Going to order model s with 90 battery upgrade with jump seats and upgraded wheels. My question is color... I like red....anyone have any issues with it? My wife thinks red will attract speeding tickets and is too flashy??

Comments?

I personally think the red is too flashy. I drove one for a few days and having red mirrors and hood in my line of sight was actually a little annoying after a day or two. I like the new blue color personally even though I own the old blue.

I felt the red was a little to flashy for me. I'm generally a low key type person, and the Model S already draws a bit more attention than I like.

I think the new blue is good compromise between being looking really nice, but not being overly flashy. I'm very happy with it.

I was in your same shoes. I liked the red, the wife thought it was too flashy, we ordered the new blue. I am happy with my order. Here's an interesting poll I started when I was making my decision. I found it interesting that blue and red were much more popular than all the other "50 shades of gray".

Red or Blue or something else?
