Thanks again for the comments, it is the exceptional space in the S that is causing the hesitation.
It really is large enough to satisfy our 'large' car needs for 95% of all occasions and it is just a little narrower than the X, but of course still a wide car by UK standards.
Logic dictates that is should be the S, but I suspect it will come down to the test drives in both, as although the Tesla will be primarily my car, my wife does prefer the higher seating position and visibility of the X.
Hence this thread as I want to do arrange the test drives at the preferred sales location.
My wife will probably end up in an Audi TT, and the S will handle the vast majority of our other needs as we are rarely requiring 5 seats and would almost never use 7, so it is mostly about load capacity which the S has to a surprising degree given the body shape.
although in fairness even the S is hardly 'small'

Only certainty is the Tesla will be 100D

If you are carrying more than 5 people it has to be the X
in the S now has bolsters it is not a comfortable place to be for a long journey. The seat is too low to the floor
I was in the same boat as you. Have you driven both? The models s is a superior drive with better performance and is more fun and a driver's car, however you can ignore the presence and utility of a model X. I went the sensible route and ordered a model x, black, white seats, 6 seater, 22" rims and auto pilot. you will be more than happy with either.Thanks for the referral code offers guys, I'm keeping a list of those who have been helpful on my path to a purchase and I'll reach out ask for a code once I'm 100% ready to place the order.
@sidmini - I'm still stuck between the X and the S right now, we are replacing two cars at the same time, one will be a Tesla, the other probably an Audi. Just have to figure out which will be the larger and which the smaller, although in fairness even the S is hardly 'small'
Only certainty is the Tesla will be 100D with Enhanced AP and Premium Upgrade, probably blue with cream interior. If it is an X it will be the 7 seat version.
Thanks for the comments Sam, just as my heart was edging closer to the S you bring my head back to the X...
I think to be perfectly honest the one thing that is causing me to be hesitant about the X is the sheer size of the vehicle.
It is not like I haven't had large cars in the past, and it is not like the S is 'small' but it seems like those few extra inches on the width might make all the difference at times.
How do you find it for UK driving with our multi-storey car parks and small spaces?
Its all a personal choice and after driving and seeing them close up, not a decision to be made at the keyboard.
