    Rejecting my 2020 Tesla M3P after 4 months of ownership. Sad day

    I didn't even take them on the offer as they were only essentially making a £5k contribution to the brand new replacement car. I figured if I traded the car in for Model Y I would lose far less money. In the end I had to go to the financial ombudsman and I Tesla agreed to pay me £3k compensation...

    using M3P whilst MY in for repairs

    Slightly less efficient yes but balanced against a larger interior space, much larger carrying capacity in the boot with hatch and a more pleasing elevated driving position especially for motorway driving. For me these pro's on the Y are worth the 20 mile reduction in range. Oh and i am loving...

    using M3P whilst MY in for repairs

    Waste of money. Adds maybe 2-3 metres in a traffic light grand prix but in the real world even less. Check out the car wow drag races between the M3P and M3 LR from standing starts and rolling

    using M3P whilst MY in for repairs

    Had both and for my type of driving i.e. slow moving traffic the chinese Y is much better at this

    Do I buy a second hand model S or new model 3 ?

    Driven both extensively. Model 3 is miles better in every single way

    New Tesla Model Y stuck on 6AMPS when charging on 7KW charger

    Hypervolt did change the cable to modified version a few months back as i was having latching issues with my M3P. I wonder if i am not getting a good connection with this modified cable on the Model Y. I have tried a full reboot but that didnt solve the issue

    New Tesla Model Y stuck on 6AMPS when charging on 7KW charger

    Good question. I am able to get 10AMPS using the Tesla 3 pin wall charger. I think this suggests the issue is with the Hypervolt charger?

    New Tesla Model Y stuck on 6AMPS when charging on 7KW charger

    Hi guys just picked up my new Tesla Model Y on Saturday and on the first attempt at charging the car i had no issues with my Hypervolt 7KW charger however on my second attempt of charging the car (last night) i only got 6AMPS when it should normally be 32AMPS. I nearly didnt make it to work...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    WOW i did not expect this. The comments on the video are suggesting the result could have been down to a battery temperature issue that might be able to be fixed with an update by Tesla. However i think it suggests that the LR M3 or MY with or without the AB is probably the sweet spot. I think...

    HyperVolt Charge Points [megathread]

    Had similar unimpressed thoughts initially but they will eventually sort things out and the charger will become reliable after this teething stage hopefully just like mine

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Is anyone familiar with how long it usually takes Tesla to provide a settlement letter for trade ins?. I emailed their financial services 48 hours ago and chased this up but so far no response and i am scheduled to pick up my new Model Y on Saturday!

    Anyone regretted getting a Performance M3?

    My thoughts exactly. Ive had the P for 15 months and the power has been amazing but it is overkill for UK roads and i no longer use anywhere near its potential 99% of the time

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    Thanks!. 20's, black paint and black interior. The car is already at my local dealer in Newcastle so i think this is sheer luck with all the stars aligning
  14. M3PBOSS

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    I think this is true. Tesla Model Y ordered 18th March. Matched to a vehicle on 19th/20th March. Submitted trade in estimate for current M3P on 20th March and final offer sent to me today. Collection of my Model Y confirmed on 26th March. Surely this is a record from ordering a new non inventory...

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    Been offered £52500 trade in by Tesla for my M3P 10,600 miles registered Dec 2020. I paid £57500. £5K depreciation in 15 months. Not too bad IMO

    Uk price increase.. again

    Press 1 to ask for a call back!

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    Tesla wont be delivering any Model Y's in April according what i have been told. With demand extremely high i think you would have to be very lucky to pick an inventory Model Y within 60 days
  18. M3PBOSS

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    Mine took less than 24 hours as i chased them by calling them multiple times. In fairness they advised me to do this as my EDD of my Model Y is this week - i ordered it 3 days ago!. Incredibly lucky to get matched almost instantly

    Accept current 2020 M3P trade in value or wait

    Good point!. I think i will likely just take the current trade in value now and hope my model Y arrives within 60 days. Delivery estimate is currently showing as May

    Accept current 2020 M3P trade in value or wait

    Hi guys i have just ordered a Model Y LR which should land in May. My current trade in value on my 2020 M3P with 10,000 miles is £52600. It was a sky high £55000 3 weeks ago!. I do know that if you apply the trade in to your new order then the quote is valid for 60 days. Would people advise me...

    Uk price increase.. again

    Out of curiosity do Tesla honour the prices paid at the point of order?. I'm thinking about ordering a Model Y Performance now before the inevitable price rise!

    HyperVolt Charge Points [megathread]

    Hi guys for the last 2 nights my Hypervolt has failed to charge my Model 3 on scheduled charge. Everything looks to be working fine from the charger perspective. I wonder if it’s a software bug on the car from the last update which I installed last week

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I ordered a black base spec MY on 7th Feb. Expected delivery is saying march. Do you think this is realistic?

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I have ordered a Model Y in black with standard spec and no options on 7th Feb. Expected delivery is March. Can you guys confirm if this delivery date will likely be accurate?

