    From the North West, plan to get a M3. I work in Cumbria, live in Lancater / Wirral.

    CPO Tesla - CPO Tesla | Home

    This is the first build. It crawls the CPO listings every 10 minute and records them. I am hoping to detect and estimate trends in the availability and prices of used Model S'.
    I may also have notifications etc. at some point.
    Let me know what you think, anything else you would like to see added?

    Hey that's looking great and love the fact you can click through to see the vehicle on the Tesla website! Be good to start seeing more 70 and 70D's.

    Come June it'll be two years since Model S deliveries started in the UK so we may see lots more used examples coming online.

    Keep up the good work!

    I really like it Danny!
    I suppose a map showing where the cars are located would be interesting?

    I'd just pick up on the aesthetic but I'm a designer. Type is a little large on iPad but not a deal breaker. Perhaps you could also list countries alongside each other thus:

    UK | US | CAN | DK etc etc

    Um, there might be a bug. In the P85D number 090197 says Autopilot No, but the Tesla site says Yes. Having said that, this is great and saves a lot of time scanning for what interests. Keep up the good work.

    Good spot. It was the only car that didn't scrape properly.

    Sorted now and added a check to make sure it doesn't happen again.

    It'd be good to pull through if it's possible the interior colour. Not a fan of the lighter ones and so for example the 70 looks great until you get to the Tesla listing. Interior is certainly a deal breaker for me.

    Hmm, I do have that data and I can add it to the tables.

    But I think the real solution is to allow users to select what they want themselves.

    that's nice. would have come in handy when I kept searching for a CPO to buy before I found the 70d i'm picking up on Tuesday! :):) FYI though, Tesla staff have far more available than they list on the website (I went through 3 models that weren't on the website before I could finally buy one - somebody kept snapping them up!)

    Even more than the inventory (showroom) list?

    would seem so. even though I asked if there were others available (they said no), as the ones they were offering me were being sold under my nose (literally whilst I was on the phone trying to buy it) they kept magically within a few minutes finding models for me to buy that were ex-demo/showroom models that 'suddenly came up'. would've been really pissed off but actually ended up with exactly what I wanted for a decent price so no harm done really.

    also they will sell you any showroom model / demo car they have on the lot if you ask, they just ring head office for a price.

    Nice work. As SK01 said... They do have other cars available that aren't on the website.

    Josh from Heathrow was fantastic and found me some cracking cars.

    Eventually settled on a P85+ which is already showing on the list and I collect Tuesday :)

    Nice to see that you were able to get something working so quickly, for the US as well. ;-)

    Any chance of adding the interior colour to the table?

    Cheers
