    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?

    Nothing classier than black! Caution; you won't be getting a new car you will be getting a part-time job trying to keep it clean:smile:

    I've never been a big fan of red. But when I saw the MC Red, it was an easy choice. Had to have it. Go with your gut!

    They're probably too big, or will be tomorrow. I think it's age 10 or below or up to 80 lbs.

    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.

    80 pound kids is a stretch in the 3rd row. Speaking from personal experience with many kids

    They do sometimes have "overnight test drive events". 4pm -> 8am.

    Also possible to arrange one for Friday night til Monday morning, or over a holiday. They did it for me.

    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?
