    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Haha I see you ordered the same config. Great minds and all that! Thanks for the note on EDD changing for you. It's funny, two days ago I woke up not even considering a Tesla. Now that I ordered one I'm obsessed with it haha!

    SR/SR+ (Model 3 RWD) Waiting Room

    Placed an order yesterday for RWD, MSM, White, Aero, No FSD. Configurator showed Oct - Dec delivery, but that was already changed in my account to Dec - Feb. Real nice lol... But only the first of many changes I'm gathering after reading this forum 😂 We've had an EV6 on order for 3 months, but...

    Very high mileage LRAWD vs. New SR+ vs Other

    Appreciate everyone chiming in. Consensus seems to be look elsewhere or buy new, which is honestly the conclusion I've come to the post 24 hours as well. That being said, I'm just not sure I can justify the expense for a new Tesla after all these price increases recently. I'm sure I'll end up...

    Very high mileage LRAWD vs. New SR+ vs Other

    Thanks to all 3 of you for replying! I've definitely been looking at new EVs that still qualify for the tax credit (and have a warranty) like Ioniq 5, EV6, and aforementioned Leaf. Interesting all 3 of your comments align on considering that direction. I'll have to go test drive some and...

    Very high mileage LRAWD vs. New SR+ vs Other

    Tl;dr (or won't read, lol): Wanting opinions on buying a 2018 LRAWD with very high mileage (~100k) for about $40k vs. reserving a new SR+ vs. a different EV new or used? If the used Tesla, is there anything specific to "look for" in a very used 2018? I'm not necessarily worried about battery...

    RAV4 Plug-in Hybrid

    More expensive than I'd hoped, but still a really compelling offering. Not much reason to opt up in trim or options TBH, so you can get OTD in the mid $30's after fed credit. On par with what many midsize SUV's are selling for these days, and this thing will obviously destroy them in...

    Mach E in the wild

    Very cool and fortunate to have spied this! Thanks for uploading! I'm also not a huge fan of the styling, but eye of the beholder and all that. Top of my head: How big are these in comparison to the Y? It looks like a Kona or Niro, both of which I found puny and cramped compared to the RAV4...

    2019 Used Bolt for $25k vs. 2014 Tesla S for $30k?

    I asked a similar question on this board last summer, so you might be able to find that thread by searching. I decided against a ~$30k used MS due to lack of AP, lack of warranty, and potential repair costs. I still haven't bought anything as I'm waiting for a few things: Prices to fall on...

    Advice Wanted on EV Under $30k: Used S60, Wait for Used M3, Other?

    Thanks for this...great post. I honestly love the idea of the B250e and there's a really nice looking one for sale a few hours from me. That said, I'm a little nervous about the range -- especially in winter, and especially if the battery has degraded even a little -- and getting it serviced...

    Advice Wanted on EV Under $30k: Used S60, Wait for Used M3, Other?

    Thanks so much for this! I'm definitely leaning used Bolt at this point for many of the reasons you mentioned. I do tend to keep cars for the very long term, but in this case I could definitely see myself ditching the Bolt after 3 - 5 years to perhaps upgrade to a Tesla. Financially I just...

    Any Indy area owners of '13-'14 MS willing to let me check it out?

    Thanks to both of you for the replies! I actually stopped by the Castleton store yesterday, but the guy at the front seemed clueless on this point. He was happy to let me look inside his own MS, but he didn't allow me to get in or drive it, and he didn't suggest any others. I think he was...

    Advice Wanted on EV Under $30k: Used S60, Wait for Used M3, Other?

    Thanks for the additional posts. Great points on the possible maintenance costs on a used S (not to mention insurance costs mentioned earlier -- something I hadn't considered). I'm pretty handy and do all my own ICE maintenance now -- oil, filters, brakes, and other little things here and...

    Any Indy area owners of '13-'14 MS willing to let me check it out?

    Hi all! I'm looking at EVs under $30k and have considered a used MS. I've seen a few older and high mileage MS (mostly S60's) in that range, but they're all pretty far out of state. I've never ridden in -- let alone driven -- a Model S, so it makes it tough to pull the trigger. I see a 2013...

    Advice Wanted on EV Under $30k: Used S60, Wait for Used M3, Other?

    Thanks for continuing to post, everyone -- it's super helpful! I still need to figure out a way to test a high mileage MS -- especially an 85. There's one used 60 available at a dealer nearby, but they want me to get loan preapproval to even test it. I guess they get a lot of requests. I...

    Advice Wanted on EV Under $30k: Used S60, Wait for Used M3, Other?

    The continued replies are so appreciated and helpful! I also posted on a Bolt forum where they've been equally helpful, so it's really given me a ton to think about -- but in a good way. To respond to a couple comments above: I'm definitely considering a Bolt -- both new and used -- and...
