More likely to get pulled over in an X?

    Do you think it's more likely to get pulled over while driving an X by a curious police officer? I'm sure this happens from time to time on newer or unusual vehicles. This would be really annoying, especially if you need to be somewhere on time. I guess this might be a good reason to put the front license plate on so you don't give them an excuse to make a stop they wouldn't have otherwise.

    The X, being less "flashy" (when the doors are closed) than the S probably won't get a lot of attention from the cops. It looks like an SUV/CUV/Mom-Mobile (which I very happily drive!)

    Yes, this has, indeed, happened to me in the early days of Model S. The cop admitted, "I just want to have a look at it."
