    Primacy 4 replacing [mixing] Pilot Sport 4

    Just in case anybody is wanting Pilot Sport 4 t0 acoustic (regardless of need I am now very happy I have 4 of the same tyre...) go to Asdatyres. I got it fitted for £180 and that was with the £7.20 extra for the mobile fitting which was really fast and simple. Highly recommend and finally some...

    Primacy 4 replacing [mixing] Pilot Sport 4

    Ha. So I contacted Tesla to see what they say about different tyres and: " Sebastian 01:25 PM I regret to say that my S5 has tyres all from different brands Sebastian 01:26 PM Having a different brand or make of tyre wont effect the vehicle, maybe a little noisier, but will not affect the...

    Primacy 4 replacing [mixing] Pilot Sport 4

    Hmmm... Can I live with the fronts being 235/45 ZR18 98Y T0 while the back being 235/45 R18 98Y. Even the drop of Z, which is overwrote by the Y anyway, annoys me. But for £120 saving per tyre maybe I just need to get over it :P. Now would if I got the non t0 pilot sport 4 without foam would I...

    Primacy 4 replacing [mixing] Pilot Sport 4

    Contacted Michelin and they confirmed pilot sport t0 will be in UK by 5th May. Which isn't super far but too long to keep my car off the road. Tempted to just bite the bullet and pay the huge £284 to Tesla and have it sorted. It turns out it's going to annoy the hell out of me not have 4 tyres...

    Primacy 4 replacing [mixing] Pilot Sport 4

    Shockingly while tasty not quite 😃. I was also surprised to find Asda tyres ! I felt a well known brand might be better in terms of warranty etc than local garage but clearly Halfords did a fast one. Pilot sport EV do look pretty interesting but not sure I can wait with these random tire on my...

    Primacy 4 replacing [mixing] Pilot Sport 4

    I assume the speed rating is important ? Should be Y but we got given a W (and the specific one for Volvo's which may or may not matter ). So I don't know if j need to get two new primacys rather than just 1. And last problem is finding stock. 😃. Kwik fit, Asda etc all don't have the 98Ys. I'm...

    Primacy 4 replacing [mixing] Pilot Sport 4

    Cheers for all the advice. It would annoy me but could have dealt with it if it made no difference. Clearly it seems to do ? Turns out they also have me a 98w rather than 98y so lower speed rating. Plus it was the Volvo version.... Brilliant. Had a moan and they have refunded it + let me keep...

    Primacy 4 replacing [mixing] Pilot Sport 4

    Hi all. Picked up Tesla on 2 March 2021. Got a M3 long range. Somehow got a puncture on the first week. Took to Halfords who said it can't be repaired needs to be replaced. They ordered in a new tyre. We noticed they replaced a pilot sport 4 with a primacy 4 tyre, due to a shortage of pilot...

    Insurance renewal

    Thanks for the link I've always wondered the legality of "fronting". But luckily it wasn't my car. It was their car I borrowed to use occasionally so was made named driver. Lucky I did as it saved a fair bit off the insurance! If you dont plan on owning a car for a while I'd recommend people...

    Insurance renewal

    I did wonder if it was London so I made the exact same quote in a East Sussex sleepy village and got back £1250... So must be age + no years NCD.

    Insurance renewal

    Wow massively jealous of all the quotes people getting. £904 was the best I got from direct line and luckily that dropped from £1400 due to being named driver on in laws policy! Two alternatives were £3200 and £10,020 from LV........ Churchill Admiral and others would flat our refuse to insure...

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    I got no text about delivery date but the day GLOVIS Century left I saw the inventory stock get huge. I quickly messaged live chat to ask if I was matched. I wasnt but he was able to match me immediately. Interestingly, I'm not sure why, but people who were matched on the Century day of...

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    Mine is Blue LR with everything else standard - no tow bar. Also highly likely on Glovis Captain since getting VIN matched the day it left Shanghai + estimated delivery still says Feb.

    Insurance New Vehicle [2021 Megathread]

    Direct Line £883 for 10k miles, 0 claims, but 5 years named driver on a direct line policy. Was originally coming up with 1,300 before I clocked the name driver section. More pricey than I expected what can you do! Other insurers either refuse to lend (churchill, by the miles) while LV and a...

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    If you havr a VIN the car will be on a ship. If ithe VIN is MIC then its extremely likely it is on the Glovis Century. This has just left Singapore and estimated to arrive in Port Said on 8th Feb (the Med side of the Suez Canal). You may not have a date because they aren't sure when the ship...

    To get live chat go to the model 3 inventory page. A popup chat box should appear in the bottom right hand corner.

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    If you're wondering start a live chat with Tesla and ask for your VIN. IF it starts with LRW then it's MIC.

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    What is the firs The first 3 digits for MIC is LRW while California is 5YJ. I'm guessing your car will be MIC as the rest of us and same delivery dates. Your car will be on GLOVIS Century ship at the moment on its way to Singapore

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    Do live chat with Tesla and drop your order number (RN...) Ask if you have been matched. If not you should be. Then ask for your VIN and you can see if you are getting one from China. If all the above happens then likely your car is on a ship called GLOVIS CENTURY currently on its way to...

    I did it on live chat. If you go to model 3 on the website and then inventory on bottom right corner a little speech bubble pops up. That's the live chat and I find they're pretty good. I mentioned that my spec is now in inventory in my city and I asked whether I have been matched. He said no...

    2021 Shipping Movements

    To add to that I've had a M3 LR matched with a MIC VIN. ETA from Tesla advisor was late Feb early march in UK.

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    Ah yes I forgot to look at my VIN stupidly and just assumed Fremont. Mainly because I asked last week and they said that they aren't planning on having any MIC cars any time soon. Just checked and yep it's a MIC ha.

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    I just chatted to Tesla. I hadn't been matched but he was able to match me straight away. Late Feb early march is the due date which puts me on the Horizon Leader. Exciting. I also asked about price reductions in EU as been discussed. He said he knows nothing about any price reduction in UK...

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    Ordered 10th Jan. Order agreement also disappeared (UK M3 LR). No VIN after contacting Tesla. End of week/early next week aligns with Mr Miserable's shipping tracking. He has penciled the Horizon Leader to arrive Pier 80 by Friday. It seems likely the car will be going on this ship. If you want...

    Wiki UK 2021 Orders and Pending Deliveries

    I ordered my Tesla (M3LR) on Monday (11.1.21) and had a few questions on Tuesday I needed clearing up. At the end I thought to drop a cheeky question on ETA. I was told actually (despite the store still saying est.Feb) that I will likely get the car in March. This is because of numerous...
