Enough for me to say "no thanks." Haha. Honestly, not sure. I am guessing they were about $4-5k too low. I will know for sure when I try to sell it elsewhere. But since I don't know when I am getting the CT, I am waiting until I at least get a VIN assignment before I take it anywhere else to sell. Plus, I really love my M3P. Parting with it will be a very sad day, which only the CT will be able to cure. :)
Don't forget that depending on your state, there may be a positive tax impact trading something in. I've seen a number of $10k tax lines on invoices posted. Dropping that by $2-3 k may put the trasi-in in the ballpark and easier to handle.

Drive in with your old car and away with the new one.

For those not familiar with the way Tesla does business, if you ain't got a VIN, you ain't got anything.

VINs are normally assigned as the car is headed toward a delivery center.

Exactly. I am confident my Cyberbeast is about to be delivered soon.

Loan approved, trade in offer accepted, registration completed. All they need to do is release the VIN and deliver the truck 😍
My trade in offer got hung up on pending until I went into the Tesla dealer in person and they sent a request to the trade in department. I had an offer pretty quickly after. It was really low but I expected that with the aftermarket parts on mine. All steps in the app have been complete up to schedule delivery for a while now. I would be very surprised to see anyone get a Cyberbeast any time soon. Hope it works out for you though.

No trade in for me, but my app on the Cybertruck screen added a bunch of tutorial videos last night, but it is now removed. I thought I was close to delivery :(
Oh man, Tesla. That’s cold!! 😂

While I'll skip the troll thing, misdirection is an issue here.

Fair market value (FMV) is the price a product would sell for on the open market

You will NEVER get FMV when you trade in a car. So it is pretty irrelevant. You will just about always get more in private sale, where FMV applies.
Exactly! And you won't get 90% of FMV on a trade-in because wholesale prices are WAY less than 90% of FMV. I would guess that wholesale is roughly 60% of FMV.

I understand the badges are laser etched into the SS.

Is there an option to not have the badging?
The option would be to not buy the foundation series, unfortunately. I liked the cleaner look of no external branding gimmicks aside from the shape/design language of the vehicle.

To each their own, I just thought it looked kind of cheap. I'd rather not be on the truck.

Tesla just updated my trade-in offer asking me to upload my model 3 title.

I think it’s time.

Cyberbeast ordered on Dec 9th. California.
When did you reserve it and which Cybertruck did you order?
