Never sure where posts like this go. Looking for value advice. I'm consodering a trade. Below are my options for now... I own the X but my friend wants to trade me and add cash.

1. $78,000 Tesla X AP1, tech, premium pack, 6 seating tan leather, 20s w bad ties, titanium color is kinda ugly, sub zero package. 27k miles two years left on warranty.

2. $63000 for 2015 S P85d Insane with tech, Ap, hi fi, spoiler, carbon interior, 21" Rotoform wheels 2 piece forged $6000 when new w ok tires, pano roof, alcantara, rest executive seating, tan leather, center console I'm sure I missed things. 52700 miles no warranty.

I have no kids so that doesn't bother me. The X is a little more comfortable but I'm more about value.

Really two different cars. The P85D is the fun bumpy sports car for 1. Great for running errands and just driving cause you want to. The X is the smooth comfortable family car for 6. Great for road trips.

P85dLi will hold its value better.

As for a 2016 X...I would not do it. Mine had lots of issues...I could not off load that thing fast enough.

That is the main reason why I went back to a P85D.

I do plan on selling the S though and getting a newer X.

Don't all P85D's have Insane?, mine has it. I just got it and like it but I want another X. Just listed my P85D for sale.

NO it is $10K add and you would know as it would actually say "Insane" mode instead of just chill and sport. Text me about my X for you P85D 6027155476

I don't think this is correct. Insane mode is standard on P85D which was 0-60 in 3.2s. Ludicrous option was the additional add on which was offered for $5000 for the P85D I believe, and shortened 0-60 to 2.8s.
Wrong

I'm sorry to inform you, but both of those statements were actually correct.

All P85Ds came with Insane mode. See the windows sticker for a Dec '14 P85D below (if the image upload works)

Tesla offered a $5,000 Ludicrious mode upgrade for P85D owners: Tesla Drops Price of P85D Ludicrous Upgrade to $5,000

+1 what @HankLloydRight said. All P85D (production began November 2014) came with Insane Mode, initially 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds, then slightly improve to 3.1 seconds via software update in February 2015. In July 2015, Tesla announced P90D with Ludicrous Mode as a $10k option (also required a $3000 battery upgrade). In appreciation of the original P85D owners, Tesla offered a $5000 retrofit special to upgrade P85D to P85D Ludicrous with 0-60mph of 2.9 seconds.

There are no P85D that don't have at least Insane Mode.

Yes, it would.

But nobody has ever seen or heard of a P85D being 'upgraded' to Insane mode for $10k before.. when all P85Ds came with Insane mode. My December 2014 P85D has Insane mode as standard, just like every P85D. Maybe you have a P90D and paid the $10k to upgrade to Ludicrous mode. Maybe they installed the Ludicrous hardware, didn't update the software flags to enable Ludicrous mode on the touchscreen.

If you have a receipt showing otherwise, please share it. That should solve the mystery.
