Gray 20" Performance wheels

Sorry that my first post on here is a bit negative but...

I ordered my M3P on 26th September with an estimated delivery date in early December. When I ordered the silver wheels were the only option - great I thought as that's what I want. I really don't like dark wheels as firstly I far prefer silver and around here dark wheels are a bit, well, 'Gangsta'. Also one scuff and they look terrible as the silver shows through.

Now I find out today that I'm getting the grey ones, even though my order was placed about 3 weeks before they changed the website to grey. I have to say I'm more than a little upset by this and am now seriously considering cancelling the order as I'm not getting what I ordered - if I ordered a jacket with silver lining and they gave me a grey lining I'd refuse to accept it, likewise with pretty much any other purchases. I've emailed Tesla with my concerns and am awaiting a reply.

London, England.

I agree. I think the silver look better on darker colors and the grey on lighter colors. I also think the silver wheels compliment the chrome trim and dark grey wheels really need chrome delete to look like a well thought out package. You have the option to return for sure, with no questions asked.

Only thing I can say is if you cancel, then what would your other options be? The 19s with a AWD (instead of P)? Anyone ordering a P that would be a no. I do think the grey wheels will be a popular wheel choice (for most actually) so perhaps you can organize a swap. Getting yours in Decembers kinda takes away from a "take-off" swap where each party basically receives new wheels, so you would need to be sure to get pristine wheels.
