Congratulations! You’ll be one happy model 3 owner I’m sure. For what it’s worth, I got my reg the day before my pick up date, so there’s plenty of time yet 👍🏻

Thanks MarkP3D
That has reassured me some. Starting to get a little excited now!!
Not a problem. When I picked my up there was a guy there who had broken his phone, so didn’t get his reg till on the day, and then the service center let him use a phone to ring up for insurance, so it can be done last minute. You’ll love the car, trust me!

Ok have the car now, fantastic car really pleased. The pickup in Southampton was fine, no flowers, no fanfare but just nice friendly people. A word of warning to those about to order a Tesla do not buy accessories until you have the car.
Tesla have a habit of making subtle changes, so I have frunk mat that does not fit and a Taptes usb hub thing that no longer fits a 2020 model 3. So anybody in the Southampton area with an earlier mode 3 who need these please contact.

I was going to ask how it went yesterday - glad for you it went well. Collecting mine on the 8th but from London Park Royal. I would have preferred Southampton (I work there) but I don't think it was an option back in May when I placed the order. Thanks for the advice regarding accessories - all I have so far is a back seat cover for the dog 🐶

I put my deposit on a M3LR in mid-April and managed to get a test drive from Southampton docks in mid-July when the delivery hub had just opened.
Before the drive started I mentioned I had already purchased one and was going to collect from West Drayton - the guy there said I could change to Southampton.
I pick up my M3 from Southampton next Monday afternoon :)

Have you got the new design (model Y like) frunk?

Taptes have two versions of the hub, one with a usb C & usb A at the rear. Have Tesla changed it again, or have you got the older hub with just the two usb A connectors?

Hi Spike, Yes i have the new frunk design like the model Y. And yes I have the hub with the two type A usb connectors.
The car has one C and one A. I should have done more research!! Didn't realise Taptes did two types.The car comes with a wireless phone charger also. Bought some mud flaps they don't fit either. Car comes with front mudflaps although they are not a particularly good fit

Being supplied with front mud flaps sounds like a new feature.. Wonder when that changed.

I’ve seen something about the Lowe bolt for the rear flap no longer being needed, just the clips.
