First sight of our red Model 3 was when we pulled into the Buena Park
Store. They have several superchargers on the lot, and there she
the showroom, we told them we were there to pick up our car and we saw
Peter pull it from the Supercharger to the side lot and put on the
paper plate, then came inside to greet us.
Peter helped the 3 of us get our
Tesla apps on our phones set up as our key to
the car, all 3 with the same login. You will need to know the
password to your phone and share that with others with you. We
also got 2 credit-card
sized "keys" as valet keys or if our phones went dead. He also
showed us the included cable for charging at home or on the road at a
non-Supercharger or non-Destination charger.
Peter gave us a clear plastic envelope with this notice on top.
We signed all the papers while sitting in the car. It was 90+
degrees so we learned how to start the air conditioning right
away. We walked the papers inside, gave them the check from the
credit union, and were told we could drive off.

Took some photos as soon as we got home.
Sue included our solar panels in this photo so we could show the source
of our car's power.
Wanting to take a new-car ride, and feeling sorry for ourself not being
able to go to Maui on this date, we used "Chauffeur Mode" and had our
son drive us to Huntington Beach, down the coast to Laguna Beach, had
dinner at the Royal Hawaiian, and drove home at sunset.

home. Reflection at the bottom is out the back of the car between
Matthew and Sue.

Without an instrument cluster on the dash, you can position the
steering wheel lower for better visibility of the road. The
important information on the 15" screen at the center (shown in night
mode). The wide vent in the dash above the wood grain is the A/C
and can be positioned any direction for driver and passenger.
Back seat passengers have their own A/C in the center console.
The 15" screen does not block road visibility for any passenger.
Windshield and Roof are 3 glass sections from front trunk lid to back
trunk lid - very nice for back seat passengers. There are
portable shades for sale for the roof, but in 80 degree, sunny weather
we didn't notice any discomfort. Perhaps the roof sections are
more tinted than earlier versions.
