I live in the Netherlands and have placed an order with my lease company for a Model S about half a year ago. I have a delivery date (from lease company, not Tesla, btw) on November 1st.
In the Netherlands, we only have had a couple of actual Model S cars "visit" our country for a few days. I managed to see a Sig Red with white interior, and a white/black, but no other colors. For myself I have chosen brown as the exterior color, with black leather interior (and pano roof). I usually go for the more "excentric" colors, should perhaps have gone with the green, but it has been impossible to form an idea of how that color looks in real life from watching photo's and YouTube footage.
So brown it is, and I am happy with that. But it is the interior color that I am constantly fretting over. I have chosen black leather for the following reasons: 1.) I think grey and brown don't mix and 2.) tan and brown _could_ go well together, or clash horribly, all depending on the "timbre" of both colors. Based on the photo's, the "configurator" on the website, and the small patch of leather I saw at the local Tesla center, my fear is that the tan color that Tesla offers is too "yellow" to go well with the brown exterior.
But as time progresses, I am starting to second guess this decision. I don't like that I choose black not because I think it's beautiful (actually I think it's a bit boring and the car as a whole may be too dark), but because I was afraid the alternatives would be worse.
So although I very much realize it's a luxury problem, I would like to ask the help of the Tesla owners on this forum, especially the ones that have chosen the brown exterior. Is there any advice you could give me on the interior color you picked? And I would really LOVE some photo's of brown cars with an open door where you could see both exterior and interior color at the same time - in any of the three leather colors, really.
I appreciate any feedback I may get. Thanks in advance!
