Hi TMC,

I'm selling my Model S 85. It includes a number of extras, so is not a good fit for someone looking for the bare minimum. If, on the other hand, you are looking for a well-appointed Model S, this could be what you're looking for.

I can show the car to serious buyers in Palo Alto or downtown Redwood City.

Thanks!

Paul

How I priced the car:

* Used the following inventory vehicles as comps:

Tesla
- 2014 S85, 49K mi., no AP, 21" turbines, pano, tech, UHFS, 4-yr warranty
- +UHFS, -higher mileage, -extras (see below)
- $53K - $1.5K UHFS + $4K mileage + $16.65K extras = $72.15K

Tesla
- 2015 S85, 40K mi., AP1, 21" turbins, pano, tech, air susp, 4-yr warranty
- +1 MY, +AP1, +air susp, -higher mileage, -extras
- $54.6K - $2K MY - $3K AP1 - $1.5K air susp + $16.65K extras = $64.75K

Tesla
- 2014 P85+
- +Performance, +UHFS, -extras
- $64.2K - $10K Performance - $1.5K UHFS + $16.65K extras = $69.35K


* However, I expect not everyone will care for all of the extras, so I split the extras into 2 groups:

- What most people would care for:
- XPEL: $4,750 ($3,000)
- Extended warranty: $4,000 ($3,000)
- Maintenance plan: $2,400 ($1,800)
- Rear-facing seats: $2,500 ($2,000)
- Center console: $1,250 ($1,000)
- Mobileye: $1,200 ($600)
- Blackvue: $750 ($400)
- LTE: $500 ($400)
- All-weather mats: $385 ($300)
- Parcel shelf: $250 ($200)
- Tire repair kit: $80 ($50)
- Subtotal: $12,750
- So I'm including the following for free:
- Arachnids: $6,000 ($1,500 over 21" turbines)
- Twin chargers: $1,500 ($750)
- Carbon fiber spoiler: $1,500 ($500)
- Ecohitch: $700 ($400)
- Tint: $600 ($300)
- CHAdeMO: $450 ($350)
- Front trunk bag: $125 ($100)
- Subtotal: $3,900
- Resulting in adj. comps of $68.25K, $60.85K, and $65.45K. Average = $64.85K.

* Asking price: $59K

Tesla would offer low 30s without autopilot. Values have been nosediving in the last few months. Problem is that most folks don't care about the extra stuff. GLWS

Haha. Ok, I’ll take the bait. They offered $38.7K. They couldn’t price the extras but offered a prorated refund on the extended warranty and prepaid maintenance plans.

I'm thinking of requesting a prorated cash refund of the extended maintenance plan, but keeping the extended warranty on the car. What do you think? Or do you think most people don't care for the extended warranty either?

If I remove the extended maintenance plan, I think I'll get back around $1800 or maybe a little more if they prorate partial year.

If I remove the extended warranty, I think I'll get back around $3000-3250, again, depending on how they prorate.
