    Model X Cargo Net

    *Update – Now Accepting Pre-orders* Jerry let me know enough interest was shown to proceed with production of the 6/7 Seat Model X Cargo Net. The cost will be $39.00 plus shipping, and you will not be charged until shipped. He expects to begin shipping the first week of June. *Note there is...

    Model X Cargo Net

    We have been looking for a cargo net for our 6 seat X since we bought it last June and just received one from my friend Jerry to evaluate... Really like it especially with it being an envelope type of net. Think it will work great in a 6 or 7 seat config but not certain for a 5 seat since it...

    Key fob case?

    I left the thong thing on the X keys and use it to attach a bottle opener keychain that I have. The S version is also nice and may move to that if the thong thing breaks which it will eventually do. For my S fob, I removed the chain/ring and then attached my bottle opener key chain directly to...

    Key fob case?

    Received two of our Abstract Ocean X fob covers today... they fit and look great! Thanks Pete! :) Note for everyone else, do not buy the imitation fob covers and support one of our TMC members buy purchasing from Abstract Ocean!

    Brake Controller not powering up

    Ahh... could be the fuse then. Thought you may be running into the LED issue. Good luck on getting it resolved.

    Brake Controller not powering up

    See this thread and specifically this post (#19)... I think this adapter will solve your issue. Towing a 2016 Airstream Sport 16

    Vanity Plate - Which one would you pick?

    Our two plates... Top is for the S and bottom is for the X

    Model X : Rear entertainment options

    Not sure if anyone is interested in having a DVD player as we were but bought this on Amazon Prime day and it fits perfectly (snug enough to not fall) between the two front seats while sitting on the rear of the front console. It does come with headrest mounts but that really doesn't work in...

    Vanity Plate - Which one would you pick?

    Have a little bit of bias but cast my vote... ;) Our plates are my Avatar. :)

    Humming noise - is this normal?

    Possible that it is the radiator fan running? I hear ours on our S & X occasionally when they are just sitting there as they do try to keep the battery pack at an optimal temp.

    Dogs in Model X - best way to keep clean & scratch-free

    Thanks for the review... We may hold off a little bit before getting another cover.

    AZ Tint/Wrap Recommendation

    Actually that is what Cactus offered... Suntek has 5 year warranty vs. 10 year for Xpel. We have been happy with Suntek on our S.
  13. irishstoutaz

    AZ Tint/Wrap Recommendation

    Suntek will be cheaper than XPel but also depends on your location I am certain. Based on doing everything we did, I would say to expect somewhere between $2.8k and $3k for Suntek and a bit higher for XPel.

    Dogs in Model X - best way to keep clean & scratch-free

    Here is our current setup when traveling with the dogs... We bought some Wetsuit seat covers at Costco for the middle row and have two body pillows on the floor. The rear has the S carpet with the dog bed on top. You still get a few dog hairs which will always occur but keeps it pretty...

    Dogs in Model X - best way to keep clean & scratch-free

    We have two dogs (Shepard-Husky mix and Terrier-Poodle mix) and have now made two trips to our cabin (2 hours each way) and went through the same anxiety as you with them being in the X. *Note: We do have our seats protected with a matte wrap (Suntek) so weren't as worried about that but do...

    Rear Cargo Spring Loaded Reliefs, For what?

    We were told during our delivery walkthrough that they were for future accessories such as a parcel shelf cover similar to what is offered in the S.

    Where to find a silicone TX key fob

    That is a cheap copy of the Abstract Ocean fob cover and would not even consider buying it. Stick with the original from Abstract Ocean.

    Where to find a silicone TX key fob

    The S silicone sleeve is a little snug and the Frunk/Trunk buttons slightly off but works for me until the X version is available. :)

    AZ Tint/Wrap Recommendation

    Not yet... So far it hasn't been bad. We did tint our Model S windshield but are waiting to see if we need to do any tint on the X outside of the Driver/Passenger doors.

    AZ Tint/Wrap Recommendation

    We picked up our X a few weeks ago and just had the full front end wrapped with Suntek including mirrors along with the rear bumper area below trunk lid, door sills in matte (aluminum piece), trunk sill (side pieces) and seat backs with matte. Also had the driver and passenger door tinted with...

    How much lead time on final delivery date scheduling?

    We received our MVPA on the 11th and sent a note to our DS and asked about delivery. Were told to expect to get it by the 20th but would confirm as soon as they knew the final date. Were called on the 14th to schedule deliver for the 17th or 18th. Picked it up on the 18th.

    When does the Honeymoon end ?

    It never ends... We got our S on 6/8/2013 and drover our previous vehichle about 8,500 miles per year. The S now has 54k and just turned three years old and still love it! You will love driving it and not want to drive anything else! 'Eve' now gets to take a rest in our garage while we...

    Delivery estimate on final MVPA Accurate?

