    [UK] 2023.2.x

    Just installed 223.2.12 and all my settings were lost (phone access) and now my car thinks it's parked at Tesla HQ in California, and it's apparently 1:40am.

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

    Scratch that. My Go renewal price has jumped to match. So I guess Intelligent is the way to go, then.

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

    My Go expires next month. Being quoted 35p/kWh peak to renew Go, vs 40p/kWh peak for Intelligent. I don't think the extra off-peak hours will make up for the higher peak cost of Intelligent. I very rarely need more than 4 hours of car charging, so I'm going to stick with Go.

    I was hoping "Remain connected to WiFi in Drive" meant in your driveway. Mine keeps forgetting the Wifi password every few days.

    Just been invoiced 18 months after a warranty repair.

    I received a payment reminder for an invoice dated November 2019 (which I never received!) and they want to charge me £87 for fixing a squeaky steering column. See attached screenshot. Cheeky buggers! This repair was carried out just a few months after I received the vehicle, and only now 18...

    London to Orkney, and most of the NC500, in a Tesla Model 3

    I'm glad you went to Orkney. Having grown up there, I heartily recommend it! Nice photos of Birsay and Stenness. :)

    Scotland road trip

    If you're going to Fort William, be sure to head west a bit along the A830 (Glenfinnan, Arisaig, Morar, Mallaig). It is stunning.

    Andersen A2

    I had a mixed experience with my A2. Had it for about a year now. When it arrived, there were scratches and paint bubbles on the front plate, which the installer logged and I contacted support about. I also could never get the phone app to recognise my charger. It worked fine as a dumb charger...

    Spotify weirdness since the 44.10.1 update

    Could it be that the songs your daughter likes all just sound the same?

    [UK] 2020.44.x

    If you (as an artist) want a gap between two of the songs on your album, you can put it there. It's your album, you can make it sound however you want. What you don't want is dumb crappy audio players sticking extra gaps between your songs when there was supposed to be no gap. Imagine a live...

    [UK] 2020.44.x

    Playing songs without an (unintended) gap between them. The way it sounds when you play an LP, cassette, or CD. So if you're playing an album, the songs will flow smoothly from one to the next exactly as the artist intended.

    What do you miss about your previous car?

    Volvo V70. Still got it, although these days we only use it for occasional long trips or taking the dog places. Things I miss about the Volvo: 500+ mile range. Enormous boot. Roof rack. Not caring about the interior getting filthy with mud, sand, and dog hair. Happily bouncing along country...

    Tesla Glasgow

    Personally I was hoping for Hillington/Braehead, alongside all the other luxury dealerships there (Infiniti recently pulled out leaving one empty). But this'll do, I suppose!

    Is anyone completely happy with their M3?

    99% happy. Gripes: The new £10/month connectivity fee. Spotify doesn't support gapless playback. Got a couple of nasty stone ships in the front, which I tried to fix up myself and I made an arse of it. OK, this one's not Tesla's fault.

    M3 insurance renewal price hike

    Meerkat quoted £609 with Admiral, so I phoned Churchill to threaten to leave, and they magically applied a loyalty discount to bring my renewal quote down from £720 to £570. That makes it a nice easy decision! In fairness to Churchill, they did also give me a £40 rebate a month or two back to...

    M3 insurance renewal price hike

    Had my M3 since August last year. Insurance with Churchill was £680. Just got the renewal notice, and it's jumped to £720. No claims or anything else which I'd expect to have an adverse effect. Eek! Time to start looking around.

    West of Scotland / Outer Hebrides road trip in a Tesla

    Just back from a week in St Andrews and we used the CPS chargers in one of the (deserted) university car parks, just a couple of minutes' walk from the town centre. There's also a Tesla supercharger just 20 minutes away in Dundee.

    How big is the screen wash bottle on a model 3?

    Maybe it's the LR variant that has higher screen wash capacity.

    How big is the screen wash bottle on a model 3?

    I poured most of a 5L bottle into mine. The remainder splashed all over the inner surface , thankfully avoiding the open frunk. What an awkward position for the opening, miles away from the nearest edge...

    Energy Savings Trust loan for Model 3

    No, you have to supply proof of purchase once you've received the car. Otherwise they will seek to recover the loan from you.

    Superchargers being increased in Scotland

    What's open in Aviemore at 7am? When I drive up the A9 I normally leave very early in the morning, and in my ICE car I would stop at Ralia which has 24 hour toilets and the cafe opens at 8 for a nice cup of tea. Sadly Ralia has no charger though!

    Cheapest charging on the go in UK

    All the ChargePlaceScotland chargers in... ermm... Scotland are free. (Subject to registration, and an optional £20 RFID card.)

    I find myself using the brakes quite a lot at the moment. Freezing cold weather means the regen takes ages to become useful.

    Anderson A2 Charger

    I have an Andersen A2. It looks nice. It works fine as a dumb charger. I have never managed to get the app to connect to it to play with the "smart" features, not that I particularly need them. The front panel of mine was damaged when it arrived (some scratches and bubbles on the paint), and...

    New Octopus Go tariff and off peak options?

    Octopus Go is working very nicely for me.

    Are smart charge points worth having?

    I got the Andersen A2 smart charger purely for aesthetic reasons, and at the moment it's operating in Dumb mode because I couldn't be bothered setting it up and linking it to the phone app. Maybe I'll get round to it one day, but at the moment I'm happy enough with it just being a dumb charger.

    Sometimes the auto wipers work fine. But other times I've been driving through torrential rain at night and the wipers haven't so much as twitched without manual intervention.

    Who said Tesla’s don’t have engines?

    I booked a regular service centre appointment, and they got in touch a couple of days later to tell me they'd send the mobile engineer round to my house instead. I'm in Renfrewshire; I was booked into the Edinburgh SC.

    Who said Tesla’s don’t have engines?

    I had a mobile service appointment today to sort a squeaky steering column. Kept me informed, arrived on time, very pleasant and helpful, asked if there was anything else he could help with. Very positive experience.

    EV Parking Etiquette

    Charging points are there to be used, so use them. That's literally what they're for. Every 30 minutes you spend charging is 30 minutes less you'll have to spend next time. It all evens out in the end.

    Airport Parking and charging

    I did this recently with Skyport at Glasgow Airport. They have four charging bays (Rolec), I just drove into one of them and plugged in, and left it for a week. The airport shuttle bus takes 5 minutes. The whole process worked well; I would do it again. I had pre-booked an electric car charging...

    Getting to Tesla Newbridge (Edinburgh) by public transport?

    May not help the OP, but for the benefit of future readers coming from the West, I got the Citylink bus from Glasgow and got off at this stop. Then it was a 10 minute walk over the footbridge and past McDonalds.
