    Tracker for insurance

    Had a similar challenge from our fleet insurer, ended up insuring Tesla on a different policy with Direct Line, far cheaper and no tracker. One thing to watch out for is the tracker package we have on our hydrogen Hyundai Nexo comes with a fob that you have to keep on your person when driving...

    Taptes roof rack

    Fed up taking my VW Touareg whenever I want to transport bikes. have an M3P so tow bar mount not an option and a rear mount tailgate rack will destroy boot spoiler in seconds.... so looks like roof bars are the only option anyone any experience with the taptes ones, look considerably cheaper...

    [PSA] Do not tilt your front seats fully forward...

    Just to update, having had my vanity mirror break due to the design fault. I ultimately had it replaced by Tesla as a goodwill gesture.

    Autoglass Windshield Replacement

    Autoglass in Gloucester, fitted a replacement rear screen to my M3P a couple of weeks ago. Brilliant service, clearly knew what they were doing, better aligned than the original!

    [PSA] Do not tilt your front seats fully forward...

    Just realised what the plastic film that covers so many bits of the car on delivery is for. Mistakenly I had assumed it was just a lack of pdi and preparation. I was wrong it is actually a very sophisticated lamination system, so glad I left mine in place ;)

    @Durzel so are they do yours foc?

    [PSA] Do not tilt your front seats fully forward...

    Trying to extract a sweet that had entered a vent under the seat because Tesla are too tight / incompetent to have a grill / mesh on it.....

    UK accessories for RHD Model 3 [megathread]

    Ok, not happy,.... I too have a broken passenger interior mirror, due to the inherent design fault. I will be interested to see how Durzel gets on, I don’t intend paying for a replacement! Hacked off already at the prospect of wasting Tuesday morning at an Autoglass centre whilst the replace...

    Auto Pilot... Am I doing it wrong?

    I’ll have a look at the offset. In a way it is good to know this issue is not me, but disappointing it is so rubbish. I’ve got a Hyundai Nexo and that copes so much better.... Well it did when I last drove it, not been able to get any hydrogen since March ;)

    Auto Pilot... Am I doing it wrong?

    Almost managed not to mention the phantom baking....

    Auto Pilot... Am I doing it wrong?

    Did a 100 miles on the M5 last night... Whilst fairly quite traffic, still had to change lanes to overtake slower moving traffic. Theoretically if I am in the middle lane, cruise control set 75 (this is theoretical), auto pilot turned on, blue steering wheel icon illuminated. Indicate to enter...

    Rattle....

    Was wondering about having heater on full belt for a while and try to melt it ;)

    Rattle....

    Don’t jest, opened the bonnet of one of our others cars that has been sorn since COVID, only to be greeted by a mouse in the engine bay... poison already administered!

    Rattle....

    Ok, I’ve been stupid.... Somehow a strawberry bonbon fell on the rear floor. I made the mistake of not immediately stopping and picking it up. By the time I finished driving it had vanished. Except it has not vanished it is now merrily rolling around inside what sounds like a tube, every...

    EDF GoElectric tariff - consumption data

    I’m used to the data I get from Octopus Agile, anyone know how I can access the same granularity for the EDF goElectric tariff? No I’m not swapping, have it at another property...

    White M3P, second wash, a better way.

    Really can’t see myself doing that ;) Looks like I’ll get the polish and da polisher out at 9,000 miles then...

    White M3P, second wash, a better way.

    Ok I admit I was shamed by a young boy pointing at my car today and saying to his Father ‘If we had a Tesla we would keep it clean’.... I have not washed since the ‘just had it delivered, first clean novelty wash’ in March, been kind of busy ;) Hosed over, hand wash with Gyeon Bathe+, masses...

    Octopus Agile, who uses Ohme cable, and with which charger?

    Would need to get the commando adaptor for my existing 3pin Tesla charger and connect it up each time. I’ll leave the Tesla one in the car for emergencies and the Ohme one permanently plugged into the commando socket. anything for an easy life ;)

    Octopus Agile, who uses Ohme cable, and with which charger?

    I originally purchased a 3pin Ohme charger / cable, whilst waiting for the install of a 7kw Ohme charger. Work brilliantly. I’m now about to sell my 3pin one and buy a 32amp commando one for another property (can’t get another OLEV Grant ;) ) In the last three months my electricity bill has...

    Tesla guilty conscience?

    Oh and it is a March M3P so no legacy supercharging miles...

    Tesla guilty conscience?

    Nothing in the loot box, and a zero beside my referrals. I’m confused but not complaining!

    Tesla guilty conscience?

    I wondered about that, but I’ve not given it to anyone...

