    Hello

    What did people pay for the reservation of their model 3 in the UK? My card actually took out 718 pounds, which I guess converts to the 1000USD charge. It also charged me a conversion fee. Just wondering what other people's experiences were.

    Mine was £1000, did mine on the 31st at Solihull. Did you enter it on the UK or US page on the Tesla web page?

    I know this will be the case if you paid with American Express.
    But if you were charged a conversion fee then I don't know why or how.
    Probably depends on your bank.

    We paid via the UK Tesla motors page on 1st April, £1000 straight UK transaction with no conversion fee.

    It sounds like you may have reserved a car via the U.S. site? Maybe drop them an email to check that your car will be UK spec. otherwise, maybe you have found a cheaper way to reserve!

    Just received a call from Tesla - the reason for this is that I paid the deposit on an American Express card, so it defaulted to USD. He said it's fine and I have reserved the right car :)

    Interesting, I have an Amex card issued through Barclaycard which I used to put a M3 reservation. I've been charged £1k for it, not USD.
