Used Tesla Inspector in Southern California?

Found a used Model S I like at a local dealership (not tesla). No extended warranty, so would like to get it inspected prior to purchase. Anyone know who in the Orange County area could do something like this?

I doubt if I took it to the Tesla in Costa Mesa they would give two shits about me.
Here's what I would do; it'll cost you $250.

Go to your local Tesla Service Center. Speak with the Service Concierge (= front desk) and explain your situation.
Tell them that you'd like an experienced Service Technician to have a look at the car in their free time, and that there's $200 in it for them.

Hand the Service Concierge 1) your phone number on a piece of paper, and 2) a $50.
