    I downloaded 12.13.16 last night and boot strut issue is still present today. Double beeps on boot failing to open still present. Argh 🥵

    Can you drive a Tesla without network coverage for an extended period?

    Yes the OTA update issue is noted, but can you drive a Tesla in very remote regions of the world without network coverage? Or is this a network dependent vehicle? Can you just drive a Tesla as a ‘dumb’ unconnected EV?

    Can you drive a Tesla without network coverage for an extended period?

    Yup. The Mrs said the map was not tracking her position accurately the last 5-10 miles of drive to the campsite.

    Can you drive a Tesla without network coverage for an extended period?

    I had an interesting experience where my wife went camping with my 2021 M3 in the Lake District this weekend and was outside of network coverage. She drove into a mobile network black spot with 65% charge with Sentry Mode on and the car didn’t reappear for four days when she drove out of the...

    Price hike

    I’m in the exact same position (March 2021 M3 LR) . I’d be buying the SR+ if I placed an order today or perhaps not even a Tesla. There will be loads of people priced out of a Tesla now with these price rises. Shame really.

    kW

    If you are driving an EV with 300+ miles of range and a hearpump. Just drive the car and use the heating aircon as you like. It will make no noticeable difference to any journey. Just enjoy.

    [UK] 2022.16.x

    I’m still waiting for my software update to test if this boot issue has been fixed for me, as indicated by cancelled Tesla service request. Also the issue with Sentry Cam memory stick needing to be reinserted when there is a red ❌ on the display.

    Trip to Rotterdam Via EuroTunnel

    Error above I can’t edit. It takes about 1 hr 30 mins to transit through the EuroTunnel including all queuing both ends. On both legs of the journey I arrived earlier than my scheduled boarding time and they just loaded me on an earlier train. It seems they leave about every 30 mins. I did...

    Reduction in range - roof box/bike

    I have a medium Thule roof box and notice that my energy consumption goes from abet of about 245 wh/m to 275 wh/m at 70mph in my M3 LR. On long journeys I find this is not enough of a difference to make any noticeable impact on where or how frequently I stop to charge. Perhaps I end up...

    Trip to Rotterdam Via EuroTunnel

    Trip Report! After a few delays I finally managed to complete my trip from Leeds to Rotterdam and back via the Eurotunnel in my 2022 M3 LR. My wife and two teenage children made the journey and stayed in Rotterdam NL and in Ghent Belgium. Rotterdam and Ghent are beautiful! The route including...

    Boot strut recall

    I’ve had a good read and can’t find my answer in this thread. My boot is not opening properly with the double beeps. What category do I book this service request under in the App? I can’t find anything that says doors / boot/ frunk Is it just under exterior/ other?

    What happens when you drive from UK to Europe? Headlight? Self drive overtaking?

    I’m an American living in the U.K. for 22 years and have experience of both situations. In the US the justification to In the use the notion of ‘probable cause’ seems to apply for the requirement to search a vehicle. But the justification to pull you over seems more vague and I think there is...

    What happens when you drive from UK to Europe? Headlight? Self drive overtaking?

    This was my response to the quotation of the Tesla owners manual saying no changes to headlights were required. I’m not planning to drive at night. But I do have some beam benders ready to use if needed. But where do you even apply beam benders to matrix lights anyway?

    What happens when you drive from UK to Europe? Headlight? Self drive overtaking?

    Don’t think I’ll be sticking beam benders on my M3. is there any mandatory safety equipment I need to travel in France, Belgium or Netherlands? Something about emergency triangle and Hi Viz jackets?

    What car awards: Model 3 #1 but model Y #10

    Does the Model Y have crashy handling regardless of which wheels you pick? What’s the Model Y like in the 19 inch Gemini wheels compared to the Model 3 on the 18 inch Aero wheels? I’m considering trading up to a Model Y, but my model 3 on 18s is as harsh as I’m prepared to accept.

    The slider in my Tesla app isn’t showing miles either. The in car display is set to miles not percent. I’m using iPhone app version 4.8.0. 2021 M3LR I miss seeing projected total miles on the app slider.

    What’s my PCP final payment?

    Yeah. It definitely is a PCP. The language used on the finance calculator on the Tesla car configuration is Optional Final Payment. But there is different wording in the finance agreement. Can anyone else with a PCP please have a look at their finance agreement and see what the wording is? ...

    What’s my PCP final payment?

