I have been reading that the rear seats in the model 3 have been updated. The prior seats were much shorter and someone was saying they have been heightened. Does anyone have 2 images to compare the difference ideally with someone sitting in them?

Thanks!

That’s quite an improvement. Iooks like the new seat is at least 1.5 inches higher than the old seat.

Probably more, no? The caption itself says 2-3 inches higher. But an eyeball test, it looks like about 8cm difference which would be a shade over 3 (3.15) inches. The pictures aren't great, so that might not be right, but it is what it looks like to me.

Grrr I want these newer seats :( I'm going to have to sneak over to my friends late at night and switch my back seats with his (when his arrives).

I hope you're right. I had issues seeing the scale on that measuring stick. The higher the seat, the better!
