    Will be interesting to see where the bidding ends up at.

    Ad states the car will "fully recharge from empty in 4 hours from a 240V outlet" but doesn't specifically say that an HPC is included in the sale, just "home charger accessories".

    It does include an HPC. And a battery replacement agreement (free new 53 kWh battery after Nov 2015)

    FYI, I did a Make Offer of $40k and it did not instant-decline me! A day later the seller manually declines me, so I had to make another offer... $38k :wink:
    I noticed he's selling a ton of other cars ranging from high end (Audi R8) down to low end (Corolla).

    Seriously? Why would you bother doing that. With the HPC and battery replacement warranty, that car is worth the $62k asking price.

    He put up a "Make Offer", so why not? If it was such a great deal, it would've been gone by now.

    Why not? Because it's an obvious lowball offer and that can be insulting - and this is probably not the best place to advertise a lowball offer on a Roadster.

    It is, indeed, a very fair price - especially with the battery replacement agreement. A Signature is also more likely to have some extra collector's value someday. The buyer's marker for a Roadster is not exactly a large one, but when a serious buyer comes along, the value of this car will be evident.

    You don't seem like a serious buyer, but if you are, you should consider a reasonable offer and not waste anyone's time.

    For some reason, I think some warranties, like the CPO warranty, can't be transferred if the vehicle is sold through a dealer. I wonder if that will be a problem here.

    Warranties can be transferred. When I sold my 1.5 I was able to pass the ESA to the new owner. Still I don't see anything about there being a battery warranty. In any event PLEASE KEEP THIS FRIENDLY:) No need to argue. If the buyer is serious or not he has the right to low ball if he likes. I agree and doubt that there is a reason for him/her to accept below market for such a beautiful, unique and FAST auto.

    I think supersnoop was referring to the "battery replacement agreement", not warranty.

    The "battery replacement agreement" is indeed transferable. It states so very clearly in the agreement itself. The listing on eBay has not yet been updated to include this info.

    How does the battery replacement agreement tie in to the 3.0 upgrade, if at all?

    Oh man! If I hadn't bought #265, Bill would already have my deposit. That is one beautiful car, and that price is incredible. Bill's pictures of him driving it to Yosemite were a lot of the inspiration for me to buy one. Do you mind if I share the link to those pictures, Bill?
