    That is awesome. Don't know if it's $210 awesome, but it is awesome.

    Thanks for the link! I bought the red one, though I wish they had MC Red with the dark wheels like my P85D.

    Nice. Ordered the gray one. Now, the big questions... wrap? opticoat? tint? when will they have the premium center console? ;)

    I want to know when they will offer a battery swap so you can put in a battery and drive it with your phone via bluetooth.

    I wonder if any shops would actually perform those jobs on these models. LOL. I need to get mine blacked out to match the real deal.

    What would really be cool is if Tesla offered a 1:18 model exactly matching the actual configuration purchased by each Model S owner. They could charge a premium of like $500 since it would take a lot of work to create models with identical paint, interior colors, wheel selection, etc.

    I would love to see someone take one to an XPEL installer and see what they said. $500 for a full wrap?:)

    Oh, they have the carbon fiber trim and "current gen" seats.

    Let me know when i can get one in all black, with piano black trim and "next gen" seats in front and back. ;)

    Just got mine. I think it looks great. Is it worth $210? Probably not. But after federal and state incentives, and gas savings... ;)

    Oh I want one! About double what I am used to paying for my 1:18s though.

    Thanks for the pics! Mine should arrive by the end of this week...
    Btw, looks like the model does not have the autopilot Hardware? They must have planned that way back in 2014... :)

    I just got my red one.

    Price perception is value perceived. I think it is worth every penny. All doors open, fantastic detail inside and out, steering works, paint is flawless. I know some people who go out to eat and spend this much every week.

    I am very pleased. Tesla quality or above.

    I was going to buy a $200 dollar USB SSD, but it was out of stock. I kind of want to get one and put LEDs in the exterior lights, and maybe do some kind of simple interior lighting. That's if I can find small enough lights and a non destructive way to install them, and make it look good. For $210 I'm hesitant as an engineering student, but if it came in MC white...

    Anyway, do the seats fold? I think it would be neat to show off the space. Also, any chance the price will decrease?

    Ugh, I'm not the kind of person to make purchases on a whim, but I'm tempted. I've been following all things Tesla since 2013, the idea of buying something from them and contributing even the tiniest bit, before buying a Model 3, seems great. I think I just got a taste of the feeling shared by all the creators of the "need help deciding color, battery, sound, etc." threads.

    Put the Matchbox version in the trunk of this version, then put this version in the trunk of the real car, and you have a Tesla Matryoshka! :)

    @ commasign -- great model. My favorite color combo. Is that the new "midnight silver" or is it the old "gray" color?

    I would buy one in a heartbeat, but I just shelled out $100 for the 1/43 Schuco Pro.R resin model of the Tesla Model S P85 in Multi-Coat Red/Black with the silver turbine rims, so I can't justify $210 for a 1:18 scale...yet.
