    Considering selling my Model 3.. surely there won’t be a better time than now?

    £48k seems about right, you can see the trend in the UK, and they're coming off their highs' and the number available has climbed rapidly Pound falling has in the past led to Tesla putting up the prices, and higher new prices will support used prices. But economy struggling and you can imagine...

    Driving a Tesla in the UK, as explained by a foreigner.

    I don't actually think undertaking, passing on the left is a cause, the figures I've seen more recently show US death rates are 4x higher than uk. I don't think you can put it down to our road types limiting speed, our safest roads by far are motorways and dual carriageways, the type of roads...

    BBC Fake News - Tesla ordered to recall more than a million US cars

    Isn't the headline saying Tesla are being made to fix something they should and could have done already? I'm happy I don't need to visit a service centre, but the fact it got serious enough to be mandated just means I have to question Tesla's sense of priorities, and why they preferred to give...

    [UK] 2022.28.X

    There's now a video guide that might make it clearer, it seems only the red chargers are within range.

    [UK] 2022.28.X

    I don't think any of them know the rules for sure, otherwise they wouldn't make so many mistakes. The start of this thread read like a pantomine, "oh no there isn't, oh yes there is... oh no there isn't..." :-) Amongst all that I've read it's Tesla only letting some owners have it while they...

    Tyre Pressures and warnings

    Agreed it's a potential issue - I've read BMW have temperature and pressure sensors in the tyre and adjust the target temperature based on actual tyre temp relative to ambient temp so while the pressure may be higher because of use, they tell you the tyre should be inflated to a higher pressure...

    [UK] 2022.28.X

    Seems hit and miss, mine appeared this morning in the release notes. Interestingly I used the car a few times yesterday after updating to 2022.28.1 and no dice, but when I got in it this morning the release notes were displayed again like it does after an install and this time it listed it. All...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    The one Tesla sells dates back to the original Model S and before foam in the tyres. I'm just suggesting it might not solve the problem but should still inflate the tyre if it's a slow puncture to allow you to limp along. Apologies if it sounded like I'd suggested the wrong one was bought, it's...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I thought the issues with any of the gunk type repairs is Tesla use acoustic tyres with a foam lining and the sealant doesn't tend to get to the actual hole? Bit late to mention it now I guess as you've bought it

    Tessie App

    Local keys are an option, but as said, you still have to send them somewhere as a direct call to the Tesla API isn't as easy as it once was, you often need to wake the car, mix get and post requests, maintain the keys so they don't expire inconveniently etc or have somewhere to capture all that...

    Tessie App

    Yes, there's a feature "remote start" through the app which also bypasses pin to drive. You don't need a keycard. Your question is the reason I mention it, many think because lots of people give away their tokens to third parties it must be safe. I gave up on the UK Owners group when they...

    Car adjusting speed for Speed Limits ?

    It looks like you've quoted an old post, but mine will do that on some roads, but not others. We have 2 way roads with a 60 limit and it works fine, if you go up a class of road to a divided carriageway (each direction has its own road with a physical barrier between), it stops working for me.

    Checklist for travel in France - advice appreciated

    The bulbs thing, I just bought the cheapest generic set I could fine, think it cost about £3. Seemed silly not to so as to avoid the potential discussion. Ironically, while the bulbs have never been useful and I doubt any actually fit, the fuses that came in the set have been, albeit on my...

    Tessie App

    Many of us on here prefer teslamate, there's a thread on it. You self host it so its a bit more tricky but you're not giving anyone your tokens (which means nobody can find your car, open it, and drive it away, even if you have pin to drive turned on). All 3rd parties claim to have great...

    Driving a Tesla in the UK, as explained by a foreigner.

    And yet a 50% higher death rate. Maybe 6 is to blame Some blame the UNECE regulations for our restrictions but maybe they just save us from ourselves.

    Driving a Tesla in the UK, as explained by a foreigner.

    Our car's aren't crippled by UNECE regulations, the reason our performance is so far behind the US is because all the factors the OP has mentioned aren't taken into account yet. Even remote summon, our car parks are tighter than the US and I'd rather not have my car driver over curbs or grass...

