    Denmark: P90D sticker price to increase 180% on Jan 1 2016

    There is no customs duty to pay for buying goods anywhere in the EU / EEA, that is the very basis of the EEA AGREEMENT for free trade as far as I know. For this reason you can buy from any Amazon website in any EU country and you will only be charged the difference in VAT between the two...

    Ludicrous with 19s: dumb? or negligible difference?

    Oops I didn't realise a blowout meant rapid deflation in the USA. I meant literal blowout of the tyre where pieces of the tyre are flying off the rims!

    Denmark: P90D sticker price to increase 180% on Jan 1 2016

    Another interesting point is that VAT is not due in ending country if more than 6 months old and more than 6000km used! Might need to explore the CPO options in other countries where Tesla is based in the EU :)Importing vehicles into the UK - GOV.UK "Second-hand vehicles You don’t usually have...

    Denmark: P90D sticker price to increase 180% on Jan 1 2016

    VAT isn't normally exempted for other products that I have bought from the EU, you pay the difference in VAT if the VAT one paid abroad is cheaper. But no customs to pay. Didn't look into it further as want sure if I could buy the version with the steering wheel on the right side for the UK in...

    Denmark: P90D sticker price to increase 180% on Jan 1 2016

    But Norway has agreements with the EU hence why they pay EU levies (for market access) while not having influence on formation of EU regulation unlike the UK, but both norway and Uk have their own currencies instead of the euro

    Denmark: P90D sticker price to increase 180% on Jan 1 2016

    Thought Norway had some special agreement with the EU just like the UK for trade purposes. In the UK i have often bought stuff from various EU countries online as its often cheaper buying in the EU even after accounting for postage charges. I just get charged the extra difference in VAT and...

    Ludicrous with 19s: dumb? or negligible difference?

    Once it was a nail in the rear tyre and could safely pull over on the motorway. The other time it was again the rear tyre at max motorway speed and vehicle jolted and had to grab the wheel harder to keep it in lane and could see pieces of tyre flying off in my side view mirror. Took longer to...

    Denmark: P90D sticker price to increase 180% on Jan 1 2016

    What happens if one buys elsewhere in the EU and then moves car to Denmark, does it get taxed the difference in VAT and registration fee of 180% again. Shocking amount of tax.

    Concerns regarding Tesla's approved partners

    Now I know why my previous Nissan was written off by insurer for what I thought was minor damage when I slid sideward on some at leaves at 20mph and kerbed my front alloy wheel and bent some part around the wheel and it pressed on the door. I was furious they wrote off the car without even...

    Windshield iced over while I'm driving... what did I do wrong?

    Do you use screen wash that has been approved to -20 Celcius or concentrated screen wash for those colder days. It does help. I always envy the Ford cars that have the front windscreen heated wire embedded in the windscreen. They worked best in difficult conditions in my opinion. Too bad they...

    Ludicrous with 19s: dumb? or negligible difference?

    Don't have a Tesla yet but tyre blow outs at motorway speeds are not fun. Have had two blow outs over the years, both at motorway speeds, once when was stuck in between two 18 wheeler trucks and that was not fun as they couldn't be bothered and were blocking me from pulling into the side. I...

    Rear Handle Grabbing Me

    Thanks for the reminder about the voice bug reporting feature, think might have seen something briefly a while back on one of byorn Tesla videos but had forgotten about it.

    Tesla Norway and long waiting times for repair.

    I am in the UK and am looking into the feasibility of buying a Model X but reading about these issues makes one wary. Do you have any links to UK Tesla forums where I can look into this more. Most of the forums I have read are more about USA models. NOT much information for issues in the UK...

    Rear Handle Grabbing Me

    Please suggest to Tesla to update the phone app to include bug reporting feature for the app and also the car separately via the app with feature to include photos and video via the app. That would be an awesome way to document and log the problems officially and they could via their database...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    Thanks for pointing out it was maroon instead of red. It wasn't that obvious to me on my phone as I do most of surfing the web on my phone and wasnt that obvious to me till you pointed it out.

