    Yes, of course. Try changing it to "007".

    From the user manual on page 110:

    Naming Your Vehicle
    To further personalize your Model X, you can name it. The name you give your Model X will appear in the mobile app. To name your Model X, touch the Tesla “T” at the top center of the touchscreen, then touch Name Your Vehicle.

    When you save, Name Your Vehicle is replaced by the name you provided. You can touch the name at any time to rename your Model X.

    Yes, press the T at the top center of the center console. After it opens to the window that has your car and the version of software, press the upper right corner of the window. This should give you a box to post a name. For fun while you are there, try typing the number 42 and Enter.

    Do you know what the practical MAX number of characters is? Say you used 15, would that scroll off/be truncated on the display/app?

    So my neighbor names his car "Sue". People asked if it's his wife's name. "No. I'm a lawyer"

    See, when you get past a certain age, you get to tell really, really old jokes. Then you get banned.
