    The car looks good and the price is very fair. I also bought mine through Yahoo motors. The car should have an extra year warranty as I think the first several hundred had a 4th year added to compensate for the delays. I would check the ideal miles after a STD charge and make sure you see 175-185. If not I would make the sale contingent on a servicing. Good luck
     
  3. 08's have a 50k warranty as well I think

    Neb sold his 08 with 6k miles for $66k so it's about right for a dealer. I think the best used roadster deals will come from owners in Colorado like Neb where they possibly got a 38% discount ($42k tax credit if they pay that much anyways) so they can sell below the market price and come out almost even. Maybe you can negotiate with Webb to get a bit more of a discount because of the mileage - but definitely check the tire tread and battery -good luck!

    Thanks - hope Thanksgiving was good to everyone, and appreciate the info on sig warranty, battery check, CO deals and the price drop on #66.

    Gonna get a first look at the model s at a weekend event - kind of wrestling with waiting again given all the advances there:confused:, but a used roadster near vfx's price target still feels warm & fuzzy.

    As an owner I hope resale prices remain high and get higher as the last new cars are gone.

    Just sayin'...

    If only I could swing it. Sig green with microfibre would suit me well. Plus in my home town. Oh well...

    Didn't mean to put you on the spot - just like the price point for the miles... never had a whiff until now.

    Since electric motors are good for millions of miles the the miles on a Roadster should not matter expect for visible wear like carpets and rock chips.

    Do you really think that this one is only worth 48K? Why? I haven't heard of any trading for less than mid-60's. What am I missing?

    Thx.

    VFX may have meant to be stating the mileage limit on the warranty.
