    I would not have any concerns as yellow with black trim is sharp in my humble opinion. Of course yellow is second to Twilight Blue ;)

    I would have been all over this car had i not bought mine a couple months ago (Radiant Red Sport, 835). In fact, my car is being completely redone right now by Al & Ed's, converting the front and rear to 2.5, painting it yellow, and doing the interior black and yellow. Their price was very reasonable (far lower than Avio), and they have a lot of experience on these cars. I'll post pics when it is finished. West Hollywood

    The pics of this car show no side markers like most Sports. Was that that how the early Sports came? Also, while I love yellow, this is a LOT of yellow. I would mix it up with some carbon.

    It was a bit inconsitent at first.
    #502 (the very first Sport) didn't have them.
    #549 DOES have them.
    #582 does not
    #659 does not
    #683 does not
    #686 does not
    #704 DOES
    #718 does not
    #725 DOES
    #728 DOES
    #753 DOES
    etc...

    I think later on (e.g., 2.5s) they were always there when it was a sport model.

    The Sport script on the back is a better way to tell.

    Excellent price! With a hardtop and even with microfiber seats, that's an excellent price for a 2010 Sport!

    By the way, I took this (blurry phone) picture today:

    I always thought of Tesla yellow as very light, but I was surprised to see that the Ferrari yellow was even more light (closer to white.)
    The Tesla yellow has an ever so slight hint of orange...

    It didn't sell before, so they re-listed it with a higher starting price?
    ($83K before, $89K now...)

    Collectors item now. Prices are going up! Tesla yellow was my first choice but I was too cheap to spring for the extra cost.

    I've been thinking about getting this car(getting very impatient waiting for the model s). I could maybe deal with the flashy color, but I hate the microfiber seats.

    Recovering seats in leather is pretty easy. Al & Eds can fix that, and more, for you. Maybe you could even order leather replacement seats from Tesla.

    As smorgasbord said, don't let the seats stop you, that should be one of the easiest things to change.

    Some of us with leather wish we'd gotten microfiber; I'm sure you could find somebody to trade with.

    i'm almost done with my 2.25 upgrade, and since i was doing that i decided to repaint my car from radiant red to... yellow (my fave). and i decided to redo the interior from saddle (tan) to black and yellow, change it to a double din, put in al & ed's CF air ducts, etc. here are the seats and a few other pics. all of the work has been done by al & ed's. i will post more pics when it is done in about a week.

    Yeah, too bad #683 came on the market a few weeks late - would have saved you some painting.

    #683 now restarted again. This time the starting price dropped, but there's a hidden reserve price. Current bid is $66k (reserve not met)
