Driving model 3 without front passenger seat?

Has anyone tried to drive a model 3 without a front passenger seat? I could use as much space in the car as I can get and removing the passenger seat would really help but I herd disconnecting the sensors would mess with the car and make it go into park when driving at very low speed. Is that true?

You can drive it but it might display a warning if it can't find the seat sensor. Undetected passenger seat sensors shouldn't cause the car to go into Park.

Once you replace the seat, the warning should go away.

Check in a track driving thread. Some of them remove alot of interior components for weight. Maybe someone has removed the passenger seat. You could maybe DM the guys at mountainpassperformance.
