How much wear/tear on used Ludicrous models (P100DL mainly) due to launches / hard driving?

Sorry if this is a newbie question, but what do folks think about the potential for battery, motor and other (suspension? wiring?) degradation due to a previous owner using Ludicrous or Ludicrous+ mode a lot? I couldn't easily find too much info by searching the existing threads.

I'm seeing some prices come down again for the early '16/'17 P100DL's. Not a lot but have seen a few used ones go for only $10-12k more than a lot of the used refresh 90D's. Usually the P100DL's have all of the options, bigger battery, faster charging, etc, so I've started wondering if it's a worthwhile upgrade from a refresh 90D (v3 battery).

Has anyone purchased a used 2016-2017 P100DL and regretted it? Or bought new and have had to get the motor, wiring, or battery replaced on the P100DL's, or seen extensive range degradation?
