    Hi I got an offer from a a friend that is selling his Model S P85+. He said that the trade in value is 35K so he said that I can buy it for that price. So I was wondering if that is worth it? It seem like that mileage determined the price of the car so I can find a 2015 with higher miles for the same price. What would you do?

    Tough question- if you value performance over range and tech- go for it. However, for $35k you could probably find a 2014 or newer S 85 with autopilot( yes higher miles, but likely still under 50k miles). I love autopilot and I love the performance models. I scored a higher mileage P85DL for $38k in May. It was a great deal that I could not pass up. Sitting at 86K miles right now and love the car.

    That's a great price in my opinion. The P85+ has all of the performance options available for that year. It's a bit of a unique car that came with upgraded suspension, beefier brakes, and staggered wheels. If you are looking for a more standard optioned car, then yes, you can find one cheaper.

    I just bought my 2013 p85+ for cheaper than 35k but I have 99k miles.
    Extremely happy with it. I’d do it all over again and pay more $$.

    M3 and MX are great as well but serve their own different purposes.

    The coveted + suspension handles amazing but it’s not for everyone. I suggest trying a non + first and compare driving experiences. If you value performance and ‘hug the road’ over bumpiness and road comfort...then + is worth every cent :)

    Don't forget to factor in the loss of the warranty when you buy from PP versus Tesla, plus the power train warranty will be gone in a year or so...

    Omg I hate you! Just kidding. I tried to buy your P85D in may at the same time. You beat me by a few minutes. I ended up with a 2014 P85+ ($39k) no AP but who cares, giant frunk and I can drift if I turn off traction control. Love my classic unicorn P85+

    I bought a 2013 P85+ with 56,000 miles for $40K and I love it. The handling and power are perfect.

    The brakes were the same as other models.

    power train is 8 years after it was DELIVERED. Mine was delivered 11/2014. So I have until 11/2022. Definitely keep that in mind when buying. Battery degradation and noises from the motor will definitely be fixed by Tesla within the warranty period.

    Great price. I love autopilot so I would pass but value-wise that’s an excellent deal.

    Drive unit if you are under warranty is an easy ask. Just go to Service Center and demonstrate the noise: agree you are SOL about battery degradation.

    You're SOL about battery failure too, there 's a huge thread about Tesla downgrading 85kwh packs to ~59kwh usable so they won't have to support the warranty. I think Tesla only honors the battery warranty if it catastrophically fails now, anything short of total failure is "you're fine, just part of a test group with lowered stats thats all"

    Unfortunate to hear about the battery degradation. Any idea what a battery would cost to replace? 85kw?
    I feel like I’ve read posts on here about Tesla upgrading batteries for some owners.

    If it makes you feel any better, I had to replace the IC and a battery warmer. The IC was done by me for $250, but Tesla has to do the battery warmer at about $850. Still a great deal. 4C574A83-7979-4071-822E-A23B410C1FE5.jpeg 4C574A83-7979-4071-822E-A23B410C1FE5.jpeg
