The final cut of the 9th episode of the Tesla Motors Club Podcast, featuring Chad Schwitters, the former president of Plug In America, is now available. You can watch it now on YouTube or listen to it on all major podcast networks.
I wanted to offer my assistance to any potential new owners of Tesla's or any other EV's to help them navigate their first few steps into EV ownership. I live in SW London so happy to meet if you are local or can communicate over phone etc if you aren't.
Am happy to answer any questions or...
I’m thinking there will be a lot of folk from last years big Sept delivery of M3s trying to do this just now!
Just received my tfl email reminding me that my ‘cleaner vehicle discount’ is ready for renewal and to go online to do it.
I have been online into my tfl account and it is driving me...
Looking for comparables on insurance premium...
Just coming up for renewal on my previous Direct Line insurance and just wanted to see if it’s comparable to others.
I had a small car previously, and had a telematics policy which bagged me a 30% discount...
So I’m under 30 but over...
Just got a M3!
I did some reading online about how people recommend washing teslas and was a little intimidated by how difficult it seems to do a good job. I also don't have access to a hose as I only have street parking.
With that in mind, does anyone have any recommendations for a...

I've had my midnight silver Model 3 for 2 weeks now and LOVE IT! A mate works at Tesla in San Jose and I drove a pre-production one in California in late 2017, and put my deposit down a few days later. I was super impressed and still am.
Anyway, I'd like to get it 'de-chromed' as I think...
Hi Guys , I have just recently received my invite to configure my M3 and now that I have the order setup its time to think about chargers.
Where did you guys go for chargers? I was looking at the Tesla charger but not sure if you get the rebate on it?
It wasnt until I was on here that it...

I'm new to the world of tesla and new to the forum.
So I took the plunge and sold my bmw i8 after only 12 months of ownership and depreciation of £45,000 (ouch).
It all happened as a result of test driving the p100d model S which just made every other experience i have...
I live in London and conscious streets are narrow especially with street parking.
Tesla cars are not necessarily small especially in width.
Can you share your experience of driving, parking and living in London with a Tesla

It would appear that London needs more electric cars and fewer diesel ones. As a bicycle commuter since 1978 I have a particular hatred of diesels. Around...
Anyone know where I can rent, at a cheap price, a Tesla from the 17th for a week?
I have Teslaitis and I can't stand the thought of renting an ICE car while my Tesla sits in my garage at home in Toronto.
I've seen prices ranging from 1300-1700 Pounds but that is way too expensive. That's...
We're crossing the Pond again for a visit and had so much fun with fellow rEVolutionaries (mostly from SpeakEV, though @dpeilow is a TMC and SpeakEV guy (like me)) that we wanted to see if we can do another Social and Drinks.
This time, Clapham. Due to a Personal issue, we had to...
in anticipation t receiving my car sometime end of the year of early next year.
Does anyone have a recommendation fro a car detailer near London (UK)?
amongst other things I am looking to do a full Xpel Stealth wrap + Cquart Finest coating
1986 White London Sterling Limousine with Gray Interior. Estimated 100 produced, this was number 68 production according to the plaque in the back seat. Only 16,374 original miles! Passed MA inspection in 2005. Minibar cabinet in backseat. Needs some body work (sand off rust and paint) and some...
We've ordered a P90D in the last couple of weeks. Mostly fully spec'd but w/o Ludicrous.
The website said Feb 2017, although I am taking that with a grain of salt
I don't know if there are other Britons meandering around on these forums but if so, I would be interested to know:

I've just had my Model S (Deep Blue Metalic) delivered and am absolutely loving it. Unfortunately, it got covered in tree sap at the weekend. While I've had it washed since, I've started thinking about paint protection/detailing.
My local carwash has recommended AutoGlym/Supagard...
Bad news for all those "ECO" hybrids, as London is now to start charging £11.50 per day for any car with any tail pipe emissions. I currently drive a Leaf, and have ordered a Model 3, so I am quietly smug about this fact.
Hybrids are a step backwards, its a bit like saying you can swim, but...
Has anyone had experience of driving a Model S from London down through France to the Alps (3 Valleys ski resorts)? I've driven it often in an ICE car and know the route reasonably well but am thinking of doing it this winter in a Tesla (P90D). It looks like the superchargers are well spaced...
So after the waiting, my 90D is finally being collected this Friday afternoon! Super excited, particularly as it might have the v7 software, great timing!
I'm actually going to a function in Manchester on Saturday evening so planning on driving up Saturday afternoon from Uxbridge /...
I saw my first ever Model S out in the wild today whilst walking along Petty France. I was beginning to think the only appear at the Westfield charging stations. My Model S is due in December and I'm doing my best to remain patient...
I was driving up the M4 towards London on Saturday - intending to charge at Reading. Halfway there, I see the Reading SuC symbol on the Nav app is greyed out. Eeek! Zoom out to find this... (sorry about the quality)...
Even more 'Eeek!'. Anyway, I had my CHAdeMo adaptor so I thought...
Hi, I'd welcome any tip-offs from our London friends regarding reasonably priced hotels in London with EV charging on premises or near by. My 70D should arrive in August and the first lengthy road trip we'll be taking involves a 225 mile trip from the Wirral to my brother - in - laws wedding at...
This is my first post, yey!! Anyway, was wondering does anyone have a set of 21 Inch Turbine Grey Wheels that they are willing to sell? I would welcome any feedback, including if this Post is in the wrong section and if I need to look else where. Thank you all.
P.S My Tesla Model S...

I'm calling BS.
1) If you can't find destination charging in Amsterdam it's a bad job. There are thousands of places.
2) It's 125 driving miles between the Ghent and Maidstone superchargers. I could get that from a P85...
I saw that supercharge.info has London Kentucky as "under construction." I spoke to a few of my family members that live about an hour from there to see if they can stop by and check it out. I said take plenty of pictures. Hopefully I'll hear from one of them soon.
I'm currently visiting London from the NL and have to say that I'm struggling with the London Superchargers. Yesterday charged at The Crystal = 84kW with a starting range of 50km typical. 2nd Tesla arrived & my power dropped to 24kW. Gave up after a while.. Can better charge at Ikea, at least...
Dear UK Tesla Owners,
My son (27 years old) is looking to rent an apartment in London that is around $1300-1500 US Dollars. Is that possible and if so does anyone have any recommendations or know of anyone who has a monthly rental unit?
Thanks so much!

Maybe Tesla recently updated the supercharger map, but I didn't think I saw these locations on the map previously. Anyways, looks like there may be three Ontario superchargers coming soon. Anyone know word about construction status?
