    Thought I would compile a list of things we want to know about that the launch video didn't make clear. Later, if there are specific threads for each, I can add links to them.

    1) Front door handles / operation -- does it have ability for manual operation, door handles like on the Model S? Is auto-present only on driver side or on both sides? What, if anything, controls the auto-present on the passenger side, if such feature exists? (is there a way to distinguish whether you have a legitimate passenger trying to get in or some stranger walking past the car?)

    2) Key fob. Pics please. What's the functionality?

    3) Spoiler operation. We know from media that it supposedly has 3 positions. Does it lay flat when car is off? Any other info?

    4) Front visor functionality. They can't lock into position like a typical visor when used in the front, though may have some semi-locking behavior at the pivot point to help hold it in position. How well do they work? How do they move to block the side window?

    5) Cargo area measurements -- back (seats up / seats folded/moved forward), frunk, under seat. Is there a covered cargo space in the back (as in the Model S rear child seat footwell)?

    6) What are the available phone plug adapters, and which ones come standard with the car vs needing to purchase separately?

    7) Door panels, cupholders, power points, and storage pockets. Probably just need some pictures here.

    8) Headlights and blinkers. LED? Blinkers? Daytime running lights? Would be nice to see a quick video of each combo (off, daytime running only, marker lights if that combo exists, low beam headlights, high beam headlights, tail lights, tail lights with brake pressed, blinkers front and rear).

    9) 2nd row seats. What are their adjustment options?

    10) Falcon wing doors. How many different ways can they be opened? (Button on fob? Button in UI? Button near door?) Can you open just one or the other? How far down do the windows go, and where are the controls for that?

    11) Touchscreen UI differences from Model S?

    12) Charging. kW? Charge door location? Same operation as in a Model S? Any other differences?

    See this video, the door handles do not extend like the S, you touch them and the doors open http://youtu.be/EAZUwSUP5qk

    3) Spoiler operation. We know from media that it supposedly has 3 positions. Does it lay flat when car is off? Any other info?

    From a Model X press release:
    Confirmed with inside sales that static spoilers are standard on 70 and 90. Active spoiler, mention in PR, only on P90.

    4) Front visor functionality. They can't lock into position like a typical visor when used in the front, though may have some semi-locking behavior at the pivot point to help hold it in position. How well do they work? How do they move to block the side window?

    5) Cargo area measurements -- back (seats up / seats folded/moved forward), frunk, under seat. Is there a covered cargo space in the back (as in the Model S rear child seat footwell)?

    The trunk does has deep area like the Model S rear facing child seat footwell.

    Since it didn't mention that the rear view mirror didn't have video, I'm guessing that isn't happening either.

    I was going to update the first post with links to answers for all the questions, but it's no longer editable. I think I've heard of folks making threads into more like wiki pages or something before, in order to support this kind of updating. How is that done?

    Can anyone comment on USB ports, power sockets, and vents for the 3rd row? Thanks!

    I think this is the 3rd row vent, though not 100% certain.

    Not related to your prior question (but rather one of my initial questions), but here's the vanity mirror demonstrated:
