    Delays with supply parts

    Hi. My Tesla M3 is with body shop repair for past 2 months, as the parts they have ordered from Tesla are on ‘back order’. With these parts on being ‘back order’ , there is no time frame given on when these parts will be sent from Tesla. So I have no idea when my car will be repaired and so I...

    Will I get a glider trailer into the supercharging areas?

    I've recently ordered M3 AWD LR + towbar. Very excited and thinking about various practicalities. One of them is that I'm a glider pilot, and will be visiting other clubs around the country with my own glider, which is transported in a ~8m long trailer (this one, to be exact). This will...

    Bought 2017 MS 75D, in UK; process for getting set up with app & superchargers?

    I've now bought a 2017 MS 75D, really pleased so far. The main task still ahead of me is to register ownership with Tesla. I'd be grateful for help gaining clarity on what this involves. My understanding: The seller (dealer) will notify DVLA of the sale; I then get the V5C, perhaps within...

    Tesla Reportedly Building UK Plant Which May Or May Not Be A Gigafactory

    It could just be a research and development facility that could also produce battery packs. Have a grain of salt close to hand, because we’ve just caught wind that Tesla might be opening a new facility in Europe, after the one it’s currently building close to Berlin, in Germany. This one could...

    Has anyone in Europe, specifically the UK, received and installed the latest v9 update yet? My 2018 MX is currently on 2018.32.2, I gather 2018.39.whatever is imminent but being new to Tesla I don’t know if the US goes first and then it rolls out to the rest of the world?

    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...

    You You Xue - Model-3 UK Roadtrip

    In case not everyone knows? You You Xue took his M3 on a road trip across USA kindly showing it to people, and giving rides etc. That must have been a small "taster" project, because he is now shipping the car across the Pond to do a tour of Europe :cool: Dates have seemed to be a bit fluid...

    UK PCP return value deductions

    Trying to calculate whether to use cash or PCP for a new Model S... Does anyone have any experience in what sorts of wear and tear are considered fair by Tesla when returning a PCP car at end of term (assume 2-3 years)? For example, are they fairly tolerant or do they hit you with £500 for a...

    On a recent trip between Sydney and Brisbane (Australia) a distance of 915 Klms (569 Miles), I wanted to see the maximum time I could rely on autopilot AP1 (Classic front P90D). Where ever possible including through traffic congestion and country towns I used AP1, with my hand resting on the...

    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...

    Best energy provider for EVs

    hi all I’m currently with Brisitah Gas and just wondering if you’ve switched to better “cheaper” providers who work better for EV owners. I’m hoping to make most of charges at work for free but want to make sure I can charge at home cheaply.

    Interior ??

    Hey, If I add the £5,700 premium pack to a model X does this include the premium interior? I really like the dark ash trim/panel but unsure about textile seats? Am I right in thinking the textile seats are part textile and part “faux” leather anyway? That’s another thing paying £3100 for...

    Arachnids, unstaggered to staggered, alignment, winter-to-summer and back...

    Hello, Had a search around but couldn't find an answer that really covers this. Just picked up my extremely shiny set of Arachnid referral wheels and found out that, like the P-variant 21s, they are staggered front to back. Whilst I assume it's not an issue fitting a staggered set to a lowly...

    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...

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...

    No Traffic reports?

    I have traffic reports selected on but in the two months I have had the car I have only had one report? My BMW reports them all the time. My Tesla retail shop (Cambridge) said you have to have the radio screen showing to get them but that does not seem to make any difference. I use DAB rather...
