I'm still down for this Thursday to be delivered to my home address, would anyone happen to know the process from the docks, i.e. do they trailer my vehicle to my local Tesla dealership, then the dealership checks the vehicle over and attaches the reg plates, then organise a trailered delivery to my home?

PS , I checked with the DVLA https://vehicleenquiry.service.gov.uk/ if my reg is showing up yet but no details can be found. Guessing this can take a week or so to be displayed.
The car will come direct from docks they finish bits off there .your car gets registered as you sign for it you may need to restart your phone app and car should be in it within an hour and registered

I have been told my car is going to be prepared in Glasgow, it’s not coming on a dedicated transport from the docks, it’s only being transported to me from Glasgow. Far more economical to do it that way and would be bonkers shipping cars individually from the docks.

Factor in that I’m probably 12 hours normal driving from Southampton which is likely three days in reality for someone driving with a Tacho and it makes even less sense.

1.5 tacho driving days from Southampton to Aberdeen is perfectly achievable with 10 hrs on Day 1 at 55mph, i know as i've done it, in fact i've done Southampton to Manchester in 4.5hrs but it was a Saturday morning.

I’m gutted the weather is turning! After all this sunshine, looks like we’ll be picking our cars up in the rain!
Think positive . ..a good test as the rainbow colours of paint chips and flakes wash down the gutters, followed by under trays scattered on the motorway. Wear your wellingtons for the carpets soggy from misaligned windows and bootsful of water...👿👿👿

I {jokingly} said last week, and when the totally unreliable BBC with their ‘most powerful weather computer in the world’ were stating an extended heat wave……I bet it all breaks down and rains

It’s looking soggy for most of us and the 22nd has gone from ‘chance’ of light showers in the afternoon to you will be wetter than an otters pocket 😡😭

Whatever the weather it can’t dampen the excitement 🎊 we’re British so just CARRY ON 😂😂

I quite liked the look of the black one on the official store. I haven't got it though as if you brand up too much you look like someone getting out of your Tesla, in a Tesla cap, Tesla t-shirt, Tesla brolly - not the best look.

I'm pretty sure I need a pointless Supercharger cable organiser for my desk though.

2 days to go!! Come on...........
