    Roadster 3.0

    My Roadster 2.5 is back with its new PEM and 3.0 battery. Apart from a new seal, it all looks original. Not entirely sure what the range is - though it doesn't matter too much (at all, actually) in Hong Kong. BTW, it's for sale... 2011 Tesla R80 3.0 Roadster Sport | For Sale

    Roadster 3.0

    I’m in Hong Kong. My PEM and a battery leaf gave up in May 2019. I decided to upgrade rather than repair, and have just received a message saying they are ready to ship the battery to HK. They cannibalised my battery for other Roadsters.

    List of Workshops for Scratches, Dents, Repainting

    Model X panel repair recommendations anyone? My Model X in an altercation with a truck - passenger side rear quarter damaged. Took it to my usual shop, Mandarin Auto in Tuen Mun, but they said they couldn't help with the X - that the rear bumper needed replacing, and they didn't have the tools...

    2017 FRT Renewal

    One reason for the growth in private car ownership is the cap on new taxi and bus licenses. If people can't get public transport they'll buy private cars. We need more (ideally low emission) buses and taxis. Presently, Uber is our only hope for relieving congestion.

    HK: Model X Deposit date - confirmation - Sequence # - expected delivery

    My DS tells me the first batch arrived last week and is being type-approved. Said likely available before CNY. I'm trading in my MS, but will retain the registration number, which will take a few days, so expect to receive my X after CNY.

    I agree with @garethmcchau - wheels are essentially disposable!

    Wall Connector powered by 13A wall socket

    Your main circuit board should have a few spare slots, and, as suggested above, you could ask your electrician to run a separate cable for your charger - I can't imagine that would be a very large additional fee above the existing charge for wiring in your charger, and far cheaper than burning...

    Showroom Model X in HK

    Golf clubs length should fit across the width of the frunk. The salesman assured me it will fit golf clubs. I don't play golf, so can't comment. BTW, Overall the car looks similar to a BMW X6 on the outside - but with lots more space inside...

    Showroom Model X in HK

    I'm general production reservation #9. Saw the X's yesterday, and ordered this morning. Salesman reckoned the car should be here early next year. The Tesla showroom is all blacked out with a salesman standing on the step like a speakeasy. They have two cars - a red Signature with white 7 seat...

    HK: Model X Deposit date - confirmation - Sequence # - expected delivery

    I'm production series reservation #9 - I placed my deposit September 2012 - and I received a 'Configure Model X' link today. I've mentioned a little about HK prices in a post in the 'Showroom Model X in HK' - I'll leave it to the moderator to recommend which thread (if any) is best for that...

    Showroom Model X in HK

    Alas unable to make the demonstration Sunday as stuck in Korea by technical problem with Korean Airlines 747. Today received a 'Configure my Model X' link. More or less maxed out P90D with ludicrous speed upgrade (HK$78,000), metallic paint, 7 seats, leather seats & 22" wheels is HK$1,154,300 -...

    Showroom Model X in HK

    Thanks for that! I shall take my tape measure. I was under the impression that the S and X were built on the same 'platform' and therefore would be the same width - the S is certainly wide enough - hard to imagine the X *needs* to be wider. I spend a few thousand dollars every year repairing the...

    Whispbar Roof Rack + Cargo Box

    Hey Titus! It looks good - though I agree with you on colours - body colour would look best in my opinion. Looks as if you have mounted it in the middle of the car, rather than on the kerbside, which will make it more of a stretch to load and unload, but I'm assuming it's comfortable for you. My...

    Showroom Model X in HK

    I'm an early reservation holder for the Model X. Just had a call from Tesla announcing that a LHD Model X has arrived in Hong Kong and will be available for viewing, initially by reservation holders by appointment, in Repulse Bay, from tomorrow until 6 August. No test drives planned at this...

    Restrictions on Hong Kong Model S spec

    Scientific studies show that speaking to a passenger is less likely to result in an accident than speaking to a third party on the telephone - even a hand-free. The reason hasn't been 'proven' but the theory is that a passenger understands the driver is multitasking, and does not expect the...

