Selling a wrecked Tesla Model 3 LR AWD with 67k miles. After the accident, I put a new bumper on and drove it for a month with no issues. No airbags deployed and Autopilot and FSD still function as they should. Battery was not damaged and charges as it should. Has new 18" wheels and tires with...
I am looking to purchase a rebuilt 2018 model S 75D. Car has ~30k miles on it and was recently repaired/rebuilt. There are no lights/faults indicated on the car and seems to be driving as it should and looks immaculate. The seller told me the car received suspension damage and...
I purchased a 2021 model 3 with front damage. I replaced the Pyro fuse, SRS computer, seat belts and airbags. The radiator and shroud and many other parts. Last weekend I had everything working. How ever it stopped work soon after a software update try to install. It said it was unable to...
Hi all, I have a salvage Tesla Mode 3 Performance we’re hoping to get back on the road safely.
Curtain airbags have deployed, various body damage inc. the wing mirror.
We’re currently having an issue with physically moving the car in tow mode. I’m pretty sure the pyrofuse has blown, but...
Hi guys, just drawing your attention to this tweet from @wk057
"Tesla really doesn't want people with salvage cars using superchargers. Aside from legal threats in their docs, they're blocking it in more ways now.
Seems even offline cars on semi-modern firmware can now have it perm disabled...
I currently own a 2015 P85D covered under the factory CPO warranty. So far that has been a very useful asset due to several minor issues (door handles, tie-rod, trunk latch, MCU, etc). However, a friend has a 2012 P85 that was just totaled by insurance due to a minor rear-end collision. No...
So we know there were roughly 1500 sold in the U.S. and another 900 or so worldwide for a total of roughly 2400, plus or minus.
But how many of them have been destroyed in accidents or otherwise? Medlock and Gruber keep buying wrecked ones for the parts and Tesla buys them for trade-ins and...
We get a lot of inquiries on how to fix a Tesla without having to go to Tesla. We also have a lot of people trying to DIY a salvage vehicle without training or previous experience working on a Tesla. We have partnered with The Electrified Garage and Rich Rebuilds to bring a DIY Youtube Channel...

I've been looking for a used Model 3, and I have no plans to purchase a salvage car, but I am genuinely curious about this one:
Rebuilt 2018 Tesla Model 3 Long Range w/ Autopilot
I have read several of the salvage threads on TMC, but didn't find the answer to a couple of questions.
I acquired a salvage model 3 that unfortunately seems to have some electrical/battery problems. It's indicating that it's unable to charge to 100% and BMS_a064_SW_SOC_IMBALANCE. It's also in reduced power mode.
Any ideas on how and where i can get that repaired (I clearly can't do it)...
could be also declared cat N/D.
or maybe even cat S/C if not disabled by Tesla.
also, if you know of mechanic around London UK area, willing to do rebuild for ca$h, please let me know.
(already checking eBay, Auto Trader, Copart, Gumtree.)
I hope y'all can lend your expertise.
I am looking to buy this salvage Tesla model 3: https://www.copart.com/lot/43338679
I understand that initially the updates may not work, but that can be fixed. Also that I cannot get supercharging, which I don't need. Finally, I understand that...
Here is a picture I found of a model 3 long range AWD for auction. The car looks to be in perfect condition, except a possible dent near the bottom of the driver side door. I am trying to figure out what the screen says. To me, It looks like some kind of an error screen, but I am unable to read...
Hi all first post as this is the first Tesla I’ve bought.
Just bought a P90D Model S last week and have started stripping it down when it arrived home yesterday (4/7/19).

Just over a year ago I bought a salvage Model S in Australia. Just over 3,300km (2000miles), 6 months old, right rear damage. It really didn't look much to fix so I decided to repair it and run it here in New Zealand rather than part it out. I then entered a World of Pain. I wish...
