    Finally got around to taking some pictures of my S. VIN 1299, Delivered 12/1/12 and already nearly 2000 miles on it!
    It's a Performance 85kwh, but it's in full stealth mode right now... I "downgraded" to 19" and my spoiler is still a due-bill backorder. :mad:

    Very nice car...I have the exact same config minus the performance. I really like the config and I love your pics. These are going on my desktop!

    Love, love these photographs! I'll probably end up with the non-performance version looking just like this... but man how I long for the 21" silvers. Tho in our neck of the woods 19" all-seasons make better sense.

    Thanks Josh.

    Looks great! Makes me glad I chose black (though I went with black interior (with red piping on the P85) and 21" wheels). Hope to post my own pics by March...

    @kinddog, not really a waste of bandwidth, as they're loaded once, then cached. But does make for a long scrolling page.

    I don't mind too much though, because they're gorgeous photos. ;)

    Beautiful photos of a beautiful car in a beautiful setting. Almost made me want to change to black:)

    Looks like it, but it's not. This is along Scenic Drive... right at the bottom of Ocean Ave. in Carmel. Highly recommended.

    Holy cow, that is exactly what I ordered, Black 85kWh perf w\ tan interior and "downgraded" 19s .. awesome photos! Even more excited now that I've seen these high-res awesome photos of what I'm getting.

    Updated:
    Did you tint your window's at all? They look slightly darker than what I would expect, but that could be just the color temps with the photos.

    Ha I was right! I just found your post in my other thread about aftermarket tinting. Said you put "40% ceramic" all around. Nice!

    Keep it civil please. Some software doesn't allow editing of quoted posts (e.g. Tapatalk IIRC) and editing is difficult on some platforms (e.g. iPhone)

    <--- as you see by my profile pic, my other Tesla is bright red. I love my black Model S, but had the multicoat red been available, I probably would have chosen it. Can't wait to see those on the streets...

    - - - Updated - - -

    Yes... went with ceramic 40% on all 4 windows and back glass. love it. I usually actually tint my windshields as well, but decided to hold off doing that on the S for now.

    Don't know from iPhone, but you can kb edit, without highlighting with your mouse/pointer. Hold the Shift key down, and use the cursor keys to highlight. Whether text or pix. Then "delete" takes it away!

    Love the black, looks great. As one who deferred until the red was available I can't tell you how painful it is to see all of these deliveries and know that I have to wait three more months.

    Tapatalk's newest version allows you to change it. Just remove the ATTACH tags and the number between it.
