    Did anybody see the change made to the site? What is obsidian black metallic? Cooling seats are gone too, even though I heard they didn't actually do anything.

    Interesting they removed them but kept the price the same. The PUP seems like even less of a value now. I wonder if the actual seats will change as well.

    Sparkly black.

    I think this color option has been available from day one.

    I wish they'd break PUP up into Health and Luxury packages. The Health package would offer HEPA and Bio mode.

    I can only think enough people did not want the holes in the seats, worry over spills with kids.

    The $4,500 PUP felt steep even with the ventilated seats.

    I don't think you guys understand the purpose of these options/packages. They're designed to maximize the number of options a manufacturer sells to the consumer. They package them up that way so that if a consumer really wants one or two options, they have to pay for a bunch more.

    It's kind of like TV Channel bundling. I may only want ESPN, but I also have to pay for The Cooking Network, The Woman's Network and 'The History of Ukranian Miniature Doll Making' Network.

    I'm not saying that I agree with it, but it is what it is. If consumers don't like it, then can make a huge statement with their pocket books (e.g. cut the cord, or not get the options). Dealers will have to change their practices if most consumers rebel.

    Obsidian black has always been paint choice for both the X and S.

    My bad, i guess I just never noticed it.

    So what will happen with my order? I added the PUP and it still shows on My Tesla page. Should I still get it?

    Solid Black may have been added, but Titanium and Silver are gone for both S and X

    There haven't been any changes to the colors offered since Solid White and Titanium were dropped last fall. Silver is still available.

    I love the cooling seats in my Acura.

    Does this mean I don't get them in my previously ordered Model X (ordered mid-December)?

    You should still get them if you ordered them.

    I'm both intrigued and scared to learn what kind of commercials are on that network.

    ...actually, Obsidian Black was introduced in mid-2015. We actually changed my wife's 2015 S70D order to get the new color (see sig below).

    There never was a Green Model X, though... ;)

    Colors have not changed recently, OP, only the ventilated seat option.
