I like my silver. All my cars have been silver since 2001. Honestly, I kind of like that it blends in. My neighbors didn't even realize I had a new car for 6 months, since my old car was the same color and size, and also plugged in, a Volt.

Same thought process and history with gray/silver myself. Always with black interior - except this time, as I went with white.

My June 2019 Midnight Silver Metallic (come on, it's gray) with the black interior still works for me. I like that it has bluish shading in it. But I still would have liked a broader range of colors to choose from, for both the interior and exterior.

Yeah, it's really "Medium Gray Metallic" or "Galaxy Gray Metallic"...

Just to answer. I have bought mostly red cars. I do want a blue but Tesla blue is a little too dark for me so went with may old standby. Also don't like black interior and the white is a killer to me.

if I could go back, I would pick the default color and wrap the car in any color I want. Tesla charges $1000+ for paint, a full wrap is ~$2500, so for $1500 extra I could protect my car from minor rock chips, scratches, etc.

I just ordered a blue Tesla 3 as a surprise gift for my wife. I am confident that she will fall in love with the car. But having panic attacks about the colour choice. How does blue exterior look in grey skies and dull evenings? Not a lot of blue skies and sun in Wellington am afraid.

Yes, mine is the Deep Blue, if I can choose again I will pick Pearl White, Red, or Silver

I just feel the blue is a bit too dark unless under bright sunlight, if it were a shade or two lighter than it is now I would be much happier with it.

I'm in Texas and unless it's under direct summer sunlight it a pretty dark blue. Definitely darker looking than the website suggested.

I like my MSM, but if white was free when I bought it, I would have gone with that.

always have loved white cars. Prob would have gone with the poverty 18’s then too

It's dark, but great looking. The blue changes with light intensity, but it's never bad, IMO.

Be careful with wanting the silver shown prior to the model 3 release. The silver used is much more metallic/chrome than the silver customers were able to buy.

The prototype silver is amazing.

I have red on white and I’m very happy with my choice.

But that prototype silver is amazing. It reminds me of the molten metal of the terminator in Terminator 2. I expect it to morph into something else.
