    In which case it’s good to see they appear to have been installed in such a way as to allow charging from cars with ports on either side without unnecessarily blocking stalls. Oh.

    iPhone 14 Pro Max in Model Y

    Update to say that a slimmer Torras case without MagSafe and the 14 Pro Max has resumed wireless charging in the Model 3.

    iPhone 14 Pro Max in Model Y

    iPhone 14 Pro Max with Apple Silicon MagSafe case, 2020 Model 3 Performance with Jeda Wireless Charger. Phone does not wirelessly charge with case on, it does wirelessly charge with case off.

    Tyre Pressures and warnings

    Mildly interesting… my Model 3 Performance the label in the passenger door says pressures should be 42psi front and rear, whilst after a recent software update (forget which one) the service page with tyre pressures on the screen now says they should be 43psi front and 42psi rear.

    New Energy Price Guarantee

    Just read this on Money Saving Expert regarding unit rates under the new cap. I note it says average, which possibly indicates there may be some small variations between companies? The energy price guarantee limits the amount households can be charged per unit of gas or electricity. So your...

    LEZ zone London - what the heck do I do?!

    As I understood it before being able to register my M3 for the cleaner vehicle discount, you will have to pay the congestion charge for the day if you enter the congestion charge zone. You won’t be able to claim it back later once you are registered for the discount. If you know you’ll...

    Alarm false fires

    Mine had gone off a few times since being at Goodwood House at the weekend. Found the culprit a little earlier today, a grasshopper!

    This is what Oxford Redbridge looked like when I pitched up just over a week or so ago towards the end of what had been the official opening of the EV facility. It was still a bit of a building site, and certainly off camera there’s space for additional facilities. I think the other Teslas in...

    EV Fuel Price Protest

    Relevant point of note in the below is, I suppose, the acknowledgment that as switch from fossil fuel cars to EVs takes place there will be a significant loss of tax revenues that will need to be replaced from somewhere else… https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-62079052

    Stopped off at Oxford Redbridge earlier on the way back south from Bolton. The sat nav suggested a limited service and, not sure if this was the reason why, but when I got there there was a bit of a party going on for what was apparently the official opening ceremony of the EV charging facility...

    Wiki UK and Ireland Supercharger Site News

    It is simply that if the aim is to ultimately open up the UK network beyond what is being trialled, then going forward it really needs to be capable of one car/one stall charging irrespective of make. It seems ludicrous to continue building and opening new installations that now have a known and...

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    There must be some mild irony in opening up the SC network in order to benefit all EV users, but in so doing certainly potentially making the self same network overall less efficient.

    Proposed Recharge One site at Buriton A3 Interchange

    Happened across this earlier, not sure what to make of it. It’s a proposal for a combined off-grid eco lodge village, retail site and EV charge facility just south of Petersfield on the A3 so not too far from the Liphook superchargers. Seems a strange sort of set up with the eco lodges and...

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    Possibly, but all the evidence available right now today then suggests that like everything else that is left to the market they’ll be unaffordable to a significant minority (which gets ever bigger and may soon be, if it’s not actually already, a majority).

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    There is. We just need a Superchargers infrastructure and installation ministerial VIP lane, then the cash would be falling from the magic money tree’s branches like confetti.

    Tesla Screen (Dangerous)

    The Tesla screen is only dangerous if the driver wants it to be dangerous. A good read of the manual, use of voice commands as much as possible and, again, it’s only dangerous if the driver wants it to be dangerous. There is after all, if really challenged, always the option of stopping safely...

    Weeks away from likely causing chaos at peak times at least, with non-Tesla cars that will have to block bays to charge. But then chaos and our current government go hand in hand I suppose.

    Parking annoyance

    If what's just appeared on my credit card is accurate, I didn't check price before actually charging, then I think Rugby Superchargers have just increased from 33p/kWh last Thursday to ~40-41p/kWh today.

    Used Rugby Superchargers earlier for the first time in around six months. Could have sworn the last time I passed through they and the adjacent bank of Gridserve chargers were the same kWh price, but this time though the Superchargers were 33p/kWh and Gridserve 45p/kWh. Just wondering if my...

    Anyone regretted getting a Performance M3?

    So what? 3.1s M3P v 4.2s LR v somewhere between 7-10s probably for an average car. At a roundabout/traffic light/crossing junction or whatever grand prix either the M3P or LR will see off most else that’s likely to be sat there beside them, or be able to go for the same gap. Both M3P or LR is...

    Anyone regretted getting a Performance M3?

    Not regretted it, but I wouldn’t buy another one. If I do buy a Model 3 again it will be the LR. The acceleration/performance is a novelty that wears off, can’t be sensibly used the majority of the time one is driving and makes for a bit of a hair trigger throttle that isn’t always ideal. Then...

    Alternative to UK VED (car tax)

    I think it actually all depends on which of their mate’s companies they can give the contract to, rather than what the most efficient outcome for the end user may be.

    Alternative to UK VED (car tax)

    Can't they also use the chips in the covid vaccines for tracking when you're in a vehicle and then charging accordingly? :cool: Whilst it's true to a degree already, the only apparent certainty in the future (apart from death and taxes) will be that there is zero privacy for anyone anywhere.
