    I've seen a few roadsters with a white vinyl graphics low on both sides of the car. Maybe about 4" tall. The go from the front of the rear quarter panel, across the door, and thru the back of the front fender (wheel opening to wheel opening.) Who makes these graphics?

    I'm not sure but apparently you can order them from Tesla.

    I just tried to order them from Tesla NYC and the girl said they were an aftermarket item...Has anyone ordered a set from Tesla before? If so, which location?

    I remember being offered them by Tesla in FL. In any case it would be easy enough to get them from any sign shop.

    Tesla NY has been able to get these before. Maybe before the woman you talked to started working there.

    Wish I could help out. If I had $60K it would be going to a used Roadster myself.

    Anyways:

    I hope they have something like this for the Model S.

    Though not in white, because it wouldn't really show up on my white car, would it....

    They have this exact lettering in black as well for the Roadster.

    Did any Roadster owner ever put the graphics on their personal vehicle? (Tesla put the graphic on their demo and media cars, afaik.) I remember someone talking about it once, but they eventually decided not to do so.

    Yes, AFAIK the blue one is not a factory owned car...

    Also probably the gray one shown earlier in this topic.
