Keeping H1B lottery results aside, I have about 20 months in the US.

Current situation: Haven't heard back for H1. Have one more chance left next year.

Need to buy a car. What would you suggest?

Tesla model 3: 41k
A4 2018 CPO: 31k

I'm thinking of resale value by next year
Tesla model3 : 30k
Audi A4: 15k

      How difficult would it be to sell financed Model 3?
      I'm financing via credit union

      Same as any other financed car. You and buyer meet at credit union, sign docs and credit union releases interest when loan satisfied. Some buyers might not like the extra hassles, but most won't care.

    Neither. Buy some beater for a couple grand.

    Model 3s have a lot of lemons and you’re likely to find one

      Meaning buyer beware. You might get one with a roof that cracks, leaky trunk, bad paint, panel gaps, touchscreen issues, etc.

      Audi is in a different category. Tesla is a car from a startup company with poor quality control, and if you need spare parts after a small accident you might be waiting 1-12 months bc they don’t have spare parts. Get the Audi.

      Lmao!
      Financially it doesn't make sense to buy Audi. It doesn't even have blind spot detection at this price.

    Model 3 hands down if you have a place to charge at home at night. If you do not have a place to charge it is much more up in the air.
    Given your timeline I might suggest a lease if you are able to with your status at which point a new A4 may be your best deal.

      Can't charge at home. But can charge at work for free.
      Lease isn't an option since most of the dealers dont do 20 month lease.
      2 year or 3 year lease would mean I have to pay for that time period irrespective of me using the car or not. One dealer literally said "You can pay the remaining periods amount upfront and return the vehicle whenever you want" lmao!🤣

    Used Japanese cars are best for the beat up. They still run however bad they are beat up or buy a Volvo with higher number odometer for less $$
