    Because you are just like any other unoriginal Bay Area parent of 4 who get wet dreams about a model x.

    Just note you will need to plan your family road trips around superchargers, and assuming they are not all taken on the popular routes like 80 east to Tahoe/Reno

    Save yourself some money by putting that 90k into a down payment for a 1 bedroom Waikiki vacation condo and rent it out.

      Lol spot on. Although Hawaii condo cash flows aren’t as great.

      Why are cash flows not as good? Me and the misses looking at a 1-2 rental in Maui

      Based on my early research last year, lot of people were just about breaking even after expenses and occupancy rates.

    People can only agree with you have they already have a model x? :/

    Real points: Teslas have some of the highest safety ratings out there and the falcon wing seats of the X are perfect for carseats.

      Also real points. Compared to cars in same class it has similar or worse safety. The falcon wing doors are known to be very unreliable and prevent you from having a roof rack

      True, if a roof rack is important, it's a no-go. The lower center of gravity due to the battery doesn't help that much huh?

    3k a month mortgage in the bay area???? How much did you put down and how wide is your definition of bay area?

      I own this house for relatively long time. I know these days prices are different than they were 5 years ago.

      Haha, I do own BMW now and I LOVE it. It is absolutely awesome car. The all electric, doors-up and over air updates are features why I'm considering model x.

    I think it's too expensive for what you get.

    Seems like you just want a 7 seater. Why not a minivan or a larger suv by a cheaper brand?
