    I was on Team Blue for about 4 years. I think I have switched to Team Red. About to pull the trigger on Model 3 Performance (with 20" wheels). Let's see your best pics of the best color and reason(s) why.

    Blue all the way! Just kidding. I went blue, but red was a close second. My father-in-law is going red, so we'll have both in the family. You can't go wrong with either.

    Here are some pictures of mine.

    I was on the fence. I went with blue but red tempted me. For me, blue looks better with the Aero wheels and red looks better with the silver. Just my opinion.

    Not a big fan of the Aeros. I think they look best on Midnight Silver. I also think the red looks a little better in lower light.

    It's all different in person. On a computer screen, I prefer the blue. Just barely. In person, it's hands down the red.

    Am I the only person who finds that red unattractive. Look at this for comparison...

    You won't be the only person. As with red vs. blue, preferences for different red shades is different. The Model 3 red looks different in different photos and it depends on the screen you're viewing it on - I look forward to seeing it in real life.
