    Yes, aero wheels on the long range performance. I won't be doing track days or such like and don't need the bigger brakes and other 'performance pack' stuff.

    I'm getting old and don't fancy the harsher ride on the lowered springs and bigger wheels.

    It's more of a sleeper too ;)

    I'm unsure, I don't mind the covers but they only really make a difference for long journeys.

    I'm happy that Tesla reverted back to this option though (I'm sure the Performance was originally sold like this, with the pack on top) because you get the maximum range when you want it and maximum performance too.

    How are you financing? I've had a business contract hire quotes, 4 years, 12000 miles, £615 per month + VAT and 6 payments upfront.

    That's in red. I believe grey was £594 + VAT

    I'm still waiting for Drive Electric to confirm business prices. Thanks Tesla for messing about with the figures!

    I don't really need it that long as the Model Y would better suit my needs (mainly because of the boot) but hey, I'm going electric and Tesla are so far ahead of the game they are really the only choice.

    Primary idea:
    £25k @ 3.5% for 7 years from Tesco Bank
    £10k @ 3% for 5 years from Nationwide

    Back-up:
    Octopus EV are doing PCH for SR+ 15k miles, 3 years, blue paint at £474 per month inc VAT with £4.3k deposit.

    Those are pretty good figures tbh! I'm sure I read somewhere that with Tesla changing the prices and the GFV changing, this was delaying PCH?

    Just had Drive Electric quote, BCH performance in red, 4 years and 12,000 miles = £550 ppm

    Tesla aren't doing PCP due to VAT issues. The PCH quote though is pretty decent! Would save me around £500 over three years of ownership and saves me from any significant devaluation in the car. However, if I need to sell it after two years or want to keep it for longer, I'm screwed. Also can't add FSD to the car if I lease. Decisions decisions...

    There is always the option to ask for an extension for another year in the PCH and possible option to buy end of final year depends on who the Funder is though

    Would love to see it properly finished, seems rushed but would love to see a follow up with it all buttoned up.

    OctopusEV Performance Model 3

    2 year Personal Contract Hire 8k miles

    Initial payment: £3,140.04 including VAT

    23 monthly payments: £523.34 including VAT

    Total : £15,176.86


    2 year Personal Contract Hire 10k miles

    Initial payment: £3,317.82 including VAT

    23 monthly payments: £552.97 including VAT

    Total : £16,036.13‬


    Difference over term 24 mths , 5k pa vs 10k pa : £2,298.13

    The P111D value is £54,840.00

    Cost: 12,718.31/54,840.00 = 23.19 %

    edit ,,, excess mileage at 5k pa over 10k is 4.44 for the next 10k miles , so it actually cheaper to take a 5k pa initial and pay the extra !


    Less than 25% is considered as beating depreciation , but who really know's what value Model 3 will actually be really be after 2 years.

    Crikey that's tempting. I honestly don't see how the incumbent are going to survive this, why the hell would you even think twice about it when you're comparing the M3P vs M3 / C63 / QF etc. Not even close is it.

    Anyone got a Model S p90d?

    Rattling behind left side dash, sounds too loud to be drop links or suspension related as the sound deadening in these things is great.

    What's behind the dash that can rattle in a metallic type fashion?

    Tesla want crazy money to even look.

    This is my issue. With a loan at similar payment monthlies and deposit, I would still have 51% loan to RRP left to pay after three years. I'm not sure the car will have only depreciated by 49% after three years. The flip side of using a lease is no flexibility and no possibility to upgrade to FSD after a year if I want as it would make it a lot more expensive.

    Agreed. I went for blue with aeros in the end. I saw a grey MS and thought it looked dull as, but all of the photos for the M3 in grey look amazing. Would have gone for red but it's too expensive and very difficult to paint match.
