    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    For me this was one of the biggest plus point of a tesla, I dont use SC all the time, but i have never had an issue, they always work and I dont think i have ever had to wait. If they become more open, my fear is that they will be taken up by plug in hybrids or slow charging cars. My lease for...

    Wiki Your first UK Tesla MOT? Checklist before the visit.

    Any updates on this topic, i am due my MOT November this year and really want to avoid any pitfalls. Ideally somewhere that understands the Model 3, so i dont have to jump through a load of hoops

    Cold weather warning

    Just wanted to share a lesson I learned today. Defrost your car before you open the doors. My rear window didn't go down at all (which I understand), but when I went to shut the door the glass didnt go under the trip and scratched the chrome trim above the door in 2 places. Lesson always...

    M3 recalls?

    So they are ahead of the problem then :)

    M3 recalls?

    Ranger or service centre? I really don't want to go to the service centre again. They had my car on the day this recall came out!

    Good point :)

    V11 - what’s your verdict?

    I think the blind spot camera is damn right dangerous. If i am indicating right, i should be looking right to check, not looking left around my hand. I understand what they are trying to do, but right now it looks like a poorly executed solution to a problem that i think makes the situation...

    V11 - what’s your verdict?

    Exactly the same. I used it every time i drove. I can live without it being a Card. I just want to see my current average miles per KWh for my trip. I cant now regulate how i am driving on long trips. Putting it behind 2 or 3 button presses for it to take up the whole screen is a real retro...

    cracked rear window - auto glass or Tesla to mend it?

    I cracked mine. I got tesla to replace it. It cost around £600 to £800 from memory. Didnt want it on my insurance.

    Creep mode, Am I the wrong one?

    The Kia Salesman told me that Auto Hill hold is the same thing. At that point, i knew he had no idea what i was talking about. I was quite tempted to say "let me show you how this should work" and hop into my car.

    Creep mode, Am I the wrong one?

    Thanks, but given the I3 is basically a Mini now. There is hope. Edit: Just noticed they dont do a Longer range Mini... Shame

    Creep mode, Am I the wrong one?

    When the salesman told me that I just said "your joking right".

    Creep mode, Am I the wrong one?

    I really like 1 pedal driving. The fact the car only moves when I put my foot on the throttle is something i have really become used too. Both my Model 3 and my wifes leaf drive work like that, so we have both got very used to it. Here is the problem, Every other EV i have driven (ID3 and Niro)...

    Thanks guys, I think my last 3 cars all did this by themselves, so i never had to think about it. Good to know that its easy to resolve.

    Headlights (getting flashed)

    Ok, for the past year or so, i have had to do very little driving at night. But before covid, I drove early and late quite a lot. Never had any issues with headlights and never got flashed. Now, I am getting flashed by also every car, I figured out it was my headlights had become completely...

    I cant find anywhere a documented requirement for servicing. (I know the US mentions that you need to rotate your tyres, which i dont think is a thing i the uk)

    Home Charge Points Discussion and Suggestions [megathread]

    Out of interest on a linked topic. I have an EV box charger, which for some reason only charges at 3KWh (tested on 2 cars) and also ignore the charge profiles i have set for it to charge at its own time. I keep having to go to there support (who blame the software). Where do i stand on getting...

    Android Auto, That is pretty much the only thing i miss from my last car.

    Questionable Bodyshop treatment of battery!!??

    I might also be worth raising this with your insurer as well. In effect, they are potentially damaging your car. I know with Companies like Honda, they will deal with your insurer and make sure they use Office repairers. Dont know about Tesla Finally, The App thing sounds dodgy. If they were a...

    Trip to the Service centre in lockdown

    Anybody got an experience of going to the service centre during lockdown? Specifically the MK Centre? I ideally would like to sit down a work from there, but i am not sure that is going to be possible in the current situation.

    Worrying Moment, Loss of Regen, Autopilot, Stability and auto braking.

    Had a very worrying moment today. I was about 5 mins into my journey today when suddenly i got an alert beep. I then started getting messages saying, Auto braking, Stability Control, Regen, Autopilot were all disabled. So i did a soft reset, Nothing changed. Found somewhere safe to stop, Did a...

    Headlights on during day

    Just bring this topic back up. The weather is really sunny, and not a cloud in the sky. But on automatic, my headlights are still on. I cant see any reason why? (i will add my wifes Leaf seems to be doing this as well). Both cars are on the drive. I see zero reason why they should be one. Its...

    Adding a Spoiler to a Lease

    Can you remove it without Damage? If so, try you luck. If not, dont. Personally, I would not run the risk. They are looking for any reason to charge you. The only Mod i have done to mine is the wrap the console.

    Condensation in rear lights

    May well be. I was not challenged at all, they just replaced it. I have now asked for the other one to be done to as its bad. When i was at the service centre January time, i was given the "this is expected" line and was told what to look for it to need to be replaced.
  37. Palros

    Condensation in rear lights

    Rear light replaced in less than 10 mins. Apparently the old ones has a faulty seal. No issues what so ever. Lesson learned, should have asked for both to be replaced, my left rear is nowhere near as bad, but in hindsight i should have asked for both to be replaced.

    Condensation in rear lights

    I decided i had had enough of the level of condensation in my rear lights. I have a Ranger coming this week. I will report back on the outcome
  39. Palros


    I do have that on. So I was surprised that the window was open. All the other windows were closed. I didn't realise about the Cabin overtemp thing. So i will know better for next time.

    With the recent heat I have taken to venting the car from my test app for a few hours in the day. My office is at the front of the house so I can see the car when I do it. This morning I discovered that when I last pressed to close the window, the car had shut all but the drivers window (which...

    Looking at the Raw data (Didnt know i could do that). It was trying to go to sleep, which it was clearly not going to do while the car was driving. I did raise a support ticket with Teslafi.

    Anybody else recently had an issue where teslafi has stopped recording journeys? I did 2 trips yesterday both over an hour (around 70miles) neather have showed up on teslafi. It recorded my trips last week without issue and I have changed nothing. It sometimes misses short trips, but if it...

    My Leasplan M3 Has Disappeared from my Tesla Account

    I am with Lease Plan as well. My Car has gone from the Tesla website, My App still work, My super charger history is still there. I also got the email about payment details (which i updated). Surely changes like this should involve some kind of notification to the customers, so we dont all end...

    A nice surprise (free Ionity leccy)

    Its good to see the right charges are now being installed at the right places. Having a 2 7kw Chargers are a Mcdonalds is almost pointless as you are likely to only be there for 20mins (I have seen this).

    Opinions wanted for my second car

    I bought a Leaf for my wife. I prefer my Tesla, but its a nice car. Does what i need it to (round trips upto 100 miles no issue, local travel to work etc and taking the kids out). The App control stuff is really poor compared to the tesla. Also i have found it been easy to just have one charger.

    Tesla 3 close window button location

    Unless they have improved significantly, The voice commands have been next to useless every time i have tried to use them. They don't understand basic commands. (For Clarity, I have not tested them since about Feb, as i just could not be bothered as they where slow, wrong and frustrating. So...

    Premium connectivity ended as a leasing customer

    Hot car!

    Mines been awake most of today. I keep getting notification from teslfi saying it could not sleep. Had not realised that it was to do with Temp until today. Anybody tried sun shades? Tesla own brand or others? I would rather it didn't chew though 6 miles a day just sitting there.
