White paint is $2k. Gray or Blue is $1500 and Red is $2500.

It's ironic, they've perfectly copied Apple's business model of merging technology with style/fashion, yet the stock was down because investors feel the "price drop" means the Model 3 won't be the next iPhone.

It's white pearl. 3 stage paint, I think. White, pearl coat, then clear coat, for added "depth" I'm buying transportation, not a painting or a tatoo that's art work.

You can remove the wheel cover. The wheels underneath don't look bad at all. Here's a pic with the covers removed, lug covers and center cap added:
