    Is there any way to check if a used Model S has AP enabled based solely on the VIN?

    I see lots of used Model S for sale from various places both online and offline, but the sometimes the listings are not very specific, so I don't know a good way to confirm if the car has AP (or any other feature) by using just the VIN?

    How would this work when AP is software enabled?

    The Tesla Tap one shows that you may be able to tell what’s a P but that’s about it.

    If the car was ever listed for sale on as an Inventory or CPO/used car, you can try putting the VIN into the Option Code Lookup tool here: EV-CPO Option Code Lookup
