    Plaid - anyone else waiting for their's ??

    I ordered mine 30 seconds after it was announced, over 2 yrs ago :-( Has anyone had any hints as to when RHD deliveries might commence .. ??

    Unprovoked road rage...

    I respectfully disagree. We know that motorways around the M25 have lamp posts every 50.0m, and dashed white lines at 9.0m intervals, so 10 = 90.0m. Observers car is doing 10 white lines every 82/83 frames of a 30.0fps camera (Mobius by the looks of it). Speed = distance / time, 90m / (...

    Model S/X UK Delivery - 2023

    Anyone else waiting for a Plaid in the UK ? I ordered an MS Plaid+ about 30 seconds after it was announced on Battery-Day, 22nd Sept 2020 .. nearly 2 yrs ago .. but not a peep out of Tesla ever since, despite a couple of recent email/phone enquiries ... I'm also curious to know where I am in...

    Papafox's Daily TSLA Trading Charts

    Sorry to hear about Iceman. I remember him enjoying the 2017 road trip videos. Nice to know he's to be part of the mosaic amongst the stars. I know I am not alone in thanking you for all the effort you put into the daily trading updates .. its recently become a bit of a habit to read them with...

    EU finalize and deliveries

    Hmmm, ordered MS Plaid+ about 30 seconds after it was announced on Battery-Day, 22nd Sept 2020, and not a peep out of Tesla, despite a couple of email/phone enquiries ... My RN is 1139806xx Anyone care to share their RN especially if they've had a recent update? Presumably RHD will...

    Texas Institute of Technology & Science

    Might be a good hands-on university offering more practical courses than theoretical. I'd probably graduate with a DD in applied cup teknowledgy :)

    Damnit. That's another F5 key bust ..

    Tesla, TSLA & the Investment World: the Perpetual Investors' Roundtable

    That Sister of Mercy spoke for nearly 4 minutes. As far as I know .. Tesla stopped using Cobalt from anywhere in the world in 2020, so the 4 minute speech was a wasted statement.

    Off topic galore

    Going slightly off topic .. the avatar car is a 1974 Series 3 Roadster, with a 5.3Lt V12. (edit - looks like TimS beat me too it !!) There are already various EV conversion kits that can be retrofitted to an original car, but the value of a classic E-type is into the $100k-$250k region unless...

    Poll: Yoke, or Round ?

    Hah, yeah, I remember lowering my bulk onto one of those back in the day with sense of trepidation .. and yup, it splayed out, leaving me in a heap about 2 seconds later. With spokes in strange places!

    Poll: Yoke, or Round ?

    Thanks to all who have shared their opinion. The results show more than 80% in favour of conventional wheel so far. The previous poll from February was split near 50:50 but was based on rendered images at the time. Now its out in the real World. Perhaps the poll question should have been framed...

    Poll: Yoke, or Round ?

    There has been plenty of threads and much commentary, but no straight forward Poll on this since the Plaid was launched into the hands of owners and youtubers. At the time of this reply 90% seem in favour of a conventional wheel.

    Poll: Yoke, or Round ?

    Personally I could see the yoke working ok on a cruise/fast road and could probably adapt just fine, and I like the cleaner look onto the dash and the view beyond. BUT at lower speeds, reversing, 3+ point turns this is going to be a nightmare. For example I frequently do a reverse turn looking...

    So what makes a Plaid + worth $30k more than a Plaid? [Update: Plaid+ canceled]

    Another way of looking at it is that the ordinary cooking version of the MS Plaid is a whopping $3.1 Million cheaper than a Bugatti Chiron Sport, beating it with a world record standing quarter of 9.3 seconds. And the MS has additional advantages like 4 doors, room for the family, can run on...

    As far as I am aware, all new MS's in the UK in past 18+ months have been supplied with a CCS adapter for use at the V3 SC's. Best charge rate I've seen has been around 147KW without pre-conditioning. Snowy UK pics below :-

    Octopus Agile

    Here's a screen grab from my Octopus Agile account. I've sent this to a mate considering switching to Octopus, and he was still on the same EON tariff I was on until earlier this year. I've add red annotations for EON, a comment in yellow, and the usage kWh. He emailed back saying the deed...

    I appreciate the effort you’ve put into this. However, anyone with a programming background is going to risk possible cerebral stack corruption reading through all the notation you’ve used !! Perhaps rising “Automotive Revenue: $5.18B => $7.65B” would be better expressed as “$5.18B --->...

    .. funnily enough I decided to 'just ask chuck' about this a couple of weeks ago, but the process is not straightforward if you want to transfer shares without incurring CGT. There is likely going to be a gap of many days where I'll be unable to trade which is just as bad as the situation I am...

    Here's something worrying .. I just called my UK broker to ask why my pre-split share count has not been updated, whereas the post-split share price has. I’ve just been told that they have chaos going on due to the number of frustrated APPL and TSLA clients not yet receiving the new...

    Unpleasant Experience nearly running out of charge on M6

    The HPC's were approx 16kw AC single phase, or 240v/70amps. The Roadster's battery was approx 56kWh max, so it would be a 3 hr wait if you needed a full charge, although I only ever waited an hour or so max, just to complete a journey. 99% of the time I would just leave it plugged into a 13amp...

    Unpleasant Experience nearly running out of charge on M6

    As far as I know, I was one of about 20 UK owners, although most of them seem to wrap them in cottonwool. I actually used mine daily for 4 yrs and never had any problems with hotels etc, allowing me to plug it into a bog standard 13 amp socket. Whats fascinating about the Roadster is that even...

    Unpleasant Experience nearly running out of charge on M6

    I sold it a couple of years ago, although I'd miss it for all it taught me about EV's and energy efficiency combined with amazing performance possible from solar .. and I used to get through about £5k-6k worth of petrol in a previous car of (almost) equivalent performance. All that 'guilt free...

    Unpleasant Experience nearly running out of charge on M6

    I’ve driven that same route, in both directions, many times, in both a Roadster (back in 2011-2012..) and a Model S. The Roadster had half the battery capacity and 50% worse Cd, so the energy drain was much more noticeable than in an MS. Before Superchargers there was a UK HPC / High Power...
