    What do you miss about your previous car?

    Nothing I still have my previous car, Audi S5 stage 2 mapped now at 480 odd bhp. It's nice to be able to have the luxury of a weekend toy. Much more engaging to drive, but yes still not as quick as the M3P, but I'll take the S5 in corners any day....

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    Just to close this off, after much chasing by myself and the fleet company, I finally got the promised taxi refund just over a month later. I can now happily feed my family :D Car still going fine, although I'm due to go back to Manchester, and wondering if I should risk it in the M3...

    Motorways to trial 60mph limits to cut pollution

    No need for the trial. There are long stretches of the M1 and M6 with speed restrictions due to roadworks. They just need to go measure there.

    Oh don't get me wrong, glad it's back and went out in it tonight and it's great to be back in it. Long may it last:D

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    Well it's back, and it drives. That's a positive I suppose... Not washed, which just reinforces my view of Tesla, great tech, OK product, but terrible customer experience. Still waiting for the promised taxi refund, not going to hold my breath.

    So I'm on a promise for Monday, apparently will be brought to me on the back of a ice :rolleyes: Here's hoping

    Well finally got a call from the his morning from the Bham SC. The kind lady informed that they would arrange shipping of my car to me and I should get it in the next couple of days.... Here's hoping

    Sadly not heard from Tesla or managed to get through to them all week.

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    I'd be willing to bet that they are all the same... Funny enough they were quick to answer last week. I do think its new car deliveries that's behind the long call delay, but ultimately its just not good enough

    Well that's another 40mins of my life I'll never get back again, held on for two 20mins sessions today with no answer....

    Thanks Godsense, that is the number I have been calling, not tried today as been in meetings.

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    Well, I tried calling them this am... 20mins no answer, trying again for a second time and now up to 15mins no answer. Clearly they are all cashing in on their share split and rolling in on all the money they are making. Horrendous service, and I have no idea as to how I get my car back. In...

    Interesting. I saw they updated the software too 20.32.3 so there may be some credence to this theory

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    Well the saga continues... Tesla have no means of getting my car back to me :mad: and can't seem to offer any solutions to this problem apart from come get your car. It's not my fault this broke down 100's of miles away from me, why are they making this my problem. Its at times like these I...

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    To be fair I agree that they turned this around quickly. My frustration is with their communication especially with the no ETA statement.

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    Mine is a 3P and red... so no correlation :D Fair play to Tesla, it has been repaired and ready for collection... Err please bring it to me, I'm not coming to Birmingham :confused: Details of work undertaken

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    The no ETA thing is a pain in that I gave back the hire car optimistically thinking it would be a quick fix. Tesla have now said they don't have a loaned, and whilst it's not a biggie this week, next week I need to do some business miles, which I don't want to put on my Audi. I said lease, but...

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    So after myself and the lease company chasing Tesla have come back and confirmed that it's the rear drive motor. Replacement on order, no ETA.
  24. T

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    Nope, nothing from them at all. I honestly am not sure I would replace the M3P with another Tesla, hopefully in 2 years time there will be some descent competition to them. One thing I am sure about, and that is j would never spend £60k of my own money on a Tesla

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    To be honest I'm a bit pissed with them. From new I've had the 12v battery replaced twice, the rear lense had the water issue and now this. Feels like a Friday car. I gave the loaner back as I have another car to use, so I don't need a 3cyl POS on my drive. I'll chase them tmr as it's poor...

    Yup, as soon as I pulled over it disabled the front motor too.

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    Never too soon. Casually searching, indicates that this may be a known issue with the rear motor. Replacement motor and harness.... Let's see what they come back with

    Vehicle shutting down - PULL OVER SAFELY

    Well this happened to me on Sunday whilst driving my son the 200 odd miles to Manchester taking him back for the start of uni... Two messages popped up, firstly on saying rear motor disabled, then the above one telling me to pull over. Called Tesla support and after taking me through soft and...

    Is there any point in installing a home charger?

    Depends on daily mileage and use. The worst case scenario is you get home with 10% charge and you need to do a long journey next day. Can be mitigated with a super charger nearby... I lived on a UMC charger for 1month whilst I waited for my home charger. I was at South Mymms every evening...

    Any high mileage drivers?

    Before COVID I was doing 150miles a day, plus some over the weekend takes me to around 34k miles per annum :confused: Easy to do in the M3P, and if I drive normal'ish sitting around 75-80mph on the motorway it's doable on a full charge. Did this during the Jan Feb months. Anything on the fun...

    Condensation in rear lights

    Just had mine replaced, been a problem since new but COVID scuppered the previous appointment. Took all of 10mins. Water was pooling in it. They also replaced the 12V battery for the second time....

    Charging - anyone else having issues?

    Seems like I've hit this bug too. :mad: It's worked fine for months and now a software update screws this up. FFS

    ICE disappointment

    Probably going against the grain here, but I still love getting into my Audi S5. I have a M3P and as previously said it mind blowing fast, overtaking and traffic light racing is incredible, but for a premium car build quality, service are poor. Handling in twisty bits are not as good. Love the...

    Yeah, I meant I'll use Spotify till premium connectivity ends.

    Free premium Connectivity ending

    So from that link... As I have the 3 performance with premium interior I have the trial for a year? I'm not too bothered with the quality as my hearing is past its best (I can't hear upper frequencies anymore) so I'm OK with Spotify.... In reality I won't be paying the £10 a month when this...

    Charging speed help plz

    The Pod Point unit also has internal dip switches which sets the current limit. When mine was installed it was set to 6A or something like that. I got the installer to change these after I tested.

    My pod-point experience

    Well today was the install date and I can't fault the engineer at all. Had a text before 7am advising he would be here for 8am, and he arrived nice and early. Nice chap, good clean install and put the unit exactly where u wanted it, ran the cable neatly and got the job done. Took about 3hrs...

    Look at my new...

    I picked up during the week and there was only one other collection so I had lots of time with the agent and also to look at the car. Rookie mistake I made was to sign the ipad first, but fortunately I had / have no issues with the car

    Tips for a frequent long-distance driver

    I do 140miles a day which cost me about 200 miles of battery range. By the time I get home I have around 60miles left, and as I am yet to have my charge point installed and unfortunately I don't have a charger at the office, so I need to do this from a supercharger. Fortunately I have a...

    My pod-point experience

    Have to say my customer experience has been poor. Completed the paperwork only to be told the signatory for the OLEV grant was not good enough even though it was accepted for a colleague of mine. They then accepted this and on sending all the survey pics I was given a install date 3 + weeks...

    Free Superchargering

    Thanks, informative video. I do 150miles a day and I am still waiting for my home charger so have no option but to use superchargers. A full charge of 310 miles means I get home with around 60miles s left doing some spirited driving. The M3 has already warned me about overcharging..... So I am...

    2019/20 Orders and Deliveries [closed]

    Yup 3pin charging is a option but certainly won't give me enough for the ~150miles I do a day. There is a SC at South Mymms that is close to me, so I'll use that or alternate cars leaving the Tesla charging. Excited to be getting it, but West Dreyton is a 4rse to get to....

Ordered a M3P red with black interior as a company car via Inchcape on the 29 November and was given a anticipated delivery date of the 20 Jan. Not had any meaningful updates from anyone apart for a Tesla account creation and in...
