    With the Model X getting the new Tesla look, it is only a matter of time until the Model S dumps the nose cone in favor of the new look for the brand.

    Messed up the poll with the first and fourth options being the same, but you get the idea.

    Yes, I like that front end look for the S much more than the current look. Smooth and sleek. However, Elon has said in the past that there will not be a uniform style shared among different Tesla models. On the other hand, the S and X are obviously closely related and perhaps Elon was referring to the Model 3 having a distinctly different look than the S and X.

    I'm strongly for the new nose cone and LED headlamps. In my opinion, that is the only ugly part on current Model S's.

    The X nosecone is soo ugly... I think opinions are polarized enough that they should simply make it an option and people can choose one nosecone or the other.

    I love the current nose cone. To be more blunt, the new nosecone is FUGLY. I am not sure I would have bought a model S if that's the current nosecone. I probably wouldn't buy a Tesla with this new nosecone. That's how strongly I feel about it.

    I love Model X front end. If a new bumper was available that had a Model X style design that fit existing Model S cars, I'd buy one and bring it to the bodyshop to get it painted in my discontinued grey color.

    I was going to say the new nose cone is like Marmite, but I reckon Americans are normal and all love the taste of it. :biggrin:

    I tried to edit the poll, but alas it is not possible. That is the problem with trying to do something right after pulling an all-nighter. :eek:

    Ok, that explains it.... I was going to post that this was perhaps one of the most poorly worded polls here on TMC to date. (Well I guess I just did, didn't I?).

    Reeler... you are thusly BANISH-ED from authoring polls after pulling All Nighters.

    In addition, this thread probably should have been started in Interior Exterior Sub Forum.... Oyyy:love:

    Haha, I must admit that I do like the new look. It's different than ICE cars since no engine vents are needed. Also, it's probably more aerodynamic too.
