Went to check out this turp site. 230 dollars a day for a Model X. Thats not too horible I guess. But then I went through the listings and found a 2015 WRX and thought to myself there was no way they would have a manual car on there.....welll its an automatic which I didnt even know was a thing. Sad

Update

The Q5 is going in for service today (of course) to have recall work done. Hopefully they tag down the gas smell at the same time. Otherwise I'm going to be grumpy. Still no rentals there but it's only been up for a few days. Still, I'm going to be questioning that decision until I get a few rentals. In hindsight, the Maserati was probably the better choice. I might have had all my math on the Q5 right except for how many people would be interested in renting it. The Tesla is without a doubt a desirable car as would be anything with a Maserati badge. The Q5 isn't an "I'm going to rent something cool for vacation" car and I should have considered that more before buying it. Oh well. If I have to sell it I have to sell it. It's a learning process.

The Tesla was returned to LAX's valet lot yesterday. Audi offered me a loaner or an Uber and I opted for the Uber to get a free ride to LAX to pick up the Tesla but I woke up to another booking on the Tesla for the next three days. So no free but the car is rented out so who cares.

Updating the month's net totals on the S:

Net income (after Turo fees) is $1230 since the beginning of the month. This might seem lower than previous estimates I gave but that's because I cancelled a trip that was booked for 2 weeks. The trip was booked before I realized I priced the car too cheap and my net earnings for 2 weeks rented was $600. Plus the dude was going to take the car up the coast to San Francisco and was going to put 1500 miles on it. Compare that two weeks of income at $600 to the $300 I'm getting for just the next three days and it was a no-brainer to cancel that trip. It was a dick move though and I feel bad.

So basically where we stand right now is the Tesla has covered payment and insurance for the month and with no other rentals this month I could drive it and pocket a few hundred dollars for the pleasure. I hope I can say the same about the Q5 in a few weeks.

I still think you should have bought a 360 Modena.

Come on Mike.

He didn't buy from an Audi dealer, I doubt they have that kind of policy from where he got it. But maybe?

No, California dealers even make you sign a piece of paper stating that there is no cooling off period.

Iím confused how this is possible. If there are 400,000 model 3 reservations, and you just placed an order..... how are you ahead of every person?

I havenít made a thread yet but I will soon. All I can say is that time line is not correct

4-6 weeks once you get a VIN number is a rough estimate or slightly longer

And seeing as this is for a model 3 for you and they have had a very slow start to production I would expect it to be longer than they say. Vs a more established model line. (S or X)
