    Following fantastic factory tour, took delivery of our Sig X P90D on 12-29. Delivery team was great. Drove to Pasadena "90%" on Driver Assist. Exterior Sig Red color looks great and interior cabin personifies perfection -- sort of feels like you're in a high-end mini corporate jet. Opted for six seating. Would have liked traditional leather pockets on the seat backs instead of the sleek dark plastic. Falcon wing doors are a hoot, but can bring about a lot of "Tesla Talk" in an Applebee's parking lot. They operate at about the same speed as the trunk door on a Model S. (About 5-6 seconds) Falcon sensors are highly sensitive and sometimes you have to override them to fully close the doors, but not a big deal). Acceleration and Ludicrous are highly responsive. Runs quiet just like our Model S which we traded-in for the X. However, I could generally keep the watts/mi close to 300 (optimal range) on the S. But so far, with our X I can't seem to get Wh/mi below 350. (Obviously using a "light foot" and no Ludicrous.) Will have to work on this.

    Fantastic! I'm glad to hear that you're enjoying your car!

    Just FYI, I don't think anyone is sick of pictures yet. ;)

    I hope you realize that the X will use more energy than the S, it's simply a bigger vehicle, there's no way around that.
