    I'm looking to potentially looking to lower my X and I am going through all the available options.
    I've read about Unplugged Performance's version.

    Has anyone used: TESLA MODEL X EVOLUTION LOWERING KIT / LINKS / MODULE

    They have solid feedback from Audi, Mercedes, etc drivers.

    Thanks,

    JC

    Can you explain the install process? Wheels need to come off or?
    Thanks Skilly

    wheels come off or you put the car on a lift for your access. There are links with a fixed length already from the factory. These are essentially replacements that tell the computer measurement a different story. So you turn these links to be shorter or longer and it cheats the system into thinking its riding at factory height.

    The advantage to the brackets is that you will still get the full ride height without changing the travel distance on the air ride. So all of the ride comfort drive abilities will remain the same. With links you are compressing the suspension travel.

    They cant void a warranty unless a part fails because of your modification. And, they need to prove it; not the other way around. This is law covered under the Magnusson Moss Warranty Act.

    That said, I had the shop use the links on my S today. The links on the front of the X are longer than in the S. So unless they are purpose build for the X, they wont work. I ordered the Unplugged Performance Brackets so I dont have to mess around with it. The pictures that show the "after" installation are exactly the look I am wanting - made it easy...

    looks good - I just ordered the brackets over the weekend too. What setting are you in with those pictures, and do you drive it like that? Did you have an alignment done afterwards?

    Cheers
