    St Leonards sales now shut on Saturday

    FYI, I went to the St Leonards showroom in Sydney yesterday. My main reason to visit was to test out supercharging on my new Model S. I'm taking a road trip and wanted to be sure it all worked flawlessly (it did). But I was also going to buy a CCS charge adapter while I was there. The store info...

    Recommended Sydney Installers for Dash Cam

    Anyone able to recommend a dash cam installer in Sydney for a Model X? I see the Blackvue DR650GW-2CH is pretty popular, and after watching US videos could probably self-install, but I'd prefer to pay someone to do it professionally so the cables get cleanly embedded in the windshield trunking...

    Brand New HPWC for sale Sydney

    Hi I'm aware of the "parts for sale" thread on the main forums, but I assumed that Australian sales would be swamped on that US-centric forum. So mods, move this if it seems differently to you. I have a brand new, in unopened box Wall Connector (TESLA PN: 1050067-01-E) for sale in Sydney. Aussie...

    Last minute Sydney to Canberra...should I stop at Goulburn?

    We've just decided to go visit our friends in Canberra and managed to book a two-bedroom at Hotel Realm at the last minute tonight. We don't love this hotel - it already seemed fairly tired when we stayed not long after it opened - but it has a Tesla destination charger so that is enough for us...

    Car Cleaner, Sydney

    Does anybody have a car cleaner they would recommend in Sydney? I need to get "The Homer" cleaned and I've run out of excuses to take her into Tesla for minor fixes and scam a free clean at the same time.

    Is driving from Sydney to (nearly) Newcastle and back possible?

    Next weekend we have a thing on at Caves Beach, just south of Newcastle. EVTripPlanner shows 402 rated kilometres and total energy of 75 kWh. So on that basis "The Homer" should be able to make it. But it would be the longest trip I've taken on a single charge and it won't be possible to charge...

    Sydney to Port Macquarie & beyond in a P85D

    My first long drive, to Port Macquarie and on to Byron. A few things really stood out: 1. Sydney to Port Macquarie in a P85D is a stretch until the Superchargers are operational. It was lucky I charged up at the Stockland Glendale Chargepoint. In the 2 hours I spent there, I added...

    I'm from Sydney, thinking of buying it in ACT to save on stamp duty + CTP

    Hi all, Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I'm sure I can find a friend willing to lend me their address in ACT, and then I can buy the car in ACT and save about $6k in stamp duty and CTP, as the ACT is better in this regards for environmentally friendly vehicles. I'm assuming the charger...
