    Unverified Ownership My Model 3 LR AWD

    Model 3 got some really nice updates https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a34396306/tesla-model-3-design-updates/ SR+ will not get these before Q1/2021 deliveries, so my options were either get the old model (with 2000 € discount), wait until February/March for the updated version, or change the...

    Thank you! S was already one, but thanks ;) Should be on the boat of Q4 deliveries. Cannot blame you for that. Thank you!

    Unverified Ownership My Model 3 LR AWD

    Just a few months ago I got annoyed with my Model S door handle problems, and traded it to a Audi Q7. Audi is an excellent car. The best car all-round I've ever had, on paper. But I just have not grown to enjoy it. And then government published some quite intriguing incentives for people who...

    Ownership Verified: Summer car of 2020, Toyota Soarer 2005

    4000 km with zero issues, as expected from a Toyota. Full service performed, cam belt, spark plugs, all fluids. I am even thinking about getting winter tires and enjoying throughout the winter. Of course that would mean dipping it into rust prevetion bucket. Finally tax authorities decided how...

    Ownership Verified: My overgrown VAG (Q7)

    I got a bit annoyed with the small hickups with Tesla, and as everyone who has followed my car history knows, things do escalate quite quickly at that point. I had set up my mind so that having a bit more seats than five would be comfy. Life with Tesla was roomwise pretty much as good as it gets...

    I did not steal the images from the other house in the world that has a Soarer and a Scorpio. Went for a 60 km test drive yesterday evening, temperatures dropped quite hard from the 25-30°C we've had lately. Had to adjust the heater accordingly. This was doable at 50 km/h and a t-shirt. Range...

    Yeah I will do that, as the frogeye picture is not specific enough.

    Surprise, there was nothing wrong in the car, as it is a Toyota. The reason is in my mirror. There are actually two positive cables, one of which managed to hide from me. Connected it to the battery, and world is good again. Gave her a quick wash, so a picdump:

    I drove the car for about an hour with no problems, got home, turned the car off, and it went dead. Battery quickly dropped down to 6 volts and would not get any charge. No problem, this was expected. I bought a new battery, plugged it in, but nothing. It is like there is no battery at all...

    The light pattern seems to be quite flat, so registering with zero changes should be doable...

    Finally here! Battery seems to be quite shot, but otherwise simply excellent! I so love the color.

    Someone Else's Problem: Extension cords needed - 2015 Model S

    And sold. EV part was excellent and totally ready for daily use in every situation I came across. It was the the door handles with a dealership way too far away that got me back to a diesel. Once Model Y comes, I will probably be very tempted to get one...

    A Toyota Soarer arrived today! The big one just left the east coast of US, so schedule is a bit delayed.

    Now I got the export certificate, which shows mileage on the two previous inspections. The car has done 1300 km since September 2016. 72600 km then, 25 months later 73400 km, and now just under 74. A bit worryingly low accumulation, I don't think it is good for the car. But anyhow, a complete...
