Should I buy a used TMS or a new TM3?

Hello, I have finally gotten the opportunity to be able to buy a Tesla vehicle! I am very interested in an older Model S car, such as a 2015 85D or maybe a 2016 75D, so my question is: Is it more worth it to buy a new Model 3 Long Range Dual Motor or go for an older Model S? I would love some feedback :)

Found this Model S (see attachment) for approx. ~ $46000 while a new Model 3 costs ~ $49000
There might be an obvious answer for some of you, but I am really speculating...

Definitely Model 3 if for no other reason than the battery pack is much more advanced and modern. Tesla is nerfing the older Model S Supercharging speeds on the older vehicles. You'll see plenty of threads on TMC about this.

If you prefer the voluminous rear hatch space, bigger more comfortable back seat, pano roof, or generally more sleeker and upscale look of the S, then get that, otherwise a model 3 with its newer technology.
