    I did a similar journey today, NW to Bicester. On the way down I noticed that Warwick Southbound always had spare capacity when I looked, but not much. As it’s V2 I would have likely have charged slowly as it would have likely split the power with the bay next to me. I’ve stopped at Warwick...

    The old chargers had signs saying “Electric vehicle recharging point only” and “no parking at any time”. I can’t see any of these in the picture at the new location. Without it, some people may think the large spaces are ideally suited to large SUVs and 4x4’s.

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    About 4 weeks ago, Chargeplace Scotland and the old Greater Manchester network, which changed to Be.EV, have signed an agreement so that their chargers can be accessed from each other’s app and RFID cards. It looks like it’s been sorted and hence some of the Be.EV chargers appearing on CPS. The...

    I think it may only be a footbridge. There was a footbridge that was demolished a couple of years ago. They generally aren’t keen on letting you swap sides on motorway services even to charge, although there are exceptions such as Tebay.

    M3P Tyre Issues

    I had a bulge on one of my front Michelins recently. I got it replaced on my drive the next working day and didn’t use it until it had been replaced. They had done 8000 miles so I replaced both front ones rather than just the dodgy one.

    When I go to Norwich for the football, we find that parking and getting away is a nightmare as a lot of traffic is heading west so it makes sense to head east, despite us travelling to/from the North West. We avoid the obvious route in/out and go to where the Gridserve site is and park just off...

    Mobile Connector to be not included?

    I leant mine to a friend in his ID.4 when he was staying in a cottage as a backup but neither of us have ever used it. The ID.4 didn’t come with one. I also bought a weatherproof extension lead with RCD protection and a weather proof box to put the plugs in. When I first got an EV, if it hadn’t...

    PCN at supercharger Kings Lynn despite reasonable efforts

    The SuperChargers being referred to here are in hotels which generally don’t charge for parking whilst you are charging. The parking companies working for the hotels have cameras recording who comes in and out of the car park and if you are charging or visiting the hotel for any reason they...

    Andersen A2

    I’ve logged a ticket rather than call them up. I suspect that the issue is at Andersen’s end so I don’t really want to reset my box just yet until they’ve escalated the issue internally, or at least that‘s what I’d hope they would do with the numbers of people who look to be affected. It...

    I had a couple alerts in the middle of the night on my watch to say it’s offline. I’ve just checked and it’s also lost it’s signal and is showing lost connection from my phone. I have a WiFi mesh and one of the units is near the front window with line of sight to both the car and the Andersen...

    The Gridserve forecourts take a while to build with the Norwich one due to be finished soon and a load more planned but no dates apart from one at a London airport. A lot of the electric highway replacements at motorway services are still pretty slow due to power supply constraints and don’t...

    I think the services up there are classed as a rest area and I believe Moto want to merge it with a truck stop to form a full motorway service area and increase EV charging capacity but there are lots of politics going on in that neck of the woods as somebody else wants to build a brand new...

    Lost iPhone or Android and disabling access to Model 3

    We recently had a company phone which had been lost or stolen turn up on eBay. We found out about it when the person who had bought it phoned up to get it unlocked as the software on it locks it and displays a message.

    MagSafe charger for M3/MY?

    I use a Brodit mount behind the steering wheel. It only works for me in landscape mode. You buy a holder for your phone and then a mount for the car and attach them together. There is another mount other than the one I’ve got and they do them in both RHD & LHD. They aren’t cheap, but I’ve used...

    Mine updated earlier to 4.5.5 from 4.5.3. I also had the iPhone app updated earlier in the week as well. For the first time in a while, the Tesla app actually notified me that I had an update. I normally find out through a Teslafi email.

    New inventory availability

    My inventory purchase was towards the end of the quarter 17 months ago and I’m pretty sure that I had to collect it before the end of the quarter, although I had an incentive as I had a discount on the old M3P prices. I’ve not come across discounts on inventory stock for a while now.

    You have to be careful with the non-Tesla chargers. A lot of them are speed rated against 800v cars and at the moment most cars are 400v cars, like Teslas, which don’t benefit from the highest advertised rates. Tesla Superchargers are rated against 400v Teslas so unless you are power sharing on...

    I’ve also heard of plans for a new shopping centre at Scotch Corner with plans for 2000 parking spaces with 150 charging points. If you are heading north towards Scotch Corner it’s just before the hotel with the Tesla Superchargers on the West of the A1/M1. It might make the area a touch busy...

    How dangerous to leave house with only phone key?

    I’ve got a key card in my small footprint wallet which I carry as a backup and I’ve also got a ring with a Tesla NFC chip in it as well which I sometimes wear. I’ve only used it once when I left my phone in my desk at work and was nipping out for lunch and got to the car and realised I had no...

    Over on another forum, it looks like Ferrybridge is progressing with pictures of some of the 12 bases being installed for the Tesla Superchargers. It was posted by a Zoe driver looking for some new Gridserve chargers, which don’t look to have started yet. To be fair to Gridserve, with the...

    Autopilot - do you use in frequent lane change conditions?

    I don’t have the lane changing feature, but have used it on a trial. I recently came back from London on a Sunday night and I remember thinking how useful it would have been. If I were doing regular motorway miles, then I think I’d get it. As this car is a lease and I did no motorway miles in...

    New Highway Code Rules

    I agree with most of the changes but I’d like to have seen regulation, including helmets, on the use of electric bikes and scooters. Its not right that you can jump on a hired electric scooter but not use your own. New regulation is required to keep up with technology to safeguard these users...

    I was originally quoted a price for an A2 similar to Andersen from a local installer, and I decided to use the local installer. I had long running issues with the local DNO who insisted I fit a device to protect the supply and only use it at night until they could work out if I needed a new...

    BMW iX Overpriced in the UK?

    I’ve had 3 Alfa Romeos, but that’s the only brand I’ve bought more than once as, like yourself, I look for different things depending on circumstances at the time.

    Scheduled Departure Question

    I used to do the same as you, just turning the air con on, but I’d sometimes get the blue snowflake indicating that the battery was cold even though the interior was a balmy 22. I think you need to use the scheduled departure to warm the battery instead of using the air con. It’s also location...

    I did a trip on V11 on Monday. It initially tried to send me to Scotch Corner with the destination set to where I was going in Newcastle. I noticed the pre-conditioning come on occasionally.

    I set the scheduled departure for 7:30 in the morning. I also usually have the air con on all the time when I’m in it.

    One of the places we regularly use with the ID.4 is an Instavolt site near Banbury just off the M40, which has 8 fast chargers and an upgrade planned to 20 or 24.
