    In a few days, I will finalise my order.
    I will choose black, and then, do a full car wrapping, to protect body and paint

    My wife wants me to choose red multicoat, but I love cars with yellow color ! So I have just made a photoshop test to see how it would look in yellow

    What do you think about it ? Could it be beautiful ? I didn't see any yellow Model S yet. Did you ?

    My wife says no too, but I will try to have the last word :D
    Here is another photoshop test

    In France, we don't have yellow taxies, so this color still looks gorgeous for a part of people. ;)

    It's cool actually! I always liked the Ferraris, Lambos, Corvettes and Vipers in yellow. So why not the S? I would go for a deeper, even fuller yellow though.

    Yeah! I was just saying I wanted to see a yellow one in another thread. I like a yellow that's a touch more...umm, yellow. :biggrin: And the wheels should be black too.

    If you're doing a wrap, it might be best to stick to matte colors (see here). Glossy wraps never look as good as real paint (except from a distance).

    I'm not too fan of matte colords

    Yes ! It is the yellow I like.
    A bit difficult with photoshop to make this same yellow with a white color for base
