    Tesla buying money guilt :-(

    Ok. This is off topic so sorry for detailing the thread. Consider a remote source of energy. Could be coal, gas or oil, or a renewable like solar, wind, hydro or thermal. The location or type of energy makes it financially or logistically unviable to either store or transport the energy...

    Tesla buying money guilt :-(

    You can do whatever you want. Maybe learn some more about Bitcoin mining and energy use. Don't rely on the MSM for any insight regarding crypto.

    Tesla buying money guilt :-(

    Still money to be made in crypto. DEFI is where crypto was maybe 5 years ago. Also look into DAOs. Plenty of info out there when you are ready to jump in.

    Tesla buying money guilt :-(

    At your age and income level and with your amount of investments you should seriously consider putting at least 5 to 10% of your investments into the crypto/DEFI space. NFA. DYOR. Asymmetric risk. Doubt those investments will go to zero, but the upside could be life-changing.

    Lease it or HP. Invest whatever is left.

    Switch to a Porsche Taycan or Audi E-Tron GT?

    Just had a read through of that thread. Seemed pretty even-handed and fair to me.

    Premium connectivity Spotify

    The latest update allows use of hotspot wifi from your phone while driving. Which means you can use Spotify without a subscription. Make sure your phone is set up as a hotspot. Put the car into neutral. Click the network icon on the screen. Wifi will be off so turn it on. Your phone's wifi...

    Premium connectivity Spotify

    When connected to Wi-Fi either at home/work or via mobile you can use Spotify without a premium subscription. I start up a Spotify playlist before leaving home and it will keep playing after engaging drive and losing the Wi-Fi. Most playlists last a fair while, even when skipping tracks I don't...

    Have you ever kerbed your Aero wheels?

    Take the wheel covers off, you pussy!

    Have you ever kerbed your Aero wheels?

    Kerbed one of my wheels a couple of weeks ago. About 3 inches of damage along the rim. Just removed the aero wheel trim and sanded the damage with different grades of wet and dry. Surprising easy to sand away the damage. Once I was happy I applied a few coats of this touch up paint: Tesla Sonic...

    Suggestions for repairing B-pillar glass scratches?

    Is the panel next to the wing mirror plastic, not glass? That might be why it scratches.

    Octopus Smart Meter Experiences

    You are lucky. My meter install was due today between 12 and 4. Received a call at 12 letting me know the appointment had been cancelled due to COVID infected installer. Rebooked for next available install on the 25th February.

    Wipers - a suggestion

    This is the simplest option. No change to the existing functionality: quick press for wipe, press and hold for washer. Just add the additional option to double-tap for constant wipe with additional tap to cycle. Brilliant.

    Keyless Theft

    The position of the PIN keypad changes on my screen. It is not always in the same place. I wonder if this is to prevent repeated fingerprints in the same spots?

    Different TAPTES Wireless Chargers

    Here's the reply I received from TAPTES (models in brackets are my additions): "The first one (GEN 3) supports fast charging. As it is 15W, it is ideal foe big -sized phones.

    Anyone own or know the difference between these two TAPTES wireless chargers, other than the more expensive one adding type-c wired charging (which I don't need): TAPTES Tesla Model 3 Wireless Phone Charger, 15W Fast Charging TAPTES Wireless Charging Pad for Tesla Model 3 Gen 2 Is one better...

    Delivery Rejection - At least 18 issues found

    I just checked my car. Same colour as yours. I have issues 10 to 13 and 17. I think these are common. Issue 16 - that part of the seal isn’t fixed and moves slightly on both sides.

    Good luck. Don't blame you for rejecting even though most of those issues could have been corrected at a later date. Good job you were able to see the car outdoors in bright sunlight. When I collected mine from Solihull I had to check it over in a dark car park, reversed into a spot between two...

    All Performance Model 3 Currently Being Held on 2020.8.3?

    This makes sense to me. I am on 2020.8.3 and received an update alert to 2020.12.5 via my iPhone on the 15th April. When I checked again later the same day the update had disappeared. Been stuck on 2020.8.3 ever since with no further updates.

    2020.12.5 Rolling

    Am I alone in not receiving the update to 2020.12.5? I am still on 2020.8.3. Received an alert via the iPhone app on 15th April for the update to 2020.12.5, but it disappeared later that day.

    Me neither. It showed up on my phone app a couple of weeks ago and then disappeared. Nothing since.
