Pear White with White Seats....too much "white"?

    Hi all.

    Soon I will be placing my Model S order and I'm still debating on the color combination. 90% sure that i'll go with the pearl white paint however i'm undecided on the interior. The conservative side of me wants to go with black leather seats or even the mult-patern black, but I'm contemplating the white seats. I like the fact that they are synthetic and strikingly different for a strikingly different kind of car.

    I've never seen a white on white Tesla S in person. Is it just too much "white" and over the top?

    I know this is a subjective question but i'm just throwing it out there for opinions.

    Thanks! Can't wait to get my first Tesla and first EV!

    I have white on white but not S - I have an X - looks great. A very big reason for me ordering white/white was the heat - living in AZ and FL taught me to never ever buy a dark car and/or dark interior, it's just too hot (literally.... well, maybe figuratively too :), but I'll pass)

    I'm picking up my new white/white S tomorrow. I think there is enough black elements of the interior such as the floor, seat backs, lower doors, upper dash, etc that it won't be "too white".

    I have this combo. Looks great IMO. If I didn't go for PW I would still have gone for the white seats - they are superb.

    Though my car is not white - I have silver with white interior and it looks outstanding - I struggled with white or black interior and am so glad I went with white!!

    I think that's a good look. As you'll see, there's plenty of contrast in the cabin. So it's not all white on white. I was coming from a white car, so went black/tan to mix things up or else that's the combo I would have done. And I think being in Louisiana, you'll appreciate the cooler white cabin, especially in summer.

    Thanks all. You've convinced me to go with the white on white. That was what my gut was telling me to begin with.

    I have white on white S and it's amazing. It just feels and screams clean every time you get in the car.

    I too have white on white and love it. And every single person who has seen it so far thinks it looks ultra sharp, clean and modern.

    As others have said there is enough color (well, black) in the interior with the dash, floor mats and headliner that it is nicely contrasted. Like a storm trooper!

    Enjoy the new car and I'm confident you will enjoy the color combo too

    Looks good, but I saw a white on silver the other day which looked amazing.
    All subjective of course.

    The car is fine.

    This, however, is too much:

    Also another negative is you can't drive it after Labor Day.

    Our new 100D is white on white - there is plenty of black in the cabin to offset it. The only downside is a lot of reflection from the white seats in the full glass roof, otherwise I love it! The material is much softer than the tan seats in our other Model S.

    I didn't realize the white seats weren't leather. Anyone have trouble with stains, getting dirty, etc. anyone with kids and white seats?? Also, can someone post a pic of the silver/white combo? That sounds awesome.
