    This is an option that I think should come on P85--and probably will one day.

    Love it!

    Thanks! My guy mixed it from the Tesla logo, but just a touch deeper to give it a rich look. The letters are in pearl white to match the car with a a hint of fluorescent paint so they light up when headlights hit them. Looks cool at night too!

    Looks great. I'm quite the fan of accent colors other than the stereotypical flat red that everyone has these days. :)

    Very nice touch. I just ordered the multi-coat red wheel "T" stickers from this site for my Blue P85 for what is hopefully a similar (albeit much cheaper) pop of color.

    How do you think this would look with Sig red? Thinking maybe a different color might work better.

    With a sig I would go with a different color.
