    74616429-44F6-49FC-AECA-453D7388CF0D.png I was looking on the tesla cpo site and I found I fully loaded x p90d ludicrous for $100,000, you should probably know that I am seriously considering a brand new model x 75d fully loaded. Both cars cost the same, and I was wondering which one I would get. The color is exactly the one I want, and so are all of the options. I am especially concerned because early model x cars had bad production quality. Please help.

    Do you care about the extra range? If not, I'd go the 75D Route.

    Also, have you considered depreciation (some already eaten by the original owner of the 90) and the tax incentives that the new one would have?

    A lot of the CPO decision should/would come down to your ability to claim all or almost all of the tax incentives with a new purchase.

    If you can, new/inventory tends to make sense.

    If you can't, CPO makes sense, as the original owner taking the tax incentives is already factored into the price.

    That being said, we love our X90D

    Thanks from r all of the input in New York the tax credit is 7500 plus 2000 state incentive. However, the appeal mostly comes from the fact that I am getting such a high end car for about $60000 less than originally. Could anybody give any insight as to the build quality of such an early car. I also doubt that there is much battery degredation because of the relatively low miles that the car has driven.

    What month was it produced? My Oct 2016 X has been great. A few squeaks that were quickly taken care of.

    This one still has a long way to go before it's out of warranty. Ours was in the 20k range in terms of VIN and I'd say after 6 mos they've finally worked all the kinks out... Mostly one falcon door was finicky... Get the fast one :) they'll make sure it stays in working order or better :)

    I would also consider AP1 vs AP2. Regarding build quality I have a Dec 2016 model x and I did have to go to service center 4 times in the first few months of ownership to get a couple things that broke fixed. It's only been like 3 months since our last service center visit so I think jury is still out.

    I’m actually more worried about massive panel gaps between the doors. Because when ever I happen to see an early model x the panel gaps are huge. Also could anybody shed some light on how much the battery has probably degraded after 20,000 miles.

    I do understand that the cpo car will effectively be $8000 dollars more than a brand new 75d, but the attraction of having such a high performance car at such a low price is a huge incentive.

    I had the same dilemma, went for a new discounted inventory 90D. If there are any left, go for it. If you only care about performance the non P is sufficient but you could go for the P90D.

    Can you request the service records or history for the CPO? Might reveal problems that the previous owner may have had with this Founders Edition.

    I would also be interested what the cpo refurbishment process consists of.

    F in front of the F00117 VIN number is for Founders Edition. All Founders Editions were basically fully loaded and options for color, seating and wheels.

    If there is an "S" it means Signature Edition and if there is a "P" it is for production vehicle used for Model S.

    Yes, it's a loaded Founders edition.. a historic vehicle
    downside is possible issues with the very early build (before production 001 even).. what a great dilemma to have!
