    I had a Tesla Grin in my first ride way back in the Spring of '09 when I got a ride in an Alpha. I had a HUGE Tesla Grin when I drove a car at the Get Amped event this summer.

    I got my "time to deliver" email today, and seem to have a whole new Tesla Grin. Sure, I don't have the car yet, and I have to work out some financing matters, but I'm beaming! Two people have commented.

    So, I'm dubbing this the "Other Tesla Grin;" The one you get after years of patiently waiting, when you know the wait is basically over!

    I am utterly unable to concentrate. I'm pacing waiting for this call from Tesla to finalize details.

    Congrats! I've had the Tesla grin today too for something much smaller. I can't imagine how I'll feel when I get the time to deliver email.

    Those were the two color combos I wanted but couldn't decide, I got grey since I've never had a grey car
    I think they are really nice

    Grey looked very nice, but was looking for a change - my 2004 TSX is grey...

    Why not Blue/Tan! (popular combo for Ferraris)

    I don't know; it looked good (that was the combo that I got to test drive at Oakbrook during the Get Amped Tour) but it just didn't grab me. I am leaning more towards the Blue/Black due to the rugrats (7 yo and 4 yo boys :smile:)

    I take some comfort in hearing that I'm not the only one who might as well not have showed up at the office today. :biggrin: 85kWh, Green, tan, lacewood, pano, tech, sound+, 19", armor.

    That's me! Blue/Tan. The wife doesn't agree but she gets to decide on the X. This one mine. Glad to hear I'm not the only Blue/Tan guy.
