Brake bleeding on the Model X...

I am about to do a complete brake fluid change and bleed on a 2016 Model X P90D.

I am not finding anything specific in the archive about the bleed order on the Model X. The only reference in the forums is from a Model 3 where the order is given as:

(1) Front Driver
(2) Front Passenger
(3) Rear Driver
(4) Rear Passenger

For the two bleeders on each caliper, the sequence is listed as:
(1) Outside Bleeder
(2) Inside Bleeder
(3) One more return to the Outside Bleeder

Can anyone confirm or correct the procedure or point me to additional resources about the Model X?

bleed the corner furthest from the master cylinder. save yourself the headache and buy a motive bleeder. the nipples don't really matter. you can bleed them both at the same time if you want.
