I took delivery yesterday of our MX at the Fremont factory. I don't have a lot of time to do a full write up at the moment, but I thought I would share some of the major points. -- specific to our car -- * Sunshade was included in the frunk. The delivery orientation person said it was the first he had seen, but I know umeshunni also received one on Saturday. * I ordered the towing option, but I am still very unclear on what I really got for my money over the accessory hitch for $550 less. It seems to be the same removable receiver and I really doubt that they are actually doing anything different in terms of bracing for the mounting hole. For some reason I though that Tesla was integrating some sort of trailer brake controller into the car for this price, but all you get is a pigtail wiring harness which you would use to wire to your controller and then add your own 7-pin or other trailer connector. Not the clean solution I would expect from Tesla. I could be wrong on this - the rep who was helping me seemed to know very little in this area. Perhaps this pigtail is for wiring between the 7-pin and the car. I will be ordering the service manual soon... * Overall, the surfaces of the body, windows, and interior were very clean and unscathed. A few scratch-like marks on the paint turned out to be glue-like stuff that came off. * The glass sealant and black rubber sealing trim does look a bit sloppy in various spots. I think some of this is from design and material choices that were made, but some of it is from application and assembly. * The aligment of the four side doors to each other and the fixed body panels was rather poor in many axes - gaps between panels are very different on the driver and passenger side. + The driver door sticks out laterally about a 1/8" + The passenger door is about 3/16" in relative to the FWD. + The driver door to FWD door gap is almost non-existent at the start of the window, and about normal at the bottom. + The lateral offset of the rear quarter panel window chrome trim to the FWD is on the order of 1/4" on both sides, which is pretty huge. The glass sections themselves are better aligned. I'm not sure how this can be so far off. * The biggest issue at the moment is that the driver's side door does not self close properly unless it is manually or automatically closed from a full swing. If you let the door do the soft-draw latch routine it will draw the door to flush, then move it out about a half inch again and stop. At that point the car warns you that the door is open. You need to swing it open and re-close it hard in order to have it latch initially with out using the draw-tighten functionality. The rep tried resetting the door calibration many times, but it did not help at all. He then took the car to service and they looked at it for an hour or so and were not sure what was wrong, and said they would probably need to take the door off to figure out what was wrong. Ultimately, I was given the choice to accept the car or leave it there. I chose to take the car and they made a priority appointment for me at the Burlingame SC to get the issues fixed. I was told that the backlog was much less at Burlingame than at the factory SC, so this would be the quickest way to get everything taken care of. -- comments general to all MXs -- * I have seen it posted here somewhere before, but there is definitely something funky going on when the second row seats move wherein the front seats get moved forward (normal), but do not return to their original positions (not normal). The rep did something from the passenger seat on the touchscreen to open the FWD or move the second row seat behind him and I saw his seat go forward but then never return later. He claimed he had never seen that happen before. I'm a little baffled at how SpaceX can land a rocket stage on a barge at sea perfectly but someone at Tesla can't get what should be a weekend microcontroller project right. * I thought it would be nice if the rear hatch height memory settings could be location-specific. The rep said they would forward that on. * I think it would also be useful if the Bluetooth device affinities were dependent on whose user preferences are loaded in the car. If I'm the driver, I want my phone to be linked to the car. If my wife is driving, it should be her phone. Seems pretty logical to me. * I was listening to Slacker for the first time on the ride back from Fremont to San Francisco. I definitely heard the audio glitch several times even though the LTE signal as was always 4-5 bars. I also noticed the touchscreen UI animations when pushing buttons were getting laggy and had a low frame rate sometimes. My guess is that the CPU is busy doing something, but I'm not sure what. Perhaps it is downloading a bunch of stuff initially OTA? * I didn't have time to bring any lossless music on USB, but listening to music I know on Slacker at least I wasn't very wowed by the HiFi audio in this car yet. I'm not sure if the car does any speed-dependent equalization, but it would probably help considerably. The road noise (tires, wind) in this car is about average to me. I feel like my friend's Audi Q5 might be quieter, for example. If you have enough road noise, it is hard to ever appreciate good audio, IMHO. I am on 20" wheels with Michelin Latitude Sport tires. * I drove back to San Francisco around 6pm or so and the sun was directly in the driver's side of the windshield most of the way home, a bit above where the tinting gradient begins. I think they struck a good balance with the windshield tint, but I will definitely be keeping sunglasses in this car - I did not bring them this time, and the small shade wasn't able to block the sun in this case. * The sun made me notice another issue - the chrome "wings" which support the side view mirrors are dead flat on top and when aligned with the sun correctly make for a very intense reflection. I will definitely be putting some sort of black film on the top of these. * The mesh that covers the forward half of the top of the dash has a quite visible reflection onto the windshield on sunny days. The rest of the dash is far less noticeable since it does not have the mesh texture. Very hard to do anything about this since it appears that vents and speakers lie below parts of this mesh, which would prevent covering it with something less reflective.
