    Hi, I am selling my 2014 Model S w/ AP1 and 43k miles. On these forums I'm asking for 39k. It's fully optioned except for cold weather package. Notably, it has:
    - sunroof/pano
    - tech/autopilot
    - Dolby surround sound (High Fidelity Sound package)
    - red brake calipers
    - premium interior package (lighting, leather)
    - black leather interior
    - 19" rims
    - air suspension
    - twin chargers (80 amps)
    - power liftgate
    - spoiler
    - performance package: 0-60 mph in 4.1s

    Vehicle timeline (i.e. why it is a rebuilt title):
    - original owner gets in accident: collision hitting back left door. If you Google Images the VIN you'll be able to see pictures of the damage, which was sufficient enough to classify the vehicle as totaled
    - insurance company acquires vehicle, sells at auction
    - previous owner buys vehicle and performs body work: title becomes rebuilt
    - I purchase from previous owner in Denver and bring it to bay area

    Lastly, on why I am selling: I end up moving to San Francisco, and it is such a hassle having a car up here that I have decided to go car-less (alas!).

    The vehicle still gets software upgrades and has supercharger access. Last time I did a 100% charge (a few months ago) the range was 262.

    VIN: 5YJSA1H14EFP55802

    Vehicle modifications:
    - third party firmware updates and app access (e.g. unlocking/summon from mobile)
    - leather floormats around seats and in trunk
    - 12V lithium ion battery instead of the lead DCS-33IT (element3batteries)

    Other things it'll come with:
    - HOV stickers
    - charger and various adapters (J1172, NEMA 14-50, NEMA 14-30, NEMA 5-15)

    Quirks of being a salvage/rebuilt:
    - no windshield wiper arms; I haven't looked hard into finding these since it doesn't rain too often in the bay area, but the vehicle has no wiper arms (I have the Bosch wiper _blades_ though)
    - rear left door: missing a cover on the speaker and window control does not work (only for the passenger -- the driver control for back left window works fine)

    On why I consider the condition to be considered "good":
    - some curb rash on the rims: hard to see these in the pictures
    - some paint scratches: also hard to see in the pictures
    - the quirks mentioned above
    - vehicle title being rebuilt

    Cheers!
    Erik

    Is the car Tesla re-certified? How would a person also continue to get updates (if not) and also the free supercharging?

    Who performed the third party updates and who is providing the app access?

    He joined back in 2016 though. Seems unlikely for a scam.

    i dont see why you guys are bashing this guys car sale thread unless you have proof that hes trying to scam someone, if you got nothing good to say then keep it to yourself. he clearly advertises it as a P85, not P85D so i dont see what the problem is.

    likely this car isnt blacklisted by tesla as many other salvage title cars arent so it still gets supercharge/updates for now, but you should do your research first if you are considering salvage title.

    I don't know any salvage that aren't, and from what I have gleaned, it is when you register the new owners title with Tesla is when they catch it as a branded title. Plus, I am not sure that I saw much bashing in this thread, more like legitimate hard questions of how this might work for someone going forward.

    Answering some of these questions:

    P85D badge:
    The additional D on the outside P85 badge is just a joke badge -- the vehicle is a P85. These badges are sold on ebay. You can also tell it's not real because the D is silver instead of red. I rather enjoy it.

    Updates/supercharging:
    Both supercharging (free of course) and updates are working/routine. One of the active members on this forum tweaked the firmware and provides the app access. I'll check to see if it's fine to share the name here but a private message is fine. I have not tried to have the vehicle re-certified, as since everything works fine as-is, I haven't had incentive to look into it.

    I second what kev1n said, that research is required for salvage titles so you know what you're getting into. Maintenance and parts can be a bit harder to get, but it's actually not too bad. Just worth knowing it's not as straightforward as going directly to the service center.

    My concern would be this: the rear driver's side airbag deployed, and how would a person know that the repair work was done properly such that in the event of a subsequent side collision there would be a proper airbag deployment? Without any kind of certainty there, I personally feel like I would be putting my kids' lives on the line to save some money.

    If an airbag is not properly plugged in, it will send warning notices all over the MCU and CID. As far as "properly installed" these things only fit one way physically, and screw or snap in. The bag would literally be bulging out if not properly installed.

    OP - was there any damage to the battery or the frame housing it near that door? Out of all the online pictures, that would be my only major concern (as a salvage owner x 2). Can you post a picture of the frame (shot from ground up) at that impact area (i.e. driver's rear door)?

    Good looking car. I'd be interested except just purchased one a few months back, so more interested to see what it ends up going for. Mine has rebuilt title as well, but somehow still has Tesla warranty. Not sure what they had to go through to get that, but it is possible. GLWS!

    Sure, here's some more pictures of that door and shot of the frame. Let me know if you'd like additional angles.
