    If you were to configure today, given same options as on Model S, what would your Model X look like?

    We'll probably go for the S85 fully loaded, with leather, and a white exterior. Unless the P85 is required for some kind of enhanced tow package.

    S85 or S100, no P for me, use the money for all other things that is nice to have, and I might use more than ones for showing of.
    (I do not dragrace, I do not drive 0-60 for fun, I have kids and dog in the car, I will keep my battery at 10-75% charge all the time. (Long life))

    I'm hoping for Adaptive Cruise Control and luxury second row seating.

    The original parameters were to use the MS design studio. I too would take the S100 and the ACC if available. Fully loaded I guess, but not the Performance unless it's tied to towing in some manner.

    I would go with maxing it out with 3rd row seats and having a dvd player in the back and a P110+ (Higher version of P85+) Also a center console

    Personally I like the idea of the falcon doors, I do not want a cookie cutter SUV and I'm confident if Tesla does this configuration it will be done correctly. Not sure what options I want, need to see what is available and need to drive it.

    Well I'm definitely hoping for new paint options. The model S colors are mostly too dark and staid, imho. That Tesla has indicated they're marketing this model more towards women makes me hopeful in this regard.

    Other than exterior color I'd probably go with the larger battery, not the P version, 19" cyclone wheels, gray interior, matte trim, a wall connector, Primacy tires. Kind of waffling on the dual chargers. Our home setup would be on a 50A circuit so the only time we'd need it is at a J1772 station that had more than 40 amps available. That's a rare duck so probably not worth it. The performance should be plenty good so I have no real lust for the performance adds.

    You may not have noticed but when you buy anything for a male it is drab and dark, very few bright colors. I love color so sometimes hard to find clothes that have lots of color. Not sure why this is the case, so men like colors. I would have loved to see the Model S in a metallic blue similar to the sapphire blue available on the Jaguar XK8 I used to own.

    Maybe, she has not seen the color possibilities yet.
