    Model X arrived 3/18. Today 3/19 we’ll try an Augusta Maine Supercharger test about 9:30am. We’re also trying an E-ZPass toll test on the way there, I’m going to try putting the transponder in the front cubby of the frunk, looks like a good place.

    Front cubby of the frunk? You mean inside the frunk? :eek:

    Yes, but toward the front by the lights (not much between there and the back of the air intake). Did not work on first try but it was tucked up high behind the trim and more underneath the metal hood because I did not bring any tape. I'll try again once I can affix the tag to the hard plastic between the two lights,

    3/20 will stop at Bowdin to check out the charger there somewhere around 2-3pm, then brief stop at the Augusta Supercharger 4-5pm just because. Actual times on twitter @gwgans

    Congratulations, it's been a long wait for you.

    Yes "Bowdoin", thumbs!
    >650 miles in two days: no charging problems at home, at Supercharger, at J1772. Only door problems were of my own doing and resolved with manually recycling the door (open/close by hand). No luck with the toll tag in the frunk cubby.

    Does the toll tag work inside the car? I am used to just holding mine up to the glass. And of course, congrats on the car!

    Manual says it won’t, some have reported success. I just got a front plate tag (but don’t have the front plate mounted yet). I’ll hold it up by the mirror on my next trip as a test.

    About 3:30 PM will be checking out the MOFGA charger since I’ll be over that way. Won’t be there long, just a test.

    Congratulations! And great to hear you aren't plagued by problems like some on TMC. My X is at Dedham now, pickup late this week if all goes well.

    More miles driven. Tested charger at MOFGA, got 30 amps. I found something wrong: there is a mesh flap beneath each front seat which is partly loose (added to Tesla Model X Checklist ). Thanks PeterK, I hope yours is also well cared for (and don’t forget to look under the seats).

    @Gwgan -- very excited that you've got your X! I hope you'll take a run down to Portland sometime.

    Going to Mass on the 30th and back end of the following week. Will keep you posted on details. Will want to check out charging in the Fore St garage.

    Details are last minute, but I'll be checking out the Fore st garage charger 12-1-ish 3/30 in the X on my way to visiting in Newton before a morning Dedham visit. I'll don't know when, probably mid afternoon, but I'll be driving back north the next day. Seabrook, too.
