Good question. I think it was from a DS. It could be as simple as a Christmas card delivered inside the car. Or a P85D shirt. The more I think about it, that seems far more likely than a new feature, LTE, etc. Yep, I'm going with P85D hat, water bottle, or shirt. Shirts are tough because of sizing. Hat, water bottle, or some other item with a Tesla logo.
Ummm, wasn't this just one DS who said "may be" there would be a surprise? Yeah, I'm probably bursting a few bubbles but we're good at getting ourselves excited based on tiny indicators and then we have the big downer when everyone is disappointed.
Maybe you should buy some New Tesla driving gloves they allow you to use touch screens. Of course with a heated steering wheel you wouldn't need gloves.Ugh, no--I love the tactile buttons on the wheel. I especially love that you can operate basic functions without taking your gloves off. I do hope they don't get rid of them in favor of more touch screens.
Do you guys think the heated steering wheel is going to look and feel pretty much exactly like the regular steering wheel, and the only difference is going to be that somehow it is going to be heated internally, or do you think it is going to be a radically different steering wheel?
Just asked my DS and received this word on my P85D order... "I am 99.9% your car will come with the heated steering wheel ..... Your car is in the correct build week and region to receive it." But there's no build sheet for it. The DS also said "There may be one other surprise as well." for which I'm not going to press my luck with finding out what that means. I'm hoping to unwrap my P85D by Christmas and I know what happened when I was 8 years old and discovered my stash of presents early. I'm waiting for delivery to find out...

Just read that somebody's DS said "absolutely no heated steering wheel in 2014" and yet - my DS is saying 99.9% certain. Who knows...
I did want to come back and deflate the "surprise" a bit. I pressed him for it and it's not really a surprise - he said that the automatic closing charge port is now rolling out and is expected to be included in my build. The P85D demo tester had it - but that was already a known "Elon Musk What's New" update. But seemingly not all of the cars made after his announcement have that feature. My DS has been amazing to work with - but I think he spun me up a little much with calling that a "surprise" I was hoping for something secret.
Time to go write another note to my DS...
The powered/auto closing charge port door was announced to be included with the P85D. It would be a miss if a customer car is delivered w/o this feature. Hardly a surprise.
Actually it said "delivered with P85D". I would assume all cars will get it in time.
