    Home Charge Points Discussion and Suggestions [megathread]

    One thing to bear in mind, as I found out over the weekend and isn't really a major issue to be honest, is that Wallbox doesn't handle a change in daylight savings time very well. The Tesla handles it well but the Wallbox struggled, i suspect it's down to how it records the length of the...

    Model 3 seat kick back protectors with tablet sleeve/holder?

    So I ended up going for these. They fit really well and the material is smooth and easy to wipe clean. Got them just in time given the weather is turning, wellies are the footwear of need for my youngest and she usually finishes nursery covered in mud lol

    Had a 7.2Kw Wallbox Pulsar Plus (tethered) installed today. My install was by no means "standard" and the firm who installed did a great job! All-in it cost £1,100 and took around 5-6 hours. I'm loving the fact I don't need to run the granny charger through a window or under the garage door...

    Had my Wallbox Pulsar Plus installed today by David Pearce Electrical today. They're based in Leicester but do nationwide installs (I'm in Warwickshire). Very professional and thorough with carrying out virtual surveys. My install wasn't "standard" so they were keen to ensure they had all info...

    Model 3 seat kick back protectors with tablet sleeve/holder?

    Hi Everyone, I have a 2021 Model 3 LR and 2 kids. I'm struggling to find driver and passenger seat kick protectors with built in tablet holders. The ones I've ordered (and returned) that I've tried don't have long enough straps to get around the integrated headrests so they're a no-go at the...

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    Ah, i think we assumed they had given you a crap offer. My suggestion would be to speak to Tesla and find out what happens if your offer expires given you're estimated delivery is Nov. I suspect they'll say "reapply closer to the time and we'll give you a new trade-in estimate".

    @Abernus you should definitely shop around. Check out Wizzle, motorway.com, Cazoo to name a few. People in this thread (including me) have been able to get a great deal by selling elsewhere. These sites are typically dealers so they'll purchase your car, settle finance, and if you're in...

    It's a bit of a lottery to be honest. It depends on when you ordered, what you ordered, and possibly where you intend to collect from.

    Found out Friday that the "last mile DNO" I mentioned in a previous post has a 60 day backlog of requests to work through! What an absolute piss take! FYI if you ever have to deal with Energy Asset Networks, I feel your pain. The person I spoke to said he'd push the application for my install...

    I assume you've spoken to an electrician who has experience installing EV chargers and can handle the EV Grant paperwork/application etc? EV charge points need to be connected to the meter box directly in most cases so if your meter box is at the front of the house and the garage at the back of...

    Agreed. I think Tesla has ironed out a lot of quality issues, especially with the MIC vehicles. Just check the usual lark and ensure the accessories are present and accounted for. Speak to your SA and confirm what should come with the car for peace of mind. I found a checklist via Google and...

    Check your tesla account for documents linked to your car. There should be a registration confirmation which details the reg fee and road tax value. Also, the 1st year's road tax is included in the "on the road" price of a car if I remember correctly so if you did need road tax, it would have...

    Collected from the NEC around 90 mins ago. Positive experience and I met my SA who I've only ever spoken to on the phone!

    I think 6 weeks is about right at the moment. I think given the sheer volume of Tesla delivers this quarter, the DNOs up and down the UK must be pretty swamped with requests. Completely agree. If the UK government want to hit their 2035 deadline, there's a lot more work to be done.

    If you have a BMW finance online account then you'll be able to download all letters from the portal. If not, call them and ask them to email it over. You'll receive about 5 mins after ending the call.

    I had thought the same thing. I've already paid 20% of the invoice in cash, the remainder is being financed so it's not as if Tesla haven't had any money (or commitment) from me.

    This is frustrating the crap out of me now! Just had a shitty call from Tesla (I assume delivery team) who are well aware I'm financing through a 3rd party lender (Santander).

    Anyone collected from the NEC yet? I'm curious as to what level of charge you had when collecting. As long as it has 15% charge at a minimum I think that should be plenty to get me home. I'm guessing the "real world" range at 100% charge is around 300 miles for the LR variant so I've just worked...

    Bye bye referrals

    People whinging over a £100-£200 (most likely much less) in "fuel" when spending £40k+ on a car have got their heads in the wrong game. If £100-£200 is something to cry about, you shouldn't be in the market for a vehicle at this price point. It was a nice incentive but not one that should have...

    Yeah, the might want to see it. Give BMW FS a call and request a letter of clearance. They'll email it to and it'll also appear in your online portal/account. Once I spoke to an agent who could do it, the letter came through in about 5 mins.
  43. P

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    On the phone to them now, some agents have working systems and some don't. If you do need a clearance letter you'll probably need to call up multiple times to speak to an agent with a working system. It's a bit of a lottery... much like Tesla allocations lol Glad you won't be impacted though!

    Don't put this much effort into something like this. You're spending £40k+ on a car and working out how to save a few quid on a charge point?? Choose a charge point and place an order. My thoughts exactly. It's not that deep.

    OK, so I've got a mixed bag of quotes back. I'm looking at around £1,100 all in for my install, this includes the £350 discount from the grant for a tethered Wallbox charge point.
