    2021 Trunk Damage Upon Open/Close

    I thought that was only a thing on the Model 3? Does the Y only have one powered strut too?

    Naughty Tesla WWYD?

    i think I’d think “oh” and then get on with my day. :p

    Do we trust Tesla with our cars/data??!!

    "Tesla" is a big entity. Do I trust everyone that applies for a job at Tesla? Should I? Rogue employees are very much a thing. Also it's a bit of an argument to absurdity to talk about Faraday cages as if the only choice we have is to either blindly trust Tesla or live off of the grid.

    New delivery MY differences

    There are 10 different part numbers for front suspension on the German EPC. Notably there are ones marked as "PERF", suggesting the Berlin MYP has different suspension to the LR. There are 5 listed for the rear - again, with a couple marked as "PERF". The UK EPC only lists 2 part numbers for...

    Do we trust Tesla with our cars/data??!!

    Technically nothing stopping them creating service requests on your behalf, though? I've had service requests appear and disappear without going near the app, just from speaking to Tesla SCs.

    Do we trust Tesla with our cars/data??!!

    I've always been asked to disable P2D when I've gone to a service centre, but I've heard of other people saying that they've turned up and Tesla have just driven the car anyway. Since hearing that I've tended to think that they've just asked me to disable P2D to make me feel better. It would...

    Battery Drain

    Apropos of nothing but I am completely and utterly done with YouTube thumbnails like that. I know it apparently works best for algorithms, but I don't care, it's grating.

    [UK] 2022.16.x

    I always press the brake pedal even if it does nothing because ergonomically it makes me feel like I'm CTRL+ALT+DEL'ing the car.

    [UK] 2022.16.x

    Are you saying you’ve got that feature? Or are you going by the release notes posted elsewhere?

    Water egress

    Don't think you should be concerned. The same thing has been reported multiple times by different people. The word around the campfire is that the car occasionally "does something" (technical term) with the A/C to ensure that it is running properly, cleaning out any algae/mould. I think it's...

    2022.20

    You're essentially right. I forgot that "Chime on green" was even an EAP/FSD only feature (maybe only an FSD one?), it's so inconsequential to me. "Traffic Light Stop and Go" is still all that FSD has to differentiate itself, at least in Europe. That "feature" is definitely not worth twice...

    I'm also keen to know what a "Superchaged" show is. (sorry @Verydisco)

    Removing a broken keycard

    Wow that's a bit crap isn't it.. to remove a card you might have lost, you have to present.. the lost card? :(

    Removing a broken keycard

    You should have two keycards. As above, couldn't you just use the other one?

    Glare from side repeaters in blind spot camera?

    Massive improvement for me. I couldn’t live with the glare I was getting with night drives, and I didn’t want to keep having to turn the feature off when it got dark as it was perfectly useable during the day. As to whether it was worth spending the cash. Hard to say. Mine is fixed now and I...

    I had mine done by Bristol Tesla.

    Glare from side repeaters in blind spot camera?

    I'm annoyed that I had to pay for my replacements (March 2020 car). Got nowhere arguing that others had got theirs done for free. :(

    Auto Express Top 29 New Car Makers

    Watching that video, but damn the automated voice is grating already. Makes me think I'm on TikTok which is like nails on a chalkboard.

    Auto Express Top 29 New Car Makers

    Yeah, Tesla accelerated the perception of cars as being basically treated more like smart phones or laptops. The dealership model is definitely something that has proven to be effective, as has the mobile service option, but it not without its issues either. I would perhaps argue that as cars...

    Auto Express Top 29 New Car Makers

    I feel like the fact it has a minimalist interior and a big iPad on the dash is the extent of the critical thinking that is applied. As you say, when you scratch below the surface, the missing or poorly performing features for a car at this price point is frankly embarassing and irritating as...

    Parts delays in insurance claim, 3 months and counting

    Yeah, it's pretty shocking from a design perspective that an entire front loom is needed to get an indicator working. I'd like to hope this has been resolved on later cars! As @Casss said the very shortage of parts that led to this being written off is exactly what makes the car so valuable...

    Parts delays in insurance claim, 3 months and counting

    I'd be gutted too. It might be worth £X but I'm sure it was worth more to you in terms of familiarity and knowing all of its foibles, etc. Quite surprised it has been written off though given you haven't had a loan car. Having a loan car for 3 months would've certainly accelerated any write...

    High power usage when idle / parked

    It’s a difficult thing to diagnose without actually using third party tools that use the Streaming API. Opening the Tesla app will wake the car up if it’s asleep. What you could do is check how long it takes to tell you the status of the car when you open the app. If it says “Parked” at the...

    Can I DIY install Matrix headlights since my new Model 3 didnt come with them?

    No, I mean that by the time Tesla actually starts doing something meaningful with matrix headlights, which could be months away, they might end up bringing out newer versions of the headlights, with changed functionality. In other words - the matrix headlights currently being fitted to cars...

    Can I DIY install Matrix headlights since my new Model 3 didnt come with them?

    I wouldn't lose much sleep over it, they don't actually do anything at the moment and there could easily be a hardware revision to it on later cars once Tesla actually get around to trying to do something productive with it.

    Charging for terraced houses

    Only problem with that is that it wouldn't effectively capture stuff happening down the sides of the car, but I suppose anything that does happen (e.g. a break in) they'd probably have a mask and hoodie on anyway. :(

    The curious case of the missing podcast app

    Open a service request with a software problem and Tesla ought to be able to fix it remotely, from what I've read on other threads. Other people have said a factory reset fixes it, but that's a bit drastic.

