    I have until October 3rd to change my mind but I'm really on the fence. If they still had the original dolphin grey it would be a no brainer since that color catches my eye every time I see one drive past and makes me sad I chose the dark blue (black in much light) on my current car. But the darker new grey I'm not as taken by. I like it but I like the new blue too...

    One thing I'm wondering is which shows the dirt least? I'm not into washing my car all the time so it's going to get dusty...

    Buy white or silver then. It's counter intuitive, but none the less true, that the lighter the color, the less it will show dirt.

    This is my exact setup. I think it looks classy and sleek. Its a matter of personal preference. If you want loud, get the blue. Can't miss either way, every tesla is beautiful.

    You sound exactly like me...I got the old dark blue in 2013, but immediately told everyone if I ever got another one it would be dolphin gray. I was so sad when they changed it... But I still ordered the midnight silver without seeing it in person first. Imagine my delight when I saw one at a Tesla event in the sun, and saw the incredible amount of blue flake!

    The new blue is too bright for me on the S, although I love it on the X. Midnight Silver hides dirt very well.

    Midnight Silver all the way!! Having had both dark cars (black) and Silver, I feel that the Silver is much easier to keep looking good. Good luck with your choice.

    I got the new blue and love it. I also constantly get compliments on the color - people like it a lot.

    I've had black, charcoal gray, silver metallic for many years. I got tired of the same boring lack of color. But I also didn't want anything too flashy, like the red. The blue is beautiful and interesting.

    Silver. The current blue color looks very average when it gets a bit dirty. Do you really want your new Tesla looking like a Honda Accord?

    Dislike fallen 88? The OP asked for opinions. If you are going to get your feelings hurt from anyone who doesn't prefer your color choice, maybe just stay out of the thread!?!

    Midnight Silver and Deep Blue are currently tied for number 1 with 21% each in the delivery spreadsheet FWIW. I love Midnight Silver and if I was picking the color in my family that's what I would have chosen.

    I had the dolphin grey with my first Model S but opted for the deep blue with the second. No regrets at all, and I get compliments on the color every single time I'm out driving, even though this area is flush with Teslas. I do think the grey shows less dirt than the blue.

    I think you're the one with your feelings hurt. I merely showed my disagreement with your opinion and assessment of the blue color. That's it, move on.

    I had blue on order. Ended up going with Midnight with the grey seats.

    Can't go wrong either way....

    There have been so many of these color discussions... Color is so subjective it's pointless to ask, really. I'll say this, there has never been a Model S I didn't like, regardless of color!
