Tesla didn't listen to me on paint colors and prices.

    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.

    You have other choices....
    (1) Don't buy a model 3 and buy a car from a company that is doing 100% what you want
    (2) Go manufacture your own car to your exact specifications

    Just think of it this way. For $37,500 (same price as a base Bolt) you get the choice of any paint and wheels.

    Sigh, are we not only going to have a thread for each member with complaints... but a thread for each complaint???

    The car looks great and is well priced. You want it or you don't. Plenty will.

    I'm so sorry Tesla didn't listen to you. I hope you'll be okay.

    Doing custom paint job isn't really that expensive.

    I plan to mostly sit inside my car so I cannot see the color, thereby I don't really care about the exterior color.

    I think I need to take a break from the forum. Posts like this are driving me mad.

    It's because you're in the poor folks section. Come on over to S and X land and you'll find the tone different. Unfortunately but true. Not entirely free of stupidity but there is less of it.

    LMAO.

    This isn't a forum run by Tesla. If you have a complaint, write a letter to them and put it in the mailbox.

    Did you make a elon promised me a spaceship but this still feels more like a car complaint thread yet?
