I’m going to include a lot of detail (more like a novel now) here. More than most people want, but many on this forum love the details. I’m only posting this here at the moment as I would prefer it go to a Tesla enthusiast. Hopefully, I’ve answered any questions below.

Has literally all then options, even the jump seats. See the Monroney label. Tesla was Porsche-like at the time with all the individual options. I bought it from the one previous owner in Columbus OH on this very subforum. It had just under 2000 miles when I got it. He decided he wanted the just announced X instead and put a deposit down on one the day I bought his S. Super nice guy. He owned this car 4-5 months.

The + designation means it has a significantly upgraded suspension over the P85. The + version wasn’t made for very long.

Gray metallic paint. The gray back then was a little lighter than now. People called it dolphin or seal gray. Black interior. Carbon fiber trim.

Sunroof

Original 21” gray turbine wheels. Still my favorite. I’ve rashed them a couple of times but had that fixed.

Yacht floor (No center console)

Autopilot 0.0

Gen 1 40 amp charger with several adapters. 80a on-board charging.

Tesla frunk bag that fits into the big space rear-wheel drive S’ have. Used once.

Tesla car cover. Used once in a garage when I went out of town for a few weeks. Missing container bag.

What’s your 90%? 230-231 miles. I have rarely charged to 100%, but the app is estimating 256 miles. EPA rated miles were 265 back then.

Extended warranty expired at the end of Oct. I intended to sell with around six months left on the extended warranty, but the delivery of my new S is taking longer than I thought, along with everyone else. I still don’t have the new S, but I can be without a car for a while. As you can see, I don’t drive much. However, I always had everything taken care of. With the extended warranty, there was no reason not to, plus that’s just me. I got around half value out of the extended warranty.

Annual service every year for the first four years, every other year after that, if you want to keep this two-year schedule, it is due another one next year. Alignments done the first four years as they were included. The steering wheel is a little off-center to the right. It has nothing to do with the alignment, but that was always Tesla’s solution.

Most major items replace, which seems par for the course back then. D pack battery (bad relay), entire drive unit (very mild internal bearing chirping sound), both displays (delaminated internally)

Last month new driver display, newer style large horizontal piece that’s below the windshield and above the dash, new 12v battery, new refreshed version cargo shelf (it lies flat when folded now)

All recall and bulletin items completed

Two fobs

LTE module

Newer version tire pressure monitors. Tire pressure is available on the display now. It wasn’t originally. I needed one replaced. Tesla replaced them all as was common.

New MCU1 per the recall. I probably would get MCU2 if I was keeping it, but the new MCU1 is solid.

Nav data very recent if you plan on a road trip right away

Titanium battery shield installed. Tesla offered this optionally to protect the front lip of the battery pack.

Front license plate holder not installed but comes with the car

Factory half-hood PPF replaced by original owner with full hood

Damage history. A few years ago, someone rolled into the back of me while looking at their cell phone. On the side of the road, I didn’t see any damage. When I got home, I noticed a long, very smooth crease in the lower part of the bumper. I had the bumper replaced by the local exotic car shop Tesla was using. The bumper the cover attaches to was replaced because Tesla changed the spacing of the parking sensors, not because it needed to be replaced. Also, some plastic fasteners were popped underneath where the bumper is attached to the diffuser. All of that was replaced, too.

I don’t know what I was daydreaming about, but I rubbed up against a foam protected column in my garage with the right rear wheel arch. The paint was buffed, but a smooth crease was made in the arch by the pressure. The crease follows the arch. I decided it wasn’t worth painting the entire quarter panel for something I don’t notice. I’ve included a picture of the right wheel arch, plus the left for comparison. A good fix a dent guy could probably make this perfect.

I have a thing about keeping damaged cars, but these two items don’t bother me at all. Your opinion may vary. Door dings drive me crazy. The Carfax is completely clean.

PPF added to rear bumper when replaced and ceramic coated. Other than this, no paint dents, dings or chips. Nosecone does show some rock marks. No factory PPF on nosecone.

BlackVue DR650GW-2CH front and back dashcams installed by me after the rear bumper replacement and attempted hit and run. I don’t like obviously aftermarket stuff on my cars, but this is as unobtrusive as it gets. No holes drilled for installation. Powered by OBD2 port. The power plug is flush. Doesn’t stick down at all.

