    Hi,

    I'm looking into purchasing a private sale M3. I'd like to get it inspected prior to buying. I found a mobile inspector, but I'm wondering if there is a Tesla certified mobile inspector I should be asking to look at the car as opposed to someone who covers all kinds of cars.

    This is in socal.

    Any advice?

    Anyone? I tried Buena Park Tesla and got voicemail, which doesn't give me a ton of confidence when you can't even reach a rep. They have two stars on Yelp, which is also a bit scary.

    I would just use this or one of the many delivery inspection checklists (ANOTHER (Delivery Checklist))

    There isn't a whole lot of mechanical issues that can go wrong compared to an ICE vehicle so as long as it is still under warranty any of those issues can be handled by Tesla Service Center.

    I had Tesla do a pre purchase inspection years ago before I picked up S85D from a private seller.
