    Tesla likes showing off the white leather, but personally I don't really like it. Are you planning to get white?

    I'm considering the red/white, but I'm still mulling over the bluejeans issue.

    I wish it was available on non-sig series. I like light colored interiors. I'll probably go with tan but am waiting to see it up close.

    Yah, that's part of the reason I'm considering it (Sig exclusive).

    If I get the Signature I'll get it, as I suspect I'm one of the rare people who will be able to keep it clean. For me, light interiors are a must. I didn't like the look of the tan. I rather like the grey, though, so if I don't go with the Signature I'll get grey.

    I really like the white leather, but also have 4 kids, so probably not...
    Over the last 7 years, I have come to realize that it sucks having nice things and expecting them to last!

    My decision may change when we get more information, but for now it's the white.

    I'm not sure what I'll do. I'd like to see it in person and find out how hard it really is to keep clean or to clean if it gets dirty.
    I'd like to have maybe black seats with red rally style inserts on the performance package.

    I, too, will need to see the interior options in person before deciding. The jean issue is real, but haven't had a big problem with the tan interior on my q5. Traditionally I've liked darker interiors though.

    I'm not getting Sig, so I won't vote on this one. It looks really nice in the showroom, but don't think I would get it even if it was available to me. Too impractical...

    White looks fantastic but I can't even keep the tan interior on my Lexus clean...I think we're going with grey interior...won't look as nice, but will look cleaner far longer...

    White looks pretty cool, but I think I prefer black. I'll also have 3 kids when the Model S is released, so keeping it looking nice would be a bit of a chore...

    Nope! White gets dirty and I want to USE my car.

    I prefer Leather with Alcantara.

    I was thinking the Red with white interior would look great but not if it's that much of a pain to keep clean. I think tan or black leather may be the way I go.

    I looooove the white, but will go with tan or grey. Even on my Roadster I've had blue jean marks on my tan seats...they do come out but it's a PITA!:cursing:

    Just sent the e-mail. They say the white leather is an option but not if it will cost anything. I suggested that rally style seats either be the other free option or a paid option.

    That's exactly what I have in my Roadster, and it looks really sharp.

    That's what I wanted to do but when ordering, someone talked me into getting all black since the car is white with black wheels and CF accents. I'd love to get the white interior as well but think Signature red with black seats and red inserts would look sharp. Maybe they'll do the 'S' in Model S in a special stitching like they did for the Roadster Sport owners too.
