HEPA Filter

Hi all

New to the forum. Just bought a Model X 2020.

I thought Bioweapon Defense Mode was standard in the model X. But it looks to be an upgrade.

Is this worth it? My sons have really bad allergies and anything to make it better would be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

It’s standard on all of them now, so if you bought new you should have it.

But if you don’t have it (from an older X), I think it’s just $500 to have the HEPA filter installed and the option enabled on the HVAC controls of the touchscreen.
