    The factory chrome delete should be standard on all vehicles

    Not picking on you at all @glide, but I wish folks would just call it "black trim" instead of chrome-delete. No one ever the standard trim on all the Corollas and Ford Fusions out there"chrome-delete" ... ;) Jus'sayin

    Does anyone know why the black trim under the bumper is so low that it is very close to ground. Or is that optical illusion?

    Also for the person who too these pics, did they get any sense of M-Y dimensions? vs M-3? How high, how long/wide?

    I took the pictures. Yes, the tires were as described. Having it parked next to a low slung 2020 Roadster prototype made it look very tall.

    I own a Model 3 and Y looks significantly taller but the proportions still look great. It really does come across as a taller Model 3

    The photos that show both the Roadster and the Model Y together make the Roadster appear surprisingly large and the Model Y disappointingly small. I trust that is only a matter of the photo angle with Roadster in foreground.

    Well Y is a ‘compact’ SUV and 2020 Roadster is roomy for a Roadster, and they both look well proportioned to the task. Personally I wish the new Roadster was a little smaller. I think many many people will like the size of the Y

    The New Roadster will be a 4 seater. May be good for small children and qualify for lower insurance premium in many markets. Porsche has been doing this forever with their 911.
