    Random Model X sightings

    Very random, even though at the Helsinki store. We dropped by, "do you guys have a Model X yet?" "Funny you should ask, we have the only one in all of Europe, they're taking it off the truck right now" "unfortunately, we can't drive it because we can't charge it, it's North America spec." They...

    How long it takes for Model X to move through Production

    Add some time for them to adjust the krowl settings on the Framitz arms, plus a day or two to dial in the quansit levels. Then somebody will call you and say, "your car's ready, when dahya wanna come get it? " oh happy day! Oops, I forgot to put in the wink faces, or whatever;):eek:o_O

    Does the Model X exist?

    I like the OP. Reminds me of Luke Skywalker hassling Yoda about how ready he is to be a Jedi ;):p:D Delivered, someday your car, will be. How did they get that X-wing fighter out of the swamp anyway?

    Deliveries all happen at the store on State St. When I first confirmed many months ago, it said home delivery like the old days, but changed in a few days to pick up at the store.

    Model X May Deliveries

    Poised to debit $100k from our acct to my Tesla, finger on button, my wife said, " let's do $1,000, see if it goes through,". That's where it stands today. I guess we'll bring a check to delivery.

    Ludicrous, Insane mode ...

    Ps come with insane which is nice. o_O Ludicrous adds higher capacity battery contactors, and a higher capacity inverter that can dump insane, oh, sorry, ludicrous amounts of AC into the motor.

    My Journey to ordering a Model X

    Literally just days away at this point. Omg, you have no idea :D!! My 'vegan interior' as my wife calls it, using the proper term, of course, and my no PUP set me back quite a ways, appearantly. Based on events as they have recently unfolded, I guess it all worked out in my favor. I'll just...

    Model X May Deliveries

    Mine is "1 1/2 to two weeks out" as of last Monday. I have been told there wasn't a lot to do on it, but they have ordered "a couple of trim parts" for replacement. Torture. Also, the horn didn't work o_O first I've heard of that one.

    My Journey to ordering a Model X

    That's awesome - & a Model 3 too! Just want to add...nicely, that I reserved 3 years ago next week, & still don't have my car. The ups and downs of the wait have been joyous misery. That said, you'll love it! And my takeaway from your story is that car dealerships are evil and should be put out...

    What's up with HPWC?

    Just a little EVSE eye candy for you fellow enthusiasts who may be wondering or waiting. Here's how it comes. Pretty box. Blitzen took to the packaging right away:). I felt I needed a little over 8', I don't know why the other option is 24', but 24' is A LOT of cable. You can come visit &...

    Model X at showrooms?

    Our guys in SLC have a red one that was on its way to somewhere but delivery got cancelled. I was told they are trying to get HQ to let them keep it for their tester, but it will probably get sold instead. Looks like the first time I sit behind the wheel of a Model X, it will be the one that...

    What's up with HPWC?

    I ordered one on Tuesday, nothing yet. When I told my DS, "no worries, there's a SuperCharger 3.7 miles from my house." He said, "we'll see if we can expedite that delivery for you." :p All well intentioned, he just wants me to be ready. What I did get yesterday was an email invite to pay for...

    Cloth seats?

    :) good one. The guys at my store say they have yet to see a Model X w cloth seats. To repeat myself from long ago: When I told my brother & family that I would get cloth seats in my Tesla, their reaction was as if I had said I was a serial killer or something :eek: Some people think high-end...

    Model X May Deliveries

    Of the 4 Xs here, 2 had VINs higher than mine & one was just under. A scenic of some recent deliveries to Salt Lake City. @ModelX ... yours was inside. Yes, I saw it !!!!!!! Oops, I guess that should be in the April deliveries thread. Just barely Ha!

    Hotel Tesla in a Model X

    It pains me to say, "I don't think so." I'll make some experimental attempts at it too, (don't have mine yet :eek:) but between the front edge of the folded down 3rd row & the backs of the 2nd row all the way forward, there is a nice big deep pit to the floor. You could fill it w properly sized...

    Virginia Dealer Association suing Tesla to prevent new store openings

    Hopefully the poor dears are ever so painfully aware of the hundreds of thousands of us that stood in line to reserve the NEXT Tesla. Panic is sooo not attractive. :confused:

    Model X vs Model S early delivery issues

    I think the OP's mentioned NYT article might be re: "the Brodering". There's one you haven't heard for awhile! That particular case was malicious, agenda driven non-journalism ... not a problem, or "issue" w the car. Very bad for some time, but now who do you hear from/about most...

    Should Tesla cut its losses...

    Ha! That's what my wife says. Not nearly ambitious enough though. I was trying to say that the X is part of the master plan that is well under way, and being carried out amazingly well, leading to the mass market 3, but was maybe a bit too ambitious on their part, and they realize that now. It...

    Should Tesla cut its losses...

    Every day I'm amazed by the "ideas" thrown at the wall around here. Did you really want to see if "cut your losses, abandon Model X" was going to stick? The CEO has already said "hubris", "most difficult car to produce", "probably no one should have tried to make this car" etc. (sorry for the...

    No sound, no soul?

    Try putting your face (mouth) right up to the "soul" of your car while it's revving. Then take 3 or 4 nice deep breaths. If you're still alive, you can tell everyone how much you enjoy the noise.
