    Is this normal behavior for AP?

    I see this every day on a specific slip road that I am using. Speed drops from 60 to 55. I guess it depends on the curvature of the slip road since this one is quite curvy. On others where the turn is wider I am not getting this.

    Solar Panels UK - is it worth it?

    Any feedback is greatly appreciated mate. This has been helpful since I was thinking of calling this company due to proximity. I am currently evaluating these two: Solar Power Specialists and Solar PV installation, sensible priced repairs and online shop. Call the experts.. Any feedback on them? :)

    Solar Panels UK - is it worth it?

    Hi mate. Thanks for the prompt response. Yes the system is with Gateway included. That puts me a bit at ease :) We went recently through replacing our windows, doors etc and blimey the solar panel market is even more dodgy ;)

    Solar Panels UK - is it worth it?

    Hi all, Really interesting the posts of this topic although there are some that make me feel complete noob with the level of technical information. I am at the point where I am trying to get some quotes since we decided to move on with some home improvements. Anyone aware of decent installers in...

    Roof box on Model 3

    That would make massive difference indeed. I didn't change my speed or anything else so the drop I noticed was to be expected :)

    how low will you go!?

    10% the lowest I have ever been. Not really fond of going any lower :eek:

    Saggy steering wheel

    2 year warranty? Is it not four?

    I will definitely raise this then again since last time I was told it was no go. Thanks for the info mate.

    Insurance UK

    To be fair I am not sure what brings the price up. I played with the postcode, with the miles, anything you can imagine. The changes were minimal to nothing.

    Insurance UK

    First time this year my renewal quote from Admiral was lower than last year. From 1100 to 1000. Doing 25k miles per year, 9+ years NCD. Checked everywhere else; lowest I could find was 1600.... LV was 1800, DL was around 2k lol.

    Back end slipping/strange for some owners

    Well it could be because it is the first winter when so many 3s are out on the road and a few of them are on worn summer tires.

    Back end slipping/strange for some owners

    I had this once. Definitely road condition. Ice on a roundabout and me a bit faster than usual (take this roundabout every day) and the back of the car went all over the place. Next day when it warmed up no issues. I am doing 115 miles per day on various roads (from M to crappy B roads where...

    Should I let the service centre detail my car?

    Which SC is this one? On all my visits so far on SCs (Manchester and Chester) they never bothered washing it. Especially during my car's extended visit on the Manchester one last year (car stayed there for two weeks) when I got it back it I was surprised that they didn't even run some water...

    Model 3 Servicing Costs UK

    From what I read they are getting charged anything between 60£ to 100£ per service depending location and dealer. One guy mentioned that for the 4 year service (or 40k miles) he was quoted 500£. When he questioned this he was told that for the 4 year service they take the battery of the car and...

    Model 3 Servicing Costs UK

    I just saw a post on another forum regarding services on the Kona electric. They are having a laugh. Every 12 months or 10k miles whatever comes first. With this rate I would have had 4 services so far and I would be well on my way for a fifth.

    Check the fluid for moisture. There are kits on amazon for less than a tenner.

    How long can it sit at 100%

    No issue for a couple of hours and for the odd occasion. Problem would be if you were doing it very often and leave it at that charge state for days. Also I think i have read that the China made SR with the different battery type have no issue at all with this. You may want to double check this...

    Model 3 Servicing Costs UK

    What service? My car hit 2 years on December. I was at a SC last week for another issue and had the opportunity to replace the aircon filters. 56£. Checked the brake fluids myself and had the wipers replaced by autoglass while they were mending a chip. Tyres i replaced last year with...

    Roof box on Model 3

    I am a bit scared to do so. Even the manual of the roofbox warns against it.

    Battery Drain

    First of all is your car SR, LR or performance? US or China made? 20% can be quite different for depending on total battery capacity. What was the average consumption during this run?

    Roof box on Model 3

    Hi mate. No issues what so ever. I had it used four times so far. Taking on and off the roof bars is dead easy. Just need to be careful positioning the metal holders but if you lift the glass seals you can even see where the holders on the roof are and do a proper alignment. Taking the roof...

    30 hour wait for recovery. Lessons learnt.

    I had to wait two weeks for the front motor to arrive from Holland. Not too bad considering it was during lockdown and the ongoing mess at the ports back then. I was told then that Tesla was looking for storage and logistics facilities in the UK to improve parts turnarounds. Maybe this has now...

    30 hour wait for recovery. Lessons learnt.

    It happened during really bad weather so I was a bit suspicious regarding the integrity of the motor unit against water. But in any case never heard back.

    30 hour wait for recovery. Lessons learnt.

