    You can’t net the trade against the new and only pay sales tax on the net in CA? Wow, didn’t know that. What a scam CA government is running.

    OP is not an idiot. In California, there is no sales tax benefit in trade-ins.

    Exactly my point. If the Sales tax on net applied in CA, the OP would be an idiot if they sold it to someone here, 3rd party, at the Tesla trade-in value (due to Sales tax reduction benefit). Since the OP is in CA and there isn't a sales tax benefit, they may want to sell it to someone here at or above Tesla trade in value. If it were me and the chose was Tesla or 3rd party, for the same amount, just dumping it at the SC without the 3rd party hassle, would be the way to go.

    Please find the same or equivalent car at that price anywhere, and we can talk.

    Everyone seems to have their own used car pricing algorithm here. I’ve seen one where it was $1.5 per mile driven or something like that plus some percentage for overall deprecation. That way the car should be $0 after ~50K miles

    The so called “deals” referenced mostly cannot be replicated unless the next fire sale happens and often differ or are missing options that are in the actual car for sale. For people who got the tax credit, that’s great, for those that missed it, tough luck. Funny thing is people actually reasonably expect you to offer the same amount as a credit on a used car.

    You should try to see how much you can get from Vroom or Carvana. I sold my 2016.5 S75 on Vroom for a very reasonable offer.

    Any of these still available? BTW, don't forget the $1,200 delivery fee.

    Purely out of curiosity, why are you selling it so quickly after buying it? Hoping for a flip profit or is there something you don't like about the car? From what I've seen, selling a car within the first year usually isn't a great idea (financially).

    Also, if it's not a secret, what was Tesla's trade-in offer?

    I paid about the same for my 90D as you did for your 100D. KBB and Tesla both say it's now worth $37,500. It was hard news for me as I couldn't afford my new Raven at that price, but no one seems willing to pay me even $50K. I'd guess you might get closer to $45K or $50K. I have decided to drive mine, as it still runs quiet, quick and smooth, with the interior still looking new. I live in the bay area, but we like to run around (in Phoenix now).

    These cars are electric, so "mileage" means very little. There are no pistons, valves, rings, plugs, transmission gears to wear out, (well, 10 moving parts vs. 1000 moving parts), and it's those parts that shorten the life of a gas car. The electric car has a battery, and Tesla's battery has been warranted for 8 years, and will probably go twice that, so a car with 10,000 or 100,000 miles on it may only show windshield wiper wear.

    so what's Tesla's trade in? Also can you post page 2 of the purchase agreement that shows final price paid?

    I don't see how this is relevant information. Either you come to a price that makes not parties happy or you don't.

    Trade in offer as of 8/30: $72.8K.

    I am still thinking whether to trade up. New Raven LR will cost $90.7 K out-the-door. That's for AP, and I have EAP. The numbers don't make financial sense, but at these prices, nothing is based on logic.

    I agree with that. People here seem to think that I have to accept a certain financial hit when I sell. Instead one should think whether the price is good on its own. How much I paid is irrelevant.
