    Anyone had M3P brake discs replaced?

    20 Miles away. You thinking its the salt air ? Might be all the salt on our wintery roads (Aberdeenshire).

    Anyone had M3P brake discs replaced?

    So here are my MP3 20,000 Mile disks and pads which I had to have replaced. I asked for them from the service centre who were happy to set them aside for me. What does everyone think ? I’m going to leave regen off for a while with my new set. The “use them but don’t use them too much” advice...

    Anyone had M3P brake discs replaced?

    I agree. I actually think Tesla did not consider sufficiently the issues caused by regen effectively eliminating the use of brakes but that you really need them to stop occasionally.

    Anyone had M3P brake discs replaced?

    Would be happy to pay for long life pads.

    Anyone had M3P brake discs replaced?

    I had 4 TT’s before the MP3 and disks and pads were good for 30,000 miles and that was then being used well every day. I must drive like a granny 😂

    Anyone had M3P brake discs replaced?

    I use the car plenty, I just don’t’ use the brakes enough ! I just find it a bit strange that you have to change your pattern of driving intermittently to try and maintain brakes that you hardly use. I might see if my local garage guy can get Tesla parts and see if he can change them out at...

    Anyone had M3P brake discs replaced?

    2 Years Old and 20,000 miles. A bit gutted.

    Anyone had M3P brake discs replaced?

    I have just been told that I need new discs and pads. MP3, through lack of use, so no warranty. This is a real issue for Tesla’s. £1500 for the replacement. I did apply the proposed solution of switch of regen. and drive using the breaks every so often but that just did not work for me...

    Model 3 new tyres time - Vredstein Quadrac anyone?

    I have Quadracs (19”) as my winter tyre on my M3P and they are excellent. Snow and Ice performance is terrific (Aberdeenshire), wear is good and road noise low. I would use them all year round apart from the fact I really like my 20” wheels in the Summer.

    Screenwash

    Be careful. I blocked my M3P scooshers by putting too concentrated fluid in. All sorted by Tesla Aberdeen at no cost (great service). The technician there recommended Tesco own brand pre mixed, so as to avoid gunking up the tubes. Key message is get it ready mixed so the concentrations are...

    Low Brake Fluid Warning

    So it was low brake fluid from the factory as described in the posts above. Topped up and brakes checked by the excellent Aberdeen Tesla Service Centre. The TMC call it correctly again

    Low Brake Fluid Warning

    OK thanks chaps. My car is a 2019 model. I was just in it today and it is saying everything is fine (it felt fine). I’ll drive it agin today and if all good will cancel the appointment. I have been driving on low regen because of the weather and have been using the brakes hard to clean the...

    Low Brake Fluid Warning

    This just came up on my car. Booked into the Aberdeen service centre for a look. Is losing brake fluid a thing on Model 3’s

    After market headlights

    On a really dark night I put my front fog lights on as well. Not been flashed so far. Give it a shot.

    Scooshers Delivering Less Water

    Tesco not Tesla. The supermarket.

    Does the M3 need a Snow Mode?

    M3P in snowy Aberdeenshire. 19” BBS Alloys and All weather Cross Climate (Vreidstein) tyres have been frankly excellent. Low regen is critical, as is low temp washer fluid.

    Scooshers Delivering Less Water

    The Tesla service technician said it was better to buy the ready to use washer fluid as you then are less likely to over concentrate your mixture which can block the feeder tubes. He actually said the Tesco 5 litre ready to used stuff was very good .

    Torn Between Dual Motor LR and Performance [resolved]

    I have and M3P and my wife has a LRAWD. I would be quite happy with either and love them both. I think the LRAWD is the better value and all the car you will ever need.

    Scooshers Delivering Less Water

    So was booked in to the Aberdeen service centre today and they looked at my scooshers. Both wiper arms were blocked so Tesla replaced them free of charge. Great service, very nice people and it only took an hour. As per one of the previous posts the thing to do is use good quality washer...

    Scooshers Delivering Less Water

    You are welcome. A Scottish motoring term for screen washers (scooshers) Thanks to all for the good advice

    Scooshers Delivering Less Water

    Will try your suggestions. Thanks

    Scooshers Delivering Less Water

    So I have noticed of late that my M3P windscreen scooshers are delivering noticeably less water to the windscreen leaving them with streaks. My wife has a newer M3LR and her scooshers work like mine used to (plenty water delivered). Any suggestions for restoring their original performance ?

