    Found a 2013 S85 CPO for what seems like an amazingly low price and decided to pull the trigger. So excited!

    It's an early VIN model, so I want to be sure all the issues w/ early models have been dealt with before delivery. From reading these forums, I know about leaky tail lights, problematic Pano roof, and drivetrain replacements. How easy/hard is it to get service records from Tesla, and how should I make sure the car is in true CPO condition when I pick it up?

    Check the door handles. I don't know if the early problems with those were resolved by the time your's was built but check to see if they have been replaced.
    If it's a CPO, they should have (and should give you) the complete service history.
