    Best Year/Model to Buy Used Model S

    Ah I guess I was looking at P85 single motors for that price and year range, my bad

    Curious why you say stretch the budget on a nose-cone p85d. I feel like I’ve seen plenty of these 2013-14 for at or under $30k, am I missing something though?

    Best Year/Model to Buy Used Model S

    Why is it that an 85 is so much cheaper than a 75? I'm seeing so many sub $30k 2015 85's and then can't find a 75 for anywhere under 35k. Is the post face lift really that much better? Also just curious why you say a 75D would be better. I appreciate all the feedback and info, this is really...

    Best Year/Model to Buy Used Model S

    Ha, the day I upgrade from a BMW M3 to a Chevy Bolt is the day you can take my drivers license away. Luckily I'm already used to the $250ish range for insurance on the BMW, so no big changes there. I've seen a few 75's pop up here for sale at the $30k mark, as well as many more 85's. Is the...

    Explain all the Gates

    I probably should have started on page one of that instead of trying to go halfway through ;) Thank you for this

    Having a 75, what's your max distance and charge time at a supercharger? Curious if yours has been capped at a certain percentage SoC, or kW max at a supercharger.

    Care to explain?

    Is there any certainty on whether the 75D has the same issues with chargegate/battery gate that seems to be on the 85's? This seems to be art rather than science as well, but hoping to really narrow down my search parameters based on hopefully avoiding these issues.

    Have you experienced charging speeds being slowed or battery caps?

    Explain all the Gates

    Alright so I’ve been seeing some extremely long threads on battery gate, charge gate, etc gate. My goal is for someone to explain in one post exactly what is going on. As a prospective MS buyer, specifically in the 2013-2016 range I want to know what I’m getting into. What years / battery...

    Why can some s75’s be uncorked and others can’t? I found a pre-owned one through Tesla and the sales person said it could not be uncorked, yet it was a 2016 S75 RWD. It was my impression that any 16-17’ could be uncorked regardless of dual motor or single?

    To confirm on chargegate, was that only affecting cars with FUSC or was this across all models/years? As I dive more into the forums I’m coming across things like this, and would rather pay to charge at the full speed than be throttled down and get it for free.

    WTB: 2014+ Model S

    Looking for a Model S to buy, sub 100k miles. Looking for Hi-Fidelity Sound, 4G LTE, Power liftgate. MCU2 upgrade already done would be nice, but not necessary. Priced around $30k, let me know!

    I appreciate you actually reading my post in terms of price range lol, obviously a 100d with FSD is nice but not anywhere near $30k. Any main issues you know of that were resolved around 2017? Again trying to nail down if a 14 vs 15 vs 16 vs 17 model year is the best purchase.

    My bad, I realize now that M3 is model 3 on here. I'm coming from a BMW M3. I'm not concerned with reliability in terms of I know Tesla's will be expensive for any repairs just like a BMW, and I know Tesla's are known to have lots of random issues. My goal is just to see if there is a sweet spot...
