    If the car waits until contact has been detected you could have missed important footage that the motion sensor would already have picked up, and I'm pretty sure you could "gently" key a car quickly and without making the car move enough to trigger a contact sensor. Agree it should detect the...

    Most requested features list

    You will always get spam notifications for any motion based security system, it's a fine line where you cut off the detection limits, I would rather have too many alerts and hopefully catch anything bad that did happen to the car than make it less sensitive and possibly miss something. Sentry is...

    Yes, that's why I said for it to be a switchable option, so if you leave your car in a high traffic area you can switch it off. I had no option but to park in a bit of a dodgy area not long ago, an alert to say sentry had been triggered would have been good in this instance.

    As others have already said matrix headlights that actually function as matrix lights, the hardware has been there for long enough now! Option to disable auto door locking, it's a pain when you have to pick passengers up and they're yanking on the door handles because you forgot to unlock the...

    Granny charger

    I ran my previous M3P with the granny charger for 2 years without any real issues but have recently got the Telsa wall charger fitted. Honestly it makes life a whole lot easier. We have 4 hours off peak charging, with the granny charger we had to plug in virtually every night and if we did a...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Pick up mine on Friday, only minor quality issue I can spot so far is the parking sensors appear to be a slightly different shade of white to the rest of the car. Panel gaps and fit and finish inside and out all appear good. Quick opinions compared to my 2020 model. Happy with - Biggest plus...

    New Octopus Switchers / Energy Crisis

    We are lucky to still be on the Go Faster tariff, 14.5p on peak, 5p off peak until the end of January, it works great for us as we're out most of the day and try to do as much as possible in the 4 hour window from 20:30. Is the Go Faster tariff still available, will we likely get renewed onto it...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    I know many of us have delayed delivery until September to get a 72 plate, but there are still a few above with August dates, has anyone collected a Q3 car yet? @JemFP2 @Ruben79 @Mark62 @trouter

    Expired trade in update

    What are you trading in? LR prices seem to have stayed high, P prices seem to have fallen, maybe due to the shorter waiting time for the P.

    Model 3 Rear Sill PPF

    Preparing for my Model 3 delivery, is there PPF fitted as standard to the rear sills? I know it's available to buy as an option but not sure if that's just for cars made before it was fitted as standard. Are there no storage trays fitted as standard now, I see they are also available as an...

    Expired trade in update

    Well I was pleasantly surprised by WBAC, after hearing they try to reduce their valuation for any flaw they can possibly find I was expecting them to go over the car with a fine tooth comb but they really only gave the exterior of the car a minor look over and only reduced their valuation a tiny...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    It's more the principle, Tesla offered a good trade in price for June delivery which they could not achieve (not saying this wasn't out of their control due to Corona, but also not my fault either), a couple of months on an they dropped the trade in price by £5K, and now value their own car at...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Trade in price has been updated and is almost £5K less 😖 Gutted it's lost that much in a few months and 3000 miles, the car is in exactly the same condition. Looks like it will have to be WBAC or cancel the order.
  16. S

    Expired trade in update

    Gutted, trade in price has been renewed and has dropped almost £5K, this means I will now need to find £13K to swap rather than £8K, that's a huge difference in a few months, the car is in exactly the same condition apart from adding 3,000 miles. ☹️ Looks like it will have to be WBAC or cancel...

    Yes bad luck, but I would rather that happened to my trade in and lose a little bit of value than that happen to my brand new car which I would be gutted.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    £1400 I can cope with and I'd be pretty happy with that result, especially as we will get a 72 plate instead of a 22, it will be a few months newer car plus the new price has risen by £1500 in those months, 15% of my Tesla would be over £7500 which would unfortunately mean cancelling the order.

    15% seems a lot in two or three months, are you trading in a Tesla or another manufacturers car?

    Alarm on unlock issue

    Yes, it's very very annoying, it's only appeared a couple of days ago since the last update so I assume it's some bug in the software as the car's been fine for over 2 years. I believe several others have been experiencing the same problem.

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    I was offered £52K in March by Tesla for my car which was way above WBAC at that time, noticed WBAC was up to almost £50K last week. I am awaiting my revised trade value in from Tesla for delivery at the start of September, I'm hoping the WBAC price going up will mean the Tesla offer will still...

    Just noticed mine has updated to 12th - 26th August as well, was hoping for it to be start of September for a 72 plate. We'll likely get a trade in value confirmation soon going by these dates.

    Naughty Tesla WWYD?

    I was fined £60 by police for driving a vehicle without an MOT, it was a company owned car and as such I just assumed it was legal to be on the road, never even thought to check, although it was not so easy to do so back then as there was no online ability. The police knew I was unaware it had...

    I think I will end up in the same situation but my order will not be here till next quarter so we'll see how it ends up, They must see that taking a £4K loss for the sake of four days is taking the piss though.

    Unfortunately that's what I think will happen.

If the trade...

    Trade in expired today, have updated my mileage, hopefully wont be too different from the last quote which was very good however I'm a bit wary there will be a fair drop in value. Anyone got a revised trade in price recently?

    Model 3 should add around 45mph on 3 phase 11Kw (that's roughly what I get on the local council charger anyway), normal single phase 7.4Kw around 30mph

    Navigation caused me to get a fine

    Satnav's etc, are only driver aids, it's still up to the driver to be aware of the road signs. I would say you have no chance challenging the PCN by blaming the car, only hope is if the signage was missing, inadequate, damaged, etc.

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Agreed, I would of gone for that if it was an option, I like MSM but last two cars were that colour so I fancied a change. I do think Tesla needs to refresh the colour line up a bit, all options are still exactly the same as the time I ordered in January 2020

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Some colour stats from the 32 orders so far; Most popular combination is silver with black interior with 7orders (22%). Orders are well balanced between the colours, least common is red with 5 orders (not surprising as its most expensive), most common silver with 8 orders. 62.5% chose black...

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    This is really a industry wide issue affecting more than Tesla though due to the long delivery times on many marques especially EV's, many are quoting 12 months plus for delivery. It would be interesting to hear how other more traditional car makers such as BMW/Audi are dealing with it, cant be...

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    We have three options 3: Cancel order Which is what I will be doing and requesting a refund of my deposit, the good trade in price was the only reason I had to change as I'm still happy enough with my 2020 car. Tesla won't care as there are plenty others who will snap it up, but it would give...

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    My thoughts are used prices are too close to new hence must be hard to sell unless someone really doesn't want to wait for delivery, Pre refresh 2020P with higher miles than mine is listed £58K, only £3K less than a new one with 2 years more warranty and all the 2021 and 2022 upgrades, albeit it...

    Trade in values seem high again ?

    Not good and I am expecting the worse for my trade in when it expires at the end of the month.

If there is a bumper delivery next quarter to catch...

    Benefits to Delayed Delivery

    Yes it can be done cheaper by using a flip up display such as the previous Mazda 3 for example. It works but lacks the seamless premium feel of having it directly on the windscreen.

    Benefits to Delayed Delivery

    You need a different windscreen for a HUD, it has a polarising layer to reflect the image.

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    Can't really blame the drivers, Tesla opened up the network to all and they are paying for their charge. Tesla were well aware of this before they started the trials, to me it would of made sense to fit longer cables to all trial locations before opening them, they're going to have to do...
