    Check out the configurator. I feel like instead of model years, Tesla should move to model days.

    My dashboard pic for reference (old blue). I think their color is a better representation of my blue than the dash picture.

    Midnight silver looks like a lot like the newer grey that is also gone.

    So 9 colors to 7? Maybe that means two new ones are in the works.

    Is the Midnight Silver the old "new" gray? Or is what was yesterday the "new" gray now just an old gray?

    This is just getting ridiculous. It makes me think that there's something weird with their internal approval structure. You'd think if all the changes that went into effect yesterday were actually approved through all the proper channels they'd at least stick to their proverbial guns for a bit longer than ~36 hours.

    Was in the store tonight and got told these three colors (Solid White, Silver [old], and Blue [old]) were going away. The grey is unchanged (other than the name) from the current grey (otherwise known as new grey or steel grey and now known as midnight silver). Warm Silver has been renamed to Titanium (which was the name we were calling from leaks). Ocean Blue is now Deep Blue. Name changes are per an email from Elon according to the store employee.

    Please, only $1000 for choice of color on a $75,000 car. I'd get dinged for a $4000 package from Toyota to have a choice of color on a $25,000 car.

    At least Tesla lets you put any option you want on any trim level. And at that the prices aren't insane for most options.

    Almost any option.

    P85D exclusives (as of right now and of course subject to change).

    • Spoiler
    • Red Brake Calipers
    • 21" Silver Turbine Wheels (which is really strange)

    yeah if you want to nitpick you could talk about the trim on the outside of the car that is chrome if you have the tech package and not chrome if you don't and so on.

    I'm happy with the configurability of the base model.

    May as well make all colors an optional extra.
    The car comes in black, unless you pay an extra 1K to get a choice :)
