    After browsing this morning and seeing some scorching deals (Red 100D with FSD for $67) - I reached out to my OA and she mentioned this car had been cancelled many times due to various reasons:

    Excessive wear and tear
    Floor mats are torn
    Show room vehicle
    Multiple scratches on both sides
    Front and center console are worn out and not closing
    Driver door does making popping noise etc

    In addition, I reached out to my OA who said "Of course. We’re not forcing anyone to take a car they don’t want." if they disagree with the condition. I followed up with if they received a due bill at all? and she responded "No due bills on inventory. The price reduction is intended to address any issues.Your car had minimal miles on it but at $42K off I wouldn’t be expecting it to be perfect?"

    Obviously I am not chasing perfection such as a new raven from the factory, however, it is a big investment and an inventory car. Curious what your "Line " is, in regards to taking delivery, and if you have rejected, what happened next?

    It's very good to inform consumers this very important fact in advance.

    It's still listed on teslastats but when I click on the link I get redirected to new inventory in my area. Assuming that means it's gone although usually I see a message that the car is no longer available:
    | Tesla

    Very useful info in this thread since this is the first i've heard that they basically wont' address any existing cosmetic items on new inventory vehicles. You'd think they'd just fix those minor things since it would cost them much less than dropping the price so much.

    I miswored the phrase that I was looking for.
    I bought a 100D and am now concerned since there were the responses from my OA. Hearing "Your car had minimal miles on it but at $42K off I wouldn’t be expecting it to be perfect?" makes me stay vigilant.

    Makes me glad I bought used. I had a list of 27 things I wanted fixed on the car, and they put it all on the due bill. One of the items was removing all scratches with a full detail buff and polish. If it doesn't remove it, then they will replace the offending body panel.

    we just picked up a new inventory 100D from Burbank, CA last week and they provided a due bill for a few cosmetic things so this is definitely a YMMV situation it seems..

    Also to answer the OP, our original 100D had some issues so we rejected it during delivery. The delivery specialist didn't push back at all or try to get us to take the car. He was extremely accomodating and found a similar vehicle in his inventory (and aside from having to wait several hours), made the delivery happen on the same day. And it was on this "replacement" inventory car that the due bill was provided for....

    $67k is with $43k discount? Meaning this car would be $110k new? What options can you put on a LR Model S to make it $110k??

    Fully loaded would be $100k, maybe they were counting taxes, transportation fee and um... i'm reaching here. I dunno..A couple of Apple Monitor stands were in the frunk. :p

    My Used MS90D looked great. Very minor cosmetic issues and a darn ghosting windshield :mad:. My line would probably be smell since you cant really fix or repair that.

    Technically $47,900 discount because removal of EAP too.
    However its really, just a $20k discount over new Raven (85k new w/AP, Blk & 19s) LR Model S.
    Worth it, since I took delivery this week.

    Almost all of those options come standard now on the LR Model S, which also has a base price of $85,000 and not $97,500. I guess you can't add the black with carbon fiber interior now, but if you could, the total cost would be about $88,000 (about $84,000 after EV incentive) and not $110,000.

    You're still getting a big discount at $20,000, just not $47,000.

    I recognize that - but try telling that to the guy who actually bought a P90DL for $139k.

    I mean of course cars get cheaper over time but when that employee is talking about a $47k discount he/she is not being entirely truthful... it's at least very misleading.

    I don’t think they mean a 47k discount off a new one
    Rather 47k off the original MSRP

    Took delivery - went as planned - cosmetically, its pretty much new. Some dust under the crevices from sitting in storage.
    But, ultimately - super pleased.

    I bought a used model s and recently sold it. I want to buy a new one and get a free ludicrous upgrade. I’m told it’s only offered to original buyers. If you have that option I’d like to use it as a counter and I’ll pay $1k to buy you out of it. I’ll fully find the purchase cash. I’m in Vegas. Let me know if you have tine for that.
