    3rd Party Chargers - An app that covers everything??

    Shell Recharge will get you the best coverage (in my opinion), in both the UK and Europe. Didn't have one charger not accept Shell Recharge on my roadtrip last month. However, you won't be paying the cheapest prices; they add a premium of around 10% compared to the EJN.

    How to be 100% sure a M3 is the 2021 model.

    It’s a 2020 model. Few key ways to tell (having owned one) - 2021 models were only registered Dec 2020 onwards. Nov and earlier are 2020 models. - 2021 has a sliding centre console (a challenge to retrofit) - Powered tail gate (can be after market) - Blacked out Chrome (can be after market) -...

    Octopus Electric Juice works great in France & Normandy trip report

    Just wanted to add to this. Did a UK -> Germany trip two weeks ago! Had no issues using Electric Juice, except in Belgium & Luxembourgh where it didn't work at any chargers. These were under the Operators 'Chargy' and 'BlueCorner'. Both of these brands were listed in the Electric Juice app...

    Post your day one Model Y and Model 3 UK pictures

    Slightly gloomy pics from picking up Southampton this morning. Hand-over process was easy; car is 99% faultless (a massive difference to my 2021 MIA Model 3 which was delivered with a dent, paint damage, staining on seats, loose trim, etc.). We walked in, which wasn't a problem. Tesla has their...

    carbon effect dash and door inlay anyone know where these can be bought in the uk for new model 3

    I've been trying to look for something like this, alot of the 'Covers' are big plastic covers that make the dash look clumsey. I'd much rather put on a 3M wrap, like D-Brand offers 👀

    Model Y UK Delivery

    You legally have 14 days to cancel for a full refund, if you're polite on the phone they should waiver it. Rather than deal with cancelling and re-applying on the same phone call

    Thoughts on myUS for the Rimetrix covers vs taking them back myself? I'm in the US at the end of March, and could pay $90 for an 'Extra Bag' to them back with me '90x75x43cm' max size. However this + the sales tax for the state of Washington seems to make the costs very similar, assuming the...

    There's nothing in the Docks, it's effectivly an Industrial Site. There's lots of stuff by the station, and a McDoanlds on the walk between the Station and Docks!

    2022 Shipping Movements

    Your order has been physically 'Held' which means it's not gone into the Tesla order Queue. Come the 1st of March your order will be released, however you'll now be at the back of the queue behind orders placed between the 19th Feb - 1st March. Which.. means you'll likely be taking delivery in...

    For ships the size of the Viking Bravery, what are the risks from stormy weather? Does continuous movement reduce the risk of damage to the ship, vs. staying still?

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Alot of people had their Delivery Date ranges slip today. If this happened to you, when did you first get the range? I got the range on the 7th of February for the 4th - 18th of March. Then on the 8th got the 'Tesla Update' text saying that my car is on the way. However I've yet to get a exact...

    Hope that helps. Your model Y is only going to start with the LRW prefix as they're all made in China at the moment

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Anyone collecting from Southampton with an estimated date range of 4th - 18th March from a VIN that was matched Yesterday worked out what Ship their car is on? I've tried contacting Live Chat, however I wasn't able to find out. Unsure if it's SFL COMPOSER or something a little later

    Model Y UK Delivery

    It's so odd that Tesla is leaving off the Parcel Shelf for UK Model Y's. It's been widely reported that the HK and Mainland China Model Y's have been manufactured with the parcel shelf since the new year: Model Y Parcel Shelf It's not like Tesla to leave out parts; typically changes are...

    10 Days via Email, wasn't best pleased after being told it should only take 2-3 working days. If it's been longer I'd get on the phone bang on 9:30am to follow up.

    Hope that this is the case! Seems alot of VIN's went out on Thursday evening. I was offered a 19th Feb delivery, however I changed my car spec 2-3 days prior and it hadn't processed yet so I had to decline! Hoping that I can take delivery before the 14th of March as I'm away until April. Called...

    Apologies for my drive-by photography. But the Docks at Soton are FULL with Teslas today. Mostly M3's I couldn't noticeably see any Model Y's (admittedly hard to notice the difference from a distance)

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Still waiting on a VIN; Red/Black 19" ordered 9am on the 15/10. I haven't seen many Red's with the standard 19's matched?

    Leased Teslas are delivered to your home address. Did you only recently pass your Reservation over to the Leasing Co? If not, it sounds like the Leasing Company is to blame and hasn't communicated with Tesla correclty.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Be careful. I've heard that there's likely to be no deliveries in April. The pause of production for the Chinese new-year + 3-4 weeks of shipping time falls right at the end of March.

    Insurance

    Lots of talk on the Facebook pages that the Churchill Group has dropped new policies for all Tesla's as of a few days ago. Anyone got proof on such?

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I'm in the exact same boat. Have a Test drive on the 15th, and decided to change the colour and interior of the car. Send an email on the morning of the 16th, and got a reply back a few hours later to say that it will be updated in 2-3 working days. Then the 18th rolled around, and I got...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I considered this, but couldn't find someone in Hampshire willing to do full a full 3M Wrap with VAT for less than £3.5k on a Model Y. Plus on-top dealing with the complication that the Direct Line group of Insurers and lots of other Underwriters don't cover Wrapped cars, at all I decided to go...

    Claiming EV as capital allowance in UK by a sole trader / business partnership. Anyone had experience of the HMRC process and rules / reg's?

    This is completely wrong. Unless you're registered as a LTD you cannot claim a Car or a Company Car as a 'Expense'. Buying a car for business use as a Sole-Trader doesn't work, as there's no legal/tax difference between you as an individual and your company. If you have already claimed it as an...

    Where is the Southampton collection point, exactly?

    It does in the long term. If you're on Finance and plan to return it at the end no.. If you're a cash buyer, in 2-3 years time you'll expect to see at £300-600 difference to a March 2022 plate.

    Just got off the phone with Tesla. I put a request in to change the paint on my Model Y back on Saturday, however last night I got assigned a VIN for a White Ext/Int car. On the phone they said that the first ship and deliveries would be happening in February, at some new exclusive locations...

    If it's anything to go from. Thorpe Park, where they're doing the Model Y Test Drives has a massive tent up that could easily store 50-70 cars inside. It had 2 Model 3's inside when we went past for our Test Drive

    Does anyone know how long it takes for your order to update? I put a request in on Sunday Morning for a paint change on my Model Y via email and it was confirmed a few hours later. However it's yet to appear on my account.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    It’s standard carpet ones. I wouldn’t trust them to stand up to winter weather, at least the ones in my M3 didn’t. The M3 mats are a different shape, annoying as there isn’t many alternative 3rd party MY options at the moment

    They do preparation at the port in Southampton which takes around 5-7 days. My M3 in Dec 2020 arrived 8 days prior to collection, even though my collection was at Southampton Docks!

    The online Manual has also been updated to reference a ‘Structural Battery Pack’ in the Model Y 👀 What are the chances that they’ve implemented it before the new batteries. Could the increased range be related?

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Seems to be the case. And the Black Horse HP finance isn't working when you click through either. I think Tesla has botched something on their end for Business customers. I've shot an email over, will update if I get a reply.

    Awesome. Looking at the MY FB Page, it appears that only Business HP is broken. Hope they can fix it soon.
