    Hello, @ngtech . This is a very personal decision.
    I have now seen both in Palo Alto on the T≡SLA HQ parking lot and, though they both look great!

    I for one am a definite Midnight Silver aficionado - the other is too much of a typical Daimler color for me (Silver Arrows)!!

    Some on the other hand love the Silver as they fell in love with the color on the 3/31/16 first reveal... (right, @TrevP ? ;))

    Here is #101 - the red car with the SLUW ('somewhat less ugly' 18'' wheels)... :D

    Thanks so much for the great input! I've definitely been partial to the midnight silver color for quite some time, but the reveal definitely made me highly consider the silver. I guess I'll wait for more pics (and hopefully seeing it in person) before I make a decision. Thanks!

    I hope Testa can take out the auto drive feature because it could cost Tesla a lot of money. It opens up for more law suits. Car owners don't really care much about this feature.

    Hi Kho and welcome to the forum.
    Remember the Autopilot hardware comes for free yet will not be active unless you purchase the EAP software option no one forces you to take.

    Therefore you only this who 'care' enough will have it.

    I would add that the functionalities are only being added gradually, when T≡SLA feels sufficiently comfortable with the accumulated data from current cars on the road that it can be safely rolled out.

    Autopilot will ultimately reduce accidents, not increase them.

    Is autodrive the same as autopilot?

    Don't know 'autodrive'. There is 'Enhanced Auto Pilot' with limited functionalities... and Full Self Driving which is the ultimate plan where the car drives itself from point A to point B without driver intervention...

    Sharing this with a combination of excitement and skepticism... VIN #301?! Well, I guess that's not that crazy on 8/25, right? ;)

    After the beautiful red, you're still doubting this is a G.O.R.G.E.O.U.S. color... I give you... Midnight Silver, oh yeah!!!
