    Model 3 trip range estimates

    I was planning to drive from Darts Farm superchargers Exeter yesterday to Membury Services and the car (SR+) added a short stop via Gordano Bristol. When I tried to remove this stop the car advised to remain below 75mph to reach membury and I would have 4% of battery remaining. Does anyone know...

    The BMS, Range and Degradation

    Does anyone believe Tesla deliberately prevent the ability for the car to accurately capture true range and degradation? If feels like it wouldn’t be too complex for a charging related routine to be created where the car can begin to correlate range with true miles driven and then exclude non...

    Tyres - How’s it going?

    I thought it may be useful to get a thread going on the subject of tyres. I’m 18 months in with my SR+ and have 13.5k on the clock and I’m down to 3.3mm on my Pilot Sport 4’s. Is anyone find the wear particularly significant? I was expecting to have more wear on the backs with it being rear...

    Service Intervals

    My August 2019 M3 will soon be nearing the two year period for the recommended maintenance items to be checked. Am I correct in thinking as Tesla switched to an ‘as needed’ maintenance schedule I would you need to book it in rather than wait for any contact or communication from them?

    Foam filled / non foam filled tyres

    Has anyone switched from the standard foam filled tyres to non foam filled and noticed any significant increase in road noise? I’m assuming all M3 tyres which come as standard with the various versions are foam filled so just wondering if anyone has switch to a non standard tyre and...

    M3 Steering Column Rattles

    Anyone experiencing any issues relating to random rattles coming from the steering column? The pattern appears to anytime the steering wheel adjustment is triggered from a driver profile change the column will then click and rattle on every bump for most of the proceeding journey. If the car is...

    Phantom Drain Post Latest Update

    Anyone experiencing higher than previous cases of phantom drain since the latest software update? Without sentry activated I am finding a loss of 8 miles per night versus just a single mile previously. Maybe the outside temperature is causing the car to wake up up and increase battery...

    Oversteer Issue

    I had a touch of oversteer earlier as I was pulling out of a bend and I’m not sure if I corrected it, the car corrected or it just corrected itself once I gained some traction. I’ve never had a RWD car before so is this a common likelihood? The road wasn’t wet. I was probably going off after...

    Limited Regen behaviour

    Does anyone fundamentally understand how the limited regen works as it seems very random. Some days I’ll charge shortly before leaving the house and will have limited regen. Other days no charge throughout the night, similar outside temperatures and no limited regen. I’ll then drive for 15...

    Sentry Confusion - Random Triggers

    I returned from a weeks holiday to find the car stating the 128gb memory card was full. On checking the footage there are literally hundreds of sentry clips of absolutely nothing. No people present no passing cars etc. No obvious triggers whatsoever. Is anyone else finding this? In this...

    How many Tesla’s have you sold so far..

    I thought it would be interesting and a bit of fun to gage the interest from friends and family who have seen your car considering Tesla claim the majority of their orders are from connections to previous purchases. So far I’ve sold one model 3 performance, a model Y and potentially a third M3...

    New Home Charger Installations & DNO EV Applications

    So I had a charger installed at home a few weeks ago and the electrician had recently been on ‘the course’ where he learned that anyone that has a maximum electrical demand in excess of 60 amps has to effectively apply to the ENA for approval to use the charger so that the supply / capacity...

    Owner experiences: Range v Miles Driven

    How are new owners finding the variance between range spent and real miles driven on various trips so far? I did a 91 mile trip yesterday which involved some M25, Blackwall tunnel queues, waiting for 15 minutes at a supermarket, a ten minute acceleration display to a friend and crawling around...

    Variance in wall charger output

    Probably a silly question but charged the car with the wall charger on Wednesday with about 120 miles remaining in the car and was receiving around 26 mile per hour. Did the same yesterday and was receiving around 15 miles per hour with a similar remaining range on the car relative to the...

    Source Vin & Delivery Window Text Correlation

    So for everyone who received the Delivery update text at the beginning of August, does the time frame specified correlate to the vin number range you had in your source code based on the spreadsheet? This could be a good indication of whether that text was an automated message based on the vin...

    Final Invoice Plan

    Is anyone intending to pay their final invoice now seeing as its appeared? Do you think by paying it you then land onto a paid list of customers where they will prioritise your delivery arrangement over others who have yet to pay? Seems like a logical approach to move cars fast once they begin...

    Wall Charger Placement

    Had my wall charger installed and the electrician has placed it considerably high on the wall compared to what I was expecting. Does anyone know if you can place them quite low on the wall? The guidance in the charger manual suggests 1.2m from the ground but doesn’t specify to the top of...

    Mud Guards

    I was reading the model 3 exterior forum pages this morning and stumbled on a thread where around 150 users were buying mud guards in a bid to avoid stone chips behind each of the wheels often experienced in poor weather on these cars. Is anyone else considering some preemptive measures in the...

    Teslas And Cold Weather

    I keep reading accounts of how these cars will use up a considerable level of range by warming the battery in cold weather. Can anyone confirm if this is only experienced when starting out and can be avoided by preheating the car prior to driving or is it a thing where the car will constantly be...

    Solar / Powerwall Considerations

    Currently have a power cut which had me wondering if anyone has had any degree of success with solar panels at home? Are they a fad? Can you make them worthwhile etc? The stories you typically hear are usually along the lines of the initial set up fees being so high its decades before any...