    TrueDelta.com

    Is this data for USA models only or do you accept data for other countries too. Is there any data for EU and UK models. Norway has loads of cars of the EU VERSION and am curious if there are any differences in reliability between USA and UK / EU models. If anyone has any links for reliability of...

    Autopilot 2.0 Not Imminent Based On Production Model X Design Studio [Speculation]

    I thought Tesla was working with Nvidia and Bosch for their autopilot systems. May be I am wrong but am basing my thoughts on these videos and the fact that elon and Nvidia ceo are often together and he also has several Tesla cars. See GTC 2015: NVIDIA DRIVE PX Self-Driving Car Computer and...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    I think irrespective of intrusion the fact shown by testing results is that the sensors on the crash test dummies on the Volvo had half the points of the Tesla for head injury! Lower is better. Similarly significantly lower scores for pelvic injuries. It goes without saying that almost half the...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    Volvo dropped the ball on the new model that was discussed on the link as it's safety was less than the older model but guess those compromises were made by the design team to accommodate other features in the new model. I am no expert in these matters. I am just a layman. Even though I treat...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    Yes I agree with what you say. I hope the actual crash testing data from dummies for model X is better than the S since there is slightly more intrusion on the X compared to the SS in side pole test.

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    The impact force has to go to the car and occupants. If the car gets less of the force then you know where the force really goes to ... The occupant! Tesla can't have their cake and eat it too. For frontal crash they claim more crumple zone in Frunk makes it safer which I agree. But they say the...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    I fully agree that injury to occupants should have a higher rating rather than vehicle damage in any safety assessment. Degree of vehicle intrusion is far less important than actual amount of injury to occupants in vehicle. If you note the model X and model S reveals and that showed the amount...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    Please check all relevant YouTube videos for American Tesla which will show that airbag areas are clearly marked with the word airbag just like UK version. In the UK and EU version think there are 6 airbags but USA version has 8 airbags. Check the UK and USA Tesla websites and see the difference...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    Sorry if I came across like a troll or otherwise. I am interested in Tesla doing well. I am not an owner yet but will buy a Model X in a year or so once initial models sort out any early reliability issues. No I don't own a Tesla yet. Got interested in electric cars after buying a Toyota Hybrid...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    Try buying rear seat console in the UK or EU... You can't buy or even fit it due to rear console needing ISOFIX mounting. Hence not available as accessory to buy on the UK or EU Tesla stores. Tesla UK rep didn't even know such an accessory was available in the USA until I showed it to him on my...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    Please check official EURONCAP testing data yourself and click on the various clickable options on the Eurocon link for child seat restrain system which will prove that tesla car tested by EURONCAP didn't have ISOFIX restraint system. This was confirmed by several people on official forum who...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    I did try suggesting a few things several months ago on the official forum regarding the Knee air bags (lacking in EU & UK VERSIONS) and Bluetooth quality aptx, ISOFIX lacking in EU AND UK etc etc but TESLA moderator deleted thread within as a day. So I don't post there any more as instead of...

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children

    Tesla needs to improve rear seat safety especially for children in my opinion. I have based my opinion of the following facts from reputed road safety reports from Folksam. Tesla is a "recommended Safe car" on this insurer car safety list (they have been involved in vehicle safety...

    Tesla Valet service goes POOF!!!

    I posted twice earlier today on this thread but note those posts have disappeared! Weird moderation when one post just linked this thread to Tesla motors Twitter and the other linked the Tesla UK website mentioning cost of £1 per round trip mile for the Ranger service.

    Tesla Frunk Surprise

    I know this is an old thread but came across this from the TMC twitter post. There is a illuminated switch in the front bottom of the FRUNK which Tesla called the gangster kidnap emergency release switch so that anyone stuffed in the boot forcibly can release the boot open from the inside.

    Why are there only 6 airbags in europe, used to be 8

    Had my test drive today and noticed there was no knee airbag (other airbags have the airbag sign on them), queried this as had remembered seeing on the usa site that it has knee airbags and also mentioned on NHSTA testing. The tesla rep said no knee airbags in the EU as EURONCAP doesnt give...
