    UK 2021 Model 3 Q2 collection and delivery experiences

    After 6 long months, I questioned myself whether it would be worth the wait. It is! 😃

    UK 2021 Model 3 Q2 collection and delivery experiences

    I can confirm my M3P that arrived today does NOT have passenger lumbar adjustment. It has a build date of 5th May, ,,,,,but quite frankly who gives a damn! What a car! 😃

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    Same here. Had an SMS yesterday saying delivery will be some time between 8am and the end of the day. Received an email soon after that telling me delivery will be at 7am (it wasn't!). Today I have received a further email from Tesla with a link to where I'm supposed to sign the delivery...

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    So I received an SMS earlier today confirming my delivery for tomorrow sometime 'between 8am and the end of the day' I have now just received a delivery reminder email that gives the time of delivery as 7am Which do I believe, SMS, Email or neither? Has anyone ever had a home delivery as early...

    How lucky are you getting it delivered before 09:30!?!?!? ... I have the day booked off work for my delivery tomorrow, although I'm mentally preparing myself for a nervous day-long wait! Looking lovely by the way!

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    My MSM/White M3P is being delivered from Bristol to my home address on Thursday, so there is a good chance it'll be at Bristol already... Its been over 6 months, but these last few days are by far the hardest!

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    With the first Performance deliveries/collections being tomorrow, I presume that some of our cars will already be the delivery/collection centres already... or at least arriving sometime today. Anyone live near enough to go and take a look and some photos later for a sneak preview!?

    Using 'Dashcam' to reduce insurance premium?

    I know from reading the various threads on here that lots of people take advantage of the discount offered when 'Auto Pilot' is added, but having something listed as a 'Modification' to get a discount when it is in fact 'Standard' feels like dodgy ground to me (same for dashcam, which is why I...

    Additional Drivers - Use same account or not?

    Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Whilst I tend to do the majority of the driving, the other half will probably use it once or twice a week, so I think it makes sense to have access through her phone. it's not a lease, so no hurdles to jump through on that front.

    Additional Drivers - Use same account or not?

    For those of you that allow others to drive your Tesla's via their own phones, do you share your Tesla account details with them or invite them to use their own Tesla account? My M3P will be delivered next week. Unfortunately the other half will want to have a go at some point (if she can tear...

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    I had that dilema with my last car. Fortunately they provided an Abarth 595 competizione as a loaner which was great fun in the interim! Just be mindful that if you do wait, try and avoid the temptation to clean it as the detailers will probably thank you for that,

    Proof of payment - Is this necessary?

    I've done the suggested £1 test transfer to Tesla (using the RN number as the payment reference) and this was showing against the order in my Tesla order within a few minutes. I will make the remaining payments over the next few days, but I notice that Tesla also request to 'Email proof of...

    Using 'Dashcam' to reduce insurance premium?

    My primary concern was that the dashcam was listed as a 'Modification' when it isn't and I didn't want to leave any scope for the insurance companies to argue 'misrepresentation' to invalidate any potential future claim. £11 to clear that up was worth it for me, but I guess the risk/reward...

    Using 'Dashcam' to reduce insurance premium?

    I have just taken out insurance for my M3P which is due to delivered to my home on June 17th (after over 6 months of waiting!) I received a quote that I was VERY happy with from Admiral (~£400 fully comp.), so I paid for this yesterday. On reviewing the documentation today, I notice that I...

    I already had the day booked off work to go and collect from Bristol. I work from home at the moment, but I think I'll stay off work on the off chance it arrives in the morning....... and now I've said that it'll be a 10pm delivery!

    No mention of a delivery fee for me. I am purchasing direct from Tesla and not through a lease company so not sure if that might be the difference?

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    Just received SMS confirming June 17th Delivery of my M3P to my home address. Had originally been scheduled to collect from Bristol on the same date, but asked via Tesla Chat last Monday if there was an option to swap to home delivery as this is far more convenient for me. I wasn't expecting...

    Insurance New Vehicle [2021 Megathread]

    Thanks. ....that would make sense, but this whole Tesla order process has found me regualry questioning what is and isn't considered to be reasonable! ... I think I'll call the Insurance folks to have them confirm that.

    Insurance New Vehicle [2021 Megathread]

    Raza on Tesla chat also just provide me with my allocated registration number. Happy days! :cool: ....as this is only allocated and not actually registered until shortly before delivery/collection I guess there is a chance that it could change. Does anyone know what would be the implications...

