    This looks really nice, but i'll stick with my $15 Chinese model for now. Maybe if they offered different colors i'd spring for it.

    "Actuating rear spoiler"

    It has a feature that you can't even get on the actual P100D if you were to buy one today!

    Received mine today. Record time. Ordered yesterday at noon. Shipping notice at 3:30pm. Delivered at 9:21am this morning! If only Tesla...(insert joke or quip about Tesla delivery delays). ;)

    This thing is a tank. Incredible attention to detail. Looks like figured ash trim with premium package. 7-seat monopost style (since discontinued). Glossy seat backs (since discontinued). Yes, the spoiler retracts! (since discontinued). 22" Silver Turbine wheels (since discontinued). Autopilot 2.x style side turn lights. Real-ish carpet. Actual seatbelts! Falcon Wing Doors have two points of articulation just the like the real thing! Upper portion of the windshield is frosted. No significant panel gap issues. To open the doors and trunks, there's a little flat plastic toothpick included.

    Any thoughts on how easy it would be to take it apart if I need to repaint it MC Red?

    I sent an email off to Tesla online to ask about MCR and if they ever respond I will post back here.

    Yeah, yeah. Panel gaps. Also autopilot doesn't work. Screen is frozen and unresponsive. Mobile app doesn't see the car. No Alcantara. ;)

    You could probably just tape up the windows, wheels, and chrome bits and spray the whole thing at once. I don't see any screws, so probably will be a challenge to completely disassemble the car.

    Tesla did get back to me and red is not currently planned. :(

    I don't think it's possible to do a repaint even if I could take it apart as some of the features are decals.

    Bummer. They're missing out on an opportunity to make more money off these. I would probably pay another $100 in order to customize these to exactly match (colors, wheels, interior trim, etc.,) my real cars.

    about time! i'm still waiting to hear back from some reputable model makers as to where they will end up building this and have stated that we would gladly pay in this price range for a detailed model.

    i may just have to buy this one and paint the wheels black. :D (not confident enough to paint the entire car, even though i have a bottle of the pearl white paint)
