    End of quarter purchase

    What is the best time to try to take advantage of incentives? The very last day of the quarter (i.e. March 31st)? Or sometime towards the end of the month? Ready to order a new Model 3, timing not critical for me.

    Purchasing used M3

    I’m pulling the plug and purchasing a Model 3! Before I do so, how does the current owner check the range of the car? Is the only way to charge to 100%? Once I purchase and remove their phone from the list of keys, would they still be able to track the location of the car? Any way to...

    Hello all. I finally placed an order on a Model X that is to ship from Baltimore to Chicago using Tesla's transport option. It's been 17 days so far though and zero updates from Tesla. I've bothered the Sales Advisor and the Inside Delivery Advisor more than a dozen times through email and...

    Is Tesla truly 'Different' or are the dealerships scam artists like the other car dealerships?

    Walked into Buena Park dealership 2 weeks ago. 2 days later ordered online. My Model 3 is now ready- 6pm appt set. Got emails from 2 different Tesla employees with equally confusing titles (Inside Delivery Manager and Energy Manager (what's an 'Energy Manager??') trying to rush the delivery-...

    I am about to place an order for a new Model 3. I have a few questions: 1. Do they still have a referral system? Is it worth getting a referral code from someone? Do I get something? Does the referring person get something? 2. They now require a $2500 deposit. I was told on the phone that...

    SoCal - Potential CPO Buyers

    I have established a good relationship with a CPO Sales Advisor in the Southern California area. I found my CPO experience to be great, and much faster than the horror stories that are on here. It took 1 week from deposit to delivery for my 2015 MS60. If you are in the market for one, and are...

    My 2013 P85 Journey, Delivery, and Roadtrip Impressions

    The dream has happened. After quite a journey, I now own a beautiful Model S. I had been watching the market relentlessly, with HUGE help of EV-CPO of course.

    Is Model X Purchase Price Negotiable?

    Hi folks, I'm about to place an order on the new Model X. With all the options on on-road costs added up it slightly exceeds my comfort level of spend on the car.

    UK Purchase via PCP Finance

    Hi all, I have put an order in for a Model S and applied for PCP finance. The question I have is, can I pay the finance "downpayment" via credit card? I have some lovely 0% CCs and doing it this way would reduce the interest rate being paid for the credit (although speed up the repayments as I...

    Trading in existing Cars

    As Tesla Motors don't take trade-ins, what are people doing with existing cars that they/I would normally trade-in as part of the sale ?
