That is quite close by my standards, since the nearest service center is 300 miles and a lot of mountains away. However, I have been very pleased with mobile service — having the work done in my garage by a ranger is way more convenient than making a two day trip over the mountains, and setting it up by text message is really easy. I also tend to learn a lot because I can watch the ranger work on my car.
My next service visit will be when mobile service gets replacement passenger side air bag inflators in for the Takata recall — they have done older cars and are now moving on to 2014 and 2015 builds (the limiting factor for Tesla, and other car brands, is the supply of replacement inflators). No need to make the long trek to the service center for that.

Blue isn't terrible, but not something I'd want to pay $1500 extra for. I'd rather have white for another $500, but the $2K extra in total for white is ridiculous compared to what at least non-luxury car makers charge for certain colors.
I think that the grey is pretty ugly but it is quite popular, go figure! As you likely know, plain white used to be a base color — it's what I have — but Tesla eliminated it; likely because (in my opinion) it was too popular and they wanted more people to pony up for an extra cost color.
For those who don't like the very limited Tesla color palette and the extra cost, you could always wrap or dip the car. It would also be an additional cost but you could then select any color you wanted and could change it from time to time.
