In this colour combo, photo 1 or 3. I would prefer Mission E with paint to match outers, but I see you're going for a more muted aggressive look.

Yes exactly, I am looking for the sportiest look possible. With #3 the Airblades (exclusive design) I am worried it looks good in the configurator but in real life it covers up to much of the brakes/caliper and doesn't have that much of a depth. I get it is because of aerodynamics and range, but getting a couple of miles more range is not one of my concerns.

Me neither, dont really like the standard mission E, but love it in this satin platinum combo with the chalk exterior. But it is the more expensive of the options ($10,000) as they make you upgrade the brake setup to PSCB in a car that doesn't even use its brakes and can't get color on them (only white and black) unless you go ceramic which looks amazing but increases the wheel setup to $15k which might be too much

Owwch! Indeed, I see it now. You need the rims, the brake upgrade and the colour. 10K I would not do, you can get fantastic OEM or aftermarket solutions for far less.

Yes, and the PSCBs are not even larger than standard brakes, you would have to go ceramic for that. Configurator still shows the 10 piston 2020 but 2021 PSCB option is 6 piston nearly identical in size to standard brakes which makes me doubt why they make you do the upgrade if visually it will be the same.

DIdn't know about the smaller PSCBs for MY2021. They are absolutely huge on 2020 cars and look amazing.

In that case, I'll change my vote to photo 1! Take the standard brakes in red, and spend the money on the wheels.

Don‘t know the wheels‘ mass/weight by heart. The Vossen S21 should come with a lower mass. I have read some reports about scratches and little damages to the Mission E caused by road dirt. But both sarin Mission E and S21 look great.

NICE man, looks incredible. Chalk + Mision E Satin Platinum??? would be the first one I've seen delivered. How do you like them?

satin platinum looks a bit lighter in tone and shinier than in the configurator, I was thinking just a bit darker and more matte.

I’m very happy! Indeed Chalk, mission E satin platinum. I found the wheels the most complicated, and always tricky just only having a view in the configurator, but I love the result!

Just go with the cheapest wheels possible in the configurator cuz you'll change them anyway.
If you like the Mission E wheels just buy them separately (around €4K) cuz you can't order them without upgrading the brakes (ridiculous, right?).
Paint them in the color you like.
I think the Mission E wheels look absolutely great in this pic (gun metal would be even better!).
Second is the Vossen EVO2! Superb!
All the others: meh...

Mission E satin/chalk/platinum. Looks incredible with that caliper cover. Nicest chalk I've seen.

yes, I think I am definitely between mission e and the Evo2, definitely would go with Mission E if they didn't make me spend an extra $5k on brakes in a color I don't even want.
