    New to Vancouver - please forgive the newbie question

    I'm in Vancouver (new job from UK originally) and always wondered on this, why can't I go to the US and drive a used car back. Do any Canadian cars go the other way for example back to the US? Seems a shame as I'm busting to get into another Tesla MS for my time here but the used Canadian...

    Base model 3, no extras, has anyone put a deposit down yet with news of upturn in delivery times

    I'm very tempted now to put down the $1000 and configure a completely base, no extras, Model 3 at $45,600, maybe minus the BC $5,000 EV rebates. I owned a S75 before but sold this a while ago for this new job in BC but wondered if anyone is in the same boat as me as wanting just the very base...

    Audio upgrade from stock base version in Model S

    Looking at upgrading the audio (I'm a bit of a 24bit fan, NAIM at home etc) and not finding much for the UK. LH, Light Harmonics seem to have gone quiet recently and most seem to have gone custom either on their own or with their local installer in the US. Has anyone had any upgrades done in...

    Used Tesla UK pricing?

    I have been looking for a used Tesla, and the recent drop to the UK site of a few used and up and coming inventory has got me thinking that for the UK market the used prices feel a little inflated. I don't see many used shifting that quickly, if at all in the main, and although the US prices...

    Model S75D - New owners

    I haven't seen much here or online of S75D purchases, general battery and ownership experience stories. Most appear to have gone 60 or 70 but little 75D related comments. Has anyone got/getting a 75D to relate stories to, thinking of ordering one soon.

    Model X man maths v Tesla

    Running the numbers it is certainly that all the man maths hasn't helped, can't see there is much in it overall, if going non-ICE then it is just the petrol/diesel savings per mile = to the cost of your electricity per KwH at home/work, those being the two main points of charging the battery for...

    UK Tesla overall so far

    Hi, Hate to say this but feel we have been getting the same old 2nd class treatment again even though you could argue with Lotus it may have all began here? Tesla PR has used the UK pretty well but I can't see any benefits pricing wise? Model X will be 2017 for UK and amazingly priced. Model 3...
