    Hello,

    I had similar questions that I asked at my orientation mornign. As explained to me by my delivery specialist:

    All the lamps are LEDs and hence unlikely to fail. AFAIK spare bulbs are only a legal requirement for external incandescent lamps.

    Locking wheel nuts are a cost-option that can be ordered at a service centre. Speak to your delivery specialist to have them fitted before delivery.

    EU-standard warning triangle, hi-vis jacket, first aid kit are included (in the frunk, IIRC).

    As of April, S and X come with the Tesla Mobile Connector with a 13A UK mains adaptor and your choice of a 32A single phase blue "commando" plug or a 16A three phase red commando (specify before delivery with your delivery specialist). You can order additional adaptors (for example a european "Schuko" and the three phase commando in addition to the single-phase and domestic 13A) to be supplied at delivery for additional cost.

    Also as of April, S and X come with a Mennekes type-2 to type-2 3-phase, 32A cable for use with public charging stations.

    If you do lots of rural driving, I'd suggest the CHAdeMO adaptor also as you can then use non-Tesla fast DC chargers such as Ecotricity's Electric Highway network. It's an expensive option (~£350 I think) but could be worth it if your usage pattern keeps you away from superchargers and destination chargers but is within range of third party fast charging.

    Hope that helps :)

    Many thanks for your great reply.
    The reason I mentioned the bulbs is that on the continent you have to carry spare bulbs red triangle breatherlysers hi vis etc.
    I will mainly be charging from home on the tesla wall charger and the superchargers
    Thanks for your helpful advice

    I also find this law/advice puzzling. I have a 20 year old kit of incandescent bulbs which probably would satisfy a local policeman and obey the rules to carry them, but those bulbs just do not fit any modern car fitted with LED lights.

    The AA website has advice on what are legal requirements country by country. Eg in France you must carry breathalysers, in date, but there is no fine if you don't have them.

    Regards,

    Tony
