    I've just ordered a new 100D and am reluctantly selling my beloved VIN 3662.

    Dark green (with Opti-coat ceramic paint protection)

    19-inch wheels

    Black Leather Interior

    Air Suspension

    Aftermarket Evannex Center Console

    Drive Unit replaced at 73,000 miles after technician heard the infamous milling sound at a regular service.

    Battery (and software) upgraded from 60 to 85 at 11,000 miles. (Very possibly the only Model S to have done so; my gung-ho local service center did it before the factory told them they couldn't.) Battery currently retains 94 percent of capacity, with max indicated range of 250 miles.

    This car has been featured in multiple articles on the website Green Car Reports. You can follow its entire history on the site.

    One minor front-end scrape, fully repaired by authorized shop.

    Remainder of extended warranty (about 2 years, 24,000 miles) available for pro-rated cost (about $2,000)

    Car is located in Cornwall, NY, about 60 miles north of New York City. It looks and drives like new (except for 6-percent range loss.)

    Do these drive units need continual replacement? Or are they replacing them with ones that last longer?

    New and current replacement drive units have corrected past problems. No longer any pattern of repeated failures that I'm aware of.

    My original drive unit ran perfectly for 73,000 miles, but the technician didn'tl like the slight humming sound, and insisted on changing it out under the powertrain warranty. I didn't argue with him.

    Forgot to mention that the car has heated seats.
