    Hi all,

    I want a Dual motor Tesla so old 85D's and new generation 75D's are the best options for me i think.

    Brand-new 75D costs 15k euros more than a used 85D for me now. It's a lot of for me.

    2017 75D pros: Facelift, HW2 hardware, middle-console, maybe new battery pack and components?(contactors etc.)(low probability of having problems?)

    2017 75D cons: More expensive

    2015 85D cons: Old-look, possible contactor or any other component problems?, old HW1 hardware etc.

    NOTE: Probability of having problems which potentially makes car doesnt work is very important for me because of there is no Service Center and Ranger service in my country! :(

    What will be your advices?

    Datapoint of one: I'm 7 hours away from a service center and recently upgraded from a 2013 S85 to a 2015 85D. Couldn't be happier so far.

    I am way more away from a Service Center like 1500km. :(

    How much did you use your 85D so far? And how often you accelerate hard? Because i experience that hard acceleration faults contactors more easily?

    That's about twice as far as me! I've only had this one about a month, but it has 57K miles and still feels pretty much like new. Just wanted to give you my experience with build quality and model and year. I can't help you with the question about the contractors. Good luck!
