hah, why is it so hard to post a picture?

Devin B | 19 juin 2013

sorry.... :)

The code is
Adding width="600" before the > will make the picture fit the frame

I was looking at the Vossens this morning. They are really nice. I may get them on my white MS.
Here's another picture of the blue Vossen MS

Below is the same link as an image insert using the code above. Notice that I'm linking directly to their picture which saves a bunch of steps in downloading, reposting, and linking..

NICE | 20 juin 2013

Oh, I see what happened. The other site protected the images from being displayed elsewhere. In cases like this, you'd have to link to your own image.
Here is the code again

I had to get a direct link to your picture and chose the 640 x 480 size.

Here's your picture using the code above.

Ugh! How am I supposed to tell you the code when it just puts a blank image there!

Replace "URL" with your picture link inside the " marks.
Replace "pixel size" with "600"

The car looks great, btw. It has a real "supercar vibe" to it like this. Wish they offered that color.

TheAustin | 20 juin 2013

I think it looks awful, and the spokes on the rims look like Popsicle sticks.

Devin B | 20 juin 2013

I am not attached to this exact blue, but I want a blue that is always blue, not black when it dark.

Elon, please give us a true blue color option!

Pretty please with sugar on top!!!

This makes a sophisticated, expensive sedan look like a Transformer. I DON'T LIKE! :P

The owner of this vehicle is trying way too hard.

hademarco | 20 juin 2013

I don't like it either. The Nissan Leaf has that color.

I saw one of these recently in Silicon Valley and thought it looked pretty good. Looks much better in real life than in that picture.

RedShift | 20 juin 2013

All it needs is a big wing, some purple and orange underside lighting, 25" deep dish chrome wheels with spinners, and 20k hid all around.

Then we can talk. This looks pretty tame.

;-)

Soul Plane on wheels LOL

Include the semicolons.

Nasty - Where's the BRZ nameplate?

carlk | 20 juin 2013

No matter whether you like the color or not you have to admit it will turn a lot of heads. There are just too many blacks and whites they are becoming pretty ordinary at least here in the SF Bay Area.

RedShift | 20 juin 2013

AR:

Tesla shd offer the 'soul plane package' for 6k additional.

'Your spinners will turn, and turn some heads too'!

NICE | 20 juin 2013

Lets try this one last time.
<img src="URL" width="600">
Replace "URL" with your picture link inside the " marks.

Brian,
Thanks for the tip. If it doesn't show correctly above, blame it on Brian.
Stop calling me Snail already... You've got to love it when a Snail can outrun all the Jaguars.

RedShift,
OK, the sarcasm worked. That would be fugly

>>Elon, please give us a true blue color option!
You can always have the car repainted. Not cheap but doable.

>>I saw one of these recently in Silicon Valley and thought it looked pretty good. Looks much better in real life than in that picture.
That was probably mine. I haven't seen any other custom colors so far.

Brian H | 20 juin 2013

Piercing blue!

TI Sailor | 20 juin 2013

Audi has a color available only to buyers of their "S" models called Estoril Blue. It looks like it's between Laurent's and Tesla's current blue offering and it's my 14-yr old son's favorite Audi color.

Devin B | 20 juin 2013

Laurent,

What is this car? THAT is the blue I want!!

You know you are just torturing me now right?

gasnomo | 20 juin 2013

Beautiful color blue...would love that.

Brian H | 20 juin 2013

For $3K you can get a wrap any color you want. And then another, and another!

Robert22 | 20 juin 2013

Seriously? If you're buying snowcone blue for the kids, you might as well throw in some cotton candy and a Willy Wonka book....

Laurent | 21 juin 2013

>>You know you are just torturing me now right?
Yes I do :-) [evil laugh]

>>For $3K you can get a wrap any color you want
Oracal has a nice metallic color called Night Blue (#196). It's a bit brighter than my blue.

I was picking up my car from the Menlo Park service center when I saw Roger Federer's custom blue MS. Supposedly he had it done by the factory and actually tried at least a couple shades of blue before finally deciding on this one. Just found this on instagram and this looks like its the same one I saw at Menlo: http://instagram.com/p/YmAkazSq6X/.

You should ask your order specialist what custom paint options are available to us normal folk.
