    My delivery is scheduled 7/3 (Tuesday)! They moved it up almost 2 weeks for me when I asked if there were earlier times.

    I have only been contacted by my ISA ( who has been very responsive! ), reading the forums I hear a delivery specialist reaches out...What items were you required to complete before taking delivery? Also what items did you bring to the delivery, below is a list of what I have done and what I am expecting to bring.

    Before
    1. Preapproved for a loan
    2. Sent back updates to the initial ISA E-mail ( Delivery location, Trade-in, 3rd party loan information, .etc )
    3. Picked a delivery date & time ( yay! )
    4. Bound my insurance a few days before the delivery date.
    5. Sent my ISA the new Insurance card & the loan amount and banking information ( again ).
    6. Secured a 3rd party Loan and will be picking the check up a day before delivery.

    Bringing with me
    1. The bank check.
    2. My checkbook? Does the Pro-Forma match exactly what is owed or could this change a little?
    3. Phone with the Tesla App installed.

    I am getting new plates for the Model 3, I am keeping my old car for a few months just encase! How does that work, is that something I need to do before or does Tesla provide temporary plates?

    Any input is appreciated!

    Google Tesla Model 3 delivery checklist.

    About the only thing missing I see is a USB drive with music to test.

    I got 2 days notice. Pick up this afternoon. I'm scrambling. I'm about to call the insurance company. I didn't even figure out financing, so with such a short timeline (I'm leaving town too), I didn't have time to find financing so I'm just gonna pay cash. At least you got a few days. Don't be like me.

    Thanks, ill google around and see if anything jumps out. Most of the checklist seem to be about the car which seems very thorough. Personally I am not to critical of slight imperfections.

    I'd still do a close scan if possible.

    I got 5-10 minutes total to go over the car. It was just enough time to program two key cards and two phones and to set up the mirrors/steering wheel for each driver. Wife and I took turns scanning the car while the other was adjusting their settings.

    We didn't catch everything. Brought it up with Tesla service. We'll see if we get any pushback as the appointment isn't until next week (they're slammed in Service as well).

    That said, my parents got an hour with the car and the rep went over features with them. They were at the big SoCal delivery center though. My local dealer is also the delivery center. They don't have a giant building to properly present the cars like you see in YouTube videos. There were two carports at the edge of the property being used to "show" the cars to the new owners. Between the bright daylight and the shadow the car was in, it was hard to see details.
