Planning to buy Tesla model S from Tesla site: My options are
1. 2018 75D after March ( to get MCU 2): above $60-65K
2. 2017 75 D or 2018 75D before March: $50-60K
3. Pay the extra 20k, and get 2020 long range ( I just don’t like the tempest wheels)

also wife wants me to buy a used

If you're looking at 2017/2018s you're going to want a new car after doing all the math, taking into consideration the kind of warranty you get, etc.

If you want used, it's just a personal suggestion from me that you'd wanna go back farther than that - that is, if you just want a badass electric car but don't care about the suuuuper extra bells and whistles. 'Cause it's still got bells and whistles, for sure.

In late 2018 I purchased a 2015 with AP1 for a good deal that I'm still running into the ground. At that time, free charging and free data were still a thing so I'm grandfathered in. If not for those, trading up would be my next move and the new pricebook is very tempting.

I like the new design from 2017. But to buy from tesla, most are 45k-55k. And the warranty will be over in one year. So worried about that. That’s why I thought 2018 will have that extra one year warranty.
