Hi Guys,

Forgive me if this thread has been done before I couldn't find anything in the first 3 pages on this.

I'm picking up my model 3 LR from park royal tomorrow morning. Just wondering what kind of things I should look out for in terms of the car and the process?

Any common faults in the car I need to look out for? (I know panel gaps can be an issue)
Any specific things I should ask about when it comes to the hand off?
I know Tesla does things its own way but does contactless really mean I won't have anyone showing me my car properly?

Not sure how you'd do so (not what to do about it if it is a problem), but might be worth checking that it's not suffering from the ongoing won't-wake-up-from-the-app bug...

Car won't wake from app

Good luck with the collection anyway, hope all's well!

No realistically possible to actually test since you need the car to be fully asleep. It's certainly worth asking the question of the Tesla staff though.

I believe there is now enough evidence to state, with a degree of confidence, that it's only cars that have the Telefonica/Movistar eSIM fitted that seem to have this problem with the app. That was pretty much confirmed to me this morning by Tesla (see the other thread). It should be possible to determine which of the two eSIMs are installed, as it seems the adverts in some apps in the car are a giveaway; if they are in Dutch then the car doesn't have the Telefonica SIM, if they are in Spanish then it does.
