    I really can't decide which color I want. Some days I'm all for the red... then the blue... then the white?!?

    We haven't seen any silver Release Candidates yet.

    If I had a choice, I'd like a British Racing Green. It'd look gorgeous in BRG.

    Originally, blue. But, after seeing the Motor Trend photoshoot, I'm leaning toward silver now. And, yes, I'd like to see pictures of a silver RC too!

    I will choose one of the base color. If the choices are still black or white, It's gonna be black.

    My last two cars have been black so I'd like to avoid that if I can. I'm leaning towards the blue right now until I can see a metallic silver one or if they also offer the midnight silver.

    I was going to go blue, but after seeing the red, it is stunning.

    I'm just hoping that the Model 3 comes with Midnight silver metallic. That color looked classy when I saw it...

    The color decision is probably going to come down to the wire in our household. My wife and I have been driving blue cars for 15 years (with the exception of a 3-year fling with a red Chevy Volt), so as nice as the Model 3 looks in blue, it may be time for us to change things up a little.

    The red looks great and is tempting, but it may be a little too loud for our tastes. Signature red, if offered for line-waiters like me, would be a serious contender.

    Midnight silver (or similar color) is another real possibility, as long as it ends up being sufficiently dark... I'm not really a fan of lighter grays.

    I can't tell if this is snark or not. Sounds like he's about to ruin a Model S for $12k.

    Yes with every new color I see... that's the color I want. It's bad. :)

    White looks good at most angles so that's what I am getting. Also thinking dark(ened) alloys will make a big difference but will stick to smaller wheel size. Might also get eV annex caliper covers.

    Either blue or silver so my wife's next car (prob model x) can be a dark gray/grey.

    Dark grey metallic (Midnight silver metallic?) I like the body panel edges to be visually minimized to enhance the sculpture.
