    See the link below for the same product with the updated color choices.

    As a pearl white multi coat Model 3 owner, I’m a little hesitant to buy because according to the kit, the color is simply “white”, not “pearl white multi coat”. Can anyone confirm if this will look seamless with the paint on my car? Is it the same color? The same goes for red.

    Good catch. The white now being sold as a kit is *not* the pearlescent white.

    The pearlescent white paint code is PPSW.

    So what you’re saying is, this wouldn’t match up with the pearl white multi coat Model 3?

    If I'm going to spend over $60 including tax and shipping for a vial of paint and some supplies, I would prefer that the paint code matches the paint on my car, yes.

    And as a pearl white car owner, having acquired 2 or 3 chips over 15 months, I would rather order this or a larger variant thereof unless and until Tesla adds the pearl white paint code.

    I bought the typical, inexpensive black touch up bottle last year for my S. Now they have done away with it and created this pricey kit. Greed.
