    Hi all,

    I’m a brand new member and I’m ready to pull the trigger on a facelift Model S. How does the price sound on this one?

    2016 Model S 75D
    19k miles
    Enhances Autopilot
    Panoramic roof
    Alcantara headliner
    Asking price: $67.5k

    Not sure if this includes the entire premium upgrades package or if those options were individually sold in late 2016 models.

    Sounds high. An easy way to do the math is reprice the car today and then see how much per mile they sre discounting. You'll have to know the answer to the premium upgrades question. Some things like alcantera, free mobile data and transferable free supercharging you can't get new any more.

    Be sure to factor the $7500 tax credit if you are eligible.

    Not really...

    Tesla sold a similarly equipped vehicle (2017 model year) for $63K and another (2016) for $64K.

    I was at the Westmont service center last week when the owners of that MS said they traded it in for a new cayenne. I would ask the service center for history on it

    Normally the SC won't provide that info, let alone a large majority of owners don't actually take the vehicle(s) in unless there is an issue.

    All the Tesla sold cars will be priced equally high. I assumed when the question was asked about a "good deal" it was relative to a private sale.

    What I'm indicating by my response, is that the dealership is selling the vehicle for more than what Tesla would. The dealership and Tesla should be right in line with one another. Private party should be less than both.

    Another consideration is the 75D got a lot faster about a year ago, ones delivered before that will be slower and it should reflect in price.
    The 75d of the last year has nearly the performance and range of a P85 and they standardized a lot of equipment that used to be extra.

    Dealer should be less than Tesla due to no extended warranty.

    I doubt this car has EAP. My 2016 S 75 VIN 150842 doesn’t and this car’s VIN is 146700.

    The original car mentioned likely has hardware for EAP if it is advertised with it. VIN assignment is made before production so not always indicicative of assembly line feature upgrades.

    Also it won't have the new mystery drive unit upgrades, but it will be uncorked or uncorkable, i.e. be new performance eligible.

    Is there an easy way to see if this car is eligible for the performance upgrade or if it already has it?

    Brand new - priced with similar options is $92k. Even with the $7.5k tax credit, the difference is significant enough to look for a pre-owned post facelift model.

    Some, like retirees, get little benefit from the tax credit. It will be intetesting next year when that is less of an option.

    Nobody knows - a mystery. The DU00 and DU01 designation from mid June 2017 could be a redesign for cost savings, but it would be more interesting if it were some preplanned inverter uncorking 2 for the S and X that was preplanned to coincide with the Model 3 Performance release.

    I got a new inventory model with practically no miles for 72k after accounting for the tax credit

    This. A good deal. There should be more inventory cars floating around now that Tesla is done sandbagging the federal tax credit.

    I don't see that. Can you show us your math?
    With the new car you also get the upgraded MCU and autopilot 2.5
