Tesla claims they read these forums. Apparently not. They are continuing their price gouging with $1000 ransoms to paint the car anything other than basic black. And they still do not have a plain white color, just the pearl white, which I am not sure I like. So for my model 3, I really only have 2 choices. Get the silver metallic which is ok but not amazing, or maybe the pearl white, which I am not excited about, and I believe the pearl white would be harder to paint match in the event of an accident and repair. I have other complaints about the wheels and battery, but another topic for those.
