All I can say is wow. Why would someone do this to their MS?

    just saw this roll up to the supercharger in Fountain Valley.

    I can understand wrapping your MS and maybe blacking out chrome but this a new one for me.

    I apologize in advance for my post if this is someone from the forum.

    Howdy,

    While I agree,

    ...Even mainstream Toyota sold a gold emblem trim package, back in the day....

    It's definitely in the eye. To my eye this thing is hideous. :eek:

    How would you compare it to Will.i.am's Model S?

    I don't know that I'd actually do it, but I actually kinda like the look. Of course, to do it right they should make the headlight surround and the side blinkers match, too...

    I appreciate his/her desire to make the car unique . On the other hand, I never understood yellow cars. If that's your thing, fine, but I just don't get it.

    Edit: I stand corrected . . . . This is amazing

    Might be cultural? Some cultures value gold highly.

    I took the rugrat out to Malibu yesterday for some crappy tourist shrimp. We're rolling down the PCH and I get passed by Will I Am's MS. Pictures truly don't do it justice. It's a special kind of ugly.

    But the engineer in me started nervously twitching when I saw the sonar sensors. He's got the front sonar sensors pointed 45 degrees out instead of 90. Couple that with the fenders that are 6 inches further out than stock and what you're left with a sensor that won't see a dividing wall until last minute and a system that isn't aware that the car it's installed on is a foot wider than it thinks it is. Autopilot must be interesting on that bad boy.

    AP doesn't seem to use the sensors except during the automatic lane change. I've used AP in cars with no parking sensors and it works fine.

    Though I wonder what parallel park assist will do!

    I hope that Model S does not get bullied by its peers when it goes in for service.
