    Tesla Software Updates for Model 3 New Zealand

    What issues are people having with Spotify? I use it every drive (30min commute each way) but I haven't been seeing any issues with it myself.

    Model Y Quicksilver in New Zealand?

    They have quite a bit of inventory Model Y on the site, so I imagine they're waiting for that to clear before giving people a reason to not buy those

    Tesla Software Updates for Model 3 New Zealand

    It's an Oceania/Europe thing, as a holdover from when our cars came with Spotify while US cars came with TuneIn before both were made available in all regions.

    Didn't want to use the free premium Spotify account that the car comes with instead?

    Tesla Software Updates for Model 3 New Zealand

    Unfortunately not. It uses the new FSD 12 stack which hasn't been finalised for RHD. All RHD cars are currently excluded from the new Auto Park

    Tesla Software Updates for Model 3 New Zealand

    I am having the exact same issue. If I wake the car by having it precondition, the drive mounts fine and Sentry/Dashcam is available. If I wake the car by opening the door or just opening the app, I have to reboot the car to have it see the drive.

    Tesla Software Updates for Model 3 New Zealand

    This has existed since the 2023 holiday update (2023.44.30). What's new with this update is that it will now reduce the strike count by 1 if you don't have any more strikes for a 7 day period. Previously, the strikes didn't reset until you hit all max 5 strikes allowed (even if it was many weeks...

    FSD refund? Anyone taken tesla to the dispute tribunal over this?

    The older Atom based cars get the same upgraded Auto Park capabilities as what the Ryzen cars get (where it displays all the parks that it can see and you can tap which one you want)...it just hasn't released outside of NA yet. We don't get the Tesla Vision park assist, though. I don't really...

    Ponsonby NZ service closing

    I think Rob was making a joke about Elon's frequent claims of "2 weeks" for any deadline 😉

    Ponsonby NZ service closing

    My heart bleeds for the Aucklanders that have to drive an extra 15-30mins to get to a Service Centre now 😉 Meanwhile, other populated places like Tauranga have to drive to either Hamilton or Auckland, while the whole of the South Island has to drive to Christchurch.

    FSD refund? Anyone taken tesla to the dispute tribunal over this?

    Yeah, that's why I went with EAP, although that wasn't an option until late 2020. All the same features as the FSD pre-order and you get the FSD upgrade in the future for the price minus what was paid for EAP.

    FSD refund? Anyone taken tesla to the dispute tribunal over this?

    I suspect we'll end up getting it before Europe...especially since they employed two testers in Auckland and Christchurch last year (assuming they weren't let go with the latest redundancies 😬)

    FSD refund? Anyone taken tesla to the dispute tribunal over this?

    It’s likely to have another large price increase when FSD Supervised does eventually launch here. It’s significantly cheaper than the US price at the moment

    FSD refund? Anyone taken tesla to the dispute tribunal over this?

    Did you pay for it when it was $9600 or after it jumped up to $11,400? That changes the payback period from 5 years 6 months to 4 years 9 months(ish). FSD transfer periods seem to be more common now to the point that I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes a permanent option. I suspect if you...

    Supercharger - Dunedin & Nelson

    They generally go up pretty quick, so I wouldn't expect to see work starting until around August/September if they stay on schedule.

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    Petrol vehicles pay RUC via the Fuel Excise Tax. That is their RUC equivalent

    Supercharger - Taupo NZ

    I hadn't seen this thread before, so it's cool to see the construction history of it, especially given the current events. Unfortunately, I do wonder what future this site has if the damage is enough. Rainbow Point is just down the road now and is a 9 stall V3 site so investing a whole lot into...

    Supercharger - Dunedin & Nelson

    Two new Supercharger sites, Dunedin and Nelson have popped up in the South Island today with a target of Q3 2024. Interestingly, at the time of this post, Dunedin is still an option to vote for on the "Vote for a Supercharger" poll. Dunedin: Nelson:

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    Ok, so I guess it's the latter of the two options. Since I assume nearly everyone else understands how RUC in petrol vehicles is tied to emissions, I'm going to move on from your deficiencies... No one here is arguing that EVs shouldn't pay RUC. However, the government should not be...

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    So you're just going to ignore the math above? The math that shows you how a lower emission petrol vehicle contributes less to the cost of road maintenance? How that goes against that everyone should pay their fair share? Either you're playing dumb for some stupid agenda or you really just...

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    How do you not understand how it does though?? Take a RAV4 Hybrid with a fuel efficiency of 5.3L/100km, or .053L/km. The RUC component of petrol is $0.70, so if you apply that to the efficiency, it's 3.7c/km Take a Ford Ranger Raptor (petrol version) with a fuel efficiency of 11.5L/100km or...

