    I picked up my Model X at the beginning of December and I really, really like it.

    My DS wasn't super responsive; I'm presently getting a noise removed from one of the FWDs; I use what I've been told are not pretty enough kick mats on the back of the front seats because my kids are kids; I don't have any autopilot features; and my windshield ghosts.

    But I get to drive a MFing spaceship that emits no exhaust. I haven't been to the gas station in a month. My 3 kids can get in and out with ease. It handles great in snow. The slacker radio has a Dive Bar Jukebox channel.

    Man, the thing is freaking amazing. I'll let the future figure itself out, but I can't even begin to describe what a joy it is not to be uptight.

    Sorry to rant!

    You are basically describing a Model X sans AP feature so it's not specific to AP1/2 features. Yes the car itself is pretty cool. Enjoy.

    I got a December delivery as well, and my MX is in the shop after a tech backed it into a wall, and I've been driving a P85 loaner. When this happened, I was not happy, but I was not my normal self. My normal self would have been furious. I have been so smitten with the MX (and have been really enjoying the P85, too) that I am a lot more forgiving, especially knowing that if I don't like the Tesla experience, there is no other alternative unless I go back to an ICE, which won't be happening!

    The MX is not just a car; it's an experience. It feels alive.

    Also AP2 December delivery for me. I agree with everything! Are you enjoying our crappy windshield washers? It is a privilege to drive. Can't wait until autopilot features as well.
