    How I Recovered Half of my Battery's Lost Capacity

    Superb post, so pleased i found it. My SR+ has covered 7700 mile in 9 months and the range has dropped from 234 to 212, nobody could explain why ... Tesla said it must have been a software update that has caused some cells to misreport their capacity, yet every time there's a software update my...

    Wiki UK and Ireland Supercharger Site News

    No I was down the end closest to the main building, there was an X & S sharing a stall nearest to the exit road but i was alone. I hadn't set my sat nav to goto Woodall particularly, it was set to goto the one in Barnsley but the M1 on Wednesday night was a write off so i decided to come off...

    Wiki UK and Ireland Supercharger Site News

    Charged my new SR+ at Woodall on Wednesday after collecting at Birmingham (yeah i had to double back from North to South) and was getting 60kw, battery was warm and i only had 90 mile range left so i was expecting it to be quicker. Then yesterday i charged at the Camponile in Washington, wasn't...

    Wiki UK and Ireland Supercharger Site News

    Charged my SR+ at Woodall yesterday, it’s first time having just driven up from Birmingham. Battery would have been at temperature, I wasn’t sharing with anyone else, I had 90 mile range left but it only charged at 61kw. I was expecting a bit quicker.

    Delivery Text !!

    im not buying, I’m leasing and usually lease cars get delivered. In this case it isn’t and it’s not exactly on my doorstep either, it’s a 4 hour drive home which is also eating into my 12k mileage allowance. It does make a difference

    Delivery Text !!

    I emailed deliverygb, phoned Tesla direct and contacted Leaseplan. Managed to get my collection swapped from Heathrow on 6th to Birmingham on same date. What’s the deal on supercharging on collection day? I seem to remember reading it was free? Is that just one charge or any supercharge on...

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    Consider myself lucky in some respects, ordered via Leaseplan on 20th Sept, pickup on 6th Nov. Only problem is collection from Heathrow and that’s 300 mile from me

    Delivery Text !!

    I’ve also just received a pickup text, 6th Nov at Heathrow! Feel a bit of a fraud since I only ordered around 20th sept via Leaseplan. However Leaseplan said Tesla would allocate a delivery centre closest to me and Heathrow is about the furthest it could be from me. Nearly 300 mile trip + it’s...

    Green number plates

    Would be much better with a green outline on the plate, or a green stripe. Not a full on hideous green plate

    Using a referral code for lease or company car schemes

    Leaseplan told me I could supply them with a referral code, so I did. Either they haven’t done it or it doesn’t work because I have nothing showing at all

    More Uk-bound Ships?

    Better not be, Leaseplan said Oct/Nov. At the moment my current car is carrying equity but that it diminishing the longer it takes

    More Uk-bound Ships?

    Nothing here yet either, sept 23rd order though so might not be on the Pioneer but I was hoping

    More Uk-bound Ships?

    I don’t understand how there’s inventory hit the website. I mean there’s a white/black SR+ there which is basic spec, that’s what I’m waiting for. Why wouldn’t that get allocated to me or one of several others I guess are waiting for the same?

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    That’s the issue, it seems like you get about 3 days notice for delivery

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    The lack of notice period for collection is really bothering me. I have a current car to sell with outstanding finance, also have my private plate on it (plate can be done online and doesn’t take long but then there’s an insurance faff on). Dealer I bought the car from said they’ll buy it back...

    More Uk-bound Ships?

    Is it safe to assume if I don’t have a hidden vin or any contact from lease company/tesla that I don’t have a car allocated from the Grand Dahlia?

    Electric Blue Chargers

    I noticed there’s 2 brand new Electric Blue chargers about to be commissioned in the Metro Oasis carpark at the Metrocentre, they’ve been installed in association with NECA. Each charger has a CHAdeMO & a CCS cable. Had a quick look at the signage the other day, it seemed to suggest needing to...

    Tyres on SR+. All weather?

    Anyone who says we dont need winter tyres in this country clearly hasn't driven with winter tyres to appreciate the difference. I currently drive a ICE RWD car with 420bhp, on summer tyres in winter it'll kill you. Summer tyres generally dont perform well below 7 degrees, the tread stiffens up...

    Edinburgh SR+ pickup, minor body issues, impressions and other thoughts

    Although it slightly bothers me that a 40k car doesnt have something as simple as front foglights (which get fitted almost as standard to everything these days). I don't actually think i've ever used front fogs on any of my cars ... plenty of people seem to use them as additonal lights though...

    My order is also SR+ white/black, Leaseplan told me delivery is likely mid to late October. Bizarre

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    Apologies for the noob questions but I received my email from Tesla with the Reservation Number on it (I’m leasing via LeasePlan). My account with Tesla is active now as well. What happens next? The email has a list of links to click, one of which is Confirm Delivery Location, if I click on that...

    Business mileage expense rates?

    Not quite true, company doesn't have to pay you anything, they could just get you to claim the 45p via P87 or SA at the end of the tax year.

    Business mileage expense rates?

    DVLA have set the rate at 4p per mile for electric vehicles. Our company hasn't updated their car policy for anyone with an EV so when my M3 arrives i can claim 18p per mile. Current car is costing me 27p per mile.

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    I did try OctopusEV first but they were slow to reply & I didn’t get the information I wanted. Leaseplan were about £30 per month cheaper with better mileage as well. Shame because I’m with Octopus Energy and they’re brilliant.

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    Just a note for anyone thinking of leasing, i'm about to order via LeasePlan today and they've informed me (this is reflected in the price i've been given) that Tesla are honoring the old price until 27th Sept. Anyone have recent experience with LeasePlan? their reviews on TrustPilot are pretty...

    Model 3 SR+ Lease UK - beginners questions

    I'm in the same boat as you OP, looking to get into a M3 SR+ so can't quite decide which route to go down. I've leased, owned & PCH before so know the ins & outs but Tesla seem to dictate and control prices in this instance. I can't afford one outright so it'll either be PCH or Lease. I've had a...
