    Hi, a lot of you know I have changed cars a lot. I am in currently a 2017 Tesla 3 Midnight Silver with 7700 miles ish. The car has PUP, EAP and adds for paint also has a $3k ish wrap. A friend wants to trade me his 2018 1200 miles 3 with NO EAP and he is adding $6500.

    What do you think? which one is better?

    Would you rather have the 2017 more miles with wrap and EAP or 2018 less miles and the cash?

    miles means nothing to Tesla, you have 8 years 120k miles warrants anyway. And electric motors do not wear out like gas engines.

    what's it worth for you? If you change cars "a lot", you should know better than most of us

    I want an X and not getting a lot of action on the wrapped 3 is the reason I am considering it.

    Just curious. If you intended to get a color wrap, why didn't you just get black instead of paying the extra $1k for silver?

    I guess here is another way of asking

    What do you think real dollars is if I sell the pear white 2018 with 1200 miles NO EAP?

    You're essentially trading a car with 7,700 miles and $3k worth of wrapping cost for one with 1,200 miles and $500 in cash. Unless you regret the wrap and getting EAP, I don't see much value in the trade for you.

    Right but it might sell better. I was hoping - essentially I would want to get $46K for it

    Wrap cheapens the car IMO ..you won’t get 46k when can get the federal credit plus most states have a rebate as well ...since Tesla stocked a lot of RWDs folks are getting quicker ..if you wrapped in PPF there is probably some value ..but u wrapped a unique color and don’t see many folks opting for that

    In AZ if you buy from a dealer you have to pay fees and tax and from Private Party you do not have to pay tax. So I dont think a tax credit is a big deal to everyone.

    Sorry

    meant to say, I am trying to sell the wrapped 3 and I have one person interested who has a pearl white 2018 but no action on people wanting to buy it. I am trying to sell but not having luck, I want to go back to an X

    I think it will be easier to sell the white car than the wrapped car. I don't think the mileage really matters in the whole equation too much. Not sure if you can get $46k for either vehicle, but as you highlight the math will be different in different states.
