    Hi everyone,

    It’s my first time on the forum and am ordering my mode 3 as soon as I figured out my color!!

    Does anyone have real pics of the red or blue car with aero wheels? Particularly, looking for the blue because I’ve seen a few good ones of the red.

    Note: On the last one, I hit "auto" in google photos editing, so it looks a bit more chrome-ish than IRL.

    If you have a Tesla facility nearby, try dropping in and looking at the options. Delivery Centers will have buches of Model 3 right now.

    Blue or red looks stunning. Best colors on the 3 IMO.

    Does the stock tires come with red brake calipers too?

    On the performance model, yes. Otherwise no.

    I think red and blue are the best looking colors. It was a hard choice between the two. We decided I'd get blue and my wife's future Model Y is going to be red.

    Dope pics! Thank you everyone!!

    They both look so good. But I think I'll go with the red!

    Hope it still pops in the shade... Would love any of those pics if anyone has those :D

    Not sure that's true- I think only the performance models that add the 5k upgrade package get the upgraded brakes.

    Standard wheel Ps get the same brakes as everyone else.

    I have a blue one and my wife just ordered a red one. There's also a red one at my local showroom. Both of them look better in person than in pics. The aero wheels look better in person too but not as good as the 19's IMO. I think I'd give a slight edge to the red one. It's a really beautiful color.

    Yeah you're right. Not even an option on non-P models, and an option on Ps.