    Anybody have an X on order for the U.K.?

    We usually get cars between 6 and 12 months behind LHD Europe, call it 9 months, but as none have turned up yet you can fairly sure it's at the very earliest Q3 next year. MX also lags MS, and as 12Pack says there is a rumour of MS in Q4, whether LHD MX turn up as well is unknown but that could...

    Premium Connectivity Vs. Connectivity to WiFi/HotSpot on phone

    Correct (almost) Nav uses a different traffic feed regardless of premium, on the maps with premium its just rendering the Google traffic overlay which the car otherwise ignores. Of course most of the time the two sets of traffic information are likely to be the same but you do get exceptions...

    Tesla adding powered frunk to Model Y?

    That's the same site that said I'd have blended braking/regen 2 releases ago which never arrived, and based a story saying the M3 and MY are getting the yoke on a picture of one in the semi. Sometimes you have to see a website for what it is, it's not a complete clickbait machine for...

    AXA Crash Test Tesla Model S

    Well the first part is interesting if there are statistically more EV accidents pro rata than ICE. It would certainly be interesting to understand why that would be the case. We can guess (and it is a guess) at the instant torque means they take off more quickly, no engine noise so people...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I know the feeling about LHD car videos! Luckily, there are some RHD. This one goes through setting up your phone key, wifi, phone pairing for calls etc.. which I wish I'd seen when I got my car.

    AXA Crash Test Tesla Model S

    Weird. Only bad news could come from it for AXA so its hard to see the motivation, unless it's been taken wildly out of context.

    Self-driving cars UK Discussion

    There are 2 issues, the range and the technology they use. One of which is under Tesla controls, the technology. For summon to work they need to have a constant connection and bluetooth can glitch which results in the connection momentarily dropping and the car stopping. If they fixed that then...

    Rumour: Model 3/Y to lose stalks in 2023 model year

    Funny how they're doing this as it unclutters the cabin design in the quest for a button free cabin.. by adding a load of buttons to the steering wheel. In the UK, a quick flash if the headlights is a very common, if not strictly correct, use of full beam. that will become even more difficult...

    Self-driving cars UK Discussion

    Motivated by the thread I thought about complaining to the advertising standards authority. To do so I went to collect evidence, and the current wording on the Tesla website for FSD when buying is Upcoming: Autosteer on city streets Whereas in the US it says "Coming soon" My linguistic...

    Rumour: Model 3/Y to lose stalks in 2023 model year

    Clickbait at its finest? It's the same website that announces new software features about 5 times like blended physical braking with regen, and I still don't think anyone actually has it yet. And the idea is stupid too.

    2022 Model 3 LR max range drop to 354 [in the UK]

    I'm fairly sure its real, I've seen it explained in a few places including here on TMC, and people reporting the fix works. Somebody recently said after solar panels were installed they started to lose displayed range as their charging pattern had changed from every few days to whenever they got...

    [UK] 2022.24

    No, neither of those. The brake lights are now said to flash if you're braking really hard as an extra warning. My previous BMW did this and I think most cars do as part of passive safety type measures. I've never followed myself and braked hard to know if our Tesla does it currently, whether...

    High pitched beep on unlocking

    We've (well I have) been talking about this on one of the software update threads and it seems to be earlier cars. Not that knowing actually cures the issue, but my speculation was pre Ryzen cars have the problem, others think its 2020 and before, maybe that's US built or pre heatpump, although...

    [UK] 2022.24

    Could be, there's obviously something different between the cars, if is 2020 and before then pre heat pump... #speculation There's a guy on the UK facebook page saying the dynamic braking change is coming... not sure he's any more reliable. I might arrange to follow my friend at a distance and...

    2022 Model 3 LR max range drop to 354 [in the UK]

    You can't tell if you need to calibrate stuff if you're showing % as far as I know, so I'm with George, but then I'm a self confessed "display miler". But I don't think George was saying your shouldn't show % if that's what you want, just that it didn't answer the question, if anything it...

