    Model 3 Wading Ability

    Just to add, before I bought my M3P I had a 4.0l BMW X6... supposedly a SUV capable of flying around a track and climbing a muddy mountain in equal measure... ... Having had to hand the car back for 2 months and have £20k of engine rebuild (luckily under warranty!) due to water ingress into...

    Tesla Wall Connector - keeps fusing?

    Hi all, sorry for delay in response on this!... but the story thickens! It's an RCB with a test button, 32A. It was checked by the installer and no problems identified. Highlighted the smart meter may be giving off signals which interfere with the RCB causing it to trip... this does make some...

    Self-driving cars (level 3) to be allowed on UK roads

    Self-driving cars (level 3) to be allowed on UK roads

    I am assuming, based on definitions of level 3 autonomous driving, that this would mean no more need to wiggle the steering wheel every 30 seconds? Sounds like automated lane changing etc is still out of scope though... sounds to me like the proposed Gov recommendation is moving us only to level...

    Tesla Test Drives in the UK . .

    If it was said with genuine courtesy and a desire to educate I'd agree, but this was certainly said with a whiff of "Oh look, this poor idiot doesn't know how to close a frunk, who let this guy in?". I think it was said slightly in jest ie. Yea we all know Tesla are a bit special (just like...

    Tesla Test Drives in the UK . .

    Hi all - Yes, was a 1-way and return trip with Home > Work > Home set-up, but the show room guys were typically laid back and said "take it wherever you'd like, see you in an hour". Their relaxed attitude (assumed because of tracking in car etc!) made it a very enjoyable (and different)...

    Tesla Test Drives in the UK . .

    Sure - "Work" was set to one of the junctions on the Motorway, "Home" was set back to the showroom. Sorry, above a little misleading.

    Tesla Test Drives in the UK . .

    Exactly! Me and the Misus took a MSP out without a salesman... they were all young (and trendy) and just handed the "key" over and said "Go for it, motorway is about 10 mins away, we've set the nav on a round trip up/down motorway but see you in about an hour".... When I returned (with a massive...

    Tesla Test Drives in the UK . .

    I'd certainly recommend a test drive, even if just for the experience of driving a Tesla! I had one back in Summer '20 in Solihull (in a Model S Performance as they had no available Model 3's at the time...), so there's certainly more than just the four you mention. It's absolutely worth it...

    Features we would like to see

    Tesla Wall Connector - keeps fusing?

    Hi all, A few times now I've come to charge my car at home, and the TWC (Gen 2) is off, with the fuse breaker down. Flicking the fuse box back up turns the TWC back on, and the charger is fine. A few charges go by, nothing changes. Then seemingly randomly the same happens again. Happening...

    Features we would like to see

    Sounds played through speakers for accleration / breaking - options Retrofit horn noise - even if just inside the cabin for non-speaker UK models
  14. JAR897

    Features we would like to see

    'Shortcuts' on the main screen menu bar - one or two free spaces where you can assign regular tasks or actions - for example, open the glove box, cycle between chill/normal/sport acceleration modes, open all windows, etc. I'd also like to see improvements to the 'energy' tool - although not...

    Another Range query....

    Do replacing the default puddle/footwell lights create any noticeable difference in range? How about USB plugged in devices? Noticeable or not really?

    Trickle charge at caravan site?

    Thanks all - so to confirm, the 16A commando supply might be all right (with prior permission/review from owner) but plugging into a “normal” 3-pin socket from within a static caravan is probably a bad idea?
  17. JAR897

    Trickle charge at caravan site?

    Anyone think there’s any risk using the trickle charger at a caravan site? I know some of these sites can have dodgy electrics, etc (or am I making sweeping assumptions?)

    West Bridgford, Nottingham Planning Application

    She’s open for business! No pics but there were a number of customers inside today, plus a cleaner at 7am this morning! Still 4x empty blocks where I suspect more superchargers will go eventually, but a fair few M3/S/X behind the gates.

