    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.

    From Tesla store touch up paint section:

    The New Metallic Grey - Steel Grey now called Midnight Silver paint code is PMNG
    The Old Metallic Grey - Dolphin Grey paint code is PMTG

    And PMNG touch-up is currently not available. I'm on the waiting list...

    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.
