    They are practically the same price with the same options, but the P85D has 8k miles. Is build quality the same?

    Definitely 2014 P85D. Better value for your money as the initial depreciation hit of about $20K has already been taken off the value of the car.

    The 90D is fast but not P85D fast.

    How long do you plan to keep the car?
    Having 18 month of additional warranty may be interesting.
    The P85D is very very fast, the 90D is more than fast enough.

    Going new and chose the options you want has some value too.

    For the same price I would go with the 2016 if the wait is not too long.

    Note:
    We sold our 2014 to get a 2015 D with autopilot. Quality improvements are noticeable. We are really happy that we did upgrade.

    The p85d has all the options I wanted in the new car. Any interior build quality differences? Creaks etc?

    Are you more interested in a little more 0-60 speed or range and a little more ride comfort? Agree on the value of picking your own colors and options. Build quality has also improved.

    The colors and options of the P85D are great, I would choose them on the new car.

    Only concern is that creaks and stuff may exist. I've heard on the newest models, it is mostly all gone. Thoughts?

    Again, same price for new 90D and 2014 P85D.

    You might want to get some insurance quotes as well. When shopping around recently, a friend found insurance for a P85 would've cost him several thousand dollars more per year than a non-P model. The non-P would only be slightly more expensive than his current Ford Fusion.

    How can I do that without the VIN?

    - - - Updated - - -

    Nevermind, used the VIN on a P85D I found on a used car dealer site. Progressive quoted me for the same amount. Weird, you'd figure the insurance should be higher on a P85D going from an 85.

    Ultimately comes down to Range vs Accceleration. Does the P85D have sufficient range for you? If so, take the P85D.

    This is is coming from a 90D owner.

    The 90D is 108 - 7.5k = 100,500. The p85d is 106k.

    No inventory P85D?
    I just had the same dilemma between October-90D and 2015-July-build P85D both inv cars
    Spec were the same but price was 8K higher on P
    I went with P85D
    Insurance is very small difference
    Total: $106K vs $114K

    Same dilemna as you, P85D vs 85D.
    It was also a green CPO whose color I preferred and couldn't get anymore on a new one so I went for the green P85D CPO.
    The rear NextGen seats clutter up your rear view mirror visibility more than the regular rear seats...but that's also what I have and happily living with it.

    One BIG difference, currently, you can NOT get an extended warranty on CPOs!!!
    So you have the four years/50K miles bumper2bumper + 8 years unlimited millage motor/battery but you won't be able to extend the bumper2bumper portion.
    If you're planning on keeping it longer than four years AND normally buy extended warranty for your cars, CPO is not the best choice!

    Now whether the extended warranty is worth it is another debate and a matter of personal taste...and there are plenty of other TMC threads on just that debate! :)
