    What happens when you drive from UK to Europe? Headlight? Self drive overtaking?

    This is 100% my experience. Completely different from the flat ones in my 2019 SR+. My 2021 3 and 2022 Y both have the new style and both have the kick that is impossible to get rid of. Extremely frustrating.

    Lost my UK content on LTE

    I was wondering if anyone had any progress with this. My 3 LR had the UK based IP address but my new Y is back on the Dutch IP address. I'd love to get it moved back.

    HyperVolt Charge Points [megathread]

    I have a TWC gen 2 for my Tesla that's worked quite well since 2019. We recently got my wife into an EV and ended up going with Hypervolt for the same reason as @Bathurst mentioned. The ambiguity around the SIM card wasn't good. We've been very happy with the Hypervolt. They could definitely...

    European Road trip (Feb 2022)

    This was my experience last year with the projection headlights too, despite what the manual said. A real pain in the ass.

    Visiting my in-laws and my father-in-law's Gemini wheeled twin Model Y. It's his first EV/Tesla! We both got ours on the same day in Southampton. Apparently he's told my MILK that he's in love with the car and wouldn't go back to ICE if you paid him. he even refuses to drive my mother--in-law's...

    Ha! Well we had an SR+ 2019 Model 3 and I loved the acceleration in that. Then last March we got a LR model with the 4.2 acceleration and it made my SR+ feel slow. On a whim, knowing I had 48 hours to return it, I bought acceleration boost on the 3 and it was next level. Put you in the back of...

    I’d like to understand this too. We always had Green Flag as we had my wife’s car but she’s just gotten a new Leaf which comes with 3 years cover so I was considering just going with the Tesla cover.

    Ryzen browser benchmark - how does it compare to Atom?

    I never found that to have any lag before. My perception of the normal UI was that it was always snappy. Perhaps things like pinching and zooming around a map are marginally quicker but not like the step change in performance of the browser based apps.

    Ryzen browser benchmark - how does it compare to Atom?

    I’d love to see the results of an Atom to quantify what I am experiencing. Having moved from an Atom Model 3 to a Ryzen Y last week, I am totally blown away by the speed increase. Things like the browser, YouTube etc are so much more performant. It’s night and day.

    Adding driver not possible

    We had this exact scenario recently with my parents who live in California. They were out visiting us last year and I had my mom create an account for herself and added her to my car so she could control the heated seats from her phone in the back. A couple of months later she hired a Model 3...

    Yes, you’ll be able to charge it at least once without a payment method. It should show up in the app at or very near collection if Tusker have done their job correctly.

    Model 3 Roof Rack - Farad Pro Square Roof Bars

    They were a faff. The instruction set I had wasn't super clear, either. There was a degree of "figure out which set of instructions apply to what I'm doing now". Agreed on the noise however, as you've pointed out, they're quite easy to get on/off once they're assembled so I just pop them on...

    Thanks for the pics. Very pleased I went for the side bins now after seeing yours. I agree on the rear liner. I bought the Tesla OEM ones but really wasn't impressed for the price so I ended up returning them and I'll see if I can find something more rubber like online. I also want ones that...

    I think there may have been wires crossed/false hopes as the P models got all seasons from Fremont with the 22 model year changes so there was hope that it might have happened in Shanghai for the LR too.

    Thanks @Pete UK ! Looking great. I've got a blue with inductions waiting for me in Southampton so it's nice to see one (although I went with the black seats to mitigate the kids + blue jean risk!). Looks like significantly better weather today for you.

    I do. It's the only time I use it! I have a Type 2 charger at home but we tend to go to holiday homes for a couple of weeks in the summer and I use that plus a long tough leads extension cable with inline RCD to keep the car charged.

    It is known to not be the best with weaker signals from past experience. I ended up putting a power line adaptor and access point in my garage in order to get a consistent signal. My phone can pick up my house access point but the Tesla wasn't always seeing it. You might want to rig something to...

    I'm not sure I follow. That VIN indicates a 2021 model (the M instead of the N in the Hong Kong VIN) whereas all UK VINs I've seen show N for 2022. What is interesting is that "J" in the 5th digit. In the UK we have an H. I've not seen J in any of the decoders but it indicates a different model...

    I disagree - all of the ones on Amazon show the extra pieces either in the main product pictures or, if you look closely at the product pictures. The supporting section in the Hong Kong pictures is literally a lip that sticks out and has a hole at the end for that back flap to latch into...

    For all those still looking for insurance and also GAP insurance, make sure to look at Novo. I've been with them for a few years now. One of the biggest reasons is that the policies they sell are agreed value vs the standard current depreciated value model. So you put the price of the car at...

    It used to with the S &X, I believe. That being said, the homelink adaptors haven't shipped with the Model 3 since before the first deliveries in the UK.
