    So I just finished a 24hr test drive before I order my X. I noticed after picking it up at night that the upper mesh portion of the dash reflects a pattern that adds a haze to the windshield. Took me a minute to see it, but it felt like the windhsield wash just hazy at first.

    Driving it yesterday in overcast conditions, it was even worse and you can see the mesh reflection clearly. The line where the mesh meets the vinyl dash is also right in the line of sight.

    I've seen some mentions here and there in old threads, but does anyone have a solution? Ive seen the polarized glasses rec, but can't wear them at night.

    The dash reflection is an issue that's been reported here, it's just the way the vehicle is designed.

    I assume you're already aware of the bigger windshield problem, and that's the ghosting problem on the X, which still hasn't been resolved.

    Is Tesla replacing ghosting windshields?

    I did notice the ghosting in the loaner I had at night. Nothing during the day other than the dash reflection. Both are definitely annoying, I just found the dash reflection TERRIBLE given how high it reflects up onto the windshield directly in the line of sight.

    The dash reflection is especially annoying once you are locked on it, as it's then hard to look beyond. I don't have ghosting, but I do have the rainbow effect. I experimented with my seat positions a few times and apparently I've adjusted to both daylight situations as neither bothers me unless I'm looking for them, although admittedly very distracting at first. Sort of like the size of the rear view mirror....had to adjust to that as well.

    We don't have a problem with ghosting, but the dash reflection in the X is really annoying. Odd, too, since my Model S is fine in that regard.

    Haven't tried polarized sunglasses yet - sounds like a good idea.
