    Hi Guys,
    This is my firsts post. I just ordered a model X and I would like to know if the build quality has improved in the last few month. We see a lot of negative post or reports online about early builds or builds around January to April.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Docz and jrichey. It makes me feel better to read that. I am vin 158XX and I am expecting to receive it late September. I am looking forward to it.

    I recently ordered a Model X due for late September delivery as well. I too noticed the avalanche of negative press the Model X had early on, especially in mid-to-late April. It's extremely encouraging to hear from owners of recent deliveries that the build quality looks to have stabilized. Add in another couple months and the late September deliveries should be in pretty good shape overall.

    My wife and I are stoked. This waiting stuff is tough! :)

    IMO, the reporting in the media tends to be 6-12 months behind what is actually happening right now. If there were production issues 6 months ago, they will start reporting it now, even though they have been resolved for a few months..

    VIN 29XX, mid-April build date - no issues at all. Completely happy (except for the nail that punctured my left rear tire last week - can I blame Elon for that?)

    So no problems with the Falcon wing doors guys? Sensors working perfect? I'd love to hear from people who have kids and use the doors on a regular basis.

    I have mine since June 14th and overall, very happy with it. While taking delivery, I did noticed some door alignments issues which the DS noticed and told me that service center will call for an appointment and will fix it. I haven't got a call yet, but not worried. I have 4 years of warranty for that. The door sensors are perfectly working. I have even test them with me standing close by and it does, what it supposed to do. The car is fun to drive and we shall be happy with our decision to purchase one.

    Do we have signs that double vision is improved on later VINs? I thought this was inherent to the design and thickness of the windshield?

    (And yes, finally convinced my wife to get one - ordered today)

    My VIN is very closed from you and hopefully receiving delivery next week. Any issues with build and mechanical quality?

    @tomtx37 Literally zero issues, after I received it. Now it did have a locking mechanism issue when it arrived in Orlando on 7/5 which took 2+ weeks to fix but that was before I took delivery. At delivery and since, zero issues and rides like a dream.
