PLEASE BE AWARE! Further to my post in the M3P thread this morning, I would suggest that anyone who has ordered one needs to check with Tesla about the price they’ll be paying! I have since spoken to them again afternoon and despite definitely ordering my car at the pre-increase price on January 3rd with my HP finance through them approved on the 4th, I will now have to pay the revised price as it’s apparently in their terms and conditions!

I have finally taken the plunge and ordered an M3 LR AWD in white with all black interior and 18", so mostly just a basic M3.
Your to do list looks very much like mine. I already have PV panels so the Zappi is the one for me.
Just watched the video about mudflaps and they seem to work really well.
But will white or black flaps look better on white?
The order process has gone ok so far. Just before I said yes I would order, the rep told me they had reduced the price by another £1500, so then its a no brainer. I got the VIN within a few hours and am now waiting for the email with a delivery date.
Which charge provider are you thinking of going with? or more than one?
Congrats on the order.

I have the Zappi and other than a few quirks it is working for me. Need to find a minute to ask some questions on it. I have the PV but tend to charge up at night on the Octopus Go (as mentioned we all have the referrals in our profiles), although with generation increasing recently with the few sunny days, I may switch to solar only. If I switch I will charge the house battery on the Go tariff as that is a 30% cheaper power so making a saving for a few hours. I set the Zappi to eco+ mode and the charging rate basically follows the excess generated so it works as well if not better than expected.

My mudflaps are irritating they ground as I go over the hump on the drive, need to think what I'm going to do.

Charge providers look to many and varied and I am still not driving that far but with the easing of lockdown that will hopefully change. I've setup an Octopus Juice account so you can use their app to pay and various different providers. There are others that do multiple providers out there as well. My thought process as noob in this world, is is that I will plan in advance and use my supercharger credit when needed. The other providers are where I can't supercharge and will then plan another provider, so do I have a card or account for them. I was surprised that the charging providers offer the cheapest rates if you subscribe to them, given I'm doing little regular driving I can't see that working for me.

In relation to the Zappi, I’d recommend asking questions on the MyEnergi forum. There are a number of us who are on both forums so there’s a fair bit of experience relating to both how the Zappi works and how it behaves with Teslas.

I thought I'd start with RTFM before asking on the MyEnergi forums. Life is to busy at the moment so maybe being the dumb guy who didn't read the manual is the way to go!

it should behave itself now - either leave it on fast mode and let the Tesla schedule charge, or use eco+ and the zappi timers and the Tesla should wake up to charge. Either way always worth doing a dry run when you don’t *need* a guaranteed charge just to check

The other method is to call Darren, Tech Support at Myenergi on 0333 300 1303 (I think it's option 2, the other Tech is called Chis). He was incredibly helpful in setting up my Zappi & also on a couple of other occasions when I had a query.

Charging I think I have sorted my question is why do I have to enter the pin twice after I plug into charge! Nooo must go and read manual now.... see what you made me do posted off topic and didn't RTFM!

Hey mate, I ordered the car through the NHS lease so works a bit different. Ordered it end of Feb so was hoping to get luck with end of March shipment but doesn't look like it.
I'd still have a look at inventory, if there is a car that matches your order then I'd give them (NHS lease provider) a prod with a link to the car (just make sure its not a demo car as Tesla list demo as "New".) The whole order/matching to stock thing is clunky at times and people have ordered inventory and got them quicker than people who did customer orders and sat waiting for months.

I will have a quick look, thank you buddy.

I found a car that matches my description. Just not sure how the lease company take it, the car is in London, so not sure if they would for it. The main problem is that NHS deals with fleet solutions who use another lease company so it is so difficult to get hold of them. I will send them an email with the link and see if there is a response. Thank you again buddy.

Oh really? How comes? I just hate not knowing. I don't even mind if they tell me you will have it in May , June or July, but not knowing kills me.

They may be anywhere - possibly still down in Southampton. They aren't registered so can be registered to you as first owner. So they can just be put on a transporter to the local delivery centre

Indeed, Tesla say they are happy to move any inventory to your local outlet/centre
Yes, my local SC is Stockport* found a car to my spec in West Drayton, I transferred the money that day & it was delivered less than 48 hours later by trailer (lockdown 1). Properly PDI & cleaned too, virtually perfect condition & constant updates from Tesla during the three days - faultless service.

*was...Chester is almost ready to open, I hope they are as customer focused as Stockport.

Wow, things seem to be happening quickly for me!

Car ordered Thursday afternoon, expected delivery June. Just had a text asking me to fix up an appointment to collect it on either 15 or 17 May!

I went for 17 which is a Monday on the basis it might be less busy than on the Saturday 15th..

Happy days 😎😎
