    Anyone regretted getting a Performance M3?

    I’ve had my M3P for just over 3 years with 23k miles on the clock and my rims are as in as perfect a condition as they were when I picked the car up - it can be done 😊 And I love my MP3 too!

    Front windscreen defogging

    As an adjunct to this post - my windscreen is constantly filthy inside (not misty), as if the filter (if there is one) isn't working. Does anyone else have this experience and is there a cure?

    Wiki Your first UK Tesla MOT? Checklist before the visit.

    Had my first MOT on my M3P 2 weeks ago at Kwikfit. It Passed with no problems - still on the original tyres. The guys there were knowledgeable. I waited while it was done. £45. Taxed the same day. £0 Marvellous :)

    V11 - what’s your verdict?

    My subwoofer has appeared on the sound mixer for (I think) the first time, since this update. It was set to off when I discovered it. I’ve put it to max and man, this is a whole new dimension to listening to music. Am I the last one to discover it, I’ve only had the car for two and a half years! :)

    Wiki [UK] V11 UI Changes and Features

    Really like the update. Sentry Mode Live Camera is awesome. Tidal seems far superior in sound quality compared with Spotify (I'll decide in a month if I will switch). Blind spot camera is great too. I don't mind the new UI. It's like everything - you get used to it.

    M3P 2021 ride quality on UK roads?

    Surprisingly because at the time it was believed that the 20” wheels and tyres were noisy and uncomfortable - mine are not. My car was built in the USA and was an early shipment. No complaints - just love everything about the car and it’s philosophy.

    M3P 2021 ride quality on UK roads?

    My M3P is surprisingly quiet - at all speeds, and the ride quality is still excellent. It is getting on a bit now but still no rattles or squeaks either. All in all - very pleased.

    Parking Assist Not Working [not Autopark]

    I have an issue with my sensors too. The rear passenger side corner sensor didn't warn me that I was too close to a parked vehicle while reversing in a tight parking area. Consequently I've now got a few scratches on my bumper. Got someone to test them when I was sat in the car and no warnings...

    Octopus Go random Billing

    If you’ve got the time and patience try adding up the Octopus daily half hourly consumption total for a day and see if it equals the total daily consumption that Octopus state. Mine have varied with a +20% difference on one day. All the days that I have checked the total are greater than the...

    My car never sleeps. It shows P for parked but no zzz (on TeslaFi). Do I have to sing a lullaby at night time to it or what’s the secret. I’ve got sentry mode turned off at home too!

    What are people's thoughts on the Mustang Mach e?

    Like the Ford but I'm increasingly being drawn to the Jaguar I-Pace. I like the external styling a lot and the interior is definitely winning me over having sampled minimalist. Leather and binnacles (+HUD) appeal now. I read that sales are on the increase too. :cool:

    48.26 UI Changes - thumbs up or down?

    Can’t see the point of looking at a lovely picture of the car that I’m sat in while I’m driving it. It’s gotta have been configured by a young right handed IT person with 20/20 vision who is sat in front of a screen in the comfort of his nice stationary office. It’s not great in my opinion.

    One week of ownership, opinion. M3LR

    Probably been said before but for Spotify track selection using voice command I get a 100% success rate by requesting “play” artists’ name followed by track name. Doing it it in reverse often goes nowhere.

    I spotted a white 2021 M3P pulled over in a lay-by by a plain clothed black Police BMW 5 with the full flashing lights on the A31 at Farnham, Surrey this morning. They had probably hacked it down the long sweeping Hogs Back dual carriageway - a notorious place for police activity. Bet it was...

    It’s a Tesla.... & I’m misting up

    Check for discolouration of the roof liner after you wash the car from water ingress. I experienced almost continuous misting of my windows after I took delivery of my car. Eventually I noticed damp patches on the roof liner and occasionally water beads running down the the inside of the rear...

    Anyone want to swap roofs? Interesting service appointment

    This roof certainly looked good when the Model 3 was launched but that was all of the roof. It does look a bit odd being only 1 panel. You could always ask them to match the rear glass to that panel replaced. I was a bit disappointed that we didn't get the rainbow roof. As with other things the...

    Poll for most annoying aspect of your model 3

    *Other: When its raining and opening the boot - the water that rolls off of the boot lid onto the rear window and then cascades down into the open boot (aka "the trunk"). Californian car design at its best! :rolleyes: [hopefully now fixed in the latest revamp]

    Insurance renewal

    Had a 15000 mile a year usage with LV last year but did actually slightly more than half that so i reduced my miles to 10000 and this took my premium to well below £300 so I added a minimum breakdown cover for the year which includes puncture and flat battery and still the premium is still sub...

    What do you miss about your previous car?

    It only Bongs 4 times as you pass through the speed limit. Its a reminder that you are now above the limit. I like it coz its annoying and that's what's needed.
  32. Keeper

    What do you miss about your previous car?

    Put the speed limit Bong on. That will either slow you down or drive you crazy. I've now got it switched on coz PC Plod didn't like my speed in a 30 zone recently.

    Model 3 colour choice - I’m indecisive!

    Tesla launched the Model 3 with a brilliant silver colour which looked stunning. I can’t understand why this colour is not now an option. I hope they introduce it so that I can order my silver Model Y with the dechrome and uberturbines. :)

    FSD / AP Rewrite - turning the corner?

    Not sure I’ve got the b***s to fully use my FSD, no matter how good it is. It’s the other road users without it that I worry about. The roads around here are probably too congested for it to become a stress free experience if that’s what it’s supposed to achieve.

    Auto Wipers are awful

    Thank you so much for the excellent picture but unfortunately the car was having none of it at the time - fortunately it sorted itself out.

    Ride Quality M3LR

    Can't comment on the M3LR but the ride quality in my car is superb! I was anticipating a much harsher ride with the 20" wheels but in fact these, presumably together with the lowered suspension, makes it one of the most comfortable cars that I have owned.
