Can a heated steering wheel be installed on a 2018 P3D?

Although I love my 2018 P3D, I do wish it had a heated steering wheel. I know some of the most recent Model 3's come with heated steering wheels. Does anyone know if it is possible to have a heated steering wheel installed on a 2018 Model 3 like mine? If so, has anyone had this done and roughly how much does it cost?

Thank you,

This has been discussed in a myriad of posts. Online as well. Apparently it is a major undertaking at minimum. Requires full changes in electrical harnesses and electronics etc. Can’t remember all the deets but it’s out there. I have a 2018 P3D+ and would love the same however after research I’ve gleaned it’s either not really doable or too involved.
Someone has asked if Tesla would eventually offer a retrofit kit and apparently they won’t. YMMV.
