It seems we had very similar ideas. As, I was also in the market for a Model 3 and rented one from Herz, which I took on road trip to get the full experience. After, the trip I decided to purchase one. I was able to buy a 2020 SR for a little over 39k all said and done with less than 11k miles. Very clean and 1 owner. So, it just depends on the model your are looking for and having patience to find one at your price point.
