    Calling all deep blue metallic owners, particularly of the refreshed model. How are you feeling about your choice? Thoughts? How's your experience been with keeping it clean? Better than black? About the same?

    Photos would be more than welcome too!

    I absolutely love the color. I think it is better than black in terms of not showing dirt as much. I do have paint protection which does keep it cleaner. I have had very frequent compliments on the color. Go for it!

    I don't own a DBM Model S... yet! But I have one on order for November delivery. I too had a lot of trouble deciding, as I was torn between Pearl White and Deep Blue.

    I found this random video on YouTube, and I think it really shows off the color well.



    There is also this video of a Deep Blue Metallic Model X that I love. One of the reasons I asked for a later delivery is I am hoping the ultra white seats come to the Model S. I think this is a stunning color combo!!

    Yes, I love the color and all my friends have commented how good it looks.

    This is a replacement for my 2013 S40 which was so dark blue you could barely tell it was not black.

    DBM is truly a beautiful color. Just be warned that it will attract more (99% positive) attention than a black or grey Tesla, whether that's a pro or con for you.

    Love my Deep Blue Metallic Model X. I have the full front and all doors protected with paint protection film so those areas are super easy to clean. The rest doesn't seem too difficult either. I wash the car on average every 10 days with Optimum No Rinse.

    I have owned many, many vehicles. White AMG S63, White LS460, White XC90, Black Edge Sport, Black Camaro RS and many more. But, my two personal favorites are Deep Blue Metallic '98 GS400 and a '15 S85D . Wonderful depth, easy to keep clean and always stand out in a crowd.

    It's absolutely perfect post opti coat... Sharp, classy, bold and 10x easier to keep clean than black. Mine has next gen Tan and figured ash. Couldn't be happier.

    Travelled through the Cincinnati Supercharger/Service Center and they had tons of blue Model S and Model X. They looked amazing. A local friend also got the Blue and definitely stands out. The Deep blue would be my color of choice if I put in an order right now!

    Yep, I love about 10 minutes away from the Cincinnati SC. I'm guessing they delivered around 4-5 deep blues last week. They looked great. There are a couple test drive models out in the front now of both the X and S.

    Easier to keep clean than black, eh? That's actually surprising to me given that it's nearly as dark as black.

    Still love the color

    Still hate that Tesla doesn't have touch up paint for it.

    I wanted the dark silver. My wife wanted the blue. I went with the blue. I don't regret it at all.

    It's not as dark as it looks in that picture...much, much easier to keep clean.

    All of my previous cars were black, grey, or white. This is my first "loud" color, and I couldn't be happier. Have gotten many positive comments on it. IMG_20160716_114321.jpg

    My last car was black. This is much better. I get compliments EVERY where I go.