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    JFC it's not a hard concept to grasp lol. Because petrol vehicles pay RUC via the tax component of petrol, the amount they pay is determined by the fuel efficiency of their vehicle. The less fuel they use, the less tax they pay which means less RUC they pay per km. The amount of RUC a petrol...

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    Yeah, they do. It's the fuel excise tax component of fuel and it's the equivalent of RUC for petrol vehicles Once again, as per the above, the RUC that is paid by petrol vehicles is tied to emissions. So I'll ask again, why do you think emission generating vehicles should pay less towards the...

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    Since we're talking about slow people, you seem to have missed that currently RUC is tied to emissions for petrol vehicles. They are rewarded with lower RUC costs if their vehicle has better fuel efficiency/lower emissions. However, they are still generating emissions Please answer why you...

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    RUCs at $76/1000km puts city cars like the Leaf in the same weight category as a Ford Ranger than has a GVM 1.5 tonne heavier. At the same time, a comparable Hybrid vehicle is going to be paying half the rate as that Leaf. Based on the current governments plans for vehicle taxes over the next 3...

    Supercharger - Christchurch Hornby, NZ

    Fun tidbit about the Hornby install...they accidentally supplied a pedestal with a NACS connector rather than CCS2. It's now bagged off while it's replaced with the correct CCS2 connector

    Tesla Wellington - WOF?

    Going to Tesla would be the recommended option, at least for the first WoF. They will also do any recalls at the same time and any other warranty related work before it expires next year.

    Supercharger - Kaikōura

    The Kaikoura pin has been updated on the "Find Us" map to be where the chargers are actually going - the carpark of Bernie's Diner

    Cybertruck RHD(Japan) confirmed

    This doesn't confirm RHD. Tesla sells the Model S & X in Japan in LHD only - it's possible if they sell the Cybertruck there then it will be the same. LHD vehicles cannot be sold in NZ (unless there are very specific conditions met, which the Cybertruck doesn't meet)

    Third party chargers are now in the navigation as of the 2024.2.x update!

    It doesn't seem to be including all third party chargers but it's definitely a good start! Great for those of us in the South Island who can't rely on the navigating to a Supercharger trick to get the car to precondition for other chargers.

    It seems New Zealand and Australia will have the least restrictive Autopilot in the world

    Europe has had restrictions on Autopilot for some time now, with limits on how much it can turn and for EAP/FSD it has longer time outs between changing lanes and distance limits on summon. Thankfully, we've never had these restrictions here. Now the US is getting restrictions with more...

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    I quite liked the way NZ did it, compared to what many other countries have done. Rather than making tax payers pay for the subsidy, which is unfair to those who don't drive, those who decide to buy high emission vehicles were the ones who funded the subsidy. So those who cause the damage, pay...

    tbh, I'm surprised that this site ended up being a V3 stall site considering they've started going with V4 stalls in Australia now. Maybe the Hornby site will be V4.

    Quality Issues WOF

    When mine had a lot of its suspension done last year (both front and rear) at its first WoF it wasn't really showing any signs that there were issues. All tyres had even wear both between them all and across each tyre.

    Thankfully, no issues with mine this year. The Christchurch SC had the WoF done for me in under an hour too

    Supercharger - Christchurch Hornby, NZ

    Haven't seen anything yet. With the Q1 2024 date I'm guessing not much will happen until late Jan/Feb based on other sites that have been done recently.

    Tesla Model 3 potential export to NZ from UK

    NZ has a lot of imported Model S/X from Japan but also the UK. Tesla has helped those owners and changed over their SIM cards and changed the map locations for them so you should be fine there. You will give up any warranty that you might have remaining though - Tesla does not transfer...

    Model 3 AWD Tyre Life

    I've now done two sets on my 2019 Long Range Performance. The first set was done at 47k, the second set was done just last week at 45k. On both occasions, all four tyres had even wear, despite not bothering to do any rotations on the second set. The first set I replaced with OEM Pilot Sport 4...

    Quality Issues WOF

    Mine is about to go in for its second WoF after having a lot of suspension work done on its first WoF last year. I'm hoping it's smoother sailing this time around. If the parts that were replaced last year are now having issues again this year then that should be covered under the warranty for...

    Electric vehicle rebate and 'ute tax' killed off in December 2023

    Which is what the government has already been doing for the last decade or so lol. Excluding Tesla Superchargers, most EV chargers in NZ exist because they received a subsidy from the government.

    CCS Type 2 local recommendations for BYO Cable?

    Some people like to spend $300 on a plethora of accessories like wheel covers, HUDs, etc etc...I'm quite happy with putting money towards actual QoL improvements. I usually use my Type 2 cable at least once a week.
