    I can't enter (= edit) the wiki post!

    (It's happened before - for whatever reason the "edit" button is not visible to me). The question I have is:

    *Can we have a rim bolt measurement or some other determinant to learn if there is or isn't interchangeability between the Models S and X?

    Since I couldn't directly upload a photo to the wiki, above, I'm posting it here and will link to it. (In answer to the question of how far does the 2nd row window open.)

    In relation to charging, can a HPWC be used for both a model S and X?

    My apologies if this happened -- that wasn't my intent. Suggestion: If this can happen, it seems we need to post that we need a mutex on the wiki and then do a notification afterwards.

    Yes. My S charges happily at 80 and the X at 72.

    Added to the wiki (second post, above). We set this up so that everyone could edit the one post, instead of having to read through many posts. 'Crowdsourced FAQs', if you will :).

    I've just added the question " What is the width and the length of the Model X?" as I couldn't find any official numbers on that. Overhere in tight European parking slots every inch (or better cm) counts :smile:

    Thanks for clarifying. I was baffled by the comments over FWD definitions since the first line of the post defined the acronyms use in the wiki.

    I have never owned a fwd car but tomorrow at ten I will own a car with FWDs and AWD.

    In another life I was a USAF Aircraft Maintenance Officer. If you want to learn to speak acronym spend time in the fighter aircraft maintenance world. In that world acronyms become words that have lost connection with the original definition. One of my favorites was the toilet on the B1 bomber; FART, Fully Automated Reusable Toilet.

    Back on topic. This thread is an excellent idea.

    Most ICE vehicles have differentials or the like that hang down. A google search for a sportage list the clearance at 6.8". Search: sportage ground clearance - Google Search

    Does anyone know the distance from the drivers seat to the ground on both the S and the X at the same setting? Im trying to figure out how much higher up of a ride it is.

    Very good points. I suppose we are seeing Elon's tendency to be late in some communication (virtually every special event) and yet too far ahead in others (I'm thinking of tweets here) that feels almost like a split personality. Hopefully it's "people are smart - get the idea out there and let them figure it out". The two sides to a coin thing with a very strong leader - you get the focused vision and obsession, as well as the foibles (insert stronger descriptor of your choice).

    wow, is that width accurate? That's wider than a suburban by 9 inches, and wider than my GL350 by 5 inches. I don't think I can fit one of these and my GL in the garage at the same time. I realize the mirrors are a lot of that width and the model S is only a few inches smaller, but wow. Regardless of the FWD you still have to open the driver's door, and I think the only place in town I'll be able to visit is the Costco parking lot.

    I can't imagine that the width is accurate --- it would be about a foot and a half wider than my existing 2008 Mercedes E350 --- and highly unlikely to fit through my garage door (house was built in 2005).

    Seems like measurement requests are slow

    I'm assuming that 81.6" is outside of wheel to wheel and 89.4" is including body curves and mirrors so there would be an in between number for just the body with mirrors folded.
