    Ordering a HTC in late January is a possibility, but way too early to call it a probability, e.g., could instead start in early February.

    6 motors. One or each 1 cost how much to replace? Life expectancy of each motor? Is durability based on time or frequency of open/close operation? Both? Moisture? Inside outside? Do it yourself design? Need expertise?

    What have the great minds explored and discovered regarding this area of eventual interest to the HTC owner?
    The HTC’s motors are all electric ones, so little issues with their durability, and no hydraulic line leakage potential either. As to accessing its motor, take a small battery powered screw drill and remove 16 fasteners on the heat shield — so perhaps one minute to take it off, another minute to put that extra cover back on.

    Glad you are happy with the info, for the visualizer sometimes takes a while to “catch up.” When in doubt, I always rely on the Order Guide (not that it has been perfect, but very close to it especially after a week or two after a new model is included within it and it has been updated). In your case, having been to the HTC reveal and I talked with Harlan about this very subject, his pointing to HTC just a couple of feet away; he confirmed that “the customer gets to choose as to the “top of the nacelles’ color” (between body color and carbon flash black metallic).

    I'm also leaning toward SGM+ Spectra Trident wheels, but with Tan interior. I very much like the Convertible, bu not sure I want to wait.

    Thanks John..!!! Exactly what I was looking for. Visualizer shows black nacelles and roof.

    The Spectra Gray Tridents will look great with SGM imo.

    SGM with those wheels is my combo. Looking forward to March 2020

    They are what you are wanting (and willing to pay for @ $1,295 painted), i.e., do you want them body colored or do you want them carbon flash black? Note please that if you choose to have your nacelles be carbon flash black, they are only their top 2/3’s of the nacelles that are carbon flash, with the bottom roughly 1/3 always being body color.

    From the current edition of the Order Guide (which is the most definitive and accurate place to confirm or modify what is in the visualizer):

    Are nacelles body color or black? In visualizer they are black, in configurator they are body color.

    This color combo intrigues me but I will wait to the SGM in person in different lighting conditions before I choose. I like the natural interior but not sold on the two tone seats. HTC is a given 😃, coupe never a consideration.

    I think so TXLZ ... 22 sec mark in the video shows the reflection and it looks all grey to me

It is a great color and the wheels compliment that color very nicely. I've had red daily drivers for years, I'm tempted to switch
