    Hi folks - I am new to the X forum. We are thinking of replacing our S with an X soon and I have my eyes on one (private party). High level specs:

    2016 Midnight Grey 90 D
    Auto Pilot 1
    Black Textile Seats
    Seven seater
    Carbon Fiber interior
    Regular 20" rims that came with the car
    Miles - 26K
    Asking: $80K

    I realize that the new MCU just came out and that the rear seats cannot be folded all the way down like the 2017 ones. I am more concerned about the seats not being able to fold down than the MCU update, as that I understand stuff like that is just going to happen with tech etc.

    Clearly IMO $80K is a bit much, but what would you consider a good deal?

    Thanks!

    Can you still get government ev rebate where you are from? You should take that into consideration. Also consider Tesla has dropped prices within the last year. Best way to see if it is worth it is to price out a new one with same options and see what difference is. Also are you getting a used car loan? Interest can make a difference also. May not be worth it getting used when you factor everything.

    When we ordered last August i think it was prices had just dropped so it just didn't seem like that great of a deal buying a used or inventory one. I still see used 90D on Autotrader for more than I got my new 100D.
    Also, do you want folding middle row or not? We got folding middle row and am glad we did. Have had a older loaner and just didn't like the motorized seats at all. To each their own thought. Its what you prefer.

    My personal opinion.... Tesla having dropped prices and the government rebates have made the used market not that great of deals. I expect more discount for used cars. But remember they paid more for their cars.

    Consider this, when I did a test drive on a 75D to when I actually bought my 100D price on the 75D was under $1000 dollar cheaper. I'm not saying you can't find good deals, just consider all options and price out difference.

    Good luck

    Personally, I wouldn't worry about the MCU, but I would care about AP2 over AP1.

    Great points and you are correct. The prices for new have dropped and the options are all inclusive. I can option out a new 75D for around $82K net with the color of my choice as well as other options not to include folding seats, AP2, newer MCU and best of all brand new. I guess that’s why the June delivery.

    Bit of advice though..... Not sure how cold it gets where you live but I have experienced close to 60% of supposed reported mileage when it's colder. As in snow storms and freezing temps.

    Make sure 75D mileage is enough for you. You don't actually get the mileage car states.

    In the Pacific Northwest, more rainy than cold, mostly in the early-mid 40's in winter. Wow, 60%? That is a LOT???

    I got my 2016 90D with leather seats and fully loaded options just 6k miles from a non-Tesla car dealer, and its price isn't much more than the private-party deal you are eye'ing on. So you definitely would have some room to haggle.

    As for size of the battery, I feel 90D is just enough, or any of my long distance trip would be impacted by AC/heating/terrain. Good choice of getting a used one.

    You may also want to do your homework on 90D batteries. Also might be good to confirm with the seller what mileage they are at when the battery is at a 90% state of charge and make sure it's within acceptable specs.

    Yes 60%

    It was -18 celcius or for you neighbours south of the border -39 Fahrenheit.
