Used panels from Tesla (Should I?)

I've been offered a system from Tesla. It's a 10.4kW system consisting of 40x REC 260 panels. The panels are being sold as repurposed, but do have a 20 year warranty. The price is amazing at $13000 before tax incentives. I don't really care for dark blue/white panels, but it's a pretty good deal.

What do you think? Anything I should be aware of? Is it bad to go with 260W panels?

Thanks

The most expensive part of the solar panel is the racking installation and the electrical. Does $13000 include installation and inverter? If so, you are getting solar panels for free. I would go with it. Even if you have to replace some of the equipment later, it is still a very good deal.
