    AeroBon Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler for Model S

    I will just add, I called Direct Line today to declare my modifications. No change for adding Arachnid Alloys, but premium increase of £20, plus £200 increase on mandatory excess because of the spoiler. Unreal, but is what it is I guess.

    Soft Reboot Losing ALL Settings

    Been having some LTE issues this week and then MCU crashed. So I did a soft reboot (hold down both scroll wheels until MCU turns black), and ALL of my settings, profiles, etc have gone. I tried this a few times as LTE still not working, and it does the same thing each time. Previously this never...

    Thank you Roadside Assistance

    Nice tip. Maybe also worth installing the app on another device that you control (say iPad at home or wifes phone) so you can remote unlock with that also to save making a call?

    Electric Tariffs

    As mention in other posts, I am happy with Octopus Energy Go Tariff. Its E4 vs E7. If of interest I can share my referral code (both get £50 credit).

    V9 and spotify

    Any of you guys have a personal premium Spotify account? I have been trying to sign in on my Tesla but it doesnt work, I even tried a factory reset but no change. I have read about people not being able to sign in with the Tesla account, but not this specific issue.

    AeroBon Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler for Model S

    Applies with supplied 3M tape, and yup looks flush. I added some heat to make things abit more flexible then alot of weights to hold it all nicely in place :)

    AeroBon Carbon Fiber Rear Spoiler for Model S

    I thought I would share some info on the AeroBon Carbon Fiber spoiler for anyone thinking of getting a spoiler for their Model S. I was looking for one for my newly aquired Tesla Model S, but Tesla want over £1000 for theirs, and I don't like them that much :) I found the AeroBon spoilers...

    2019.4.3

    Sorry to thread high jack, but I also cant login to Spotify so just have to use the Tesla account. What voice commands can be used to play specific music from spotify, vs it just displaying artist on screen then having to click etc, as that seems to defeat using the voice command.

    Tesla Powerwall 2 economics- any real data?

    This makes sense, as I heard the new gateway which will support backup will be about £800 or so.

    Tesla Powerwall 2 economics- any real data?

    The gateway 2 which is due for release this year in the UK has the backup capability to isolate the house from the grid. These are just becoming available in Australia.

    Odd velcro under centre console

    Car is used, but via a dealers so I can't ask the previous owner. Its odd as its such a tight gap I don't see what could possibly attach there.

    Odd velcro under centre console

    Not really alot else to take a picture of. Its a square piece of velcro under the centre console tray on a Tesla Model S

    Odd velcro under centre console

    Hi all, I have recently got my Tesla Model S, and noticed this odd bit of velcro. Anyone know what its for?

    Best energy tariffs

    Only had my Tesla a few days, but I do find it odd that you can schedule charging start, but not schedule charging stop within the car. I know you can do this artificially but altering the charge percentage, but would nice to say charge from time A to time B.

    V9 and spotify

    its not actually that noticeable, if I hadn't read lot of info on the forums I don't think I would have spotted it. I only have a few quirks noted since collecting it, other than that all good so far :)

    V9 and spotify

    Good to know, as my pre-owned Model S also has the yellow banding, so was going to add it to a list for when booking in for warranty work.

    V9 and spotify

    I only just got my Tesla, but have noticed odd Spotify behaviour. When I get back in the car, it sets the next track to play as one of the "romantic" ones from the fireplace easter egg thing ... its very random. Anyone else had this? @MagicMagicD isnt the yellow banded MCU a warranty swap out?

    Dual Motor Worth the Premium?

    From the testing I did the AWD is deffo significantly more sure footed in the damp and wet, but I decided to go RWD anyway as never had issues with my BMW's as I just drive sensibly, and went with a better spec vs the additional motor.

    Do you regret buying a RWD Model S?

    Best energy tariffs

    The GO Tariff is a 12 month fixed tariff. I moved to the GO Tariff min Jan, so it will change to the new version in mid Jan 2020. This is elec only, gas is not impacted by the Go Tariff.

    Tesla Powerwall 2 economics- any real data?

    This is not currently available with the Powerwall 2 in the UK, we need the updated gateway which will enable the islanding of the house so it can be used during a power outage. This is supposed to be out this year, but the price seems to be going up, last I read was its about £800 plus fitting...

    Best energy tariffs

    I don't believe its discontinued, it just not well advertised. When you sign up to Octopus then you can "move" to the Go Tariff once you got the new smart meter installed. Thats how it worked for me earlier this year.

    Best energy tariffs

    The Octopus Go Tariff is 5p per kWh off peak, I use this time to charge my Powerwall in the winter months. The peak rate is 13.72p kWh which is also pretty decent.

    Data shenanigans in the UK this morning?

    Anyone know where the mobile / cell antenna is. I never seem to get more than 2 bars LTE signal.

    Best for insurance?

    I just got my Tesla Model S, and Direct Line were best for me. They denied giving out the little faraday pouches anymore, but they did give some extra discount for having Auto Pilot.

    Tesla Powerwall 2 economics- any real data?

    Big fan of my Tesla Powerwall 2. I do monthly updates on my YouTube channel of my Solar setup and battery performance. Going to be interesting now I am adding the Model S to the mix. Spectrum Geeks

    I was with Out Fox The Market before they went all stupid. I have now been with Octopus Energy since the beginning of the year, and all good service so far, and also now using their Economy 4 tariff. I assume its only Tesla Referrals that cant be posted? Moderator comment - no referral codes...

    Do you regret buying a RWD Model S?

    Thanks to everyone. I picked up my 2017 RWD 75 Model S yesterday and so far so good. It had an early September build date, and as the dashcam feature works I assume I have HW2.5

    Factory Reset Option?

    Thanks. I assume there is no reason NOT to do this?

    Factory Reset Option?

    I did some searching but couldnt find anything, but sorry if this is a duplicate. I am picking up a 2nd Hand Tesla tomorrow from a non Tesla dealer. Wondering if there is a way to factory reset the car to get rid of any previous owner presets, like seat setting, GPS suspension adjustments, etc...

    Great thanks very much for sharing. Makes it easier to compare with the 21" Turbines as to what I should go for.

    Pics of Midnight Silver Model S with Arachnid Wheels?

    Morning all I have had a look through various forum posts but didn't find any pics of a Midnight Silver Model S with Arachnids, so wondering if anyone has any they can post? I have seen some that are carbon fibre dipped (assume this is non standard) and wondering what they might look like.

    Do you regret buying a RWD Model S?

    Went for a November 2017 Model S in Midnight Silver with 19" alloys (I really wanted 21's but will get them later). Its got AP2 enabled, pano roof, latest revision rear seats, sub zero pack, premium sound, air suspension, carbon interior. I think thats the important things. Should collect in a...

    Model S Rear Seats - Flat Bench or Raised Middle?

    In my ongoing search for a used Tesla, I notice that in the later version (post Nov 17 I think) they changed the layout of the rear bench seat. Its moved from what I describe as a flat bench seat, to a more twin bucket with raised centre seat. So wondered from those who have / live with these...

    Do you regret buying a RWD Model S?

    No plans for the performance model. 75 kWh battery is perfect for my needs.

    Do you regret buying a RWD Model S?

    Cheers for feedback so far all. I plan to get the facelift version, so my understanding is the frunk is the same size RWD and AWD on these version, so no advantage there. I appreciate the AWD is slightly faster and slightly better range, but I don't do alot of miles, and sure you might drove it...

    Do you regret buying a RWD Model S?