    Tesla guilty conscience?

    I’m suffering from the 4kw charging syndrome at the moment, so had to resort to using a supercharger. I went to look at my account and I have got a 400kw credit. It was not there last week i was charged normally. Is Elon saying sorry?
  27. J

    Charging - anyone else having issues?

    Really hacked off! Got back from work with 60% planning on a long journey tonight. Plugged in straight away 7kw, great, after an hours charge at 72% it’s throttled back to 4kw and 6 hours remaining to full. I want to leave in an hour.... looks like I’ll have to incorporate a visit to a...

    Ohme chargers and plunge pricing...

    It needs to have parallel schedules dependent on max price. As I tend to configure and leave it, rather than tweak everyday. weekdays max cost 4p/kWh 90% by 8am However would like another one that was 0p/kWh 100% by 8am If I leave max price 0p/kWh I’ll only charge up on about 5 nights a...

    Ohme chargers and plunge pricing...

    Wouldn’t it be great if Ohme had a schedule where if Octopus Agile went negative it automatically charged the car to 95% ? I’ve just tweeted them suggesting it, others may want to add momentum ;)

    Funk hooks

    @Gatsojon thanks for the ebay link, they have now arrived and have been fitted. Look much better than the holes, slight colour mismatch, but at that price I’m not concerned!

    Track mode v2 data extraction & video

    Just wondered if anyone had been successful playing with the mass of data now available. So far I have tried race render and dash ware. I can’t get race render to recognise the video files, whilst with dash ware I can’t get it to recognise the csv file. I’m sure it is user error ;) no need...

    v2020.8 rolling

    Indeed was sat in mine on a phone call whilst it was updating, one heck of a bang when it updated the ecus! Others on the conference call asked what was the noise, I couldn’t bring myself to tell them ;)

    Octopus Go - British Summer Time...

    Thanks all, think I’ve found the answer in my OHME app 1.30 - 5.30 BST according to them

    Ohme smart charger

    Something not smart here, but it might be me.... after my car failed to charge last night. I’ve stayed up to check tonight... my ohme smatt cable is not charging owing to apparently my car’s charge limit being set to 50% except it isn’t, what am I doing wrong?

    Octopus Go - British Summer Time...

    Just wondering, have the times changed for the 5pm tariff stuck at GMT or do they change across with BST? I need to keep my Caroke studio, gaming suite and teleconference venue charged up ;)

    Charger - DNO approval

    @AndyS3 I too am just finishing a new build, getting the electric supply was painful. But getting a charging point is worse! Luckily I had my smart meter installed today, suspect I’ll be one of the last for awhile. Not having a home charger is no longer the top of anyone’s list. Good luck...

    Charger - DNO approval

    @elastictangent thanks, they have just sent me yet another email saying it’s time to start my Olev application..... I’ve already done it twice! Quite appreciate there are other priorities though at the moment ;)
  41. J

    Charger - DNO approval

    @elastictangent that would be appreciated. I have @ 100amp supply fuse and no strange loads, other than a Tesla sucking 2kw most of the time I’m not driving it!

    Charger - DNO approval

    Interesting my installer ‘ Smart Home Charge ‘ won’t proceed until approval given. They are the ones liaising with the DNO

    Charger - DNO approval

    Just wondering how long the approval for the install of a domestic charger takes from the local electricity network provider? Been waiting for a fortnight, and bored using a 3 pin plug. Hardly the biggest problem in the current situation.... ;)

    Leased M3 - should it show in my Tesla account?

    I have the same issue, hiwever I’ve entered my payment card details and tried out using a supercharger yesterday. All worked perfectly and the invoice is now visible on the account, it shows both my name and the lease company on the invoice.

    Underwhelmed....

    To continue the underwhelmed theme, the long awaited installation of my new smart meter this afternoon between 1pm and 5pm, just got cancelled at 4pm. As a 'priority' client they can try again at the end of the month... Thanks Octopus / Providor I really wanted to spend a 1/2 days holiday...

    Underwhelmed....

    Colleague had one delivered at same time. The two delivery guys thought they were going to have to wait 40 minutes, in the end think it was a couple of hours.

    Underwhelmed....

    Ok - status change. M3P has been delivered. Arrived late morning, was able to be updated via a link they texted me prior. The Tesla app went from saying enable mobile data to telling me I had no Tesla please products. So app did not work until 9pm. so user experience so far pretty poor. Then...

    Underwhelmed....

    @pgkevet I purchased my first iPhone in 2008! Apple have realised from an early stage that customer experience is a key driver to success and brand advocacy. It’s why the unboxing experience is so important, the initial interaction and relationship with a product (or service) plays an important...
