4 of us (wife, kids, I) flew in for the X event from the East Coast. We have 2 Model S', which we love, and have an X reserved, so weren't going to miss this. Several thousand people there, lots of excitement in the air. The late start was tough on the kids, but they quickly forgot about their tiredness when the presentation started. I figured: the car is 2 years late, they can be 2 hours late with the presentation.
As always with 3-dimensional objects, the X looks much better in person than in photos or videos. You have to see it in person to appreciate the lines and the overall gestalt.
I won't rehash the feature set, but will relate the test ride experience. My daughter and I rode in the 2nd row. The panoramic windshield is stunning, even from the 2nd row. The overall feeling of spaciousness was impressive. The 2nd row seats (and ample legroom for me at 6'2") were very comfortable. I turned to view the 3rd row and was impressed by how much room was there, too. The driver punched it (from a rolling start) and reached 60 in a breathtaking flash. I have a P85D and was sure that this must be Ludicrous mode, but she revealed that it was just Sport mode. She then cornered at a good clip and the X felt like it was on the Hyperloop. The ride was over much too soon, but we felt very fortunate to have been on board, considering how many people were in attendance. My 9-year-old daughter was also over the moon that Franz Von Holzhausen, who was in the test drive queue for some reason, graciously stood for a picture with her.
A few weeks back, Elon said something to the effect that the X is arguably a better SUV than the S is a sedan, and I can now understand why.
We came away from the event intoxicated (not from the open bar, but from the X) and with absolutely no doubts about our reservation. Now the problem is just waiting patiently until configuration and delivery. And resisting getting two of these, too.
