That would explain why mine hasn’t been matched. Guess we’ll be getting the new number plates, then!I spoke with the online chat folks just now also. They were unable to match me with a red LR with tow hitch from current batch.
Said that the next batch was probably arriving around end Feb
The MIC SR+ cars have up to now had the LFP battery - I'll not say whether that's a better or worse battery, but I would suggest you look into it. The LFP battery is heavier, but can charge it to 100% more freely but on the flip side some have reported its less happy in the cold with slower charge rates and worse cold weather performance.
Thanks for the reply, I really hope so but my reading of other articles implies LG ? how did you get to that answer of Panasonic 82 kWh from MIC LR M3’s.
Spoke to Tesla chat, I'm unmatched. White LR everything else standard. Said I'll be matched next month, so I guess I'm not on this shipment
I'd quite like the heated steering wheel which seems to be more likely in a Chinese car, so I'll wait. Thanks though
if you look on Tesla-info
2021 Tesla M3 Long Range AWD in GB listed at £46,990
it says it’s China made and has the suspected heated steering wheel manufacturing code
Odd, if it matches my spec why hadn't Tesla matched me with it?
You could always get the reference to the inventory car and contact them as I wouldn’t personally recommend the second order route, or check with them that they’ll happily refund the second deposit
According to Tesla web chat, that inventory car doesn't have a heated steering wheel, but a new custom order model 3 will... So I'll stick to my custom order for nowAs George says, just contact Tesla and ask to be matched to the inventory car. I've seen that done by others on here more than once.
