    Welcome, I echo everyone else's comments. I've had my SR+ for 13 months now and haven't had to get Tesla involved for anything.

    Don't forget to use a Tesla referral link code BEFORE you start ordering. It's an actual link you need to click on to start the order process. It will give you over 1,500KM of free Supercharging. PM me if you would like my referral code.

    My LR Model 3 is almost 12 months old now and has been flawless. No panel gaps, misalignment or any obvious build quality issues.

    OK, not quite flawless, the tyre pressure warning indicator icon is permanently lit up on the central screen. But that's a minor annoyance. Tesla didn't know how to fix it when I took delivery (they tried resetting the TPMS but that didn't clear it) and said if it bothers me they'll have another look at it if I want to bring it in. The TPMS works, the car reports the pressures correctly, but the warning icon is stuck.

    Do you have total Tesla shipments to NZ? Curious to know if their “per capita” Tesla penetration is higher or lower. In terms of BEV overall, NZ is way ahead of us per-capita.

    Even better is the OpenData portal. You can break down the data however you like and get details on specific models for a specific time period

    There are about 2,000 Tesla's in New Zealand, the numbers sold are new sales only and do not include private imports.

    Lets face it,

    How many thieves would know exactly where to place the Tesla Key Card on the car to unlock it?

    Opportunistically - not many.

    But if you've been handed a card the day before (as I suspect happened in this case), even dumb thieves can use YouTube.

    So my Model 3 performance was built October 2019. Does that mean it has the noisemaker? PXL_20201226_083527378.jpg

    Look under the panels.
    Afaik all non-US models will have the holes and likely wiring harness, but no speaker.

    There is no speaker in the Aust Model 3's

    Yeah, I went to the effort of looking behind there. There is the wiring harness, but the speaker is missing.

    Wiring harness you say? That gives hope for an easy upgrade! Although it's a case of careful what you wish for. As much as I want to make my horn a goat noise, I'm still not keen on the actual primary purpose of the speaker.

    I have changed my mind about this. I used to love the idea of being silent at low speeds, but now I think we need the option to make a noise.
    Pedestrians can't hear me at low speeds- they are completely safe because I am not going to run them down, but if I end up driving behind them, I have to drive at walking speed until they realise I'm there- or until they change direction!
    The horn is too loud for warning them- scares the crap out of them.
    So I WANT a low-speed, soft noise I can toggle on or off to let them know I'm there.

    We don't want this. Drive for the environment you are in. If it gets on the gov radar and gets implemented, you can be sure there will be no toggle to turn it off and will more likely become law.
