Anyone have the 20" turbines with UP springs?

    I just got my invitation to configure and am trying to pick the color combo. Right now I'm thinking of either silver, grey or white for the exterior. I'm also considering the 20" turbines from EV Wheels Direct with the medium springs from Unplugged Performance.

    Does anyone have any photos of the cars with those rims and springs besides Teslanomics black M3?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don’t know about a car with both wheels and those springs but there is one in Red. EV Wheel Direct

    Get silver. Least picked color so you’ll be semi-rare. For now

    Aren't the TSportlines also made in China?

    I looked around on their website. Couldn't find anything that states where they are made.

    Most likely. They’re just cast wheels, but work well for the price

    There is nothing wrong with that... don't be ignorant. If you're buying BBS or high quality wheels, I get it, but most aftermarket wheels made in the US or China are going to have the same design and manufacturing standards.

    So right now I'm thinking either:

    Midnight silver with 20" silver turbines on the moderate UP springs

    Or

    Silver with 20" silver turbines on the moderate UP springs

    I liked how the old metallic (dolphin?) grey looked on the first few Model S with the silver turbines before they changed the grey color.

    I've never had a white car so despite how good the 3 looks in photos in white, I'm still apprehensive.

    Any thoughts?

    I am thinking about the configuration. The 20” silver turbines look good. Midnight Silver too. No White cars too many on the road now.

    Although the Tesla White looks good......is it Pearl White?

    I’m also thinking about 20” wheels and the UP 1.5” drop springs. Super curious to hear from anyone who has experience with either of these setups!

    I will be getting the Moderate springs from UP installed in the next couple weeks, and taking delivery of the 20" TST Turbines in May. I'll report back once it's complete. Guessing you wanted to know if there would be rubbing or any conflicts with the setup? I'm curious as well but haven't been able to find any info either.

    Yeah exactly - especially since the 20s from Tesla have different rear upper links.
