Nothing else looks like it on the road in .. including at night in the dark. Look at that light reflection effect. 🤩

That's what I called a proper satin sheen! :D

That's one method of doing quality checks I guess...

I hope I can opt to turn off the rear light bar when I'm not decelerating. I'd like to reserve it only for brake light so as to be more obvious (unconfusing) that cars behind me need to start slowing down. The feature I'd like to see is a brake light that grows in width as deceleration increases. Just a small center section for light regen braking, expanding to nearer full width to indicate maximum stopping effort.

🤷🏽

I love the bare SS look but I might consider doing a full body stealth PPF to protect it from scratches while preserving the natural satin sheen 🤓

I love how people want to protect it from scratches even though the hardened SS is supposed to be harder than most other surfaces around. It certainly shouldn't scratch as easily as normal auto paint. I'm guessing that PPF will scratch or rip before the SS will.

I may stripe or decorate, but not a full wrap. SS is the coolest and like a P51 the silver will be great.

Tesla was very specific on the exterior sheen of the SS exterior panels. Not too shiny, not too dull.

The Goldilocks principle was definitely applied. I think they nailed the sheen factor!!!

Do what thou wilt...

As for me and mine, we will spend our hard-earned on the necessities of life, letting our stainless implements, including pots and pans and knives, forks, spoons and Cybertrucks develop the mature patina we expect to find on those well-made tools.

I’m going to drive my detailer crazy trying to polish my CT.
