    Hello!

    For reasons I may explain later on, I have a short term incentive to sell my P85D.

    As of right now that car has 34,248 miles. 100% charge is 245 miles (which is down only 2 miles from the 247 EPA rating at delivery). Original blue.

    Full VIN: 5YJSA1H24EFP64184

    I will post some photos later on if there's interest, but I think we all know what Teslas look like these days.

    Here is the sheet from my original order:
    [​IMG]

    Some bullet points:
    • Added the Ludicrous upgrade ($5k)
    • LTE retrofit ($500)
    • Only option available at the time that the car doesn't have is the rear facing seats.
    • Autopilot (included in Tech Package when I ordered)
    • December 2014 delivery (just before Christmas, so about 2 years now)
    • Has front AND REAR next gen seats
    • P85+ type suspension with staggered stance
    • Have annual service contract with Tesla and have done the first two services
    • No major component failures or warranty work

    Believe it or not, this car isn't actually modified at all besides some software mods (rooted, disable autopilot restrictions) and adding a dash cam. Either or both can be left as is or reverted per buyer's preference. This car is still under warranty and fully supported by Tesla (still gets updates, warranty work, etc).

    The car is in excellent condition. 100% garage kept in Hickory, NC. As some here may already be aware the car was involved in a minor accident several months ago. All was repaired by a Tesla Certified Body Shop, and everything was restored back to perfect condition. I showed the repaired areas to a gentleman I know who works in repair of high end vehicles and he could not tell the car had been repaired. Realistically, it wasn't even a repair. It was just replacing of the damaged body panels with brand new ones.

    I recently got a trade-in estimate from Tesla where they accounted for all of the above and they valued the car at $101k.

    Anyway, I'll entertain reasonable offers for a bit here and go from there. I'd have to sell the car within the next week or so (or have a solid arrangement in place at least)... or at worst before the end of the year, for this to make any sense on my end.

    Would make a great holiday gift for someone! :D

    ---

    Dug out some photos. I actually don't take many pictures of the car these days. lol.

    Got a couple of questions for clarification already privately. Here are my replies:

    • This is the original darker blue, yeah. Looks an awesome blue in sunlight, and near black at night.
    • This car came from the factory with the next gen seats, one of the first ever.
    • The Ludicrous retrofit was offered as a $5k service to P85D owners who purchased before the announcement of the Ludicrous option. This was officially done by Tesla.
    • The LTE retrofit was an official paid upgrade from Tesla for cars that shipped with a 3G modem.

    I hope you don't think this question is unreasonable but why sell it for less than what tesla is giving you?

    Not only are they giving you more money but also the ease of trading a car in rather than dealing with private parties.

    They wouldn't. The trade payment is less than what they value it at, so splitting the difference here basically.

    Edit: And probably more importantly, trading in doesn't make sense since I'm not buying another new Tesla.

    I've had a few people asking me why I'd sell the P85D and not the P85 that I have retrofitted with autopilot. I'll c/p my response here:

    honestly, a few reasons. the biggest being that I'd rather not sell the P85 since it's now heavily modified. I would rather keep that one in the family, per se. Last thing I need is someone to buy it, die while doing something stupid while using autopilot, and then somehow it come back to me for retrofitting it.

    My P85D has basically no modifications of consequence, so, no real liability there.

    So does this mean you aren't going to help us retrofit to the V2 autopilot?

    This is horrible news. I'll post this around, I might know an interested party or two.

    Well, I think it'd be more interesting to retrofit AP2.0 on to the P85 :p

    Wise decision - this could be a huge liability - you could buy the full Autopilot Level 5 when it becomes available in a few years!

    Had a few people interested because of my note about disabled autopilot restrictions.

    Currently I have two restrictions disabled: +5 MPH speed limit rule on non-highway; Hands-on requirement. Basically I get no nags ever unless the car has no data to go on, in which case it goes to take over immediately. Other than that I can let autopilot remain enabled once enabled and never be asked to hold the wheel.

    Got a couple more questions privately... you know, you guys can just post here and I don't have to duplicate info. hehe

    Anyway...

    Yes, I am entertaining best offers. (Thought I mentioned that in the first post.)

    Yes, I probably will withdraw the sale listing if an arrangement hasn't begun within the next couple of weeks. Nothing nefarious here, but personal reasons.

    Omg wk057 you probably just scared a bunch of folks with your statement that you're not getting another Tesla, so please tell us about the
    concerning your decision to sell your P85DL.

    Are you really done tinkering now?

    @lunitiks I assume he is close to done repairing the salvage Model X he bought, and that will be his car going forward.

    Not done tinkering. As far as buying another Tesla, what I said was that I'm not trading a car in... I didn't exactly say I'm not buying another Tesla... I'm just not buying another new Tesla. ;)

    Holy crap, this is my dream car. Not sure I can come up with the scratch though and sell my current P85+. Yikes.

    I'd probably be willing to accept a P85+ plus cash in payment... but I'm not sure if you'd feel too good about it considering the depreciation sledgehammer hit on pre-AP car values :(

    That would be really tough to let go of my P85+.. I've done a lot of mods:

    Rear Lighted Applique
    Front Camera kit
    Two-channel dash-cam
    Autoflexed
    8-year service plan
    4-year extended warranty
    Un-staggered 21" rims (grey).

    We could swap the wheels, but for everything else, I'd have to move all of the mods over, get another full Autoflex, and re-purchase the ESA and service plan.

    I've always said that I'll drive this car for many more year before I upgrade, so I get the benefit of years of more advances and innovation before jumping in again. As much as I want a D car with the + suspension and next gen seats, it still has the same 85kwh battery (I'm getting 250 [email protected]% on mine, with slightly less mileage).

    If I had spare money to just blow, I'd jump on this in an instant.

    The funny thing is that I drive down to Conover every August. So close.

    Well, I can leave the dash cam if that makes or breaks a deal. :p

    OK, turns out that last call on this has come earlier than expected. If no arrangement made by tonight I'll be withdrawing my ad.
