Maybe the car was a theft recovery.
The cleaner car photo is just when the car came in. The temp plates are still on it and in later photos it was ripped off. The Copart yards are really dirty. As Kirby64 stated, the stickers are the same lot number on the car.
I think that the only picture taken out of order is the ninth one (the nice clean and shiny photo). It has a front paper plate that is not visible in the other photos but the sticker on the window and yellow writing seems the same.
Are you seriously going to keep going on like this or just give away whatever your stupid point is?
How about pointing out what you think is different instead of being coy and playing games? This isn't a "find what's different" puzzle.
Okay, I've looked at all the pictures three times. Exactly what do you see that I don't? And please be specific.
I am entertaining this idea. Not sure how easy it is to sell given its all computerized?
Copart sells cars for insurance companies. It’s basically a junkyard. There is a ton of corruption there. There’s a reason they are selling it. I would take the bus every day before I would buy a car from them!
You have a better chance of winning Powerball than getting a good deal on a car there.
Ok, maybe you're right. I do now see the windshield sticker on both versions.
I've had really good experiences buying ICE cars from there in great condition after minor damage like a hail storm. There are some deals to be had.
Coy or snippy? What's your poison? The English language ain't a perfect medium.........
This my friend: go click through the pictures.
Are you talking about the paper temp plate from July that is missing? It probably was ripped off or melted away with all that dirt thats washed up on the car now.
Copart appears to have many lots across the country. My only dealing with them was when I donated my 2000 BMW 323i to Habitat for Humanity. Copart was the actual company that arranged pickup of the car and handled the paperwork.
For a "salvage" Model 3, that appears to have arrived at the Copart lot able to drive under its own power, I'd guess that something happened to the underside of the car (the only photos we don't have access to). It could have been dropped off a transporter or lift. Major suspension work might be needed. Or maybe one of the motors is damaged. Either way, I would only buy it to part it out.
Ok, listen. I was wrong. I know, weird, right? Did I mention that I was not correct in my analysis? I gonna say three Hail Mary's for starters, let me know what else I can do to make it up............
Also looking at where the car is located in the lot - it has been moved - from an area near a fence to a area between many other cars. Thus I didn't find it to be surprising that the pictures were different.
Yeah, this also could be the case. Anyone wanna make a $100 to go check it out lol? Probably right to not think of it for anything else than parts.
I'd be very concerned that it's deemed salvaged with under 300mi's.
Your choice to buy it and part it out or buy a donor and match the drive train. End of the project, you may have one working car and parts to sell.
The old motto: "If sounds to good to be true it probably is." definitely applies to used cars. Can you afford to be out 15 grand? If you can you can probably afford to buy a Tesla from more reliable source or new even.
Keep in mind that these people sell cars for a profit and they have a lot more experience selling than you'll ever have buying. They aren't going to come up short on the sale. That means this car is far worse than it appears.
He's the salvageking > likely his business to rebuild cars and sell for a profit - good hunting!
