    Have you ever kerbed your Aero wheels?

    Did my rear wheel doing exactly the same. A nigh on 90degree turn. Crawled round at 3mph and still managed to clip the back wheel. Owned my last car for 5 years and didn't kerb any wheels. I've got 3 kerbed wheels now and I've only had the car 7 months! It's a lease too so gives me anxiety...

    Wiki UK and Ireland Supercharger Site News

    Sorry if this is old news but the super chargers at Washington services on the A1 require you to sign in at the hotel front desk again. A bit naughty of them as you haven't had to sign in for the last year. If the bloke in the car next to me hadn't told me about the change I would have got a...

    Charge port issue

    So my car wouldn't start today because the car insisted the charge port was open when it wasn't. The car also wouldn't let me open or close the charge port via the mobile app or the in car screen. Got a service call booked in for Wednesday Anyone else had this issue?

    Supercharger Scotch Corner Fine!

    I was at Washington a couple of weeks ago. You get a window now where you don't have to register your car if you are charging it

    Battery Drain Overnight.

    Mine does the same. Bit of a shitter losing 70miles of charge of if its sat on the drive for a week. My Leaf didn't lose anyway near that much

    Charge cable stuck [in CYC charge point]

    Thought I'd pop back to the charger today in case it had unlocked and someone was tempted to nick the cable. Good job I did as the charge station had been powered off and the cable was unlocked. I found someone trying to plug it into their car thinking it was a tethered charger!

    Charge cable stuck [in CYC charge point]

    No the Metro Centre. The second I inserted the cable it locked and said it was charging. I hadn't swiped my card though and the car wasn't taking any charge. I spent ages swiping my card and pushing and pulling the cable until it nearly pulled the charging unit out of the ground but it wouldn't...

    Charge cable stuck [in CYC charge point]

    It gets worse. As Id had no update today I contacted them again. Another 30mins on hold to be told that the man I spoke to last night hadn't logged the call. The people who allocate jobs to the engineers aren't back at work until Monday and it's likely to be Tuesday or later when they can...

    Charge cable stuck [in CYC charge point]

    I'm tempted to modify the cable. It's locked in at the car end so there shouldn't be an issue with it getting nicked

    Leasing Model 3 via Salary sacrifice

    just an update on this. Got my first wage slip through today and my lease company have miscalculated my pension contribution savings :mad: Instead of being £295 worse off I'm actually £375 worse off per month! I'm waiting to hear back from them but I suspect my 2 choices will be to either...

    Charge cable stuck [in CYC charge point]

    So 10 days into my ownership of a M3LR and last night my Tesla charging cable got stuck in a CYC charging point! After 30mins on hold on the phone I finally got through to someone who couldn't manage to release it remotely. They've had to send engineers out today to retrieve it. Still waiting...

    Washington Chargers during lockdown

    Did you stop off at Washington? It's only 5mins from my house but I haven't needed to use it yet. How much is a full charge?

    Your Cars Name?

    Boot Jester Because my 4 year old Daughter thinks the car has jet boosters/boot jesters from a standing start, and mixes her words up :D

    I do, but you can only select a temp. Not where the fans or aiming or how powerful they are sadly

    Features we didn't know we wanted?

    I wish there was a quicker to adjust the heating or turn on the wipers whilst driving. It's not ideal having to take your eyes off the road and click into sub menu's to do it. I also wish you could watch Netflix or YouTube and adjust the heating without having to cancel out of the app and load...

    2020 Q4 'M' delivery club

    Figured it out now. Is there anyway to turn on cruise control without the car instantly surging up to the speed limit!? Nearly rear ended a car doing 50 on the motorway

    Not the UK Supercharger Site News thread

    Used the Fastned 175kw charger in Newcastle City centre today. Charged me £20 to add 200miles in around 30mins. A bit steep!

    2020 Q4 'M' delivery club

    Quick question. Do you have to pay for the autopilot update to use auto steer? I have the little grey steering wheel icon on the dash but tapping down twice on the gear lever does only turns on cruise control ?

    So I got a text yesterday saying my car is getting delivered today and I will get a text containing a link to track the transporter. It's now 1pm and still no text! Should I contact Tesla or Arnold Clark to chase this up? A rough estimate would be nice so I don't have to sit in the house all day

    Leasing Model 3 via Salary sacrifice

    We are going to have to agree to disagree on this one. I've worked in the NHS for 20 years. I've not once known someone do 96 hours in a week or 32hours in a row. Not sure which trust or which area you work in but it's clearly poorly managed

    Got the text today. Delivery in Durham on December 9th. I assume it's on the Grand Aurora also. Any news on whether these cars will be the 2020 model or the 2021 refresh?

    You obviously don't pull 13hour shifts on the wards or in A&E... Thinking it's acceptable to work until your dead went out with the workhouses

    I've got one of the old school 16amp chargers. Would sticking a C16 rcbo in make any difference in preventing something burning out?

    Leasing Model 3 via Salary sacrifice

    I live in Durham. My job is 10 miles away so I do about 400 miles a month commuting. At weekends we might drive into Newcastle or to the beach which is about 12miles away and we tend to alternate cars. I'd struggle to add 200miles a month on for weekend driving

    Leasing Model 3 via Salary sacrifice

    Tons of reasons. The NHS being on the table in any post Brexit US trade deal for one. I love the NHS but it employs 1.5mil people and can't sustain its continued underfunding. I think it's highly unlikely that it will remain a completely public sector organisation for the next 30 years, and any...

    Sorry for the thread resurrection. I have a Model 3 on order and had planned on using my existing Rolec wallpod to charge it. It was installed 6+ years ago when I owned a Nissan Leaf Reading though this thread I'm not so sure it will work for long before burning out though. Is there anything...
