    It looks like Tesla reverted back their recent increase in metallic paints. All metallic paints are back to $1000, Red and White multi coat back to $1500. The destination and doc fee is still $1200 though.

    Shows the original pricing for me too. First time I've looked at the edit screen. Wanted to figure out the difference between the two blacks...

    I still can't figure that out though.

    One is like a metallic black, looks pretty sweet up close but from far away it just looks black lol... IMHO, hard to justify paying 1k for that.

    If you edit your order you get original pricing of when you configured, AWD price will stay the same and paint prices are the same.

    If you configure a new car then the prices show the new prices.

    Yeah, from what I can tell, for me it makes no sense. I have had two black cars in the past, and a bit of dust or dirt never bothered me on it. I feel like the Obsidian might hide that slightly better, but for $1000 to correct an issue I've never noticed in my two previous cars ever, I can't imagine I'll care.

    I have a P3D order that went in last week, my edit button has not disappeared yet. If I call Tesla with this active but not delivered order, will they tell me to pound sand or can I get my paint upgrade price adjusted?

    That’s been the case for awhile. Over a month.

    I think the OP is seeing the website fix for orders placed before the price increases. Edits to old orders now correctly reflect the lower prices for when the order was placed. Orders placed after the price increases are still high I think, and the website still shows erroneously high prices for me. I edited my order when there was still this bug where any editing of any sort caused your entire order to increase to the new prices. If I try to make edits now, I still show the new higher prices, even though I originally ordered before the price increases.

    These prices are only valid if you configured your car before August.

    I reserved 3/31/16 in store noon, Initially configure 5/31 for AWD White ext/Black int 19 EAP, and
    Switched on 7/23 to AWD White/White 19 EAD/FSD, and White ext went from 1000 to 1500.
    So if that is the case I will make an argument to get $500 off once I get a VIN and IDA!

    Yes, you should be able to get your $500 back. Either your account will be updated automatically or you can talk to Tesla when a VIN gets generated and they call you for the delivery process.

    It certainly looks like the original price of $1000 (for Metallic paint) is only reflected for people who made the reservation and configuration before the price hike. I'm glad to see Tesla fixing these things. So far they seem to be honoring Free Premium Internet for anyone who made the reservation by 6/30, original price for metallic paints, AWD and multicoat paint who had the reservation by August and hopefully the free supercharging for P3D will be available for anyone who configures by 9/16.

    Made a reservation, or placed an order? I am a Day 1 reservation holder, but have not placed my order.

    I have no existing order and just tried on two different web browsers. Both show $1500 for blue paint.
