    OK, I'm 99% decided on the grey paint, so I just have to decide on the leather, then I'm done, and can lock-in.

    Are there any good photo's of the grey leather? I've looked at all the threads that mention 'grey leather', but aside from a couple of shots of the stand-alone seats next to each other, I can't find any good shots from actual production models.

    My resistance to black is that it's kind of a boring color (I've always had black, except for a red in an early SLK), and will get hot in the Texas sun, as my car, during the day, will be outside in a very exposed parking lot. I think I'd like the grey, as long as it's not too washed out in color. I'll be going with the matte obeche trim, so I don't want the car to look 'dull'. The tan, I think, is just too orange for my personal taste. I know the design studio is way off, but in many of the photos I've seen, I'm not sure how well it would go with the grey exterior.

    Decision decisions.

    Thanks, I've seen those before, but the lighting is so bright in the photos it's difficult to really see the color of the leather.

    Maybe some of the new owners who have taken recent delivery of a Dolphin can help out...somebody has to have gotten the grey leather.

    Seems like the more popular interior for greys is black. I'm leaning toward grey/grey. I think those pics from the "random model S sightings" thread look good, but would also like to see some more pics of the grey leather.

    Badgerlake in the "Owner delivery stories" thread posted a couple days ago that he got his grey leather and will post pics soon. I'm trying to wait patiently!

    Budsterdub, that looks really good.
    Do you have any other pictures? Perhaps some of the exterior, especially one that can show what the exterior white looks like with the grey interior inside?
    Someone I know is trying to decided on colors and they are leaning towards the regular white with grey interior, but shes not sure what it will really look like, especially together....

    how do the bolsters feel in alcantara?

    also, what do you think of the matching between the leather and the headliner?

    is the headliner alcantara too?

    pedals - they metal or rubber?

    Thank you, Budster! Had some reservations about the two-tone aspect of it, but your car looks very nice. Any drawbacks or comcerns about the grey - dirt, etc.?

    Budsterdub, thank you so much! that is exactly what i've been looking for. i ordered almost the exact same car on blind faith. thanks for proving me right!

    the white piping on the seats matching the exterior is just too much awesome for me to deal with....

    Is it actually white? I thought it was tan (to match the headliner), but I've not seen any other actual pictures aside from this one, so maybe Tesla's plan changed...?
