    Midnight Silver, larger wheels (??), red calipers... could this be real... or is this again a bad Photoshop impersonation?! :rolleyes:

    Though we've seen Deep Blue #173, this Red with UWCs #141 has its place in this collection! ;)

    Photoshop, and not even good photoshop. If your rear wheel angles in like that, I highly suggest not driving.

    I'm confused, I thought only the premium package had the heated seats yet the description says this one does as well?

    @Drzzden , allow me first to extend a warm welcome to you on our Teslarati forum.
    If you please, tell us a bit about yourself by posting a thread here (are you current T≡SLA owner or reservation holder, when did you join the evergrowing crowd of EV enthusiasts, and/or any other piece of info you care to share! ;))

    We understand heated seats to be standard on front seats. The Premium package then adds heated seats in the back. :)

    Well I fall into one of the "I wanted to reserve a year ago but didn't do it" clubs sadly. Just reserved it as of August and super excited as we switched over to driving a 2011 Volt in '14 and a '16 last year. I always push to go as far as possible on electric because I live under the ethos that it is about no longer harming the environment with our vehicle. Both my wife and I are current active duty Navy so we have the chance to move around which might hurt us but I felt as of August that, of the places we could get stationed, most have Superchargers at or close by for road trips. Definitely excited to be a part of the group!

    Thinking of all you guys who need to have a front plate (some of the Lower 48, most of us in Europe, others...)

    This would be the look... Not great yet what can you do... the law is the law... ;)

    Well, here in Texas it isn't really enforced. So I hope they don't install it for me. Haven't had one in 25 years and never been pulled over for it.

    One of the reasons they love them here in Europe is that the police are like paparazzi... They like to take pics of your (speeding) car from front & back!! ;)

    Though only the rear plate is the official one! :rolleyes:

    This has a bit of a 'his and hers' notion to it... ;) And am not saying which is whose! :)

    White with UWCs partnering with Midnight Silver in Sports wheels... nice!