    HyperVolt Charge Points [megathread]

    So then is it likely an RCD issue that would need to be replaced?
  28. M3PBOSS

    HyperVolt Charge Points [megathread]

    Yes i was advised to this by hypervolt to see if it is the RCD or the charger causing the issue
  29. M3PBOSS

    HyperVolt Charge Points [megathread]

    My hypervolt charger keeps tripping at the RCD during scheduled charging - it can occur only after 30 minutes of charging so its not overheating. It has happened once per week since it was installed 3 weeks ago. Has anyone had this issue?

    Ultrablack FTW but had to wait 3 weeks to get it. Much smarter looking than the white IMO

    Switch to a Porsche Taycan or Audi E-Tron GT?

    So it appears the Audi E-Tron GT appears to be the better choice over the Taycan for now anyway. I now need to figure out if the build quality and driving pleasure of the Audi outweighs all of the technology and convenience of owning a Tesla!. I don't think this will be an easy decision to make!

    Switch to a Porsche Taycan or Audi E-Tron GT?

    As many of you will know i have been locked into a battle with Tesla trying to reject my 2020 M3P since April 2021. They have basically messed me around for the last 6 months agreeing to accept rejection of vehicle due to it being of unsatisfactory quality (see my previous thread for more...

    Anyone selling their M3 to cash in on no depreciation??!!

    The point is that the only option if i were to sell my 2020 M3P is just to buy another brand new M3P but it costs £4k more than what i paid for mine and it'll take 4 months to deliver so overall not really worth it
  34. M3PBOSS

    Anyone selling their M3 to cash in on no depreciation??!!

    Good question. I have a 2020 M3P which i bought for £57.5k but there is nothing else on the market that im interested in and the car is worth £61.5k now which negates the nil depreciation. In 6-12 months used car prices will likely begin to normalise. If i was in the OP position i would probably...

    I had mine installed on monday but it seems like im having scheduled charging issues which seemed associated when increase the AMPS from 31 to 32 on the Tesla app. The first time i increased the AMPS the charger tripped after 3 hours on scheduled charge and then i the following 3 days i had no...

    Taking an M3 to the garage to swap tyres - what to tell them?

    Would you be so kind to upload the print out you gave the garage of the jacking points and wheel nut torques as my car going in on saturday to ATS euromaster to have all tyres changed and this would be very helpful

    Tyre choice for model 3P on 20” Uber turbines

    In conditions <7 degrees with no snow the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S perform more than adequately and would out perform winter tyres in temps >7 degrees

    Tyre choice for model 3P on 20” Uber turbines

    Do you really need winter tyres living in essex?. I plan to go for 255/35/20 with michelin pilot sport 4s. Not sure its worth getting winter tyres when you have AWD for the 3-3=4 days of heavy snow we get per year

    Hi guys i will be getting rid of my Pirelli Pzero stock tyres 235 35 20 and plan to move to the Michelin pilot sport 4s as we approach winter. My car is the M3P 2020 running the 20" Uberturbines. Would you advise on going 245 or 255 tyre? Thanks

    Yet another problem. Steering alignment issue

    So my M3P is yet again going back to the service centre as i have been getting a message stating the steering alignment is required and traction control, auto pilot, regenerative braking have been disabled. I have not had any accidents or hit any kerbs or large pot holes. Has anyone else had...

    Rejecting my 2020 Tesla M3P after 4 months of ownership. Sad day

    Thanks for that. I referred the case to the ombudsman and that prompted some big wigs in the Tesla financial Services department who are based in Germany to find a solution before the ombudsman got involved. I got absolutely nowhere with Tesla Customer services UK who were diabolical and in the...

    Rejecting my 2020 Tesla M3P after 4 months of ownership. Sad day

    Latest update: Tesla have informed me that they will be replacing my M3P with a brand new M3P at no extra cost to me. After 5 months of battling and stress i have finally arrived at the outcome i wanted in the first place. The moral of this story is know your rights and don't be afraid to...

    Rejecting my 2020 Tesla M3P after 4 months of ownership. Sad day

    Latest update: After getting absolutely no where with Tesla customer support who suggested that i rebook with the service centre for 8th time to resolve the outstanding problems with the car, Tesla financial services became involved after i referred the case to the financial ombudsman service...

    Auto-Pilot - I give up, it's downright lethal

    This phantom braking and other issues with Auto-pilot is road dependent i think. I have been using it for 7 months regularly on both motorways and A and B road and i have never experienced phantom braking or other dangerous behaviour

    REWARD if successful: help me identify where this annoying interior rattle is coming from 2021 M3P

    Its coming from the rear seat units vibrating against the parcel shelf that they rests on. I tied thick socks around the rear parcel shelf hooks to reduce movement of the rear seat unit and it has resolved the issue. Cosmetically not the best solution and Tesla remain adamant that there is no...

    Rejecting my 2020 Tesla M3P after 4 months of ownership. Sad day

    Your are certainly right. Tesla are digging their heels in. From their point of view the car is of satisfactory quality and the issues i'm having are either not covered by warranty or allegedly not present at the point of delivery or not part of the key functioning of the car which their...
