Question on FWD in tight garage

    I did a test drive in an X yesterday. Since I live so close to the Tesla showroom, I requested to drive it home to test out how the X fits into my garage. Here are some pictures.

    Probably because of the height limit of garage, it looks kind of a tight squeeze to get into the X when opening the FWD by itself (letting the sensors stop the door). The Tesla person had to manually override the FWD to open it up. Only then it seems the FWD is usable in my garage.

    Are there any solution to this? I am thinking the SRS is capable of location-based, so the car knows when to lower or raise itself. Can the FWD be train to do the same? Like when parked in my garage, it knows to open to a preset height and still has the sensors actively monitor for obstacles?

    I have the same problem with a narrow garage and overhead door opener. Yes, summon may be the answer, especially if we end up with an X and a 3.
