    M3P VS BMW I4 M50

    The weight is ridiculous....the weight of a Tesla comes as a bit of a shock when moving from an ice car...and now we are in a situation where Tesla drivers are surprised at the weight of a BMW...that and the exhaust cut outs and all it is is another poor design from Stuttgart

    Late 2021 onwards MIC Model 3s Have poor/faulty air conditioning from factory

    This sounds like the work I had done last week. The technician put a bit of tape on the top hose of the heat pump, and a plastic cover on an electrical connection below...just a quick job. Apparently condensation from the outside of the pipe can drip down onto the electric harness just below...

    FSD is a fraud

    Have you not heard of Tesla jail? I only meant that monitoring of Tesla is far more accurate

    FSD is a fraud

    Funnily enough, the Tesla salesman told me not to buy FSD...I guess that dispels the theory that Tesla ‘marketing’ is defrauding people

    FSD is a fraud

    Yes we have those things in Europe and the apps that go with it...but the insurance company or the apps can’t control the car

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Dealers are scum in this country as well...especially Volvo

    FSD is a fraud

    Tesla has already removed one feature last week...the car can no longer take you to an exit ramp..because of European law. Yet they are creating new laws to enable the use of Mercedes L3...I suppose the power of the German automakers in Europe is paramount. Since the Beta program is probably...

    2022.20

    Perhaps Tesla are speeding up the process🤷‍♂️

    Going from 2017 Model S to 2022 M3P, any downsides?

    I have a M3LR and I find that the central consul is so deep and roomy that I almost never need to open the glovebox
  10. Bouba

    FSD is a fraud

    Obviously it’s illegal to be illegal on the roads here...but they constitute the greater risk than FSD...in fact the beta program ‘might’ make the roads safer...and I look forward to the introduction of beta in France
  11. Bouba

    FSD is a fraud

    You can buy FSD in France...but there is no beta program....so far..

    FSD is a fraud

    How do they compare to the idiots already on road in their uninsured unsafe vehicles ?
  13. Bouba

    FSD is a fraud

    But it’s not just cars....when a new type of bridge or building is designed...eventually people walk in it. If the world was run by the naysayers we would still be arguing about building Stonehenge
  14. Bouba

    M3 look

    The much vaunted (by many on here) German manufactures like to keep a design going a few years...look at the VW bug or the Porsche 911
  15. Bouba

    M3 look

    I think Teslas look great...classic with just a nod to the future. The cars I would worry about buying are the ones from the legacy car manufacturers who just put an electric drivetrain under an existing body...those will date real quick when they start making dedicated electric vehicle designs
  16. Bouba

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    I think that any of these remote sales are subject to review when the car is inspected...in fact it can be a bit of a scam...the guy comes round to pick up your car, points to a few defects and immediately lowers the offer..meanwhile you are all geared up to getting rid of the car that very day...

    FSD is a fraud

    You can’t test human drivers without qualifications, you are supervising them

    M3P VS BMW I4 M50

    I’m guessing it was all done on the one charge
  19. Bouba

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    In my case, Tesla just used a commercial car trader to take your trade in... the only advantage to using Tesla to arrange it is that you can leave your old car at the Tesla pick up center while you drive off in your new Tesla.

    FSD is a fraud

    As a qualified driver you are allowed to teach a learner driver (without a dual controlled car). Hands off driving is implied in a license
  21. Bouba

    FSD is a fraud

    A driving license implies that you understand the responsibilities of controlling the car...basically, unless the wheels fall off, everything is the driver’s fault. Only Tesla (as far as I’m aware) has a continued policy of monitoring a driver’s competency....perhaps other manufacturers will...
  22. Bouba

    Horrible 2022 Model Y Tesla Experience

    Yes I agree...what people forget with the dealership model (and applies to almost any manufactured item) is that each party has deniability...the dealer will tell you it’s not their problem but the factory will say, talk to the dealer not us. I have been stuck in this chasm betwixt manufacturer...
  23. Bouba

    Can I walk-in service center if my model Y AC stopped working in hottest summer days?

    I purchased the Tesla roof shades for my M3LR....and what a difference it makes👍🙏...without them a little direct summer sun through the glass roof and your brain begins to boil...

    2022.20

    All the time...eventually we all get it..some just have to wait..and wait..

