    My MS 75D was delivered with a “wavy” dashboard on 9.29.17.

    I reported it on 10.2.17 and today it was replaced with the dash that has the Alcantara piece.

    I was browsing and searching the forums and it looks like this was discontinued?

    The service advisor told me it was supposed to come with the Alcantara on the dash. They supposedly replaced it with a part based on my VIN.

    I just wanted to clarify... not that it bothers me. My car finshes production on 9.12.17 if that helps.

    Thanks for any insight.

    Yeah, recent cars don't have this, as far as I know. I know my September production X doesn't, and I thought S's stopped this with the summer changes also. They probably just used a stock part for you. If you like it, so much the better! :D

    My Model S (picked up Sept 30th) doesn't have it either.

    My new inventory Model S manufactured 8/2017 has the alcantara dash. I assume it was just left over inventory since they changed it. I feel like it was an added bonus so no complaints here.

    And I was looking at the 'seam' on my X's dash today... and it looks like the front part (in front, meaning toward to driver, lol) is where the Alcantara used to be. Maybe. I need to find a pic of the old version and compare.

    This is a bummer - that dash touch was nice!

    It is. No need to find a pic.
