    For those of you who received your Model X, I would like to know which of you received the promised sunshade for the panoramic windshield.

    Please post when you took delivery and your experience with the sunshade/panoramic windshield.

    Thanks

    Sorry for asking this question so many times, but I wanted to add a poll and I can't add it older threads.

    I heard from a DS today that the original sunshades that were supposed to be delivered were of such poor quality that TM has sourced a new supplier

    That explains why they stopped giving them after the initial release. Did you take deliver yet? If not when? Please keep us posted regarding the status of the sunshade

    Thanks

    We picked up our second Sig on Tuesday. No sunshade and the information was it will ship directly to owners once inventory is available. Same thing happened with the S on early items that were in short supply.

    I wonder what the redesigned sunshade would look like, for those of you who voted yes is your sunshade the new one or the initial release?

    Haha! So true, I even got Elon Musk to respond to my tweet about sunshades.

    We got our X on Tuesday and it came with a due bill for a sunshade. I didn't ask when it would arrive.

    On a related note, I've found that the tinting does an excellent job of blocking the sun in the upper part of the windshield. It's much like the panoramic roof in the S.

    Love the album! It is satisfying to see all the sunshade photos together! I wonder what the redesign sunshades would look like

    Are you referring to the factory tint already there, or aftermarket tint you installed? If aftermarket, what % tint did you get, and can you post pics?

    Anyone know what brand of tint and its darkness percentage is on the rear windows and rear windshield? We're thinking of tinting the front windows to match, and it would be great if we could tell the tint installer the exact product to use.

    How exactly is this sun shade supposed to be used? While driving, or just when parked? Seems like it would be a pain in the a** to put on and take off and stow.

    I think it's intended for people who find the windshield too bright while driving. So you'd install it and leave it there most of the time. I'm hoping I won't find it necessary.

    Factory tint. We did not add any aftermarket tint.
