    The Pub - OT posts and discussions

    I own a Tesla by choice so if I point out what I don't like about it I see no problem in that. I certainly don't have the time or desire to purchase something just for the sake of criticising it. I genuinely like the car and company and would like to see them do excellently. I think they have...

    The Pub - OT posts and discussions

    Wow! It looks good. Probably too expensive to be a Model 3 rival but I wonder how Tesla will fare once competition heats up. They have first mover advantage for a lot of things but I hope they figure out their body build issues soon because the other will eventually catch up with the tech etc.

    4WD doesn't mean you're invincible

    All season should fare ok in these conditions. I lived in conditions much worse than this when younger and couldn't afford two sets of tyres so I drove my Honda civic with all seasons all year round and never had any issues. Driving technique and common sense still required. Not sure how the...

    4WD doesn't mean you're invincible

    Just saw another video of right after this where another guy comes right after the tesla and slides down as well. No attempt by the guy to warn them but just keeps recording and saying they can't stop.

    4WD doesn't mean you're invincible

    Very good education there. I also spent many years in my youth in a Honda Civic in the snow. Can't say how grateful I am although I almost never have need of the skill now.

    4WD doesn't mean you're invincible

    Yes, brakes are the enemy in a situation like this. Stirring and trying to control using the accelerator is what he needed but like you say without experience doing it you'd never think of it.

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    Thanks for your help Dave, all sorted now. I'll post what the issue was here in case someone else runs into this. I had to edit this string " sudo /usr/local/bin/docker-compose exec....." as it turns out for some reason my docker-compose is not installed there but in /usr/bin/docker-compose...

    This is what I get if I run the script exactly as you've typed it. Can't find a suitable configuration file in this directory or any parent. Are you in the right directory? Supported filenames: docker-compose.yml, docker-compose.yaml

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    Thank you @DaveW. It would have been very sad to loose all of that data. 2 days before my laptop had something spilled in it and is gone for repairs. My Home-Assistant and Unifi controller backups are stored locally on there so it's either wait to get the data or start afresh. :( Anyway yes...

    Had a failed sd card on my Pi yesterday. Well it didn't fail but got corrupted due to improper shut downs and I decided to just start from scratch. I've reinstalled Teslamate and thanks to @DaveW I had my automated backups going to google drive and have been able to restore my data. I'm now...

    Colmo ceramic key ring

    You don't need cell service to unlock your car if you're within Bluetooth range of the car and have the phone set up as a key. Regarding taping using your phone as an nfc 'card' I was able to get it to work on my 3 but others have reported not being able to do so. I'm not sure if it's the same...

    I'm in month 4 and while I don't check it as frequently as when I first set it up I still do check it and usually when I have a question I want resolved. I started out on vultr and moved to a pi mainly because I was being cheap and partially because at the time I was setting up a lot of online...

    Model 3 is getting pedestrian warning noises (AVAS)?

    September 2020, 48.30 and don't have it either. I thought it was a sarcastic post or something isn't adding up.

    Contact From Tesla

    Like you, we ordered ours thorough the NHS via Knowles. Expect most of your contact to come from Tesla. Have Knowles giving you your RN number yet? The date giving you was most likely an estimate as others have said. As suggested, see if you can get your RN number either from Knowles or from...

    Drive History

    I went the other route. Went with Teslamate as I didn't want another subscription service. Edit to add: Very happy with it.

    Tesla Service Centres - Is this normal?

    I've had different service. Every time I've booked my car in I get a call before the day to go through the issues and re-confirm the problem. Only ever had 3 so not a lot but they have been very good at keeping me informed including times where the item needed hadn't arrived and wanted to know...

    Hansshow Tesla Smart Ring - Not great!

    I don't have a Hannshow one but assume they are mostly similar and mine works all the time with no issues. I've had it on for 3 months and never take it off. I mostly use my phone but whenever I've gone to use the ring for whatever reason it has worked immediately without having to fumble...

    Peak Time Alps Road Trip - Charger queues?

    You lot are definitely braver than I am. I couldn't do the 14hrs with a 6 and a 2.5 yr old. I can't even imagine it. I wouldn't count on Easter being more quiet this year. We're also booked to go Easter but based on the fact that Christmas has been cancelled and Feb is not guaranteed we know...

    Home charger in block of flats?

    We have something similar. There used to be a time when developers built and handed over to residents to manage but off late (last 10 yrs) they have seen the leasehold as a money making scheme and hold on to it to sell later on or continue to make money off the ground rent. In our development...

    Home charger in block of flats?

    I suspect regs would soon make it mandatory for all new builds to have them and for those without to allow residents install. How that plays out will depend as some management companies will see this as another money making venture and may charge ridiculous amounts. It's a tricky situation...

    Home charger in block of flats?

    Impressive. I wish I had the option of this. I would have considered this for a number of reasons but mainly: -We're at the mercy of whatever it is decided we pay for electricity. It's not a problem at the moment but being in full control would be great. -Having fibre optic run would allow...

    Home charger in block of flats?

    Our building is about 4 yrs old and the developer put several chargers in when it was being built. I recently had one put at my parking space and the management company makes us pay for the installation as well as a fee for use of electricity. It is very likely that it shouldn't be too much...