    Restrictions on Hong Kong Model S spec

    Hong Kong Free Press picks up the story: Only in Hong Kong: Gov't forces Tesla to remove calendar app from cars | Hong Kong Free Press I commented on the HKFP website. I'm with the Transport Department. I'm sure my comment will infuriate many on this forum. Anyone who has personally tried and...

    Restrictions on Hong Kong Model S spec

    Harbour Times carries a brief report on this: Transport Department forces Tesla to remove Calendar app I confess I'm in the "It's distracting" camp - I'm pretty sure that if I had anything beyond a map on the screen I'd be looking at it. Tesla should abandon the big iPad and give us a decent...

    Meeting Tesla HK Bus Development Mgr on May 13.......

    I think Tesla could allow the car to unlock the supercharger cable once charging was complete - perhaps showing a single steady green light to alert other drivers, who could then unplug the car and plug in their car - assuming there is space to park within reach of the cable?

    Meeting Tesla HK Bus Development Mgr on May 13.......

    One problem is installing charging points in the *best* parking spots e.g. ground floor or near the mall entrance that all the drivers want. Then one has a fight between EVs and ICE's for these premium spots. Far better solution is to electrify the *worst* parking spots - then ICEs (and EVs that...

    Model 3 reservations in store in HK on 31 March?

    Just received my email and paid my deposit. 24 hours and probably hundreds of reservations behind Mark WJ, but I was not sure I *needed* this car - however it may well provide all the carrying capacity I do need at half the price of a Model S, be much easier to park (save on body repair bills)...

    List of Workshops for Scratches, Dents, Repainting

    I went to Mandarin Auto Services in Tuen Mun on the recommendation of my neighbour's driver, who had had his Model S repaired there. I was happy with the result. They repaired/repainted 5 panels and reattached the rear under tray for 10K. www.mauto.com.hk

    Model 3 reservations in store in HK on 31 March?

    I attempted to reserve online yesterday just after the unveiling (though before watching it, as the video was very slow to load). I was informed I'd receive email confirmation within 48 hours. It's not quite 24 hours yet, but certainly no email so far...

    Idea for Tesla - Tesla Valet Charging Service

    I wonder if it is technically possible to run multiple supercharger cables from a single power source? If so, it could charge the vehicles in the order in which they plugged in - no need to move cars around - but will require some longer cables - which will be expensive - but probably cheaper...

    Tracking P85D delivery to Hong Kong

    Hi Dennis Thanks for the clarification - I've spotted a few more since - it's very strange to a Britisher that people can drive around *without* a licence plate... In Raymond Chandler's novels Philip Marlowe could learn the name of the owner of a vehicle by reading the licence paper on the...

    Hong Konger visits Tesla Factory...

    In San Francisco & Palo Alto, so arranged a visit to the Tesla factory, via the nice people at Tesla HK. Alas, no photos allowed inside, so only these attached of the 'public' areas. The kids are standing in front of a poster of the production line in the lobby, not the actual production line...

    Tracking P85D delivery to Hong Kong

    Slighltly off topic, but here's a P85D in Palo Alto... I'm in Palo Alto for a week. I thought we had quite a few Teslas in Central, but this place wins - no surprise really. This P85D was parked outside my hotel. It seems to be a Tesla company car - delivery plates or similar, but seems to be in...

    I hate people that park in EV spaces!!!

    One ICE blocking not one, but two, EV spots in the old Star Ferry Car Park. I complained to management and they made phone calls - not because of blocking the EV spot, but taking two parking spots. Thanks YONNICE!...

    [On-Going] Model S-friendly & Best Car Park List

    Murray Road 32A I parked at Murray Road last week and can confirm 32A & 31km/hr charge rate as recorded by my Tesla iPhone app. The spaces are standard width for Government car parks - but there is plenty of room - for the time being - in the EV bays as there is usually only one EV for 3 spots...

    News: first Model S crashed in HK

    I've no idea what happened in this case, but we all know it is very easy to be going very fast in a Model S and then hard to get it stopped - it's heavy, overpowered and underbraked. Be careful!

    Model S road sightings in Hong Kong

I understand Secretary for the Environment KS Wong has a Leaf - but no charger at his home - he...