    EAP Return to US

    My feeling is that now EAP and 2022.20 have gutted FSD...something good will happen to FSD....and my guess is Beta for all...
  26. Bouba

    2022.20

    I thought all downloads only happen on Tuesdays...
  27. Bouba

    Older eyes need larger icons

    Perhaps variable focus glasses are the answer...it’s what I wear

    FSD is a fraud

    When it works it’s really nice...just a gentle reminder....unlike the wife who somehow chimes in first
  29. Bouba

    FSD is a fraud

    In reverse order.. 3. Just had my first home visit...best service in any car I’ve ever owned 2. I am expecting a big FSD update...they’ve just gutted FSD with EAP and now 2022.20 has traffic light chime on green...so something good must be about to happen 🤷‍♂️🤔🥺 1. I agree👍

    If they didn’t bring donuts then that’s their problem 🍩🍩🍩🍩

    Horrible 2022 Model Y Tesla Experience

    You guys are lucky👍 you got some work done....unfortunately I had a Volvo, so I only paid for the work...just never received any😡

    Can all cars adapt their suspension...or only those with adaptive suspension ?

    FSD is a fraud

    and we will debate this for six months...

    FSD is a fraud

    I’m not that happy with the buying FSD and buying a house analogy...it’s closer to buying a house for a fixed cost then the builder not only comes back to fix the faults but says that one day he will return and build you an extension and then another floor, change the kitchen all for no extra...
  36. Bouba

    Horrible 2022 Model Y Tesla Experience

    I also had a terrible buying experience...one of the most stressful things I’ve done and I also joined this forum to vent...but picking up the car was flawless as was the car...even the home visit of a technician to do a minor recall was a delight. Living with the car is another matter...closer...

    FSD is a fraud

    no product does exactly what it says on the can....a vacuum cleaner is only a partial vacuum and a car maybe a horseless carriage but what if it’s towing a horse trailer ?

    M3P VS BMW I4 M50

    My Tesla doesn’t 😂😎
  39. Bouba

    FSD is a fraud

    I like to think of it as more like crowdfunding. You invest because you believe in the vision of the company and you gain benefits by having the prototype product and the belief that it will gain in value
  40. Bouba

    FSD is a fraud

    ‘Scam’ is a harsh word...it implies that Elon has no intention of making a car fully self drive and that he has no investment or employees engaged in the business of making a self driving car. You and me and everyone on this forum are intelligent people...we know that apart from Kitt in Knight...

    What is considered a "long trip" when considering charging to 100%?

    I don’t think you can ‘top off’ the tank once it’s already in the high 90’s...it won’t go to 100% in those circumstances (at least mine didn’t)
  42. Bouba

    M3P VS BMW I4 M50

    I’m not saying that some Tesla factories haven’t had quality control issues...or that the one (and probably the only) saving grace of a dealer network is to get a car in a presentable condition for sale...but many many cars from many many manufacturers have inbuilt self destructing...
  43. Bouba

    M3P VS BMW I4 M50

    My 2021 MIC M3LR has no rattles or problems (so far..knock on wood) I suppose your car could just be a lemon and it’s possible to get a lemon from any manufacturer...but BMW is no better or worse than any other volume producer...if it was a genuine M car then maybe it will be perfect because...
  44. Bouba

    Model Y LR built in Giga Austin!!

    Yes, it’s a shame that Austin is starting off on a bad foot...it’s hard to change a culture once it’s begun..nobody wants to do more than they did in the first week, that’s when you are trying to impress the most...and then as these workers get promoted and become mentors for the next induction...

    Range Loss Over Time, What Can Be Expected, Efficiency, How to Maintain Battery Health

    One reason is that there isn’t enough power to charge the 12v battery

    Going from 2017 Model S to 2022 M3P, any downsides?

    No luck on the lottery last night..so no Model S for me😢 but it’s a roll over...so I’m buying one on Friday 👍😀😜

    Hyundai Ionic 6 EV sedan/hatch? leaked early by Motor Trend in full

    No one has details on the specs...that has to mean that the car still doesn’t exist..
  48. Bouba

    Hyundai Ionic 6 EV sedan/hatch? leaked early by Motor Trend in full

    Looks like a Porsche back and a Tesla M3 front....the Ionic 6 has the Porsche and the Tesla taken out, but in a typical busy way..like disguising a fir tree by making it into a Christmas tree...
  49. Bouba

    Less legroom on passenger side rear seat vs driver side rear seat?

    I cleaned my 2021 M3LR yesterday and I didn’t notice any slope or step…

    Hyundai Ionic 6 EV sedan/hatch? leaked early by Motor Trend in full

    Are they photographs or artists impressions ?
