Tesla Trade in offer for my Model Y LR

My EDD for my Model X Plaid is only in October but I wanted to get a quote on my trade in (2021 Model Y LR AWD, 24k miles) to see if they would be reasonable. I was told that they usually offer low $50k range for similar cars.. Got my trade in offer earlier today and they are offering over $59k for it.. My base price when I ordered was $50490 and $57k after options and sales tax.. I hope that there won't be a sudden drop in value before I'll take delivery of the Model X Plaid.. I'll try to not drive too many miles but that may be difficult..
At that offer, I won't consider selling it privately.. That offer is very fair.. Very surprised by it.. Hope that it holds.. Of course, value will be reduced as I add miles.. I understand that.
I keep my fingers crossed that I can take delivery of the MX Plaid well before October..

That's great to hear, thank you! I have a 2022 MYLR that my wife and I....dislike, thus our shift to the MX Plaid (also October). Surprised (happily) that Tesla offered so much, I think that is very reasonable especially after the trade-in tax credit (if that applies in your state). Thanks for sharing!

If you don't mind me asking, what do you dislike about the Y?
 
You are probably the 20th person whose post I have seen upgrading from a Y to a X. Looks like the Y is a gateway drug to the X.
It indeed is.. I used to be a NHRA licensed drag racer with a low 9 second Corvette.. Being able to run 9's with a daily driver on stock tires is insanity.. That's what I want.. The X is a better and faster Model Y..

I love my MY but I want even more power. 3rd row of seats with actual space for adults is also another reason .

I remember the drag racing days. We used to go to the Winter Nationals in Pomona in SoCal. Sorry to see the place close after 70 years. I also remember going to the Baylands Raceway drag strip close to where the Tesla Factory is now in Fremont. So amazing to see SUVs from the factory running 9 second quarters that would have blown away most of the competition at Baylands.

I mostly drag raced from 2003 to 2008 and back then, it was unthinkable to have a vehicle that can go that fast and that you can drive it across the country without any changes to it...

This was my race car:

10 second run with a smaller engine


9 second run with a bigger engine


I haven't been to the drag strip since 2009..

I think the X is faster, but I think the Y is a better built car!
The MX is a fairly complex car compared to the MY. My Model Y had no build quality issues and I have had zero technical issues with it in 24500 miles.
The MX has so much tech, especially the falcon wing doors that the potential for issues is so much higher than on the Model Y.
 
If you don't mind me asking, what do you dislike about the Y?
Purely personal, it rides like a pile of bricks with wheels; the suspension is borderline-uncomfortable. No core issues around reliablity or fit & finish, it just feels like a bloated Model 3 with a noticeably-stiffer ride.
Wife & I take our Model 3 when we can, so can't wait to get the X to address the ride quality

Thanks. When my lease was coming up on my last X, I drove a Y and also found the suspension stiff and borderline harsh. I went home and ordered a replacement X. And now a year later I may be picking up the replacement X this week.

I do have the 19" Gemini wheels which have much better ride quality than the 20".. Which wheels do you have on the MY?
