I wanted a little more of a "stealth" look

    Red trimmings isn't very "stealthy"

    Like the wrap though.

    Kind of agree. I think it would have looked killer with black (or matching grey) emblems/logos and the standard grey calipers. The rest looks really good.

    Looks great though I have never liked a nose cone in any color but black.

    You paid someone to do this to your car?

    it came with the red brake calipers, so I decided to add a few more touches of red to continue that color scheme

    when I was at the Design Center in Hawthorne recently, at one point there were 10 people surrounding the car, taking pictures, all saying how great it looks ... I value Tesla designers' opinions more than yours

    Love that the nose cone is identical in color to the body. I think the nose cone should be the same color as the body. The glossy black just doesn't do it for me. If I could get it painted MC red, I would. Once I get mine in June, I will be wrapping it with either CF or maybe matte black. Awesome wrap job.

    Everyone settle. It's not a contest. All that matters is that each of us is happy with our own car. Not the Tesla designers. Not the other people on the forum.

    To the OP ... though if you're going to post pics on a public forum, you need a thicker skin and not get defensive. You have to expect not everyone will love the car. As long as YOU are happy, that's all that matters.

    I don't usually like wraps much - but that looks awesome.

    I don't mind ... in fact, I welcome ... constructive criticism ... I just thought his snarky comment was a ***** move

    I like the mirrors - cool. And the door handles will be literally cooler when the sun is beating down on them I bet. I'm still trying to think of something to do so I can open my car door without a pot holder on a sunny day.

    Like the wrap but not the rims. To each it's own since you r making the payments.

    Overall a neat look, there's something about the red calipers that bug me though on it, not even sure I can explain why. I'm also not sure about the nose, maybe it would grow on me, but for now I prefer the black. I do love the carbon fibre accents replacing the chrome though, and the red logos really look sharp!
