    I've been checking my order page compulsively since I ordered my Model S. It's currently built and in-transit (I'm supposed to take delivery next week).

    Up until this afternoon, the color showed as the nice dark "deep blue metallic" that I ordered. Now, however, it's showing as the same (much lighter) blue from the Model 3. It looks like all of the marketing/etc images on the site have been updated to reflect this change.

    Anyone know when this changed? I just *really* hope it's a website/cosmetic thing to reflect the current state of things and not a "surprise, we actually painted your car this other blue you don't like!".

    ?? The blues are the same on both cars. Model S hasn't had the very dark blue since 2015.

    I'm not talking about the super dark blue, I'm talking about the deep blue metallic. I've seen a couple of other threads reporting the same thing re: blue changing on the website so it must be a cosmetic thing only.

    I was almost sure the model 3 blue was lighter like that.... I've only seen one blue model 3 in person, though, to be fair.
