    I built a resource for preparing for, buying, and taking delivery of a Model 3. It's as comprehensive as possible, consolidating every resource I could find into one page. I plan to use this as my checklist when I take delivery in (hopefully) less than a month.

    It's organized a bit like an airplane pre-flight checklist, working outside-to-inside, minimizing the number of times you're jumping in and out of the car.

    Is there something missing? Feel free to fork and add, or make a suggestion here and I'll be sure to add it.

    Great list. I understand the paint can be a bit subjective, but I feel like, in the ideal world, the rest of the list should be covered by a pre-purchase dealer checklist.

    Great resource; much more comprehensive than pdf lists available when I took delivery in April. However, they were very helpful. One minor thing to add is to check the mirrors on the visor. A few weeks after delivery when first using visor mirror on passenger side; the mirror was found to have multiple cracks; fortunately held in place by the protective film. Took it to service center and since the visor was on back-order they put in a request for mobile service to repair. About a month later the visor was available and mobile service replaced at my home in about 15 minutes..

    One question; your list includes "Emergency Pack" in the frunk. Is this something new that Tesla is providing; or was it something you special ordered? If it isn't a new item; guess I should check with Service on why I didn't receive one.

    Thanks
