    Yea, those mats are from the 99 cents store. I put in some nice Lloyd's mat covers and my wife likes the thick carpet on her toes. Taking them out for the winter though. :(
    For those wanting the exit mode I took another forum members advice and set a driver profile to "Exit/Entry" and use it at times.
    I do not have any major complaints about this car, just the usual ones a lot of us have. Mostly with the cheaper interior products. And yet I LOVE this car! I may get the Abstract Ocean LED package

    Ok, if you are consumed with paranoia re warranty, just pull the bloody fuse already. The wiring to seat heaters should be right there under the seat space and is on a fused 12 volt circuit. Golden opportunity to earn your Auto-Electric merit badge.

    Yes! My 2001 GMC Envoy had the same feature. I loved being able to just turn on the seat back!

    I'll add a +1 for separately controllable seat heating settings (not just on/off, but 0-3 for top and bottom). Make the UI a pop-up that appears when you use the combined control; similar to the left/right temperature split mode.

    Yes exactly! I really don't know why it's not an option on so many new cars. Like I said I had it on my 2008 GMC!

    Wonder if this was just a GMC thing? My Cadillac had 3 level heat and 3 level cooled seats, but no individual seat vs. back control which surprised me when I traded the GMC Envoy in for it.

    I used to do this with pizza I'd pick up from a place that didn't deliver. Valid argument.

    It's almost Christmas. Who doesn't like their chestnuts roasting on an open fire?

    I would love to have the option to keep just the back of my heated seat on. The model s is a solid car, but has many refinements as Tesla expands their offerings.

    As the model 3 rolls out, I'm really hoping the model s will move up market in terms of the interior luxury they offer. Tesla dominates in the performance sedan sector, but is really lacking in a smooth refined suspension (comfort setting). Put in a cushy setting to match cushy steering, double paned windows and a bit more noise insulation, and massage seats and you've got me sold for life. For now, when my 90d lease is up I might be shopping the ev offerings due out from MB.

    Just came back from upstate with a 3 hour drive. My "chestnuts" were overheated :) Maybe I will look into a seat cushion;)
