    RVG trade in and tyre condition

    I'm up for an RVG and Tesla are saying that my (roadworthy with a few mm to spare) tyres must be replaced at my cost, and have quoted 150% retail to do it after returning the car. Has anyone had any dealings with the " damage and excessive wear and use based on Tesla’s standards for normal use"...

    Supercharger - Devonport, Tas

    As mentioned in TOCA's April member update: Obviously Devonport was selected because it is the gateway into the state for Tesla owners bringing their car across on the ferry... not because of it's thriving Tesla population :) Precise location isn't public yet, but I couldn't go past the...

    Supercharger - Blaxland, NSW

    https://www.bmcc.nsw.gov.au/media-centre/electric-vehicle-charging-stations-for-blaxland I still find it weird that this this location has obviously been planned for a while but it didn't make it into Tesla's 2021 map! This location has now been added to supercharge.info.

    Supercharger - Brisbane 2 (Toombul), Qld

    As a Q1 2021 opening, though worth adding a Brisbane (Indooroopilly) thread as the site should be set, and possibly beginning to start construction. Pin is in the middle of the Audi dealership which is likely. The Westfield just to the south would be a more likely site. Maybe a local could do...

    Supercharger - Geelong, Vic

    As a Q1 2021 opening, though worth adding a Geelong thread as the site should be set, and possibly beginning to start construction. Pin on the Tesla site is shown to the SE close to the M1 in Highton, possibly near the Queen's Park Golf course. Spots close to that that might make sense would...

    Ultimate EV Road Trip - Circumnavigating North America

    Light bar upgrade in Aus: suggestions & where have you mounted your switch?

    Hi guys After a few near misses with skippies late at night recently I'm considering a light bar for the model 3 for under the front bumper lip. The high beam I think is great for distance, but I'm looking for something to illuminate the roadsides - and the fog lights are helpful, but not...

    Gold Coast Sales and Service Centre.

    Tesla just got the keys to their new Gold Coast sales and service centre located at Southport on the Gold Coast. It is the former Gold Coast BMW/Mini site. Superchargers are expected but it’s not confirmed if they will be for public use. (Probably will be). The location is expected to be...

    It looks like Western Australia's Eaton Supercharger is going to lose its coveted most isolated Supercharger in the world honor when Tesla installs a supercharger station at Williams Woolshed early next year.

    Supercharger - Frankston, Vic

    No location confirmed yet, but @jamesgo appeared to have a bit of an insight, going by his comment from the Camberwell thread: Notably on Tesla's map, the marker is not over the generic place name, but the nearby highway intersection. Perhaps the Karingal Hub would be a good place to start...
