Got my Time to Build your Model S email today. First choice for color is Sunset Red, which looks horrible in all the pictures I've seen, but looked a lot different when we saw one live during the Get Amped tour. Unfortunately, I'm told they won't switch out the Signature Red paint nozzle (or whatever) to Sunset Red until ALL of the Sigs have been produced world-wide, and am not willing to wait that long. Next choice is the grey, but I've never seen one live. Given the dramatic difference in the red live, I'm worried that I could run the opposite problem with the grey, i.e., looks great in pictures, but in real life, not so much. Next problem is I'm told the nearest Tesla locations that have a grey car are California or Washington. Questions for the group: Has anyone gotten, or is anyone soon to get a grey car that is closer to Florida than California? As I typed I realized grey is not available for sigs, so I guess not. So next question, any have impressions of grey in real life vs grey in the design center? Thanks in advance.
