I'm still not sure which paint color I will pick once my configuration invitation comes. It would be nice to see paint colors in person. Any idea if the showrooms have, or are going to have, paint samples for the Model 3 colors?

Same as Model S colours.
But you should really see them on the car itself. The actual shape of each model makes it come out differently.
I find Midnight Silver dullish on Model S, but like it on (pictures of) Model 3. Have to see it in real life on the whole car under different lighting before I can decide.

Yes, as @MichelT3 said they are the same colors available on Model S/X, so all showrooms have the samples. The samples are not that big and of course not outside in the sun, so it’s not an exact science. The lines of the car play a big impact on how the light reflects on the car as well, which is why the same color can look different between S, 3, and X.

Paint samples in showrooms? It will be nice to see actual Model 3's in showrooms! ;-)

The showrooms I've been to don't even have those fancy samples with the car shapes in them. They are just blobs up on the wall. Useless. I really do wish we could see the 3 in all the colors outside away from showroom lighting before we had to pick a color but... I will still be ordering sight unseen.
