Re: Led interior lamps flickering - shunt resistors needed?

Sounds like an issue with the R3 as the only LED`s not replaced in my 40th are the indicators which I did do and they worked OK but then I found there is no safety warning if one of the LED`s packs up like a hyperflash on the Indicator relay so I left the bulbs in. Apart from that all the interior L...

Re: PZ group buy suspension

Firstly someone needs to set up a group buy they need to compile a list of of the number of owners interested in buying a set.

You need to see if the numbers are there to make it worth while. :-k

Re: EV the future ?

This is an ideal opportunity for the UK government to save the planet and start with a clean slate: An extra tax based on the price of the EV has already started ie an increased VED on vehicles over £40k. Pay per mile charge. An extra tariff on domestic electricity supply for car charging. And anyth...

Model 3 towing capacity is 1,000kg. If you need more then get the Y which is 1,600kg.
If you are touring and towing a caravan with an EV and you are required to stop to recharge what do you do with the `van if space is limited whilst at a charging point. :-k
