I leased a Nissan LEAF 2 years ago and quickly realized I could never go back to an ICE after driving electric. I never would have considered an electric car had it not been for the "Free LEAF" deal so I have Nissan and the GA tax rebate to thank for converting me! My lease is up next week and even though Nissan offered me an additional $5k incentive to buy the car ($10,600) I had always wanted the Tesla. I agonized over the decision the last 2 months but yesterday I found a great P85 CPO and I pulled the trigger. Car is in San Francisco so now I have to wait a few weeks for it to ship to Atlanta
In the meantime, I would love to hear from some other CPO owners on things that I should do to prepare for delivery. What should I pay attention to when inspecting the car? Any advice or things you would have done differently when picking up your car?
For charging I am already setup with a Clipper Creek 40A charger that I think I can use on the Tesla with a simple adapter. My car does have twin charging but don't think I will go for a HPWC install. The supercharger at Atlantic Station is only 10 miles from me so I feel like that is a backup if for some reason I need to quickly get some more juice. After driving a LEAF for 2 years I am not going to know what to do with 265 miles of range!
My car has the 21" wheels but would have preferred the 19's for more range, tire cost, etc. Anybody downgraded to 19's? Thoughts on doing this?
I downloaded the owners manual and will start reading that. Any other resources to read while I wait on the car other than TMC
