    Said Musk on the earnings call. Hopefully this means deliveries made starting late May should be better quality than what we've seen so far.

    Whatever you say about Elon, you can't say, at least with a straight face, that he doesn't tell it like he sees it. Wow, that is a bold statement.

    Well I don't want to challenge EM but I would put mine up to his first flawless one of 4/29 and mine was made 3/16. I cannot find anything materially wrong with it (unless you want to count the third row seats that just got swapped today).

    Agreed. I don't know if this a positive or a negative given it was seven months since the September 29th reveal. I received mine on January 11th, and I believe mine is flawless.

    Yours could have been fixed post-manufacturing during the inspections phase. I took what Elon took to mean that it rolled out of the production line flawless.

    I took what Elon said to mean the first one he's checked/seen that was flawless. Remember, he didn't decide to step in and check some himself until a couple of weeks ago.

    Agreed. Elon is not the best public speaker ;)

    Is it possible Elon may have dozed off while curled up in his sleeping bag on the production floor and simply missed some other flawless Model X's coming off the line a few days earlier? ;)

    I would much rather to believe Elon's time after April 29th builds to be better than previous built Xs. Looking at my X and many other Model Xs in the SC. I definitely believe Elon is bringing up the quality significantly. Myself along with some other Model X owners I came contact with all have quality problems. Hopefully Tesla will sustain the high quality standard from now on.

    That's great.
    Hopefully it won't take them another 7 months to create the second flawless one.

    Was I the only one expecting someone to ask him about the sunshade during the QA? I am sure that is critical information for investors.

    Yea but according to Tesla my X was scheduled to enter production this week, I haven't received confirmation if it did

    Actually it was almost 2 months ago. Not a couple of weeks. Given the quality issues in December, not sure why it took even that long.
