    I'd say the only option is repair by Tesla Motors. So that would also mean that the repair estimate comes directly from TM. Any other options?

    The spare parts are probably worth a bit.

    This car will also always for the rest of it's life have a "salvaged title" and will never be worth the value of one that has not been wrecked. I don't see that it has any value, except for parts. It would be tough to pay 10K+ for a parted car on the hopes that you might sell pieces of it later. I don't believe a salvage yard would pay 10K for it.

    There's easily $10K worth of interior parts - carbon fiber sills, dash, center console, plus the Nav unit, seats, etc.

    Someone who's looking to build their own EV would snap this sucker up just for the batteries, PEM, and drivetrain, then sell the interior parts.

    I notice it's already been sold. Someone must have collected it for the parts.

    OK, but the original listing here still seems active for a few more days.

    But on the listing itself, it says, "This vehicle has already been sold."

    I'd keep replying, but it's clear I'm confusing the matter :).
