    Poor polishing

    I will do, i haven’t got my Tesla yet.

    Poor polishing

    Indeed that seems a crazy price. £250 at my local detailer with rave reviews too. Or do it yourself even cheaper, it's really not difficult.

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    You can expect the pricing to be premium though. And all the options too.. !

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    I e-mailed to cancel my P order a couple of weeks ago and didn't get a reply initially... however one dropped in my e-mail this morning asking me to confirm cancellation - wait for it.... as my P order is still due mid to late May! :rolleyes:

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    Indeed, the P zero's are not as good as the Pilot Sports. I have the Pilot Sports currently and they are so sticky it's unreal. Tesla claim 3.1 but that is with a 1ft rollout - I'd never heard of it before Tesla! So 3.3 to 60 seems to be the number from a standing start.

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    So the LR is definitely faster because it exists in physical form and not a delivery mirage 🤣

    Now let's see it at <40% battery 🤣

    Agile plunge pricing predictions

    One storm for some wind generation and some good pricing. Then back to normal spot gen and expensive prices. One night of low prices make's all the 35p time worthwhile 🤣

    Acceleration Boost £1.5k

    The ride seems to be a very subjective thing. I've come from performance cars too and much preferred the LR ride over the P. The P just felt too hard. But many performance drivers love it. So an LR with boost makes sense. For me. But everyone is different - that's what it comes down to...

    You could alternatively assume those looking to use Boost 50 are not drowning themselves in worry about it being read on a log or monitored OTA...

    Test Drive tomorrow - what to look out for?

    Ask for longer. I’ve had 3 test drives, two in an LR and one in a P. All an hour each.

    Boost 50

    Thanks. Definitely my first accessory purchase upon delivery of the LR! I think the battery pre-conditioning is also a good feature, could be useful when using third party charger.

    Boost 50

    Fantastic! How easy was it to install? I’ve installed tuning boxes on ICE before, just took one off the Audi before it goes back. So relatively handy but know they can be a bit fiddly how is the extra 50hp?

    Swirl marks etc since delivery day.

    Indeed. Audi came back from routine service last month to swirls all over a brand new bonnet. Truth is that only the car enthusiasts among us seem to notice. In reply to thread, sorry not sure you're going to get anywhere chasing it. For me in the future I am never letting any dealer wash...

    Octopus Smart Meter Experiences

    It’s a beta, if you email and ask they will tell you what is available and send a signup link.

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    The UK figure is with 1ft rollout subtracted though. Only for the performance. Whether it's 3.1 or 3.3 - it's still mightily quick!! :cool:

    Octopus Smart Meter Experiences

    They wouldn't let me on GO without receiving smart meter readings, presumably to guard against this issue.

    ANPR at SuC sites - Idea

    From a business point of view, I'm assuming they would first look at locations with the electrical infrastructure - i.e nearby substations with capacity. Then, they would want to site them at low cost. Buying your own land or leasing it, providing access, is all expensive and would be...

    ANPR at SuC sites - Idea

    Really like this idea, or a sticky plate that goes over number plate . Or some show plates that say TESLA. If I get stopped, I'm just an enthusiastic youtuber making car videos, after all.

    BMW Mini charging (?) at Tesla Supercharger

    I'd be surprised if they have, or would. Most likely just a clueless EV owner.

    PCN at supercharger Kings Lynn despite reasonable efforts

    It would be easy enough for Tesla to program in a popup message on the in-car display when you plug in saying "car park registration required".. Too easy perhaps.

    PCN at supercharger Kings Lynn despite reasonable efforts

    As a new Tesla customer, I am shocked that a company, so far ahead in tech, has these issues with parking tickets at superchargers. One to watch so thanks for the warnings but REALLY?

    Acceleration Boost £1.5k

    I’ve no issue with doing it. It’s a personal choice, have heard all the same with TD1 codes on ICE cars.

    Ghost upgrade - 2021 LR?

    Thanks, appreciated

    I test drove a 2020 P back to back with an LR. It was f**king quick... :cool:

    Ghost upgrade - 2021 LR?

    Anyone with a 2021 LR know if they have the 980 rear motor that allows the ghost upgrade? GHOST UPGRADE Thanks!

    Is that a picture of the new refreshed 2021 P with the battery issue? 🤣

    Tesla Test Drives in the UK . .

    Fully remote test drive, back to back in LR and P here during lockdown. Went to SC, scanned a QR code, cars remotely unlocked, one hour in each. Faultless. Every other car dealer was closed.

    Acceleration Boost £1.5k

    Definitely doing this. or the ingenext boost module. Anyone know if the ghost upgrade would work on a 2021 LR?

    Performance not performing

    Would be interested to know how many 2021 P have been delivered... problems are now widely reported but simultaneously there have been months of delays with new P orders. 2+2 = 4 ?

    Performance not performing

    Haha. To be honest, my decision was marginal for ages. I actually had an LR and a P on order for a while as just couldn't make my mind up! I've always had the fastest car I could justify but the P did have some trade offs to the LR in regard to ride quality especially (for me, it's a personal...

    Performance not performing

    Indeed. I had a P on order and would have loved the extra performance but the wealth of evidence against it was overwhelming... The numerous videos, threads, reports etc. I knew the doubt and frustration would inevitably spoil the enjoyment of the car so changed to an LR. If you spend an...

    Bjorn Nyland: New Model 3 Battery Pack Has Temperature Issues in Cold

    The OP's latest update said the latest software didn't fix the problem. But would love to see the data comparisons on your LR if you have them, I am a data geek :cool:
  36. B

    Performance not performing

    Indeed. First reports of an issue in Oct 20, it's now 7 months later and the number of complaints about this are increasing. Not an "easy fix" after all !

    £500 SR+ M3 insurance hike?!?!?

    Well, yes, it does make a difference. Insurance co's have this down to a science. They have mountains of data and everything is priced for the risk it presents according to historic claims. Their actual profit margins are relatively low, none of it is a "scam", it is a highly regulated...

    Performance not performing

    I agree with you. At least they are now publicly acknowledging there is a problem with battery performance at low state of charge on the P's. That was enough for me to cancel and switch to an LR anyway. Going to be a lot of unhappy people getting P deliveries when they come :rolleyes:

    Bit of a worry that they still consider the cars "within spec" with the problem though.

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    They give you 7 days to arrange collection from the date given. If you can't take delivery within that timeframe they "unmatch" you from the car.

    Performance not performing

    You would think so. What concerns me is that these issues were first reported in January and yet here we are end of April with the OP reporting worse performance than the original reports. So thats 4 months, in winter, where a fix could (and should) have been quickly applied. if i bought the...

    Performance not performing

    Covered previously in the thread. It is thought the heat pump scavenges heat from the battery for cabin heating; battery performance then drops as we know batteries perform better when warm. In the tests, the performance on the P dropped significantly as battery temps decreased from 28c to 8c...
