Delivery checklist

Hi,

Does anyone have a good exhaustive checklist of the issues I should be looking out for when I pick up my (first) MY next week? I will be driving a long distance and really hoping that I get lucky with build quality.

Apologies as I'm sure this has been asked before -- I tried to use the search function but it has been misbehaving for me the last couple of weeks.

Check all lights, inside and out.
Check body panel alignment.
Check interior, including headliner, for fitment.
Slide front seats forward/back, up down.
Open/close all windows.
Open/close frunk, trunk hatch.
IMPORTANT: Have them confirm wheel lug nut torque: Mine were <70lb/ft, should be almost double that, 129 lb/ft.
Tires at 42psi.
 
From what I've researched, here's my checklist:

Panel gaps
Trim gaps/scratches
Tail light fitment
Headlight fitment
Door handles (check if they work)
Lift gate (open/close)
Frunk (open/close)
Wheels (check for scratches)
Lug nuts (check torque)
Tires (check PSI)
Charging cable
Backseat buttons (check if working)
Pillars (check fitment)
USB-C ports
Center console (check for scratches)
Screen (check for damage)
Front seat adjustments
Windows (up/down, check for damage)
Floor mats
Wireless charging
Headliner
Windshield (check for damage)
Steering wheel
Glove box (open/close)
Cameras (backup, side)
Sound system
Side mirrors (check if they fold)
Headlights (check all lights if working)
Tail lights (check all lights if working)
Wipers
Charging (check if it works)

I probably missed some so feel free to add more..
