    I like what they are doing with Model 3 and plan to get one as soon as I can .

    My only questions / concerns are about color choices and seat materials.

    I hope they offer some exterior colors in these ranges:

    #1: Metallic black (not just the piano/jet black). Like the old Roadster "obsidian black".
    #2: Dark gray (maybe like a titanium or steel gray) metallic too. Graphite/Slate gray...
    #3: Dark blue (maybe like Model S Ocean blue)

    For interior, I hope they offer a "textile" seat type option. They had Microfiber on Roadster, and some non-leather seat options for Model S & X. Some kind of durable synthetic cloth hopefully. Ultrasuede, Alcantara perhaps. Hopefully in a darker color too. I would want gray or black. Also, I hope there is dark headliner and dashboard. A lot of modern cars are only offering headliners in white, for some reason, which I find to be negative.

    I wonder if they will do any kind of carbon fiber (or fake carbon fiber) accents on anything Model 3? They had that on Roadster and S...

    I would appreciate some bold color choices for the exterior. There are enough gray/silver/white cars.

    Every evening when I go to bed, I am praying for a brown or dark red interior.
    the black an the tan or grey is so boring...:(

    I remember the reveal of the Audi TT ( Franz? do you remember??) the cognac leatherseats were stiched like baseball handshoes. I loved it!

    Yes, I love my current chocolate brown Mini Clubman interior. More color options would be nice.[​IMG]
