  1. Tesla UK - PCP Mileage Question

    Tesla Model S
    Hi everyone :) I'm looking to place an order on a new S75 in the next week or so but I'm just a little confused regarding the mileage allowance. For the colour / options I've chosen with a £12k deposit it comes to £550 a month with a 10,000 mile allowance but if I change that to 20,000 miles...

    Tesla Model S

  4. Tesla Model S P100D Runs 10.638 @ 124.65mph

    Tesla Model S
    For daily drivers, our Teslas are a no compromise vehicle. They don't have the top end of high hp drag monsters like the GTR or the Lamborghini, but around town at speeds under 100mph in real world street conditions (especially rain) they are nearly unbeatable. Thank you Tesla for this great...
  5. New look for my Model S

    Tesla Model S
    As much as I like the factory look of the older Model S, I'm thinking it's time for an image change. Face lift to make it look like the newer Model S is an option but wanted to consider a different route as well. I found an article about a chrome wrapped Model S in Japan and saw that they were...

    Tesla Model S
    So here we are exactly one year on from the S90 appearing on my driveway – so what is the experience / learning for someone like me with a relatively low annual mileage? 1. I would change nothing of the specification that I made – I learnt early on that the choice of specification is very...

  14. Headlights - do people flash you when you are dipped?

    Tesla Model S
    I live in the countryside and drive a lot in the dark on unlit roads, I find I get flashed quite a lot by people who think my headlights are not dipped (when they are) I have checked the alignment of the lights and they are correctly set i.e. they aren't too high in the dipped position. They...
  15. Ultra High Fidelity Sound System - are there any visible differences?

    Tesla Model S
    Had a the car, a 90D, a couple of weeks now and its a bit early to draw too many conclusions ...... BUT One thing both the wife and myself do already agree on is that we are unimpressed with the quality of the Ultra High Fidelity Sound System, to the extent that I am wondering whether it is...
  16. Premium Rear Console for Model S

    Tesla Model S
    We have quickly realised that if you have kids in the back of your Model S regularly then you need to come up with an aftermarket storage solution as there appears to be ZERO storage of any kind in the back. No storage bins in doors, no pockets in the seat backs, no centre console and no cup...

  20. Viewing interior temperature from App

    Tesla Model S
    Not sure if it is my car, my App, just Android or what? It being a "touch warm" today I have been making use of remotely turning the climate on a few minutes before using the car & noticed that that interior temperature is sometimes shown and sometimes not shown. It does not seem to depend on...
