The Model X looks weird IMO... the roof is too bubbley. The rear doors are silly also

the argument for the rear doors is that they can be fully opened in a tight car park, a bonus if you have children in restraints in the back seats

2 Teslas inside Botany town Centre, opened up so you could get in and have a look. Very nice inside, but not a kid friendly place....
I think the Model X looks better in person than on paper. However those doors are just trouble. They work fine when you have limited space next to you, but I would hate to see the result trying to open them in a multi story car park. Can you imagine the scratches you would get from the low hanging fire sprinklers.

Nothing wrong with those but the snob factor was the killer I think

Good point! Things have been a bit quieter on the spotting front lately, so I've just removed the year from this thread for now...