    Expired trade in update

    That doesn't seem like a good sign. It would tend to suggest that Tesla aren't keen on giving quotes that might end up being too generous by having 60 day validity periods, and that the likelihood is that with each consecutive 30 day period the prices are more likely to trend downwards than up...

    Ok, I tried Tidal, and…(and “premium” audio too)

    IME playing TIDAL tracks whilst connected to my phone hotspot sounds as good as the FLACs on my USB SSD. There might be some difference, but I can't hear it. There is definitely a perceptible SQ difference between that and Spotify (WiFi or LTE), or TIDAL over LTE, although that feels like a...

    Charging for terraced houses

    The Podium has 7kW chargers? I thought it was just Charlotte Street and Southgate. I'm over in Timsbury which is basically a wasteland as far as rapid chargers goes. I have the same options as you, or further. I used to use the Bailbrook one a few times in my previous EV, but always felt a...

    Charging for terraced houses

    Realistically I can't see any way that the Govt is going to be in a good enough place to meet the 2030 deadline. 8 years sounds like a lot, but it's not really, especially when the Govt isn't even particularly focused on it. Even new build estates aren't being built with roadside charging in...

    TeslaOffer "Eagle Eye" rear lights

    You could probably retrofit the OEM C-style brake light clusters to a 2022 car. I'd be amazed if it didn't have the same wiring, and probably works out of the box since it's not a functional change, it's an internal aesthetic one. The good news is that you can't even see the rear lights when...

    Overstaying at a charger

    +1 I've unplugged someone before, because their car had completed charging and I had sat there for 30 minutes already with no sign of them. I have a clear conscience about it. That being said, when I first got an EV (Evezy i3 on subscription) I had no idea how long it would take to charge, so...

    New delivery MY differences

    Unfortunately it's going to be hard for owners to confirm one way or the other. I enjoyed the RSymons video but I think I'd want to see other reviewers testing actual UK delivered cars on typical surfaces before drawing conclusions that Tesla have actually made changes to it. For all we know...

    Switch to a Porsche Taycan or Audi E-Tron GT?

    Legacy manufacturers need a sea change in their software development. It is a mystery to me why the likes of Audi, Porsche, etc UI/UX is so far behind Tesla in terms of the Ui/UX. I mean, there are countless examples of really high quality apps that exists on the Apple app store, and I'm...

    Expired trade in update

    It does seem odd that they've swung the other way. I mean, for my car Motorway is offering me approx £49,200 and Tesla are offering £48,800. With the latter I'd have to buy another car to get that, with the former it's cash in the bank. You'd naturally assume a trade-in quote would be better...

    Expired trade in update

    I honestly don't think customers have any leverage with Tesla at the moment. They arguably never have when it comes to sales, but particularly now with lead times going out. Tesla know that they can sell the car they've allocated to you several times over so they've got no real inclination to...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Yeah, I think that's going to affect a lot of people. Tesla's trade in quotes have gone down a lot in recent weeks, mine dropped from around £53k to £48.8k. They are also not particularly motivated to do anything to help you because they will sell the car easily enough to someone else anyway. :(
  42. Durzel

    Expired trade in update

    Motorway offered me marginally more than Tesla were offering recently, I think it was ~£49,200 from Motorway vs £48,400 from Tesla (down from £55,700 at one point a few weeks earlier). The opposite was the case up until recently, but I think Tesla were doing their end of quarter pushing...
  43. Durzel

    Expired trade in update

    I'd prepare yourself for disappointment. There is evidence to suggest trade in prices have dropped precipitously recently, and Tesla are in no way inclined to inflate anyone's specific quote, or "do them a favour", with lead times being what they are, etc.

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    Blended brakes is a 2022.16.x feature, and isn't even available in the UK (and rumour has it, anywhere on 3/Y currently, having been pulled from release late in the day). I've not heard of a single 3/Y that has had it in the release notes, including older cars with all the regen options...

    First puncture with model 3 this morning.

    I've heard varying stories about Tesla recovery and different opinions about what customers ought to expect. Some people say it is for breakdowns only, i.e. major problems with the car. Others suggest that a flat tyre is essentially a breakdown, just not a mechanical one, and should surely be...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Yeah that's a fair point. Unfortunately it's one of those things that is very hard to prove conclusively one way or the other. It could be that the measurement is more accurate, i.e. that the 301 miles it is telling you that you can travel is more accurate than it used to be, and that you can...
  47. Durzel

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    That option isn’t in 2022.12.3.6, is it? It’s supposed to be in 2022.16.x but it’s not in that either, at least as far as is known.
  48. Durzel

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    If it's any consolation you were never going to be able to actually travel 340 miles on a full charge anyway. All you can really do is drive it around for a bit, down to different states of charge, and see if the car "learns" how far it really can go, to see if they are correct. Beyond that...

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    Yeah, it's definitely a smaller market. It's something I was a bit concerned about when I bought my M3P outright, i.e. that in terms of selling it on it would pretty much have to be traded in or sold to the likes of Motorway, etc.
  50. Durzel

    [UK] 2022.12.x

    2022.16.1.1 has a problem which messes up the rear screen in Plaid cars, but obviously that doesn't apply to Europe (I don't think?). Perhaps Tesla just stopped the rollout of that build worldwide regardless.
