    I have written confirmation from Tesla that a Roadster pre-paid battery replacement contract can be used for the R80 battery upgrade for as little as $4,000 out of pocket. Because of the redemption period terms of paragraph 4 of the battery contract, that more specifically means the R80 battery upgrade has an out of pocket cost of:

    $6,000 - during the 8th year of the contract
    $5,000 - during the 9th year of the contract
    $4,000 - during the 10th year of the contract
    I sought clarification and confirmation of this from Tesla because I recently put my 2010 Roadster Sport up for sale, and the pre-paid battery replacement contract will transfer with the car to the new owner. This raises the value of that contract to $25,000, higher than I had thought.

    My ad in the For Sale section has more info:
    2010 Roadster Sport

    Did Tesla put in writing what the warranty on the battery and other modifications to the car is?

    That's what I would like to confirm. Is the PEM included? 3 years or 1 year? I've heard all possibilities.
