    My wife just called me with a frantic voice stating:

    "I am stopped at the light at Kiluaea and Waialae Ave behind plate number 6416, Model X P90D!"

    It was driving Makai from towards Kahala Mall from near Wilson Elementary. She said it's 'gray', but I'm not sure if she knows the difference between Titanium and Midnight Silver. I'll try to find out when I get home and I can show her pictures of the colors.

    Enjoy!

    So that was your first (indirect) Model X sighting! It's amazing to see it in person.

    How exciting! I've only heard of 2 other sightings so far! Am thinking there must be at least 20 of them on the island by now.

    My co-worker said he's seen one at Waialae CC a few times. Maybe it's the same one.

    Me too! I just saw an X drive past me in the opposite direction going Makai on 22nd Ave near Kilauea Ave tonight. Then about 20 minutes later, I saw what I assume is the same X heading Waikiki bound on Kahala Ave near Black Pt Road. I couldn't tell exactly in the dark, but I'm pretty sure it was midnight silver, and it definitely was an X. The headlight/foglight pattern and rear lights on the X are unique. If I didn't have my son in the car and had to get somewhere, I probably would have flipped a U and stalked him for a bit. :love:

    I spotted one in Maui 2 weeks ago at King Kamehameha Golf club. It was a maroon founders model. Gorgeous!

    Yup...I saw another one this morning on H-1 West near Kaimuki. P90D, Signature red. Tag number 6856. I wasn't close enough to see if it had the underline indicating Ludicrous upgrade.

    I keep poking folks about the tables, but still waiting for an integrated forum update. Keep up the good logging!

    Weazl, Once the table capability is restored, you will have help populating the info back. Several of us have maintained lists of the reported cars. So, don't feel like you are alone. We can help.

    I live in the metro DC area and I see Model Xs all the time. I'm super jealous that you get to see Hawaii every day! :)
