    I know I do not own a Tesla but I have been following the company long enough to at least have an opinion. Asides battery sizes, there have not been too many major changes with the options selection. I understand Tesla most likely removed some options because they weren't making a big enough profit, there was low interest or it was a hassle to manufacture.

    The two option I miss the most for the Model S is the dark green colour and the option for the rear seats.

    I think one of the best colours Tesla made was that dark, forrest, metallic looking green. I have only seen one Model S in person with that colour and I fell in love with it! I think Tesla should bring back a green colour... After all, they are a green company.

    The second thing I miss is the option for what seating arrangement you wanted/needed for the second row. If I recall correctly, Tesla offered an option where your Model S could have 4 seats. By the look of it, it was like the "next generation leather seats" but in the second row. It also included a folding down arm rest with cup holders... I think. My memory is a little hazy because they discontinued this option roughly over a year ago.

    The dark green color on the S is the color of money.... It was discontinued the same time that the brown one was discontinued...

    I'm partial to this dark green

    that is the Roadster Signature Green color.

    The rear seats in 4 seat configuration was called the Executive Rear Seating... I think it was a plan for the China market that didn't take off...

    Here's an article on it.

    My "dolphin" grey was also discontinued. I don't like the new grey nearly as much and would have to go with another color next time.

    That green was my second choice
