    Some questions after 2 months ownership

    Hi All, So I'm approaching the 2 months mark of ownership and I've actually been really pleased with my MiC SR+... I even had a really positive Tesla Service Centre experience last week so that was great! However, I still have some (basic) questions which I'm sure the more experienced owners...

    Do you need Premium connectivity for remote access?

    My premium connectivity trial runs out in 2 days and I didn’t have any intention in renewing (will just use my phone as a hotspot) but then I thought… will I lose the remote access/monitoring via the phone without premium connectivity? I know it should work when at home as the car is connected...

    Well, I've had the most disastrous first wash of my MR this weekend... long story, short; I pressure washed my car yesterday and finished with AytoGlym Polar Seal... the problem is I started packing things away and I took too long to come back and dry the car and by the time I returned the car...

    9 Months after I rejected a M3P, my first weekend with MIC SR+...

    So I collected my MIC SR+ from Bham NEC on Friday and spent my first weekend with our new M3 so wanted to document some takeaways as I always found the personal experience useful when I was debating the purchase. First, some background... I have previously ordered a M3 Performance (roughly 9...

    UMC/3-Pin charger tripping fuse board...

    Just collected my SR+ (Separate post about that experience incoming!) - however, just got home and tried to charge using the UMC/3-Pin charger.

    Underside of Trunk Paint Question

    Just curious if others have a fully painted underside of the trunk (under and in-between the honeycomb design) or do you see areas unpainted (the yellow/gold colour that you can see under the parcel shelf)?

    So.... I rejected my collection car today :(

    TL;DR at the end... Woke up today feeling like Xmas morning with a collection planned at Bham. Everything went smoothly and I have to say the staff onsite were all incredibly welcoming, friendly and professional - very impressed by all the staff I talked to today. At first glance, my M3P...

    M3P owners using summer tyres in Winter

    Just curious if any 19/69 plate M3 performance owners braved last winter on the stock summer tyres? The guidance seems to be tyres should be swapped out but did anyone not do that when our roads are iced and temperature drops to freezing?

    Pre-Purchase Questions

    I'm pulling the trigger in the next couple of weeks and had a random assortment of questions I figured the TMC community can help answer (Specifically, would be great to hear from UK owners) - I'm sure these have been answered on other separate threads in the past but who has time to use a...

    18" Aero vs 20" Performance: Ride Quality, comfort, noise etc

    Hello all, I've been set on purchasing a M3P (mainly for the better looking wheels and that 3.1s 0-6 time!) but the more YouTube reviews I watch, the more it seems that the 20" rims plus lowered ride height really impact comfort, especially on our battered UK roads. I test drove the M3P and...

    Hello All, Longtime lurker, first time poster :) I'm looking to place my M3P order at the end of the month, but I'm torn on what colour combination to go for, especially now that the only option for wheels are the Grey/Dark ones.
