    It's more like bait-and-bait than bait-and-switch, since the content of the OP is also a tease. ;)

    None of that appeals to me. But I suppose they will find some buyers. To each their own.

    I always thought that when you "tuned" a car you increased the performance of its engine (in this case, motor) and improved the handling with suspension modifications.

    Apparently "tuning" now means making minor cosmetic changes to the exterior and changing the wheels.

    I'm not talking about Saleen. The OP started this thread about a "tuned" X. The OP posted a video from Novitec Group. That video offers glossy pictures of minor cosmetic changes and aftermarket wheels. No narration, no text, no other information. But lots of dramatic music and video of an X being driven through the countryside and parked next to a solar array. In other words, meaningless marketing fluff.

    My post was made directly below the OPs post about that video. That is what I was commenting on.

    Whatever Saleen did to a Model S seems to have made no impact on the marketplace. Since Saleen made their video Tesla has repeatedly lowered S 0-60 times to an astonishing degree. Now that is what I call "tuning".

    Bits of gaudy plastic: not so munch
