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

    This was pretty much wifey’s response after the last time it happened. Iirc her words were “that 💩 stays off while I’m in the car or you get a kick in the cahones if it does that again” …….I’m not willing to risk it🤣🤣

    2 EV Household - what else you got?

    I’ve never owned a car with blind spot detection prior to the M3, never been an issue in over 30yrs driving, so fail to see it as a “need” on any car for me personally 🤷🏼‍♂️.

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

    Plus 1 for that sentiment. I’m now at a stage where I never use TACC if wifey is in the car & I only use it if traffic is very light when I’m solo. It may as well be removed from the car for me personally, it just doesn’t fill me with confidence, which defeat’s the object of it imo.…….as I have...

    2 EV Household - what else you got?

    M3 LR for me, Hyundai Kona E for herself.

    Long delay replacing Model 3 Windscreen

    Probably stick a nice premium on there too. Hence insurance companies reluctance to use them, same as other vehicle manufacturers.

    Where is the speakerphone microphone?

    I have the same issue, never had an issue with any other car. Wonder if there’s a fault with the actual microphone.
  7. Xdama

    In car microphone sensitivity

    Is there a way of increasing the phone microphone sensitivity/ volume? I’ve had it mentioned a few times during phone calls that I’m very quiet when making calls in the car (I’m not a quiet talker lol). I never had any issues on previous cars so wondering about the tesla microphone location...

    Long delay replacing Model 3 Windscreen

    So Tesla use National Windscreens for glass replacement🤔, can’t you just go straight to National Windscreens direct then? Or is this Tesla hiking the price hence why insurance companies not wanting to use Tesla?
  9. Xdama

    Long delay replacing Model 3 Windscreen

    Ime with all service centres not just Tesla, just because you’re booked in for a specific time it doesn’t mean your car starts getting worked on until well after that. I’ve caught a few out before by dropping my car off and walking or driving past a couple of hours later to see it still parked...

    Long delay replacing Model 3 Windscreen

    Rang my local autoglass manager yesterday for an update on the passenger window. He told me it was due today & would call me once he’d checked it over. Lo and behold this morning he called to say window is here & ok, when could I come in. I said anytime today or next time I’m home 8-9th June. He...

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    Looks like a dodgy wall that ….. probably designed by the Tesla TACC team🤫🤣. (Waits to be trampled by the Teslarati)

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    As I said I’m not saying the TACC on the M3 is any worse than othe ACC cars ( shame it’s getting pushed on all from what I’ve read). The Passat ACC was awful too, so is wifey’s Hyundai Kona E, she knows how it should work, problem is it doesn work as it should🤷🏼‍♂️. But let’s stick a sentence...

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    Had an interesting conversation with a BMW salesman the other day about similar. I went for a nosy at the I4 (not overly impressed lol). I asked about adaptive & said I wasn’t a fan. His answer was “ you & I learned to drive when it was taught to look well ahead, nowadays people are taught to...

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    The lanes were no narrower than any other part that I drove on from Wakefield to Mansfield tbh. I’d even gone past other trucks etc with no incidents which made it even more random. I’m not saying the M3 is any worse than any other ACC tbf either. Just that if they want an autonomous car they...

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    My previous BMW was aluminium too so that doesn’t wash, sorry😁. The quote I received was mostly labour costs to isolate the “HV”, the actual repair was around £300 iirc.

    Happy to help🤣

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    40mile trip down M1 today, thought I’d give TACC another try. 2 phantom brake occurrences, so still garbage. 1 when changing lane 3 to 2 with a truck in lane 1 I can accept a bit. The other in lane 2 no changing lane on a straight patch going past a coach, sorry not acceptable at all. No one...

    How Secure Are Teslas?

    As long as I’ve nothing in the boot then I wouldn’t cry too much over a nicked car personally 🤷🏼‍♂️

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    Maybe but in UK we only have LV & HV unlike in the EU where they have an MV too lol. The Elctricity at Work Regs are for all electrical work, cars are no exception. I used to be a vehicle electrician in the forces and had to adhere to them then too😉
  20. Xdama

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    No it’s not high voltage ….. according to the Electricity at Work Regulations. I don’t make the regulations, I just have to adhere to them as should anyone else working with electricity🤷🏼‍♂️. I have seen the prices charged by BMW, I’ve owned 3 of them🤣, yes the service costs are high. Body...

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    Never use it, burns too much battery when it’s parked nose end in towards the pavement with it’s flashing headlight’s (plus the attention draw). It’s herringbone parking outside the flat I rent when working away from home, last time I used it local kids were dancing in front of the thing just to...

    Only 1 heated seat icon on bottom bar!

    Knowing my luck the car will probably never restart and need low loading to SC🤦🏼‍♂️🤣. Agree the car should do that itself if there’s history of things not working correctly after updates🤔. Does it actually state anywhere that this is necessary after every update anywhere?
  23. Xdama

    Only 1 heated seat icon on bottom bar!

    It’ll stay as is then, not that bothered that I can be arsed learning how to reboot a car🤣

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    Doesn’t take much to do a lot of damage to a car nowadays, they’re made out of tinfoil and plastic maybe a pair of Val’s old knickers and some sticky back plastic too🤷🏼‍♂️ Or are you talking about the wall🤔
  25. Xdama

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    Oh I’ve had the front passenger window damaged and back passenger window smashed ……. for a baseball cap too. Yes the quote for the back wing was insane from the official bodyshop … £1800 iirc at which point I looked at the guy incredulously before starting to laugh ….. I thought he was taking...

