    The CEO of Citrix who was one of the six to take delivery at the launch event has posted a short video of Model X being delivered to his house:

    He also posted a picture with his daughter in the second row and dog in the third row.

    Looks fantastic! The red brake calipers are a nice touch of color to the side profile.

    Why does it still have a manufacturer's license plate on it?

    MFG tags are odd. Is this vehicle actually in his name or on 'loan' from TM? The whole Model-X rollout has been interesting....

    It has dealer plates, not manufacturer plates. Not sure why it wouldn't have just a temporary tag, but perhaps there was a delay in getting the registration filed.

    Yeah, Tesla's dealer number is 68106. Their manufacture number is 63277.

    My Sig X configuration includes this blue color, too; I have yet to see the new blue in person. I have to say it looks better in daylight (in this video) than it did under the stage lights during the release party.

    The blue is amazing in person. I saw it at the delivery event and decided to order our car in blue.

    Good to know! I was so on the fence between Sig Red and the new blue. My Sig S (now sold) was Sig Red and I loved it, but we've also got an MC Red P85D in the garage and the two reds really don't go together.

    Does the chrome trim in the back look a little "off"?

    This is the first picture I've seen of a dog in an X. That's one small step for a dog, one giant leap for dogkind!

    No, but the seam shows at different angles.

    Can't believe they finally got the doors to line up. ;)

    More seriously, that blue is really wonderful. Think it's my favorite. Black is also hot, though, and the Sig red surprised me. Normally hate red, but really loved that. Since no one is asking, though... have to say I'd go with the blue, but would want to have a look at the titanium silver in person first.
