I’ve got a Tesla and BYD too. So the Tesla uses Bluetooth for the key (and the key card you weren’t carrying). The BYD doesn’t have a Bluetooth key. You can open the app and unlock/start the car, but it requires the phone and car to both have internet connectivity, so should really be used as a back...

Don’t tell me you didn’t know this before you purchased the car? It’s common knowledge and a basic attribute to know prior to purchase.

The Atto 3 is what you are after.

The boot is still fairly small (no bigger than the Model 3) but the opening is larger so less awkward. The Model Y has a lot more room than both.

They should work fine. Mine does.

The Wall Connector can be configured through wifi to allow non-Teslas to charge. I suspect this setting needs to change.

I’ve got 2 car seats in mine (one rear facing) and there is plenty of room in the back seat. Definitely would be a big step up from as ASX.

I wouldn’t bother doing it monthly. I’m not sure if I’ll even bother doing it at all until the end of the lease.
