    Model Y RWD test drive

    I find that regen is so variable, depending on battery percentage and temperature, that though it would be interesting to know the differences it would be extremely difficult to compare in a straightforward test. I suppose Bjorn is used to going to the lengths needed so maybe he could manage...

    EV servicing costs

    I live on a road that is salted every day throughout the winter, it seems. The road is nicely clear of ice but the cars suffer. Ironically we’ve barely had any snow this year so far in the middle of the Southern Uplands. When I first noticed the surface corrosion I made a point of reducing regen...

    EV servicing costs

    The MOT will not fail on surface corrosion. So long as the discs are structurally sound and the brakes apply the necessary retardation they pass. Mine has had surface corrosion for 2 MOTs (and no… once you’ve got it I’m afraid you can apply all the frequent use you like and it doesn’t remove it.)

    First winter. Wh/mi ouch.

    I suspect that the new Highland M3 will have an increased spread of range figures for the very reason it is more efficient over all. For example the car is not going to be able to take advantage of its fabulous aero during a howling rainstorm and will likely be dragged back to a similar...

    Home charging dropping to 16A

    The "resting voltage" is less significant than the drop when demand rises. You will find that the voltage varies when the car is pulling the full 32amps. You can see the voltage in the Tesla app if you watch the charge in real time. An app like Tessie or Teslafi will graph the voltage over the...

    Off topic but ... what software do/did you use to put a limit on MacBook charging?

    Charging habits

    As already explained above a cycle isn't a single charge! However, if aiming for optimum battery longevity charging smaller amounts to maintain your mid range percentage is better than fewer deep charges. In my own circumstances I can mostly operate between 50% and 75% if I plug in every day ...

    It’s good to give the car a 10 minute warm up via the app before setting off… not had steamed windows so far. I leave the hvac on auto …

    Unless it's WD40 silicone spray of course. (WD40 comes in many different flavours these days ...)

    Winter wheels and tyres for Model 3 and Model Y

    I seem to remember a few years ago someone on the forum organised some group buying of imported wheels for significantly reduced cost. That's another option for people to check out if there are others interested.

    I’ve never had an issue with ordering from Blackcircles with the fitting taking place at a local garage. Has something changed recently?

    DC Charging Unavailable

    I would be surprised if rain is an issue … mine is now entering its 5th winter and it is plugged in every night in rain, snow and “named” storms. If there was a weather related weakness in the design I think I would have found it by now!

    Wales to introduce 20mph default speed limit

    Yes, definitely "horses for courses" ... but ...having said that ... people with manual cars come to certain areas of Scotland (from other areas of the UK) especially for the driving enjoyment that can be had in a manual sports car.

    Wales to introduce 20mph default speed limit

    The 20mph issue really depends on the implementation. We have lots of 20mph limits around the Scottish Borders but I would say where they appear justified. I haven't seen any speed cameras installed that are associated with the 20mph limits. People do reduce their speed accordingly but do drive...

    Auto Defogger - how to turn it off ?

    I would presume by applying a combination of moisture removal, air flow and temperature to the areas that are sensed as being too wet/fogged. The faster this happens the better in terms of the air that is sucked through the filters.
  20. Adopado

    Auto Defogger - how to turn it off ?

    I strongly suspect that auto defogging has a lot do with helping to keep your air filters fresh. Unless the de-fogging is very obviously happening excessively ( it may be appropriate even when there’s no visible misting) it could be a good idea to just let it do its thing.

    Most requested features list

    AFAIK this already happens. The contribution of the front motor is increased or reduced as necessary. Also, it’s not a simple saving. Delivering 50kW split between two motors at 80%/20% is not necessarily less efficient than 50kW to a single motor. I think it’s reasonable to assume that Tesla...

    Home charging speed

    @TomL65 … this post gives you the answer… no need to look anywhere else … your car is charging correctly at full speed. (This is an easy confusion to make … yup, I did myself a few years ago)

    Yes, somewhat bizarrely, my wipers are also good and am now entering my 5th winter! This all the more surprising given that some people reported the early death of their blades within their first year.

    Germany - Collection

    The Just In Time mantra has been seriously challenged in recent years. Like most things there are pros and cons. (Unfortunately when someone has a "good idea" that clearly shows some benefits in one area we tend to then start trying to apply it everywhere.) For Tesla they realised that it would...

    My experience taking Tesla to court about FSD

    Being on the same connector is just one step ... all rapid chargers in the UK are on the same type of connector (including Tesla) and we are still in the situation of Tesla Superchargers working 99% of the time and others ... em, not so much!

    What do you do (admin and members if they know) when a forum member passes away?

    I agree with this approach. It shouldn't be up to the forum to do anything special. The forum could then simply have an auto delete of any account that hasn't been active for 12 months or whatever period suits.

    Tesla just called me to say they will have Highland in next week.

    A clarification just to put this issue to bed. Here are some stats ... for England 2002 to 2018. This is likely to be the same for the whole of the UK. Most car journeys are undertaken with only the driver: "There has been almost no change in car and van occupancy over this period with either...

    My experience taking Tesla to court about FSD

    They knew for sure that they were going to lose in court. It's probably a small advantage to Tesla be able to say they haven't lost the case in court.

    My experience taking Tesla to court about FSD

    This an important point. It applies to any "negotiation" with a non human entity. If a person sets out on the process expecting a huge publicly-quoted company to respond in the manner of a reasonable human being they are immediately on shaky ground! Any such company is akin to a machine that...

    Of course it matters if It reduces the number of available stalls! I can't see you being very relaxed about it if you end up in a queue when you can see there are unused stalls that are only unavailable because someone didn't understand the charger/space arrangement.

    Good idea … except that I can’t get something out of my head that I think came from a post on this forum a few years ago. Someone said that you shouldn’t let a Karcher type pressure washer freeze in the depths of winter because they can split and be unrepairably damaged. Not something that I...

    So… Highland is out…

    I have the impression that there is an overall intention to slightly reduce sportiness... moving more towards a softer, quieter, less taut ride ... so slightly slower steering would fit with that approach. Many of the comments about the car have been from people who want that kind of feel. It's...
