    To start a discussion:
    1) What do you think has caused the issue?
    2) What should Tesla do in this case?
    3) What should the buyer do in this case? What would you do?
    4) What should Tesla do to prevent this happening again?
    5) Can we support the buyer in any way?
    6) Will you be using the P.D.I. checklist upon delivery of your Model 3? I will.

    1) A void in the original sheet of aluminum, perhaps the end of the roll.....or, the roll of aluminum had a thin spot and this thin area gave way when the part was formed.
    2) I would wait for the engineers report from a technical point of view. From a customer satisfaction point of view, I would replace the vehicle with a new one and use the current damaged vehicle as a teaching point along the supply, production and delivery chain. FWIW, I factory ordered a (Cartier Designer Series) Lincoln Town Car in the spring of 1986. The delivery was delayed for "insert excuse here". Years later, I came to find out that a mishap had taken place and it was corrected at the factory level. Also, for a "top of the line" Ford product, it was delivered with misaligned trim and other cosmetic issues.......
    3) I would not be a PITA, BUT, I would be insisting on a new vehicle.
    4) Review the whole chain of events (much like cockpit resource management in aviation) with the aim of not pining blame on one particular individual, but with improving the systemic issues that obviously are present in the QC side of Tesla.
    5) Unknown other than moral support.
    6) Yes, I will use a PDI checklist and I shall inform Tesla of same prior to me showing up to take delivery..

    My checklist is simplified a bit

    1. install HPWC, connect to rooftop solar panels, and check for proper functioning
    2. show me how to energize the car and I'm outta there

    Dont expect to supercharge when you take delivery:
    1) Car will already be charged up
    2) Superchargers at the Service centers are often full/busy for cars being serviced
    3) The deliveries may not take place at locations with SCs
    4) They're looking to do speedy deliveries from what we've heard so they want you in and out and enjoying :)

    Thank you for making this checklist available to us! It will definitely come in handy for my delivery.
    As a Tesla first time car owner, and in general not a car expert, can someone help how to properly identify the following:

    • "Correct battery size". Where can I see this?
    • "Correct wheels". I ordered the 19" sport wheels. How do I check I'll have them on?
    Thanks!

    First production cars only have one battery size, so you’ll have it ;)

    To be safe your range at 100% charge level will be ~310 miles.

    As for wheels. A silver finish is on the sport wheels and the standard 18” wheels will have a dark aero cover. Here are the 19s...

    DUH silly me. Of course that first production only has the large battery size!
    I see regarding the wheels. Thank you!

    Sidebar question: looking at the excellent picture of your wheel and brake rotor, I have to ask if the rotors on the Tesla Model 3 resist rust flash like the rotors on the Chevy Volt?

    I haven’t seen any rust flash on them. To be honest I haven’t seen brake dust yet either ;)

    Some additions I gleaned from other posters, the owner's manual, and other parts of the forum:

    • Trunk easily closed with one hand? Frunk?
    • Tutorial on how to use Valet mode, and why
    • Has Cabin Camera been activated yet?
    • Complimentary Streaming Personal Radio account (for 4 years)?
    • Maintenance program?
    • Extended warranty?
    • Level of charge? (Should it be "full"?)
    • Any recalls to be applied? (Stabilizer links, very stiff suspension on early Model 3's)
    • Any TSB’s to be applied?
    • Firmware release (2018.24.7 d133af3 is current I think)
