Are there options or extended warranties that you forgot to include that justify the price?

I couldn't imagine the Brand New sticker price was much more than your asking price factoring in the $7,500 ev rebate. You can order a brand new 2016 with zero miles and options listed (and next gen seats with no body damage) for $76,500 factoring the rebate, not to mention what CPO models are going for.

The cash price for the 2016 model of mine w/o any updates starts at $85,000, prior to taxes and fees which run about $7,000, and then additions, + the additions. It would be around $100,000 new.

The options listed are the ones I have, the warranty is the one tesla issues with the car. I have emailed the rep, but I believe it is the 5 years/50,000 mile warranty.

I just priced an s85, new, with pano and grey next-gen seats for 85,200 before rebate. Factoring in the rebate you are asking more​ than that for a used car with damage.

Good luck.

Again, that completely leaves out the taxes which obviously need to be included, as well as leaving of the destination and regulatory documentation fee of $1,170 that tesla charges. the tax is $6,805 an the government tax is $638 on the new vehicle. That would leave the new vehicle at $85,200+$1,170+$6,805+$638 = $93,813. With the higher cost, taxes will be higher and it will be a little over $94,000. With that, you guys are arriving at $94,000 - $7500 = $86,500 with no miles and new. This is in addition to waiting for a two month window or whatever it currently is to get the car, which is also a time value cost that people take in to account when buying it.

I think my price is pretty fair, I also have listed for best offer also and am willing to listen to any counters or offers.

Doesn't someone who buys this private party still owe sales tax when they go to register? Sales tax is a sunk cost. But it is your car and you have the right to price it for whatever you want. Good luck.

Yes there is sales tax on used private party vehicles. Many people list lower purchase prices to save on taxes. Many states/counties have made their own minimum values mandatory to circumvent this even on 40 yr old motorcycles/enduros worth a few hundred at best.

If I were you I'd get the bumper fixed
You say it'll only cost 150, might as well do it and not deal with people bringing it up

Either way the price is way too high, but good luck either way

And of course not everyone faces the same tax rates, buyers on the forum are from all over the country. If I were to buy the car my sales tax would be a big fat $0.

Taxes for me would amount to almost $6000...but at least in Colorado I'd be able to take the $6000 alternative vehicle tax credit to balance things out.

You are right on. This is a 2014 Model, with just a few upgrades, which could be very desirable to some. I have a friend on Miami Beach that is interested in getting a TESLA, but I would have to advise him that this car is probably worth in the low $60sk range based solely on the fact that it is 2 model years old and New cost around $75k net of rebates. Based on the low miles it could be worth $63k but really not much more. That's what happens when you buy an expensive car drive it for 18 months and then try to get rid of it, you lose a lot of $$$.

Thank you and all the others for the advice Mnlevin. I am in no rush to sell the car, and am currently fielding offers, he is welcome to make one. Cheers.
