    I have made it my mission to find the coolest color for my model S.
    Orange looked pretty cool, let me know what you guys think of Chrome! In the 1 day the car has been chrome, I have probably been responsible for at least 1 fender bender :smile:

    The orange was not bad. The chrome is Bieber-league hideous.

    Color tastes are very personal. I think the orange was beautiful, if not my style. The chrome looks... Hmmm... I really want to be positive here... Maybe... I've almost got it.... Expensive. It looks like you spent a lot of money on it. If that is what you are going for you nailed it.

    If you were going for something that highlights the beauty and lines of the car I'm thinking you ended up off-brief.

    Words escape me.
    I admire your creativity if not your sense of style. Are you related to the Kardashians by any chance? Just wondering. :)

    And please, don't be offended. I'm saying this with a big grin. It is totally eye catching.

    You are missing the opportunity here. Just change the angle in that outdoor shot a bit and claim it is active camouflage like "predator" :)

    Not for me, but cool just the same.

    Orange would be fun on Halloween & the chrome if I was 20 years younger & still single.

    I had my flame suit on expecting much harsher responses lol. The shop that did the orange asked me if they could try Wrapping a car chrome and I offer, no cost to me.
    It's coming off next week, can't decide which color I should do next.
    Btw I feel like Justin Bieber driving it around, awful feeling.

    I'll admit... if offered for free... I might do that, too... just to see the looks on people's faces. :)
    As for next color - yellow. Like this http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-aM-QiouCmOY/TlycRL6NeGI/AAAAAAAABug/CgDY-sLAbrU/s1600/Ferrari_Yellow_1.JPG

    If it was brushed aluminum, maybe, but "mirror accident causer" is not for me.

    Really like both.

    Like to hear what living with chrome is like. Think you should keep it that way for a month or two.

    Who needs mirrors on the visors when you have chrome like that? Problem solved! (see, there's always something nice you can say :) )

    I'd love for someone to offer to wrap my Roadster for free. I loved the orange and I like the chrome. It is a distraction though, and I wonder if you could get a ticket for it.
