    Are they not the same? Source? The sunset red seemed quite popular.

    The are not the same and my source is Tesla. It was thought that the Sunset color was a bit too "flat". The multi-coat gives it more depth and character. The samples in the store blew me away and made me very happy that I had changed my final order to red.

    Is it also a different color tone, or just that they are now making it multi-coat instead of single-coat? On my photos (not posted yet) the sunset red, from the Get Amp'ed event in Fremont, doesn't obviously look flat. Not even in comparison to the "multi-coat" photos in MNX's photo gallery, at least not on first sight.

    Looks nice, but in thinking long term it'd be better if we created separate threads on TMC to hold all the pics.

    * Photos are stored on a separate site - if your site goes down, then :(
    * Separate login means that people won't upload new photos

    It's very hard to tell without the sunset and multi-coat side-by-side, but my impression from my visit to the store is that the color tone is definitely different. Of course, this is all subjective.

    Nope, I ordered the car sight unseen. Never been to a Tesla store or even seen one in real life.

    Thanks Mike! In my haste to get the gallery populated I added those by accident.

    I think I got them moved ok. How about this one with the perf wheels? White or Pearl White?

    Need more pics of brown! I think we're down to White or Brown. I've always been a grey/silver car person. Last 15 yrs worth of cars (especially the sporty ones) were all in that range. Looking for something different for the S. It's basically Brown or White+$1700 meaning: the brown costs $750 more than the white and we'd definitely get the Armor on brown, and would not on white. So, We need to determine if we like the brown "$1700 more than" the white. I'm hoping to find someone in PHX area who gets brown so we can go see it in the flesh. BUt in the meantime, pics may have to do.

    Thanks for the brown pics. I would think they should be added, unless you were trying to keep all the pics only the high resolution. But it helps to see the color, esp in bright sun.

    Photos Only

    It would be nice to have a photo only selection.
    Nice Pictures of the colors inside and out.

    There are only two different cars shown here so far...
    Would be nice to have all the colors and interiors too.

    Right, but that is what you're asking for, yes? A thread dedicated to just photos?

    Sorry, I don't understand the "only two different cars" comment. When I click on the link, I see 12 different albums, each dedicated to photos of different colors.