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    I believe once you've changed it and go to the grafana instance of your teslamate it would prompt you for your new password. I'm no expert and sure someone will chime in if I'm wrong.

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    Got it fixed and working as well. All good here.
  26. E

    TeslaMate [megathread]

    I just updated my teslamate and now getting the same as you. Grafana is still showing as connected. I will do a hard reboot of the car before my drive later today. Hoping it gets resolved before school run.

    What would/will you pay for heated steering wheel?

    £0. Even with without a preheated cabin I wouldn't pay extra for it. They'd do well to just add it in the cost of the premium package or take it out all together.

    Turn on wireless using voice command

    As mentioned above, wifi will turn off once you shift into drive. Even if you never leave the car if you go to park and back to drive it goes off. My LTE wasn't working for about 2 months and I got into the habit of going into drive, then turning on my wifi immediately before setting off...

    M3 won't remember a name given to a Key card

    I only ever tried renaming the ring I had and it never kept the name. I tried after the last update and it seemed to work. The only thing I did different was use just one word without a space. Not sure if that made a difference or if it had just been fixed. Saying that, I haven't checked it in...

    How NOT to park your EV

    I've had exactly this happen to me in the M3 (except I didn't floor it) I had just parked but forgot to put the car in park, my daughter was in her car seat right behind me and I reached around to see what she was upset about when I felt like the car was moving slowly. Turned around just in...

    Model 3 isofix, do you use inserts, or just squeeze between the cushions

    I have to car seats permanently in the back with seat protectors on. 2 months in and I've checked a few times with no indentations at all present. Might be too early to tell but so far so good. My little one has also thrown up about 3 times in the back and the protectors have helped act as a...

    Model 3 isofix, do you use inserts, or just squeeze between the cushions

    I've tried having the isofix attached with and without the inserts and I much prefer with. It makes it much easier to attach the car seat with it in place. Like others I also feel it would help protect the seat from damage.

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    Someone posted on here that they had received in writing from Tesla confirmation that it would continue for Lease customers. I'm going into month 3 and it's still going. Have SR+ so should have run out.

    eCall emergency call system needs service

    After my update to the most recent software version I also had it pup up and disappear quite quickly. I had just pulled out my phone to take a picture and it went off. Will keep an eye out.

    [UK] 2020.44.x

    The update to being able to set cruise to current speed and the percentage over makes this my most useful since getting the car in September. I've set a 10% offset for the speed limit and then-put the setting to current speed when TACC is engaged so I can just hold the stock down for one...

    Leasing Model 3 via Salary sacrifice

    Yes but that's different to breaching your annual allowance which would incur an immediate tax bill. Correct. You can opt to have the payment taken from your pension if over than £2000 but just easier to not have to deal with that.
  37. E

    Leasing Model 3 via Salary sacrifice

    You are right, the NHS pension is probably the most amazing you can find but... The opt out rate is likely to drop now that the max has been adjusted. Same reason there were early retires. If you hit the cap you get a huge bill from HMRC and it's not particularly straightforward to calculate.

    Brilliant price. Now wish we had gone for the LR.

    Leasing Model 3 via Salary sacrifice

    With Knowles as well. SR+ 10k miles including insurance, tires, maintenance. About £312 after tax. (40% bracket)

    Tesla's removing low regen option on new cars

    I must be doing something wrong. I seem to use my breaks more often than most and my regen is set to standard. :confused:

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    Yes we're with Knowles through the NHS. Was frustrating dealing with them at the begining but worked it out. When did you order? (Based on your given delivery date it looks like your order was placed mid September).

    Anyone fitted a charge port light?

    Yes the charge port leaves almost no room underneath it when closed. I found this out as I tried sticking an all weather NFC tag which is about as thick as a coin underneath it and it wouldn't shut properly. I've never had need for a light so haven't thought about it until I saw this thread...

    Never drive away without the key card!

    I have one as well and it's the most convenient key/card I've ever used (If you already wear a ring). My phone is my primary key but has not worked a few times. I don't spend any time trying to figure it out. Sometimes I just walk out to get something and my phone isn't on me. I use it to...

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    If you're leasing direct from Tesla I believe you have access to everything. From most if not all the other leasing companies, no. You don't have access to upgrades or subscriptions. My car doesn't show in my account. The app and full functionality are available but that's different from...

    Key card not needed by Tesla SC

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    That's good to know. As the rear seats almost always have booster seats in them I won't be paying for that upgrade. TBH the only upgrades I would have considered would be the ambient and music. Music isn't software regulated and ambient I don't believe the option to upgrade exists so I'm happy...

    9V/10W USB A booster for wireless charging

    Edited my post before I saw your reply. That one should work. I had looked into getting that originally when I was considering a RPi instead of a hard drive.

    Key card not needed by Tesla SC

    Well I dropped off at 8:50am and haven't received a call. It would make sense that they don't need the card considering they can unlock and remote start it if you needed them to. They've probably never really needed it but just ask for it so we feel safer. Maybe they're past the pretence now. :D

    9V/10W USB A booster for wireless charging

    Have just looked through and I'm not sure it does either. This one will. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01AXZUMOK/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_8yRMFb1AX2Y3M
