    Is there anywhere the specific paint color codes are identified? Thanks.

    RandyS -- much appreciated. I guess I was looking in the wrong places. So with the code, a professional auto body shop should be able to do an identical match. Great.

    Try Dr. ColorChip. They can usually cook up anything--they did a multi-coat red PMMR for me better than the factory touch-up pen.

    Thanks JPP I just ordered from Dr. ColorChip will see what happens as this is one of the new colors, here's how I ordered it:

    PPSB
    Deep Blue Metallic (originally called Ocean Blue)
    2015-05
    Tesla
    Model S

    Oh and to answer OP, the paint code should be on the door jamb sticker, for me it was the only way I found Deep Blue Metallic, as it isn't yet listed in the Tesla store touch-up paint.

    I'm actually looking forward to Dr. ColorChip now, vs. the traditional mfr. touchup paint deal. I just hope they don't tell me they can't do this color.

    Updates on paint results

    Hi Lex,

    Were you able to get the paint and test it out? I have your same color and need some now. I just used the summons feature and the car slammed into my garage door and then proceeded to open it leaving a 3 inch scratch right in the middle of the rear bumper where one of the hinges came in contact. Never happened in the weeks I've been using it. My wife said I looked like I was chasing our dog that likes to run away when I ran to push the door away from the car.

    Did you make that? and if so, have you played much with the compositor? I made another thread about it, but it got zero replies, I'm specifically trying to find out about any other views of the car than I already know about (basically anything other than what's used on the CPO site or the my.tesla page)

    I made it by crawling the web site and brute forcing to see if there's any hidden colors. Didn't find any, but at least I got some pretty illustrations of the car.

    It's easy to change the equipment in the illustrations by changing the option codes in the url I got it from.

    I have all the option and paint codes, I can make it an X or an S (maybe I could even figure out how to make it a roadster...) It's the view that I want to find more on, I found a handful,(all the views you can get in the design studio or on the CPO page) but I wonder if the views on the vehicle displays, or in the app are also available somehow.

    Bringing this thread back. Do you or anyone know what the silver wheel paint code is? I want to get it in a spray can but all I see is paint pens online! I can have a can made up locally if I know the color code.
    Thanks
