    Brief Introduction Short Story: Hi all. My name is Jackson, and I share the same enthusiasm as all of you with my Tesla. I'm also a shareholder, and my daughter shares the same birthday as Elon! I was hunting for a newer S with the fascia refresh, and after 5 long months of searching; this 1/2 unicorn was returned in my search results. It almost seemed like it was fate because it was located in Marietta, GA (less than 5 miles from the Tesla Service Center and less than 15 miles from my location). However, 3 items tempered my excitement; high mileage @ 78k, no AP (deducted 1/2 from full unicorn status) and no warranty (except for the battery and DU). Even though, the 3 items were large obstacles, I still wanted to test drive the S. When I arrived at the shop that was selling the S on consignment, I couldn't wipe the disbelief off my face. The S looked brand new with the exterior and interior, and the test drive was even better. I was given the keys to spend some time alone with the S, and the S performed as well (if not better) than the overnight Tesla demo that I just drove 2 weeks ago. From there, the decision making process went on full force. The wifey supported that I place a non-refundable deposit to reserve the S for 5 days. Thus, the start of my deep dive of research to even entertain a high mileage vehicle with no ESA (was the gamble worthwhile?) which consisted of a Tesla PPI, being very inquisitive with the service history, consuming information from this forum and other sites. Given the stellar history and ownership history, I figured if the price was right, then it could be a low percentage gamble. The price was right. Then, I started the journey of some healthy OCD to ensure that the low percentage gamble stayed low; driver's side door is presented only to minimize wear on the precious delicate handles, I turned off the folding of the side mirrors to minimize wear. Most of the settings are turned off (except for Range Mode and Cabin Overheat, these both are turned on to ensure the longevity of the HVAC unit and the MCU; I don't want to see any bubbles which could be associated with temperature tolerance), I haven't even used the sunroof yet. No frunk crease (the frunk was used 3x, but closed properly with the 2 hand method per the manual). The trunk is included in all of this gentle love. The wife humors me by turning off the climate control when we exit the vehicle; along with the tint, we use the heatshields for the front windshield and panoramic sunroof to minimize the thermal load. I am happy to say, the S is responding beautifully to the gentle love. I am sure it could tolerate more, but I choose to treat it well, so that in turn the S will treat me well. The S is a perfect wolf in sheep's clothing. Mild mannered and super quiet when driven gently, but there are times when the S asks to be driven; especially hugging those curves with the + suspension! Exhilarating! The ride, the acceleration and the handling are better than any sports car I have owned so far. I reluctantly list my S for sale because my family is expanding, and I would like someone else to enjoy this mini unicorn. I am hunting for a similar gem with the X, so the transition won't be as difficult as I watch someone else drive off and enjoy my first Tesla.
