    Totalled Car - Comparable value

    My car is (most likely) totalled (thanks Son ). I loved my model 3 but repair cost is just so high, most likely its going to be totalled. My Tesla 3 was purchased on Dec 2019 (2020 model) with full FSD - Standard plus capacity. We live in central part of NJ. I want to get heads start with...

    Does a Model 3 first production with low VIN (#567) increase value?

    As mentioned in the title, I am wondering if there is any increased value now or long term to Tesla fans for a model from the first 600x units produced in initial production. At the time I was a SpaceX employee and received priority for my reservation, picking up my 2017 Model 3, VIN 567, in...

    3 -> Y, need advice re Model 3/s value

    We have decided a Y would better fit our needs and I wanted to tap your collective wisdom with regard to how best to trade up. In particular, the resale value has me thinking I must be missing something significant — the Kelly Blue Book value on it hasn’t fallen much from the new price and even...

    Will My New Model 3 Be Worth The Same As A Honda Civic In 6 Years?

    I just sold my 2013 Mercedes C250 Sedan and bought a new Model 3 SR+ last week. My Mercedes was 6 years old and originally stickered at $42,935. I sold it for $10,000. This got me to thinking so I decided to compare the value of my 6 year-old Mercedes with a 6 year-old Honda Civic EX-L Sedan...

    Model X Resale Value with XPEL Wrap & Modifications

    I’m looking to get my 2018 Model X wrapped with an XPEL stealth coat. I’m also looking to get a chrome delete done, light ceramic coat on top of the wrap, and possible powder coat the wheels & paint the calipers. Quite a bit of customization and I wanted to know if anyone has done the same. If...

    Article on EV Batteries from Autoweek: FUD or Valid Points?

    When I started reading this, I thought for sure it was a ICE-apologist hit piece on EVs, and without a doubt, the author takes a dim view of EVs. However, he does bring up some interesting and valid points. I think by necessity there will need to be the option to swap out or upgrade batteries in...

    Is it possible to transfer "autopilot" from one vehicle to another?

    Two questions: 1. If I buy a model s now and pay for autopilot (AP2), and I decide to buy another one (assuming its also AP2) a few years later, can I transfer the autopilot from the first car to the second one so that the newer one has autopilot (without paying extra for it) and the older one...

    Reintroduce 'Resale Value Guarantee' for Model S again?

    Hi, with the sale and delivery of the Model 3 hopefully beginning this year, I am wondering, if it would be a welcome decision of Tesla's to reintroduce 'guaranteed resale value' again. I have been browsing around a bit and picket up that some Model S owners and prospective buyers are...

    Owning an M3 "for free?"

    For people who will get their cars the earliest, is it possible that I could buy the M3 (for say $45k), have it for a year, take the tax credits (-$10k in my state) and then sell it after a year for roughly the $35k total that I spent after the tax rebate? Since the tax credits will be much...

    How much more damage will Remarketing do to Tesla sales before they figure it out?!?

    I have to vent; please forgive the length of this rant but I can't stand it when otherwise smart people do stupid things. As TSLA stockholders and big time supporters of Tesla's goal of accelerating the transition to sustainable transport, we buy a lot of Teslas. Thus far, we've purchased five...
