2014 MS P85D

Just picked up my CPO car. Great experience, car is in immaculate condition including the wheels and came with newer Michelin tires on the 21 inch wheels.

Paid $70k for her. All options with nextgen front and back but sub zero. 39k Miles.

My 90pct is only 213 Miles. Seems low to me or is that normal? I’m at day two and already wanting to upgrade to the newer 100D solely for range.

Thanks all.

Congrats! Glad the car is immaculate! My 90% is 217 (35k Miles) so a tad lower, but not too bad. I always thought mine was low as well. Def not something that would cause me to think about a 100D though. Especially not for the price delta. Go drive in Insane for a while...

ps have you checked the front suspension to see if you have a unicorn P85D+?
 
Range is becoming a non issue with the proliferation of superchargers everywhere.

A newish 100d is going to depreciate much more in the next 3 years than a P85D so paying extra for that range won't be worth it.

The P85D will have a fee cool things like AP1 that most seem to prefer, as well as the next Gen seats which again most prefer.

Stick with what you've got, it's a great car. Range is overrated. Unless you live in Montana. Or the dakotas . Or Prairie Canada.

Thanks all.

My 90pct is 213 miles which means my 100pct is 236 which seems like a huge loss no?
That unfortunately is the downside to pre-owned. Not knowing the charging habits of the previous owner. Looks like yours was charged to 100% quite a bit. More than mine (241 miles max for me) and @nybw51mr42 (246 miles max). Just a diff of a few miles, but I feel your pain.
 
I have an appointment Monday at the SC to look into a high pitched whining noise on acceleration and deceleration. Sounds like my car in 1998 with a bad ground on my stereo system amp and sub. lol. Will ask about the battery as well.

Is that not standard? I personally love that sound. Though it's probably something different if it's that bad / annoying.
