so pretty ...
So I went from seeing no Xs here, to seeing three in one day! First was my wife reporting a sighting of a midnight silver, license #6416 in Kailua Friday morning. Then on my way home after work, I saw a signature red driven by Jenny from the SC on H-1 eastbound, license #6469, then finally I saw a silver one in Hawaii Kai. Unfortunately, my reflexes weren't quick enough, nor was it safe to snap a pic.
Spleen, Congratulations on getting your X. Its beautiful.
Congrats on the new Model X.
Saw the same silver X again, but this time I caught the plate - #6899. I'm assuming it's a P90, but I'm sure I'll see it again, as I think the owner lives near me.
You know your Model X in Hawaii isn't real until we have pics on the TMC website.
We want pics!
We want pics!
Pics! Thanks to Akikiki for a lot of these!!
Love the pics! Interesting color choices - definitely will be a unique X to spot out there.
I see no front plate in the pictures. Did they provide you with the option again to not install it? I thought that since they're licensed now they would have to install it prior to delivery. I'm assuming you told them ahead of time and provided the safety check sticker bracket?
I had sent an email to Daniel asking not to install the front plate after all. They actually did the safety check sticker bracket on their own - my parents' new S had also come with it automatically so I figured that they would do the same for the X which they did.
Wow, I have been considering changing over to the dark wheels, they really transform the car's appearance.
I bet nobody wants to drive to work tomorrow more than Spleen ; )
Car is stuck in the garage until Xpel is done! Ugh.
How long does it take to cure/dry?
spleen, I hope that you are not have too much separation anxiety since you aren't able to drive the Model X for a while while on your trip.
I'm trying not to go crazy
That's okay. Your wife can drive it for you.
Paint protection film installation began this week. When Peter from Jun's Tinting came out to check the car and to pick up the car key and garage door opener from me, he noted that the left rear bumper was slightly warped and one of the tabs that fastens the bumper to the body was showing. Looking at it closely, I could see what he was talking about though nothing is really that visible when just looking at the area. Feeling the area though, you can feel the warp.
Talked to Jenny at the SC who graciously offered to come out to the house to inspect because the car was tied up getting the rest of the paint protection film applied (except for the rear bumper - I got permission from Jenny). She just came out last night and noted the issue and said that she would be ordering a replacement factory painted rear bumper and would let me know when it comes in so it can be installed. As always, the SC is top notch and Tesla service rocks!
Once the majority of the film is in place and tinting done during the rest of this week, I'll finally be able to drive the car! And then to Shea's next week Saturday for Opticoat with wheels off (will have to go back after new bumper in place and its paint protection film gets placed to get that part opticoated separately).
Whew, finally coming together!
Here's a story of a couple who previously lived on Maui taking delivery of a Model X. There's a connection between their DS and their favorite plate lunch when they lived back in Maui. Check it out:

Nanimac posted a comment to the new X owners on the linked page too. The funny thing is that we've been fierce competitors with arrival dates of our vehicles since 2013 with the same type of Teslas with the same paint colors, and I just noticed that both of our posts showed 1527 messages. Egads, we're competing on number of messages posted too, but with this message I am at 1528 and one message ahead of her now!
