    In case anyone was wondering what happened to my crashed Roadster... damage exceeded €33.000,- so the leasecompany didn't want to repair it any more, making it an economical total loss. They sold it, and now you can buy it from a damaged cars dealer for €39.750,- Netto export price: €32.851,-

    Aanbod - Boonstra Schadevoertuigen

    NB: They got some of the extra's wrong... the headlights aren't Xenon. Seats are microfiber, not alcantara. There is no such thing as power steering on a Tesla, etc...
    NB2: not sharing this because I'm the seller... I'm in no way attached to the car anymore, except for emotionally :crying:

    I'd love to buy that microfiber interior. But I can't justify the pricetag for that alone :)

    I see you already had 95000km? What was your CAC?

    LOL @ BartJ

    m0rph: Yes, I drove about 50-60K last year. My last CAC reading wasn't that good, because it had been in service for over a week after a period of overheating problems. I saw it go down from CAC ~140 to 135.

    Indeed... If you add the damage-estimation of 33K to the price, you would have to spend 72.000 (worst case... could probably be repaired much cheaper) on it to be back on the road again. And then you would have a Tesla Roadster that has been sitting in a storage for over a month now, without being put into storage mode, no fuse has been pulled, et cetera. In other words: your battery would be dying.

    If the car hasn't been plugged in for weeks the battery could be toast.
    Surely the seller is keeping it plugged in? Tell them if they don't maintain the battery, the value of the car they are trying to sell is close to nothing. No one will buy it at anywhere near there asking price if the battery is bricked.
    It is very sad to see a Roadster in such a sorry state. [emoji22]

    The more I watch your video the more I see just how solid these cars are.

    You beat the crap out of and spun another car, yet were still able to drive away.

    Sorry you are losing her, but glad we can all talk about this from outside a hospital.

    Best,

    That one has battery issues...

    - - - Updated - - -

    I also saw a drop when I had overheating problems, but it recovered a bit after that. Now at 148.3 @ 63000km, "aiming" for >140 at 100000km
    Do you consider buying another roadster btw?

    Chillout - any chance you can get the Type 2 - Roadster charging cable back (and sell it to me for a reasonable price :biggrin: )

    I'll do my best. I e-mailed the sellers 2 days ago because of some errors in their ad, but so far no reply.
