    Some questions after 2 months ownership

    Ok, so I did some testing on this yesterday... sending messages worked when I'm in Park and connected to WiFi (parked on my drive, connected to home WiFi). Once I drive away, I can receive messages, but not send/reply. So, it stands to reason that if I connect to my mobile hotspot whilst...

    I'm running the latest 14.7.1 update :confused:

    Some questions after 2 months ownership

    Thanks, all - some very useful info. So, another question... my iPhone connects to the car via Bluetooth and I get the onscreen notification when somebody sends me a text message... however, following the onscreen instructions to reply (press the left steering wheel button once etc) results in...

    Some questions after 2 months ownership

    On this point, can I ask where you eventually had your tyre(s) replaced? Was it a local garage or a national Kwikfit type place? And did they have the correct "pucks" for raiding the M3 Also, does changing tyres require any sort of recalibration for regen braking? Or am I overthinking it?

    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?

    Thanks, both, that makes sense!

    Do you need Premium connectivity for remote access?

    Ok, this is driving me batty... I get that as soon as you put the car into D, it turns Wifi off, and you have to manually click on the LTE icon and turn Wifi On (and I also know this will be updated in the next software update as pointed out above)... but here's the issue... Even though I have...

    Do you need Premium connectivity for remote access?

    Is that live or due soon? Thanks

    Do you need Premium connectivity for remote access?

    Yes, this is incredibly annoying... however, I'm going to try and stick with using my phone as a hotspot for a couple of reasons: 1. I can actually access UK content as premium connectivity always thinks I'm in the Netherlands (due to Tesla's selected partner) 2. Audio via Bluetooth sounds far...

    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...

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Thanks so much, really helpful. Thanks also for the kind offer, but I'll order a bottle and see how I get on. 👍

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Yeah, but how? Do you mean to do another wash? (I don’t have any white vinegar or the spot removal spray suggested above. It’s mainly the bonnet, just incredibly stubborn and not budging 😖

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    The issue is I recall reading other forum threads where going to one of the car hand washes resulted in swirls and scratches due to the amount of cars being washed with the same mitts etc so I thought I would do it myself at home… alas, I made it worse for myself 😖

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Can I ask which method you used to remove them?

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Thanks, I needed to read the last part to clam myself down. I did retry the polar seal on a small area of the boot lid but no joy… I’m leaning towards just putting it to the back of my mind and hoping it comes out in the next wash in a months time.

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    Thanks everyone… I really think this is down to the polar seal drying too quickly before I got back to properly dry the car… completely my fault on all fronts. :-( There’s been mention of using a clay bar or the meguiars water spot removal… which would you recommend I try first? If it is the...

    Can't remove water spots from paintwork

    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...

    Can people with a M3 please do a test for me

    I posted in another thread that my MIC 2021 SR+ like to make this noise randomly after short drives (other times its completely silent)

    Noise when sitting in car

    Not related to the OP, but for at least 2 hours *after* a short journey (5 miles approx) my M3 is still making this noise (video attached) is this the heat pump? And if so, what is it doing 2-3 hours after the journey? Surely the power needed to run it is wasting more energy than its saving...

    Sun cream on arm rest …. Argh!!

    Thanks all… a wet wipe helped but you can still see the circle where it was, so I’ll try the hand santiser tip. Its one of those days… I proceeded to wash my car and now it’s covered in horrid water spots because I made the bone head decision to wash under direct sunlight with (our known) hard...

    Sun cream on arm rest …. Argh!!

    With the gorgeous weather today, my arms had sun cream applied, and after a drive I realised I’d been resting my arm in the arm rest and there’s a cloudy white stain it! ******* typical! in a panic I tried rubbing it off with tissue but it’s just left a cloudy blotch… any tips on how to remove? :(

    Noise when sitting in car

    I noticed that exact same noise when I collected my car 3 weeks ago, but since I'd put in a Supercharger as my destination on the navigation, I assumed it was associated with the pre-conditioning of the battery. However, it continued to make it even after I left the supercharger and lasted for...

    Home Charge Points Discussion and Suggestions [megathread]

    Moderator comment - posts merged from "Tesla Home Wall Charger... Recommend or Avoid?" Looking at options for installing a Home Charger, but it seems like most of the popular choices (Pod-point, EO etc) all require you to use their installers (I have managed to find a great local electrician so...

