    Hi Model X Owners


    Just got the Model X in Dubai and had to refill the AC gas and calibrated the passenger window.

    i have to be honest if you pay attention the door rubbers and window Rubbers, as if they cut it with scissors or razor blades
    and the doors needs to be adjusted to line them up, they are mm off.

    looks like they are really in hurry to make them and wish the quality control should pay more attention

    but overall what a car i love it.

    Wow that's amazing, did you calibrate the window by yourself? Or does Tesla have a store out there?

    That is great. I assume it's an US spec'd car shipped there by a private party?

    @ Fares Almazrooei ...Mabrook...What a nice surprise..we the Canadian Neighbors don't have one yet. Dubai, Stuttgart and China do. Good for global economy.

    That's awesome. Wish you had gotten it ~2–3 weeks earlier, though! Would have loved to swing by and see it while I was down there. :p

    Given the Ingolstadt registration # on the German sighting, one could speculate that it's Audi. The other possibility would be Tesla themselves taking advantage of some of the test facilities located in Ingolstadt (because of Audi, but independent of Audi) but it still seems more likely that a Tesla owned X in Europe would show a Dutch registration.

    I saw Elon's Model S (or at least a Model S being used by Elon) in the UK before there were any deliveries to Europe. It was registered in Munich and Left-hand drive. Perfectly feasible this was Tesla owned.

    Wow great looking combination of exterior color and interior. Mubarak. Dubai has quite a car culture. How does the Tesla compare? Are people interested? How is the EV infrastructure across the UAE and gulf?

    That's great. I bet Model X will steal some attention out of all the Lambo and Ferrari in Dubai? :)

    Show us more pics grabbing Dubai's people attention.
