    We got our Model X yesterday. My husband and I were trying to figure out the best way to park our Teslas. If I park front first, I can transfer the cable easy. If I park rear first, the FWD will open with no problem. With some practice, we think we will be fine with parking front first so we can transfer the cable easily. Watch until the end and you'll see when I didn't pull up enough :redface:

    Thanks for the video. Quite interesting. I was surprised that the sensors allowed the fwd to touch the support. Again, thanks for taking the time to post this.

    Dang that scratch sucks, are there any visible marks on the door?
    You should hang a tennis ball from a string connected to the ceiling. That would help you know that you are pulled in far enough.

    Well since I can't hang anything, I've used the number on the ground and the rear view camera to know how far I need to pull in IMG_3769.JPG

    I'm sure you could hang it with an adhesive.
