    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    Has it officially been confirmed that we are getting North Bound Tesla Superchargers?
  2. Model 3 Performance Range

    Tesla Model 3
    My usage as follows:- Departure set to 08:00am with SoC of 80% I actually leave at around 08:30am to do the school run, about 1.6 miles. Then from there I do around 48 miles to work, arrive at the office around 1000am with around 55-60% SoC. Leave work around 1800pm with about 50-55% SoC and...
  3. Happy With The Fob

    Or when you come off the accelerator thinking regen will slow you do... then realising ... no.... and have to slam on the brakes to avoid rear ending a bus! lol
  4. Happy With The Fob

    Tesla Model 3
    Totally agree, each time a drive a normal ICE car, it feels and sounds like a dinosaur :D lol
  5. Happy With The Fob

    Tesla Model 3
    Easy.. just press and hold down the trunk button until it opens / unlocks :D One of the main reasons I bought it and the fact I have to leave my phone locked in the car sometimes. I told a work colleague about this trick on his Model X which has owned for years... he was jumping with joy when he...
  6. Happy With The Fob

    Tesla Model 3
    I am finding the Tesla key fob great too. To be honest, I had no issues with my iPhone setup but the key fob allows you to perform tasks quicker including the opening / unlocking of the charge port. :)
  7. Tesla releases Auto wiper update trained by new deep neural net

    Tesla Model 3
    Interesting, I don't find the wipers that bad, and this is comparing to my 2016 Volkswagen Golf R. The same goes for the adaptive cruise control. I would say they are about 10-20% worse compared to the Golf R, so hopefully Tesla can get it right in upcoming firmware upgrades.
  8. Do we know yet how much the ID. 3 1st Edition will cost?

    Volkswagen ID.3
    If the Volkswagen ID3 1st Edition Plus is priced less then £35,000, I think it would be a good price point. :)
  9. Do we know yet how much the ID. 3 1st Edition will cost?

    Volkswagen ID.3
    I think ever bodies wants and looks for different attributes in a car before they buy, I set my expectations low with Tesla knowing that the bulk of the money is going towards the technology, batteries, drive-train, motors etc and that the interior fit and finish including quality wouldn't be as...
  10. Model 3 scheduled charging and Octopus.

    Tesla Model 3
    So after some testing, my last charge failed to meet its target of 80% SoC by 0800am. It got to 70%. I have reported this to SmartEV. :)
  11. Do we know yet how much the ID. 3 1st Edition will cost?

    Volkswagen ID.3
    Nothing wrong with my Model 3, its actually better than anything I have owned from Volkswagen in the past!
  12. ID3 in UK showroom ?

    Volkswagen ID.3
    Plenty of options coming next year.... Honda E, Mini-e, MG, Corsa e etc
  13. Do we know yet how much the ID. 3 1st Edition will cost?

    Volkswagen ID.3
    It's all speculation at the moment until firm UK prices are announced. However you have to remember that the Model 3 SR+ is a much bigger car and has great performance, so comparing the two might be prove difficult purely based on price alone.
  14. Model 3 scheduled charging and Octopus.

    Tesla Model 3
    Hi all, I have been in contact with SmartEV recently regarding how the Smart Charging functions weren’t playing nicely with the new Tesla Scheduled Charging feature. They have made some back end changes and as of last night, I have started using the SmartEV smart features again as a test to see...
  15. Tesla Model 3 Paint Defects

    Tesla Model 3
    My Model 3 in Multi-coat Pearl White seems a pretty good finish from both a paint and build perspective. I do feel that the earlier cars are the ones to watch out for, my VIN is in the 500xxx range.