    [UK] 2022.24

    Yep, and they haven't got wipers out of Beta so the chances of FSD happening is a somewhat distant dream. I also wonder if they'll keep the Beta tag as some legal protection if the worst happened. I can't see the subject ever being "finished" as such, there will always be improvements that can...

    Data limit reached?

    In fairness a "workaround" implies an unofficial route to get it to work, an official route would be in the user manual and a related question might be simply "how do you get it to work". Language is a wonderful thing

    Tesla Self Parking

    Model S aren't though The point I was trying to make is Tesla change the spec of their car so often that just quoting a year doesn't tell you everything, the hardware and software version can all make a difference, and an acknowledgement of that to me could have been informative to casual...

    2022 Shipping Movements

    I'm not sure what value this adds given China makes cars for Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong all of which are RHD as well. If they are heading to Europe that could be heading to Ireland, especially as someone reported a lot of new inventory appearing on the Tesla website whereas...

    Tesla Self Parking

    Do we have to? He's one of the worst for doing these type of tests Does he say whether the 2019 cars are HW2.5 or HW3? (thats a rhetorical question) I doubt he even knows how to tell. Does he make the point that AP1 is Mobileye eyeQ3 and the BMW system will be eyeQ4 or even eyeQ5? Does he...

    Hasn't it been said several times lately that Berlin is making MY LR in white and black, which would mean your car could be coming from there? This thread is hard enough to follow, Berlin isn't helping as it's introducing some confusion, but anyone awaiting a LHD MY in white or black needs to...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    I think it can work both ways. I know some argue that the UNECE rules are hindering Tesla in Europe but when you sit down and read the regulations they make perfectly sensible reading. One person was objecting about automatic lane change on motorways not allowing him to just put his indicator...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    And of course the law/UNECE and the like deciding the what and how of all this is one thing, Tesla being able to meet whatever they come up with is another. Imagine if they say something as simple as "for law enforcement and wider driver awareness, any car operating under level 4 conditions...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    Well I agree it's not true if the sensor is unreliable. But if the sensor is telling you something reasonable, then mixing that with all the other sensor info in your AI model will help. Tesla seem unable to do it, whether the radar was junk or they just gave up is anyone's guess, but if the...

    Charging at hotels, caravans, guesthouses, cabins etc with 3 pin plug

    Etiquette is to never charge anywhere unless you know you're allowed to. If you don't know for sure then you can't possibly know its ok. Many apply the "seek forgiveness rather than ask for permission" argument but its a poor one. If you ask, then you'll always know what you can do, how fast...

    I'm not sure you think "vision" is and what's been solved there to think it's now just a question of intelligence. Vision is still fooled. We spent some time looking at Watson, the IBM intelligent thing. They're trying to make out it has AGI characteristics but its more like an set of...

    My experience buying n approved used Tesla from Birmingham

    It's a kind of glass half full (they fixed the issues) or half empty thing (the car should never have been delivered like that). My experience was somewhat different - a problem with the car meant they cancelled pick up twice and when I did go to pick it up there was still a fault. Add to that...

    [UK] 2022.24

    I saw loads of the sites say it was for the M3 and and MY, then I saw chat that said it's only on the LFP cars which is why the LR/P owners didn't get it, then others say it's only on the LR/P cars and so the LFP cars won't get it. They can't both be right and I ended up being of the opinion...

    What Car EV feature

    It matters because it sets the expectation there is a reliable buffer, and there might not be one, or not as big as subsequent posts have shown. It is a pretty big article to cover something that you'd never do, I don't recall them ever doing it for petrol cars where they compared how a BMW...

    [UK] 2022.24

    All the main sites are leading on the same set of changes, but I'm guessing the only thing we'll notice is the movable blind spot image position. The driver profile thing is fairly niche for people with multiple cars, I don't know anyone that has a beeping sentry mode anyway (although Tesla...

    I agree, but people seem to punt Symonds videos as if they explain something when they never do, or not accurately. I haven't watched them all, but driving 300metres in 2 cars, one with and one without the laminated windows and a phone app trying to measure the sound, the newer car with the...
