    Quick and dirty pics of the new kid. Couldn't be happier. Drove him home in bumper to bumper MD/DC/NOVA traffic, but it was still an incredible joy. The information on this forum has been incredible.

    Can you post some interior pix? I am looking at the 85D in midnight silver but debating on upholstery and accents.

    Congrats! I'll never forget the day I picked up our baby and did our first insane mode launch with the unsuspecting family in the car:)

    Great on you! You will never regret it. One question: what is Mid Silver Metallic? That's new to me. I have Steel Grey, introduced in late Sept '14. Is that the same? The photos look to be, but hard to tell.

    You will have more fun than you can imagine!

    Thanks guys - i'll try and get some interior shots later today. Garage lighting was awful.

    @CHG-ON - it's Midnight Silver Metallic. Tesla's uh.. newest grey.. which is the exact same as the grey before it..

    Gorgeous. Almost went with the same color, then decided minutes before confirmation to go with the Pearl White. Many safe miles ahead!

    Midnight Silver Metallic is the new name for Steel Gray. They both have the same paint code.

    Some interior shots. I'm not sure why but the grey looks tan in the pictures, but is truly light grey in person.

    If I was buying new before the Titanium color came out, your car rnguy is the exact color combo I would get. Gorgeous!

    Congrats on the car! I have a 'late June' delivery date for my Titanium Metallic P85D. Gives me just about a month to clean out the garage so it will fit next to my wife's car.

    Judging by the parking lot lights, I'm guessing Woodbridge, VA rather than Bethesda-Montgomery Mall.

    Yup - it's the SC in Woodbridge, and it's gorgeous, and only 1 mile from one of my workplaces..

    Again - thanks for the kind words everyone. Phase 2 on the way - powerdercoating the wheels dark grey, Opticoat Pro + and XPel shield, and likely chrome deletion. Will post more pics of version 2.0 soon.

    Is Woodbridge the one at Potomac Mills Mall? If so, that was also my first Supercharger stop. Though I only got 5 minutes before being fully charged as I only went 20-25 miles from the Tyco Rd store to this stop.

    Great color choice. We ordered the same color but with black interior. In fact it's our 3rd gray car, previous ones were called flint gray, steel gray, etc. So many names for gray!

    Yay! That one will hold a special place in my memories for me since it was my Gray 85's first Supercharge (at least under my ownership)! :)
