    Tesla showroom in Winchester

    The old Hendy Ford site is my understanding too. They've submitted planning applications for things like signage: Hampshire's first Tesla garage set to open in Winchester

    I too have had a range increase on my 2019 Raven Model X Performance, from 298 to 303 on TeslaFi. May seem small, but I've been very consistently at 298 for a while and 3 charges on 2020.28.x back up the new range. Could of course just be coincidental calibration by the BMS. Also finding the...

    Damn, yes! Got a Tesla... not a DeLorean.

    Cancelled deposit refund data point

    Seen a few posts on here about the length of time it takes to get a cancelled deposit back, so thought I’d post my experience: 28th Dec: order cancelled 2nd Dec: order disappears from my account 6th Dec: money appeared back on my credit card. Maybe it being start of quarter/financial year...

    Tesla customer purchase hell on a new car, i need advice please!!

    I got annoyed that my car stayed in Birmingham rather than getting ferried to West Drayton for collection... but looks like I dodged a bullet given the nice experience I had in Brum!

    Tesla customer purchase hell on a new car, i need advice please!!

    I picked up my ex-demo Model X on 23rd Dec from Birmingham (great delivery experience), which was a 19 plate as well (but is Raven!). They advised me to tax it when I picked up. It was a bit annoying as I wasn’t expecting it, but on reflection is expected nowadays for a pre-registered car. They...

    Damaged MX inventory demo car - collective wisdom please!

    Cheers all. Helps to get a second opinion outside my thought bubble!

    Damaged MX inventory demo car - collective wisdom please!

    Hi all Given my current Model X custom order is now delayed until Jan/Feb, I've ordered a same spec inventory ex-demo car. 3000 miles, built in June so is raven/ £12k discount of new price, which I thought was decent. However, I've been informed that the car has 'cosmetic damage' to the rear...

    More Uk-bound Ships?

    On Monday I drove past a car transporter going north on the M3 at Southampton, which I’m guessing had come from Southampton.

    Basingstoke owner wanted to test wall charger

    Thanks Jeremy - that info is helpful and reassures I shouldn't have to worry about whether it's working or not.

    Basingstoke owner wanted to test wall charger

    Ordered my MX and Andersen A2 at the same time... and the Andersen arrived first even with the 12 weeks delay! Charger is getting installed the weekend of 14 December and I was hoping there's an owner in the Basingstoke area who wouldn't mind swinging by and plugging in to see if the charger works?

    Best Electric charging rates UK

    There's a whole thread on the UK sub-forum: UK Electricity Tariffs for EVs Octopus Go has very cheap off-peak, but it's only 4 hours. EDF Go Electric off-peak is more expensive, but is 9pm - 7am and all weekend.

    UK Electricity Tariffs for EVs

    I switched to it. Once I had the smart meter installed, almost immediately I was on the off-peak tariff. Don’t yet have the car to test it with, but seems to do what it says on the tin.

    Model X Order

    UK orders seem to be caught up in a Brexit/logistics related delay. There's a couple of us on the UK forum in the same boat. I ordered mid-Sep another was in August. All being told Q1 deliveries now. I had the same call trying to persuade me to take an inventory car. Given the expected end of...

    More Uk-bound Ships?

    I had a similar conversation when they tried switching me to a 7 seat MX currently in inventory (I've got a 6 seat on order). Said that my batch was due to be built in December and shipped for delivery in January. I ordered in Sep with a Nov delivery. It surprises me that they won't try and get...

    Tesla showroom in Winchester

    Have it on good authority that Tesla are taking over the site of a main dealer in Winchester. I understand they were setting up a service centre in Southampton (still on the map), so not sure if this is instead of or as well as. Good location for supercharger given Fleet Southbound woes and...

    Please tell me more! There is Shortcuts on iOS that can now be similar automated. What’s the command you send to TeslaFi via Tasker?

    UK Accessory suppliers

    I ordered from EV Premium Customs in July and received it in October. Prior to that, it had sat in Heathrow (according to USPS tracking) until the final week, when seemingly it went back to LAX where it then came back to Heathrow and was delivered the next day. Unfortunately you won’t have much...

    Model X custom order pushed to Dec/Jan

    Good info. On that timeline I'd hope to have been getting a VIN now, not a delay message. Sounds like from the other thread there's been some wider rearranging of logistics. I had hoped by ordering mid-Sept I wouldn't get caught in the end-of-quarter crossfire, but I'll be hoping it's December...

    Charging near Brighton

    In my ICE in August I parked in Regency Square and there was an X hooked up to their chargers. That said, Zap Map seems to indicate some recent problems with the site. It is expensive to park, but the car park is in good nick.

    Model X custom order pushed to Dec/Jan

    I ordered my Model X (blue/black, 6 seat, silver wheels, carbon inlay) mid-September and was advised a November delivery. Received a text today (well three actually all saying the same!) saying it was pushed to Dec/Jan and if I wanted to change my configuration to get one sooner, reply Yes to...

    About LTE Sim Location in Model 3 ?

    On episode 214 of Ride the Lightning podcast someone phoned in about changing SIMs - he was in Brazil. After changing the SIM (apparently reasonably easy on a Model 3) you need to request a ‘Non-Tesla SIM Card Waiver’ from a service centre to get it to work. Jump to 46min 20sec in the episode...

    Is Tesla Chiswick showroom still open?

    Searched the forum for info, but couldn’t find any. Tesla Chiswick doesn’t appear on the Tesla map, but it looked open when I drove past a few weeks ago and Google Maps shows it still open. Want to head to a store before ordering an X and that is our closest one, otherwise will head to White City.

    Detailers / Ceramic Coating Berkshire area

    I've used Auto Curators before (based in Hook) and they did an excellent job on my Range Rover and will certainly be heading there when my Model X comes. https://autocurators.com/

    UK Electricity Tariffs for EVs

    I’ve just switched to the EDF EV tariff as my current tariff was ending. In theory they say there’s a waiting list (I'm ordering an X soon, so wanted to get on the waiting list) but in reality got my invite after two weeks. EV: Options > Tariffs While not as good as Octopus at 8p/kWh, the 9pm...

    Tesla rental for under 30s

    I've used a couple of EV rentals and a £3k deposit is not unusual. I've hired from 3FEV in the past and used iCarhireinsurance too insure the £3k excess, £40 for an annual policy.
