    Yes, I'm from the Chicago area but that has noting to do with my comment. I said I took a road trip, which was NOT around the Chicago area. Clearly the sun is more intense in areas closer to the equator you get but thanks for the science lesson. Not everyone lives in those climates so I was trying to add some perspective for others to your comments and your "local" observations.

    Someone just started a thread on the topic of glass roofs. I just posted over there that my brother in Atlanta got a Model 3 with a glass roof last fall. He was wondering how the arrival of warm weather would affect its comfort. So far he finds it fine. In fact, he says that unless he remembers to look up, he is not even aware of the glass roof.

    I also mentioned over on the new thread that your comments about the Model X didn't specify where you took your road trip, although you live near Chicago. I wasn't suggesting your opinion of the glass roof was wrong. I was just pointing out that my experience in south Florida has been different and that location might play a role.

    Nor was I trying to be pedantic with the "science lesson". In fact, as I was posting I got curious about whether my subjective impression of stronger sun in Naples reflected a true difference in the amount of sun energy, so I looked up the topic. I was surprised to find how pronounced the figures actually were and thought others might find it equally interesting.

    I really wish more upcoming EV's gave buyers the choice of a glass or metal roof.

    From the first time I saw the photos of the R1S and R1T, I have wanted to see the R1T in green, and have been thinking that would be the color I order. A darker shade of green would be ok also, like BRG - especially if it is metallic.

    The copper is intriguing also, but I would have to see one to decide.

    Just sold my F150 in anticipation of buying a Jeep Gladiator. That is, until I found you guys. Currently driving a 19 Mitsubishi Elcipse Cross because they had 0% financing. Also, a couple Harleys in the garage.

    Hoping for a few flat colors...Jeeps Gobi or Sting Gray. I think they would go well with the adventure theme of these trucks.

    Volvo has a nice Maple Brown. That is what color I currently have and really like it.

    I'm split on whether to get the R1T or S.. at the moment I'm leaning toward the R1S. I saw a very pale periwinkle color somewhere that I really liked, but haven't been able to find the image again. It was spacey, futuristic and very pleasing to the eye. I really like the white with black roof too for the R1S... super sexy, but I don't like white for cars in general so probably wouldn't get one in that color.

    The light blue metallic is also really pretty, or light seafoam green... those are my choices.
