    Congratulations. That's the best colour, in my opinion, even though I ordered mine in white, since my S is grey. It also looks really good with the aero wheels with the hub caps off and the center caps and lug nut covers on. Then on trips you can put the hub caps on for more range. I really like that idea and how good it looks. I actually prefer the looks of those rims over the 19" ones.

    Very nice. Your panel alignment, from what we can see in the exterior photo, looks excellent, too! Congrats!

    Well done. Thanks to damage resulting from carelessness at the factory and/or during transport or at delivery center, you've leapfrogged me.

    The glory of the 90s, in case people aren't familiar with the thread title reference.




    @TEG I assume you blared this with the windows down right? :)

    TEG,
    Congrats on the car. The users manual says that you shouldn't put any kind of seat cover on due to possibly uneven wear. YMMV.

    A similar warning also made me decide not to participate in the TeslaFi thing. Most expensive car I ever owned by far, so not taking any chances.

    Nice! I'm starting to like the 18s w/o the aero covers. Congrats! Also, I have seen a lot of Model 3s now and none of them have had any significant issues. The panel gaps and alignment may not be 100% dead on, but they are certainly good enough that I would never notice or complain. Honestly, I've never even thought to look on my S. The issue is being massively overblown by shorts/traditional automotive journalists. That's not to say that some owners have not had issues. I'm sure there are some, but it does not seem to be a widespread problem. OP, that car looks great!

    You know I hate the bare areo's on my blue Model 3 but they look darn good with the color on your car!

    Think Tesla has really done us a solid by offering really great looking wheels as standard, but with easy on/easy off aero covers for longer range.

    Most all other manufacturers would charge several thousand dollars for a cool option like this.
