Its an expensive way of doing it but upgrading the MCU and optioning the radio module for an extra £400 or so would get you DAB but a total cost of around £2k for a car worth maybe in the high 20k/low 30k might be a tough expensive.

To answer your other question, DAB came with the premium sound option until mid 2015 when it became standard fit.

I don't know how you'd source one or whether it is even a skilled DIY option (as the software would need to be enabled on your car and I know people have had the MCU2 upgrade done with the radio module and Tesla forgot to enable it), but if it was possible, then I imagine there are lots of the modules being ripped out of cars when they have the MCU2 upgrade done.
