    I took my wife the other day to the Sunnyvale store and left without having her look over the gray and blue carefully. We drove a white P85D and she spent some time looking at colors and options inside of several but none of them were the gray or blue.
    The gray changed at some point right? So when I search for images on the web, I can't be sure which one I'm looking at.
    If anyone could post some links to the current metallic blue and gray, that would be great. I have until tomorrow to change it.

    Here's mine in Steel Grey. I love it. Very slight hints of blue in direct sun. Everybody comments on it and loves it.

    I ordered the original grey but was caught in the middle of all the production changes at the factory (D/X re-tooling, new Steel Grey, etc.). Of all the original colors available, I didn't much care for any of them to be honest. I went with the "dolphin grey". I was very happy when Tesla phoned me to inform me that it was being changed to Steel Grey. I love it and it is exactly what I wanted.

    And as CHG-ON said, it has a blue metallic flake that is only apparent in direct sunlight - which gives it a beautiful sparkle