    Thanks for this. Really helpful. I’d be hoping for about £7k on trade in. But would sell privately if this helped considerably with funding the next deposit.

    What’s my PCP final payment?

    Thanks very much. If my car is worth more than the £18,496 final payment, can this be used towards a trade in? I still have 3 years left on my 48 month PCP. Used market looks strong. Any guesses what sort of value my M3 LR will be worth in 3 years?

    Hi all Where do I find the details of optional final payment if I want to keep my Tesla at the end of the PCP? If I look in the Tesla App under the Financing section. There is a Loan Agreement, (see below) but I’m not sure which figure is this final payment? Also how does it work if I trade...

    Your Model 3 Maximum Range?

    Exactly the same for me: March 2021 LR - 337 miles at 100% Down from a max range of 344 when new; a 2% loss in range in 12 months.

    Brake Disks Look Good After Sitting 2 Weeks

    Hello all I’ve left my 2021 M3 LR sitting for 2 weeks without driving for 2 weeks. This is the longest it’s gone without driving since purchase. I came back to find the brake disks looking very clean. See pic. Much better than any car I’ve seen which would have very rusty disks in this...

    M3 with Laggy and Glitchy MCU

    Thanks everyone. I’m glad it’s not just me. The glitchyness of the Spotify is frustrating. Doing a reset seems to fix it for me, but I’m always reluctant to do this while in the move.

    How long until SR LFP range hits LR range

    I did consider the SR+ when I ordered my LR, but I discounted it due to range. I can easily get 275 motorway miles in poor conditions in my LR and have put this to the test. This simply isn’t possible in the SR+. This was really important for me in my choice. I would expect the LR to have...

    How long until SR LFP range hits LR range

    The LFP battery Model 3 is an amazing car and a compelling purchase. But I don’t think the LR battery will degrade to the point that it has less range than a LFP battery SR Model 3. For reference, my M3 LR has 341 range with 9,000 miles on the clock. Not sure what sort of degradation that...

    Is it me, or is the Model Y really ugly?

    I thought the Model Y was a bit blobby looking, but saw my first one in person yesterday. It’s proportions look good in person. I’ve revised my opinion. I think the Model X is now the fugliest Tesla.

    How to navigate to non-Tesla chargers on your Tesla screen?

    Is there anyway to view and navigate to non-Tesla chargers on my Tesla Model 3 screen? So far the way I’ve been doing it is by searching on ABPR on my phone to find the non-Tesla charger (ie Tesco 50kw ) then searching for and navigating to said charger on Tesla screen. But you have to do...

    Octopus Go vs EDF GoElectric Tariffs

    Thanks for that. I’ll give them a ring. Hopefully they won’t try and tell me that Go is unavailable. Sorry this is a little off topic. But I’m trying to find the silver lining with these energy price rises. I think with higher electricity cost, the break even date on my solar panels just got...

    This is a helpful post. It’s a shame that energy prices are going up so much. I’m currently on Octopus Go. But my tariff ends in a couple of weeks. Octopus have sent me an email suggesting a terrible tariff to go on to. But I can’t see how I can move on to their new Octopus Go tarrif on the...

    Charge Stats - Tesla app new feature

    This is an interesting new feature. I like it, although I can’t understand how it will know I’m charging on free solar when this begins to happen again (probably from March). I think the real value with this feature is being able to make your ICE driving friends jealous when you whip out your...

    Bugger! I’ve charged up to 100% for the Mrs to drive to the in-laws and back. Now the trip is cancelled due to ‘dangerously high winds’. What do I do with a car with 100% charge and nowhere to go? I think I might just sit in the car all day with the climate and bum heaters on watching...

    Comparison of M3 RWD and M3LR AWD?

    Many of us will have considered the difference in these two models very carefully. I’m sure. In the end it was the actual real word range of the LR that made the difference for me. I have a regular 200 mile round trip journey that the LR can do in any driving condition without a charge...

    Tesla buying money guilt :-(

    I work for a charity on a modest salary and spent 3 years saving £15k deposit for my Tesla M3 LR. That brought my monthly PCP payment down to about £476 a month which is just about affordable for me and is roughly what I was saving per month in deposit anyway. So I know what you mean about...

    2021 M3LR Range only 330

    This is normal. Don’t worry. Mine is 9 mins old with the same spec and has the same range displayed at 100% as yours. Your range may increase a bit in the summer. The most I’ve seen displayed is 343 miles. Ignore the claim of 360 miles. Your car is still amazing!
