Well that's the thing. In CT, anything over $50K gets a higher tax bracket and with the trade-in tax credit this will save me over $4K. I am sure I can get $3-4K more than Tesla but then I lose the tax credit. I am going to try and negotiate. They told me KBB value originally and the market for my car is stronger than ever. I don't see why they are undervaluing it so much. It's the principal. I am not unrealistic either my car is immaculate with extremely low miles, almost a full warranty, and it looks better than new after paint correction and quartz coating. They are not even offering me the lowest of the KBB trade in values. At some point I just keep my current car and wait and give the market a year or two and see what the competition does.
Well obviously if it makes more sense to trade it into Tesla for the tax savings. I would have done the same thing. Here in Minnesota it is different. I would have saved over a thousand in taxes if I would have "purchased" it in Wisconsin. Which is less than 20 minutes from me
