    Actually, I was so surprised when my wife suggested reserving the X that I completely forgot to ask ! I'll have to call them back and ask about the possibility of a test drive and the delivery time frame. Haven't got the email to configure the car yet

    The Natick Mall store got a test drive Model X last night.
    They are still prepping it but a few of us got a demo.
    It is a P90DL. Apparently they can dial back with software
    and say "operate like a 70D" and (besides the tires and
    extra weight) it will limit the speed!

    Also, did they mention anything about how to schedule a test drive ( call Natick or the corporate offices) ? The Dedham store told me today that they might have a demo X next week, but I wasn't sure how much to believe that.
    Either way, this is good news.

    The car didn't have plates yet - it will probably take a few days for them to prep it.
    I'd guess you could schedule it from the Natick store.

    When I was at Watertown last Monday, they had two X's that had been used for the Meet Model X tour. After the tour the techs at Watertown were giving the two cars a once-over, re-calibrating, adjusting, updating software etc. When I picked up my X a few days later (I left it there for service while out of town, to address a couple wind noise issues), the cars were gone as they had been sent to Natick and I believe Dedham as test drive cars.

    I called both Defham and Natick. Dedham is scheduling test drives. They are completely packed over the weekend. The Natick response is that they are expecting a demo unit "soon".

    Sorry if you already answered this Peter, but how is the front license plate attached to the Model X? Did they have to drill through the bumper?
