    Model X 75D Real World Range

    Thank you ! It was my misunderstanding. :(

    Model X 75D Real World Range

    To be fair, it is $10k and not $12.5k, because the 90D already comes with air suspension which is a $2500 option on the 70D, also you get active spoiler but I can't estimate how much that is worth.

    Powder Coated 20" Factory Wheels.

    It's gloss, only cost me $350 + tax, and additional $40 for buying the center caps & nut covers from Tesla. :)

    75D vs 90D

    The answer is simple. Because the 60D's battery isn't really 60 kWh. The 60D is a 75D with battery's capacity limited by software. Which means they could tune it up to provide exactly 200 miles of range (ideal, not rated or actual) as they advertised.

    Protecting the back of 2nd row seats

    Anyone who could suggest kick mats / seat covers for the 2nd row seat? I've tried 3 different kinds and they don't fit. The difficulty was at: (1) the size of the mat (the distance between the top strap and bottom strap isn't long enough), (2) the seat belt (the bottom strap must be clip in...

    75D vs 90D

    I am happy that I chose the 75D, for the price bump of $10000 (price difference $12500 less $2500 for Air Suspension which is standard on 90D), you get so little boost in range: (257-237) x 90% = 18 miles, and takes 20% off from there which is consumed by A/C and other conditions, will be around...

    Model X 75D Real World Range

    I live in Orange County and found out the fact as below: - Ideal Range on 100% charge = 237 miles - Ideal Range on 90% charge = 212 miles - Actual Range on 90% charge = 150 miles *(yes, we lost about 30% from A/C, we drive the car VERY gently, we did have to use A/C quite a lot while the car is...

    Powder Coated 20" Factory Wheels.

    No problem, I actually found out Tesla sells the carter cap and nut covers, at incrediblely low price. They are $5 /ea and $1 /ea, yes you read me right, one dollar! This is probably the cheapest thing sold by Tesla, ever.

    Powder Coated 20" Factory Wheels.

    I dropped of the car today to a shop for powder coating, they charge reasonable price for the wheels, and asks $3 per wheel nut and $5 per center piece. Although it is only $80 more to do all, the business owner is honest enough to warn me that because those are plastic parts, the paint might...

    All-Weather Lloyd Mats Installed (pics)

    I am ok at the price of the mats themselves, they are reasonable -- $65 / two pieces for 1st row seats and $65 / one piece for 2nd row seat, but this company (Evannex) wants $64.33 shipping fee for those two products? And that's not even expedite shipping, but FedEx Ground. No way, that is a...

    question about scheduled charging

    Thanks @gravity, I guess my concern is only because I haven't have 240V circuit installed yet, I am charging via 120V at 3 miles /hr rate.

    buttons to open doors are not placed in th best positons

    I just took delivery of my car 3 days ago, and have made mistake clicking on the wrong buttons on the screen when trying to open doors. I know it might just take some time to get used to it, however, with the image of car shown there, shouldn't the buttons for front doors be placed on the top...

    question about scheduled charging

    I just took delivery of my 75D 3 days ago, and the whole family is loving it. I have a question about scheduled charging. Car owners set this for the purpose of only charging during off-peak time, however it only has start time and not end time, and really isn't a "schedule". So that creates...

    Lloyd Mats - Rubbertite mats in the X? Good?

    I wonder if there's alternative choice other than the Lloyd All-Season & Luxe Mats from www.eveverything.com ? I have two kids and definitely need the all-weather mats. I like those made by TechWeather but looks that they have not made anything for the Model X yet. And the Lloyd one looks...

    When will 75D's start production

    yes, they did contact me early this month and I am now deciding between Leasing and Tesla Lending -- yes I know the interest will be higher if I go with Tesla Lending, but I like the assurance that if something goes terribly wrong on this car (I mean on a global scale, not on my vehicle), I...

    I don't understand why you (and some other people who have higher VIN's and live in other states) get a pick up date and and I have not. VIN 859x Reserved 9/30/2012 Confirmed 11/30/2015 Orange County, CA

    Alliant Credit Union 1.49% for 72 months

    I would still go for Tesla Lending. The buy back guarantee is an insurance, I believe I would be able to sell it to private party at a price way higher than that, but just in case anything unexpected happens to Model X (I mean in a global scale, which affects the resale value of it, not...

    In 6-seat config, middle-row seats need to be moved toward center

    yes, or another way to say it is -- the 6-seat configuration would be much more attractive me to, if it had arm rests.:)

    In 6-seat config, middle-row seats need to be moved toward center

    Of course there is no arm rest for 7-seat configuration, I meant for how far away the seats are positioned, and the available space in the 6-seat, they could have put arm rests on like Mercedes did in R-Class: (If picture does not show, check teh following link...

    In 6-seat config, middle-row seats need to be moved toward center

    A few months ago I went to the "Meet Model X" event and be one of the few who got to test drive the Model X. The vehicle we drove was 6-seat configuration. I believe the positioning of the seats are perfectly fine, I think they are in the very same position as 5/7 seats configuration for the...

    75D and Just Got a VIN!

    Renting out a leased Model X on Turo ?

    I know it might be better to post this question in a more general forum, however I decided to make it here in case there is any difference in leasing terms of Model S and of Model X. I am one of the earliest owner who will take delivery on Model X 75D (my configuration of 70D was confirmed in...

    First Delivery Date for a 70D

    I'm just a bit ahead of you, at res #15XX made in Sep 2012, configuration of a 70D confirmed in 11/2015 (has been upgraded to 75D now). I'm hoping my order being one of the earliest 75D deliveries. Have waited long enough and the $3000 free upgrade is the only thing that made me happy so far.

    Want My Model X Reservation? It's ready to configure now!!

    thanks for pointing it out. OK, fine, if it's not transferrable, why would they let you change the person who should be contacted to follow up the order, even to change every piece of info of the primary owner ?

    Want My Model X Reservation? It's ready to configure now!!

    I know Tesla does not want to see you sell a reservation, but I doubt if there really is a term somewhere saying you can't transfer it ?? Assuming mutual trusting is not an issue (the buyer will pay $5000 + maybe some premium to the seller, and the seller is fully operative in giving the...

    Hi from a new member

    I wasn't upset at the rebate itself, as I stated above, I was upset that Tesla saleman never brought it up when I asked him for incentives.

    Hi from a new member

    Thanks for the warm greeting, Bonnie. It's either I am too dumb to find out how to edit my post, or this function hasn't been opened to new member yet. I just registered a few minutes before posting. My 1st question here is -- When can we see a Model X in a showroom in LA / OC ? I believe...
