    you talked with Tesla about trade in
    find a limo (or taxi driver) - warn them not to abuse SC - fuel savings big plus, right?
    investigate uber, lyft drivers - rental Turo - selling to rental car companies dream collection
    hope this inspires

    IF I needed a car, seems a fine buy.

    Yeah, it was hard to make the choice to sell. She runs great, but I really miss the AP and AWD and frankly, being out of warranty just makes me nervous. Since the tax credit is expiring, it seemed the right time to 'upgrade'. I don't need this large of a vehicle any more and I need a bit more range.

    It is a nice deal, but the buyer should budget a few k for the eventual touchscreen replacement. Unfortunately that bubble is going to keep growing, common early S problem.

    Updated!
    I had the touch screen replaced, bubble is gone, brand new touch screen installed.
    Am going to list on Ebay and elsewhere in about a week if I can't sell within my Tesla groups and the price will be listed higher.

    Folks, I don't know efusco other than tmc - if anyone is looking for a pre-owned Model S, this is a good deal. I've watch his posts over the years and he took good care of this car

    My S was a VIN in the 2000s and it extremely reliable. These early cars are rock solid when taken care of, especially when the common "early adopter features" have been addressed. This is a great car for someone looking for an affordable Tesla.
