    I was vacillating between white and red, but I hadn't seen the red in person....I think I'm going to go with white after seeing red in the sunlight. Not sure what it is, but something doesn't grab me with the red when seeing it in person. Although the blue in sunlight is really nice too. Lot of nice depth and shine.

    We had the same feeling. I think red looks great in the showroom, but we had a red Model X loaner and felt it looked dull outside. Could have been cause it was a cloudy day though. We had a Blue Model S and loved it. Looked fantastic in the showroom and outside when it was sunny and the car was clean. Got lots of compliments.

    We opted for white this time on the X and think its a great color. Great when clean, still decent when dirty. Decided to order the 3 too in white, which is why it's taking so long with my order.

    Are they behind in making whites? I configured 2/22, also doing White/18" like you, so I guess it'll be an even longer wait for me to get my VIN since you configured 1/27?

    Sorry Gecko... It looks like cars delivered in Austin are coming in on I-10 based on a couple of conversations I've had. That also explains the truck of Model 3's spotted in San Antonio last seek that ended up in Austin. If you have a delivery next week, I would expect a truck to show up in San Antonio in the next day or so. I still haven't found our VIN at the Austin SC yet, but I think I know which was the other red one on the truck. It definitely sounds like deliveries are really starting to ramp up in Texas, though.

    Picked my car today at North Houston SC. The delivery process was a breeze and the coordinator was very knowledgeable. In and out in 45 minutes. Configured on 01/11 (Midnight Silver, EAP, 18 inch) so it took 8 weeks for car to be delivered. A nice surprise was a Red miniature die cast Model 3 was in the center cabin.

    Car was absolutely fun to drive and I can't wait for EAP to be activated.

    SC texted me today and said I might be able to get my car next Friday maybe. I'm supposed to be leaving town and heading up to Dallas on Friday around noon. Preparing myself for the fact that I won't get it until Monday the 19th, when I was supposed to be taking it in to get wrapped and tinted, which was already rescheduled from this week because of the paint scratch. First world problems...

    :(

    Well, as long as it shows up, guess it doesn't matter if I got a sneak peek or not...

    Currently in Lindale supercharging
    I’ve always wanted to go to one of those. Austin is a tad far though.

    Hope you get your car soon

    I swung by the North Houston SC yesterday to scope out colors they happened to have a Model 3 in. They had 3 in White (top VIN 74xx btw) and it, even when it's got some dust on it, does look good...until I get to the roof. The PUP's dark roof with only the white bar down each side doesn't do it for me. :( They didn't have a silver Model 3 but I'm guessing it'll have the same issue for me.

    The black (which they had one of) is inoffensive but quite bland, not surprising. They had a Midnight and a couple blues, both of which looked classy yet I still find the Midnight "meh". Sadly they didn't have a red Model 3, I'll check again next week when I'm in the area.

    So at this point I'm leaning towards blue, which is very much not what I was expecting. It really does look great on the Model 3 in person.
