    Model 3 Leasing UK

    You'll have to pay a £50 admin fee to tusker's to put it on (its actually 25 admin to put it on and 25 to take it off again, you just pay it together initially). Also you'll have to pay £80 (the dvla fee) at the end to get it off again. As mentioned already simply keep the original plates to put...

    Actually there is some protective stuff - they have something on the trim, there were the photos of tesla's on car transporters and people thought they were older stock as it looked like they had chrome trim but it was actually the white protective film over the trim.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    I suspect new as in their company will be offering a salary sacrifice scheme from that date. A random person can't just decide to get a car through salary sacrifice it needs to be agreed with their employer as the car is (for legal purposes) actually a company car.

    2022 Shipping Movements

    I'd be amazed if they _did_. There is a reason that you can just give your RN to the lease company and they take over the order - an order at the list price, and that is they pay exactly the same as you. You can't do this with any other car company because the lease companies _do_ get discounts...

    The first MY deliveries were 14th February in the UK. The big 'launch' delivery was on the 19th in Southampton.

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    Basically had a couple of updates from Tuskers, couple of texts from Tesla right around the point of delivery. Only had minor issue but that was due to my company's rules on when people can make changes to their salary (basically only up to a certain day in the month to allow time for the change...

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    1) I simply ordered as if paying in full on delivery - lease options weren't available on Model Y when I placed my order. 2) The deposit was refunded when the lease company took over the order (few weeks after I placed it iirc as it took a bit of time for everything to go through between lease...

    2022 Shipping Movements

    My guess - there may be a few built already but they would be at the factory rather than at the port. Majority of those at the factory would no doubt have been pushed out on the local market to try to book sales for the end of quarter the same way those in stock here were. As a result it will be...

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    My first lease car as well. No issues with Tuskers but minor one with DVLA - I wanted to put my private plate on it, contacted Tuskers, they processed it and sent me the eV948 so I could get the plates made and put on the car (you have a 3 day window to do this) but Halfords said they could only...

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    I've got my MY (same as above except Black) from Tuskers as well, slightly more due to black and I suspect insurance. Does include insurance and maintenance but went for my own home charger (had a zappi installed). Got mine a couple of weeks ago, one of the shortest distances the delivery...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Yup but they are circular - a 1 inch increase on the alloy means 1/2 inch decrease in tyre depth on both sides of the circle if the exterior diameter is to remain unchanged.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    Reason for my question is the fact I'm so close to where they start from - as I said less than 5 miles so I expect I'll end up getting the tracking text after they've delivered.
  15. K

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    Think about it - if they have 50 vehicles being collected in a day: 50 * 3 = 150 hours Over 6 days so that means they need to use multiple chargers Oh and they can't be swapping over which vehicle is charging when they aren't there which basically means you can change which vehicle is charging...

    Hmm just received a text saying my MY is due to be delivered on friday and I'll get an sms with the tracking link once my car has been collected by the carrier - how long after is this sent?

    Hmm I'm wondering which ship my MY is on - I was thinking it was on the Glovis Symphony as I had a delivery date of the 21st and was told it wouldn't be possible to get it sooner/pick it up as it only arrives on the 18th however I just had a text saying it will be delivered on the 18th - Is the...

    Yup - I'd read that as an Initial Payment that is equivalent to 6 regular payments followed by 47 regular monthly payments.

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

    One thing to be aware of - if you take a car in for an MOT more than a month early and the garage doesn't realise your next MOT will be due 1 year after the early one - I know contract hire companies have had drivers take their cars in for an MOT a year early and that means the car ends up...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Well let me let you in on more information I have - I actually work (and have done for 20 years) writing software for the fleet industry so have a very good idea how their back ends work for ordering vehicles. You are actually confusing things here - there are funders (and these are often big...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Given Tesla wouldn't give any sort of discount to Hertz when they ordered 100,000 vehicles they will be giving exactly zero discount and have exactly zero financial penalty for the block orders to lease companies - the fact that Tesla give no discounts is precisely the reason you can simply...

    Model Y standard range for UK - will it happen

    Yup but the Model 3 SR is also successful in the US and they actually removed the Model Y SR as an option there so I'm not sure how valid that logic is.

    Model Y standard range for UK - will it happen

    I think you are confused - Europe only has Long Range and Performance, US only has Long Range and Performance - the only place that has a Standard Range Model Y is China. They haven't brought out a Standard Range in France, Germany or Norway (checked on the tesla website to see what was...

    Model Y standard range for UK - will it happen

    Why do you think they will have a MY SR in the UK. At the moment (afaik) the only place you can get one is china. In the US I think they originally had a MY SR as an option but have never actually shipped one and have now cancelled orders so why do you think they will have an MY SR - especially...

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    It will be part of the duty of care on the part of your employer (that they may have farmed off to the contract hire company) - check you have a valid licence, no points they don't know about etc. Source - I've written software for contract hire companies to track the state of driver's licences...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I think we are clear its double laminated on the Y - all the people saying they haven't got it are people getting model 3s - they weren't meant to haver a laminated rear afaik.

    Model X UK delivery latest

    Consider this - the X is produced in one factory, the Y is produced (currently) in 2 factories and will soon be in production in 4 factories. Ramping up an X line in another factory would bite into the Y (or 3 or whatever) production in that factory. It would be a different case if Giga Shanghai...

    2022 Shipping Movements

    Actually I'd say this is the only way ti can work given the cars are coming in en-masse by ship - compare it to cars produced in a uk factory where the simply way to do it would be daily car transporters from the factory at which point you have a very steady flow of deliveries. As you basically...

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    Thing is with every other car you never know if you have gotten a good deal or not or if your mate next door who has the same car paid far less because his lease company had a volume deal with the manufacturer. With tesla the price is the price which is why you can do things like order the car...

    New Highway Code Rules

    My personal preference is actually riding nowhere near the road if possible - until we moved office my cycling route to work crossed a few busy roads but had very little riding along roads. It was all cycle paths, some through a park and some on a wide shared pavement, a decent distance from the...

    New Highway Code Rules

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    20 mph zones in side streets

    This is nothing unique to tesla's - I have a honda civic that has traffic sign recognition - I turn right at a roundabout on my journey home, 40 mph limit to the roundabout, 40 mph limit on the road I'm turning onto (but no sign on entering the road _because the speed limit hasn't changed_...

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    The answer is it depends. Historically in the UK there used to be a single change on the plate letter (not number) every year on 1st of August which led to August being the busiest month for car sales and used car values to be based on the plate rather than anything else. The UK then switched...

    Uk Model Y Production

    It doesn't take that long to get from Southampton to pickup - what I expect he meant was its will leave the factory at the end of January, given chinese new year and the 30+ day transit time that would then fit with them being delivered at the beginning of March.

    Uk Model Y Production

    I don't think any of the initial Model Y LRs in the UK will be coming from Berlin - its still tied up in red tape. I was told when I ordered my YLR that it would be coming from Shanghai and would be arriving march/april time.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Don't forget Elon's recent email to staff which is meant to get them away from massive rush at the end of quarter so its possible they will have them arriving at the tail end of January.
