    For $88k would you guys buy a 2016 P90D with high miles, around 33k miles, or for $85k buy a 2017 75D with low miles, around 10k miles? I’ve heard that the 2016 models have glitches particularly with the falcon doors but not sure what else. I’ve learned to generally avoid the first year models as they are fixing the bugs. Yes the 75D isn’t as fast but I think that they tweaked the 2017 to be faster. The 2017 75D 0-60 is now 4.7 seconds.

    I would compare options
    The p models came pretty loaded
    Nicer rims, vented leather seats
    If you are worried , buy a 4 year 50k extended warentee
    I’ve seen a lot of basic 75d with cloth interior
    At supercharger

    Only thing I wish my 2016 75D had is more range. So far the doors have been fine. I vote the P90D.

    Is the 4 year 50k extended warranty on top of the 4 year 50k that they already give you?
    How much is it? Can it be purchased if not from a Tesla seller? Some of these used MX are at non Tesla dealers or private sellers.

    Tesla is only showing one used 2016 MX 90D on their website.

    Yes
    On top of original
    We have not bought yet for our 2017 100d x
    But I was told could buy from Tesla as long as original warentee still in force
    5k is cost
    Our car had been very reliable so far
    Will make decision when 3 1/2 years old whether to spend 5k more

    Does high miles an electric car matter as much as traditional cars because there’s no engine? Because there’s still the battery pack that’s used with higher miles right?

    There are 2 model x that I see at supercharger all the time
    I think both have around 400,000 on them
    Battery guaranteed 8 years unlimited miles
    My neighbors s has 120k
    2012 I think
    Still working perfectly

    Not really but other parts do wear. I think all 75D model X can be uncorked but I’m not 100% on that tesla can tell you for sure.

    I’d get the 2017, the 2016 models had a lot of fit and finish issues. The FWD also reportedly open and close much faster and smoother on the newer models

    Does the $3000 you pay for extended 4 year 50k warranty add to the 8 year battery warranty?

    So can’t you technically go to Tesla even if you buy a 2016 model and tell Tesla to fix those falcon doors so that they operate smoother and faster like the 2017 models?

    Nope. They’ll say your doors are operating as designed

    All AP2 Model S/X can be uncorked. I had one of the first ones. Has to be 75D or 60D upgraded to 75D.

    I have heard of some AP1 MX uncorked but not sure if that is universal?

    The difference in range between a P90D and 75D is less than 15 miles.

    Yes you can get all 2017 75D uncorked and they came with AP2 which you get will get ungraded to AP3 if you purchase the FSD option.

    Tesla redesigned the sensors in the FWDs from 2016 so the FWDs are less cowardly of potential obstacles when opening. The older Xes would open very slowly while new ones open fairly confidently.
