    8 months old USA MYLR7 to UK

    May be already discussed and I've missed/forgotten it, but just in case; Insurance is likely to be a significant concern and cost. The UK car insurance market is problematical at the moment and the experience of many on here (me included) is that costs for insurance of a Tesla have reached an...

    8 months old USA MYLR7 to UK

    Whatever you think you might gain/save in terms of the relative cost of your car versus a UK equivalent, you will more than lose when you try to sell your (US) car over here. You will have to almost give it away or sell it for scrap. Bite the bullet - sell the US car and buy a replacement when...

    UK and Ireland Marketplace - For Sale / Wanted / Free

    There was nothing to agree with - I was questioning if he is offering the whole thing or just the extensions, hence the "?".

    UK and Ireland Marketplace - For Sale / Wanted / Free

    You might be talking about the mudflap extensions which used to come with the car routinely, rather than mudflaps proper? According to previous posters on here, the extensions are next to useless as they catch on speedbumps and any raised road surface you cross. Mine are still in the boot of my...

    So… Highland is out…

    To be fair, the turning circle on a model 3 can make some of the mini roundabouts a bit of a challenge if you want to go round to the 3rd or 4th exit.

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    Still wrong then, but not as wrong as it was. If they make up their own numbers they should say so.

    Model 3 Leasing UK

    I don't think they have got it right. The range and 0-60 are both wrong for the AWD M3.

    So… Highland is out…

    Doh - I meant 'put off by the M3 having no stalks'. As you were... (Coat please!)

    So… Highland is out…

    If you are put off by the M3 having no steering wheel you'll be in for a disappointment with the M2; unlikely to have a steering wheel based in the current 'direction of travel'.

    The wacky world of Tesla leasing early termination pricing.

    The basis used will reflect the 'Rule of 78', which is about the interest costs being weighted to the earlier part of the contract. See here. It may also reflect market issues, penalties, etc, as others have said, but the rule of 78 issue will be a part of it.

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    I think DPD specifically are self employed/franchised drivers so it will be a personal account.

    Tesla open up the SuC network [in UK]

    I live nearby and see them there regularly. Always 3 or 4 at least. They did use to occupy the free chargers at Tesco's in Old Trafford which I thought was very bad form, but I guess at least now they are paying for the energy they use.

    Plate Changeout - How?

    I'd used the Halfords own brand number plate pads. I had put loads on the front plate but during the hottest days last summer it finally gave up at the ends of the front plate. Admitted defeat and put the screws in. The back plate has been fine with the sticky pads, but obviously not suffering...

    Tesla Alternative?

    Let's hope the Taycan doesn't need the dealer time the X did! (And good luck to the buyer of your X).

    Plate Changeout - How?

    It may be they have changed the format a bit? Mine is a 2021 car and the holes in the backing plate on mine were about 2 or 3 inches in from the end which worked fine for me. The screws are just pretty short self-tappers. My numberplate is the original Tesla alloy one, in case that makes any...

    How concerned are you about the warranty (or lack thereof)?

    Presumably this; Clean and lubricate brake calipers every year or 12,500 miles (20,000 km) if in an area where roads are salted during winter From here.

    M3 LR Nearly New - Residual Values

    Is there no deposit/initial payment in either calculation? Scratch that - just looked online - no deposit. So the gamble is will a 6 year old M3 be worth more of less than £14,256.

    Free supercharging in Europe and Israel

    My wife has an ID.3 and I have mentioned to her before that she should sign up with a Tesla app as a backstop for when she's on her travels and in anticipation of more SC's opening up to all-comers. Today's bargain offer was too good to miss, so she signed up and we went to the Trafford Centre...

    Plate Changeout - How?

    Depends how reliable the adhesive is on the velcro on the back of the plate. I found that after a couple of goes just using sticky pads (the proper ones for number plates) the tension from the curve in the front plate would cause the ends to come free during the very high temperatures last...

    Plate Changeout - How?

    I had the same failure with the front plate using sticky pads last summer so drilled mine too. The slight lateral curve meant the adhesive was always under tension. Mounted onto the backing plate, which conveniently already had 2 holes in to accept a self-tapping screw. Got the covers (with...

    Tesla Alternative?

    It does look an interesting proposition. The '5 minute battery swap' idea referred to in the article is a curious proposition. Not sure how keen I would be to give up my suitably nursed battery for another with no certainty of how it has been looked after. Academic point of course, while they...

    Park Assist and front camera

    Ah. Not that then. Perhaps I'm thinking of the 'highland' fluff being talked about? Sure I've seen it mentioned somewhere.

    Park Assist and front camera

    I think Tesla's 'solution' to the park-assist fiasco is the future move to HW4 with an additional forward facing camera and botched software updates for the lost generation on HW3 with no parking sensors fitted.

    Wiki UK and Ireland Supercharger Site News

    I think they should just quote the maximum speed without any scope to confuse the issue with a categorisation. ...and while we're at it, I think the charge stations (if you will) should have a roadside display with the price quoted like petrol stations have to do for price per litre.

    Car damaged by another driver right before renewal time

    Bad luck there @Nick77. Feeling it too for the poor girl, there but for the grace of god and all that. On the above point, I asked my (then) insurer about why they made an adjustment for a no fault claim, their answer was along the lines of '...if you've been in an accident you are more likely...

    Tesla readies revamped Model 3

    I think that based on what Musk has said, the likely response from Tesla would be to produce cars with a similar range as currently, but with a smaller battery. The net effect would also increase efficiency, given lower weight.
