    External dimension range for falcon wing door opening. I'm assuming there's a range on this and that their trajectory isn't fixed. If fixed, an arc concept would be awesome.

    How is glare handled with the panoramic canopy windshield?
    Can the visors cover the upper windshield effectively?

    - Surround view? (Probably no.)
    - LED headlights or laser headlights? (Probably LED.)
    - Production model pricing?
    - Current ramp-up plan?

    GVWR: Model X may qualify for 50% business write off. - Page 6

    Yeah I'm excited to get all the nitty gritty details too!

    But, yeah, this one stood out a little for me! ;)

    Ease of interior cleanup with a focus on breadcrumbs

    Hehe. Ease of interior cleanup with a focus on sticky rice is a much more important question. :)

    (But if we won't know at launch, Tesla Bjørn should be able to determine these qualities once he gets his Founders Model X.)

    Thank you for making a wiki.
    Do you think it's possible to move your wiki so that it is the first in a thread?
    Land also should it be a sticky.

    If someone could put 5-6" of snow on the roof, open the falcon doors, measure how much falls inside the car, that would be great:tongue:

    But seriously, its difficult to tell in the pictures, is there any mechanism like a lip or pop-up flap (i.e. sunroof deflector) that activates when the doors open to keep snow, rain, etc from blowing directly into the car when the falcon doors open? Are their drainage channels around the edges of the roof section of the door to channel away water?

    Not a res holder, yet, but someone who wants to be convinced to like those doors.

    In addition to crumb test, please take a handfull of dog hair and prerform same test :). Maybe some details on the synthetic (non-cow) seat material. Is it available in anything but white?

    Also, in addition to GVWR, is there an integrated brake controller?
    If not, what is the situation for a brake controller and harness? Is there a harness built in already? Does it allow for standard/existing brake controllers? Is there a standard 7-pin connector at the hitch?
    If so, does the brake controler have sway control (trailer braking or just vehicle slowing)? Any other features? Is regen active when towing? Is there a towing mode that changes the vehicle characteristics (e.g. regen, ride height, speed)?

    What are the permitted options for hitches? Is a load balancing hitch allowed? Is there a trailer "aiming hash" mark for the backup camera to make backing up to the trailer easier?

    Seems like the X and a popup camper could be a fun combo for regional travel. Thanks for any info you can provide. I didn't want to just add these to the wiki post because I might be the only wierdo who is interested in these things.

    Nope, but a trailer can. Also you could maybe stack a couple on the roof if you were willing to have only 1 FW door operational as per Elon Musk's tweet:

    "@Avron_p you can mount a rack to the roof via suction cups and still have one Falcon door work fine. Guaranteed up to 140 mph.