    ICE-ing strategies & solutions

    That seems like a smart move - Trying to 'do them a favour' as you say, to avoid the direct confrontation but getting the result (hopefully) at the same time. I think a big assumption here is that you're able to speak to the person whose car is ICE'ing... Has anyone had experience speaking to a...

    ICE-ing strategies & solutions

    Like the logic on "EV Charging" terminology... I must admit, I've been guilty once or twice (in quiet car parks) to take advantage of an EV space without plugging in... but can imagine my own frustration if I needed to charge and saw myself in that situation... Especially as EV's increase in...

    ICE-ing strategies & solutions

    For me personally, I think fines for any vehicle not actively 'plugged in' would be the best route forwards... policed in the same way maximum-stay spaces are policed today (via traffic wardens). This would mean if a car isn't plugged in, they're fined. If they're plugged in not charging...

    ICE-ing strategies & solutions

    Hi guys, It's (thankfully) not happened to me, but I'm really keen to get opinions as well as proven solutions on how to deal with ICE-ing, both at dedicated charging locations (such as Tesla Superchargers, Public charge points, etc) as well as destination chargers (Supermarket car parks...

    Enhanced Summon & Autonomous driving UK laws

    Where's the best place (other than these forums, of course!) to keep up-to-date about UK law changes etc related to self-driving, and the hopeful improvement of Summon/AP in the UK? eg. When could we reasonably expect summon to work >1m away from car, etc etc?

    No photos to update, but whilst running past today the interior of the SC looks like it's coming along nicely. Furniture all in now, in typical white and red, plus seating, coffee area, and doors on the W/C rooms! Plenty of wood/metal/scraps outside still, plus a huge skip, but looks like...

    Daily update; some more Teslas landed on tarmac. Plates range from ‘17 to ‘70 so unsure if show stock or employees cars etc. some furniture arriving inside too and signage continues to go up.

    Question is... do we think the superchargers are live and available to charge?

    West Bridgford, Nottingham Planning Application

    An exciting milestone reached today. After tarmac laid last week, the first four superchargers were installed today. Looks like they may be v3 as only have a single charge port? I took the Liberty of picking one up - probably the first in the country to do so I reckon!

    Car washing options?

    Thanks - my query is more so “is there any risk to the electrics / water ingress etc?”. I appreciate there’s more care when washing by your own hand, but realistically is there a significantly increased risk by taking it to the car park guys?
  39. JAR897

    Car washing options?

    Is it safe to wash your M3 via a human car wash and/or machine car wash? Or should owners only clean themselves?
  40. JAR897

    West Bridgford, Nottingham Planning Application

    I should add, there are workers on site most mornings (0730) and still there at night (1800) so appears work is ongoing, albeit slower than I’d like personally!
  41. JAR897

    West Bridgford, Nottingham Planning Application

    Quick update - looks like the last few days they’ve been working on installing the power to the superchargers, although no visible signs of anything “Tesla” just yet. Inside looks like still quite a bit of work to be done - Ford decals still on windows, although there are portable lights on...

    Reduction of miles (pch/pcp)

    Good morning all, I’m wondering if anybody has tried to reduce the mileage of their PCP or PCH Agreements with Tesla given the reduced commuting / travel / etc from COVID. And importantly I am wondering if anyone has had any success with this? I know insurance company such as direct line are...

    Summon distance hack?

    Hi guys, summon feature in uk is pathetically close to the car, like within touching distance! many one know any workarounds to extend the distance? I’ve seen a few YouTube videos with workarounds using a second phone, but I can’t get them to work so suspect may be fakes? many advice? I just...

    Am I missing something here? What’s the issue with getting a flat tyre? Why’s it such a concern? Can you not just get AA out with replacement tyre?

    Car alarm - Continuous trigger at night (Solved!)

    Ah, maybe not the suspected battery drain then! Maybe the software reboot/update was the more likely culprit. I also had the car facing the opposite way last night, I'm going to face it in the original direction tonight and see if it replicates. Hopfully not though! Telsa have also been in...
