    Rhythmic vibration at speeds above 80mph

    The frequency of the on/off vibration varies with speed (higher the faster you go) and almost becomes a permanent vibration at 100+. It’s not heavy and quite mild. I’ll check at my local tyre shop when I’m back in the UK for alignment or imbalance in the tyres.

    Rhythmic vibration at speeds above 80mph

    I’m out in Europe for the week and it was something I noticed earlier in the year. At speeds above 80mph there is a rhythmic vibration in the car which increases with speed. It’s about 1-2 seconds of mild vibration, then no vibration for a similar period. At around 90-100mph the vibration is...

    Weird buzzing noise when above 40mph

    I’ve got the same noise in my MX (2019). Without sounding too precise I used to have exactly the same noise in my previous car which I found out was a bunch of vibrating pens and biros with a worn out elastic band holding them together. I don’t have these pens in the MX :( so I don’t know where...

    [UK] Premium Connectivity Progress - pre mid July 2019 orders

    Good to know! In that case I won't hold my hopes up. At least they haven't taken away my free supercharging :)

    [UK] Premium Connectivity Progress - pre mid July 2019 orders

    TBH it's not a big deal and as others have mentioned that Spotify was a little patchy and I rarely used the satellite view. The only thing that I'm not sure about is the real-time traffic and if premium connectivity will re-route based on bad traffic. It's only £10/month...as is my Netflix...

    [UK] Premium Connectivity Progress - pre mid July 2019 orders

    I get your point regarding what was included at point of order, but my argument would be the car came with premium connectivity and there is no mention of it being only limited to a year on the order.

    [UK] Premium Connectivity Progress - pre mid July 2019 orders

    I don't have these details as it was an inventory car, only the invoice. The spec attached is not my car but was from a list of cars that were given as an option - these were the details that I only ever saw and they are mirrored on my invoice.

    [UK] Premium Connectivity Progress - pre mid July 2019 orders

    Ok...but there is still no mention of 1 year premium connectivity on my invoice/order.

    [UK] Premium Connectivity Progress - pre mid July 2019 orders

    Model X. There is nothing on my invoice that says 1 year premium connectivity only that "premium upgrades package" is included. (edit) I've fired off an email to [email protected] to see what they say. Previous attempts have always been via the Tesla website with no response...

    [UK] Premium Connectivity Progress - pre mid July 2019 orders

    So I've just come back from an SC after a few issues and raised the premium connectivity removal from my car (purchased 22nd May 2019) and was told that it has been like this since 2018 :rolleyes: They even sent me a screenshot from somewhere. I've raised two "complaints" to Tesla, both of...

    Rear bike rack (Model 3 / SUV )

    Shame as Halfords currently have the Thule Xpress for the tow hitch for £54.99. Took it out this weekend with a couple of bikes and works great. Downside is that you need to remove bikes before the boot can be opened - but I’m guessing this is the case with most bike racks.

    Is Tesla Service still running?

    I picked mine up from the Drayton service centre yesterday for a windscreen replacement so I presume everything is still ok. They did mention they were running with reduced staff and to be patient with paperwork and fetching the keys/car.

    Luxury Car Tax RIP - Budget 2020

    Even if you did you could just leave it on the drive, apply for SORN and register it 5 days later. The question is how do you get it home.

    Airport Parking - Purple Parking

    +1 valet mode plus whenever I’ve left my car with a drop off service I normally find there are plenty of other cars they’d rather joyride with. I do recall one time I left a car at Gatwick i tracked it sitting at a body workshop nearby. My heart sank but then realised when I picked it up the...

    Trip to the Alps

    There were a number of public charge points in Morzine and Les Gets that you could get an overnight charge at but we were lucky enough to have a driveway/parking spot beside the chalet to run a cable out of the bathroom window to top up to 100%. The worst bit of the journey for us was making...

    Anyone in the alps?

    It was a warm week so the snow was a bit slushy down at Les Gets and Morzine town level. Avoriaz was better as was most of the pistes at higher altitudes. It did dump a load mid-week which made a huge difference and the forecast does look good for next week. You’ll probably need some suitable...

    Trip to the Alps

    We’re just on our way back from a week in Morzine and staying just outside Reims. Our itinerary was a 12:30pm tunnel crossing and then a stay outside Dijon (about 7-8 hours drive from Calais including stops for charging). Then the following morning a 2-3 hour drive to le mountains (including a...

    Anyone in the alps?

    It’s been a warm week so disappointed the winter tyres got no use. I guess up in Avoriaz it was a different story. So far so good with the charging and just finished topping up with an extension cable to the car. Only a 1000km back home!

    Anyone in the alps?

    We followed a black MX down to the alps this week and just noticed it parked up at a local Carrefour in Morzine. Anyone here?

