          If you have one you can sell it second hand for more than it costs new but the only catch is you'll be left without a car.

    "If you’re really adventurous, you could probably use the guides to build your own Tesla."

    Just be sure to keep the body panels misaligned and gaps inconsistent for that genuine Tesla factory fit and finish.

    • If you’re really adventurous

      I upgraded my dash unit myself (youtube video etc) so that I can spend more years to wait for a cheaper electric car.

  • Is it true Tesla will come up with a cheaper model under 30k in the next year or so? Edit, just googled, that would be on hold due to semi conducted crisis. Is any ozbargainer waiting for that before switching to electric?

    • +2

      Was that USD 30k? That translates to almost $50k here by the time taxes are added.

      If you can do it now, don't wait for something that will be delayed over and over. For less than $50k you'll get a BYD Atto3 or MG ZS EV. Wait time for both just a few months.

      If you can't swing $45k or so now, what choice do you have? Second hand import Leafs are in the $30k range, but with the non-cooled batteries I would stay well clear of anything Leaf…

      • under 25k usd, so about 32k Aud, + tax may be under 40k. Hopefully after a couple years there will be more electric charging stations and there will be more competitors. I was planning to switch to hybrid toyota corolla for about 30k but decided to go to electric completely if I wait a couple or few more years.

        • +2

          Great decision! A hybrid would just put anther ICE on our roads for over a decade. Keeping what you have now and then going full EV in a few years is the much better option.

          Let's hope these times of shortages pass. So hard to predict.

          Most likely the first EV to get close to $30k brand new will be a BYD though.

          • @team teri: Let's hope so, the amount of money I spend on fuel almost convinced me to go public transport. The problem with hybrid is it doesn't save much fuel if you drive say 100k/h on highway? Although I heard from someone who drove to a regional place, usually probably take a couple of tanks of fuel but took less than 1 tank when they drove a hybrid, not sure how that work.

          • @team teri: There is K23 EV hatchback will be sold in USA for about 30k AUD by the end of this year.

            • +1

              @htc: I was thinking of the Dolphin/EA1

              BYD is ahead in battery technology. I'd be weary of any Chinese import that doesn't use a well known battery supplier. MG gets batteries from CATL, in the same league as BYD.

              • @team teri: I started to do some more research, even Warren Buffet invested in BYD.

              • +1

                @team teri: Nice, just read the article in the link you provided. I am now more excited about Dolphin hitting the market. Keeping my petrol car for now is the best option even though it feels like burning money with petrol.

  • Tesla Service & Repair Documentation

    Has anyone had first hand experience with this documentation?

    Is it useful?
    As in: "could a non-mechanic person use it to achieve successful mods/repairs/service"?

    Asking because some other car sources are cryptic and overly complex, requiring specialized tools and equipment to do virtually anything.
    erWin for VW comes to mind.

    I was keen on Tesla until I read far too much about Musk’s values, recently. Now, they’re close to the bottom of my EV list. Pretty much like Murdoch as a valid news source.

  • Thanks.
