    Updated design?

    I suspect they are hiding new sensors/cameras - rather than new bumper or light designs

    Window Tinting M3

    Hi, We had the side windows and section above driver/front passenger tinted with 50% tints. Did not bother with section above rear passengers/rear window area. We keep car in garage at home and always try to park it in shade or covered car park when away from home. If we need to leave it outside...

    Taken 2021 Model Y in to service center 4 times in last month for "Powertrain needs servicing,", still unresolved - Anyone on the other side of this?

    Hi, We just had this fault yesterday afternoon - “Powertrain needs service” message came on screen and I was limited to 90 km/h top speed! On way to service centre this morning - car was all normal! Took it to our local Tesla service centre in Abu Dhabi this morning and they diagnosed either a...

    Teslas future looks bleak tainted

    Sadly - the majority of Tesla stock owners are simply there to quickly buy & sell to make a quick buck - rather than to long term invest in an innovative & disruptive technology company. Tesla stock has replaced cryptocurrencies as a way for people to try and get rich quick!

    Teslas future looks bleak tainted

    Even if Tesla don’t sell another car - they still will make more than $2 billion per year from their Supercharger network! This will grow even more as they allow other manufacturers cars to use their charger. What other car company sells you the car plus the “fuel” to power it! Tesla is the car...

    Teslas future looks bleak tainted

    This will be last weeks news soon! Within a few months it will all be forgotten by those who know now. Many more people won’t even know the history of Teslas pricing policy - they will just look at car prices at the time they are looking to buy a car. If they are happy with the price at that...

    Tesla replacing ultrasonic sensors with Tesla Vision

    Took delivery on 1st November. Car was actually built 09/22 according to door sticker. Has a 2023 VIN number and is registered as a 2023 car on my registration document. Was at a supercharger in Abu Dhabi yesterday next to somebody who received their Model Y at the same time. This was also a...

    Tesla replacing ultrasonic sensors with Tesla Vision

    Hi, We have a 2023 MY Shanghai built Model 3 Performance - with USS. Interestingly - I reverse the car into my garage and the front of the car is just a few feet from the automatic roller door. When I get in the car and put on my seatbelt and put it into drive - the screen is showing an object...

    Found a 22 M3 LR .... Something is up.

    Maybe a dragon burped on it and accidentally burnt it with their fire breath? Run for the hills!

    Model 3 turn signal inconsistency - pain

    Hi, Until this latest update - with my M3P - a light tap of the indicator stalk would get you three blinks of that direction (along with the camera image on the screen). I used this more often for quick overtakes on the motorway - as a full press was often hard to cancel - you end up pushing too...

    Model 3 turn signal inconsistency - pain

    Hi, My M3P updated to the new software today and I just drove from Abu Dhabi to Dubai (and back again). Before I left home - I made sure that the Auto Cancel indicator option was checked and then I set off. On the motorway you now push the indicator stalk gently and whereas before a gentle push...

    Tesla FSD 10.69.3.1 going to wide release now

    Hi, We are allowed up to 50% tint in the UAE - so this is what we have put on our M3P, We selected a high quality tint with high heat rejection - to save battery power for AC on hot summer days! Cheers Steve

    Tesla FSD 10.69.3.1 going to wide release now

    Hi, I just read that latest version of FSD Beta software can now detect certain AP defeat devices! This should make the streets a bit safer, hopefully! Cheers Steve

    Tesla replacing ultrasonic sensors with Tesla Vision

    Hi, That video shows that even when he covered all the forward facing cameras - the car was still able to drive on FSD. Did he forget that the car has GPS and therefore should know where it is on a map? This means it should know where the roads are - but not be able to see objects, pedestrians...

    Model 3 - UAE Orders

    No - to be honest I find their prices very high! It came from a company in Dubai that advertises on Instagram (there are a few in UAE now) Their Instagram handle is tesla_ae2022

    Model 3 - UAE Orders

    HI, We already changed the 1970’s wood dash and front door handle trim for matte carbon fiber! Looks a bit more modern - I think! Cheers Steve

    Model 3 - UAE Orders

    Sounds very familiar! Now you need to pickup the number plates - we collected ours from the big traffic department at Muroor - from inside the big silver ITC (or ICT!) building - not the building attached to the test lanes. Plates are collected from just inside on right hand side - they were...

