No, never.Has anyone tried booking in ICE car for a service,
For a routine service appointment? You must be confusing them with your GP. Book online at audi.co.uk and check the box marked "include availability for all nearby centres". Unless you live somewhere like Oban there'll be a dealer closer than your average SC (of which there are what, a dozen for the entire UK?). Even Jack Barclay Audi in Wandsworth, which is absolutely teeming with all sorts at all hours, have a slot for me at 8.15am this Friday. Try it yourself.the last time I booked my Audi in it was a ripoff and I had to wait 2 months, and no courtesy car/lift/pickup unless you pay.
Glad it's now gone I won't be going back.
Exactly. In fact, you don't have to be an owner to have the right to express an opinion, even if that is about a Tesla.I do own a Tesla, which gives me the right to form and express my opinions. I don't have "what it takes" to accept all the faults and failings in a £50k+ car without annoyance and disappointment ,and nor should any reasonable buyer be expected to. Try taking off the rose tinted spectacles and Teslerati T-shirt for a minute, valid criticism of Tesla is allowed, they are not as perfect as you think
Or you could own a Tesla and have great service and no outstanding issues. Imagine that?I would be a bad customer because I think it is TOTALLY unacceptable to pay that much for a car with all the issues which never will be fixed...
It's a bit of apples and oranges comparison... An old, used car compared a brand new one... Do you know ANYTHING about the service and owner/handling history of that BMW at all...? Personally I would not buy a second hand BMW BECAUSE of the risks involved in unknown previous ownerships. I know quite a few BMW owners and none of them had ANY problems over the last 4-5 years, all serviced their cars at certified BMW service points and handled their cars as I would, otherwise I would have been a bit more sceptical in buying one last year... But of course, there are lemons in every brand, even in BMW. The problem is that Tesla seems to have a LOT of different minor or major issues, which would really upset me as an owner.You mean like my work colleague at work ? owning a used bmw 330d last christmas turbo ate the engine, refurbished engine put in, last 2 weeks he has had intermittent trouble starting the car, changed starter, battery a relay, talked to a auto electrician, that told him to check for recall for that problem, and yes it has a recall for it, he is without the car this week since they have to take half the boot out to cut welding on the boot, change alot of the wire loom. after that they will still not guarantee that the problem is solved. And you think tesla has problems ? 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣 🤣
No, I can't imagine that, not with a Tesla. Did you read this thread...?Or you could own a Tesla and have great service and no outstanding issues. Imagine that?
You see, that sort of attitude makes me HAPPY of not owning one... I mean, really, why do some Tesla owners think that I care about if they think it is fine or not to NOT having a Tesla.... No one is forcing you to understand that there are other brand also, and paying that much for a car means I expect a bit higher quality than what Tesla is providing. I know some Tesla owners have issues understanding this approach.No-one's forcing you to understand this, nor does anyone particularly desire that you own one. It's OK.
Maybe that explains your attitude. Now you feel like you are a king. But that's OK, since it doesn't really matter. I still don't need your approval for NOT buying a Tesla.You know I have owned Zoes since 2015 and driven other cars?
Total cost £12k over 2 years for only 5k miles are yearOn topic, how about a nice e-tron on 9+23 for £304 plus VAT.

Possibly be the quietest car on sale? Has more real world useful features such as Carplay, paddle set regen, "that" 3D parking camera Audi have, HUD, battery heater and so on, not to mention the ability to get it serviced by a dealer inside 10 miles and within 48 hours.
Didn’t you hear? Tesla are going bankwupt. They can barely give the cars away.Maybe that explains your attitude. Now you feel like you are a king. But that's OK, since it doesn't really matter. I still don't need your approval for NOT buying a Tesla.
BTW, you are totally wrong about "nor does anyone particularly desire that you own one ". I am pretty sure Tesla care about the numbers they are selling, and the more they sell the better it is for EVERY Tesla owner, even you, so actually, you should care as well. Because really, what is the incentive of buying one if nobody cares, not even Tesla...? How will the company survive with such attitude? Yes, if I personally don't buy one or not, that hardly makes a difference globally, but the attitude should be the opposite, convince me that I was wrong about NOT buying a Tesla (based on facts, not your emotions). By trying to tell me nobody cares, you are actually damaging YOUR brand, not mine.
