    This is cool. This seems to be shorten version of what they did a year ago at the factory (shown below). Hopefully, they will release the full demo version to everyone later on.

    This makes me wish I had an X even more. What neighbor WOULDN'T smile when seeing this?

    Gotta love the Tesla engineers. :)

    Does this require an update?

    I spotted this a couple of days ago when 2.50.15 came across. Unfortunately, my X was in for annual service! :( Couldn't mess with it until today.

    Turns out it is broken in 2.50.15 anyway (code "holiday") and only goes up to the point where the front doors start to open and crashes... this is what happened in @fiksegts first video. Tesla fixed it in 2.50.114, new code "modelxmas" added.

    Merry Model Xmas! (Tesla Model X Holiday Easter Egg)

    Is it bad to do this a lot, seems to put a lot of stress on the car?

    Can't imagine they would let you do it if it did... I have done it a bunch of times so I hope not!

    I wondered the same. I heard some creaks. They were drowned by the cheers of my kids and my father! I think they would be less excited if Santa's sleigh had landed in our driveway.

    I tried it out at a school that was closed for the day (wanted an open area). A family was walking by with their kids going to the playground - they ran over to see the show. Their parents had seen the video of the MX Easter egg earlier that day and couldn't believe they stumbled upon one in person. Kids absolutely love it!

    Tesla might disable it if they see an increase in SC appointments

    Getting very frustrated. Did exactly as told, Tess rolls down the windows, turns on the running lights, then nothing. And the screen in the car shows the "It was all a dream." But no show. And I've tried it in two different open locations. Nothing!

    Did you press the lock button on the fob once all doors were closed?

    Make sure there is LOTS of room all around the vehicle. If the parking sensors detect any obstructions the show will not begin.

    Just did ours, typed in modelxmas and stood back and hit the top of the key fob once. The windows rolled down and the music started, my wife and I were laughing while it was flapping the FWD. to much fun!

    Tried it first in my driveway which has about 6-8', not counting the curb. Second time was in the center of a cul-de-sac with at least 12+' on all sides. Not sure if where I stand counts in the dimensions.
