    hello all.

    I took delivery of my model 3 on Saturday and it is my first Tesla and electric car.

    I’ve noticed several noises coming from the car.

    When it is charging it makes noises that I’m assuming are normal.

    When I open the door I hear somewhat of a clunking noise that I’m assuming is normal but it would be nice to know what it is.

    I also notice a somewhat loud noise when changing from reverse to drive. Is this just normal drivetrain noise?
