    RFS was $3k. Also not sure if it was like this before, but for the P90D and P100D, premium upgrade package is $3.5k compared to $3k on other trims.

    Haven't tesla said that they now have a paint shop that can handle half a million cars per year, then why remove some of the colors when you have overcapacity?

    I would be really dissatisfied if that will not be corrected by Tesla soon.
    Most of my Teslas are/were solid white.
    The extra price for the multi-coat pearl-white is a nogo if there is just one standard colour (black).
    Imho WHITE with it´s clean appearance fits perfectly to the clean electric drive.
    Today my next car (Model X 100D in solid white) was pushed even more far, far away :eek:

    They also removed the accessory hitch option. Now one must order the full tow package.

    Wonder what the fate will be of my solid white w/ accessory hitch order. Free upgrades? Or will they continue producing them for existing orders?

    You'll probably still get white, they honor that typically, old paint requests. You may get the full physical tow package worst case for price of hitch, but likely hitch and no tow software enabled.

    They also seem to be all equipped with all-season tires.

    I find it extremely unlikely that Tesla has permanently stopped painting cars the solid white color. That is a very popular color choice for cars. Must be temporary. Can't imagine why though.

    Titanium Metallic was my favorite color. I hope it comes back.

    They also put the Smart Air Suspension Included and increased the base price ...

    Solid white is a very popular car color. Can't understand why Tesla would stop offering it. This reminds me of when Tesla stopped offering light silver, an even more popular car color. Several months later that silver was back as a color choice.

    The loss of Titanium Metallic is unfortunate. I see quite a few Teslas that color in my area. That is my favorite color and was my preference for my future Model 3.

    Mine is a Titanium Metallic Model X and I was hoping them to make touch-up paint. It seems that I cannot fix my scratch on my car.

    I have Midnight Silver Metalic. I found a perfect match on line. They send the paint-- mixed to the paint code, clear coat and polishing liquid. Also have specific instruction on their site to help get a perfect finish. When I completed and buffed scratches on my rear deck I could find any signs of them -- even in bright sun light. Here is the web site: Automotive Touch Up Paint from PaintScratch - Order Pro Grade Paint - PaintScratch.com
