    Model 3 steering failure

    If it is water ingress into the wire harness not much you can do. We take power assisted steering for granted. Hope you get back on the road soon.

    Smelly HVAC

    Filters are £15 from Tesla. You will need 2 pieces. Having recently replaced mine myself, I can confess whilst doable, a bit of a faff. If you have other items requiring attention, recommend adding to a service request. Jason Fenske did a video on YT recently about how reasonable Tesla repair...

    Climate Keeper Unavailable

    No price. Covered under warranty. U.K. M3s under warranty until at least mid-June. What did I miss? Good luck.

    Is PPF and Ceramic worth it?

    So glad I got my car ceramic coated. I hand wash my car and what a difference to previous cars not ceramic coated. Dirt just floats away.

    High winds & frunk

    You have understood correctly. I suspect the door skin is "glued" to the steel frame and that the check strap attaches to said frame. I hope I am mistaken otherwise this could be one very expensive repair. On the flip side good to see plenty of salvage parts available :)

    High winds & frunk

    Nope. Now making contact with door striker and I can hear wind noise when driving. Trying to get Tesla to look at it but they insist it is a TBRC matter, even if re-alignment.

    High winds & frunk

    No. I’ve had a chance to properly inspect this and I am baffled. The hinges bear the weight of the door but there is a check strap that is designed to prevent the door from opening beyond its limit. The door did not make impact with anything. Paint is intact. Wing is intact. In fact fold does...

    Storm Eunice vs Tesla Model 3

    Storm Eunice vs Tesla Model 3

    High winds & frunk

    I’m pretty sure hinges shifted on impact. Need to have a proper look when winds die down. Unawares door skin was aluminium.

    High winds & frunk

    Fell victim to Storm Eunice. Stay at home they said. Should have heeded the advice. Gust yanked door from my grip swinging it wide open (stops did not work?!). PDR or new skin. Expensive lesson either way.

    Chipex for scratches!

    Same thing happened to me. Noticed white scruff against rear door. Sentry confirmed my worst nightmare. Driver drove off and parked elsewhere. Found car and waited for driver to return. Knew exactly why I was waiting. Exchanged details and told me to claim through insurance. No dents as far...

    Things to look for when collecting your M3

    48.26 UI Changes - thumbs up or down?

    Wished they had optimised it for RHD. Menu option should be on the right. Close icon X should be on the right. Windows were flipped, but not the content. One can only wish.

    This is exactly why premiums and/or excess is so high for a Tesla. They need to do better.

    Interesting. I have always dropped off both key cards. Last time one was misplaced but replaced FOC. Maybe I don't need to hand them over but 42xxxx VIN.
