Not to nitpick, but it would be cool if the car’s icon in the top left corner actually matched the color of the car (in this case, red).
I completely agree with this nitpick.

Perhaps its user-selected or something but probably an oversight. Given that the app and MyFord Mobile site know the car color by VIN it seems like this should be easy enough to do even without having to set it at the factory.

And there is an urban legend, in France at least, that says insurance is higher for driving a red car… 😂
It would be a lot more for a boy. 🤣

The same is true here in the US. There is also the belief that the police pull over red cars more often other cars. Apparently it is not actually true, but it is hard to say.

Here's the original:

You can see it is only connected at the front.

Here are two shots of the trough style that seems to be what we will get:

The handle was getting broke off at the plant also. Lines, hoses, people putting on parts catching them. It was nice design for looks but not for strength.
I much prefer the winglet model, but I understand the reason for the switch up.

Without actually testing it, my initial thought is I would prefer a pop-out handle, rather than one that sticks out like the MME style.

Seems that we are going to need a long-lasting supply of 'tire-wet' in the trunk/frunk. It really makes the car look different when the tires are shiny.
noticed that earlier when I saw it in Rotterdam (pic’s a few pages back).
I bought the RWD so I don’t have the glossy finish on the black things around the wheelcasing.

I guess once they realized how many hazards the winglet handle could cause (mentioned above in thread) that it may have been too late to engineer pop up handles, so they just stuck the new [ugly] cup handles on the door. Just my honest guess.

Until they freeze shut in the first freezing rain or sleet storm. That’s been a real issue for Tesla.
