    The 14th I'm planning to acquire a used S85. (So freaking excited)!!!!!

    Anyone bought a used one? How do I tell the car I'm the new owner?

    link it to my iPhone?

    anything to look out for buying used? It's got 15,000 miles but still well under the 4 year 50k warranty.

    Thanks for any help!

    Welcome!

    I'm not sure how this is done but I assume it's through Tesla Service. I'd give them a call and ask -- 844 248-3752.

    Thanks

    Ok, I'll give them a call when my wife and I are spending 10 hours driving it home.

    We we plan to hit 4-6 super chargers!

    I don't think I'm going to sleep all week now.

    You have to send them a copy of the registration, which shows the VIN and you as the registered owner.

    The excitement never quite fades away. I look forward eagerly to driving my Model S every day.

    I just did this process with Denarius' P85+ that I now own. Really pretty simple.

    1. Setup an myTesla account here https://my.teslamotors.com/user/login

    2. When you register the car (temporary or permanent) send the following information to [email protected]
    · Color copy or photo of your current driver’s license
    · Copy or photo of the vehicle registration or title (Temporary registration is ok)
    · Phone number
    · Email address
    · Verify home or mailing address

    3. Give them a day or two and you will be connected to the car on the mobile app.

    4. Enjoy an awesome driving experience for years to come.

    See you are in PA -- where about? Are you headed East or West to get the car? Simply ask because if you're getting the car from west of me, but live in PA east of me, you may be passing through Cleveland. If so, you'll be supercharging not far from me! Congrats on the new (pending purchase) vehicle!

    Service will take a temp one. It takes 12-24 hours to set it up..but you can download the tesla app in preparation. It'll all link into your my tesla account.
