    I see the EMEA rear blinkers will be amber. Any idea how or where to get these for the unfortunate USDM Model S owners?

    Probably have to get someone in Europe to order them and ship here.
    I'd be interested in buying them for sure.

    Since the same lights are used for the brakes there will likely be some software changes required as well.

    And perhaps adding another wire to the brake lights. I know I had to do that when I changed my GTI over from reds to ambers. The US spec blinkers used the brake lights and wires. And there wasn't a separate wire for the blinkers.

    Although I'd bet in the Model s it's all software.

    Yep. Was pecking out on my phone and didn't want to type too much ;)

    Will have to wait for a brave/bored European to tear theirs apart for us.
