    What MS should I buy?

    Hello all, I currently own a model 3 (2021) and have loved it for the last 2.5 years. I have had an itch to upgrade to a refreshed S for the last few months and I think it’s time.

    Should I buy through Used tesla inventory or Dealership?

    Please send me your advice regarding buying a used Tesla 3 (2020 30k miles).

    Australia Existing/Used Inventory Monitor

    Hi guys, I've recently written an Existing/Used inventory monitor, it pings when new ones pop up which I've also used to get a VIN straight away for a friend. Ordering from here instead of the normal pre order channel gives you a VIN straight away, which means either the car is on the way to...

    I am considering buying a Tesla 2014 model S 85 for 20K. It has 163k miles on it with original battery. Also hasn’t had the drive unit replaced.

    Used Model 3 Order - How long did shipping to your location take?

    Ordered a used Model 3 last week. Shipping from Lathrop to Chicago. Said 2-3 weeks for shipping. Has anyone else done this? How was your experience? I’m having trouble getting a hold of my sales rep. I’m hoping closer to 2 weeks since I think California to Chicago is basically 100% train.

    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?

    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...
