    Tesla friendly MOT centre near Buckingham/MK?

    MOT is also about road-worthiness...although with the mount of clapped out vehicles i see driving around i do wonder how they ever passed their MOT's!

    Attention Any Potential New Owners in London

    Huh? what pandemic?? As ACanerio noted, i wasn't specifically talking about meeting right now! Just putting it out there to help any fellow EV owners or those need some reassurance! Of course initially all contact would be virtual or over the phone but in time we will be allowed to meet other...

    Non-Tesla recommendations for 2nd cheaper EV

    We just bought a Zoe as a second EV to our Model S and love it. Its got long range and is a great size to use as a runaround. There are also some very good lease deals going on it atm.

    Chargeplace Scotland 50kw CCS??

    This would be very handy to know as we are travelling upto Scotland next week and staying on Loch Lomond - the hotel doesnt offer any charging facilities so was relying on the rapid chargers in Balloch!!

    Model S/X CCS Adaptor - Experiences?

    My understanding is the CCS retrofit will not impact charging speed vs the original connection we are used to, it just increases the options available to us re charging. I am assuming you arrived at Liphook with either a cold battery and/or a higher state of charge which both lead to slower...

    Model S/X CCS Adaptor - Experiences?

    Mine is scheduled for Friday too - really hope they don't push it back as they have already done this once due to lack of available parts. We are off to Scotland (from London) next weekend so the CCS will be ideal as a backup to use the wonderful Chargeplace Scotland network!

    London to Scotland Road Trip

    Planning on setting off to Scotland from London in September with my wife and 3 year old. Looking for any ideas for a 2 week itinerary as well as things to know for this trip. Don't want any single day drives longer than 5 hours so currently planning as follows: London -> York (spend 3 nights)...

    UK Black M3P with tints and chrome delete

    If you are based near London can definitely recommend Andrew at EuroTint as they chrome deleted my Model S and tinted it. They also do full wraps. I think i paid way less than £550 for both tinting and chrome delete so well worth checking with them first

    Potential new Model S owner

    You can always apply an aftermarket wrap. There are some tutorials to do it yourself or you can just goto a detailing specialist who should be able to do the job. I too have an S and am looking to get this done by a detailer.

    Model S - Dashboard and other internal Wrap

    Free premium Connectivity ending

    Yup mine too - seemed to coincide with the 2020.16.2.1 update although not sure if that was a coincidence. Will be waiting until after lockdown too before i subscribe as i do miss the earth view!

    Tesla Brooklands/Weybridge Service Centre - CV19 procedure?

    i asked and was provided a loaner although was told they are short of them at the moment. Best to call a couple of days before your appointment and ask for one

    I'm sold to these Eufy cmaera's and just ordered on Amazon. Have been procrastinating on buying some but these sound perfect - thanks for mentioning them!

    Free premium Connectivity ending

    One way to think about this is Tesla now want £120 per year for Premium Connectivity vs the now £310 saving we have from not having to pay VED. Whilst I am not the biggest user of Spotify (but our young son loves having it), I do really like the satellite maps. I know its not worth the money but...

    How to get a Luxury Car Tax Refund

    After reading many success stories on the FB TOGUK group, i SORN'd on Sunday online and went to the Post Office on Monday to re-tax at the new zero rate. I am now patiently awaiting my refund :)

    Nothing in my release notes about it and I just got 2020.8.3 today...but then i have a HW2.5 car so that's probably why!

    v2020.8 rolling

    DId you have to enable any options in the menu to see these visualisations? Also do you have HW3?

    Manually Enable Rear Heater Vents

    This has probably been covered before but i couldnt find it- how do you direct heat to the rear vents with a child seat in the back? I know these auto-enable when a person is detected in the back (presume this uses the same seat sensors as the seat belt reminder) but how do you direct heat...

    Doh my bad. I just searched about rear heating and didnt check where the post resided...apologies!

    Free FSD on some inventory models

    2020 Model 3 | Tesla UK Although are you sure just because it says Full Self-Driving Capability it means it has FSD or does this just mean it has all the hardware and you still need to buy FSD software?

    Give us manual control for rear AC/Heat

    Thanks but that's a Model 3 - i have an S and that button isn't there. apparently the car uses the seat sensors to determine if someone is in the back but i have a car seat for my son and i assume this doesn't trigger the sensor as it also doesn't trigger the seatbelt notification! BTW Dirty...

    Per the DVLA website they should send a cheque and to contact them if nothing received within 6 WEEKS

    Give us manual control for rear AC/Heat

    Picking up on an old thread but this option is no longer available so how do you direct heat to the rear with a child seat in the back?

    How to get a Luxury Car Tax Refund

    Ok makes sense. The test is if the refund comes in. A lot of people on the FB group believe you won't get anything but the rules seem confusing so let us know when you hear anything on the refund please!

    Did the lady at the post office confirm if you would get a refund?

    How to get a Luxury Car Tax Refund

    Thanks for this - have been asking about this on the Tesla Owners UK FB group but no one is sure if they refund the 'luxury' part of the VED and there's lots of unhelpful comments! I didn't SORN yesterday for fear of not being able to re-tax but i will do it now knowing I will lose April's money...

    Free FSD on some inventory models

    This! just means it has the hardware included i.e. HW3. Doesn't mean you have the software unless you pay

    I'm sorry but these people are absolute idiots with no regards for the safety of anyone else. And this is regardless of the current situation with the stress the NHS is under!

    Car not waking up via app

    I noticed the same today with my car. Couldn't connect to went into the car and saw no signal and this quickly switched to LTE - as others have said must be an issue when the car goes into a deep sleep which is probably happening a lot now for most people given the current lockdown and...

    Not achieving full supercharger potential

    The major factor with charging speed will be the state of charge of the battery. The lower it is the faster it will charge! As others have noted, ideally below 20% would give you the best speed. As the state of charge increases, the speed the battery can take reduces quickly so do not expect...

    New Owner Questions

    Re your request for having Sentry Mode come on at specific times, if you have an iPhone, you can use the Shortcuts app to schedule API calls to set and unset Sentry Mode at various times. I park my car on the driveway but have Sentry turned off at home. However at 8pm i want Sentry to turn on so...

    March Budget 2020

    Maybe going back over old ground already covered here but to confirm: i just paid my first VED payment for my Model S (2nd year of ownership) in January. Is the thinking i should declare it SORN on 1 April and immediately re-tax at the new zero rate and I should then be given a pro-rata refund?

    UK's first custom charging forecourt

    1 day insurance

    I believe Direct Line provide this although you might need an existing policy with them. I have my Model S insured with them and when I had to make use of a Tesla courtesy car they provided me with cheap cover

    UK's first custom charging forecourt

    It's great this is happening here in the UK. I expect the cost to charge to be high initially but if we as EV owners can back this sort of development it should encourage other companies to build similar charging stations which can only help lower the eventual price they charge (assuming they do...

    Best USB for dashcam

    I am a Model S owner :). However I haven't been using this setup for that long but i ensured i bought a very high quality SD card which is made for constant rewriting and so far i have had zero corrupt files whilst previously with even the fastest USB drives i was seeing constantly corrupted...

    Best USB for dashcam

    I've gone thru many USB drives for this and finally settled on an high performance SD card and a Rapsberry Pi and its flawless. The bast bit is you can set this up to automatically backup the videos when the car comes in range of your home wifi so videos are viewable without having to physically...
