    A recap of my stats: Ordered and Confirmed 4/22/14, Delivered 6/12/14, Came Home 6/16/14 (went straight from Tesla factory to detailer.) The car was paint corrected, Opticoat Pro was applied, an Xpel wrap on the front, rear and forward quarter-panels was applied, and another layer of Opticoat Pro applied over those surfaces.

    Someone in the Q1 order thread wanted to see pictures of the Metallic Blue coupled with red brake calipers. My personal view of it is that it looks pretty sweet, but I'm biased. I decided to snap a few photos of the car parked at my house with some additional angles for anyone else currently 'Sourcing parts' who wants more Model S porn to salivate over.

    Also, a note about the charger: This is a HPWC @ 80amps installed in the Rockridge neighborhood of Oakland. The house has a 4kw PV installation on the roof, so with around 300mi/wk of driving I'm hopeful to be more or less carbon neutral. I added my charger to Plugshare today so anyone traveling through town that wants some juice can feel free to look me up there or message me here on the forum. Happy to help out another zealot...er, believer.

    So very, very excited to have a long commute on I-880 tomorrow. Never in my life would I imagine saying that before!

    Congrats on your new baby! Yeah, it puts sitting in traffic and long drives in a whole new light...sometimes even enjoyable. ;)

    Gorgeous car. I was going to get Blue with grey leather but I switched to Red. Those pics are making me doubt my choice (sort of)....stunning car!

    No P85+ badge on the back? Did you request removal at the detailer?

    Yeah, I was going to ask the same thing. XPEL installer must have removed the badging on both sides of the trunk lid.

    Beautiful car. Makes me want to add the red calipers to my Blue Metallic baby.

    I actually requested it as a factory option. I received it in Fremont without any badging. I've done this with all of my BMWs as well and prefer the look.

    Thanks for the pics. Looks great! I am regretting not getting the red calipers now but I'll know for replacing them. Not sure if the red center Ts I have would match this or if having both would be overkill.
