    Just noticed these streaks in the UV coating near the top of the windshield. Not sure if it's a common occurrence but it looks like another defect to add to the long list of issues with the Model X.

    I have the same. My windshield has no ghosting though so no damn way I'm risking a replacement if it's a defect!

    I have some ghosting but I don't find it too bothersome. Not sure how it compares to others since the only other Model X I drove was during the day.

    This looks different. In my case the streaks are uniform across the top part of the windshield and disappear about half way between the top and the rear-view mirror. Also, I wasn't able to see them from outside, maybe I need to check under different lighting.

    Mine are horizontal and end in the upper tinted part. If I'm looking at what you're seeing, that is something on the glass.

    I had that on an old Acura and it drove me ballistic as moisture seemed to stick to whatever was on the window. I tried everything and eventually a rock cracked it and I got a new windshield.
