    Hello all. I've just listed my Roadster on ebay:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190851838906&ssPageName=ADME:L:LCA:MOTORS:1123#ht_500wt_1182

    I love this car, but I've started my second start-up and am funding the pre-seed myself, so need all resources on deck. My last company was, as so many are, majority VC owned, and I'm hoping to delay that as long as possible on this one. This is what "all in" looks like....

    Let me know if you're interested or know someone who is!

    That's a tough kind of 'all in'!:frown: I nearly bought this car ahead of you, back at 600-700 miles odo but connected on a founders car instead.

    I am not in the market, but one question I am sure will be asked is on the state of the battery pack. One ebay pic shows range mode charge at 242 ideal miles (with maybe 5% more to go) - was the pack replaced at some point with a new one?

    It is the original battery pack, with no problems at all since I have had it.

    Nice. Can I ask also what you typically see for ideal miles on a full standard charge?

    I sincerely wish you good luck - but similarly equipped 1.5s with 14-15K miles have been selling for $55-65K. Yours is a great color combo and looks to be in great shape - but I wouldn't hold my breath for a buyer at $85K.

    I think this is the right price. If I'm off the mark, it won't kill me at all to keep it. :)

    I purchased #115 directly from Tesla today for $54,415 with only 6,XXX miles and 3 year factory warranty

    Wow, that's a low price! When I last looked at the Tesla website listing used Roadsters, the lowest price was $79.5 K, and there was only one of those. It seems that now there are several around $60K. What a drop! Ok, I stand corrected. I will lower my price. But I'm not sure I'm willing to go as low as you paid. I'd really rather keep it. Tough one.

    RobM, I have a suggestion for you rather than selling on Ebay etc for $60K. Just sent you an email here on TMC.
