    Inventory or Custom Order?

    No there shouldn’t be any difference unless they are shipping the 3s directly from China which apparently have better build quality! All will be brand new unless stated pre-owned

    Tesla Referral - Free supercharger miles?

    Sure just PM’d you in your messages / conversations. The only offer is by using the link you get 1000 miles free supercharging added to your account. You must order through the link though as It can’t be added afterwards

    Model 3 inventory - free supercharging?

    10,000 miles a year divide by 300 miles per full charge = 33 charges x 75kw battery size @ 26p per kWh = £643.50p supercharging cost assuming only supercharging and around £99 if you use home charging at 4p per kWh. Supercharger | Tesla UK I've sent you a PM

    Model 3 inventory - free supercharging?

    then it makes sense to take advantage of the offer if it matches your original spec and colour

    Model 3 inventory - free supercharging?

    Personally I would go with a newer model with doubled insulated glass and motorised boot struts plus fewer other minor changes. The value of 1 years supercharging might be a couple hundred pounds only. Also if you move energy provider to someone like octopus go tariff the cost of electricity is...

    Congrats Volkan - the model S is an awesome car!
  34. TheEVadvisor


    No you should be fine. Remember on social media you only hear negative comments, People rarely speak out when everything is fine. Go ahead and enjoy the model 3. Should you have any issues they will be resolved quickly by service.

    Tesla pecking order

    5 years ago buying a Tesla, the early adopter owners and staff were a really friendly bunch. Now that it's attracted the drivers from the sportier marques and opened up the buying experience to everyone. The entitled, rude, mouthy owners will always be there with any brand.

    Tesla pecking order

    NO it's not like most Tesla owners. This guy sounds like a pompous prick! sorry you had to deal with that. Most early owners are fairly well off and all that I've met are very humble

    Which? suggests the MS should be recalled

    I agree handles, DLR lights, drive shaft too
  46. TheEVadvisor

    New M3LR delivered - some questions...

    sounds like most of these white marks are leftover residue from polishing and good pressure wash cleaning and wipe with microfibre should get rid of them albeit Tesla should have done this before handover. If you are a bit upset tell them and they will detail it again (properly)

    Difficulty deciding - Andersen or Zappi

    Trade in questions before new order

    1) can’t comment on the specifics. Call the sales team to clarify. 2) the trade in values are lower. Have a check on WeBuyAnyCar too and see if you are getting a fair offer