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    Unfortunately it doesn’t stop other wankers driving into your Tesla whilst it’s parked up and doing a runner though🤔. Which is just as expensive to repair as if you had damaged it🤔, hence mine having a dented back wing which will stay that way.
  27. Xdama

    Only 1 heated seat icon on bottom bar!

    At least you’ve managed to get heated seat, demister etc down there. I’ve given up now as I put them there and they just disappear after I’ve left car and got back in. Just put it down to another “is it worth my time & effort” issue on the car 🤷🏼‍♂️🤣.

    Is Tesla viable for very high mileage delivery driver?

    A delivery driver around here uses a Hyundai Ioniq with a roofbox on. I’ll try collar him & ask a few questions like miles per day etc.
  29. Xdama

    Is Tesla viable for very high mileage delivery driver?

    Mine through business for 15k a yr plus breakdown with 3pts on licence is £117 a month. I’d say a delivery driver around London is higher risk than myself so probably be quite a hit over the price of a small van🤷🏼‍♂️

    Anyone regretted getting a Performance M3?

    Not a cream lover myself, I’ll take custard all day long thx🤣🤣. There again 99% of the time the acceleration is of no interest either.

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    Anyone else noticed the latest update doesn’t accept destination addresses from Google maps in a usable format? I used to be able to send an address whilst sat having a coffee in the house. Since the latest update I can’t it’s split destination into Street, City, Country & Postcode boxes but...

    Rear window opening slightly

    Sounds similar, thx for this. As said to Adopado I’ll try to be more aware of the switches, see if I can nail it down a bit.
  33. Xdama

    Rear window opening slightly

    I don’t think it is but will be more aware now thx.
  34. Xdama

    Rear window opening slightly

    My M3 seems to have a sporadic fault on the rear windows. I’ll start a drive and realise wind noise is more than normal so check the windows using the close switch. On these occasions I find either of the rear windows cracked open slightly when neither of the rear doors has been opened. Anyone...

    What made you choose a Tesla?

    I’ve never driven by watching the car immediately in front, always 3 or 4 in front so very rarely use my brakes on motorways as I just ease off the accelerator or knocked dumb cruise off. I hate the drive up behind and hit the brakes style of driving which is what the Passat did, it’s a less...
  36. Xdama

    What made you choose a Tesla?

    Never actually owned any VW stable car, had a Passat Estate rental as a fill in between my last car and the M3. I can’t say it did anything for me personally ”just a car”. The adaptive cruise was shocking on it, it was style over comfort (diesel with the R pack, big wheel’s etc), the M3LR is far...

    What made you choose a Tesla?

    Of course they do, imagine the outcry from all the service centres if mass layoffs occur
  38. Xdama

    What made you choose a Tesla?

    I only use SUC on long trips, I either charge at home on Octopus Go (still on the 5p rate😁). Or even better at work for diddly squat (so far😉)
  39. Xdama

    What made you choose a Tesla?

    Delivery time was the least out of the possibles. SUC was another point in it’s favour, finally lease cost was the cheapest of the possibles. Now the SUC exclusivity is being removed then another manufacturer will probably get the nod next time. Especially as in 3yrs when the lease is up, other...

    Long delay replacing Model 3 Windscreen

    It’s the front passenger door window, some scroatbag tried breaking in and damaged that, before breaking the rear door window ….. all for a baseball cap🤬
  41. Xdama

    Long delay replacing Model 3 Windscreen

    Latest update from Autoglass after rear window replaced is the front window is being sourced from Belgium, as it’s quicker than getting it from Tesla. Apparently it would be mid July for a Tesla sourced one but hopefully within the next couple of weeks for the Belgian source. The autoglass...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Oh apologies for not having the connection to do a full history search whilst offshore. I’ll go shoot my boss for not having sorted a better connection out🤦🏼‍♂️ pretty certain Corbyn sees himself as left. As over the years I’ve voted both main parties depending on the policy promises at the...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Ah sorry, must have misunderstood the “they can start here taking nasty rich peoples second homes” statement then, silly me🤦‍♂️ Zelensky seems to like UK more than you do, wonder why that is🤣. I have no doubt there are reasons why we didn’t fully integrate into the EU complete with...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    So you expect the government to steal peoples houses / property, because it’s a second home. Yup I can see that going down well even Corbyn wouldn’t have tried that & he was all for the return to the 1070’s. They could make a start here though I suppose The civil service aren’t using it atm...

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    They’ve only had assets frozen …. not taken off them completely but hell why not. How many million do you think you’d get in there?

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    The Uk has a population not to far off the French population but with virtually a third of the landmass. Where exactly would you propose we house them, when there’s couple’s living in 3 bedroom council housing stock? We can’t even house our own homeless, shocking yes?

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    No idea, only did it quickly before setting off somewhere. Will see if I can be bothered again when I have more time.

    Russia/Ukraine conflict

    Have you ever tried getting a visa for a non UK/EU citizen to visit the EU from UK? It’s just as onerous I can tell you. I don’t think the UK gov has done itself any favours in it’s handling of the Ukraine refugees. Having said that it’s damned if it does damned if it doesn’t do something...
  49. Xdama

    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    Tried putting seat heaters, front and rear defrosters, and wipers etc on bottom bar after updating. Thought I’d done it but they’ve buggered off again🤦‍♂️ Obviously not tech savvy enough lol
