    Would administrative costs include refurbishing Tesla for CPO, DU replacements and ranger service?

    Where are you getting this from, Tesla's Q3/10k financials?

    This basically covers everything from PR, HR, Product specialists, and all corporate spending (Corporate payroll). I would imagine that they earmark all the referral payouts through this. The CPO program is self sustaining so I wouldn't imagine that it is included in this (Not sure though). Hope this helps.

    CPO, unlikely.

    DU refurb, no. That comes out of warranty reserves.

    Ranger service, yes. As well as the costs to run the service centers, stores, and all non-R&D payroll.
