Hate to be a pessimist, but how much is AP2 worth in 3 years when your battery fails on your $52k car?
Nothing like a $22k repair on a car worth $25k.
Tesla has shown they care very little about cars after 8 years. So you really should be at least considering $10k for salvage and look at your monthly cost down to month 96. So if we pick mid 2016 car, it has 37 months left. 52-10/37 = $1130 per month.
And you NEED to supercharge because of commute? Ouch.
