    Hello,
    Do you know why Tesla increased the price of metallic paint to $1500 and multi-coat to $2000.
    This is a 30% inflation!

    The pearl colors mean essentially 3 times through the paint booth.

    And a $500 increase on a $100,000 vehicle would not change my mind on whether to buy.
