    Just had a loan car as mine is in for some work - my P85 has "special seats" but the P85D loan car which is 6 months younger has the new seats which are WAY better! Is there any way to ay to swap the 2 front seats for ones which are supportive and comfortable?

    Next trick, after reading up on the how-to, is to ask to have your car and the loan car at the same time :cool:

    Yes Next Gen (v3 seats) are arguably the best, preferentially over the Tesla Premiums (v4) but substantially over the original (v1 & v2). Unfortunately they are expensive to purchase and install as they are made to order, so you are looking at $5-$6k if you go through Tesla to buy them. If you get used seats elsewhere you just need to pay for the install, but definitely worth it. I have a friend who upgraded from Performance Seats (v1) to the Next Gens hes a very happy camper now.

    I believe Tesla Abandoned the Next Gens because they as well as the ones beforehand were made by Recaro, and the new Tesla Premium seats were made by another company who Tesla Acquired thus its in-house.