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

    Just wanted to post a quick update on this in case it helps anyone else... Tesla actually sent me a replacement UMC (They called me about a separate issue, so I mentioned the trouble I was having and they arranged for a replacement UMC) - however, the same issue occurred: plugging it into my M3...

    TesFlix.net

    I had the same issue - the workaround is to log into Plex.Tv with your Google Account *when* you are connected to your home Wifi... once logged in, it should automatically log you into YouTube etc and also sets the region for certain streaming services to the UK. iPlayer and a few others...

    Hi All, Been pretty excited to finally get my M3 SR+ so went ahead and created my own Web App portal (I know there's a few of these available now, but I had some time to kill :p) Please check it out at TesFlix.net and let me know if you spot any bugs/issues or if I've missed any channels...

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

    Thanks, everyone. I've attached a picture of the fuse board and highlighted the RCD that is tripping. Fingers crossed I have an electrician scheduled to visit end of this week (but he's cancelled before so...)

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

    Have tried the UMC at a few different plugs at my house, and switched off as many other appliances as I can, but it's still tripping the fuse board. Works fine tested at both my neighbours.... ☹️ Trying to get hold of an electrician not going well either. SIgh....

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

    So, a couple more questions for the more seasoned owners... 1. When I turn the wheel at low speeds (parking for example) I can hear (for lack of a better phrase) a "hydraulics" sound - is this normal? 2. When you pull up and put the car into Park, is there any way to let the car know you're...

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

    I do have the mudflaps, but this was definitely related to the brake - it almost felt like when ABS is activated and you can feel it through the pedal... only it was a heavy clunk and a jerk forward by the car, as if it's fighting between putting the brakes on or moving forward.

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

    Ahh, that's reassuring! Very strange that the Tesla employee told me it's a "known issue" with the MIC models and advised I book it in with the service centre! ... but then again, I'm sure most of them make it up on the spot... the other 2-3 cars I checked at collection were all the same too.

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

    I've posted the difference between the 2 sides to demonstrate the issue - hopefully, this helps explain better!

    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...

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

    Thanks, very informative - the extension leads I purchased from Tough Leads has an inline RCD, so wouldn't that have prevented the main house board from tripping? (Sorry, I'm useless with stuff like this) Thanks - I tried the UMC on 3 different plugs and it tripped every time... so I guess I...

    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. As soon as the light turns blue and about to start drawing power, my house fuse board trips. Have tried this using a Tough Leads extension lead and also...

    Insurance in limited companies name

    Just as an update, I called Tesla this morning and they put a note on file to register in my name rather than in my company name - the guy on the phone said they have been getting this request a lot recently as more insurers have been shying away from insuring Teslas purchased through a LTD...

    Insurance in limited companies name

    Thanks for all the replies above, I’ll try and contact Tesla and see if I can get the car registered in my name.

    Insurance in limited companies name

    At what point did you request this, and how? (ie. In-person, email etc) - I'm really curious as I'm due to collect next week!

    Insurance in limited companies name

    I'm having a nightmare obtaining quotes at the moment - neither DL nor Churchill will offer insurance if you select "company" as legal owner during the quote! I even called DL and although the advisor couldn't comment on the specifics, he suggested it's because I'm not the "legal owner", but...

    Autopilot - Explanation needed

    What do you mean by "Models"? Do you mean differences between SR+, LR and Performance? If so, then there are no differences... Autopilot is the same across all 3, as is FSD. If you mean between Models as in "S", "3", "X" etc, then again, on all cars since 2019/20, the features is the same.

    Why I returned the Performance M3 and ordered a Long Range, last week.

    Informative post OP, and I'm in the same train of thought at the moment... I rejected my M3P due to damage inside and out and ultimately ended up cancelling the order altogether. However, 3 weeks on, I still haven't had the refund, so I contacted the Sales team yesterday and asked if I could...

    Model 3 colour choice - I’m indecisive!

    Not trying to revive my old thread, but I would avoid Black.... From the very start, I had my heart set on Black after seeing it in person and loving that stealth look. But both Model 3s I ended up rejecting had massive paint defects and both times, 2 different Tesla technicians told me that...
