Definitely red. Lets have some COLOUR on the roads!!! So many cars in variations of white or black (greys). Black also shows every speck of dust. Strangely, white does not. As to 85 or 90, Depends on what your likely use is. if you only take the very occasional road trip, save your dough and go for the 85.

I agree with Dborn here, unless your desperate for the extra 6% range go for the 85kwh pack, the $6000 plus savings could be be better spent on solar/more solar/future home battery storage.
colour choice is a personal thing, and personally I love all the Tesla colours!!!

I'd reason that black would have the aircon working harder and therefore less range in warm weather. The solar suggestion is 100% the way to go. The red is especially nice IMO.

The results are in! RED!!!!! And in a last minute rush of blood - 90D!

Now just the interminable wait. The countdown has begun - 97-96-95...

Thanks for all your suggestions.

Congrats on the order! My personal preference is white, and that's what I ordered, BUT if I ordered a colour (and I nearly did), it would definitely be the red. Great choice :)
