Rather than constantly checking the source code you can use this bookmarklet to see if you have a VIN or not....

javascript:var%20teslaVin=Tesla.ProductF.Data.Insurance.vin;if(teslaVin)%7Balert(teslaVin)%7Delse%7Balert('No%20VIN%20yet')%7D;

Bonus is that it works on mobile devices, like iOS, that don’t support view-source.

Very cool of you to do this.

Mods should sticky this, TBH.

Edit: I just "reported" the OP. Said it was extremely helpful for *anyone* that had ordered a new Tesla, and should really be stickied. Hope I don't get yelled at for not using the "report" function correctly. :)

Anyone (not just Model 3 orders) that orders a new Tesla would find this extremely valuable since Tesla doesn't show the VIN number to the buyer in a timely manner.

I'm not sure people realize exactly how cool this is, really.

If not made a sticky itself, it should at least be included in one of the "useful links" stickies.