    What do we think about the UK license plate green flash?

    I'm interested to know what people think about the uk license plate green flash that now comes as standard on all new Tesla vehicles. Personally, I'm thinking of replacing mine when it arrives in June with a standard plate without any embelishment (blue, green, GB or UK etc.). My main reason...

    Insurance New Vehicle [2021 Megathread]

    I got lucky as the best quote (Admiral) that I received through Confused.com (no affiliation) remains valid on the day of collection, 28 days from the date of the quote. I do recognise however that not all insurance companies offer fixed quotes so there is an element of 'luck of the draw' with...

    Insurance New Vehicle [2021 Megathread]

    From personal experience (see post here), I would recommend starting to get quotes as early as possible. My best quote so far was at -28 days (-21 days significantly higher). ... I'll keep checking each week however, just in case there is another 'sweet spot' between now and my 17th June...

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    So it seems that the 21-day insurance quote 'sweet-spot' is not a hard and fast rule! With my M3P collection scheduled for 17th June, yesterday was supposed to be the sweet spot for securing my best insurance quote. Fortunately I got curious last week and decided to request several quotes for...

    Anyone bought the Tesla a bottle had it delivered yet?

    Probably all on the HYPERION RAY with the M3P's. ...., You'll probably get them before July so Tesla can meet their Q2 sales targets. 😏

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    Thanks for the clarification regarding the code. No concerns here regarding performance. I am simply curious about whether Tesla are shipping B42 Panasonic batteries all the way from the US or if they were using 'locally' sourced LG (or other) equivalents.
  39. M

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    Has it been confirmed that the Shanghai-built M3P's are using the same Panasonic battery used in those from Fremont in 4Q 2020? I think it has been confirmed that we will have a B42 battery, but - this is possibly a silly questions - is that code specific to the battery supplier (e.g. LG or...

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    Does anyone know yet whether the 2021 MiC Performance vehicles that have just turned up in Australia have the same battery packs that were used in the Fremont built 2021 P's that arrived in 4Q 2020?

    2021 Shipping Movements

    I know that HYPERION RAY will be bringing the first Shanghai-built RHD 2021 M3 Performance vehicles to GB and Ireland in June, but do we know if there are any ships supplying other Shanghai export markets (LHD or RHD) with 2021 M3P's that will arrive at their destinations before this (assuming...

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    My understanding is that the 'sweet spot' for insurance quotes is 21 days before its needed. With my delivery being scheduled for the 17th June, I've set myself a reminder for 27th May to sort our the insurance. (not that I'll need the reminder!). I've decided not to even look before then, as I...

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    From what I've read, it basically costs more for the insurer to put right any damage as the repair would also involve re-applying the PPF (and ceramic coating). That additional cost risk increases the premium. I guess if the insured was happy to bear that additional cost after the repair had...

    2021 Shipping Movements

    GB M3P delivery dates have just started to be confirmed, with the earliest starting around 16th June. Not sure if that helps to determine whether HYPERION RAY will be stopping at Southampton or Zeebrugge first?

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    Interesting!.. I have recently looked into PPF and got a quote for the work but got a little jittery by stories from those whose insurance premiums jumped when it was disclosed. I had my last car ceramic coated only and would thoroughly recommend it, but that didn't prevent the stone-chips in...

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    Do we know if any Shanghai-made 2021 M3P's (LHD or RHD) have been delivered anywhere in the world yet? If not, do we know which country will likely to be getting them first?

    Selling a Model 3 Performance - Anyone tried using the brokerage system to sell?

    +1 for Motorway. See my recent experience here. ....although I understand that some members of this community have had positive experiences selling their Tesla M3's using Simon Jones. This might be a better option for you given the the relatively small number of M3's on the second hand market.

    UK Model 3 Performance 2021 Waiting Room

    As others have said, it doesn't really matter how long you wait as there will always be a newer model just around the corner and that is true whatever car you buy, not just with Tesla. The benefit we do get with Tesla however is that 'improvements' are continuously received during ownership...

    Selling current car to fund Tesla Purchase

    I think what you both say is probably correct. People do have unrealistic expectations, but the majority of us buy/sell cars infrequently so it's understandable why this would be the case. The reason I went with Motorway.co.uk was to minimise those unknowns and to maximise my sale price...
