for SC'ing when I have free SC miles left?

    So after a long while, I made a long distance trip today. I stopped at the new SC station at Rugby services (very nice by the way!) and after my charging was complete, I was presented with a message on screen telling me SC was unavailable and to add a payment method. I checked my Tesla...

    How to book a ranger

    Exactly for that reason they say this in the confirmation email "For a touchless Service experience, please park your car in an accessible location. You’ll receive a notification once your Mobile Technician has arrived on-site and started work. If you need to speak with our Service team, please...

    How to book a ranger

    Just tried this and when I entered "can this be fixed by mobile service" in the description of the issue, the next page had a mobile service option highlighted. OK, it's for 23rd April but I'm happy to wait than drive to MK! Thanks all!

    How to book a ranger

    Thanks for all the advice, I shall try that!

    How to book a ranger

    Apologies if this has been done to death but how do you actually book a ranger? My left side repeater error message is always on screen and I've tried the reset to no avail. I'd like to get this replaced. On the app, I tried to enter my address (Cambridge) but it only ever comes up with the...

    Blue or Red! ARGH!!!!

    I can never have a red car, family superstition going back 40 years! Had a red Maxi back in the day which was a pig from day one for my dad. Since then, he drove it into our heads never to buy a red car! I mean, it was a Maxi, of course it would break! He didn't tell us that part! So I got...

    Camera(s) blocked or blinded

    OK, and here was I thinking i'd have to fiddle with a loose wire or something... :)

    Camera(s) blocked or blinded

    Moderator comment - thread merged from "Camera warning popups randomly" I wanted to ask if anyone else sees this warning popup randomly, as I do. I clean all cameras (1 rear and 2 side indicator ones) before I set off so I'm not sure why I get this. Any solutions?

    A specific washer fluid needed?

    Sounds good to me, thanks!

    A specific washer fluid needed?

    Not knowing the answer, I'm asking! I'm guessing any regular washer fluid with antifreeze protection will suffice?

    When will you change your Tesla?

    My average keep is around 4-5yrs so the 4yr lease I have with my M3P fits that timeframe. Who knows what technological advances will be made in 4yrs but I believe they will be quite substantial given the rate of progress of BEVs just in the last few years. Also, mainstream manufacturers are...

    Charging Miles in Loot Box

    Very clunky way to see your miles remaining I have to say, considering what a high tech car this is!

    M3 Refresh

    I would have loved the chrome delete but get the car and enjoy it. If you wait for new revisions, you'll never get one!

    Octopus Go - renewal?

    I see. I think my contract is up March end so I'll look out for any mails. Thanks

    Octopus Go - renewal?

    My Octopus Go details on my account still show the 5p rate for the 4hrs overnight. I've had no email to say otherwise.

    Model 3 performance de-chrome and lower..

    I have the exact same car and I really do prefer your chrome delete. It's a lease car sadly :( and I can't be ar$ed to go through the adding/removing. Next time!

    Way points are coming!!

    I live just down the road from these chargers at the Cambridge services. If they're currently free, I'll go and try them out!

    Changing number plates...!

    Update - following Tony's advice, I've changed my plates. As mentioned, the Tesla.com strip comes off and the original plates slide out easily enough. However, I noticed they were made of thin metal and my cherished plates are a thicker plastic so they required plenty of shoving and squeezing to...

    Changing number plates...!

    Right, thanks Tony, I'll try that when I get the go-ahead

    Changing number plates...!

    Not very clear (to me anyway!). Unclip the frame holding the number plate or the second frame behind this one? Unclip how? Just ease a screwdriver in between the top of the frame?

    Changing number plates...!

    I've applied to put my personal plate on to my M3P. Just waiting for the paperwork but inspecting the current plates, I have no idea how to extract them put mine on! Is there something obvious I'm not seeing? The harness around the plate seems stuck on? Please see attached pics. Of course, its...

    Norwich Service Centre, where?

    That would be great if it happens. The nearer to Cambridge the better :D

    Thanks Beady, I'll check it out

    Scheduling charger on Octopus Go

    Right, easiest solution right now appears to be to do some maths (n+38%) when I need to charge. Thanks for all the replies!

    Scheduling charger on Octopus Go

    Replies to various comments. Yes, it's an EO charger but they recommended the JuiceNet app as the EO app itself didn't work for me. To set up the EO app, you need to scan the barcode but for some reason, it just wouldn't oblige. A friend of mine has the same charger and she could get the EO app...

    Scheduling charger on Octopus Go

    I see, that's not really automatic then is it but I get the logic!

    Scheduling charger on Octopus Go

    Yes, I saw that but how does it know to stop at 04.30 when the 5p Go rate ends?
  40. Beej4

    Scheduling charger on Octopus Go

    I know, I know, this has probably been discussed to death but I can't find the appropriate threads. I have Oct-GO tariff and a mini-pro home charger so I want to charge between 00.30 - 04.30 as and when required. On the day I need charge, I plug my M3P into the charger and it automatically...

    Private plates on Tesla Finance?

    I also just realised others are talking about financed cars as opposed to lease cars but in both cases, neither of us have the V5

    Private plates on Tesla Finance?

    As Tom Jones would say, "it's not unusual". I just started my lease through OctopusEV and I wasn't sent the V5 either. I'm also going through the process of swapping to my personal plate and have to jump through their hoops but so far, I've only just applied so I can't comment on how...

    Dartford Delivery experiences

    I signed only after I checked the car over. It's an electronic signature so doesn't really matter if you're thinking of saving some time when you're there, it takes a few seconds.

    Dartford Delivery experiences

    I picked up my M3P last weekend. I had a time slot for 1pm but the M11 and Dartford crossing had delays due to crashes so I phoned up from the car to say I'd be late, maybe 2ish. In the end, I got there 1.15pm and I thought I'd have to wait. Nope! I rang the bell and a guy got me to check in and...

    Maps - how to update?

    I've always used GMaps on my phone so it's disappointing to hear the car version is not updated as quickly as the app. We've had major roadworks that have just completed so the roads are all different. It's OK for me, I'm local but non-locals will find it a nightmare to navigate around here if...

    Maps - how to update?

    OK, thanks. A map update last month would have pulled in all the new roads, shame.

    Maps - how to update?

    I picked up my M3 performance on Saturday. Blue, black interior. Great car and getting to know it thoroughly now. One thing, the maps seem to out of date. We've had a lot of work of late in the Cambridge (A14) area but the map doesn't applied these changes to the navigation. I was under the...
