    Cheers for that info, I missed the auction and wanted to know the result.
    The photos of the P100D made it look near-perfect. It certainly looked an easier fix than my car. Did it definitely have battery and rear gear damage? Snap any photos?

    Outer case battery damage and Tesla don’t offer a fix for that part so it’s written off. It must be going overseas once fixed to pay that price.

    Hey, I did one and took it overseas. I haven't made out like a bandit. With a bu66ered battery case it wouldn't be a good buy for me either. We do have repair standards out here y'know. Over your side of the ditch there's no one skilled enough to fix things so they just class 'em all as unrepairable :p
    (Full disclosure, I got my '16 repaired in Ozzie before shipping it over)

    So, no photos then?

    Do you know the most common phrase in NZ?
    'Yeah... Nah' :)

    Has anyone had a look at the X which is coming up in Melbourne Tuesday? Any intel on battery and motors?

    I was going to have a go on the X, but I'm sure it will also go off on the crazy price range...

    I thought that was a bit high for a stat once you add the 12% + fee on top.

    I wonder if the liftgate system in the X is compatible with the S... I'd like to source a genuine of of those for my S when I get it.

    There is a white X 90D stat writeoff coming up for auction this week. I have a lot of the parts to repair the front end if thats the way whoever purchases it chooses to go..

    Cancel that, there's a dead S75 coming up in Vic that should provide the panels I need to fix my S60D and the drivetrain for my re-power. It looks perfect for me so unless anyone desperately needs it please be kind :)

    So, if you put the motor from an S75 into an S60D, then assuming it fits ok, your S60D is going to have a lot more power given that the single rear motors are bigger than the duel rear motors; it'd be like a P60D :D

    That's not what I'd thought of. The bits I want for the 60D are panels and suspension. The motor and battery is for a campervan. I didn't know the single motors were still the bigger ones, I thought they were just the same as the rear one from a D after the facelift. Interesting. My parents don't need a big motor in their campervan :D

    off topic but i thought the best place to ask.
    If I got a 6 seat x can it be changed to a 7 seat.
    I have a 5 seat prado and the extra back seat just bolted in. Mod plate was needed but could be done.

    Probably not really. There's bound to have been discussion of this within the 'X'forums. If not then start your own thread either within 'X'or within Australia & NZ:
