    If you are in Ireland, and interested in FSD option, don't buy it until AFTER delivery

    I learned today (thanks to Anton at Tesla Sandyford) that FSD added when ordering the car adds about ~1000 euros worth of VRT (vehice registration tax) to the total price of the car. On the other hand, the upgrade to FSD after delivery, is "only" 6500 euros including VAT. No VRT added. I guess...

    How to save thousands on Tesla UK PCP finance

    When I signed up for PCP finance with Tesla (Blackhorse) in February, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the excess mileage charges have reduced to a flat unlimited 7p/mile, where it was previously 7p/mile for the first 5K excess miles and then 14p/mile for any additional excess above that...

    Is it me or.......

    Ever since the I pace launch my ms 75d seems a bit faster. I had never experienced my front end slightly lifting under 0-60 acceleration but it did on Saturday and again yesterday. I haven't checked the timing but defiantly seems a bit quicker. Has anyone else experienced this in the last few...

    Least miles to a full charge?

    charged car to 90% on a model s 75D. Bearing in mind average temp about -3. So far done 20 miles and now at 60% lots of preheating and short journeys over several days.at this rate I will be lucky to get 60 miles. It got me wondering if anyone can get worse than me.

    First real snow experience

    The Beast from the East has given me a first real snow and ice experience. P100D MS on Michelin Pilot SS summer tyres. Compared to a previous Range Rover, the straight line traction control is amazingly seamless. Mash in the pedal and the traction control light flashes wildly, but the car just...

    Easy entry and charge port open

    I use and like easy entry profile. Particularly since it arrived in an over the air update - very smart. It’s better too, since the update that made unbuckling your seat belt the trigger to change profile, rather than pressing the park brake. However, I don’t want to move to easy entry when...

    Model 3 UK reservation holders

    Hi all, Been reading this forum for a while now, finally got round to signing up. Just wondering if there's (m)any other UK based Model 3 reservation holders on here? Also what the anticipation is in terms of cost (monthly cost on PCP or whatever Tesla offers)? I jumped on the bandwagon and...

    Any Car Meets or Events?

    I was just wondering if there are any car meets or events near South Wales? I'm a massive Tesla fan but I'm only 21 and have no chance of getting one until the Model 3 has been out for a little while. I'd do anything to sit in one or get to feel the acceleration! I know Tesla have events...

    How much do you think a used Tesla Model 3 would be worth in 3/4 years time?

    First of all hi:p, this is my first post. I was wondering how much everyone thinks a used Tesla Model 3 would be in like 3/4 years time. I know production of right hand drive Model 3's doesn't start until next year but I was curious as I'm a huge Tesla fan. I'm hoping for them to be around the...

    Sat nav turn-by-turn not counting down distances?

    Driving recently I noticed on the main screen sat nav that the distance to the next turn or junction was not updating. The turn-by-turn list shows the length of each step in the journey. Usually the distance to the next event counts down towards zero as you arrive at the turn or junction but...

    Wheel spacers, who’s running them?

    I’m thinking about fitting wheel spacers on my P85D (staggered 21” turbines) as I hate the way the wheels sit in the arches. Anyone else running them on here? What sizes?

    Model S Trip details

    While I am waiting delivery of my MS75D, I have, like many other before me, been reading the manual from cover to cover :) When I use my car for work I need to accurately record my mileage (and claim the pennies back;)). On my present car I reset Trip A each morning, do my visits for work then...

    Paintless Dent Removal

    Hi All, Do you guys/gals have any recommendations for paintless dent removal around the Reading area? Would prefer to use someone who is used to working on aluminium cars, rather than a bodyshop that will give it a go! Thanks, Alex

    Which ship is my car on?

    Hello all. I received a call this morning from the delivery team as my car has been loaded onto a vessel at Houston and is en route to Europe.

    Undecided following test drive of both S and X

    I took the plunge of going for a Test drive of both S and X. First drove a blue 90D, black premium interior. Was very impressed. I'm used to driving a hybrid SUV, so being low down took a little getting used to. Handling was great, quality of interior was better than I expected and 'luxury'...

    Well, what a position? After a long time lurking on here and also looking at Tesla's used vehicles, I decided to go and have a test drive. The car, 100D, was, as expected, a dream to drive and I was very impressed with the quality of build and the operation of 'Auto Pilot' was better than...

    Is Tesla offering destination chargers for work places?

    That's what I heard, and unless I am mistaken its what the website seems to say. https://www.tesla.com/en_GB/charging-partners?redirect=no Made an application and got a reply that they are only for Hotels and the like. Have I got the wrong end of the stick?

    How to cancel FM travel reports?

    Is there a way to reject traffic info bulletins that temporarily switch stations? If you have the media screen loaded on the main display, a pop up appears with a dialogue box when a traffic report is triggered so you can turn it off and go back to what you were listening to. BUT if you don't...

    Replacement numberplate

    Hi, Do you know where I can get an aluminium number plate made up? I've found loads of places online but they all do embossed, and I just want a flat printed plate like the Tesla original. It needs to be 520mm x 110mm. Does anyone know a supplier that can make these up. I'm not sure Tesla...

    Tesla moving used inventory onto Autotrader

    Tesla have never previously really used Autotrader or any of the other site except for a spell where they listed new cars as place holders. Over the last week they've started to move quite noticeable numbers off their web site and onto autotrader, still selling as Tesla with all the warranty...

    Unfortunately I had the misfortune of meeting a driver in a Chelsea Tractor in a narrow street tonight. After moving over as much as I could, I pulled in the mirrors to avoid scratching them. That meant that I could not longer judge the gap at the reat of the car and we continued to edge past...

    Gap insurance for Model S?

    Considering gap insurance for my upcoming Model S 75D delivery. Any recommendations, thoughts you can share on the subject, or things I must know before exploring further? Not bought it before as having a car written off doesn't seem that likely an event. With previous cars I've had any gap...

    Damage, insurance and approved garage

Damage seems farily limited to the rear bumper and a dented tailgate, and car is driveable. But my question is that Direct Line has told me to use a garage, I've checked and they...

    Just to let you know that the Westfield superchargers will not be available for two weeks as they resurface the carpark on level -1. I found this out this morning when I tried to get to the superchargers but couldn't. I haven't heard anything official from Tesla themselves on the topic.

    Price drops?

    Supercharger - Enfield, Ireland

    It looks like the "Enfield" dot on Tesla's official map is one of the very few that was not moved to "coming in 2018" status recently, and instead went direct to "coming soon" status. This suggests it is in the final stages of construction. In addition, the dot is located at the Applegreen...
