    From another thread, I just noticed what looks like to be rear vents for the rear facing seats. Can anyone confirm that? Or is just a reflection? If you look at the picture on the C pillar piece, it looks like a vent rear facing. We know the option went up $1500 (or was it $1000?) but don't think a reason was ever determined.

    Isn't that the slot that the seatbelts go into?

    Very recently Tesla added brushed aluminium trim around the slot for the rear outboard seatbelts. It's not on my Model S that would built in July but I saw it on a new one that had the all glass roof.

    Thanks, guess that's maybe why it stuck out at me. Don't remember seeing it there before.
