    What is the handle formed into the left side panel of the (rear) trunk for? Seems like a way to pull the panel like some cars and vans have for a spare tire, but I don't know what would be back there and it doesn't seem to come off easily. I can't find it in the on-screen manual either.

    I actually think that is the vent/air opening for the subwoofer.

    It's the manual release for the charger cable. I asked the SC the first time I went after I got my X. First two people there didn't know either. I think the subwoofer is actually on the right (passenger) side.

    Cool! Hope I don't need to use it though.

    Look closer,, mine feels like it is an electrical connector on end of wires. I don't have MX here, need to grab a flashlight
