    I went to finalize my order today and to my surprise, gray seats now show December delivery. Has anyone else seen this?

    You should double check your order - I also was waiting for the grey next gen seats before ordering and then checked the Tesla website - the grey next gen seat is not offered - they are offering the ultra white seat.

    You should check again. If you are looking at the 75D and below the grey seats are available. Only the 90 and 100's have the white instead of grey.

    It appears the gray next gen seats are available.

    Another change - selecting the Premium Upgrades option ($3500) now also requires selecting Next Gen Seats ($2500). This could be because the Premium Upgrades now includes cooling ventilated seats, which was previously only available on performance cars.

    Amusingly, the grey does not have the 'recommended' after it.

    Thank you kindly.

    Does anyone know if selecting premium upgrade it means getting a different kind of leather, a la model x?

    Wasn't Premium Upgrades a $3000 package before they added the ventilated seats ? Hard to keep track these days. I got the next gen but, as someone said, ventilated was only for Performance cars.

    Is there any concern of dye transfer from jeans on grey seats. I really like the grey contrast, but I wear jeans a lot and am concerned of the blue color transfer.

    I have not had any problem with dye transfer in my almost 1 yr old 70 with grey Next Gen seats - I wear blue jeans every day. YMMV
