    From where do you guys buy the Winter Tyres? The shop at Tesla always shows them not available?   https://shop.tesla.com/de_de/category/fahrzeugzubehor/model-3#model-3.felgen-und-reifen

    I charged my car upto 97% today and it shows Projected range of 378 km. I thought it would offer at least 430-450 km, considering Telsa said Model 3 goes up to 484 km (Standard model)   Also changing the options below the graph, like 25km or 50km and Instant range changed the values. For e.g. Selecting 50 Km and Instant Range showed it to 425 km range.   I don't know if I completely understood this concept

    As of now I use AC and music and also go on 150+ on Autobahns. I think Tesla exec mentioned during one of our visit that ADAC members can save 2 cents per kwh. I will also check that.

    Driving new Model 3 for 5 days and thoroughly enjoying it. Have already done 460 km and it is fun to drive :-) Till now we always had SUVs so sitting position is bit low, but I hope we get used to it in some time.   I am still trying to find out best charging habits. I am dependent on public charging stations as of now and I have a SWM charger near to my apartment, where I get a place every time I go.   I already charged it 4 times so far as shown below, which has costed me 24.19€ so far. I am still not able to understand whether this is cheaper than petrol  and what are good charging habits. Watched some videos and people say that we should always charge it between 20 to 80%. As of now my Car shows 28% and I am thinking to do a full charge (90%) again when it drops to 15% say.   Any tips or link to sources for better charging habits. On Thursday we are planning for a long trip to Prague, so I will charge it 100% before leaving and will charge on the way at a Supercharge if required.

      Just for information, in case anyone wants to register a new car in Munich, I did registration today. It was not too complicated. I was able to do everything in 1hour. Registration for model-3 cost me 46,40€ and Number Plates 42€, little expensive I guess than what I paid few years ago, but I just went to the first shop at the corner   There is an underground car park at Eichstätter Str. 2, which is also free for an hour.

    I used GLS group 5-6 years ago sending household stuff from Leeds to Munich. They were very good with price and service.   https://www.gls-pakete.de/privat-versenden     In case you want to sell the DHH, please let me know

    Wow..cool..thanks Mike for the important tips. I will call these guys and check if the can still do the registration tomorrow as I have to pick the car on 19th   Dont want to waste whole day tomorrow as day after also I cant work half a day because of the delivery of new car

    Thanks @MikeMelga and @CincyInDE for the inputs. Yes its surprising that Tesla doesn't do the registrations. I have carried forward my old number and will add E to it. I have taken an appointment at registrations office tomorrow. Hope It would be fairly simple if I carry all the documents.   Tesla guys said that they will deliver the car around 40-50% charged. So the first thing I might have to do after coming back to Munich is trying to charge it at a SWM charger near my home.   Does anyone miss the heads-up display in Model-3? In normal cars, we have a speedometer and maps right under the steering wheel. In model-3 we might have to look at the right a bit. How is the experience with existing users?

    Finally, I am getting my model 3 delivered on Thursday. Looking forward to it :-)   Just have to sort our registration and insurance before it. Can I charge it at say at SWM charging stations on street using some App or do I need to order some physical cards or something from SWM?

    No-one has put gun on your head, to answer

    @MikeMelga Did you buy any accessories (All weather rubber floor mats and mats for trunk and Frunk) from Tesla or are there better options elsewhere?   In a lot of youtube videos especially from US, I see people buying from Amazon or some other online vendors, but amazon.de doesn't have many options.  
  12. Tesla Gigafactories, News and Conversation

    What is the best way to charge Tesla via public charging network in Munich.   I see so many apps for searching the chargers and each charger price depends on the card we use. Ranges between 7 cent up to 1.2 euro depending on which card is used   Also, Tesla guys told me that if I have an ADAC membership, I can get a few cents discount on charging. I have SWM chargers near my home, so most probably have to use them initially.   https://www.elvah.de/plans/ladepakete   https://www.adac.de/services/e-angebote/adac-e-charge/   https://swm.emobilitycloud.com/de/register

    Does anyone know, whether Tesla models we get here in Germany, are they made in China or the USA?   For e.g. While buying BMW, Audi, Mercedez etc. I see it mentioned specifically that particular car is German Model and not made in other easter European country.    
  14. Tesla Gigafactories, News and Conversation

    Did they say why? So are you also totally dependent on Public charging? Is it feasible? Do you get a chance to fully charge your car during the week? I have one around 900m from my house. I am not sure if prices differ significantly among public chargers
  15. Tesla Gigafactories, News and Conversation

    I took full 1 hour test ride for model3 and It was impressive, especially the pickup and thrust part :-)   I hope I don't have too much issues using public charging after I get it. The Tesla people told me that it is possible even to install a charging box in a shared parking. I am not sure how it will work in my situation as we have two multi family houses next to each other. My underground car park is in other house adjacent to ours. If I manage to install charging box there, how will they calculate the tariff and how will I pay? THere was some information about some new law on charging boxes.   I have shared it with my landlord.   https://www.adac.de/rund-ums-fahrzeug/elektromobilitaet/laden/lademoeglichkeiten-mehrfamilienhaeusern/
