    - Dash Cam: Blackvue is good or something a little cheaper & simple Lukas ARA (wouldn't worry about 4K, the 1080P is plenty clear)
    - Xpel Clearbra to protect that paint, at least a partial - recommend you do this right after delivery
    - Check your area for what types of charging stations, your X will come with an adapter to fit the common level 2 but not the DC fast chargers Tesla store has several or use EVSEadaptors
    - add-ons from EVAnnex, Topfit on Amazon, and once your referral credit is applied few items at the Tesla store should be snagged or use most of it for the wall connector charging station
    - Can't help you on insurance but can't hurt to call around for quotes so you'll have it all in place when it's time

    If you hear a beep when exiting the vehicle you have accidentally triple clicked your key fob.

    All vehicle occupants need to stop drop and roll or deal with possible decapitation from the FWD at worst or blunt force trauma as a best case.

    :D

    Hey @SteveLewis

    Congrats on the order. With regards to insurance here in the UK Tesla have an agreement with Direct line and from my research they seem to be the cheapest so given them a look.

    The dashcam is a good idea, however, Elon has suggested on Twitter that an update will be coming soon that enables the existing cameras as a dashcam "I'm guessing" though the app so it may be worth waiting but then again "soon" could be anytime.

    If you find anywhere in the northwest who do xpel wrapping let me know, contacted a few and non of them will touch clear wrapping only offered me to change the colour of the car which i personally felt was a sign they are crap :)

    With regards to home charging, i dont think you can go wrong with the Tesla WC but if your looking for an untethered model i'd suggest looking at the EO mini which is what i'm going for:

    EO MINI HOME CHARGER

    Patience while waiting for it - and don't let the forums scare you - the vehicle is AMAZING and the little flaws will be easily fixable.

    I cannot second the notion of a wrap more - So glad I full body wrapped my X's and my wife's Audi S5 - while it is a similar cost of a paint job, the ease of maintenance and the knowledge that rocks and dings won't chip your beautiful, $100K+ vehicle is, in my opinion, worth a lot!

    I did the Blackvue DR 750 - bought it on Massdrop for like $250 when they had it available - the 1080 is totally fine, 4K for a dash cam is overkill in my eyes - but if you have it, spend it as you can't take it with you!

    Enjoy!

    Actually a single click would have done it as factory default.

    Not sure if you are aware, they’ve since added new sensors in the speaker grill so we longer get decapitated. It now gives you few seconds to react and if you don’t move away the door doesn’t close. If you move away within 2 sec or so it starts closing.

    INTERESTING.... yes even triple click doesn't do the job - I couldnt even imagine how bad leaving single click would go.

    I am wondering if the new FWD sensors could be a paid refit?

    Here are some interesting adds for you to enjoy your Model X.


    I have found some new owner to enjoy this item here.
    Any folding rear trunk mat for 6/7 seaters?
    Sincerely hope it can help you.
