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...
