    EVSE died after 7years and 23MWh. Low cost dumb EVSE replacement recommendations ?

    Should be a Pen Fault detection device rather than an earth rod to meet current wiring regulations. Even if you decide to ignore that, is the PowerWall earth rod near where the car is parked ? and definitely connected to this earth you are using not on some other side of the PowerWall. Be...

    I can look at a video from the camera and tell if it's raining and if the screen needs to be wiped faster or slower. That's how NN work.

    Buying a used M3P

    You may be in a position to tolerate a short term increase in tax/reduction in service, but I don't think many other people are at the moment. The current plan is to use a stick to beat any manufacturer who sells less than 22% new EVs, increasing to 80% by 2030. Incentives absolutely do work...

    Buying a used M3P

    Norway had an advantage of pretty much limitless money from selling oil to the rest of the world, kinda helps balance the books. Giving incentives absolutely works, however it means less money for other public services or even higher taxes. Giving payments to people who can afford new cars...

    Buying a used M3P

    The £165 will apply to all EVs per year, whenever registered. The £355 will only apply to new cars registered after April 2025 between years 2 and 6. Of course, things could change after the election, but I don't think Labour intend to make any changes.

    Going from the longest range Model 3 to the shortest, and lots of feature differences.

    Helvetia (& Tesla?) no longer offering extended warranties

    Both cars will advertise to say there is warranty remaining, in one case that would just be the battery but that's really not going to determinable in any adverts for a personal sale. And that assumes you are selling privately, no PX or trade sale is going to consider it.

    Solar Panels UK - is it worth it?

    Electricity Meters are +- 5% accuracy to UK standards. The metering built into inverters/batteries are likely to be even less accurate.

    Helvetia (& Tesla?) no longer offering extended warranties

    Which would apply to your car, but not to the majority and I suspect not the OP as since late 2020 the heat pump replaced PTC and cooling for the computer. Even in your situation I would feel that paying some large chunk and hoping a covered component needs replacing while still having lots of...

    Helvetia (& Tesla?) no longer offering extended warranties

    Why do you think its risky? and what do you think would be covered by an extended warranty anyway? The battery and drive train is covered for 8 years anyway, so you are talking about non wear and tear damage to a pretty narrow range of components.

    Complaints

    I would be back to the Service Manager if they haven't kept to their commitments first. TOUK does suggest you can escalate further as detailed at Tesla Warranty Documents / Guide on escalating issues / UK Consumer Law / How to report faults to DVSA / How to take issues to Small Claims Court or...

    Odd supercharger routing and -10% arrival on recent trip.

    Well I've never seen that in the 5 years I've been driving Tesla, or read anyone else on here ever detail a similar experience where it takes you the opposite direction to the way you are heading. Nearest I've seen was heading back from Wales on the M4 heading up the M5 expecting to charge at...

    Odd supercharger routing and -10% arrival on recent trip.

    It's you. Imagine you arrived somewhere where you could plug in but had mucked around so you had loads of charge on board at SuperCharger prices. I would normally plan the full trip, there and back, so it knows where you are going next and can pick the optimum places to charge. Planning via the...

    So… Highland is out…

    That's a bit on an NRA style excuse. When one brand of car is regularly involved in crime, fires or horrendous accidents pretty consistently then it's fair to suggest that we would be better off without them.

    How likely is keyless theft 2023

    It's more secure. UWB has the ability to properly measure how far away a key is so it's not (currently) possible to use any kind of relay attack.

    So… Highland is out…

    Harry always tries to give an impression that he's very well informed and backs his arguments up with data, until you actually listen to what he says and you realise that his conclusions are simply nonsense. From that video I would agree with him on * lots of larger EVs simply aren't efficient...

    How Secure Are Teslas/Tesla Thefts

    In a proper security system you would have both an access key and a duress key, if you are forced to tell the duress key it will lock out mechanism for a long period. Movies never get this right when torturing the secret agents to get the code, same with trying to get locations out of people, I...

    Model S Stolen

    It's not fake, but it is old, there did used to be an exploit that allowed physical access during the car computers boot process to override the pin on old style Model S and X, but it was fixed over the air some time ago now. This is the 'secret sauce' that keep Tesla near the bottom of the...

    So… Highland is out…

    'Massive order backlog' only happened as it was launched in the UK and during pandemic years when new Tesla were still more available than other brands. The rest of the time you've been able to order and either get one from stock or on the next delivery, so you can't really use that as a...

    So… Highland is out…

    They initially intended for the new S an X to have a yoke, and with that stalks would have been a bit awkward looking so they put controls on the yoke, like an F1 car I guess. They then carried that through to the wheel that replaced the yoke, and from there it is now just part of Tesla's design...

    Model 3 so likely to be different, but I had a creak from new that came from around the rear quarter window, fixed by Tesla with a load of foam tape inside.

    Model 3P resale prices

    The depreciation comes predominantly in the first year of ownership, so to step from an older Tesla into a 1 year old doesn't have the same sting. Plus if you fancy a change a 1 year old of other brands are even more depreciated. Also note that at the moment Tesla don't have an extended...

    2023 Holiday Update

    Unless your Churchill policy is worded differently to mine that clause doesn't apply (yet). If it was a self-driving car approved by the Secretary of State for Transport then you would need to keep the software up to date, but as it's not then the section does not apply.

    [UK] 2023.44

    I had a similar issue in 2022 when my car was new. They checked the cooling, replaced the Octovalve then finally replaced the AP computer as it's was determined that the cause was a faulty temperature sensor on the computers board.

    Tesla Alternative?

    I'm pretty much dressed the same now as I was 30 years ago, Jeans and T-Shirt. I don't agree that a car is a fashion accessory either. This a myth that legacy auto want you to believe to keep upgrading to the new shape of bent metal.

    Tesla Alternative?

    This is the kind of thinking that leads companies like BMW to keep making their grill bigger, fundamentally their cars are the same but they make incremental, benefit-less changes so that people can tell that this is the new shape car and that one is the old shape. I'm quite happy that is not a...

    Tesla Alternative?

    I think you are apply legacy-auto logic to Tesla, what are you defining as progress ? Other companies will take an existing model and make relatively small bodyshell changes, update the software, and call it an entirely new model. Take the Fiesta being retired for Puma to take over, it's the...

    No Apple spacial (how would that work, sound changes when you turn :) or lossless in the Tesla Apple Music app, and if you connect via Bluetooth then that will be limited anyway.

    They turn off if they see another cars lights, they don't turn off for streetlights in my experience, although I've not tried in .9 When they are on the left stalk will turn them on and off, so it's easy enough to opt out if they are doing something you don't like.

    Sainsbury's Launch Own-Brand Charging Network

    He said a Latte, mentioned the ingredients being beans and milk and feeling sorry for people that don't have a coffee machine, so it's not likely to be an instant coffee. His analogy gets better when you consider the coffee machine probably cost about the same or more than a home charger. Also...

    The UK Autonomous Vehicles Bill does not contain any new regulations, it simply instructs the Secretary of State for Transport to produce some and bring them back to parliament. There's nothing in the current bill to use until that happens.

    I would add, no one is telling anyone not to indicate at mini-roundabouts. What we are saying is there is no requirement to indicate left when on the mini-roundabout to leave, and very often it's not remotely practical. As such it's less likely than some people imagine to need to operate the...

    [UK] 2023.44

    It's not really born out by the numbers though, there were significantly fewer updates in 2023 than 2020, so updates are now really coming slower than before. 2020 30 2021 26 2022 28 2023 21 It's always needed about 5 attempts before they move onto the next update.
