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 a week.
  • I can then claim ownership via my Tesla account
  • At that point I can gain access to the car via the app; I can also use the superchargers
Does that sound right?

The car was registered on 28.3.2017 -- so, I won't lose the "free supercharging for life", correct?

The car was sold with EAP and premium connectivity -- will I lose those features on claiming ownership?

But even if I do lose them, I don't really have a choice, do I -- from what I gather, it's not as if I have much of a choice about registering ownership with Tesla, unless I'm willing to forego the superchargers and the app...