2014 Red calipers and stickers. This car was built just before Tesla went to red calipers, which I wanted and still do, Elon. Had these painted in Fort Lauderdale, and the Tesla logo put on. I bought the logos from someone on this forum. Instead of white, I went with a metallic silver or gray, depending on the lighting. Looks great. Just a little pop on a monochromatic car. The parking brake calipers are not painted to match what the factory was doing.

2014 Spectra PhotoSync tint by Auto Super Shield in Boca Raton. Windshield 75%, sides 55%, rear 45%. Amazing tint. They later put the new rear bumper PPF on, too.

2014 Ceramic Pro is pretty much gone at this point. I’m not sure I would do it again, but the paint correction they did was great. Detailed yesterday by DNA Surface Concepts near West Palm Beach, who did the original Ceramic Pro. Besides them. I’m the only one who has washed the car since the paint correction. I use the two-bucket method with quality microfiber mitts and towels. It was last clayed and polished two years ago.

I replaced the PS2s with Pilot Super Sports around 10,500 miles because the original tires were so noisy. These PSSs with the acoustic ring are significantly better, but it’s not a quiet car going down the interstate. Hunter Road Force balanced while I stood there. New tires will be due in the next year or so, depending on how much you drive. Tesla reported 5/32 on all tires in October with no comments. The current tires have never seen cold weather.

Brake rotor hats are somewhat rusty looking, as they all were. I had this taken off once by DNA, but it came back. And early on, I replaced the yellowy incandescent license plate bulbs with LEDs to match the rest of the outside lighting.

The pictures are unedited and from an Android cell phone. The pics are nothing special, but you’ll get the idea. I generally don’t answer numbers I don’t recognize so send me a PM with your number or email, and I’ll get back to you. Thanks.

A little update for today. The price is down to $42,000.

Carvana has offered me $40k. I think it would be a shame to let this car go to a used car dealer considering what it is, but you can't beat the ease of the transaction. I'll probably let it go wholesale after this weekend if no one is interested.

Tomorrow I'll expand the listing to a couple of other sites. I'm about to get busy with other stuff so I would like to get this taken care of soon. Thanks.

Did you happen to request an offer from vroom? They offered me $40K vs $34K from Carvana for my 2015 S85 rwd. I ended up selling private party.
 
Would be interested in the frunk bag separately if you haven't given up the car yet!!
Well, it would be too awkward to ship. Kind of like shipping a big soft-sided suitcase you don't have a box for. Your profile says NYC. If you're down here in South Florida and can pick it up, you can have it. As in, literally have it.

I have a pending sale tomorrow with Carvana. They don't care about any of the accessories. Thanks to those who inquired about it.

Hmm, I was just in Orlando last week too haha. Was thinking about another spontaneous trip. I may take you up on that soon!

I am interested in this car at Carvana, I am glad I saw this post. It looks like it was very well taken care of.

I am very new to Tesla and would like to ask a quick question, if you don't mind. I have been looking at the Model S for years and I ultimately want a 2017+, but for now I just want to lower my car payment for a bit. I understand late 2016 and up has 5G. With 3G going away, what does that mean if I purchase? I just won't get any new updates? Coming from an ICE vehicle that never will update, surely that can't be a huge deal lol. Also. free super charging isn't transferrable pre 2016 correct?

I really want an S, but also want to save some money for a few years. I just don't want to regret my purchase. Thanks for any insight!

@MadamEV I'm pretty sure no Tesla has 5G yet, you're thinking of 4G / LTE. For Model S built with only 3G Tesla will retrofit 4G / LTE for $200, I had that done on my old Model S. Probably most old Model S owners have had it done by now, but if you buy one that wasn't upgraded yet, it's cheap and easy to get the upgrade done.

Alternatively you can pay much more - I think it was $2000 - for the MCU2 upgrade, which includes 4G / LTE. I opted to just get the LTE upgrade for my old Model S.

On a 2013 Model S free unlimited supercharging should transfer. I don't know when Tesla stopped making it transferable for newly built cars, but definitely on my 2013 S it transfers. (One possible exception: If you buy a used car from Tesla, they can modify the software however they want, make sure any features you expect like free unlimited supercharging are documented as part of the sale.)
