    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    I don’t think ours has PPF on the front bumper as delivered.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    38c is not that bad -- do not worry. And you should be able to turn on climate control from your phone (in addition to overheat protection, Dog Mode, etc). But my detailer would be very unhappy if I started turning on climate settings remotely. He said the first thing he does when he starts...

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    In my experience the phone needs to be quite close to the car in order for it to unlock. Indeed, just having the phone in your back pocket can be far enough away to mean the car won't unlock. This is with iPhones -- different brand phones may have different bluetooth strength.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    We had the Chinese trip counter labels as well when we collected yesterday. I renamed both to just A and B.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    My phone maintains the bluetooth connection (as shown in the Tesla app) from a pretty far distance, including inside my house. However, our Tesla will auto-lock after walking away about 10 meters or so. I presume you have the auto-lock feature set to on in the car, so not sure why your car...

    Key cards work only on driver side B pillar. Phone unlock does not unlock just be approaching the car. You need to open a door handle.

    TPMS assigned to wrong wheel

    Huh? They moved the location of the tyre pressure display. I believe it is still the same on older and newer TPMS cars. You indicated that some controls available with the older TPMS were removed when Tesla switched to bluetooth TPMS. I was wondering what those lost controls are. It really...

    Where did tire pressure go? V11 Model 3

    Works fine for me. Maybe it's different in the UK?

    TPMS assigned to wrong wheel

    I have a 2019 M3, so the older sensors. What controls do I have over them that the newer sensor cars don’t have? Genuine question.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    I am inclined to do the same -- just need the car first. Did you defer the start date until 1 year out or is it in force immediately?

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    Yes, most auto insurance policies offer replacement cover during first year as standard. Most GAP insurers will only issue insurance within 90 days of your purchase of the car. If you will want GAP insurance the advice seems to be to buy it during that 90-day window but have its effective date...

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    The cars get driven on and off the boats, transporters to final destinations and some shuffling in the car parks/delivery locations. I expect they allow themselves a buffer on the committed delivery mileage listed in the contract. Most will be less than 10 when actually handed over.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    Same here -- still wondering if our Y is on Morning Peace or was on RCC Europe. Collection at Staines tomorrow at 10am. Vin is 343xxx

    Tesla UK T0 Tyre Directive

    When I looked into winter tyres for our M3 in 2019, Tesla was supplying Pirelli Sottozero 3. Not sure if that is still the winter rubber they supply.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    I received that on Wednesday (also collecting at Staines on the 29th). I’m curious what self service means, particularly since we are doing a trade-in. Could be interesting…

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    The registration will relate to the delivery location. As a practical matter it is somewhat irrelevant which DVLA office the car is registered through. It just depends upon the collection location where the car is initially registered.

    Mine says, “we cannot guarantee the level of charge on your car.”

    Tesla Energy Plan

    I will try to find a summary of my experience I have posted in the past and send it via private message (to not encumber this thread). In terms of my yearly figures I would suggest it won't be much use for anyone else. We all have our own usage profiles etc. We are a high consumption home and...

    Tesla Energy Plan

    I’ve been on the TEP nearly two years. I’m not aware of any option to disable PW export. It seems a fundamental aspect of the TEP for which you benefit from attractive electric pricing 24/7.

    I thought it was Michelin on the 20” and Hankook on the 19”.

    Tesla UK T0 Tyre Directive

    Those are what I fitted for my winters, being the tyres Tesla sell and my insurer saying they can have no issue with tyres that are manufacturer approved. I did not buy them from Tesla.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    From the T&Cs that everyone agrees to when placing an order: "We may unilaterally cancel any order that we believe has been made with a view toward resale of the Vehicle..." and "we also reserve the right to refuse any future orders for other vehicles you may place with us." They frown on...

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    I expect it is getting removed and stored as soon as we have the car home. I am happy to have it but likely won't use it (we haven't in any of our previous cars with them).

