    Well, having owned two Ss, and enjoyed every minute, I must admit, ordering and receiving the 3 has been an ugly waiting game It started with a desire for a white interior (blue body). We wrote note after note, call after call, and after waiting THREE years, six weeks later they caved and...

    Tesla Model 3 in Australia

    Have there been any WHITE INTERIORS delivered? Although we had a very early reservation number (less than tenth in line), we waited out the system to be about to order a blue P+ with white interior. We placed the order the first day it was available, we have the VIN, but no call or email.

    Ceramic coating

    I have done three cars (two Teslas and one Merc). All the cars are off street but without cover. It has been an excellent thing to do. All cars maintained their finish and looked excellent even after four years. I plan on doing my new 3 when received. I used Matt 0411562 704 He is at 4/51...

    White Interior on the Model 3 in Oz

    Not to kick a dead horse too much, @jjsyd made the correct point: the identical car, in the same factory is already being made (UK white) and it’s black clone shipped to the Aussie customer. So there is no incremental cost. And, as mentioned, charge more for it (say $1500). And everyone is...

    Real world range in P100D

    I traded in my P85D for the P100D in late August, 2017. My P85D was one of the first here, and at 2 years old had 40Km on it range of P85D was 360Km range of P100D is 480km Although it is faster, quieter, better, I really bought it for range. Leaving on a driving trip to Adelaide in a...

    Roadster 2020

    Not sure where you are going with your comments. Of course there is no 200Kw battery available, and even if it did in PROTOTYPE form, it would not be sold in the S or X. You can easily imagine a trickle down from the roadster to the S,X, and then to the 3, not likely a trickle up...

    Sydney to Melbourne via Tesla Superchargers, how long?

    Of course it all depends on which model you have: a p85 or less will require you to stop at each of four superchargers (20 min or so) Starting full from Sydney Goulburn (Rose Cafe) Gundagai (Olivers) Wodonga (lots of choices, but our favorite is Miss Amelie, near the old train station) Euroa...

    YES, you are over prepared....but as the adventurer extraordinaire of the group, we would expect nothing less for 3 to 3. This does NOT count the two WHEELS my wife dented by hitting a deep pot hole as 100km/hr. Local shoppe re-turned them and all was well: $200 each ahhhhhh, the great...

    P85DL resale value

    As I posted a month ago or so, my case is a bit different. I had a P85DL (first L conversion in Oz) which arrived in late August 2015. It had 38KKm and was flawless. I traded it in on a new P100DL+. So the numbers get a bit mixed up. The official trade in value was $135K, but I got $90K...

    Battery needs service :(

    Sorry to hear about the battery, but it is warranted for eight years having gone around and around on the idea of an upgrade from a P85DL to a P100D (or P100DL+), Tesla won't (or can't) do it. I talked to all the service managers as well as the contact through Freemont. I said I would go...

    Great Ocean Road

    Sorry to long ago to recall. But other users on plugshare report same problem. When we chatted with them, they were aware of the issue and planned to eventually pull a new power line from the MAIN building to get three phase to the chargers. I recall that they were the issue, and not the...
