    I think it may be part of the interior? I tried a pry bar, needle nose pliers, pick tool, etc. I was able to lift the gasket and even part of the door panel but those threads are definitely stuck on something or attached somewhere. I ended up basically pulling each hair until it broke off so now it looks like a buzz cut lol. No one would notice but me at this point but I wanted to post in case someone else had this and the Tesla guy tells them it's just something you can pull out when you get home, like they told me.
    Hope everyone gets their cars soon! Good luck!

    Received this text tonight:

    “Tesla Update - Your Model 3 will be exiting the factory and heading to Santa Barbara in the next few days. Please log in to tesla.com/teslaaccount and complete all outstanding tasks within the next 48 hours. We will update you when it is time to schedule your delivery appointment.”

    Picked up my car today as well! Overall the panel gaps and paint looked good. The jambs and bottoms of the insides of the doors have good coverage too. Good steering wheel alignment. No issues with any of the glass.

    I did find a few somewhat deep scratches (fingernail will catch them) and one part of the driver door on the bottom outside edge has chips, like it was opened into something. I’m sure these happened after the car rolled off the line, which is a shame. I dont think I’ll be letting it go to the Tesla body shop for fear of other damage to the otherwise good car, and I wouldn’t want a respray of the door anyway. I’m going to see if they’ll comp me a touch up kit, and I’ll fill and buff them myself (I have a DA polisher).

    Received a text saying my P3D would be exiting the factory soon and within 24 hours and complete the tasks. I uploaded my insurance but don’t see anything else to do and no VIN to get my credit union loan going. Now what???

    Yeah, my guy said they are getting another 150 on Monday and told me not to worry even though I have gotten no texts or have no vin yet, no word on the make / model break down but you have to assume a majority of them are M3's.

    The delivery agent told me that my M3 would arrive in Littleton on Monday.

    All I got to do now is coordinate payment. The only problem is; I had them correct my MVPA and now the electronic payment information has disappeared from the website. I guess I'll call support again. At least they were very nice and helpful yesterday.

    I took them a check from my CU, and handed it to them after I had inspected the vehicle and accepted it.

    I got the same text on Monday 9/16 nothing has changed on my account and I haven't heard anything from them since. When I contacted Tesla I was told I just have to wait.

    Did you have to wait for the ACH to clear before taking delivery?

    I got a text this morning with a delivery appointment in SF on Monday afternoon. Unfortunately the time won't work for me so I'm trying to call to reschedule, but nobody's answering and the voicemail box is full. Not really surprising - I'm guessing they're slammed right now.

    Finally, delivery set for the 24th, ordered on 7/19 modified on 8/15 and I got a text with a link to set the delivery appointment and requesting f9nal payment.

    All I need to do now is ask about the two years of free supercharger
