    A'Tuin, the world turtle that swims through space with four elephants on its back that in turn support the (flat) world, as explained by Terry Pratchet in the Discworld series.

    Furtle?

    I wouldn't spend more on xpel etc than you would if your car was regular production. Based on resale figures I've seen, Signature and founders editions don't fetch anything additional. I wish they did :)

    Calling ours "Blanco" - because I'm Spanish and it's white. :)

    I covered my Roadster with it. It's a one-of-a-kind Founders. That may or may not be worth something down the road. But 2017 fold flat AP2.0 and 100kWh battery & yes, I want to protect it from flying gravel. The roads are covered right now because of all the storms we've had over the last three months.

    Both my cars are covered in film and nano coating. I'm not suggesting you don't do it, merely suggesting I wouldn't do it just because it's a founders edition.

    I wonder if that is usually because they are usually early builds of each model (which might mean more issues/less standard items than later builds)? Not sure, but that line of thinking would cross my mind if I was in the used market looking

    Very nice Bonnie!

    Earlier in the thread you mentioned opting for the 5-seater in order to accommodate dogs. How has this configuration worked for them?

    Well I've only had it 24 hours, but they've been in it today. I bought mats for the back from Lloyds to protect everything.. Bonus is the air suspension - on the lowest setting, my semi-handicapped dog can jump in (vs. me picking up an 80+ lb dog). They're fascinated by the falcon wing doors, a little taken aback by the hatch opening and closing without me right there. But they're dogs. This will be the new normal for them by tomorrow. :)

    Congrats Bonnie! We had the X as a loaner for several days and our 90#+ Berner was totally freaked out by the doors. I am sure she would have gotten used to them over time. The desire to 'go with us' versus staying home would have been too big to pass up!
