After a week of emails, texts and phone calls confirming various things (including a discussion with the Tesla service center that did the annual service) and negotiating a price, I agreed to purchase a 2008 1.5 Roadster from an individual 1700 miles away. The price was reflective of the lack of warranty and refurbishment vs. a CPO, but it had just been in for annual service and nothing was noted re: the PEM or ESS (on the paperwork or in my dicussion with the service advisor). I began the process of setting up transport and escrow, while the seller was looking into what he neeed to do to get the lien removed from the title. Unfortunately, the seller called last night to say that he had someone local stop by, test drive the car, and buy it (for more than we agreed upon of course). Just venting . Thanks for listening.
