    I consider myself a seasoned Tesla owner. I'm in my 6th year of owning Model S. I've driven the Roadster, Model X, and Model 3 thanks to a number of friends.

    We went to take delivery of our Model 3 today. It was delayed so we have to reschedule for another time, but they did give a tiny little 3.

    I spent at least 5 minutes trying to figure out. How do you open the thing without destroying the paper and plastic wrapper entirely?

    Tried that. Seemed like it didn't want to go without significant forcing/pressure.

    Don't ask me how but I got two. The first one was impossible to slide out while the second one slid out almost effortlessly. For the first one, I had to rip the packaging unfortunately.

    Sounds like a panel gap issue :)