    I wonder if you will get any feedback on what caused the HV battery issue. I doubt it though. I remember when the front motor failed in my case they never communicated to me what the issue was.

    Electric Tow ball

    I have the towbar to be honest but never used it (got it freebie but that is a long story). Do you mind sharing what trailer you got? I am planning on some major pond rework this spring and it will come handy ;)
  27. Envchem

    Electric Tow ball

    Purely cost and the fact that with low towing capacity not many people will probably go for it. (limited use).

    Plastidip Tesla logos

    looks like they do the dual motor logo too: DUAL MOTOR" emblem for rear trunk - Tesla Model S, X, 3 & Y

    Plastidip Tesla logos

    Silly question but how easy was to remove the original ones? I have plastidiped the original ones but I have to be so careful when I wash them that I would like to replace them with something like this.

    Pull over immediately error message

    Price for aircon filters with installation 56£. Not bad and I couldn't be arsed to do it myself lol.
  31. Envchem

    Pull over immediately error message

    Final update on this one. Got confirmation from Tesla that the error message was random. Couldn't figure out what caused it. Since I was already booked for service I got the suspension recall work done ( resealing) and got the opportunity to replace aircon filters. All in 1 hour. Chester SC...

    Well still i am not convinced that a french speaking homeless man would hack a tesla to watch Netflix and do drugs.

    Crackling when plugging car in to charge

    Right. Have you tried it with the 3 pin charger? Sorry if I missed this.
  34. Envchem

    Crackling when plugging car in to charge

    90% it is the cable. I had a similar issue a while ago with crackling noise when I was plugging the car. It did it twice and the third time car was not charging at all; the light was red on the charge port. Plugged in the tesla cable and charged fine. My neighbor is an electrician so he opened...

    Model Y - Test Drive

    This is interesting. Do you have any information on this? I watched the presentation (well part of it) when Musk was there end of 21 and all the photos from the production lines etc and all photos of Ys where with the 4680 batteries and the single structural frame on different stages of...

    Model Y - Test Drive

    Thanks for photo mate. Looks like they haven't implemented that shelf then. I bet after market options will be available. Or a guard for when loading boot to the brim. Had an instance in the past where boot was loaded to the brim and after a hard break I had a few things (not heavy thank God)...

    Model Y - Test Drive

    Can anyone confirm if the Model Ys for the test drive have a parcel shelf? Based on this they should? https://insideevs.com/news/547812/mic-tesla-modely-cargo-cover/

    Insurance renewal

    Gave it a shot to be honest like 10 minutes ago :) 1454 cheapest option. At this point I give up. I will stay with Admiral which is 1k for renewal (down from 1,1k last year). To be fair I am quite happy with their level of service since 2 months ago I had to replace the front part of the glass...

    Insurance renewal

    My guess is that they would check what your cover was for the previous years and act accordingly. So if lets say in my case where I clocked 45k miles in two years if I was covered 10k each year then they could say that my cover was invalid all this time? I don't know; but better safe than sorry...

    Insurance renewal

    I have 9 years no claim bonus but I do 25k miles per year. I thought it was the postcode that pumps it up but out of curiosity I used my previous post code which is considered quite posher compared to my current and interestingly the quotes went even higher! LV went to 2k!!! I give up; doesnt...

    Model Y - Test Drive

    I wonder if the noise is generated by the way the boot is separated by the back row of seats? I just noticed that the boot area is not really separated. My wife's mini for example which is a hatch has that self on the boot. When we have to take it off to fit a pram the noise difference is...

    Model Y - Test Drive

    I believe the German build is supposed to use the 4680 battery pack which is integrated in the car and the car itself will be build as a single structural part? (cant remember the exact term). If that is the case then parts will be completely different from the US and China ones. Although it...

    Model Y - Test Drive

    The Honda is an ICE though isnt it? You would expect an EV to be more quiet. It is day and night for me when I drive my wife's mini and I find my 3 to be quite noisy for an EV.
  45. Envchem

    Model Y - Test Drive

    Very interesting the comments about the noise. I was contemplating a possible swap to the Y but my kids are still too young (2 and 4), I already have roof racks and box for the 2 times per year I actually need the extra space. I got used to the noise levels of 3; I certainly don't want to move...

    30 hour wait for recovery. Lessons learnt.

    Sorry to hear this mate. I hope you don't have to wait for too long. After all is done and dusted would you mind sharing the cost? I know it will be covered under warranty but they will provide an invoice. My front motor was initially invoiced 3k if I remember correctly.

    Model Y 4 Year Depreciation

    I believe any future price will also depend and what will happen with the Model Y produced in Berlin. If these arrive in the UK market with the 4680 battery pack and maybe increased range then the current ones will take a hit. Same will go with 3.
