    Some obvious fit/finish issues, but I took delivery of THREE Model X today.

    I found them at a local store & bought all three they had. I'm sure you'll be able to find on eBay (that's where Model S and Roadster versions are always available).

    There goes Bonnie again, buying up all the supply and creating a huge demand. :p Nice find! At $1.09, it's quite the bargain if you can find them!

    Yeah! And she's probably the one selling them on Ebay! (Of course she does need to pay for that Founder's X...) :)

    I just need to find 3 people willing to pay about $35k per Hot Wheels car and I'm covered.

    If you're gonna pay $35K I assure you Bonnie will throw in the sunshade of your choice!

    Yes, but you may have difficulty getting inside to install the sunshade. Is that a deal-breaker?

    On its way to PDX, delivery date of 2/20 - 3/6. Since I'm out of town until the evening of 2/21, you just know it will be available earlier than later.

    So the wrap ... a wrap won't protect the paint a well as Xpel Ultimate. The shop highly recommended I have Xpel applied. It's a Founders vehicle & protecting the original paint is the goal.

    So it is going to stay white.

    But we can play 'Guess the name!', keeping in mind that my Roadster earned the name 'Baby Turtle' here on the forums, way back when. (Some of you know that story.)

    Crush (finding nemo) or The Flash (as an offset)

    Nice to see you re-join the X driver's club
