    3 LR:
    - 54,000 km
    - May 2018 build

    what I’m worried about is the out of warranty cost after I get to 80,000 km on it ?

    also May was 5-7 months after they started making model 3s
    I wonder what the build quality is like

    LR RWD or LR AWD?

    Assuming if there's no incentives for used or new EV (which is likely for a new EV), I would take the LR, even better if it's LR AWD. Since you live in Vancouver, perhaps the colder climate will be more suitable for a longer range battery, as battery use for EV cars in cold climates can be alot.

    Without knowing the price it’s hard to give any meaningful feedback.

    6 months ago this was my decision


    I passed up a 2017 Red LR RWD for $37,500 in San Fran with black interior and aero's for my white (now blue) 2019 SR+ with white interior and 19's.


    I regret nothing... except a kicker lol

    For build quality, you'll need to go look at it. After all, no one would buy a car over the Internet:)
