    I will receive my Signature Model X next week and wanted to prepare for the delivery process, so I created the attached checklist based on Nick Howe's Model S list. I know there are probably errors and omissions in the list, so please help improve it.

    Here are additional Model X specific items from my list created after taking delivery. Some may be repetitive from Nick's list, but I'd rather include them here.

    - Check that 2nd row safety plates at the floor leave no gaps or holes during the entire forward and backward movement of the seats.
    - Check all 2nd row seats for missing seat anchor point covers.
    - Check both sides of each 2nd row seat for loose trim.
    - Check under the carpet mats at the 2nd row for level seams on the floor. Rock the floor edges front to back to check for wobble of each of the three sections.
    - Check that 3rd row seats fold down. Headrest first and the seat back follows.
    - Check that the 3rd row seats can release and be restored to their upright locked position.
    - Check the 3rd row seat backs where they meet in the middle. Is the leather stitched trim the same size on each side?
    - Check from the trunk that the bottom of the rear seat carpet back is not bent and binding when raised. Pull trunk load floor firmly towards the rear of the vehicle to increase the gap.
    - Check tie downs in the trunk that they are lying flat against the carpet and not sticking up.
    - Stop the Falcon Wing Door in mid travel using the key fob to check for seal damage or misplaced wiring.
    - Check if the driver and passenger door always open without having to pry the door loose with fingers.
    - Let the Model X time out with doors open. Check if the driver and passenger door close and latch.
    - Check both Falcon Wing Door sills for dents and scratches.
    - Double check all wheels for edge damage.
    - Check hidden paint edges at the B pillars for paint chips next to the roof glass.
    - Check for Parcel Shelf to be installed with rear seats down (included for Signature vehicles)
    - With the hatch open, check the seal space between the paint and plastic.
    - With the hatch open, Check that upper hatch seals are closed with no paint or a little paint showing. Easy to correct on the spot.
    - Check the rear headrests for scratches on the plastic back while the headrest is down before seat lowering.
    - Check the 2nd row seat posts for scratches and carpet alignment at the base.
    - Check leather seats for pucker (hills). Creases on the edges are normal for this quality of leather.
    - Check windshield in direct sunlight for any sparkles caused by sand hitting the windshield during transport.
    - Check paint carefully for specks of clear coat that may affect the application of clear bra wrap. More frequent on horizontal surfaces (hood).
    - Check under the carpet cover in the rear trunk if the air tubes are fully positioned across the width of the trunk and did not slide together in shipment.
    - Check top center roof glass outside for excessive height differences or bending.
    - Check rear hatch when closed for equal sized gaps on both sides. Now, check the taillight gaps if they are of similar spacing on each side.
    - Check rear hatch top alignment with Falcon Wing Doors. Most important is that all chrome trim aligns around the entire vehicle.
    - Check under outside rear view mirrors for excessive clear glue.
    - Check at the right and left bottom corner of the windshield for loose plastic trim that has pulled away from painted B pillar.
    - Check during a test drive at slow speed that a raise of the cruise control doesn't cause the vehicle to engage at low speed and speed up gradually.

    I created a Google Docs document for this that anybody with this link can edit. The formatting got messed up a bit during the transfer. Tesla Model X Checklist.pdf - Google Docs

    This document is (so far) the combination of the work of Nick Howe, FarmerDave and Mark Z. Please don't share it outside TMC.

    Let's see how this goes, I may need to switch it to "suggestions only" if a Wikipedia-style approach doesn't work.

    I don't think Tesla makes the 6-50 adapter for the Mobile Connector anymore so you can remove that.

    Thanks! To reiterate - everybody is welcome to update this document (please don't deface it). If you're not sure about something, you could just strike something out with a comment instead of deleting it outright. Or you could go to "Add Comment".

    I thought I read the procedure to calibrate was to hold button down 10 seconds after the window is down and 10 seconds after the window is back up? Anyone else recall reading that here or on FaceBook? I tried searches in the FB group and using TMC search but couldn't find it.

    I don't want to add this to the checklist, but rather for those that have taken delivery, please take a look at the "A pillar" on both sides from the front of the Model X. Has Tesla corrected the visual gap between the windshield border and the Alcantara material inside next to the windshield? Below is a link to my post in the windshield sun glare topic that got us looking at the "channel" where a sunshade might fit. You will need a bright flashlight to easily check this. More details here:

    I agree when you purchase a $150k car you expect for it to be delivered with little to no defects but I doubt there are very few who have ordered a Model X who will cancel their orders based on what they have read on these forums. On the other hand we will use what others have reported to make sure we find the majority of the defects before we leave the service center. The car I currently have is a Jaguar XJ Series. It wasn't $150 but with taxes it was almost $100k. When I picked it up from the dealer it was perfect and I have not had any issues with it. I was hoping my experience would be seminar with the Tesla.

    I have temporarily lost most of the vision in one eye and don't feel comfortable in doing the inspection on my own. I am scheduled to get my car in the next ten days. We are new to the Space Coast area and don't know too many people around here. I have reached out to another forum member who lives about 30 miles from me who has volunteered to help out. I only know him from the forum.

    I wish they would add another SC in this part of Florida. The closest SC in on the opposite side of Orlando and well over an hour away, about 65 miles. The next closest SC is in Palm Beach county which is about 90 miles away. Hopefully there are not that many issues as it is a long drive to either center.