    Undertray Removal When Jacked Up On Pucks

    Might be. I’m just looking for him to coat anything that can rust with some protection.
  24. bjbrown

    Undertray Removal When Jacked Up On Pucks

    Appreciated. He can see what he can coat when he removes them. I have a M3 also and when it was on the ramp it did look a bit in need off some grease. I’ll take his word for it. Anything to make the car last longer.

    Thanks. We will see what he can coat to protect it.

    Undertray Removal When Jacked Up On Pucks

    My garage has suggested doing some pre-emptive protective greasing of the suspension etc. when my wife’s M3LR gets its winter tyres put on next week. So can the under tray on the car be removed when it is up on the lift and sitting on its hockey pucks ? If not I’ll just get him to grease the...

    Chrome Delete

    So probably not worth the bother. I hear you on buying a new one my M3P is going fine so I’ll be sticking with it for a good while.

    Chrome Delete

    I really like the Chrome delete look on the new M3’s. Can you get this done professionally after market. But to the same standard as a factory version ? Any good examples out there ?

    TPMS Trouble

    Thanks, it has sorted itself out today, all reading correctly.

    TPMS Trouble

    So got my winter wheels and tyres on yesterday. 19” BBS black (M3P) Second year of use. The low pressure warning came on rear right. Pumped it up to 41 PSI left it overnight. Low Pressure warning came on again today, checked the tyre pressure with my pump and no pressure loss. So is it the...

    Moving a Model 3 with no one inside

    I see you can get that for 3.5k now as a partial self driving option. Still too much for me for a clever trick to impress friends.

    Moving a Model 3 with no one inside

    Not denting my door would be a very good reason. If he really needs the car in neutral Tow Mode sounds like the way.

    You know I probably am over thinking things. Drive On Drive Off as the karate kid never said.

    OK great thanks. Sometimes this technology is just too clever for its own good.

    Moving a Model 3 with no one inside

    I’m getting a garage to put on my winter wheels. It’s a one man garage. The mechanic usually puts a car into neutral to push the car on the lift to then raise it. If you leave a model 3 it will automatically go into park when you get out. How can the mechanic keep my model 3 in Neutral to...

    Any tips on light scratch removal ?

    I think I may end up with a electric polisher to keep the black in tip top condition

    Any tips on light scratch removal ?

    My black M3P is coming up for a year old. There are a few light scratches around the boot and elsewhere. Any tips on the best way to polish them out ? Should I use coloured polish ? I want to avoid having a polished area looking different from the rest of the car. Any products to...

    M3 x 2 !!!

    You do ! I’m always amazed How different A red model 3 looks in different photos.

    M3 x 2 !!!

    Interesting comments from all. My wife sees the M3 as an Iphone with wheels which she just plugs in like her phone and she never has to go to a garage again. So she is delighted. No dirty petrol, oil or grease. Any damage is my or the insurers problem to worry about....

    Great Portable Router for M3

    This sounds good. I need a way to link to my wi-fi as my garage is too far way from my house. Will this solve my problem and how hard to set up is it ?

    M3 x 2 !!!

    Enjoy it whilst you can. Once she Has had a shot it will never be in the drive.

    M3 x 2 !!!

    Well the fact that I will no longer have to worry about my alloys was a bit of a factor. 18” Aeros for my better half

    M3 x 2 !!!

    So I have just ordered my second Model 3. Long Range AWD. Since I purchased my M3P my wife has not touched her Volvo. She calls it a tractor and hates it as much as she loves my Model 3, so another one has been ordered. Just a warning for folks out there, once your better half has a shot you...

    Ranger Service

    Thanks I will do just that
  47. bjbrown

    Ranger Service

    Has anyone had a Tesla Ranger out to Aberdeenshire ? My M3P has developed a knocking sound when the AirCon fans are on. I think would be a simple misalignment and easy to fix by a ranger. When I go to book an appointment it’s still asking me to go to Edinburgh. Probably not a necessary...

    Build quality

    I have had mine for 6/7 months now. Previous 20 years were Audi's and to be honest Tesla are 90% there. Now I might have been lucky and got a "good one", but I wash it most weeks and have not spotted any fit or finish issues. The M3 experience is so much more fun than an ICE car that I don't...

    Difference between Black and White Interiors.

    I have a M3P Black with White interior (pictured). The white is wearing well so far (7 Months). There has been a very faint blue transfer from my jeans on the drivers seat but the advice to use baby wipes works and it is restored to "as new". So far so good.
