I am really liking it!
Well it's hard to say. The picture being very poor quality does not help. All I can say is, I ordered the Canyon Red with Ocean Coast interior. When I showed my (18 year kid) all the trucks shown on the website, he said "I'll take the Orange one". To me it looked more like a light metallic red. This certainly doesn't look like either! It looks like a deep red, not sure I like that.
Hope I get to see a real one in Canyon Red before I get mine (Nov 29, 2018).

I think it can look really sharp. I've been seeing some red teslas w/ white interior and they're very eye catching. I suspect this config will become more popular once we see more real world pictures of it. It's a daring color, but I think it works.

You got in early
Good for you
I didn't find out about it for a few days so darn
But here's my opinion
Like the red but it's a dark color
Dark colors suck in Phoenix and off-road
I'm going white
I'm getting a wrap I like white so I'm getting a clear wrap
If anyone is on the fence about a color
Go white
Ask a person who does wraps
They will say white is a good base color
Then go wild
Wraps are anything you want exactly what you want and can make you a one and only
(Until someone Copies you which means you did good) most McLarens are wrapped :)
Plus a wrap gards the paint from desert pinstripes and Apparently you can get self healing the only bummer is going to be not having my baby for a few days to get it done
Just my thoughts
Is it JUNE yet

On average how much does a wrap cost?

Yeah, I might get it wrapped in clear PPF (Personal Protection Film). I just had my 2021 Tesla Y wrapped with it and it looks great, makes the car look like it's been polished. A PPF wrap will cost you upwards of $5,000! So not cheap. A color change wrap, that does not protect as well as the PPF, was going to be about $3,000.

How long did it take?

From what I've heard the problem with PPF as opposed to something like Vinyl is that when you need to remove/replace the PPF it is likely to strip the clear coat off your vehicle. So you're either forced to re-PPF it in perpetuity, or pay to re-apply a clear coat.

Not ideal, for sure.

Just curious what they give for a warranty for that PPF wrap.
