This thread is perfect for me, as the blue-vs-red is the hardest part of the whole ordering process to decide for me... silly really
Although I like the red most, I think the blue suits the Model 3 shape best, in my eyes. I love the styling and proportions of the Model 3 except for one unusual detail - the ‘snub’ nose. The dark metallic paint seems to hide this and your photo shows it perfectly: the top surface of the nose takes on a smooth elegant look reminiscent of an Aston Martin DB9, while the front flatter surface (where you’d expect a grille to be) just disappears. Red or white make that front surface too obvious for me.
I’d have liked a dark bottle-green option, but the blue is my pick of what’s available.
Most of may past cars have been red and always looking fo a change. Have been wanting to go blue for a while. For me the Tesla's Deep Metallic Blue is just a little too dark. So it was more of a toss up between red and white with blue in 3ed. Also I just finished ceramic coating (or I'm finishing today).
