    Congratulations! That car looks great. Those are exactly the same options and the same color I would get if I could pull the trigger on a 70D today. How does the gray leather look against the blue paint to you?

    I really like the gray leather. It goes very well with the blue exterior. I almost ordered tan, but am glad I went with gray.

    Looks good.
    Any problems with fit, finish or paint?

    Only a one month wait? I didn't realize wait times were so short now. I waited three months for mine a year ago.

    Hope you get yours this week as well. I took it by the Keystone store to show it off. None of the sales specialists had seen an Ocean Blue yet.

    None that I can see. The roof would not open at first, but once I set it to vent and then tried again it worked fine.

    The last time I went to the Keystone store, they had a Titanium Metallic 70D and a Solid Black 85 in the showroom. It seems like the Titanium Metallic paint is going to be pretty popular. It looks pretty nice. The Deep Metallic Blue looks amazing, though.

    I thought that parking lot looked familiar! They told me that over half of orders since 70D announcement have been the titanium metallic. I hope they keep the blue off the showroom floor for that very reason. I think most people would hesitate to order a color they have never seen... This post just validates my decision :)

    I almost went with red. The red is beautiful as well, but my last car was red and I wanted something a bit different this time.

    Gorgeous car. Almost went with Blue but changes to Pearl White just before confirmation. Ours is being delivered tomorrow. Many happy and safe miles with it.

    Only real issue I've had with my Tesla was the sunroof - had to go to vent first then open (then after a while it stopped opening altogether). Ranger fixed it asap. Love the blue.

    By the way... I was a major HATER of grey interiors - probably because all the BMW grey interiors are ugly and that's all I've really owned before this. The Tesla grey interior is very close to a white - more like a off-white/grey and I LOVE this interior color.

    I was discussing with in2oil today, though, that Tesla NEEEEEEDS to come out with a cinnamon/nutmeg brown interior!!! That would look so good with blue, black, white, grey - nearly every color!

    She looks beautiful!

    Can't wait to take delivery of mine. I wasn't 100% sure of the Deep Blue color in the configurator but everytime I see it in person, I'm glad I chose it.

    Fantastic! I know she was worth the wait and you must be estatic to have her home.
    Still waiting for my ' Tessie ', to make her way home. She, yes SHE,, went to production on the 23rd, so by your time frames, I should hear something by the 1st of July.
    Give your baby a hug and tell her that she will soon have a relative close by.
