    Rolec or PodPoint ?

    Just had my PodPoint installed this morning. 3 weeks from paying to install (Hampshire). Fitter was good, happy with everything with the install but the only frustrating this is that I can't control the charging start and stop times from the unti or app. I was led to believe I could. I know I...

    One week old M3 and scratched the alloys...

    Well I have gone and done it now too! On the same wheel! Just as well I didn't give my hubby a hard time when he did it... Tight roads with parked cars and tall kerbs are not our friend :(

    He may take some comfort in knowing he is not alone! He has been driving for years and never done this before. We will have a go at the DIY fix and hope that it doesn't happen again too soon. Thanks as always for your input!

    I could cry... My husband has managed to catch the edge of one of the alloys, basically the only part not covered by the aero. Does anyone know how much it would be to repair the damage?

    Logging paint issue on the app

    We literally just picked up our new model 3. We did a full inspection and found a small paint chip. They asked us to log it on the Tesla app and it would be fixed. In our excitement we didn't check how to do that. Has anyone else done this? Do we put it through the "schedule service" option on...

    Alternative to Andersen EV Charger

    Ah, they didn't mention this in the Tesla store. They just told us we can buy a charger and the government grant would knock £500 off. Looking back they didn't specifically say "Tesla charger" we just assumed that was what they were referring to. Thanks!