    Another SC cockup - any suggestions for painless remedy?

    Get some RainX and apply to the windscreen first just in case you get caught out in the rain. Hopefully they’ll expedite the issue given the seriousness of the problem.

    Best public EV charger pass for France?

    I should add that on the chargemap map you can see what cards will work on charge points. NewMotion (Shell) seem to be pretty widely accepted. How did you go about ordering one? I think more cards the better.

    Third party charging in France

    I’d hope so. I’ve got a spare EVSE that so far has worked with Tesla, Leaf, i3 so I presume the Tesla UMC will work with any car with a type2 port.

    Third party charging in France

    I’m not sure if it’s been mentioned before but the gen2 UMC ignores polarity on the Neutral and Live pins so no need for a polarity switcher cable.

    Cracked rear glass

    Same happened to my front windscreen on an MX. Taking it to SC in March for them to advise - I’ll probably go to auto glass for advice as it shows no damage from the outside and I cannot feel any crack.

    Model S + Washing machine?

    And a ‘96 Nissan Micra, to boot.

    TeslaCam Questions

    Did you have sentry mode active before you left the car? If so it should save everything in one of the folders following a sentry event.

    Borrow some jack pads?

    Amazon seems to be flooded with pads for Model 3. I’ll have to check the dimensions of the positioning hole to see if it is MX compatible. I’m aware that they are nothing special, just don’t want the tyre shop to damage the battery. Maybe I’ll just get some pucks and help out.

    Borrow some jack pads?

    I’ve ordered some jack pads but I don’t think they’ll be here for Christmas and I want to swap the tyres out for some winter ones before Christmas travelling. Does anyone have some that I could borrow to fit a model X- I’m based in High Barnet (could meet south mimms) If not I’ll just buy some...

    I've heard about one pedal driving but cannot find it anywhere in the settings on my MX with 2019.36.2.4 I've only got standard/low for regen and a creep toggle button.

    MX windscreen crack

    Yesterday I noticed a small crack on the corner of the front windscreen. The car hasn’t been out for a few days and there is no visible external damage. I can’t feel the crack on the outside and it seems to be propagating from the corner underneath the blacked out section. The only thing that...

    Phone as key and Tesla WC observations

    The app has been pretty good in my opinion and has always alerted me to (false) alarms, updates and charging notifications. It’s also really useful when I don’t have my keys on me and I quickly need to open the car. I did freak out the other day when I checked the app in the supermarket to...

    Profitable Q3. No need to thank me ;)

    Just imagine if world leaders starting tweeting such rubbish... H&L I my opinion is pretty decent for share dealing. You will need to fill out a W-8BEN form for tax purposes but that’s about it.

    UMC Gen2 Questions

    A simple search on how not to wire a plug comes up with some fine examples. :oops: This is the example not my attempt to switch blue/black and red/brown wires.

    Oh..I wondered why it didn't match up. I'll twist and join the wires up with some electrical tape.

    Thanks for the concern and I’ll keep you posted. Brown is live and blue is neutral right? ;)

    UMC Gen2 Questions

    Sounds like a good idea but doesn’t help if the only socket close to the car will be wired “incorrectly”. I might just make up a test extension lead with the live/neutral flipped and see if the UMC complains.

    UMC Gen2 Questions

    I'm planning on driving down to the alps next year for a ski trip and started making plans. Clearly the route is well stocked with superchargers so there will be no issues en route, but the question that I'm unsure about is the use of the UMC whilst in France. I've read that there isn't a...

    UK Owners with v10?

    Maybe just minor bug fixes then. As for the USB stick - this has been mentioned before and I think as Tesla roll out more cameras that get recorded the stricter the requirements will be. I’ve always suggested that people opt for an SSD based solution than USB keys as the write speeds will be at...

    UK Owners with v10?

    Any news on what the update does? Had a notification on my phone it’s ready to install but didn’t have time this morning.

    V10 - Car moves to the right side of the lane when passing trucks on AP?

    I noticed this last weekend on V10. The car now gives a little bit of passing room to trucks on the left - this was on a nice wide road though and guess that if the roads are narrower then it will stay central within the lane. I always thought in V9 that it felt a little close, but given how...

    Had a close call today! (Footage included)

    Good job that nothing was coming the other way. He probably didn’t see you as you are just out view when he turns right but clearly fails to check over his shoulder before moving out on to the road again. I’m not sure what you are driving but even a model 3 would probably have close to a tonne...

    Sentry & Dashcam

    I’m not sure what the consensus is but there was a rumour going around that USB sticks are not ideal for continuous writing, particularly now that Tesla seem to be including more cameras to the mix and they might not be able to keep up with the writing speed requirements. I’ve been running an...
