    Silver Metallic wouldn't have been my first choice, but we thought the CPO was a good deal. I love it in person, and the more I see it, the more I think it's one of the better colors.

    Nothing with good composition, but here are two. The first was taken at dusk and the silver starts to look like a light blue. The 2nd was under our carport charging, so you can see how it looks with shadows.

    Go with your gut on the color choice... For me originally I was thinking black midnight silver or blue, but living in Los Angeles those colors are everywhere, not just on Teslas but every other car as well, red however really stands out and I've always wanted a red car... Once I saw one in the local showroom in RED it was all over it had to be Multi Coat RED.

    Something else I did was coat the whole car in paint protective film from 3M, specifically the scotch guard pro product as I want my car to look showroom new for years to come and be easy to clean, without worry of damaging the paint or adding swirls. With the film coating I can use a spray wax for a quick detail while supercharging without worry of damaging the paint creating scratches by rubbing dirt on the clear coat of the paint.

    Lighting is a bit dark, but pretty sure that is the now-discontinued titanium metallic. The midnight silver metallic more closely matches the grey color of the wheels. In those pictures the wheels contrast more and paint looks more brown/gold to me anyway.

    this car is midnight silver metallic.
