    For Octopus customers

    That statement was almost certainly part of a prepared standard script rather than them making it up on the hoof. It may well only apply to non smart meter users though I guess, as agree it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense if you have a smart meter.

    For Octopus customers

    Having just started the process of switching via twitter I was told this actually: "Something to bear in mind as well is that you get charged for the monthly average of all the daily readings, not on a day-to-day basis."

    [UK] 2023.2.x

    For me, the app release notes mention the auto steering wheel heater (which I can confirm works well) and the in-car release notes just detail the new Sentry headlight behaviour (which I haven't tested).

    I have the BASENOR ones, which have a pocket in them. They look very good.

    Home Assistant Integration(s)

    I don't use HA (I have Domoticz) but I also use TeslaMates MQTT functionality which works perfectly.

    Wiki Everything you wanted to know about Intelligent Octopus But Were Afraid To Ask

    I plugged it in and switched the charging off in the Tesla app. Then IO scheduled a charge and switched charging back on which it shouldn't do away from home. Probably should have been clearer that it's also scheduled in the Tesla app to start charging at midnight on their economy 7.

    It's more that it's charging at my in-laws and costing them a fortune Thanks, yes I have done this now.

    Wiki Everything you wanted to know about Intelligent Octopus But Were Afraid To Ask

    First time staying away from home with IO and on plugging in at my parents in law (which is 180 miles away from our home) IO has scheduled lots of charge slots and started charging the car... I thought this wasn't meant to happen? Any thoughts?

    There is an option marked 'Streaming API' in the TeslaMate settings. This should be enabled

    Octopus Energy, including Intelligent and go

    In case it helps people who have Home Assistant, Domoticz or similar, I have a home automation system set up which can tell the car to stop charging via the API and I use some code another forum member sent me to read in the current unit cost from Intelligent Octopus. This means if the car is...

    It will likely give you some more slots shortly.

    If it's scheduled in the Octopus app it should be off peak.

    [UK] 2022.44

    I was driving on .1 this morning and they were going haywire. First time they've done this for me. So not sure it's a .3 thing. Sun was low in the sky which I suspect was the cause.

    Rear Defrost Model Y

    Just went into service mode and mine said it wasn't enabled, so have turned it on. The heating element in the rear window seems to be divided into a lower and upper section I put defrost on and the bottom section of the window heats up (I've no idea whether it was before I turned it on in...

    Wiki Everything you wanted to know about Intelligent Octopus But Were Afraid To Ask

    Thanks. I went out a bit earlier to unplug/re-plug and no luck, so have just bumped the charge limit up by 5% to see if that makes any difference.

    Wiki Everything you wanted to know about Intelligent Octopus But Were Afraid To Ask

    I've just made the switch to IO and completed the test charge. I'm now waiting for my first set of slots to appear in the app. It's a couple of hours after 5pm now which is when the app tells me it will provide the slots from. The car has been plugged in all afternoon and is currently asleep...

    Some notes having just popped.to the car... Media controls look useful, and so does ability to set fan speed on auto.

    Touch up paint repair + lesson to be learnt

    My young daughter opened the door of my MY into the garage wall last week. She's only 3 so I can't blame her, but was a bit annoyed at the wife (for leaving the kid with an unsupervised car door!) and myself, as I'd stuck carpet up on the other side which is closer to the car when parked. There...

    Q3 collections, new owners tales and experiences

    I have a Sept MY from China and can confirm internal specs are different to the German MY in the video, i.e. no extra seat stitching, lower carpetted area in the boot, thick front windows.

    Any views on Q3 Model Y suspension setup or differences from Q2 so far?

    I came from a 2013 Prius to the MY and find the MY much more composed over potholes/speedbumps despite having firmer suspension. The Prius was quite soft and rolled from side to side, whereas the MY is perhaps more 'severe' but on balance handles things much better I would say. I was quite...

    Help with cruise control etc

    You can release the stalk immediately. You just need to enable the incidators, not hold the stalk down. Or at least this works for me...

    Help with cruise control etc

    For auto lane changes I have found that pushing the indicator stalk part-way down (i.e. same as the 3-flashes option when driving normally) followed by applying minor turning force to the steering wheel is enough to make it change lanes.

    I ended up walking from the station as I was massively early. Saved me some money 😁. Mine also had condensation in rear lights as did others on the forecourt. Cleared up quickly.

    Hey. I have TeslaMate set up and running on a Raspberry Pi. Grafana dashboards are working fine. I've been trying to get TeslaMate to publish information to an MQTT broker to be picked up in NodeRed. I have a broker running already outside of docker on the RPi (which is used for my Domoticz...

    Lessons learned picking the Tesla...

    Picked up my MY today. 🙂 Small dull section of paint above right rear window, but they buffed it out at the SC. No other issues noted. All seems well put together. Very happy with handling, ride and acceleration! Kids very excited as was I ! 😁

    UK 2022 Orders to Delivery inc the shipping thread for posts with no shipping news

    I was advised by Tesla to call by phone to set up insurance as customer service can enter registration manually. I don't have my reg yet, so haven't tried this though.

    Shanghai July Shutdown - any changes?

    How did you work out your build date? I've put my VIN into Tesla Info but the most recent VIN they list is approx 30k numbers/cars before mine and made on the 28th June.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    Looking for some advice as just had this via Tesla chat: "It is also important to note that we only complete registration with the DVLA on delivery day itself. So you will need to call insurers for pricing as online quote tools wont recognise the plate until after delivery day". Is this...

    That time of year again.... insurance renewal

    For me, compulsory excess is coming out at £300 with Churchill. £250 with Direct Line (but my quote is over £100 more with them).

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    This rather depends though on whether they would be able to safely manoeuvre. If you signal for 30 seconds but can't switch lanes because there is not a space to move into this is different from signalling for 30 seconds because you have forgotten to turn your signal off. My point was that the...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    Not sure I agree with this. Highway code says "Signals warn and inform other road users, including pedestrians (download ‘Signals to other road users’), of your intended actions" and that you should " give clear signals in plenty of time, having checked it is not misleading to signal at that...

    Q2 Collections - new owners thread

    I have a factory fitted towbar (although appears to be some debate as to whether this is actually fitted in China) and confirmed VIN (see sig for details) for my MY which implies they are shipping 'towbar spec' Ys. I'm hoping that all works as expected although prepared for it not to be given...

    Mine was changed within a few days. If yours hasn't been changed in your specification online then I think it means it hasn't been included. I personally wouldn't be changing spec now with cars incoming!

    Recommended EV chargers in UK ?

    Recommended EV chargers in UK ?

    I've been considering a Zappi, but we only have a small (2.7kW) array, so I'm not sure it's worth it as even if charging at 6 amps I'm not sure I'd get much use of the solar, especially if teamed with an overnight tariff. Also, how well does Zappi play with Intelligent Octopus? Would it...
