Would you pay for a black car with "flecks"

    I am traveling, so stopped in the Chicago Oak Brook location this evening. I cannot see any difference between the 2 available blacks. Is anyone going to spring for the obsidian? If so, what is the difference you see?

    FWIW, I am hoping that soon Tesla has more than 1 "no charge" color. It seems like they should/could just slightly raise the base price and offer a range of options. If I owned a car company, that's what I'd do! :rolleyes:

    I did with my BMW... the flat black is harder to keep clean and shows swirl marks more than the metallic blacks. I think they will sell over 50% obsidian in year 1 and eventually closer to 75% obsidian. If I owned a car company... I would have a coupe. :)

    If I owned a car company I'd offer his and hers packages.

    if it is metallic black looking with white flecks I would definitely order it instead of solid black. the reason why: it'll hide getting sandblasted like mine looks now:

    Metallic will be easier to keep up. Not a whole lot, but easier. And it's a little more fun than solid black. More on resale value too. But, solid Black is always a very luxurious choice and if well cared for, looks amazing and timeless.
