I was watching some Model X seat demonstration videos and it occurred to me that the 3rd row occupants could hit the arrow key (located on the 2nd row seat side) and make the 2nd row occupants uncomfortable by pushing them forward and tilting the seats, thereby squishing them :eek:

I could see dumb kids doing this to each other. Is there anything to prevent the 3rd row occupants from messing with the position of the 2nd row seats?

I think: 1. It would be a tough reach for a kid unless they loosened their seatbelt. 2. You could lock it out from the touch screen. 3. It might be disabled during driving.

And don't forget the eject button for misbehaving children. However, I believe it can only be activated simultaneously with Ludicrous mode.

Totally off topic but I thought you'd get a kick out of this. My son just got a Volvo XC90 and he can control the middle row headrests from the dash panel. He can make the headrests jump forward and down, giving his misbehaving kids a mild smack in the back of the head. It's a riot, and very effective.:scared:
