    Issues after MCU 2 Upgrade

    Does anyone know if they remove the dash when they change the screen? I’ve realised my centre left air vent is now completely stuck and cannot be moved at all. It looks like it’s fully left. Would reinstalling the dash on top of this blocking the blades from being moved right? On the other...

    Interesting, is it literally just the removal of the dash so they replace both screens ?

    Issues after MCU 2 Upgrade

    Just picked up my car after the MCU 2 upgrade and a few issues are present. Buzzing / Crackles coming from the speaker in the roof just by the windscreen autopilot camera. It happens every 5 seconds or so, quite faint. Under the central arm rest where the USB / 12v is, there is a rattle on...

    Definitely dont worry, they are making plenty of blue cars on 20" - I thought white seats would be made in smaller quantities and harder to get, the aforementioned yes but the latter, no. Majority do order black for practical reasons. When I picked up my MY a few weeks ago also with white...

    @2020M3SR just curious if you've taken umbrage with the above posts discussing EDD's changing. Shouldn't these be "filed" in the Orders to Delivery thread? Dont want to burst a blood vessel now do we? 😘

    Oh well, you know, just thought it might be useful for all current pickups and future pickups and part of a discussion with people I've been sharing information with in Q2. If you live your life with such obedience and order, I'll say a little prayer for you, such a shame you put yourself...

    Anyone else really tempted to just go and sit in their car right now?

    Does it come in hours after you parked? If so and it’s not cabin heat over protect and it’s not your car waking up after sensing your phone, then must be a bug. Your AC will run for a period of time after you park up, just to clear/dry out the ducts to prevent them getting smelly

    Thank you for this, really appreciate it. I tried to do some research last night on this. From what I found, Tesla use 270Wh/m for the rated consumption. But this is the consumption including charging losses and heat loss. In reality it has absolutely no bearing on daily use (for reference at...

    Wales to introduce 20mph default speed limit

    I agree with this. Thankfully where I live lots of children still act like children and play outside, running around, on bikes, scooters, go carts etc and not glued and submerged in their phones. Whilst the limit is 30 mph, residents have put up their own 20 mph stickers on lamppost and...

    Wales to introduce 20mph default speed limit

    Coupled with the zero tolerance policy Wales has towards speeding, this will be very profitable for them when enforced. I think its ridiculous to implement a blanket 20mph limit. I do however agree with 20mph limits on housing estates, busy town centres, residential streets and outside schools...

    Welcome and congrats. You'll love the car. As for timings, you will certainly have it before then, I'm pretty sure of that. Its very likely to be End Nov/Dec. If you are extremely lucky, end of Sep but that is virtually impossible unless Tesla skew a bigger portion of exports vs mainland...

    Anyone know what the fixed wh/m is for Uk cars, the one that Tesla uses to display the remaining range in miles. I’m aware that it isn’t really relevant and I always use the trip planner for long journeys, I’m just curious. Actually whilst we are on this topic, I have been left amazed by its...

    Relax. Mine was like this. Rarely changed, when it did it was bad news. All that matters is what happens to your date once a known ship has departed, reached the Suez Canal and 7-10days after. If it doesn't change then its a waiting game for the next ship to depart. You could be showing Dec...

    Yes indeed, thats what I was after. Same look as the stock 19 but just in black. I think these will do the trick. I got the idea from a YouTuber who masked off the stock caps and painted them two tone black and they looked good. It is a faff, but then I found these posted on the FB forums...

    I've ordered these from AliExpress. I have my MY LR on lease and saw no need to pay for the wheel upgrade when I intended to buy my own 20" wheel set I could own and use the 19" in winter. However, now the car is here, I'm ok with the 19" wheels. No doubt they will look better in black. So...

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    Are you talking about the Uk fully opening up next month? I can’t see how that’s a sensible move. We’ve had multiple instances of blocked bays. I’ve just the other day showing an ipace and Porsche both charging and taking up 5 bays because of positioning. SUC use will increase dramatically...

    Who’s hoping for Q3 delivery?

    I'm certain you will get yours. I ordered on the 7th of March and I was on the last boat (that arrived 2 days before Q2 end). I suspect March, April, May and possibly some of the June MY orders will get matched in Q3, its going to be a big quarter. Sadly I think M3 orders after end of April...

    New delivery MY differences

    I dont know anything about the parts used but I can say I have zero issues with the way this new MYLR rides. I also can't help but think if it was any softer it would feel a bit like a pudding in corners at higher speed. It already feeds a little loose in the corners. I know its a lot taller...

    It should get almost 1 ship per week for the last 4 - 6 weeks of the quarter. This quarter it might be on the higher side so almost 1 ship per week for 5 weeks starting Aug 17th until last week of Sep. We shall see. Approx 4-5k cars per ship.

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

    Well, if you are matched to a car, you will have a VIN assigned (hidden in your account) when the ship reaches the Suez Canal (typically). You probably won't receive an SMS regarding the match until the ship is 1 week from port, thats approx a further 10-14 days after the Suez Canal. Caveat...

    Great time with 1ft rollout. I hadn't realised Tesla had been cheeky again claiming the 4.8sec with 1ft. They did this on the performance models way back and the standard was advertised without rollout.

    I've received my ALD order last week. The process in the end was very smooth, but there was a lot of radio silence and unclear messages in the process. ALD will literally do nothing (but this isn't a bad thing, they can't actually do anything) until they receive a VIN against your RN number...

    Do I report issues from delivery via the app as a service request? Only issue is bubble in ppf but doing so they want me to drive up a service Center, can’t select mobile service.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    She’s very happy. Still getting used to it despite us having a model s. As I said before, build is exceptional. Car feels very tight. No issues, suspension is easily fine for us, despite 46psi delivery pressure. SOC was 48%. 100% is estimated 330 miles. Screen did freeze once when I was...

    Model Y UK Delivery

    I agree with this. I think the plastics, speakers and suspension might be based on the local supply chain. Good idea for the c pillar however.

    No 19s, but the pressures are at 46psi. Even then the ride is totally fine

    Can’t quite see the plate but think that was our white one in the middle. I totally agree, I’m thoroughly impressed with the build quality. It is spot on. I too have a bubble in the ppf but other than that. Quality. Drives so well. Jealous of the fit vs my older model s. This is for my wife...

    Local market has seen enormous growth. They will need at least 120,000 cars, if not 150,000 to satisfy demand. Exports to Japan, Australia and NZ are also due this quarter. It isn't anything to worry about, considering output has been 2-2.5k per day for all of June, soon to be 3-4k for all...

    I suspect week 2 or 3 of July. Shanghai shutdown for retooling before massive scale. There will have enough cars for export to fill an entire carrier every 2 days once it re-opens.

    2 EV Household - what else you got?

    M.S. P90DL M.Y. LR (hopefully picking up on the 30th). We have 2 Tesla GEN3 wall chargers - on software load balancing on the same 32amp cable. Sadly its just a faff to run another cable as the garage is too far from the house.

    Insurance

    MY insurance is insane. I'm paying £125 until Sep, then I think its going to be about £550, but thats with a multicar discount, standalone its £850! My MS P90DL which is stupid fast is only £385 - £440 ish depending on the year.

    Random delay when charging - New 2022 charge point regs now in force

    Sounds a like an archaic reactive solution when they should be focussing on adaptive solutions. If they know, using recent usage data that the demand at 1am is x then they should supply enough power for that moment with the ability to scale back immediately if it isn't needed. Otherwise I...

    And the M3 wheels look even better than the Y wheels without caps. I wish they had made the Y wheels dark grey as standard like the aeros.

    Model Y UK Delivery

    According to a test between all different wheel configs, including hub caps on vs off, running with them off causes about 2% range loss, approx 7 miles max over the 100% battery. On a long journey, its about 3-4 miles max, its not worth thinking about every again its so irrelevant. I'll be...
