    You can also tell us if the tint on the panoramic windshield and FWD is adequate, since both of us live in sunny O.C.

    I don't want to hijack ModelXBoy's thread, but let me say real quick: thank you for the kind words! I really appreciate it!

    You seem like a fun enough guy to actually get the crazy Model X license plate idea I had:

    "GV IT2YA"

    As in "X gon' give it to ya" from the super-fun song of the same name by DMX. ;-)

    Congrats! Beautiful car! Nice pics :) I am glad that delivery experience was good! I was worried how it is there with all this lack of communication with them you reported earlier :) good to hear they are good team to deliver car. I am hoping for similar experience in a week or so :)

    Sunshade is out of stock. They will ship to me when they receive them. As well as some key chains because the key fob does not have any hooks or chains you can link to other keys.

    Just drove pretty crazy from irvine to torrance, and back. Let me tell you the auto pilot is a dream come true. I am so afraid that i will forgot how to drive a car in the near future.

    Here are some pros and cons so far after only 1 hour of driving
    Pros:
    Great handling, ludicrous mode is ludicrously fast!
    Auto pilot works really well, just make sure keep eyes on the road regardless. Be safe!
    doors awesome!
    can't really tell how good the filter is, but it's there, look cool!
    auto presenting door also works very well, you go near it door opens, go away it closes and lock the car.
    helicopter pit is awesome, great view
    More time is needed to figure out the true quality of the build.

    Cons:
    right door still squeaks when closing
    iphone docking does not align 100%, so manual work is needed. Can not blind insert, will stuck
    Again, more time is needed to figure out if any more cons.

    Thanks guys. I had a blast today. Hope you all can get your X soon! very soon! It's not a great car, it's a revolutionary car!

    You were in Irvine, too bad I didn't see you ): I only saw one sig X for a couple of seconds in Fullerton a few weeks ago. It will be nice and sunny and hot this week, looking forward on hearing your experience with the X and the panoramic windshield!

    The fob box has two lanyards with traditional keychain rings on them to go on the two key fobs that come with the car.

    Unfortunately they only give me two key fobs, no box, no lanyards. They said they are out stock and will ship to me asap when they get them back in stock. : \

    Wow. They are building + delivering X's faster than they can get fob boxes and lanyards from wherever they source those things? That's pretty cool, though it definitely sucks for you at the moment. Look into a faraday bag from Amazon as a temporary way to store your keys if you tend to hang your keys up.

    Congratulations, ModelXBoy

    What kind of Faraday bag would you recommend for the MX Key fob? I am hoping to pick up my X P90D before the end of this month at the Fremont factory
