    Those aero wheels don't look half bad on the silver. If they're the base wheels, I can live with them since I'm leaning toward silver (was blue) for my car.

    I think that's called stalking. :) No wonder they're still keeping it covered while unattended... too many oglers around who will want to take countless selfies with the car, press their noses up against the windows to peek inside and leave sweaty fingerprints all over the lovely body.

    Wrong... my office is right across. I'm sure the last thing they care is fingerprints....They cover it cause of media. It's simple as that

    Any idea why they street-parked at that particular location? Food stop? Most of the other stationary shots were taken at Superchargers, on Tesla property or at photo-op locations (Lick Observatory, Marin Headlands).

    No clue. I work around google, youtube, etc. The building that it was parked next to is new...not sure why they'd park it there

    Lately the aero wheels look better because it looks, to me at least, like they fixed the silver showing around the edge. They are actually growing on me now.

    My God those wheels are about the most ugly thing I've ever seen. I know, I know, different strokes.... Those wheels wouldn't be within the same zip code of my car. The car looks great!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm the guy that thinks the preoccupation with wheels is foolish, but I'm going to have to do something about these black aero ones. They remind me way too much of $30 winter steel wheels

    There's a secret in-ground V3 supercharger at that parking spot.

    Dang, I was hoping that's the location of one of the Boring Company's car lifts to lower a Tesla onto the high-speed tunnel thingie. :)
