    So yesterday was the big day. Our 90D 6 seat arrived and after a very quick delivery process I drove it home which was a 90 minute drive. First Impressions:
    1. Tremendous acceleration. 100% torque and HP immediately.
    2. Quiet ride on the road at 75 mph. Handling excellent
    3. Media system is amazing. Great sound. (Standard system)
    4. Autopilot works as promised.
    5. No problems in Florida heat with giant windshield. A/C set to 73 kept everything comfortable.

    Some negatives so far:

    No arm rests for second row seats.
    Lack of storage in center console. I had to remove one set of cup holder dividers to make room for the usual stuff.
    Small Glove box. See a theme here? More storage in an SUV would be nice.
    Rear hatch opened all the way at the dealership but now that I am home it only opens 75%. I am tall so have to manually push it up all the way.

    More to follow.....

    Congratulations on your delivery.. You will just love your X. I can't get enough of driving it each day. At home and if you have the room, you can set the door to open all the way at that location. There is a dialogue box on the door settings screen.

    Have you tried resetting the door height by pressing and holding the "close" button on the hatch until it beeps? On the Model S, that's how you set the height for the automatic open.

    Congrats!
    Question on your final walk-through, did you find any QA problems?

    No. My SC was awesome and everything was perfect.

    Thanks! I found it on the menu system and set everything to open all the way. It now works fine. I guess it was sensing the ceiling in my garage but it didn't know that I have high ceilings in there and can easily open everything up to max. Its all set now.

    Also after driving around town today I realize yet again that the driving standards in Florida are too low. I swear they would give a license to a chimp here if he went in to DMV and payed the money. Almost got in two wrecks today in the brand new X because idiots were running stop signs and following me way too close. It does make a valid argument for buying a 2000 Ford F350 and welding steel bar bumpers to the front and back as my neighbor did. When he drives he never stresses! He says go ahead, hit me... make my day. LOL

    No pics of delivery. Was too busy trying to remember all the things the guy was telling me about different functions.

    For the rear hatch issue, are you in your garage? If so, the car detects that there is obstacle over the car and will open the FWD and trunk lower. I believe you can adjust it and have the car open at a different height for the location memorized.

    Congratulations! Enjoy the ride. And yes I know what you mean by driving standards. I do have the same thoughts when people are following too close which happens a lot and especially when they think that I have an unnecessarily large distance from the car in front (with my settings at 4) and will cut in.

    It's nice to hear from someone who had a perfect delivery..usually people with perfect delivery don't have a reason to post. :)

    Do you get to test drive the vehicle before formally taking delivery of it?

    Can you confirm if you got the new triple camera on the mirror? Thanks!

    That was my impression too when I sat inside a Model X. Tesla has most things in a car nailed down, but interior storage and convenience really lags behind what one would find in a Honda Pilot or even a Honda Civic. Armrests make a big difference on long trips, as do seatback pockets (handy for books, iPad, and other tablets).

    I'd rate the Model X interior storage as adequate for the driver and front passenger, but mediocre to poor for the 2nd and 3rd row occupants.

    I was offered but declined. They assured me the SC guy checked it out prior to delivery. No problems so far.
