    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    Sorry but lame argument. Reality is some places are more dangerous than others for various reasons like knife crime, thefts, vandalism etc. There are safe and unsafe neighborhoods and btw I never said everyone in Chelsea or Wimbledon was a decent person.

    Tesla owners are 50% less likely to crash their EV than their other cars

    That is so true, especially here in London as during my 4 year ownership I don't know what is it about Londoners or something about Tesla that brings out the absolute C****s in them. I have had someone key the side panel, then for no reason one day found a Styrofoam cup half full of drink placed...

    Tesla Leased Annual Maintenance Requirement?

    Thanks for the answer GeorgeSymonds and yes I did mention it last year and was told that I should be able to get the amount back for unused period but they did not mention the fact that if I trade it in for another car make then I lose the money but lesson learned I guess. 😔

    Tesla Leased Annual Maintenance Requirement?

    I know it's an old thread but just wanted to update. So last month I traded in my Tesla and emailed Tesla that since due to Covid lockdown in 2020 I was not able to use the Tesla Maintenance plan which I fully paid for in advance and also sent them attached document as proof. I further informed...

    Tesla PCP Transfer Question

    Hi, I got the Tesla Model S 75D (2018) with free supercharging and connectivity. I got the car on PCP and now am halfway with the payment which means I can either upgrade to another Tesla or let my 4 year contract run it's course and hand back the keys and walk away. However I have been...

    Next release speculation and wishes

    I'd rather take the phantom brake fix and a more stable autopilot over how fast the new Tesla can run Cyberpunk 2077. Autopilot was the main attraction for me when I leased the Tesla but now I can't wait to hand it back next year!

    Tesla Leased Annual Maintenance Requirement?

    Thanks for the replies, really appreciate it. Tesla just confirmed that my 3 year maintenance began from 2018 and will expire this year. I do remember Tesla telling me that I do not require maintenance for the 1st year for a new vehicle so that is why I chose 3 years instead of 4 years which is...

    Tesla Leased Annual Maintenance Requirement?

    Hi, I just had a question if anyone else who has leased a Tesla with Barclays bank are required to take their vehicle for annual check up with Tesla? I remember paying around £1500 for 3 year maintenance. I am asking because I just read online that since 2019 Tesla has removed that yearly check...

    So how much will this cost me?

    Good idea! Yeah that's what I was thinking that with my luck and the joys of living in London is that the moment I fix it, someone will redecorate it soon after! :eek:

    So how much will this cost me?

    The car is halfway into the lease. I am attaching the photo of the damage. I was quoted £1400 for repair or £2000 for replacing in case the radar is damaged (but I have not seen any error messages regarding any sensor or radar issue) by the approved repair guy. Thanks for the replies guys...

    So how much will this cost me?

    Does anyone have a good Tesla approved body and paint repair shop in or around London area? I need to get a 50p size dent near the registration plate for repair and the paint is chipped. Or do I have to get it repaired by Tesla since I have it on PCP? Thanks!

    Newbie Question/s

    Just gave up on the idea. No I haven't slept in the car as yet although my partner is more than excited about getting the dreamcase and camping out in the car! I keep telling her for the price of the dreamcase we can just rent a bed n breakfast or a decent motel and have a proper bedroom and...

    Emergency Auto Brake Scare!

    Couple of days ago I was driving in Central London with my partner and as you know the traffic is insane so you can't really go that fast any way. We were at a stop light and I saw a child and a woman behind him crossing the road. Now the woman was wearing a black burqa (Muslim veil) and by the...

    Newbie Question/s

    Sorry for the late reply but I cancelled my dreamcase order as it was taking way too long at the time. Plus I thought it was way too much money for something I'd probably use once or maybe twice!

    Everyone else's maps and navigation working?

    Since the latest update I have noticed incorrect navigation i.e taking weird routes around central London unlike before.

    Just getting a software update...

    Yes it's the latter so I'm glad in a way that it's a common issue. Thanks! Here is another interesting video regarding the new AP and seems like another unhappy Tesla owner:

    Just getting a software update...

    Tried the new software on the highway today. The steering nag is absolutely pissing me off. On the positive side the car seem much more stable while in AP. I am still getting the annoying blank back camera issue so don't know if anyone else is experiencing the same problem.

    Crazies on the M4!

    Damn! Seems like I did delete the video since it was like 7 months ago and really didn't think it would come down to this. Really sorry about the missing video. :(

    Crazies on the M4!

    The police asked me to remove the video as they were going to prosecute the guy. I'll check if I still have it.

    Crazies on the M4!

    That would really surprise me and maybe it's just a State law and hopefully not a federal law as the US is usually far tougher than the UK but I'm glad to see the offender brought to justice.

    Crazies on the M4!

    Just received an update from the police about the crazy driver. Here is an excerpt from the email I just received from the Metropolitan Police Dept. "Court Result: £660 fine, 6 penalty points, £166 costs." "On behalf of the Metropolitan Police Service, I would like to thank you for your...

    Failed software update, sentry mode

    Seems like after the 2019.8.4 I keep getting LTE connection issues. Hope the next update will fix that!

