    Anyone with a Model 3 near Puyallup, WA want to help me out? $20 for your troubles

    I don't know if I'm going to get the 3P though.

    Anyone with a Model 3 near Puyallup, WA want to help me out? $20 for your troubles

    I've got a 2016 WRX that I have to back into my driveway because there is a dip before my driveway for directing roadway runoff. I don't mind backing my car in, but I just want to make sure things will be fine with a Model 3. I have considered upgrading my order to a P3D, but I don't want to do...

    Model 3 clearance question

    Thanks for the reply. Yah I may try and ask someone. I am perfectly fine with backing the car in, I'm just worried about the front. I don't really want to have a situation where I need to go out sideways in the correct manner every time.

    How to get an accurate insurance quote?

    Every insurance provider I've spoken with needs an actual VIN number to provide a quote for car insurance. I'm looking to buy an AWD version. Is there a way to just find a VIN for a vehicle like the one I want to order and to get a quote based on that? Any insurance providers recommended in...

    Model 3 clearance question

    Reviving this old thread now that AWD is out. Does anyone know the departure angles and how they compare to a WRX quoted above?

    Model 3 clearance question

    Now that we see Model 3's in the wild, do we have new information? I'm still interested in this question beyond just getting my Model 3 and testing if I can pull in the vehicle or if I have to back in.

    Model 3 clearance question

    Wow, great response. I guess finding out this departure angle will be something that may be possible when non-employee Model 3 owners start taking delivery. I'll have to do some research on the WRX departure angle but yes looking at the side by side it looks like I'll be fine on the back side...

    EV-CPO.com CPO Consolidator support thread

    Do we need to pay to see the hidden ones? I would. The screenshot you shared earlier Hank was for a $35,000 P85 but that still had a 4 year warranty. That's nut's. I'd buy that.

    Model 3 clearance question

    I currently own a 2015 Subaru WRX with 4.9 inches of ground clearance that I currently have to back into my driveway (there is a dip going into the driveway and then it's steep right after that) and the only way I can make it in without scraping is to back in. I know the Model 3 has 5.5 inches...

    How to justify buying CPO vs New Model S?

    I'm in a similar boat. Trying to decide between P85D CPO and a new 75D. Before the spec bump on the 75D I felt like the decision was simple if I was after the performance but now the base model 75D is just as quick as the early P85's 0-60.

    Tesla Model S CPO Website - Now Live

    Feels like there aren't that many good deals right now. After the performance bump to the base Model S75 it almost makes more sense to buy new. Anyone else leaning the same way?

    CPO P85D with or without ludicrous?

    You think buying a CPO performance vehicle is alright because it's different than a gas powered one perhaps?

    CPO P85D with or without ludicrous?

    Hmmm well now that the new 75D's are 0-60 in 4.2 seconds the gap between the low end current Tesla Model S and the ~2 years ago top of the line P85D has narrowed even further. Perhaps I'll lose a little bit of the acceleration but gain AP2 and go with a new 75D. Anyone else considering the...
