    Chargefox network bought out by motoring clubs

    They've got a dying business model, mainly due to car manufacturers and insurers bundling in Roadside assistance and the expectation that EVs will require less call outs for assistance. Mainly due to the former they're seeing a reduction of members, and getting into the energy supply game is...

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    Don't discount the fact that in the past we've seen VIN assignments to occur over a weeks, whilst the build run all occurred over the course of a couple of days. It's a slow process, I had my Model 3 assigned once it was already on the ship from Shanghai. My guess is that it's a manual process...

    Roger that. Guess we just have to wait for the invoices to be issued to work out the actual build dates of this batch.

    Where are you getting the Build Date from? Does it have a complete DD/MM/YYYY date?

    Are they the same delivery location and configuration? If yes, then it's an apples for apples comparison.

    I picked it up a day later. I got the SMS to book my pick up about a week before the actual pick up.

    Work with 3-20 days if you're basing it on the date range that Tesla are providing. My car took 12 days to leave the port after the arrival of the ship.

    It gets complicated when you try to calculate for all of Australia, because a lot of it comes down to "it depends" (e.g. Perth cars sometimes get transferred onto a different ship in different ports). However to keep it simple, lets stick to Mel-Syd-Bne. Ship arrives in Port Kembla, it then...

    Tesla Model Y in Australia

    Rego usually gets done once the cars are at the final delivery destination, well after the invoice has been done. It's common for people on here to find their rego on their state government rego apps a couple of days before delivery.

    It's not chrome, what you're seeing that looks like chrome is the protective film that they apply to the cars for transport.

    I've tried that twice (2019 and 2021) on a Cruiser AWD, twice had my deposit returned. Agree that the RAV is super practical, however it's a nice drive as well. The 2nd cancellation resulted in me ordering my Model 3 and I've never looked back.

    More likely the latter given that they delivered hardly any LR or P in Q1.

    Australian Model Y Waiting Room

    At best they'll have a 2 week delivery range like they are getting in the Model 3 waiting room. It looks like those cars won't arrive in Australia (Port Kembla) until early August. From there they need to get off loaded, go through customs, get processed and then booked onto a car carrier to...

    What are its scheduled dates at Shanghai and Port Kembla?

    Australian Model 3 Waiting Room

    It'll come on Tuesday when the Reserve Bank meets, and will get announced Wednesday. My guess is 0.5%, if not 0.75%. No need to believe what I think, but have a look at what CBA did to its fixed interest rate home loans today and that'll give you a strong clue that it's next week.

    Australian Model 3 Waiting Room

    My experience has been that it happens in spurts over weeks. The cars are usually built over a couple days (we'll be able to confirm the build dates once people start getting their invoices) so build run has likely already been done before the shutdown. The positive is that they did a build run...

    Australian Model 3 Waiting Room

    Spare capacity on the production line now that Berlin is servicing the EU means that it's a new queue. The fact that you can't schedule a delivery of Y from Chatswood (M3 only) indicates that they are conscious of getting the maximum flow through of 3 deliveries. As an aside, got talking to a...

    It works. My study is on the other side of the wall of the garage and it doesn't unlock, you have to be almost within arms reach of the car for it to unlock. It locks itself based on time and / or walking away. If i get out at work and walk around to stuff around with the type 2 charger, it'll...

    What is the state of play in Oz with V2G?

    They usually don't offload Teslas in Brisbane, they go on to Port Kembla, clear customs, have some prep work, and then get trucked back up to Brisbane.

    This comment got me thinking about the bottlenecks that'll be worsened when they start shipping the Y. Known bottlenecks already include: Processing the cars as they come off the ship at Port Kembla and booking them on trucks to leave the port. This can take up to two weeks from the ship first...

    Worth a watch not just because the Berlin model previews likely updates that will come for Shanghai built Y, but because he confirms that all UK Model Ys coming Shanghai come with the parcel shelf. I'd be happy to wait for my Y so that I get the softer suspension setup.

    Once those that have been assigned VINs get invoiced, the invoice will contain the Build Date. Hopefully some people will start reporting they've been invoiced (and usually start asking "should I really pay straightaway?").

    Model-Y Comprehensive Insurance Recommendation

    When you read threads like the following you can understand that some insurers have a significant costs in supporting a Tesla insurance claim and have deemed them high risk. Just the cost of an EV replacement vehicle for the period of time waiting for parts can be significant. Lets hope that...

    Tesla Software updates - Australia

    My approach is when you're on a good version, stick to it until a stable version comes along with enough new feature(s) to warrant the risk of introducing bugs. I'm still running the v10 UI and haven't seen anything to warrant an upgrade. Yet.

    Model-Y Comprehensive Insurance Recommendation

    15 year customer with Shannons who insure my track car, but they treat Teslas as a "high risk" vehicle. I've since insured it with Budget Direct, but found Youi and GIO to be competitive and also offer a choice of repairer. Everyone's situation will be different so best to start googling for...

    My source was an SA, they're as much in dark as we are.I wouldn't be surprised if the MY does get delivered with the parcel shelf and along with other upgrades. It's happened to me before.

    SA told me it wasn't shipping with a parcel shelf. Given that a rear window tint will make it impossible to see in to I'm not bothered either way.

    There were LR and P delivered in Q1, just scroll back through this thread to February 2021 to find them. Not a lot, but there were deliveries.

    Australia Model Y reviews are out. The ride quality comment is a concern, it was one of the key reasons that I got rid of my Lexus NX.

    To add this, the AU cars have recently been built between the 8th-10th of the first month of the quarter (hence why we missed the April slot). Knock yourself out looking for a ship departing from the 12th onwards, the only real confirmation will be once this forum will light up around 15th...

    The work desk works well, it fits on either the top of the steering wheel or the bottom half so you can get the right height. I've done a bit of work on my laptop on it already.

    Correct. The "invoice due in a few days apparently" also needed quotes to reflect how much faith they have in what they were being told.

    The advice you've been given is spot on. I just went with Ceramic Coating and I'm really happy with it, keeps the car cleaner for longer and when it's time to clean it's super easy to clean. I decided not to go with the PPF simply due to the cost and that most of my kms are around town. It's...

    The SAs showed up to work at Miranda and saw the Model Y sitting in the showroom, and at that point they knew that the Model Y was going on sale. Take everything you read / hear coming from an SA with a big pinch of salt as they are usually as much in the dark as we are.

    Australian Model 3 Waiting Room

    If you're waiting for a car, the only thing that is a true indicator of an impending delivery is an assigned VIN. Knock yourself out trying looking at the source code, the only signal that will confirm that your car has been built and is on the way from Shanghai is an assigned VIN. Based on past...

    Enhanced autopilot (EAP) is upgrade to FSD

    It's a software change, so not necessarily. Reach out to your Tesla sales centre, somebody here recently changed colour via email confirmation and it didn't change their EDD.
