    Bug in Forward Collision Warning (FCW) setting?

    you're not going to be able to get it to stay at "off" all these safety systems have to be on by law each time you start the car. Late should be ok though.

    Tessie App

    Smart summon doesn't really work in the EU - standard summon doesn't really care where you are. My Tesla ticket was closed as they say it's a problem within the app they are aware of and are fixing

    Summon stopped working

    you'd need to look at Android/ios/car software/phone app version to get some kind of correlation.

    Service request closed due to known issue being worked on - sit and wait for app update

    Summon stopped working

    Just about to raise a service request for this or is it better to wait if they're aware of it? I must have this working or a large part of the EAP is wasted for me

    Helping out our petrol friends

    Although you do have to specify to your insurance if you take passengers on a motorcycle, I know of no such requirements for motor insurance. don't ask for money for it and I don't think you've done anything wrong, unless you know different?

    Is the Model Y the new Reliant Robin?

    What makes you think such a thing in the first place? with the underfloor battery it is almost impossible to roll.

    Are other OEM's using Tesla Superchargers already in the UK?

    I think people miss the point about opening up superchargers, surely we can assume that the EU was going to force them to do so - after all that is the main thing holding back German car manufacturers compared to Tesla, they're hard to charge. This way Tesla opens them up but still keeps control...

    Does anyone wave anymore?

    After covering 100 miles on the C-Evolution Electric Motorcycle today (Stick that Guy Martin) My other half just informed me she'd been madly waving at every Tesla she saw, resulting in some confused waving back. So if you were waved at by a mad woman on the back of a bike today, that'll be her...

    Does anyone wave anymore?

    If you were the blue model s, who waved in Godstone today, I was the white model 3 you waved at. Sorry for waving back too late but it was the end of a long trip and I was too stunned that someone waved at me first!

    Turned mine off on holiday last year after over 200 - turns out Pandanoia is scared of the dark

    Whitley Bay Overnight Parking

    used JustPark in that area a couple weeks ago to park on someone's drive - even got access to a charger. Better than running the roulette that parking there seems to be.

    Remember when Musk promised swapping batteries instead of charging?

    As these guys already go equipped with vans battery or petrol powered cutting tools, lifting gear and weapons to threaten anyone that disturbs them I'm not sure a bit of weight is going to put them off. I'll leave this as it obviously isn't a problem over there, but it wouldn't end well for...

    Remember when Musk promised swapping batteries instead of charging?

    Don't know about you, but over here, theft of catalytic converters is epidemic levels. Partly cos its easy quick money with little to no risk. Personally I do NOT want my expensive battery pack to be easy to remove, I'm quite happy if it takes hours so long as I can charge at a decent rate. I...

    KICK mats?

    I've used these for the back seat - easy to put on, have stayed put and still gives you the seat pocket https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07YHKKQV1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    ICE to EV doubts

    If I'd had a Dyna or something I probably wouldn't either, but a solid mount Sportster stage 2 is a different thing. Livewire a bit out of my pocket and really needed better pass accommodation, CCS would have been nice though

    ICE to EV doubts

    Model 3 proved to me that EV's have become so good with one pedal driving, smoothness, quietness and just general lack of fuss day to day that I've put my Harley up for sale and bought a BMW C Evolution - basically a two wheeled i3. Zero fuss, zero drama and so easy to live with two ev's

    M3 towing advice

    Question comes up alot on forums, I'm led to believe the plated weight of the trailer is what matters rather than the actual weight. In your case as the trailer is plated for 1050 and the car is rated for 1000 you would be in trouble if anyone looked close enough at the plates

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

    They did extend for a few months in the beginning/middle of last year

    London TfL Congestion Charge / AutoPay

    my understanding is you register because it was a badly-ported disabled vehicle registration system rather than a built-for-purpose coded thing. This is upheld by the fact the ULEZ does use DVLA lookup as it's purpose built not adapted

    Change charge rate from app please!

    I Would like to be able to change the charge rate from the app. Live in an apartment with underground c/p so it takes a while to go and change the rate.

    MPP "Smash "Me" skid plate

    My solution (1st time) was to drive up on some caravan levelling ramps I had (using summon!!) then a trolley jack on either side - left ramps in place just in case. If people cleverer than me would like to look at the draper series of locking jacks, the one I used has a mechanical lock which...

    Tesla Offer frunk kit

    Frunk is easy to fit, helps if there's two of you. My wife and I fitted it in about 2hrs having never taken anything off the car before, just followed the youtube vid and pausing when needed. Only thing altered on the car is the struts. Find out by accident you can also close the frunk as normal...

I won't touch them again because of the after service. I won't mention the product but ended up having to...

    Does TACC avoid undertaking?

    It'll slow down unless/until you press the throttle to allow it to pass. I believe it will then continue to pass until you cancel autopilot.

    Favourite/handy voice commands that work [in the UK]

    I was talking to someone with Alexa about this yesterday, they said the same thing - they have to ask for "BBC Sounds, radio 2" as apparently everything is now grouped under BBC Sounds, not radio. Might be worth trying

    Anyone actually get Overtake Acceleration on TACC working?

    If you're in EU it's all working as the UNECE demand it works https://unece.org/transport/vehicle-regulations No automatic lane changes, car can suggest it but you have to confirm and it has 5 sec to complete. Suggest you check the forums relevant to your country as the USA isn't really going to...

    Abstract Ocean - Cease & Desist From Tesla - Litigation Sale

    Not that dramatic, road was long enough and I've been well trained on old cars/bikes/trikes so ignition off (carefully) and apply brakes until stop, get out and fix with pocket knife (frayed cable cut down), while trying to make sure no-one had seen me, until I could re-engineer the throttle...

    Recommended Jack and Puck

    standard trolley jack will not fit - tried 2 and 2.5T, the saddle on the 2t is really too small - 2.5 is really but did not damage the rubber puck, I'd have thought a 3T low profile would be a good bet unless anyone knows if the low profile saddles are bigger

    Abstract Ocean - Cease & Desist From Tesla - Litigation Sale

    Just to amuse you two - I had a Capri (Surrey, not Essex) that had an ex Corvette Stingray engine fitted complete with autobox - all slightly breathed on (OK, it was for drag racing). The throttle jammed open going to work one morning, in the middle of Croydon.
