    Hey everyone

    Just purchased a used 2014 Model S about a month ago. I found the car for sale on Cars.com in Myrtle Beach. Talked with owner over text, email, and phone calls. Eventually bought a plane ticket to Myrtle Beach, checked the car out in person and test drove it, then handed his bank a check and drove the car back to Atlanta.

    I AM LOVING THE CAR. So much fun to drive and have gotten a lot of interest from friends. Looking forward to becoming part of the community.

    Bought the car with no mods. Since then have done a chrome delete and added 21" Vossen HF-1's. Next step is to tint windows and lower the car.

    Look gorgeous! Good choice of color, the nose cone is not noticeable and the combination of black 21" and red calipers is outstanding.

    When buying from a third party, not a CPO, do you still get warranty coverage and access to service centers?

    Congrats! And welcome to the joy of ownership. Is this your first electric car?

    Hiding the nose cone was one of the goals! Yes, the warranty does transfer over when buying from a private seller :)

    Indeed it is. Pretty sure I'm never going back to ICE!

    How do you like the Vossen HF-1s? Did you get the staggerd 21s? (21x9 and 21x10)

    Didn’t get staggered. MS’s eat thru tires so I wanted to be able to rotate as much as possible

    Good to see another new owner in Atlanta! I just took delivery on a Model 3 two weeks ago.

    Love it!

    I am making a few changes to mine, along lines similar to yours. I already swapped in a new set of wheels/tires and i’m Planning a few suspension tweaks as well.

    I hope you enjoy yours as much as i’m Beginning to enjoy mine!
