    Has anyone taken delivery of the new darker steel grey? If so, would you please post some photos.

    There are a few photos posted on here reported to be taken at the Fremont store, but when I contacted the Fremont store they told me they did not have one to show. I was recently in San Francisco and had high hopes of seeing one, but no such luck. The Rockville, MD service center and DC store do not know when they will get them either.

    I ordered the grey a week before they announced the new steel grey, the OA that I had test driven with sent me this picture of the old grey (background) and the new steel grey (foreground) Model S. I changed my order to the new Steel grey. Delivery in September

    Wow. That looks exactly like BMW's Sparkling Graphite.

    Mine was scheduled for "Late August" but has been pushed back to sometime in September. Originally ordered black but it was an easy choice when I saw the picture posted on this thread.

    More black/white shades!!! Jeez, can't they lighten up a little and change the colour palette? Rainbows have more than black and white in them!!!

    Is this metallic? Does it look a different color under sunlight?

    Well Pics will have to wait... got the dreaded "car is delayed" phone call from my DS this morning.

    He says it should only be about a 7-10 day delay... pics will be up as soon as I get it.

    You got us in suspense as well. Can't wait to see it in person. Just make sure no one washes or waxes it...bring it as is....we'll take care of the rest ;)

    Here's a link to some photos that I posted on another thread. I'm scheduled to receive mine At the end of this month. The first three photos in this link are photos that I took while driving down a California street. The fourth photos is one I found online. The last two photos are from the one day that the Fremont store had one in this color.

    We've got the pleasure of making jstepy's new MS even better in the coming week. The color is stunning in real life. It has hues of blue, purple, grey, and it's metallic. Can't wait to polish it further to refine the finish and apply nano coating to make the metal flakes come alive. Stay tuned!!!

    Awesome color. Was at Scottsdale SC the other day scoping it out prior to my car's arrival and their first steel grey car was in the delivery area - hot.
