    Insurance UK

    really interested in this as ordered my M3P last night. DL quoting £650 (i currently pay £380 on my 2016 audi rs3). One key point would be windscreen cover i assume as its so vast - do the insurers properly cover that? thanks

    Performance Waiting Room

    Hi All! I just ordered a M3P I spent 3 months deliberating on the MXP or M3P but I just could not stretch to the X (it would have been nice as two young children) but the 3p is faster than my current car by some way (2016 Audi RS3) and it so damn cool. Then i spent ages debating between red and...

    Acceleration Boost £1.5k

    The difference of half a second 0-60 IS noticeable... as example it’s the difference between a golf R and an Audi RS3.... iv owned both and iv raced a golf R in my Rs3 off the lights...it’s big! And the quicker the 2 cars the bigger difference .5 seconds is. Not saying the money for Tesla...

    UK Existing tesla inventory VERY low?

    no rebates etc as such - you get a contribution in terms of a grant for the home charger i think but nothing has changed. oh well, i best just order new when i can and watch this space :)

    UK Existing tesla inventory VERY low?

    Hi All when i first decided i would get a tesla and was doing tests drives ~(around october) there were loads of 'existing inventory' (brand new) model XP on the tesla site... i could filter on interior, wheels etc since about the start of december i havent seen a single new car added to the...

    3rd party Warranty on used MX

    thanks, in the UK i dont think you can buy extended warranty from tesla now but for ICE cars its fairly common for people to buy third party warranty, its big business, but im not sure anyone would cover a tesla. it just seems odd for someone to bu y a £60k+ seconde hand car and just 'hope' it...

    3rd party Warranty on used MX

    Hi all, If you buy a used MX (2017 for example), is there a good third party warranty u can get? I realise it will have 5 year battery and power train left but car warranty? With so much tech I would worry buying a used (possibly private) unless anyone has purchased used, has ideas or...

    thanks, im new so thats really interesting. do you have a certain amount of time to get back to your car and move it when it reaches the desired charge level (sounds like your phone alerts you that its done or close?) also, a question i posted in another thread but had reply..... i keep hearing...

    unlimited SC cars get charged if a location is busy? really? whats defines when someone gets charged? i understand they still get charged for idle fees but if somewhere is just 'busy' thats irrelivant?

    Out of interest, when the SC’s are full do people tend to queue nicely? Is there a designated waiting area etc? I assume people don’t jump in like car park sieves I’m busy car parks? Just curious as new to this? the SC’s at blue water shopping center don’t really hav anywhere to queue as the are...

    Sentry Mode - Cost in miles per night

    Great thread anyone had a dash cam installed instead? I had one in my Audi rs3 and that records all night on an Sd card, imagine it uses vastly less battery? (I’m new to the Tesla’s)

    used model x p100d - fair pricing?

    Thanks gangzoom! Much appreciated! The cost of the 22” new means I may buy without and then contact you or look fir replicas if you hold on to them thanks again, your car is immense

    used model x p100d - fair pricing?

    Thanks for the info, much appreciated! Your car looks immense! I love the white six seat set up. Maybe I buy a Mx with smaller wheels and buy your 22” off you? Ha! I assume they go str8 on The raven has longer range I think so that negates ant range loss of the 22” I am guessing Thanks all

    Model 3: Charge to 80% or 90%?

    I guess I’m just paranoid about home charging. In the uk I worry that somehow if I leave the car plugged in overnight it will still somehow cost me even after it hits 80% as it’s still plugged in. I wish there was a metre I could connect to the home charger to show exactly the amount of kWh...

    used model x p100d - fair pricing?

    i absolutely LOVE tesla and I AM BUYING one but its crazy how much stuff you need to be aware off! really appreciate this insight...i knew i would lose free supercharging (which i want as there is a new SC coming to my town soon) but didnt know about warranty - i didnt think you could even...

    used model x p100d - fair pricing?

    nice car (but not family-of-four-friendly :) mswlogo: yeah agree if its mid 90's needs to be raven which the ones on tesla are but unsure on the externally listed ones.... £82k for a 2017 car seems very high too. its sounds like any 2019 Raven with 22" and 6 seat anywhere around £95k is a good deal

    used model x p100d - fair pricing?

    Hi all I am planning on buying a MX P100d in the next month or two - looking at a second hand one (2019 model) purely as £15k cheaper than brand new I was hoping those with more tesla experienced may have a better view on what is fair pricing; i have seen a couple of P100D model x recently...

    Model 3: Charge to 80% or 90%?

    im new here too and this topic is the key one for sure..... from what i can see, IF i charged from 15/20% up to 100% every time it would likely impact by battery performance in 5-8 years time but only by possibly 5-15 miles (average). seems like a VERY small price to pay for less frequent...

    I am planning on getting a new MX in spring...is it possible that this may get a software update to allow it to use v3 in the future or will MX never use v3 unless they bring out an all new MX or the new plaid? Thanks

    Shortcut to sport mode needed?

    this is something i asked the tesla guy on my M3P test drive last week. I have an audi rs3 just now and there is a button on the steering wheel to switch between 'comfort' and 'dynamic'. that was needed as dynamic is so loud i always wanted to switch to comfort when arriving home in the evening...

    Minimum charge

    Hi i am in the UK so weather in winter nothing like you but out of curiosity as i am new to EV - you say battery consumption far higher in winter - is that due to using heaters moe etc or is consumption higher due to car working harder etc? just trying to learn all the quirks of EV's thanks

    Model 3 ludicrous?

    Hi! I know it’s strange considering all but I want performance (my personal like) and would like space...so S and X are my faves but as you know they are both a huge step up in price so I may hav choice made for me on budget in which case I’m looking at 3 specs more in case

    Worth it to order a new X after Raven update?
