    Buying the car without tracking ships? (thank you for your services btw). Perhaps getting the car in the same month the order was placed?

    It's definitely made buying a Tesla a memorable experience for me. Glad others are in the same boat (pardon the pun).

    The key thing though is, will the latest Model 3s have the new door open-button graphic that the Model Ys have? (If you don’t know what I’m talking about see the latest Tesla Time News about 8 min in)

    My car arrived today - I can confirm I got USB C and Wrieless charging. My VIN was 75. Feel a bit mixed. Paint looks great apart from a scratch inside the drivers door frame. Panel gaps alright as is door alignment. Rear wheel arch has either a lump of paint or weld on the bottom of it. So a little bit mixed.

    35 SR+ and P's on inventory at the moment, no LR though. Do they make the three different models in batches and ship them over?

    Hopefully, RCC Asia has a shed load of LR's onboard.

    QQ to those receiving Tesla’s this week/next, are you switching to something like Octopus Energy? Any guidance on best provider for charging?

    Yes Octopus Energy seems to be the go to provider. I too just switched from British Gas and I was a loyal customer of 16 years!

    It’s really good value and green energy and there are referral links that get you £50 credit and same for the person who referred you.

    If you have a smart meter then you can go for the plan that allows 5p k/w during 12am-7am.

    If not, sign up and then request a smart meter and then you can switch to the tariff.

    I crunched the figures on my usage with octopus and my previous provider and the difference without my EV was enough to warrant the change. I'm waiting for my smart meter to be installed to then switch over to their agile tariff, which I'll then benefit from their reduced rates price at certain times, and it can hit negative numbers (ie you're paid to use your electric).
    Even if you don't switch to agile, go seems a reasonable tariff too. However once again you'll need a smart meter.
    Hope that helps.

    Have a look at their beta tariffs, Go, Agile and Tracker.

    You'll need to sign up to their standard tariff to start with but can switch over to Go or Agile once you have a compatible smart meter installed.

    Agile rates change every 30 minutes so you can plan your car charging around the cheapest times and use the ev.energy app to manage this.

    My electricity bills are now less than before I had an electric car purely because I'm taking more of an interest in how to consume it smartly.

    Yes, picking up on Tuesday and switched over at the start of this month and get smart meter installed on the 24th so I can move onto Octopus Go tariff. They’ve been faultless during the switch and don’t forget to use someone’s referral so both parties get £50 credited to their account.

    Are there any must-have accessories? The only thing I’ve got so far is a set of jack pucks.

    Hi all

    New here - just wanted to share that I put in an order for a red M3LR with 19" wheels on 7 August, and got a delivery confirmation via text moments ago. Picking up 11 September.

    Hilariously fast or hilarious lucky?