    The thing I thought I’d like the most about my Model 3 is the thing I like the least

    You, sir, have a very active imagination. Sure anything is possible, let's see. My view is the better cameras are a function of Tesla buying 2022 technology for future car production. Why buy the existing versions if better ones are now available at the same or similar pricing.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    As long as the paint is without significant problems, I am not worried about swirls etc. I always take every new car in for a professional paint detailing soon after collection.

    UK Charge Point Installer Recommendations

    The Tesla control has never been a problem for me. Set a start time and adjust the charge set point to have the car finish by the end time you want. It would be better to be able to set both begin and finish times, but it is easy to work with what is currently provided.

    The thing I thought I’d like the most about my Model 3 is the thing I like the least

    Do you have any dash cam footage of these full on emergency braking events? That sounds truly terrifying! It is a miracle that we don't hear stories of rear end collisions more frequently.

    Alternatives to a tesla *gasp*

    Isn't the issue that used cars are available immediately while new have very long (and unreliable) lead times for delivery? That is certainly a major factor in the UK.

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    I believe the request is for a precise location of the Staines collection point. We all have the postcode but it is not certain where exactly the collection depot is (at least to me).

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery General Discussion

    I am sympathetic to those with a long journey home on collection day. Unfortunately Tesla are not known for deviating from SOP. And end of quarter collection days are likely to be extremely chaotic leaving little chance to negotiate extra time or mileage for flaw notification.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I think it depends on a number of factors, including is it a lease, expected ownership length, how desperate is the buyer for the car, etc. In 2019 when we had been waiting for a couple of years for the Model 3 to be available here I jumped on our delivery of late August 2019 without...

    “to the extent not otherwise prohibited by law” is there for a reason.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I chose the car configuration that appeals most to me. Isn’t it a bit of a guessing game to presume what particular specs will result in earlier or later delivery?

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Same experience for me with my Model 3. In 2019 LV was the best price and made no issue regarding trackers and I have stayed with them since. In getting quotes for the incoming Model Y, it seems LV is asking for a tracker to be added. Not sure what has changed, but I found a good deal with...

    My pickup is also on 29th June and I received my final invoice on 1 June. Curious.

    Paint Protection Film - Worth It?

    I really would like to get PPF on the Y when it arrives. Just wish it wasn’t such a minefield with insurance.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I'm fairly certain you need to apply for and obtain the CVD (cleaner vehicle discount), which requires a £10 application fee and submission of some documentation. And it must be renewed annually for another £10. CC Info

    It is the congestion charge exemption that needs to be applied for. ULEZ is automatic I believe.

    All being well, like a grey ghost! I promise to keep my mitts off any red ones I see.

    Trade-In, What do you need to take? (Cables, USB etc?)

    Once they have accepted the trade-in vehicle, I think they are on shaky ground trying to later claim something was missing. At least from an evidentiary standpoint. I am not advocating being dishonest and wilfully failing to include items that are expected to be left with the trade-in. Just not...

    Anyone in the UK 'upgraded' their Model Y suspension?

    When can I come by after our Y gets delivered? 😉

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Mine seems to buck the norm. My top right box has 6 line items: Invoice Number, Invoice Date, Reference Number, Customer Number, Scheduled Delivery Date, and Odometer. The Reference Number is my RN. In the boxes just below the Sold To/Delivery Address it lists my VIN. But nowhere can I see my...

    Just another data point -- my final invoice does not have my reg on it anywhere that I can see. But it was sent to me by text message the day after the final invoice was posted to my account.

    Octopus Tesla Energy Plan

    Not sure how big your PV system is, but I can only dream about any excess solar generation in winter months being available for charging our Powerwall. I do wish our PV system was larger but the roof was a limiting factor.

    Those do look excellent. You may have just parted me from £200! :) I've looked back through the posts but don't see it -- can you post a link to the ones you ordered, and where did you get the Tesla centre logos?

    Under the theory that you’ve already had to digest bad news, I’m keeping everything crossed for you that this must mean positive news is incoming.
