    It's definitely got some purple undertones, but it is unmistakably blue, HROI!

    I am never going to own a Ferrari. There, I said it.

    I'm not sure I will always own one but it's something every sports car enthusiast should do once in their lifetime.

    Blue is my first choice for all the modern 8's.

    Grigio Scuro which is a little darker than Grigio Medio, is better.

    I normally love blue cars, but the 458 is too aggressive looking for blue, MC12 is much better.

    Black cars are cool, but they are a fucking hassle to keep clean.

    ADV1 has a matt white CLS63, which looks evil and I normally don't like matt or white.

    I bought a white car once, never again. I've had a few in black, and wouldn't mind getting another. Been stuck on silver for the last several cars; it may be time for a change.

    I went to a Tesla dealer today. Must admit, I am very impressed with the car. Its simple, refined, seems to be well constructed. The center of gravity is super low.

    I guess I knew this before, but seeing the car in person and able to really get into the details, its very simple. Look at a normal car and its engine, trans, exhaust, fuel tank, cooling, etc. The electric car is basically a battery and motor. It really hit home how this simplicity will eventually win out.

    has anyone driven this car yet? i expect it to handle like shit because of all the weird weight distribution, and much of my enjoyment of driving a car comes from the roaring, induction, ticking and mechanical feel of it, so i have a feeling i'd dislike it. but i've read that it has mega torque and is super impressive off the line.

    Tysons Corner? Tesla is really rustling auto dealers' jimmies by having their own boutiques instead of dealerships.

    Politely disagree. Though it's not a bad choice.

    They have a formal dealer in DC that test drives.

    The service location is in Maryland.

    Have been thinking about car colors of late, and which are common and which are not. The spate of 'retro' American muscle cars has pushed a lot of the uncommon primaries back into the forefront -- yellow, for instance is all over the Challengers and Camaros.

    I've spent a lot of time in a white company car, (I had the responsibility to keep it clean); white is awful for anything one puts any sort of mileage on. Matte white, I admit is cool, saw a matte white SL65 AMG in Arlington once, parked on the sidewalk pretty as you please.Ferrari red is iconic, but that's about it -- all the Ferraris Ive seen that are truly stunning have been some other hue; black is nie, but I have a decided preference for blue. Once saw an absolutely stunning 328 in blue. Amazing. I know it's not much of a Ferrari to most, but it is a stunning looking thing.

    I think Silver is the most common car color these days; purple the least common.
