CPO Model S January Timeline

I was advised today that my car is on a truck now with arrival to the SC on Saturday. Delivery is scheduled for Tuesday. That will be 36 days from order to delivery. There are 3 items listed on the inspection form that are listed as "due bill" due to parts being back ordered. I am glad they went ahead and now will just have to go back at some point to get them installed, with the chance of a fun loaner.

Took delivery today; Car isn't perfect but overall great shape for a 42k miles car.
Some issues noted:
  • One piece of trim behind the rear driver side window is not sitting too flush.
  • Minor rock chips, nothing significant, only one wheel had about 3 chips others seemed nearly perfect.
  • Fog light was scratched, asked to be added to Due bill.
  • At highway noise there seems to be some rattling coming from the driver side dashboard, Have an appointment this Friday to drive with a tech and show them the noise.
  • They did not install the 4G LTE upgrade that I asked them to do, however now that I am using 3G, not sure how much I want it anymore.. will drive it a little and decide.
  • Tires have a few thousand miles left in them, not more than that, was kind of hoping to have new tires.
  • Some squeaking from windows / handles when the doors are shut.. I am not sure how common that is.
The car itself is amazing, drives like a bullet and I got the sense from Tesla that they will fix anything that is not meeting my satisfaction.

New to the forum. Am intently monitoring the various websites in search of a P85(D) CPO car. Actually missed two great lease returns this week by minutes. Hit “Submit” on the $1K deposit only to get an error message. Refreshed the page and the car disappeared. :( No matter, another suitable one will come soon I’m sure.
I’m very interested in seeing others report out on condition of the car at delivery like you have @aromasca. Condition of the paint and seats are my top concerns. Also, what will they agree to fix from your punch list? Thanks I’m advance! Looking forward to being an MS owner.
 
I put a deposit down on a 2013 MS on 01/25. Have been doing additional research online regarding the CPO process and am now terrified. Has anyone walked away from a CPO delivery after seeing their vehicle in less than acceptable condition? I've been experiencing the same lack of communication and follow through from my rep.
