    Anyone thought about how tax credit can impact your resale value?

    Plenty discussions on buying new/used cars with the tax credit, or if they should hold their money for next year. I'm more concerning from an onwer's perspective. I know used Tesla 3/Y wouldn't go below $25000 hence won't qualify tax credit. But I believe 2023 will have huge impact on used...

    Confidence in “previously repaired”

    This showed up on the title search on a 2018 100D I’m considering buying direct from Tesla. They claim to have high standards for previous repairs but this seems major. Any thoughts? Would you go for it or leave it?

    Hi guys I want to get a Model 3 soon, but i'm having a hard time deciding between a new 2021 SR+ or a used LR. A new SR+ would cost me around 42k.

    What options does a MS have?

    If I wanted to buy a MS from a dealer or PP, how can I tell what options it has? I like the ev-cpo site as you can see all the options, but since Tesla has done away with the 4 yr warranty...it makes sense to shop around. So how do I tell if it has all the options I want online (without...