    Strange, I have the 2019.8.4 and that has the Dog Mode too.

    Model S and X price and option changes in the UK

    I would've gone for the P model instead of the 75D but then that's the way Elon works i.e you never know what he will do the next moment! Anyway I'm really happy to see the new prices and hope they won't increase when it's time for me to hand in my 75D in a few years. By then hardware 3.0 or...

    Source London 22kW Charging Station

    Recently Source London announced 22kW charging points near my area and so I decided to give it a try. I noticed that on my 75D Tesla dash screen it was showing only 18kW. I asked Source London why it wasn't showing the full 22kW charge and their response was that, "according to UK Electric...

    UK Model S Seat Heater VS USA Model S Seat Heater

    Well that still doesn't explain why European Model X has the heated side bolsters but not the European MS. :D

    UK Model S Seat Heater VS USA Model S Seat Heater

    LOL or it could also be when you love something then you notice everything good and bad, but yes you're absolutely right. I guess maybe I lived in the US for too long and developed the habit of being vocal about everything regardless of how small it is, as compared to here in the UK where it's...

    UK Model S Seat Heater VS USA Model S Seat Heater

    So after seeing this video: I checked my MS 75D late 2018 with the FLIR cam and found out that there are no heating elements on any of the seats side bolsters, only the back and the bum area like the Model 3. Don't know why Tesla UK cheaped out on this or is it just my car? Even my 2006 BMW...

    75Kwh battery pack being dropped from Model S/X. Refresh coming?

    I'm just glad I bought the S 75D a few months back because I wouldn't have been able to justify buying a 100D and 3 was never a consideration because looks wise the front reminds me of Kermit the frog! All in all from what I have read from many owners the S is just a better car overall.

    Latest update... ;)

    Speaking of features, wasn't there a pinch to zoom feature while viewing the web browser pre version 9 or am I imagining things? Can't seem to do that at all after version 9. :(

    Prem Audio vs Norm...

    Truly wish the MS had better sound insulation against road noise/traffic noise and include double glazed windows like in other cars. Can't really enjoy the premium sound system to be honest.

    V9 in the UK - 2018.42.2

    Speaking of maps I have been having some issues with the way the navigation alert works as sometimes it seems the alert is too late in instructing me to get in a specific lane. Also there were a couple of roundabouts where the nav said to take the first exit but the correct route was the second...

    V9 in the UK - 2018.42.2

    I thought it was on Tesla Reddit that there would be an update to "fix" the cam issue but I think you're right as for now it's just going to be the way it is.
  37. F

    V9 in the UK - 2018.42.2

    Ok the camera is not as it used be pre version 9 as it doesn't give me an option to have it split screen and move the map below and the camera above as two separate screens. Anyway it's not a huge deal at least for me but it will be fixed in the next update anyway. I noticed the auto steer...

    V9 in the UK - 2018.42.2

    I have the 2018.42.2 but haven't really messed around with the camera options to be honest, just noticed it was on the lower side and map was on top. Will check it in more detail later once I take the car on V9 test drive.

    V9 in the UK - 2018.42.2

    Wow! That was a quick and painless update. Took about 40 mins. I guess getting the Netgear car hot spot device was a good idea! lol. Can't wait to try out the new AP features. The Atari games are a great addition although definitely missing the rear cam on top option but at least it will be...

    Crazies on the M4!

    Yes, I am going to send it to the police as this idiot seems to be on a kill or be killed mission. No way was I gonna take his bait and race, especially with my partner in the car with me. Funny thing is I didn't even notice this guy as I was concentrating on the drive and the road ahead as we...

    Crap!! Sorry about that folks. Just fixed it. Forgot to take it off private after editing!

    Crazies on the M4!

    Some people are just out there to ruin your day! I was on my way to Windsor and this moron came out of nowhere. There were multiple times where it seemed he was going to end up killing someone or himself or both! As a side note I have now fixed my cam time as well as date!

    Buyer beware. Buying a CPO Tesla feels like a SCAM.

    WOW! I think OP was given the Tesla Founder's Edition as in " Found in a junkyard"!! Seriously reading this thread makes me wonder how Tesla not only dropped the ball in his case but refused to take responsibility until the very last moment when Elon took notice of it. It shouldn't have taken...

    Newbie Question/s

    Yes, the Tesla staff confirmed that yesterday and said she has put in the request for it. Maybe this is a good excuse for me to consider moving into my car since I have already ordered the Dreamcase! :p
  47. F

    Newbie Question/s

    That's interesting. Well I have ordered a mobile hotspot from Amazon with same-day delivery so will test it out for a few days and see if I get lucky otherwise will have to speak with Tesla again. Maybe take the car in for service for them to diagnose why I'm unable to receive updates. Chose...
  48. F

    Newbie Question/s

    That's exactly what they told me as well that they can see the updates failed a few times so I guess I will have to get a mobile hotspot and see if that does the trick.
  49. F

    Newbie Question/s

    So yesterday I called Tesla service and asked about when I would receive updates as I thought that Tesla pushes updates via their LTE but the Tesla rep advised me to make sure I have the car connected to Wifi in order to receive them. Now I don't have the option of being able to get my car...
