    Doesn't it seem like his model X has a window issue?

    Sure does. I think others have posted about this. I also saw a couple X's at my local SC with passenger windows taped up and inner door panels removed like they were in the middle of getting something fixed.

    It's because he had his front windows tinted. I had the same thing right after tinting my windows. I took it to the SC and they recalibrated my front windows and all is good.

    I think it's just the reflection. Doe it look dented to you? I would think if it was dented it would have a more concentrated warping of the image, this looks uniformly spread out. Or am I missing the obvious?

    i meant the alignment
    Look at the bottom third of the car where that bluish part is.

    Looks like he's turning to me so the wheel is tilted toward the camera.

    Free publicity for Tesla when celebrities drive Model X.

    What @CaliX said. Same happened to us. He just needs to re-calibrate the pinch sensor.
    I can't believe he's not hearing the glass hitting the frame!! It sounds like glass shattering for a moment!

    I can see a tiny bit. The other explanation is that the door does not set in quite right there. Even 2 mm difference could be noticeable at the angle the picture is taken at. I would not mess with it until the seals settle in, if needed at all.

    Does he have the suspension set to low?

    Like others have mentioned. The window tint made the windows loss it's calibration. Mine was like that as well, reset instructions from MarkZ fixed it. It's not from camera angle, it is really popped out at top end.

    Add me to the popped window club from getting windows tinted. @MarkZ's instructions did not help me (or I was doing it wrong) so a quick trip the the SC recalibrated the window. Interestingly, while they tinted both windows, only the driver's side lost calibration.

    Initally my driver window loses calibration after the window tint and I resetted only the driver window successfully. But after I got home, turned off car and opened my passenger side door somehow it made that window lose it's calibration too so I reset both windows at that time just to be sure. I swear lots of times this car's doors and windows are acting as if they are possessed.

    I have the same behavior in my X. Just recently the passenger window went completely out of alignment all by itself, and the wind noise sounded so bad I thought the glass would fly off. After dinner, the drive home was silent, so the window somehow fixed itself. I don't understand why Tesla had to re-invent the window! I've never had these types of problems in other cars.

    Rumor has it that all the clicking we hear is the doors recalibrating themselves, so there may be some truth in this statement.

    I thought the procedure was just to lower the window all the way down and hold the button for 10 seconds and then move it to the top and hold the button for 10 seconds too, and then maybe repeat once or twice until it does the right thing.