    Model 3 - UAE Orders

    So many people we know are waiting for cars here - they seem to be pretty mercenary on their payment terms! No payment on their terms - your car gets assigned to somebody else in the queue - perhaps!!!

    Model 3 - UAE Orders

    Hi, After a few days driving in the UAE - one important thing that I found is that the speedometer is 100% accurate! On our BMWX3M40i you set 143 on cruise control to do 139 real speed. If you did that on the Tesla - a lot of tickets will come your way! 139 setting is 139 real speed! The...

    Model 3 - UAE Orders

    HI, We had same email as you with the vague & conflicting instructions! This all happened over past few weeks and we got our M3P delivered by truck from Jebel Ali to Abu Dhabi on Monday. We financed our car through Emirates NBD and paid our 20% deposit about 2 weeks before we got the car. We...

    Tesla replacing ultrasonic sensors with Tesla Vision

    Hi, We just received our 2023 M3P in Abu Dhabi. It is a Shanghai built car with a 2023 VIN number - the door plate shows it was made 09/22. It has USS fitted - that was a surprise! Car was ordered on 20th April and it was also supplied with a charger (in a nice black storage case) as well as a...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Car was made in Shanghai factory (as we are in Abu Dhabi) - it has a 2023 VIN number but on the door sticker it states that it was manufactured in 09/22. We ordered on 20th April this year but car was still supplied with charging cable set in a neat black carry case and a big blue charging cable...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    Hi, We just had a call from the delivery driver telling us that he is bringing our new M3P from Dubai to our house in Abu Dhabi now! ETA - 1 hour before we get our new car (that was ordered back in April!) After inspecting the car thoroughly - 1st job is to fit the carbon fibre covers over the...

    2022 Shipping Movements

    Hi, We have just received our VIN number and our VCC issued for our M3P that has arrived at Jebel Ali port in Dubai. The VIN is LRW3E7EL3PCxxxxxx This shows that car was made in Shanghai, is a 2023 model and is a dual motor performance (with hairpin motor windings - whatever that means!) So -...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    HI, Just got our VIN number today! Car ordered in April - so a painful wait - especially as we sold last car in May! VIN number shows that it is a 2023 car, built in China with hairpin performance motors (whatever that means!) Cheers Steve

    2022 Shipping Movements

    Hi, We are in Abu Dhabi waiting for a Model 3 Performance that was ordered in April. Our delivery date window was updated yesterday to 21st to 31st October!

    Tesla Radar Speculation

    Hi, We have a Model 3 Performance with Enhanced Auto Pilot on order since April. Living in Abu Dhabi means that our car is on a ship from China and is due imminently. I have been told that it is the latest 2023 model - so likely without USS. My theory - ands it all mine is as follows:- The 2023...

    Tesla replacing ultrasonic sensors with Tesla Vision

    I guess people could still fit aftermarket ultrasonic sensor system - although that would potentially ruin look of bumpers and costs extra to fix something that Tesla just broke! We just got the email from Tesla that our M3P has been allocated to us - so expect this not to have USS. For me, the...

    10k review (M3LR).

    Hi, We are awaiting delivery of a new M3P and I am keenly reading great reviews - such as this one! - along with discussions on charging strategy and battery life. We tend to buy our cars new and keep then for 3 to 4 years and within the manufacturers warranty. For this reason and because we...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    HI, We are in Abu Dhabi, UAE - so cars for this country come from Shanghai plant. We know about the COVID shutdown of Shanghai plant, reduced output after restart & recent shutdown to increase production levels! Its the fact they are advertising delivery times for new orders sooner than ours...

    Model 3 Performance Waiting Room

    We ordered a white M3 Performance on 20th April with a forecast date of August 2022. Since order was placed delivery has been pushed back and is now showing a window of Nov 6 - Dec 21. Whilst this is annoying - we can manage with 1 car and occasional hire cars when 2 are needed. However - what...