    We received our final MVPA on 6/7 and showed 6/11 delivery. Contacted by DS on 6/14 to schedule delivery. Took delivery on 6/18 but had an option for 6/17.

    There was a Red P being delivered Sat here. You will have a 'twin' driving around somewhere in the area.

    How long you get car after car entered production?

    Cool! :cool: Hope everything is good with it!

    How long you get car after car entered production?

    Thought that might be the case as I am sure you are anxious to get it but just thought I would mention since I have never seen that many cars waiting to be prepped. I am sure yours will be this week. :)

    Any Experience with SunTek tint and bra products?

    We have had it on our S for three years and have been happy with it. Getting our front done on our X on Fri. *BTW, I would recommend doing the full hood vs. partial wrap. Especially on a dark color as you will be able to see the line when there is any dirt/dust. Our S had the factory...

    How long you get car after car entered production?

    Have you been by the SVC Ctr? There were a number of X's (still in protective wrap) when we were there on Sat to pick our X up. Wasn't paying close attention but definitely had a quite a few vehicles waiting to be prepped. I was told that ours would arrive on Thu night and be ready by...

    Model X June Deliveries

    Took delivery today!!! Only need a slight adjustment on the driver door. Otherwise it is perfect! Eve finally has a big brother after a 2 year 11 month wait! :D

    Model X Insurance

    We have Allstate (Home/Vehicle) and our X 90D is replacing a 2011 Sequoia (Limited) and the increase is $154 every 6 months. Was similar to our increase on our S back in 2013. Really not that bad considering the X is more than 3x of the value of the Sequoia.

    Received our MVPA last week and have delivery scheduled for this Sat (VIN 6279). :D

    Is AC powerful enough for AZ summers?

    As jomo25 mentioned and fully agree, our S has also been fine and know the X will be similar. The A/C fan will be noisy at first but you will use the pre-cool option via the app often and is a great feature. It will stay on for ~30 min at a time so just plan accordingly.

    Black on Black

    We are very close with our configuration: ModelXTracker | Production (United States) # 4504: MODEL X 90D | Midnight Silver | 20 | Black | 6S | FAW | BH | PUP | SZ | AP | SAS | UHFS | TP

    Model X June Deliveries

    So yours is identical to mine which makes me think they have no meaning (though our VIN's are close... ours is 6279). guess we will know the real date when it actually occurs. ;)

    Black on Black

    Have not taken delivery yet of our X (estimate is end of June) but we configured with black seats and headliner and Figured Ash. We were able to test drive a Sig X with the same configuration and thought it looked great and helped us in making our final decision to go with this config. Our S...

    New Forum Design

    I have tried to search and can't seem to find reference to it and apologize if this has been answered already but are we able to have Signatures longer than one line? I went in to edit/update mine and see the following: Mine is currently three lines and actually wanted to shorten it to two.

    Model X June Deliveries

    No additional updates from our DS so am still assuming ours will still start production at the end of May with an end of June delivery. That being said, I was checking the source as well and wondered if anyone saw a different 'First Available' date in the delivery section and/or if really...

    Tesla X: Window tinting, Windshield tinting, Paint Protective Film, Seats wrap film

    Who did you have do yours? We will be taking ours to Rick at Cactus Tint and hope to also do the windshield of it isn't too expensive. We had him do our S and have been happy with it.

    Backing up slowly in reverse gear suddenly shifts to park?

    I have had the same thing occur with our S... didn't realize the driver door was not closed completely and it stopped. Definitely wakes you up!

    Help...Please. Looking at a used Tesla...Build Sheets Available?

    That was built before May 2013 (we have VIN 11380 which was delivered 6/8/2013 and built in May). You will not have parking sensors or folding mirrors as they came out later that year if I recall.

    Such a great car... Why such crappy floor mats?

    I got them from ForMyTesla.com Just contact Jerry about the details as there are a variety of options along with colors, etc. that he has available so really completely custom.

    Such a great car... Why such crappy floor mats?

    There are a variety of aftermarket mats available... We ordered a set for our S and have been happy with them and they are ~ 3 years old and holding up well. We will also be ordering a set for our X. Here is a shot of the S interior mats:

    Status Update for 75D Order Holders!? 90D/P90D holders add input! :)

    I received it the day after confirmation (4/11) and just appeared on MyTesla page. Our X config: Reserved 7/13/2013 (#4,504) Confirmed 4/11/2016: 90D | Midnight Silver | Black | Figured Ash | Black Liner | 20" | Premium | AP | 6 seat | Ultra High Sound | Towing | 72 A | Sub Zero

    Status Update for 75D Order Holders!? 90D/P90D holders add input! :)

    We confirmed on 4/11 (VIN 6729) and now see the same thing where there is no option to change. I spoke to our DS on Thu when we had our S in for service and she confirmed we were still looking at end of June. She said ours is scheduled for actual production at the end of May. So I don't think...
