"Meet Model X: Exclusive Viewing"

Thanks. I ordered a P90D with performance. Tesla has been going around the East coast arranging test drives of MS. They first did an event in Red Bank, NJ headquartered in a hotel. I subsequently received an offer to bring the car to my house for a test drive. But nothing for the X.
Depends on your configuration: P90D (early 2016) comes before 90D (mid 2016) which comes before 70D (mid to late 2016).

At this point, when you'll get your car is unknown, but based on the available data, it appears that P90Ds with the Premium Upgrades Package may be moving along through production faster than those without it. I say this based on what we've seen in Model X tracker with VIN assignments and estimated delivery dates.

I configured my 90D on December 13th and the order was confirmed on December 20. It's a 90D (without the "P" upgrade) but with everything else but the 22-inch wheels. My best guess is that I'll get my car in June or July. It could be earlier or later, but that's my guess. I do have a DS (Delivery Specialist) assigned, but he has been no more specific than "mid 2016".
 
Should Tesla prioritize Model 3 potential customers instead of Model X actual customers for any Model X related events?
The mismatch marketing should be part of excellent customer service?

I think it's totally correct direction that Tesla satisfies existing Model X customers first, then soon tobe X customers, then potential X customers, then potential 3 customers, and finally the mass unknown and non-potential customers.
That's not what they're doing here. Model X "customers" would be those with confirmed orders, Model X "soon to be customers" would be those with refundable deposits but no commitment to order yet. With the test drive events, Tesla has acknowledged specifically that they're prioritizing "soon to be customers" - those who have reserved a Model X but not confirmed their orders yet. I'm not saying it's wrong. People like me are already "on the hook" and Tesla needs/wants to get more of these low hanging fruit (reservation holders) picked.

But it does feel a little like we're being "penalized" for being crazy/dedicated/excited enough to confirm orders without a test drive.

Was there anything you had to do to get a DS assigned? I confirmed Dec 8th for fully loaded 90D and haven't heard anything yet. Should I be bugging them?

There seems to be a pattern based on where you intend to take delivery as to whether you hear from a DS early or not. I finally called delivery last week and asked them who my DS is and what's the status of my car. DS called me within the hour with the most facile pablum of "early 2016" for my car. It was fairly clear to me that she probably hadn't even bothered to check the status of my car in SalesForce as my inside sales rep was able to tell me more about the status of my car 2 weeks ago than she was willing/able to tell me last Friday.

Well, I don't know if it was coincidence or not but I did e-mail one of the senior guys at the Westchester store with questions about the X and whether they had delivered any yet (he was the guy who took us on our S test drive in 2013). I'm considering switching delivery to Syosset as they have delivered several Xes already. The next day I had an e-mail from someone who says he's my DS and he works at the Westchester store. I have no idea if these two issues are related.

But also, I'm not sure whether having a DS matters for us since deliveries of the 90D are still pretty far out (likely July/August time frame). I've e-mailed my DS twice in the past week (about the "Meet the X" events) and still received no reply. I may give him a call at some point to see if he can get us into any of the local X events.
 
I have a confirmed order for a 70D and I got an invitation to the event in Chicago yesterday. The only two problems are that I live in Minneapolis and I will be in Hawaii at that time. Hopefully they will have a Model X at my local SC some time soon. Given the fact that I am getting a 70D, driving one before my car is built should not be a problem.
 
So tomorrow is the day of the event. Probably won't get a lot of time to ask a ton of questions so want to prioritize top 5 questions:

1. How quickly are fixes to issues found in the field incorporated back into the production line?
2. What is the current pace of production? Has their been a temporary slowdown?
3. When do you anticipate 90d's beginning production?
4. Is the extra sensitivity in the falcon wing doors a hardware or software issue?
5. ?

What do you guys think?

i think #3 is the only question that they will respond too and the answer will be the same as you can get from calling them today.

4 Model X Production VINs from Factory Event

Thanks. Looks like 4 MXs there? Or more?

Just returned. Got eXcited when I realized all 4 Production Model X's on display have a higher VIN then my 41X: 000444, 000445, 000447, 000448. Here is each VIN plate followed by its color. Someone please add them to the database. Thanks! I also learned there will be a total of 16 of these initial marketing production X's touring the country in the coming weeks.
