Does Model X AP act differently when there are passengers? Sharp turns?

I have noticed that Model X acts differently when there are passengers inside? has anybody experienced this? Also Model X is terrible at making S curves and sharp turns? it doesn't stay in the lane. Model 3 does a better job. What is everyone's experience?

well the 3 is closer to the ground....

and of course more passengers = more weight to move around

if it doesn't stay in the lane, that's the tires slowly skidding from the intended path. just slow down to avoid deviation

i also went from a 3 to the X. the X feels like a boat when turning. air suspension is never going to be as solid as regular springs/shocks/struts.

it's going to come down to suspension height, tires, and terrain. put it on low (or very low if you know the road is flat) and you will get better handling.

I mean specifically regarding AP on handling sharp curves or if there are sharp curves back to back? What’s your experience compared to model 3? I feel like 3 AP is more reliable

that being said, I absolutely love Model X. It’s an amazing car
